He is only 20! 

Take a minute to absorb that performance.

On any other day that is a BOG performance.   That honour goes to Viney.

Watching at the ground, thought be was a beast around the stoppage. 9 tackles, hard tackles too, plus the unquantifiable pressuring, scrapping, hunting. 

He's immense in the little things and serviceable in the key areas.

Has great link up hands. 

I now think we play him 70% ruck and Gawn out of the goal square, Fritch around the 40.

I was sitting with a neutral supporting friend and he was continually singing Jackson's praises. What a footballer! What an athlete! He can do anything! Etc etc. This never got boring, and what he said was all true.

Maybe we're all on the wrong train... offer Gawn to Freo for three first rounders.....

Pretty sure some Wag on here said that by observing how Jackson played, would tell us whether he was going to sign a contract or not...

ps... I would have posted this if i had a poor game as well, or even a middling... none of these things would be instructive of anything.

And I'm still waiting for the explanation of exactly what could be deduced from either a good or a poor performance.   Now we know it was good, the job should be easier so I'm expecting the Wag to tell us the contractual situation.

As the #1 ruckman he was unbelievable last night gave our midfield a different dynamic - what we may lose in some hitouts as he's not a big ruckman we gain so much in his ability to play as a genuine mid, his power out of the stoppages, his handball skills its like having a giant Clarrie in there!

Love Jacko, and would love him to stay, but if we want sustained success the conversation will be happening asking Jackson what he wants and if it’s to leave you look after #1 and get the best deal for the club moving forward Oscar Allen and a first round pick gets it done for me.

#1 pick Tom Scully leaving effectively got us Hogan who got us May

AA defender Frawley leaving gets us an extra first rounder seeing us nab Bradshaw and Trac

I dare say Trac, Gus and May were all vitally important in us winning the flag last year.  No player is bigger than the club, keep evolving and improving I have great faith in Jason Taylor making the right decisions

Trades can't been seen in isolation but part of a bigger plan.  Though I expect Taylor doesnt want to try and find a replacement quite yet.  :)

Anyone who can’t see that this guy is a once in a generation unicorn is kidding themselves. 

Plenty of evidence in this thread of posters who can't see that.

Surreal.

If I was looking to meet with LJ and try and entice him, then it sure wouldn’t be in a public forum like a Mordialloc cafe!

    GAMEDAY: Rd 11 vs St. Kilda

    It's Game Day and after 2 losses on the trot the Dees must win against the Saints today at the MCG to keep in touch with the Top 4. A loss today will see them drop out of the Top 8 for the first time since 2020.

    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

    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

    VOTES: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    POSTGAME: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    Many warned that this was a danger game and the Demons were totally outclassed all game by a young Eagles team at Optus Stadium in Perth as they were defeated by 35 points.

    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.
