Farewell James Jordon


Demonland

Recommended Posts

Good luck to him but hard to see how he gets a game in Sydneys midfield rotation. They've got far better outside mids and he's not an inside bull or tagger. They've got elite half backs, so he'll likely have to learn how to play half forward flank if he's to get another chance at AFL...

We'll likely get a third round compo pick for him. Fairly useless at draft but could potentially be part of a package to trade up hopefully.

He is young and will get a reasonable contract, so he is not 3rd round. More likely beginning of 2nd round at worst.

I think as a supporter base in general we underestimate Jimmy Jordon’s ability and scope for improvement.

I dare say if he didn’t find himself in the (for him) fortuitous situation where he is an “early” FA, he would not be moving clubs.

I think he’d still be moving, because clubs generally force trades through with out of contract players. But it wouldn’t be for money or length of deal.  It would be a very similar situation with Bedford last year where we matched the contract but couldn’t convince him that he’d get more chances. 

I don’t think our coaches made mistakes not playing JJ. Just a reality that you aren’t ready until you’re ready some times. The only other consideration would be could we have moved players out to demonstrate our eagerness to give someone a bigger role. Ie. Moved Spargo last year to help keep Bedford. But I don’t see a on baller to move to keep JJ, especially when he’s going to get a free agent chunk of cash above normal offers.

I think that's very hard to believe.  How did you like his SF game?

We wanted to keep Bedford and we offered him a 3 year contract and were sorry to lose him.  I'd be disappointed if we offered JJ a 3 year contract.

Given the way Essendon and the Saints are rorting things. We should do something with the Swans such as

Swans pay Jordon enough to make it 2nd round compo or similar.

Melbourne returns the compo pick back to the Swans and we trade 13 for 11 and 25 for 23.

Moves our first and second round picks up the draft a bit, if it's a 3rd round pick it's not probably going to be used by MFC anyway.

I think we will be after 11 without giving up 13. Any picks we have or get, from and including 13, will imo, be up for bundling in trade, to get higher picks than 11.

Im thinking outside the box here.

Say we dont have a big fish on the hook and we suddenly have a fair bit of salary cap space - jordan, hibberd, harmes, grundy. Thats well over $1 mil spare

could to benefit us, we trade grundy to swans and say we pay sydney his 600k salary for a year. And even 400k the year after but bringbit forward to next near
 

they give us pick 11

sydney pays some of that money to jordan and it inflates his value per the comenatory pick we get. So it ends up being a first or end of first round?

 

jordan wins the most out of this but also sydney get grundy and and extra mil in the cap for a year. Melb get a decent trade value and conpenstation pick for grundy and jordan.

 

 

There’s out of the box and then there’s…..

WTF! Do you work for the Swans List team.

650k is a steal for Grundy considering what that [censored] over at Norff is demanding.

As for JJ.

Surprised he found a new home TBH.

We wont get much for him. The Grundy deal is far more serious and its also the AFL love child Sidee Swans.

At worst? ND20 at worst? 

Prepare to be disappointed 

Won't ND 20 end up about 26-27?

We either get that for a young Premiership player, who has walked through FA, or we get end of 2nd round, which will be about ND 45, unless I am badly miscalculating.

Do you think 45 is fair compensation for JJ?

The flipside is that assuming North get bottom of round 1 for McKay is he rated as one pick difference?

It's the MFC we are talking about Mr. Leg. AFL will say 4th. After the Brayshaw [censored].

Why would you trade 13 and 11 for 25 and 23, doesn't make sense. I see us using our 3rd round picks this year for we possibly have up to 8 or 9 delistings or retirements ahead of us. Either we use the fill-in-the-player negotiations swap period for spaces or we upgrade our back-end bundling them for points to snag higher picks.

I just can’t see end of first round unless Sydney and us get very ‘creative’.

Second round is fair, but the system is stupid so that makes the pick quite late.

Third round isn’t unreasonable if he’s not getting a big wage, but again, system and that draft itself is a mess so let’s hope that isn’t the case so we don’t get pick 55+.

Really the compensation should be the cap space and we should use it to sign a more suitable player. It should be JJ out, McAdam in as both (or neither) should be free agents.

Bummed to see him go.

Great pick up for Sydney,they have the outside class and needed the big inside body to swap out with Parker.

Anyone who says JJ isn't an inside mid hasn't watched VFL over the past 2 years.  This is his best role and was never going to get a crack at it with Clarry, Viney, Trac and Brayshaw.  

Watch him for Fantasy next yr!

Paperwork lodged apparently , off to Sydney. No details of length of contract.

For a 22 year old , premiership player 65 games into a career and last game starting 22 in a final. I'd be disappointed with anything less than pick after our second round pick 

I reckon it will be a 3rd rounder

    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

    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
