Discussion on recent allegations about the use of illicit drugs in football is forbidden
  • IMPORTANT: PLEASE READ BEFORE POSTING

    Posting unsubstantiated rumours on this website is strictly forbidden.

    Demonland has made the difficult decision to not permit this platform to be used to discuss & debate the off-field issues relating to the Melbourne Football Club including matters currently being litigated between the Club & former Board members, board elections, the issue of illicit drugs in footy, the culture at the club & the personal issues & allegations against some of our players & officials ...

    We do not take these issues & this decision lightly & of course we believe that these serious matters affecting the club we love & are so passionate about are worthy of discussion & debate & I wish we could provide a place where these matters can be discussed in a civil & respectful manner.

    However these discussions unfortunately invariably devolve into areas that may be defamatory, libelous, spread unsubstantiated rumours & can effect the mental health of those involved. Even discussion & debate of known facts or media reports can lead to finger pointing, blame & personal attacks.

    The repercussion is that these discussions can open this website, it’s owners & it’s users to legal action & may result in this website being forced to shutdown.

    Our moderating team are all volunteers & cannot moderate the forum 24/7 & as a consequence problematic content that contravenes our rules & standards may go unnoticed for some time before it can be removed.

    We reserve the right to delete posts that offend against our above policy & indeed, to ban posters who are repeat offenders or who breach our code of conduct.

    WE HAVE BUILT A FANTASTIC ONLINE COMMUNITY AT DEMONLAND OVER THE PAST 23 YEARS & WE WOULD LIKE TO CONTINUE TO BE ABLE TO DISCUSS THE CLUB WE LOVE & ARE SO PASSIONATE ABOUT.

    Thank you for your continued support & understanding. Go Dees.


MFC injury list - 2015

Recommended Posts

Pretty well our first-choice HB line.

Not sure how much any of these are preventable. Note that the hamstrings etc. are all across the younger players. Short of not playing or training, not sure what more could/should be done, it just takes time for bodies to build up to the load of AFL.

Does seem to be a league-wide problem though, there are more than a few teams with injury lists that are as long/longer than ours.

Grimes is a depth player now, just as Matt Jones is. Handy back up, but an inherently flawed footballer. Edited by AdamFarr

I think VandenBerg is the real deal.

His presence, pressure and poise at AFL level after an interrupted pre-season has been amazing. Give him a couple of pre-seasons refining his craft and engine under a good development regime (as opposed to Ainsley!) will have him flourish in a Barlow like way... an great find.

Not to mention the disposal efficiency statistic is probably the most misleading and pointless stat going around. He does need to improve his game though and that's a decision making thing.

For our long term growth, I think not getting multiple games into Salem and kent at the moment is the most telling. They are crucial for us going forward, far more so than Frost.

Disagree. As a bigger bloke, he will probably need more time. At the very least, it's just as important that we are getting games into him too. Edited by AdamFarr

No, that stat doesn't tell you anything.

For one, it's disposal efficiency, not kicking efficiency. So theoretically the low value could be because his handpassing is appalling.

However, as has been done to death on this site, the DE statistic is a waste of space and says very little about a player's ability to dispose of the ball.

Huh? I wasn't talking about the DE stat and I happen to agree with you. I was commenting on how Vandemon's kicking seems to have gone to the shitter lately

When 20 touches and 5 tackles becomes the expectation, as it is with all inside mids, we'll see how he stands up.

I want to believe, but I've been scarred by a succession of players who look good with no expectations and then fall away.

Evans, Nicholson, Terlich, MJones the recent examples.

I can't remember any of those guys dominating games in the same way vandenBerg has though. Maybe Nicholson once in 2011 when we beat Richmond, and Evans' last quarter against GWS in 2013, but that's about it.

Yep, not apt comparisons.

Yesdont really trust the AFL injury list - Fitzy still test didn't he play 1-2 weeks ago?

Still good to see Frost, Grimes, Kent and Vanders getting closer. Salem obviously a little annoying.

Frost and Kent are a little unclear - they have been out for so long that I believe Mission said they will need a solid chunk of training before selection.

So maybe add 2-3 weeks on top? Vanders hopefully can come in for Essendon.

Hopefully we can get through the next 1-2 weeks without injury.

Drove past Goschs today and saw Vanders, Salem n Kent all jogging at a decent clip. Kent still looks very sore though. Could not believe the size of his upper legs, almost looks a little overweight but i guess that can happen when you dont train for 10 weeks. Great to see them all have a run though!

Can't wait to see these three back in the side. Best 22 by a long shot.

The only point of difference is Frost - listed as 5 weeks on the MFC website, complete with quotes from Misson

http://www.melbournefc.com.au/news/2015-07-07/trio-set-for-return

(I've re-ordered the list)

Melbourne injury list: round 15

Angus Brayshaw (neck) – test

Jack Grimes (thumb) – test

Aaron vandenBerg (hamstring) – test

Heritier Lumumba (toe) – test

Dean Kent (hamstring) – 2 weeks

Christian Salem (hamstring) – 3 weeks

Sam Frost (toe) – 5 weeks

Jack Trengove (foot) – season

Cameron Pedersen (wrist) – season

Christian Petracca (knee) – season

The list is starting to look a lot better. Hopefully we get a bit more of a look at Kent and Salem before the year is through.

Frost has been out for a long time and just started running outside so that might explain the difference. Still 5 weeks though!

Maybe 3 weeks training then 2 weeks increasing game time at VFL level?

Or

2 weeks running followed by 3 weeks of training

Frost's injury was 11 weeks, 2 days ago FFS

Frost might just be "season" as he would be available for round 20. Assume thats 3-4 weeks of the season. He might as well benefit from playing Full Back at Casey for their last 3 weeks.

Hopefully Harry won't feel the need to compete with Frost's Bob Marley-proportioned toe injury.

Well, does anyone here actually know just what injury Frost suffered

All we hear is "toe"

Some here seem to think he is being a big if a wimp, but really what would they know?

He'll be back in time for the finals.

Ohh hang on ...

    TIGERS PUNT CASEY by KC from Casey

    The afternoon atmosphere at the Swinburne Centre was somewhat surreal as the game between Richmond VFL and the Casey Demons unfolded on what was really a normal work day for most Melburnians. The Yarra Park precinct marched to the rhythm of city life, the trains rolled by, pedestrians walked by with their dogs and the traffic on Punt Road and Brunton Avenue swirled past while inside the arena, a football battle ensued. And what a battle it was? The Tigers came in with a record of two wins f

    It's Game Day and the Demons once again open the round of football with their annual clash against Richmond on ANZAC Eve. The Tigers, coached by former Dees champion and Premiership assistant coach Adem Yze have a plethora of stars missing due to injury but beware the wounded Tiger. The Dees will have to be switched on tonight. A win will keep them in the hunt for the Top 4 whilst a loss could see them fall out of the 8 for the first time since 2020.

    There’s a touch of irony in the fact that Adem Yze played his first game for Melbourne in Round 13, 1995 against the club he now coaches. For that game, he wore the number 44 guernsey and got six touches in a game the team won by 11 points.  The man whose first name was often misspelled, soon changed to the number 13 and it turned out lucky for him. He became a highly revered Demon with a record of 271 games during which his presence was acknowledged by the fans with the chant of “Oozee” wh

    TRAINING: Friday 19th April 2024

    They are out for a run just as it starts raining. It didn't last long, ended up a reasonable session weather wise.  Light duties, BBB, rehab Farris-White, Melky, Salem and Spargo, all with private trainers. They are all playing soccer, huge amount of noise. 36-40 (difficult to get a count) in the main squad, biggest I've seen it in ages. Choco is barking out the orders. Goody has intense body language as he observes. Bowey in a lime green cap (no contact), and in the sim
