  1. Viney's Foot

    It's pretty uncommon for that sort of thing to happen but it would've been a case of viney's determination vs risk. In the end they would probably admit that he needed a bit more time off it but it's more one of those things that can either work or not depending on the player's individual body. Viney has shown to return from injury well and 'heal' quickly, so I think that would have been part of the reasoning.
  2. Viney's Foot

    I'm a physiotherapist and essentially (from what it sounds like to me) is that when Jack came back to play, there was no risk of reinjury to his plantar fascia, however because it had only been a short time since he returned, there was still a substantial amount of pain in his foot. This is not a problem in itself however the pain caused jack to adopt a 'cautious' gait pattern i.e. put his weight through different parts of his foot he would not normally load in order to minimise the pain. This unusual loading to his foot resulted in a stress reaction to his 2nd and 3rd metatarsals (the big long bones in the middle of your foot), which is essentially when the bone cannot keep up with the load it is getting and starts to gradually deteriorate. I understand this never reached stress fracture stage (thank god), but it is why the MFC staff took a fully cautious approach and decided to just get him off it completely. With rest and proper rehab, it will be fine and I dare say he would be back into training within no time. Sorry for the ramble but hope this was interesting for people who were wondering! GO DEES

  5. Well done to FD on our 2017 trade week

    I think you've got to look at the fact that we've essentially brought Lever for the rest of his career. Players who are traded will very rarely ask for a trade again so essentially we have Lever until he retires. He's 21 now and could play over 10 years easily. Carlton traded even more for Gibbs who they'll have for 4 years max. I'll take our side of the trade every day of the week.

  7. Farewell Jack Watts

    Okay, I'm personally in the gutted his gone part but can see some of the reasons they wanted him gone, but also that I think he's more than pick 31 worth, but also that the MFC staff obviously have their reasons. To summarise, I think I'm just sad he's gone. Jack was synonymous with the MFC and no one can deny he was a good bloke. I wish him the best. Can the posters who want to sit there and shove their 'hate Jack Watts' opinions down people's throats just [censored] off for a bit and let those of us who are sad just mourn for a bit. That would be appreciated.
