Farewell James Jordon


Demonland

Recommended Posts

I’m always sad when a player leaves us. *It’s like when your kid moves out of home. You know it’s best for all involved but you know you’re gonna miss them.

*except they’re not gonna bring their laundry to yours every week. 😁

If he does, MFC laundry staff are going to have so much more trouble with the white than the navy blue...

Travel well James. Just don't cut us up like you cut teams up at Casey!

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.

Can be traded back in some deals as steak knives !!

Pick 39 is respectable in the circumstances.

Valuable enough to lubricate other deals, or maybe hang onto it for that last targeted player that all the other clubs miss in the second round. Maybe just gets cashed for points for the Kynan Brown bid. Who knows? Not me!

Jordon should do fine at Sydney and I wish him all the second-best. :D

End of Round 2 compensation pick… i think that feels fair

I don’t. 23 year old Premiership player. Whole career ahead of him. Ben McKay older and a worse player who has been injury prone and actually quite ordinary, likely pick 3. No way they are 36 picks apart. AFL have said age is a big factor in compo. 

The AFL do what they like.

Anyway we will use it for a player so big deal.

Good luck JJ with Swans and rest of your career.

You’ve got to let this go. 

The pick we got for Frawley was 15-odd better than what Hawthorn got for Buddy. It’s what happens when one club is at the bottom of the ladder and the other is near the top. Plus no matter how much you rate Jordon he was fringe this year (12 games in the 22, 6 more as sub), he will be on a moderate contract because we weren’t rushing to throw him one, and midfielders are of higher supply than key defenders. How you can so clearly say McKay is “worse” than Jordon despite them playing vastly different positions for vastly different clubs is beyond me, too.

Pick 39 is pretty reasonable for a midfielder we clearly weren’t all in for.

I have let it go, as we will use it for a player anyway, so 39, 35 or 30 it will go,  just giving my view on the actual compo.

It will go to Lions or Crows so no real biggie to us, I get your point though.

Btw Is that official compo or a guess?

There are a couple of reasons for the differential. One is the fact that there’s a club out there willing to give McKay a fat contract worth close to $800kpa for starters over a long term and second is the place where we finished the season (6th) compared to where North finished (17th) - on this factor alone JJ compo would be pick 28. It’s a fair deal for us IMO.

    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

    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.

    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
