Jeremy Cameron informs Greater Western Sydney that he will
explore free agency with Geelong being his preferred destination.
"We are disappointed by this news, having tabled what we believe to have been a suitable offer to retain Jeremy," Giants head of football Jason McCartney said.
"With Jeremy being a restricted free agent, we have a number of avenues to now explore to get the best possible outcome for the Giants."
Wednesday, 5 August 2020
Leon Cameron says he believes that free agents Jeremy Cameron and Zac Williams will remain at the club beyond 2020.
"My gut tells you, in a short answer, that those two boys will be running around in the Giants colours for another four or five years. They love the place," Cameron said.

Nine players received more
than $1 million in the 2019 AFL season, with Dustin Martin and Nat Fyfe the standout earners.
It is believed Martin and Fyfe each earnt more than $1.3 million on 2019 accounts, well clear of the game's other million-dollar players headed by West Coast's Jeremy McGovern, GWS's Jeremy Cameron and Sydney's Lance Franklin.
Others in, or near, the million-dollar club include the Giants' Josh Kelly, Collingwood's Scott Pendlebury, Geelong's Patrick Dangerfield, Dog Marcus Bontempelli, Eagle Andrew Gaff, and Carlton's Patrick Cripps.
Monday, 17 February 2020
GWS coach Leon Cameron says he isn't worried about Jeremy Cameron being lured away from the Giants via free agency.
"Jeremy doesn't need convincing our club is the place for him to stay at, it's his right as a free agent to explore," Cameron said.
"This will be his ninth year, plus he came as a 17-year-old so he's going into his 10th year at this footy club.
"We love what he does, the players love his impact and he really wanted to be in the leadership group this year."
Thursday, 16 January 2020
Jeremy Cameron falls out of contract at the end of 2020 but says negotiations with the Giants are tracking well.
"There's definitely no timeline (on getting a contract signed)," Cameron said.
"Things are ticking along nicely, I'm speaking to the right people and it's all looking positive. I'm definitely pretty happy with the way things are going."
Wednesday, 15 January 2020
Stephen Coniglio will captain GWS in 2020 as part of a six-man leadership group.
The Giants won't have any vice-captains under Coniglio, instead entrusting Josh Kelly and Matt de Boer to support the star midfielder, along with newcomers Jeremy Cameron, Toby Greene and Lachie Whitfield.
Phil Davis and Callan Ward have stepped away from the Giants' leadership group after eight seasons as co-captains of the club.
"We're very fortunate at the Giants to have some outstanding leaders and I'm really confident in the mix of players that will be supporting Stephen as on-field leaders," GWS footy boss Jason McCartney said.
Monday, 7 October 2019
Departing Giant Adam Tomlinson says that Jeremy Cameron is unlikely to leave the club at the end of 2020.
"The man absolutely loves Sydney, he spends more time on his boat fishing than actually on dry land. I honestly can't see him leaving," new Melbourne recruit Tomlinson told Sportsday Radio.
"He's a massive part of the football club and, if you don't know him, he's the nicest person and there's no way I can see him playing footy anywhere else."
Friday, 4 October 2019
Tim Taranto caps a breakthrough 2019 season by winning the Kevin Sheedy Medal as the Giants' best and fairest.
In just his third season in the AFL, Taranto (222 votes) pipped Coleman medallist Jeremy Cameron (220), with fellow young midfielder Jacob Hopper (218) third.
"His commitment and dedication on the training track and desire to improve himself is almost second to none and he’s been an important part of our football club since he walked in the doors three years ago," GWS coach Leon Cameron said about Taranto.
"To see a player in just his third year take his game to such a level is exciting to watch as a coach and we’re looking forward to his continued development over the coming years."
Saturday, 21 September 2019
Hours before the Giants' preliminary final against Collingwood, Jeremy Cameron made someone's day off the field after having a kick with his teammates.
Cameron found a lost wallet and returned it, with an extra $50 in there for the wallet's owner to purchase a Giants scarf and beanie ahead of the preliminary final clash against Collingwood.
The wallet's owner put a photo of the letter out on Facebook, before a friend of his tweeted it out.
Wednesday, 17 July 2019
Jeremy Cameron says he agrees with media pundits who criticize his lack of defensive pressure.
"I don't think the (criticism) is unfair at all. I've been disappointed with that area of my game and it's an area I want to improve in," he said.
"Having the smalls in our forward line helps the talls (with defensive pressure) but at the same time we've got to share the load."
Saturday, 6 April 2019
GWS coach Leon Cameron believes Jeremy Cameron deserves more respect from media after the key forward kicked seven goals from 30 possessions to steer the Giants to a 49-point win over Richmond.
"I think he gets harshly dealt with sometimes (by the media)," Leon said about Jeremy.
"Because of the standards he set as an 18 or 19-year-old when he kicked 60-odd goals, we think he's going to kick 60 and 70 and 80 and 100 (goals each year after that), and it just doesn't happen.
"The stakes lift when you become a good player and there's more pressure on you and I think he's handled it really well."
Tuesday, 26 March 2019
Jeremy Cameron says spending the pre-season matched up on Sam Taylor has helped his footy.
"The whole pre-season he played on me and I'm sick of it to be honest," Cameron said with a laugh.
"He might be on the back foot in a contest, but the way he wills himself to halve it or even win it is just amazing.
"For someone in their second year to be able to do that is awesome for the team, and we're lucky to have him in our side."
Wednesday, 6 March 2019
According to official figures to be released by the AFL in its 2018 Annual Report, six AFL players earned more than $1 million in 2018.
Richmond's Dustin Martin, Fremantle's Nathan Fyfe, Sydney's Lance Franklin, Tom Lynch (Gold Coast in 2018), GWS' Jeremy Cameron and Western Bulldogs' Tom Boyd are believed to be the six.
West Coast's Nic Naitanui is likely to have earned more than $900,000, and Collingwood captain Scott Pendlebury, while not earning as much as previous seasons, would also have been around this range.
Friday, 25 January 2019
Seven months after a horrific collision with Jeremy Cameron that left a small bleed in his brain, Harris Andrews reveals he worked with Brisbane's psychologist before taking the field again.
"I've been very lucky to not have any ongoing symptoms," he said.
"I did a bit of work, technique and mentally, being able to put myself in that position again and realising it was a freak accident and probably wouldn't happen again.
"Nothing is going to change the way I play football. If I find myself in that position I'll absolutely be going for that footy again and having no second thoughts."
Monday, 10 September 2018
Toby Greene's marking technique might have sparked some furious debate over the weekend, but his Greater Western Sydney teammates have backed him to attack the ball in his own way.
"He's protecting his space and I'm sure you could pull out tapes of (other) players doing very similar things over the years," teammate Jeremy Cameron said.
"I think it's part of Toby's game that is quite unique and guys have different traits that they use in games."
Thursday, 30 August 2018
Jeremy Cameron admits his lengthy suspension for striking Brisbane's Harris Andrews earlier this season lingers in his head whenever he steps onto the field.
"My role in the side is to create a contest and go for my marks, and it's a fine line, especially because you have bodies coming back at you from all sorts of different angles," he said.
"That's the hardest part because the guys in our game are so courageous, and it can be quite dangerous at times.
"I'm still going to attack the ball the way I've learnt but I need to think my way through it a lot more and be wary of what I can and can't do."
Tuesday, 31 July 2018
Jeremy Cameron has opened up about the fallout from his five-game ban for striking Brisbane's Harris Andrews, and the critics who wrote off his team's season in the aftermath.
"There was a lot spoken about the incident and the first four or five days were a bit full on, but that whole time my main concern was Harris," Cameron said.
"I hate seeing a player going like that in any sport, let alone be a part of it.
"It was great to see him back out there doing what he does best on the weekend.
"It was a week like I hadn't had before, and it was stressful at times, but I've got the right people around me (for support)."
Wednesday, 27 June 2018
GWS co-captain Phil Davis has leapt to Jeremy Cameron's defence, blasting critics of the controversial incident that saw his teammate suspended for five weeks.
Cameron's heavy contact with his elbow on defender Harris Andrews during Saturday's win over Brisbane left the Lion with concussion and brain bleeding.
"I think people that don't understand that, in particular, are certain journalists who sit behind the microphone, their pieces of paper and haven't lived it and experienced it," Davis said.
"Your natural instinct, which is human survival, takes over and you have to protect yourself.
"Unfortunately in this situation Jeremy's mechanism to protect himself lent harm to Harris and I hope Harris is going well and we send our support there."
Tuesday, 26 June 2018
Lions ruckman Stefan Martin is critical of Jeremy Cameron's high knock which caused teammate Harris Andrews to be hospitalized with internal bleeding of the brain.
"It obviously looked really graphic," Martin said.
"It was pretty hard to see Harris on the ground making noises and right out of it. We've seen enough times that it can end careers, it would have to go through your mind.
"Having said that, there's no reason so far from what the neurosurgeon has said to make us think that's on the cards."
Jeremy Cameron will miss the next five weeks after the Greater Western Sydney star copped a hefty suspension from the AFL Tribunal for his crude strike on Brisbane youngster Harris Andrews.
Cameron pleaded not guilty to striking Andrews intentionally, arguing that his hit on the defender should be graded as the lesser charge of careless.
However, after 33 minutes of deliberating, the Tribunal upheld the view that his strike was intentional and ruled the Giants forward ineligible from playing until round 20.
"I'd just like to say I didn't mean to hurt Harris," Cameron said afterwards.
"Unfortunately, I did. I'm very sorry for that and I hope he gets back to playing football very soon."
Monday, 25 June 2018
Jeremy Cameron is sent straight to the tribunal after his high hit on Harris Andrews graded as intentional, with severe impact and high contact.
Sunday, 24 June 2018
Harris Andrews is admitted to hospital after his condition worsened following a sickening incident with GWS forward Jeremy Cameron at the Gabba.

"He will have a number of scans over the next few days."
Saturday, 23 June 2018
Jeremy Cameron is set to come under scrutiny from the Match Review Officer after he was reported for striking Harris Andrews in an incident that left the young Lion concussed.
Cameron raised his elbow in a marking contest, making contact with Andrews' jaw while the Lions vice-captain was trying to spoil.
Andrews crashed to the ground with blood streaming from his mouth and barely moved before being stretchered off.
The 21-year-old had his jaw stitched shortly after the incident and watched the remainder of the Giants' 27-point win from the bench.
Saturday, 9 June 2018
GWS coach Leon Cameron praises the courage of Jeremy Cameron after the key forward booted six goals from 23 disposals while playing with a toe injury.
"He's as tough as any player I've seen," Cameron said.
"Even during those weeks when we were struggling he kept showing up and that’s a sign of a player that wants to do everything for the footy club, he's a beauty.
"Sometimes you cringe with the way he goes at the footy and tonight was no different, and it was great he got his reward."
Tuesday, 20 February 2018
Jeremy Cameron is eyeing a big 2018 season on the back of a modified training load.
"Last year, I had a really good pre-season as well but I probably didn't manage the body the best I could and it kind of let me down later in the year," Cameron said.
"I'm a guy that wants to train every single session. I've done that this year.
"But at times the coaches have pulled me aside and said, 'I think you need just to have a rest' and I've been happy to take it."
Monday, 11 September 2017
Jeremy Cameron is ruled out for the rest of the Giants' finals campaign with a hamstring injury.
Cameron tweaked his left hamstring in his club's 36-point qualifying final loss to Adelaide, and scans have revealed the Giants' five-time leading goalkicker has tendon damage.
Sunday, 15 January 2017
Jeremy Cameron is hopeful an intense focus on the mental side of his game will propel him into the elite category of the league's best forwards.
"I was happy with my form at times last year but I thought I was a bit inconsistent as well, so I have to make sure I cut out those very poor games and have more good ones," Cameron said.
"Some days it feels like the ball is getting kicked over your head, but then at times I don't think I'm as switched on or into the game as I need to be.
"I just need to be in the moment a lot more, you're never really out of the play these days and you can always be doing something to help the players around you and help the team."
Tuesday, 10 January 2017
Jonathon Patton says the chemistry between Jeremy Cameron, Rory Lobb and himself in the Giants' forward line will improve further in 2017.
"Myself, Jeremy and Rory were working pretty well together at the end of the year and got some good momentum between us," Patton said.
"We're working really well now in training – because us three didn't really work together too much before 2016 – so to have that full year together is going to help us heaps this year."
Thursday, 14 April 2016
Jeremy Cameron has conceded he's had to tweak the way he plays the game after his disappointing four-match suspension resulting from this year's NAB Challenge.
"I am that (sort of) player where I do see it (the ball) and just go as hard as I can basically, and I've always done that in most things I do," Cameron said.
"It's just about seeing the game a bit better and seeing those situations and weighing them up a lot quicker.
"You see the guys that make really quick, sharp decisions and I think that’s where I have to develop my game a little bit more, just bit a bit quicker up here (in the mind)."
Tuesday, 15 March 2016
Jeremy Cameron is suspended for four matches for his high bump that left Brisbane Lions draftee Rhys Mathieson with a broken cheekbone.
Cameron's case was referred directly to the Tribunal on Monday after the Match Review Panel graded it careless with severe impact to the head.
The 21-year-old pleaded guilty to the charge as classified by the MRP and will be sidelined for matches against Melbourne, Geelong, the Sydney Swans and Port Adelaide.
"I accept the sanction they have handed down to me and I just hope Rhys Mathieson is OK," Cameron said.
"I just want to move on with my season now. We just wanted to go in there and plead my case."
Monday, 14 March 2016
Rhys Mathieson will see a surgeon on Monday after scans revealed he had a fractured cheekbone following a bump from Jeremy Cameron.
Cameron was reported for the incident in Sunday's NAB Challenge win against the Lions and now faces a nervous wait to see if he will be available for round one.
As Mathieson disposed of the ball, Cameron came from the teenager's right hand side and left his feet to deliver the bump.
The Lions are fully expecting Mathieson will require surgery but are still unsure how complex it could be.
Saturday, 29 August 2015
Greater Western Sydney coach Leon Cameron believes star forward Jeremy Cameron's year has eclipsed his 2013 season when he was named in the All Australian side.
"The challenge for us is to get Jeremy to play in different positions at times, so he doesn't have to have that combative 120 minutes of footy every week," Cameron said.
"He loves it and he's hard at it, but we want him to play at this footy club for 15 years.
"We don't want him to get to 27 (years of age) and he can't go anymore."
Wednesday, 19 August 2015
Jeremy Cameron says he had no problem with a Justin Westhoff tackle that left him stunned in Saturday's 21-point loss at Adelaide Oval.
The Power swingman was charged with rough conduct after the incident in the final term in which he drove Cameron into the turf, and was subsequently handed a $1000 fine by the Match Review Panel.
Cameron revealed that Westhoff had sought him out on the field after the match to check that he was ok, but the Giants' star says he had no lingering effects from the tackle.
The 2013 All Australian says he didn't think the tackle warranted a suspension, and that the AFL's rules surrounding dangerous tackles were sometimes confusing for the players.
"It's one of those things that's very hard to get a gauge on and sometimes things happen in games that look a bit ugly and a bit bad, but you certainly don't mean to hurt anyone," Cameron said.
"Going into games you don't think about the way you're going to tackle, you just want to be hard at the ball and physical, and I think everyone in the AFL wants to be like that.
"In the heat of the moment you don't really think about that sort of thing, you just want to win the ball. It's a tough one in general, I think."
Wednesday, 6 May 2015
Jeremy Cameron says he won't alter his aggressive and sometimes cavalier playing style, saying it's part of the reason he's such a dangerous forward.
Cameron required stitches to a cut on his nose after a sickening collision in the Giants' 87-point loss to West Coast last Saturday night.
Cameron managed just six possessions and a goal against the Eagles and made numerous trips to the GWS bench to try and stem the bleeding from his nose.
"That's the way I play my football, and sometimes it's a good way to get into the match," Cameron said.
"The contest is something I really like and enjoy in football, so I'll just keep doing those things."
Thursday, 5 March 2015
Jeremy Cameron re-signs with Greater Western Sydney on a multi-million dollar deal that will see him remain with the Giants until the end of 2020.
"We want success, we want to see the wheel turn and that's why I signed on," Cameron said.
"I'm really happy up here. It was quite an easy decision in the end."
Monday, 26 January 2015
Jeremy Cameron has revealed he thought his career may have been over after a serious knock to his ear early last season.
"A specialist put me in a booth and tested me and said you probably shouldn't play the game again," Cameron said.
"He said, 'I've seen people with a better ear than yours is right now and they can't balance at all for the rest of their lives'.
"It was a massive shock. It was pretty hard to sit there and absorb that. It could have been over, as simple as that."
Cameron sustained the heavy blow in the first quarter of the match against the Suns at Metricon Stadium, but after being assessed by doctors was cleared to play on.
The spearhead went on to kick four goals in a gutsy performance.
"I went off and had it assessed. My eardrum was blown completely out. I had no hearing in one side and ringing in the other. I had no hearing basically," Cameron said.
"It didn't affect my balance at all. It could have been the worst of the lot but it wasn't.
"The damage was to the inner ear where the small bones are. The fluid in there should have leaked but somehow it didn't and that's why I was OK and played the next week."
Cameron had surgery the Tuesday after the game against Gold Coast and had an artificial eardrum inserted into his ear, allowing him to play just four days later.
Tuesday, 22 July 2014
Jeremy Cameron requires surgery on his left ankle and has been ruled out for the remainder of the 2014 season.
Cameron has had trouble with both ankles in 2014, injuring his right ankle earlier in the season before hurting his left one in GWS' victory over the Brisbane Lions in round 13.
Despite also sustaining a perforated eardrum earlier in the year, Cameron has still managed to feature in 14 of a possible 17 games for the Giants, kicking a team-high 29 goals.
But he has been well below the level that led to 62 goals and an All Australian jumper in 2013, and the decision has been made to get him ready for the start of the pre-season in November.
"Unfortunately Jeremy has had an injury interrupted season, firstly with his right ankle, a perforated eardrum and then his left ankle which he injured against Brisbane," GWS football manager Graeme Allan said.
"We have now received medical advice that he needs to undergo surgery on his left ankle. He will then undergo rehab and be ready to start pre-season training and look forward to 2015."
Saturday, 5 July 2014
GWS coach Leon Cameron admits that Jeremy Cameron is going through a form slump.
"I'm confident we just need to keep working on the basics with Jeremy," Cameron said.
"We understand he's had an injury-interrupted year, but that's not an excuse.
"He'd like to get back to where he was last year and the year before and we're confident we can do that with him.
"He's a terrific kid, a terrific player for our footy club, and we'll work with him closely to keep chipping away."
Sunday, 29 June 2014
GWS is hopeful star spearhead Jeremy Cameron can finish off the season with a clean bill of health as he tries to recapture last year's All Australian form.
One season after kicking an extraordinary 62 goals to earn All Australian selection as a 20-year-old, Cameron has stumbled through a far more difficult third season at the top level.
"Jeremy has had an injury-interrupted season. He gets going for a couple of weeks and misses and then gets going and then he misses again," GWS coach Leon Cameron said.
"That's probably happened the last five weeks, but the first six or seven weeks of the season he couldn't train much.
"He knows where he needs to get better at and we just hope the next eight weeks he can have a really good run of training and playing every week."
Thursday, 19 June 2014
Jeremy Cameron's horrid run with injury in 2014 continues after the forward sustained an ankle injury in last week's win over the Brisbane Lions.
"It's a different ankle (to the one he hurt earlier in the year), but we saw him struggle for three or four weeks leading up to the bye with an ankle," GWS coach Leon Cameron said.
"So we're really mindful of making sure we get this right so it doesn't turn into a four- or five-week injury.
"We have to remember he's only in his third year, so I don't want to wreck him. I'd love him to play this week, but if he's not right, he won't play."
Monday, 2 June 2014
Jeremy Cameron is taken to hospital after Greater Western Sydney's seven-point loss to Hawthorn, with fears the All-Australian forward has broken his arm.
The Giants' spearhead, who has battled an ankle injury and a perforated eardrum in recent weeks, injured his arm when he was reported for rough conduct on Hawk Jarryd Roughead.
In the second term Cameron bumped Roughead, who was sliding into a contest. The GWS forward appeared to collect him with his left forearm before connecting with his hip, and was immediately reported.
Cameron received treatment for the injury on the interchange bench but returned with it strapped, and tried hard in the Giants' close defeat. He finished with a goal from seven disposals.
"It's a courageous effort from Jeremy to continue on playing. We don't know, he's off to hospital at the moment to find out whether he's got a broken arm," GWS coach Leon Cameron said post-game.
"He just continued to fight his way through it when it happened and I can't question his bravery. He's just a ball player, he has a crack, he puts himself in some really, really tough positions because he just wants to get the footy."
Jeremy Cameron has been cleared of a broken arm but may still be sidelined this week after being charged with rough conduct.
The 21-year-old was taken to hospital on Sunday night after the Giants' narrow loss to Hawthorn at the MCG following a collision with Jarryd Roughead.
He injured his left arm in the second-quarter incident and was cited by the Match Review Panel for engaging in rough conduct against the two-time Hawthorn premiership forward.
Tuesday, 27 May 2014
GWS coach Leon Cameron says Jeremy Cameron's output this season has been hampered by an ankle injury.
"He was really knocked around by that perforated eardrum that he had. He's a ball player, Jeremy, he really does crack in very hard," Cameron told Fox Footy.
"But secondly his ankle has been playing up for about three or four weeks and with that he just hasn't had the ability to train."
Jeremy Cameron denies media reports that he is considering a move back to Victoria at the end of his contract with GWS.
"I'm loving my time up here at the Giants," Cameron said.
"I really enjoy the boys, the coaching staff and everyone that's involved with the club.
"It's something that we're growing and I've seen grow over the last three years and I'm really enjoying it."
Saturday, 3 May 2014
Jeremy Cameron's recovery from a perforated eardrum means he can't fly for four weeks.
Cameron copped a heavy knock to his ear in the first quarter of last week's loss to Gold Coast and managed to play on, but still required surgery.
Monday, 3 February 2014
Inspired by local boy and 2013 All Australian forward Jeremy Cameron, the tiny town of Dartmoor has renamed its football team from the Swans to the Giants.
The Greater Western Sydney goalkicker hails from the Western Victorian town, which has a population of just 263 people.
"Sport is such a big part of every country town and I think it's fantastic that my home town of Dartmoor has now become part of the Giants," Cameron said.
"Dartmoor was a great place to grow up and I've received a lot of support from the town since moving to Western Sydney.
Monday, 13 January 2014
Tom Boyd says having a tall trio of Jonathan Patton, Jeremy Cameron and himself in the Giants' forward line presents an interesting dilemma for the club.
"It comes down to a lot of things – in terms of form and timing. Obviously being a bigger forward line, can we put on the defensive pressure that's required?" Boyd asked.
"It's an interesting dilemma to have, but it's really not up to me. I'll leave that up to the coaches."
Sunday, 8 September 2013
Jeremy Cameron takes out the 2013 Kevin Sheedy Medal as Greater Western Sydney's best and fairest player.
The 20-year-old, who has just 37 career games under his belt, earned 64 votes to finish ahead of last year's inaugural winner Callan Ward (59 votes), Tom Scully (55) and Dylan Shiel (41).
Cameron, who was also named in the 40-man All Australian squad, kicked 62 goals from his 21 games to finish third in the Coleman Medal.
"Jeremy Cameron had to play a lone hand up forward for a lot of the season," GWS coach Kevin Sheedy said.
"The way he provided an avenue to goal from limited inside 50s was outstanding.
"You have to remember that Jeremy didn't play a game of football until he was 15 years old.
"He's worked very hard since coming to the Giants and he deserves this award."
Monday, 19 August 2013
Despite being well in the race for the Coleman Medal himself, Eagle Josh Kennedy says he would love to see young Giant Jeremy Cameron win it.
"He's a superstar. He's 20 years old. He's in a team that's developing. He's a player that's getting the best backman every week," Kennedy said.
"His year has been exceptional and he's been great to watch."
Friday, 16 August 2013
GWS midfielder Adam Treloar says it will be a team goal to help Jeremy Cameron win the Coleman Medal.
"Every time I get the ball I'm going to be looking to give it to him, so he can kick whatever he needs," Treloar said.
"He's in the Coleman Medal race, and it's about the little goals we can strive for.
"I think a lot of the midfielders will be looking for him, so he can kick a bag and hopefully win the Coleman."
Tuesday, 13 August 2013
Jack Riewoldt admits GWS young gun Jeremy Cameron is his favourite player and would love to see him win the Colman Medal.
"I'd like to see Jeremy Cameron win the Coleman this year. He's probably my favourite player at the moment in the competition,'' Riewoldt said.
"The first time I won it in 2010, obviously, it was a great honour. And I think it would do wonders for his career if he could possibly pinch it this year and All-Australian (selection) would set himself up because he's going to be a great player in the future.''
Monday, 12 August 2013
Like many AFL experts, GWS coach Kevin Sheedy believes Jeremy Cameron is destined for stardom.
"Everyone know this kid is going to be a freakish sort of player," Sheedy said about Cameron.
"At the moment he's going to kick between 60 and 70 goals in probably the most inexperienced and youngest team ever in the history of the AFL.
"He'll be an absolute superstar in footy, I am pretty sure of that. He's got a very fierce determination. You haven't seen the killer instinct in him yet. There's plenty of it."
Saturday, 10 August 2013
Fremantle coach Ross Lyon reckons GWS forward Jeremy Cameron is an absolute freak, and is destined for special things.
''The numbers tell you he's going to be a special player,'' Lyon said ahead of Fremantle's clash with GWS at Patersons Stadium.
''He's an enormous athlete. If you go back and match him up against the best power forwards of their generation, they delivered in stronger teams.
''He's a freak. Plain and simple, he's a freak."
Sunday, 7 July 2013
Jason Johannisen has been ruled out for the rest of the season after it was confirmed he would require surgery on a dislocated right AC joint.
Johannisen suffered concussion and was substituted out of the game after being collected by Greater Western Sydney forward Jeremy Cameron in a heavy collision during the third quarter of their clash at Manuka Oval.
Wednesday, 12 June 2013
GWS coach Kevin Sheedy says Jeremy Cameron is just as good as AFL centre half forward of the century Royce Hart at the same age.
"I think he's up there with Royce in the early stages of his career, so I've got no doubt about making that comment,'' Sheedy said.
"He's very quick. He's a top mark on the lead. He's ferocious at the ball. He's very strong, very willing, very determined to be successful and they are all good signs of a young player coming through.''
Thursday, 9 May 2013
As the Crows prepare to take on GWS, Adelaide coach Brenton Sanderson says Jeremy Cameron and Daniel Talia are setting out on a great rivalry.
"Cameron v Talia would be a really juicy matchup for the fans," Sanderson said.
"Cameron's a star, he already is, when this side gets up and running he's going to be almost unstoppable. We obviously rate our boy too, 'Tails' is an absolute ripper."
Sunday, 24 March 2013
GWS captain Callan Ward says Jeremy Cameron is one of the bravest players he has seen.
"[He's] probably one of the bravest I have ever played with. He doesn't have any real fear at all," Ward said.

Jeremy Cameron, Jonathon Patton and Dylan Shiel will undergo surgery with three rounds remaining for the year in preparation for 2013.
"We're being proactive with these young bodies," said John Quinn, GWS' head of sports science.
"With a player like Jeremy it was evident early on that he would need surgery at some point and now this will relieve him of his pain and give him the best chance for a full pre-season heading in to 2013.
"Patton obviously sustained the shoulder injury two weeks ago and the advice we received from the surgeons was to have the procedure done immediately. This will enable him to be ready for his first full pre-season, as last year he was hampered by a knee injury and subsequent surgery.
"We're very happy with the results of Dylan's surgery and whilst it is a six-month recovery for him, we have excellent fitness and medical staff to get him to his full potential by the NAB Cup."

"He will one day take hold of this game and become one of the best forwards in the AFL," Richardson said.

"He's taking five marks a game in his first season of AFL footy and that's a big achievement considering GWS don't have a huge amount of inside 50s.
"He's got a good turn of speed and can get away from his opponents on the lead."

"And with Jeremy Cameron, he's been at the club for a significant period of time already. He came a year earlier than the rest of the players and has settled in very well and we're confident that we can progress discussions with Jeremy."
