Rising Star Rd 08: James Jordon

Recommended Posts

Grats young fella.

Has had a great start to his career and shows how valuable a reasonably long apprenticeship in the 2's is.

Surprised me how good he has been tbh. I have never bagged him (iirc) but didnt have a great deal of confidence that he would play as well as he has. I have been consuming my share of humble pie this year i must say.

Love that he’s got the recognition.

Great little bit of development by the club I reckon - this is his third season on the list, but he just simmers away in the background until he’s ready, and makes an immediate impact when he forces his way in. 

Really enjoyed his year so far and looking forward to seeing how far he can take it.

This guy is already a solid citizen in the best performed team this season. There would not be one teammate who wouldn't be happy to see Jordon in the vicinity, nor one opponent who would be expecting to easily avoid being tackled by this bloke. 

Well deserved gong !!!!

All reports prior to the season said he was flying and almost a lock for the first game.  Fair to say i for one did not expect him to play so well.  He is not BOG every week but playing really well and deserves all the kudos from earlier in the year. Definitely a regular and first pick in the 22,   Well done.

Congratulations JJ. 

Didn't know if he was going to make it, but he's exactly the balance we need in our midfield. Can play inside and outside, great defensive side to his game. Good user of the footy.

The older types on here will remember when a bloke by the name of Andrew Obst came over to join the Dees.

Can't recall exactly who said it, but clearly remember one of the team staff claiming that he would be a "mild sensation".

This young fella has a bit of Andrew Obst about him. Not necessarily his game style, but his worth to the team.

He and me mates still call Hunt "the new Oba". Highest compliment we've got for number 29.

This shows the value of developing our kids at VFL level and blooding them when ready. From the time Junior presented him with his jumper and the way he performed in his first game I knew we had a solid mid. Great result and great numbers in the midfield.

Reminds me of Junior. Tough bugger. 
Big fan. 

Seeing him in #23 brings back those memories.

    TRAINING: Tuesday 28th May 2024

    Veteran Demonland Trackwatcher Kev Martin returned to the training track to bring you the following observations from Gosch's Paddock this morning. Beautiful morning for training. The dew has dried, out from AAMI, quiet chatting. Maysie does his heart symbol. 7 in rehab, Turner, Hore, Sestan, BBB, Petty, Spargo and Schache. All in runners. Melky weighted and change of angles work. Salem has his individual program. White cap (no contact), Howes, Woewodin and Sparrow

    GALLANT by KC from Casey

    The world “gallant” is not one that is readily acceptable to losing teams in our game of football so when it was used in the context of the Casey Demons’ loss to Sandringham in yesterday’s match at Casey Fields, it left a bitter taste in the mouth.  The Demons went into the game against the St Kilda affiliated Zebras with the advantage of playing on their home turf (not that this has been a major asset in 2024) and with very little else going in their favour. The Saints have close to a full

    MEANWHILE by Whispering Jack

    … meanwhile, at about the same time that Narrm was putting its feet on the accelerator to obliterate the long-suffering Euro-Yroke combination, I heard someone mention in passing that Kuwarna was leading Waalitj Marawar by a whopping 46 to 1 halfway through the second quarter of their game over in Adelaide. “What is football coming to?” I asked myself.  In front of my eyes, the Demons were smashing it through the midfield, forcing turnovers and getting the footy to their forwards who w

    HEAVEN OR HELL by The Oracle

    Clashes between Melbourne and St Kilda are often described as battles between the forces of heaven and hell. However, based on recent performances, it’s hard to get excited about the forthcoming match between these two sides. It would be fair to say that, at the moment, both of these teams are in the doldrums. The Demons have become the competition’s slow starters while the Saints are not only slow to begin, they’re not doing much of a job finishing off their games either. About the only th
