Nothing to clarify
You heard!
Definitely not trolling
His only real good year was on the gear
It's easier to play defence these days
The $750 k a year saints paid him plus the trade is really over the top
Jones is better and cheaper

Jon Patton had 23 touches, 13 marks (6 contested!) and kicked 4.2 today.

Granted it was against Brisbane, but that makes Jones's effort against him a couple of weeks ago all the more impressive.

Patton is not just some lumbering old-school dinosaur, he's a damn fine forward.... Well, when he's not being sacrificed at the Temple of Liam Jones, that is.

Even MM claiming credit with the Beast form:eek::eek::eek:

Of course I was only at Carlton for eight games in 2015 so I didn’t get to coach Liam for long, but at the end of last year he approached me about weighing up his options as he felt his days at the Blues were numbered.

I told him to hang in there for as long as he could, and to continue to put the effort in.Effort usually has its rewards, and in this case it was accepting the challenge of a move to defence.

Richmond did a really good job of getting Riewoldt away from him. Jones was still quite good.

They did, but that was kind of our own fault for not being able to adjust and correct our structures with that. I guess it is kind of a big compliment to Jones that they obviously pre-planned to try get Jack away from him like they did.

Another good performance by Jones. Back line were copping a flogging with the number of entries the Tigers had, with little support from our mids. Still, he at least halved almost every contest. Noice.

I shat all over him before he returned to the 1's but I have to say he has impressed me mightily.

our midfield was a gigantic black hole today which will always put pressure on the backs and make them look worse, but I have no complaints about the way Jones played today. battled hard and won his fair share of contests. good brahhhhh

Today was the first time I actually got to watch Jonesy (and all the hype) play in the team. And I was impressed. He can stay. He must been the first forward turn back we've had that has actually worked out.

Seems like Bolts was trying to avoid LJ spending too much time on JR. Thought he did his best work very late in the game.

They talk about Martin being the best contested player in the afl but jones beat him 1 on 1 3 tines while Cripps beat him at the other end for a goal. I know we lost but I'm super proud of the effort v the tigers. Jones v ASOS returning could be an interesting selection dilemma. It might cost marchbank, Weitering or plowman their spots which is going to only improve the competitive edge of our backline.

ASOS wins hands down. A lot cooler under pressure.

Loving what LJ has brought to the backline, and this is just a thought, but is he now a possible factor in a trade for Kelly?

That would be nice, but very unlikely unfortunately.
