Great debut.  James McDonald presented him his jumper. So lovely to have him back at the club. A real Melbourne champion. 

Great insight into the pathway James has undertaken in getting to this level. https://www.aflplayers.com.au/news-feed/stories/jordons-defining-leap-towards-an-afl-career?fbclid=IwAR2ZwMns04Q8Kosw

Isn't it great to be able to develop picks at Casey rather than "Great White Hoping" them.

Anyone know how this fella is tracking? Was really hoping he would push for selection this year but hasnt seemed to get near it

He was sounding like being close to selection when his finger came off 2nd best against a dumbbell.

Very solid debut by JJ.  Commentators saying Jordan Lewis compared him to 2002 Brownlow Medallist Simon Black. 

He actually reminded me of Joel Corey.  Here’s hoping he can build a great career at the Dees in the Number 23.

I really liked 2 parts of his game. 

1. He pops in to dangerous areas of space especially in the corridor. I don’t know if it’s smarts, work rate or both but it’s good to see. 

2. Whilst I hate the pre tackling that is allowed it seems Jordon’s very good at it, he’ll lock on to an opponent and make sure he gets them 

His kicking is interesting, nice low trajectory but it worries me he seems to hit a bunch of them thin. Hopefully he keeps working on it and becomes reliable or even better than that.

I genuinely thought I was watching James McDonald playing for us again yesterday.

And it’s not because this dude was wearing number 23. Well, not entirely because of that.

He seems to be the type of hard working, no nonsense, selfless, working class but effective, midfielder we’ve been missing.

A cracking debut. Very close to BOG in the first half.

He really is a two way player. Even when he was quiet, he'd bob up with a smother, tackle or shepherd.

Here's hoping he can build on that.

Our younger up and coming players seem to all have a good amount of composure to them. Probably something to do with not being thrown in the deep end and being allowed to develop. Anyway....it’s good to see, solid debut by JJ.

Here's hoping he becomes such a good player that is widely recognised to the extent that people realise his surname is spelled Jordon and not Jordan.  I know, I know, it's a forlorn hope.  :D

Upon replay viewing he was a lot more than solid.

That was a very impressive first outing after missing a whole year footy.  He seems to have some polish too and adds some silk to the midfield, something we needed in there.

Now to be greedy it would be good to see him getting around 20 possessions consistently the rest of the season.

Comparing him to “junior “. Is a huge call.   I do hope your correct. He  had a really nice debut. Not over the top but at times he had an important presence. He popped up at crucial times.  
 
better than I thought he would go but then the FD always phone for my recommendations. 
good luck to JJ

    FROZEN by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne supporters are an unusual lot. Their lived experiences over years of witnessing their team’s humiliation at the hands of the competition’s bullies have left them suspended in a Bizarro World beset by a cognitive distortion know as 'mental filtering'. This is a phenomenon that occurs when people focus exclusively and blindly on long held belief systems. They refuse to accept that conditions have changed so when the evidence is present before their very own eyes, their minds are frozen.

    CHANGES: 2021 MID SEASON by The Oracle 

    Since the end of the 2020 free agency, trade and draft period, AFL clubs have had two further bites of the cherry to top up their lists — the supplemental selection period (SSP) and the 2021 mid-season rookie draft (MSD). The main idea behind both was to enable the fulfillment of immediate needs as a result of injuries or unexpected retirements but this year, we have seen the added dimension of straight out recruitment for the future rather than for now. As a consequence, a number of ready

    LION TAMERS by George On The Outer

    In an enthralling game between two top four sides, it was the Demons who tamed the Lions, and propelled themselves into the position of premiership favourite even though the season is barely past the halfway mark. This is because Melbourne keeps on beating those teams around them who might provide a challenge. Not only that, it keeps winning with emphatic displays of resilience and toughness that have not been seen in a Demons side for many, many years. Challenged in the first half of

    DUELING BANJOS by Whispering Jack

    In the classic Australian poem, A B “Banjo” Paterson sought the answer by letter to a question concerning the whereabouts of a drover named “Clancy”. The response from Clancy’s shearing mate was written with a thumb-nail dipped in tar: “Clancy’s gone to Queensland droving, and we don’t know where he are.” Most of us would have felt a little bit that way earlier in the week wondering about the possible whereabouts of the Melbourne team for this week’s encounter against Brisbane. Were th

    DOGGED DEEFENCE by George on the Outer

    “No-one let the Dogs out” was the Demons response for the (former) top side.  The Melbourne defence, capably lead by Steven May and Jake Lever simply suffocated any hopes that the Western Bulldogs might have had about leading the competition at the mid-way point. Instead, it is the Demons who now sit at the top of the ladder, again a game clear, while their supporters are starting to believe that this side is the real deal.  Pity is that those same supporters couldn’t watch their team demol

    LOOK AWAY DEMON FANS by The Oracle

    Last week I predicted a comfortable Melbourne victory for its game against Adelaide. “Something in the order of 61 points”, I opined. Well, after the game, I checked the wording of my preview very carefully from all angles and I have now concluded that I have to issue an apology to Demon fans. I got it wrong. I’m not bitter and twisted about my error in failing to predict the coaching errors, defensive mistakes, lack of forward pressure and, of course, the complete failure of those officiat

    CALM BEFORE THE CALM by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons overcame a sluggish first half to run over the Sydney Swans in the second to record an emphatic 40 point victory, maintaining their undefeated record and retaining top spot on the VFL ladder. The game originally listed as part of the Round 4 fixture but delayed due to a Covid19 scare in Sydney and the scrappy way in which the teams approached the contest suggested that the players were still in delay mode. This applied in particular to most of the 12 AFL listed Casey player

    NOTHING TO CROW ABOUT by George On The Outer

    Melbourne’s nine game winning streak  came to an end in Adelaide with a one point loss to the Crows. Losing to a team that had only won three games for the season, having lost five in a row was certainly nothing to crow about.  All around the ground players collectively put in their poorest performance for the year.  The loss of Christian Salem before the match was critical, as his replacement Nev Jetta is a mere shadow the player he once was. The mind is still willing, but the body no

    CRYING OVER SPILT MILK by The Oracle

    It had to happen sooner or later. Melbourne has been riding high through the season to date and, with the exception of a small bunch of nuff nuffs who are never satisfied with anything, the club has attracted more positive vibes from the community in these nine weeks than it did in the past decade. So it came as no surprise to see some low grade stirring of the sort which only the media could come up with at a time like this. The on line site Zero Hanger came up with an article that opined,

    CATNIPPED by KC from Casey

    After winning big away from home across the first three rounds of the new look VFL competition, the Casey Demons were forced to dig deep against Geelong VFL at Casey Fields on Saturday. The traditional AFL based teams were evenly matched, fielding ten listed players apiece and this was reflected in the evenness of the game and the final margin which saw the home side leading by a solitary point on the final siren. Casey suffered an early blow when Jake Bowey came off with what ap

    BLUES IN THE RED by George On The Outer

    While the Demons’ undefeated run continues unabated now at 9-0 their emphatic 26 point victory pushed the Blues to their sixth loss for the season and deeper into the red for the year. While Melbourne opened proceedings with an early goal, the Blues responded with the next two to grab an early lead.  However, as has happened in so many games this year, the Demons fought back to lead by just over a goal come the first break. This narrow lead was part of a streak either side of quarter t

    THE EYE OF THE STORM by Whispering Jack

    When Melbourne monstered Richmond a few weeks back on the MCG thereby registering their sixth win on the trot, the block of games to follow looked highly appealing. After a stirring victory in difficult conditions over the reigning premier, the games to come were against a quartet of low achievers from 2020. North were winless, the Swans were the early high flyers now falling into a slump, Carlton couldn’t take a trick and the Crows had just lost an unloseable game to the Hawks in Launceston. Ev
