Ablett may be sidelined for Round 1

Recommended Posts

Would we rather Ablett not play or Viney not play? Frankly i would rather Ablett plays and if Viney isn't 100% then he doesn't. marathon season, not a sprint.

New year, new comp.  Most teams (except Norf) will go into the season believing they are some chance to improve on last year.  Some will, some won't.  We have more talent, greater depth, seeming cohesion and cultural improvement and not so many injuries.  If we can build our experience playing and winning under pressure, I think we will be a good chance against all comers.  Geelong have Ducker, Danger and Gablett.  Not sure what else.

I always think by round 6 you have a pretty good idea on the year ahead.  Last year the Swans were the exception to this rule.  SO 6-0 for us and I will be a very happy camper!

given ablett's age and recent injury history i'd say he is 75% chance of missing round 1

viney maybe 50/50 but the next 3 weeks should give us a better idea

Life is much easier when we stuff up like we usually do.

The tension that goes with success is something we rarely have to deal with as MFC supporters.

Yes going into games last year actually expecting to win just upped my blood pressure. Also explains why I have only just got over Rnd 23.

I'd rather he play too. The more Corio Filth at the game the better.

I hope the MCG stocks up on Geelong Bitter and winny blues. They'll make a killing

Especially if he doesn’t take his medicine. 

Naughty boy!

My guess is that he will only stay fit for half of the games this season.

Our inaccurate kicking didn't help us either. We could have put the game beyond doubt at 3/4 time even with Maxy's injury.

The Geelong supporters that I sat around at that game (I sat in their members!) all knew we snatched defeat from the jaws of victory.  They were quite pleasant at the start of the game, but by half way through the 3rd quarter, they were turning on each other, and most wanted to kill me (I was actually very well behaved).  They knew that they were going to lose, and hated every minute of it.

All of a sudden, we kept kicking points, and they kicked some ridiculous goals (Menzel's banana from the boundary about 40m out), they got momentum, and the rest is history.

To top it off, their [censored] supporters came crawling back to me half way through the last when it was clear they were going to run over the top of us.

"The Age reporting Ablett has hamstring tightness upon hearing the news Jack will be right for Round 1."

 

It wasn't really a joke, was it?:)

I would not think it was a joke, FT. It is more like an epistle on the absolutely bad luck a team may be forced to endure prior to and during a game against Melbourne. Saddens the heart, doesn't it? Poor things; there goes anotheree for poor old Geelong. On the upside, one less tag for us and thus, one more Demons' speedster freed to run amok to assist in the eventual win. Hey, suddenly I am not so sad.

You know what, I'd rather he play - will get another 15,000 bums on seats and I'd rather beat their full strength side.  Better test for us and who doesn't want to see Viney, Oliver, Petracca v Danger, Selwood, Ablett?!  

I agree and it sounds good. However Ablett out and beat them, even better. Make them suffer.

"Hamstring" tightness. Maybe it's really tightness in another, smaller, muscle, a little higher up and a bit to the side of the hamstring.

In all seriousness ...the older players are far more susceptible to soft tissues and general soreness...exh a ..one J Lewis.  

Ablett wont play a full season from here on.  If hes a bit proppy now...wait til it ramps up ;)

I don't care if he plays or not. Worry about two things

1 Who you have got and npt who you haven't 

2 Go in with a plan to beat the 22 in front of you.

This is what makes good sides. When we get beyond choosing when to show up, we've arrived.

They are sweating on junior playing, Geelong have put everything in junior being the difference in them winning a flag, his hammy will trouble him all year, that's why he was resting at Gold coast ever few weeks,  many thought  he was putting it on because he wanted out, he did want out but his hammys  were giving him trouble, this confirms it.  I think his hammy are sore after every game, Geelong will be pushing him to play every week, hopefully this stresses his hammys and he pulls it good.
