From full forward to full back, Rod Jameson made his mark with the Adelaide Crows. It was as a midfielder that Jameson first made his name with SANFL club Glenelg, where he played 45 games before the arrival of Adelaide stopped him from joining North Melbourne. He came off the bench in Adelaide’s first game against Hawthorn but then settled into a key forward role and was the Club’s leading goalkicker in its first season.
His tally of 49 goals included a career-best bag of eight goals against North Melbourne in the last minor round, while in Round 12 he kicked a goal after the siren to defeat Fitzroy. Jameson struggled through his second season and by 1993 spent more time in defence. He played full back in the 1997 grand final, although a torn hamstring cut his day short. He then struggled with leg injuries, retiring aged just 29 in 1999. He was named in the AFC Team of the Decade 1991-2000
A loyal and active Club person he was instrumental in setting up the Past Players and Officials body becoming its inaugural president and in 2015 he became a Crows Board member, having been elected by the members.
