Jack's comments from an article on the MFC site earlier today...

CO-CAPTAIN Jack Viney remains optimistic he will play some form of football before Melbourne’s season opener against the Geelong Cats at the MCG on Sunday, March 25.

“Personally, I’d love to get a game in. I feel like it would be good preparation to get a JLT game in, or a couple of JLT games in – just to find my feet a little bit. I won’t be ready for AFLX, but if I could fit in the last JLT game, that’d be amazing,” he said.

“I know sometimes when I’ve been a little bit underdone before the season, I’ve played the VFL game, the week before the season, which is when we have a break and there is no AFL football. If the schedule aligns, that could help.

“If I haven’t played any [official AFL] games before round one, I’m not too sure where I’ll be at exactly … but I’d love to get some [games] in before round one.”

Well Jack, let's hope the FD and medical staff are conservative with this and make the right call.

We know you would play no matter what and that can be part of the problem.

I would say 95% of the problem rjay.

so fency, you fancy yourself standing up to viney and saying 'sorry pal but you're not playing no matter what'

That's why the coaching and medical staff get paid the big bucks - to make the hard calls at the right times. Letting him play was a cop-out.

Who gave him the green light to return early from that foot injury and why haven't they been fired yet?

How many of you guys started having a tug after you watched that video at the thought of being as negative as possible?  

I read the responses before watching the video and seriously thought he had a major setback.  Instead, it's basically the same stuff as before with the caveat being he is a 'line ball' to play Round 1.

While I'll be surprised if he does play, he won't be too far away after that.  Just calm your farm, guys.

Back in training in a month.

Probably needs another month after that to play an AFL game.

Looks like round 2-4 to me. That's ok. Get him right for the full season.

I thought he was on crutches today judging by the above picture, so that's at least something.

A fit and firing Viney is obviously key to our chances of making finals.

Our record after Viney played that inspiring game vs West Coast (and before injury ruined his season) was 4-5, and 2 of those were very poor wins over Carlton and Brisbane, costing us critical percentage.

Will be very surprised if he lines up round 1, gives someone like Maynard a crack I guess

Very misleading screengrab- he was on crutches last year and they’ve reused the footage.  95% of that interview had him walking and standing in his footy boots.

And there we go.

Wiseblood gets to mention his pet topic of "negativity" again.

Remember the lube Wise.

I think it’s an old photo.  I’m the video he is walking around without crutches.

They make it so easy, my friend.  The same ones roll up every time.
