    Re: The Jones Boy - I will declare it now - he is going to be a star

    I just hope Jones reaches a point this season where his position in the side isn't questioned. Kind of like Roughead last year.

    He has the talent for it.

    The thing I like is that he has obviously been working hard on his kicking which was apparent late last year. He has a totally different approach to what he used to do.

    Key game coming up. If he can kick 2-4, lead appropriately (not under the flight) and keep the work rate where it has been to date he will get elevated into my tagline

    I'm more hopeful. I'm not yet convinced.

    A bit like Pavlov's Dogs, I hope this dog equates the song, screaming and happiness is connected to working hard like he did today. I couldn't be happier with his game.

    His work rate today was fantastic, I reckon he's one more pre-season away from reaching his potential.

    That chase will be played at the best and fairest. That had Footscray written all over it. The goals were nice, but he gets the most points for his defensive game today IMO.

    Which one? I think he won 3 holding the ball frees Fir the game. Epically good from a 196cm key forward.

    I really like his goal kicking technique. He really goes for it straight and hard - to use an analogy, sort of like Miley Cyrus is on the bed in front of him.

    We've seen these false dawns before when he'll string a few weeks together and fall of the face of the Earth. Must do it consistently now

    The Jones boy played like he wanted to hurt someone today, a fantastic game and one of many to come we all hope. Seemed to work well with Cramers and Grant today well done guys!

    Looking forward - Naughton, Darcy and JUH. It will be the envy of everyone.

    I think it was Clinton Young. Just absolute desperation and work ethic. He showed all the guts and determination he had in his body, and he damn sure inspired me.

    He was epic. Winning me over.

    I would have been devastated if we lost as a fan but I would have been more hurt for Jones who did miss a crucial goal late. If we lost that would have been the kind of thing that could crush the spirits of the young man. Well done to him today, he was terrific.
