Farewell James Jordon


Demonland

Recommended Posts

6 minutes ago, whatwhat say what said:

he had a heap of opportunity and was shown to be good but not good enough to be an a-list midfielder

good depth, which is what he'll provide at the swans too

I'm not saying he would fill the hole but i assume the depth would be handy. I guess we'll find out round 1.

As I said hindsight is 20/20.

Everything i've read said he was "ok without being outstanding" in Sydney's sim today. That is exactly how he played at Melbourne.

We need to move on. Sparrow is entering his prime, RIvers is ready to go to another level, Woewodin could be anything, and Billings could be a great addition once he finds his groove. There are plenty of players available to fill the small shoes left by Jordon.

Agree and when he had chance in finals last year against Blues was a no show!

Depth but no star!

I  am confident Jordon will accumulate well on the postage stamp that is the SCG and hopefully carve out a quality career. He had his chances at MFC and did not take them and was too like for some others we have. He was also exposed in other positions on the wider MCG expanses,The Brayshaw retirement does not change the situation with he nor Harmes in my view. Brayshaw had hardly played midfield til late in the year and has not when we were at our best. We need to take this opportunity to inject some difference into our CBAs whether that be Pickett, Salo, Laurie, Rivers  or other.

Apparently played well in todays scratch match. Could well be this years Bedford.

Goody and co just haven’t been able to convince young fringe players to stay. They’ve been given contracts, opportunity and the chance to go to good clubs in a great city, but it’s disappointing.

I don’t have any issues with the way guys weren’t picked for certain games. You can’t do selection via hindsight. JJ got a good run in 2022 and didn’t really do anything to suggest he had to stick in the side permanently last year.

I have some issue that players weren’t convinced to stay with others moved out to accomodate them. And I guess in JJ’s case I’m not over the moon about Hunter taking his spot and being no better. 

Played well in a scratch match?

Spare me yet another “DeeSpencer doesn’t like Hunter” post, FFS.

Jordon had significant opportunity here, far more than Bedford (who, by the way, is fast becoming the most overrated player in the league), and never did enough to warrant us doing more than we did to keep him.

Agree we should always thank anyone who represents the MFC and wish them well if they leave on good terms - JJ ticks this box

The reality is that our list needs more leg speed than less and while JJ was a solid player speed is not his strength

With our list having some changes, some by design, other forced upon us now is the time to try and get some more genuine pace and some elite balls users - oh a couple of quality tall KP players would be handy too 😀

    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
