He been a terriffic player for the MFC for many a year and have been the Red and Blue Blood that defines character. Getting to the end of a career is always hard but , his contributions, character, skill, and decisions like this can define a club.guts and determination have been second to none.  GO DEES.

Ways to kill a football club and destroy a team: drop their ex captain and longest servant on the eve of his 300th game, which he has earnt after putting his body on the line for a crap team for over a decade. 
Will. Not. Happen.

I agree with both of you. He should put his hand up and ask for a couple of weeks off “managed”, then play his 300th in a home game at the G against Sydney, and then retire. It was interesting in the Best 22 thread how few people had him in it - and apparently Goody agrees.

There is no easy way to say this but, the club must come first, we have a huge challenge next week vs Richmond. The need for pace will be paramount. I feel that, in view of matchups and balance it may be best for the club to hold back his 300th milestone! If he play heartiest congratulations but I would not play him next week. Too  much at stake GO DEES.

It's either him or Spargo if Fritsch gets up. Hopefully it's Spargo. May obviously comes in for Petty if he is fit. Mitch unfortunately gets replaced by Weid.

If Jones gave two hoots about this club he would drop himself this week or call out a blighty. He has all season to get his 300. His form has declined from workmanlike to ordinary to now poor so far this season. He knows he’s playing lousy football and way off the pace. He’s being selfish.

JOnes was bog ordinary today, but I would still play him, I would expect him to lift for his 300th and I would also expect his team to lift and bust their guts to give this Melbourne champion a big win in hi milestone game.

I am absolutely disgusted at this thread. If anybody apart from Robby Flower deserved to play his 300 th game it is this bloke. And the reward he gets from it is slagging of the first order.          

Can we please enjoy the moment !!!

Having just listened to Goodwin’s Presser, Jones will play. 
I don’t think he should, but i am not in the Coaches Box. 
Goodwin says he is playing a specific role (was slow to get going today, but improved)

Jones has been slow for 3 years...

Agree

And yep, I hope Spargo is the out for Fritsch. He highlighted his limitations today by continually trying to muscle out his opponent, and failing

Why end "Robust Debate"? Yes Junior Mc Donald was crucified but I'm not ending his Jones career

No you’re doing an even worse thing. You’re robbing him of a milestone that he has rightfully earnt after years of carrying a rubbish team on his shoulders.

A good strong club would never do that.

Robbie Flower retired as our leading goal kicker in 1987. But he knew his time was up and when to bow out.

You are 100% right.  He was a ghost today.  Richmond will eat us alive if we are carrying passengers.

He has all season to play his 300th.

    THE BLOW by Whispering Jack

    Narrm’s finals prospects took a crushing blow after the team’s insipid performance at Optus Stadium against a confident Waaljit Marawar in the first of its Doug Nicholls Round outings for 2024.  I use the description “crushing blow” advisedly because, although the season is not yet at it’s halfway mark, the Demons have now failed abysmally in two of their games against teams currently occupying bottom eight places on the ladder.  The manner in which these losing games were played out w

    HALF FULL by KC from Casey

    It was a case of the Casey Demons going into a game with a glass half full in their match up against the Brisbane Lions at Casey Fields on Saturday. As the list of injured and unavailable AFL and VFL listed players continues to grow and with Melbourne taking all three emergencies to Perth for the weekend on a “just in case” basis, its little brother was always destined to struggle. Casey was left with only eight AFL listed players from who to select their team but only two - an out-of-form

    GAMEDAY: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    It's Game Day and the Demons have returned to the site of their drought breaking Premiership to take on the West Coast Eagles in what could very well be a danger game for Narrm at Optus Stadium. A win and a percentage boost will keep the Dees in top four contention whilst a loss will cast doubt on the Dees flag credentials and bring them back to the pack fighting for a spot in the 8 as we fast approach the halfway point of the season.

    WARNING by William from Waalitj

    As a long term resident of Waalitj Marawar, I am moved to warn my fellow Narrm fans that a  danger game awaits. The locals are no longer the easybeats who stumbled, fumbled and bumbled their way to the good fortune of gathering the number one draft pick and a generational player in Harley Reid last year. They are definitely better than they were then.   Young Harley has already proven his worth with some stellar performances for a first year kid playing among men. He’s taken hangers, k

    OVER YET? by KC from Casey

    The Friday evening rush hour clash of two of the VFL’s 2024 minnows, Carlton and the Casey Demons was excruciatingly painful to watch, even if it was for the most part a close encounter. I suppose that since the game had to produce a result (a tie would have done the game some justice), the four points that went to Casey with the win, were fully justified because they went to the best team. In that respect, my opinion is based on the fact that the Blues were a lopsided combination that had
