Farewell James Jordon


Demonland

Recommended Posts

Meh, another draft pick to add to our war chest. JJ had some games where I thought wow he's playing well today, and others where I had to double check if he was selected. Not the type of player we'd over value and be desperate to keep, right call by both parties.

Depends on the contract he is leaving on. Could be for no return.

Good player. played 65 games in 3 years (51 games if you don't count sub as games)

Probably the most unlucky player ever. Played 25 games in his first season in 2021 but did not play in the GF.  Just brutal

Wish him all the best

He has a premiership medal for being the sub in the GF.

He may not have got on the ground but it could have been far worse (see, eg, McStay, Adams and Noble this year, or Rich and Gardiner/Payne for Brisbane).

You guys that don’t care are crazy his young and a little inconsistent but his a good player his still early 20s

I agree. It's not like we've got fantastic midfield depth. He was constantly sub this year, which would make it difficult to get consistency of performance. And yet most on here expected JJ to come into a final and perform at a high level.

Like Bedford, I can see JJ performing well at a new club.

Only 22 so has plenty of upside just needs to be played on the ball more that’s always where he looks best. Not sure the swans will be any easier to break into than dees. Might have been better off going to a weaker team like wc or north where he could cement a spot

Thought Jordon had a rough run in & out of the side BUT you can't dispute that he had plateaued.  Wish him luck but not devo at this announcement.   

Unfortunately for JJ, he was stuck in and couldn’t work his way out of the bottom 6 players getting chosen, the ones we need to improve upon to go deeper in finals. He has virtually no weapons in his repertoire and is a meat and potatoes footballer (not a bad thing, just not what we need).

Good luck to him 👍

Pardon?

Given he’s a free agent, we only get a pick if the AFL gives it to us, and one of the key considerations appears to be the terms of the new contract. So if he’s not on big bucks in the new deal at Sydney, we may not get any compensation, bearing in mind he was clearly a fringe player for us.

Fascinating.  Has the AFL never not given compensation for a required player?

I don't see any difference between McStay or Jordon's situation. Neither played in a GF. One just got a medal for some bizarre reason

If he doesn’t go on big coin there’s every chance we don’t get anything.

there was interest from several clubs so you'd imagine he'll get a 3-4 year deal on >400K

any idea what comp that would result in?

    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

    CENTIMETRES by Whispering Jack

    Our game is one where the result is often decided by centimetres; the touch of a fingernail, a split-second decision made by a player or official, the angle of vision or the random movement of an oblong ball in flight or in its bounce and trajectory. There is one habit that Melbourne seems to have developed of late in its games against Carlton which is that the Demons keep finding themselves on the wrong end of the stick in terms of the fine line in close games at times when centimetres mak

    MELBOURNE BUSINESS by The Oracle

    In days of old, this week’s Thursday night AFL match up between the Demons and the Blues would be framed on the basis of the need to redress the fact that Carlton “stole” last year’s semi final away from Melbourne and with it, their hopes for the premiership.  A hot gospelling coach might point out to his charges that they were the better team on the night in all facets and that poor kicking for goal and a couple of lapses at the death cost them what was rightfully theirs. Moreover, now was
