Tony Jones says Jordan De Goey ‘probably should never pull on a Collingwood jumper again’
Tony Jones says Collingwood midfielder Jordan De Goey “probably should never pull on a Collingwood jumper again” after an alleged incident at a Halloween party in New York.
The 25-year-old has has been charged with forcibly touching and assault, leaving his career at the crossroads.
He pleaded not guilty to the charges after spending the night in a jail cell, and was released with orders to appear in court again on December 8.
He’s been indefinitely stood down by Collingwood.
“He’s got too many black marks next to his name,” Tony Jones said on 3AW Mornings.
“And it’s sad to say that because he’s obviously got talent, and you only needed to see that from what he was able to produce on the football field this year.
“But when you’ve got sponsors who effectively run clubs these days, no sponsor is going to want Jordan De Goey running around a football field being paid very good money, with their name on that jumper.
“He’s obviously got issues, he’s got some really, really big issues to navigate his way through at the moment in the legal system in the United States …
“So, Jordan De Goey, I’m afraid, is probably not going to play AFL football again, and to my mind that’s a good thing.”
