Ricky Petterd does his shoulder



Recommended Posts

According to the MMM call, it's out now and they can't get it back in, after coming into the game with it loose after last week.

Shocking for the kid after doing so well so far this year. The cost of being such a gutsy player.

According to the call they've JUST put it back in...

So what do the resident medicos (the ACTUAL medicos) here think?

Dr Peter Larkins says it will require an appointment with the specialist.

Guess we'll just have to wait and see now but knoowing our luck it will be a full one.

Watts to come in??????? Ha

Watching the tv 1 hr delayed telecast.... Petterd just left the ground. He initially hurt it against brisbane last week. Landed on an outstretched arm. Hyperflexion injury - more than likely an ac joint last week. Definitely an anterior dislocation as he walked off this week. Whether it needs surgery or not is dependent on what is actually damaged - joint capsule/ligaments/boney avulsions etcetera. They'll get it back in, might need some anaesthetic to do it if they struggle as reported. Then its a matter of settling any pain and swelling. Have an MRI over the few days to assess how much damage there is and decide on treatment options then - surgical or conservative rehab and get it strong. Conservative management if appropriate will get him back sooner. Probably up to 12 weeks if it needs surgery. I'm private physio if you're wondering about my quals. Been doing this for 15 years

Larkins reckons he'll need a reco. At risk of sparking off another insufferable 8 pages of rubbish, opportunity for Watts??

considering the forward line was nothing, I would hope so, and I think its time for the young man to get some AFL games under his belt. ;)

For it to pop out 3 times in 1 game its obviously very unstable. From experience, the pain when its out is terrible but when its back in, if you haven't done any bone damage you get full pain free movement back.

He can't go on with it coming out all the time. They can fix them with keyhole surgery these days, unlike the 10cm scar on my shoulder. Might see him back sooner than you all think. Its a shame all the same.

I know a little about these shoulder injuries and to me it looked like he popped it out last week and not hurt his AC joint like some have suggested.

He will require a reco now. Whether the club wants to try nurse him through like Adelaide did with Porplyzia or send him straight for surgey is the question. I suspect that is his season done, and even possibly his career with the MFC.

why would he want to leave? we're abojut to become a powerhouse again. even after today, i'm not absolutely shattered. i think its a reality check that will be good for them to refocus and not get ahead of themselves. was always going to happen at some stage. get them up and about for next friday night and put in a good contest.

but i think petterd and jamar should be rewarded with bigger contracts next year and i think we have some room to move in the cap. on the form this year so far they deserve it. get petted right and he'll be back better than ever contributing to melbourne's tilt at flag in the coming years.

He hurt his shoulder last week.

Yet he played this week?

Well done the the MFC coaches and medical staff. No doubt Ricky will now bolt for the Gold Coast, and I dont blame him.

If he's fit to play, which he was, then he plays. Take that into consideration.

Season possibly, but I doubt career. He seems to want to stay, and they won't ditch him.

Yeah he sort of does. I'm only basing this on rumour and nothing substancial. That he has supposedly told us not to talk contracts until the end of the season is a worry. But I guess we'll find out.

I hope he's using this season to decide whether to stay or leave. If he sees us winning, then he should stay.

It's not a worry. It just shows he has a manager with half a brain recognising his value will be greater at season's end.

Though that plan may backfire a little if a reco is needed.

if pettard is out we should bring in watts

Funny, I was going to bring this up too.

Do people think he's ready yet? Would we be better off bringing in a more experienced player, or perhaps one of the smaller guys who've been pushing for selection? Bail needs to come back into the team for a start. Would you take Watts over him?

I had a very brief chat with Jack before the game at Southport yesterday. He indicated he is very keen to get a call up. Alas, based on what I saw in the game yesterday, I just can't see the call coming just yet. I would think they would want him taking the game on and excelling at the VFL level before they give him another run at Melb.

But, then again, the Football Dept knows better than me. Should they decide he's ready, and give him a run, and he does well, I certainly won't complain!

do you know something we don't?

No, sorry I didn't mean it like that. I stated a few posts later that I was only basing that on the rumours, nothing substantial.

But I will be very surpirsed if he plays again this season. That is the 3rd time its popped out so far that we know of.

    HOT PIES FREEZE DEES by George on the Outer

    In the Annual Big Freeze game in support of Neale Daniher's fight against MND, it was Collingwood who froze the ambitions of the Demons, and it now challenges them to thaw out their prospects in the second half of the season. Even though Melbourne opened the scoring account, it was quickly countered by Collingwood, as the Demons appeared flat. And even though they held a minor lead at the first break, it was only through a couple of fortunate efforts, but nothing more.  All around

    FROZEN by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne supporters are an unusual lot. Their lived experiences over years of witnessing their team’s humiliation at the hands of the competition’s bullies have left them suspended in a Bizarro World beset by a cognitive distortion know as 'mental filtering'. This is a phenomenon that occurs when people focus exclusively and blindly on long held belief systems. They refuse to accept that conditions have changed so when the evidence is present before their very own eyes, their minds are frozen.

    CHANGES: 2021 MID SEASON by The Oracle 

    Since the end of the 2020 free agency, trade and draft period, AFL clubs have had two further bites of the cherry to top up their lists — the supplemental selection period (SSP) and the 2021 mid-season rookie draft (MSD). The main idea behind both was to enable the fulfillment of immediate needs as a result of injuries or unexpected retirements but this year, we have seen the added dimension of straight out recruitment for the future rather than for now. As a consequence, a number of ready

    LION TAMERS by George On The Outer

    In an enthralling game between two top four sides, it was the Demons who tamed the Lions, and propelled themselves into the position of premiership favourite even though the season is barely past the halfway mark. This is because Melbourne keeps on beating those teams around them who might provide a challenge. Not only that, it keeps winning with emphatic displays of resilience and toughness that have not been seen in a Demons side for many, many years. Challenged in the first half of

    DUELING BANJOS by Whispering Jack

    In the classic Australian poem, A B “Banjo” Paterson sought the answer by letter to a question concerning the whereabouts of a drover named “Clancy”. The response from Clancy’s shearing mate was written with a thumb-nail dipped in tar: “Clancy’s gone to Queensland droving, and we don’t know where he are.” Most of us would have felt a little bit that way earlier in the week wondering about the possible whereabouts of the Melbourne team for this week’s encounter against Brisbane. Were th

    DOGGED DEEFENCE by George on the Outer

    “No-one let the Dogs out” was the Demons response for the (former) top side.  The Melbourne defence, capably lead by Steven May and Jake Lever simply suffocated any hopes that the Western Bulldogs might have had about leading the competition at the mid-way point. Instead, it is the Demons who now sit at the top of the ladder, again a game clear, while their supporters are starting to believe that this side is the real deal.  Pity is that those same supporters couldn’t watch their team demol

    LOOK AWAY DEMON FANS by The Oracle

    Last week I predicted a comfortable Melbourne victory for its game against Adelaide. “Something in the order of 61 points”, I opined. Well, after the game, I checked the wording of my preview very carefully from all angles and I have now concluded that I have to issue an apology to Demon fans. I got it wrong. I’m not bitter and twisted about my error in failing to predict the coaching errors, defensive mistakes, lack of forward pressure and, of course, the complete failure of those officiat

    CALM BEFORE THE CALM by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons overcame a sluggish first half to run over the Sydney Swans in the second to record an emphatic 40 point victory, maintaining their undefeated record and retaining top spot on the VFL ladder. The game originally listed as part of the Round 4 fixture but delayed due to a Covid19 scare in Sydney and the scrappy way in which the teams approached the contest suggested that the players were still in delay mode. This applied in particular to most of the 12 AFL listed Casey player

    NOTHING TO CROW ABOUT by George On The Outer

    Melbourne’s nine game winning streak  came to an end in Adelaide with a one point loss to the Crows. Losing to a team that had only won three games for the season, having lost five in a row was certainly nothing to crow about.  All around the ground players collectively put in their poorest performance for the year.  The loss of Christian Salem before the match was critical, as his replacement Nev Jetta is a mere shadow the player he once was. The mind is still willing, but the body no

    CRYING OVER SPILT MILK by The Oracle

    It had to happen sooner or later. Melbourne has been riding high through the season to date and, with the exception of a small bunch of nuff nuffs who are never satisfied with anything, the club has attracted more positive vibes from the community in these nine weeks than it did in the past decade. So it came as no surprise to see some low grade stirring of the sort which only the media could come up with at a time like this. The on line site Zero Hanger came up with an article that opined,

    CATNIPPED by KC from Casey

    After winning big away from home across the first three rounds of the new look VFL competition, the Casey Demons were forced to dig deep against Geelong VFL at Casey Fields on Saturday. The traditional AFL based teams were evenly matched, fielding ten listed players apiece and this was reflected in the evenness of the game and the final margin which saw the home side leading by a solitary point on the final siren. Casey suffered an early blow when Jake Bowey came off with what ap

    BLUES IN THE RED by George On The Outer

    While the Demons’ undefeated run continues unabated now at 9-0 their emphatic 26 point victory pushed the Blues to their sixth loss for the season and deeper into the red for the year. While Melbourne opened proceedings with an early goal, the Blues responded with the next two to grab an early lead.  However, as has happened in so many games this year, the Demons fought back to lead by just over a goal come the first break. This narrow lead was part of a streak either side of quarter t
