Farewell James Jordon


Demonland

Recommended Posts

Disappointing to see James Jordon leave.

But I totally understand his situation. He wants to play more midfielder minutes for an AFL Club.

Greatful of all he did as a Demon and as a substitute who unfortunately never got onto the ground in the Grand Final for the 2021 AFL Premiership. That was a shame. But at least he received a Premiership Medallion!

Definitely a handy player for us!

I wish "JJ" all the best for the future (except against the Demons) at his new home over at the Swans.

Just an old man’s quirk, but I’ve always had a soft spot for Demons number 23. 
 

Some of my favorites -  players who had a bit of X factor or were fan favorites in their day:

Geoff Tunbridge

Kelly O’Donnell

James McDonald

Kevin Dyson

 

and of course Clarko when he was with us. 

James Jordon certainly fits the enigma of number 23. Will be the only player ever in V/AFL to win a premiership without setting foot on the ground in the Grand Final.

At least Peter McLean 1964 and Cameron Mooney in 1999.

Great club man and servant.

Never met him but gave the impression he was a very humble, hard working chap.

Unlucky not to get on the park in the GF but then again so was chunk.

Good luck at the Swans and hope he gets to play a few finals (preferably not against us).

29 disps (23 kicks 6 hballs), 8 marks and a goal in Rd 13 26-pt loss to Collingwood at the MCG (13 Jun 2022)

Couldnt do it every week but was a great game 

Its a shame but he was a momentum killer with us Swans may use him differently

I hope no melbourne supporter boos him next year. JJ has been a good player for us and dueto our elite midfield it was always  going to be hard for him to grab a spot. 

So I hope he gets his opportunity at sydney and goes well for them. 

Agreed, he shouldn’t get booed. Can’t blame the guy for seeking better opportunities.

And given some MFC supporters were actively cheering on Luke Jackson in our loss to Fremantle last year, I don’t think there’ll be any booing issues for JJ.

Yes right now JJ was only depth, but in a few years he may not have been.  I'm beginning to think that we need to do more to keep players in his age demographic to sustain the team in the years we will be comming to soon when the Viney, Tracs and Brayshaw, Langdon, Hunter etc cohort start to fall away.  Similarly players like Bedford.  And great teams need good depth.

I partially understand Jordan's reason to move, but when he's going to a club where the midfield will be similarly strong to ours, that becomes a little less understandable.

I'd actually be inclined to boo him and Bedford in the future.

Are Sydney getting another 80% extra with COLA? Rumoured to be splashing cash and have a star studded team. Understand Bud left, but wow 

They saved $12m missing out on Naughton.

I will watch Jimmy the kid Jordon have 28 touches a game in his sleep in the well oiled machine that is the Sydney Swom then flick over to watch Sparrow's 14 touches and six fumbles a week thinking what could have been

...and you are, of course, staking your reputation on this prediction, Adonski

It wouldn't surprise to find that JJ ends up in the same position he was in at the Dees but paying 10-20% more per month on his digs for the privilege.

    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
