Hope this is not true but a reminder that you never know whats around the corner.

All the best laid plans of mice and men can come undone very quickly with injury and bad luck. 

Even with strong depth you can never replace the genuine star, particularly a dynamo like Mitchell.

Take care you Demons, may the football gods smile sweetly at you in 2019.

A quick peruse of the Hawks bigfooty page tells you that they think they have no depth. 

Their best player down and they’re calling it ‘season over’ already.

Poor bloke has broken his leg. Report says he will miss the entire season.

That hurts the Hawks a LOT.

Hope he comes back well. Great player.

No one wants to see this happen to any player. We had it with Lever. All of a sudden beating the Hawks has become just a bit easier.

This brings O'Meara & $ullky to the fore in their 2019 season.

We can NEVER underestimate the Hawks as a club.  They will fire up for us.

This is what I'm hinting/alluding to.   Both those stars are hindered.   As are Burgoyne by age, and Roughy by age, as well.

And just like that, Hawthorn miss the 8 in 2019.

As much as I dislike Hawthorn, it's still horrible seeing this happen to a player. Hawks are going to struggle mightily without him.

Seems like an innocuous training drill. 

To pull or strain a muscle, even injure your knee can always happen, but breaking a leg is strange. Usually caused by a collision or forceful impact. Breaking a bone is not easy to do.

Seems surprising given the circumstances.

I wonder if it will affect his leg speed, not that he was tat fast to start with.  I remember Nathan Brown was never the same after his break.  Though I'm not sure how the two compare in severity?

It will severely dent their chances this year as they transition from their older players to the next group.  Scully will be interesting as I think he was taken on as a longer project and not expected to play a lot this year.

Does a year seem a long time for a broken leg? I thought they generally came on quicker than that.

They will miss him. Really bad loss. Hope something like that doesn't happen to us.

I wish Tom a full recovery, but i shall enjoy watching Whorethorn a man down all year. 

That jumper has inflicted so much arrogant pain on me over many years....

Leverage can be a powerful force. The wrong angle and even the slightest of acute pressure can end in many ways.

    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 2 ruckmen on the field is an essential for this season.  It was a lesson that should have be

    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
