James 'Pop' Kelly (born 29 December 1983) is an Australian rules footballer for the Geelong Football Club in the Australian Football League (AFL).
Since 2001, Kelly has played with the Geelong Football Club. Playing as a fourth-string midfielder in the powerful midfield, he has shown capability in gaining many possessions and running well, as well as showing courage, but consistency is sometimes an issue, with many possessions being costly turnovers, also known as clangers. He was a member of Geelong's 2006 NAB Cup Premiership team, as well as the drought-breaking 2007 AFL Premiership Team. He was also a member of Geelong's losing side in the 2008 Grand Final and their victorious sides in the 2009 and 2011 Grand Finals. He played his 200th game in the Cats' 12-point loss to Collingwood in round 8, 2012.
