Jordan Lewis Out with Broken Hand

Recommended Posts

Wow. Some of the comments on here are a disgrace. 

Can you just for one minute imagine plaing AFL football with a broken hand on a wet day when legs and arms and wet footy’s are being kicked around. 

Good on ya Jordan. Get yourself better as soon as you can

A broken hand ?

I think this is a disaster for coming games against Tigers and Dons. First three guys I would pick each week in our brittle team are Jones Lewis and Vince and the rest are just deck chairs to be shuffled as we try not to sink...again

Also with a chance he and Tom coming back vs Essendon, they will be two very handy inclusions on a 5 day break.

How about a little empathy for one of our Guy's playing under difficult circumstances, never showed that he was hurt. I did comment to my daughter during the game that he looked like he had a jab in the ankle as he looked like he was kicking with a "dead" foot.

take a few weeks off Jordan and get it right.

 

Go Dee's

We never want any player to be injured playing for the Dees. 

It is in poor taste to take a cheap shot at Jordie today.

Yep certainly some vitriol being spewed in here. He had a poor game, but a broken hand explains why. He's a tough guy Jordy! Good on him for seeing the game out, must've been hard in those conditions and being part of such a disaster to keep pushing himself. He can heal up for a few weeks now and hopefully return fresh and primed to have an impact.

Go back and take a look at the posters who took some sort of delight in his injury. It will tell you all you need to know. Anyone who is happy to see one of our players injured isn't a true supporter of this club.

I thought of that but didn't want to over-egg the pudding. But you are welcome to make your own joke about people throwing remotes at TVs. (Sorry, I gave away the punchline.)

Played very well v North

Not according to J Brown +/- Roosy.

 

Jordan Lewis is one of the bravest players that has played the game.  I wouldn't have played at all after a 1/10th of the hit he received from Gia? v the dogs a few years ago.  He can be proud of his career, and his 4 flags.

But Melbourne's decision to get him, though filling the simpleton's heart with glee, said more about how inward-looking and safe we still were.  Bevo's dogs didn't need an ageing leader at the 11th hour; nor did the TiGeRs.

I am celebrating Lewis out, because for the first time since late 2016, I can trust most of the 22 in terms of leg speed and keeping their feet.  And yes, I am sure we won't miss his leadership...whatever that was supposed to ever mean and solve.

Honestly show respect for a 4 time premiership player who still had hunger to finish 3rd b&f whilst Watts had every opportunity to improve but come back underdone in preseason & after his injury  & Lewis kept on playing injured!

Did anyone see the footage of him chasing luke breust for 40m and getting overtaken by wagner? Broken hand or not he's too slow.

 

I've also broken a hand before and played out a game. It's not a painful injury.

How is he out of form? He Was the highest possession winner against North and one of the main reasons we beat Brisbane. 

Are you basing his drop in form from Sunday when he played with a broken hand? 

When he's keeping a player like Jayden Hunt out of the team I have a major problem with it. Our main problem is leg speed other teams notably Hawthorn use it to plot our downfall, he is a plodder keeping out a Jet for what purpose to play as a loose defender?

Didn't we bring in a 800k a year defender from Adelaide to play that role? what does he bring to the team D11? onfield leadership? onfield coach? tell me D11 I would love to know. 

He's so unaccountable as a defender let's players run past him at will, teams put pacey players on him to expose him, North are mediocre let's be real regardless of streak.

oh I forgot he got the most possessions against Brisbane did he? gee wiz wow that's amazing, do you know they lost by 93 pts on the weekend D11, makes it look like a masterpiece of a game.

How bout young Stretchy I'd rather him as well plenty of toe about him give him a go now. Lewis will keep. He'll still get his top up of super from us.

Jonathon Brown was not impressed with his game against Brisbane and tends to agree with my sentiments and he's a big wrap for the Dees.

Sorry D11 I'm not on my own here other sets of eyes watch these games and say the same thing, that's life.

Well if Jonathan Brown agrees with you, you must be right.  I said he got the most p’s against Nth, not Brisbane.  

Granted he doesn’t have much pace but he never has.  Go back and watch some of the replays of his delivery by foot.  I am a Hunt fan but he is a horrible kick.  

How am I suppose to know what he says on the field and how he leads but since you’re the football genius I guess you can tell from your arm chair. 

Lever didn’t come to us to play a half back role.

Jayden Hunt is keeping Jayden Hunt out of the side.  From the moment the first JLT game began until he was dropped he was in horrible, horrible form.  It had nothing to do with Jordan Lewis.

He has never been quick, what’s your point? Speed is not the only thing needed to play footy. 

I guess you know exactly what type of break it was and his pain must have been exactly the same as yours.

Some of the stuff said on here has been disgraceful. Holding to the upcoming ANZAC day spirit, you wouldn't treat someone who's putting their body on the week in, week out for the club like that. I admit Jordie wasn't in great form but to be so disrespectful to someone who has shown so much commitment to the players and coaches to be named vice-captain is appalling. 

Gee the footy is important but we're the MFC people, we stand for the club that is so great in every way, we're not collingwood flogs. People who spend every week trying to get us glory and honour should be treated with the respect they deserve. Some of you need to take a good hard look at yourselves.

There are very divided opinions on JL. I'm sorry to say that I'm on the side that thinks he has played poorly this season.

I still don’t get it.  If he was injured, why wasn’t he benched, and a fit player used?  I do not question his endeavour, or even his bravery.  My issue is with the medical team and coaching staff having on the field if he was injured, or Lewis not letting on that he was injured.  I thought Goodwin wanted ‘fit’ players.  Could have shuffled the deck chairs, and maybe seen something different from what we saw.

    OVERPOWERED by George on the Outer

    If there was ever a prime example of a team of players not ready for the new football season it was Melbourne in the opening round of 2019.   Throughout the field there was just too much evidence of players who haven’t had sufficient pre-season or players who ordinarily wouldn’t have even graced the field at this early stage.   The Demons also got a lesson on selection with Port Adelaide showing that two ruckmen on the field is an essential for this season.  It was a lesson that should

    THE WELCOME GAME by Whispering Jack

    The Melbourne Football Club has moved forward in leaps and bounds since it last met Port Adelaide in a totally forgettable (for Demon fans) season opener on the MCG.  That game, played on Sunday, 31 March, 2013 before a crowd of 22,924, was supposed to be a close encounter between two of the competition’s lesser lights from the previous season when the Power had finished 14th and the Demons 16th (ahead only of AFL newbies Gold Coast and GWS). It turned into a slaughter with Port taking the

    THE WALKING WOUNDED by Paddy Gosch

    Forget the fact that Melbourne narrowly missed out on getting the four JLT points on offer for a second consecutive week and the blow to the ego of a supposed top four contender losing ... well almost at home ... to a team that has recently dwelt in the AFL cellar and won a mere five games in 2018. The things that emerged from the horror final JLT outing was that the Demons are a long way from being prepared to take on the rigours of a long tough season in which they have one of the hardest fixt

    PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons have named a star studded line up in it’s final practice match before the season proper. They take on the emerging Brisbane Lions out at Casey which is the second of three matches at the ground on Saturday. Many of the Dees best 22 have been recalled including Vice Captains Max Gawn and Neville Jetta whilst Captains Nathan Jones and Jack Viney will play restricted minutes in the VFL curtain raiser. Former Gold Coast co-captain Steven May will play his first official game for Melb

    HIT OUT by Paddy Gosch

    As far as preseason hit outs go, the Demons’ first JLT Community Series fixture against the Tigers in the blistering heat at Shepparton, was instructive of a number of things but not really conclusive as to how each team will fare in the regular season against the competition's big guns (which includes against each other). That’s the way these practice match hit outs go. Neither of the teams was at full strength, particularly Melbourne but if you were looking for the reason for the 12 point

    HOT OUT OF THE CITY by Paddy Gosch

    The Dees travel out of the city for game one of two JLT Community Series practice matches before the season proper. Our first match takes us to the floodplains of the Goldburn River in Northern Victoria to the city of Shepparton. We take on the Tigers for the first of at least 3 encounters with the 2017 Premiers this year. The game will be played in scorching temperatures so expect plenty of rotations, ice vests, fans running overtime and extra water carriers. The Demons are coming off a wi

    GAME, SET & SCRATCH by Paddy Gosch

    I always believe in starting off any report by accentuating the positive and in that regard, as at the time of writing, the Demons have not reported any injuries so that’s my major positive from today’s practice game v the Magpies (albeit that we know the club is somewhat lax in reporting these things so my best wishes go out if any of today’s participants are in intensive care at the Alfred).  Another positive was that Razor Ray performed his umpiring duties admirably which is more than I

    SCRATCH by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons are set to take on the old enemy Collingwood in a good old fashioned Scratch Match on Friday Morning. It is unknown what form the match will take, how many quarters there will be, their length, the amount of rotations or even whether they'll keep score. One thing we do know for sure is that both coaching staffs will be keeping their cards close to their chests to ensure neither will glean too much from their competition. The Dees will likely be without some of their stars as Tom

    IMAGINE by Whispering Jack

    The Demons made their official return to the training track for 2019 on a sunny Saturday morning at Goschs Paddock with most of the interest initially centred on a small patch of ground in one of the pockets where the rehab group was going through the paces. Some good pieces of news on that score. The  rehab group is considerably smaller than it was prior to the Christmas break with Christian Petracca (knee), James Harmes (shoulder), Jayden Hunt (shoulder), Neville Jetta (shoulder), Oscar M
