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


Chelly

Recommended Posts

Interesting we have gone from 12 players injured around about round 4 through to round 16 or so when we dropped down to 6 injured for a short while, then it is now back to 9.

Biggest issue I feel is not just players out per se, but the lack of team stability. Even given the players available, the constant changes in personnel are not helping.

Doesn't help the players either. Fitzpatrick and Toumpas (OK, OK) have both been in and out of Casey - whatever they might become, neither we nor they are going to find out if they can't string a decent run of matches together.

Bing I have said earlier we have played at around 60% of our potential man power all year as many of the injured this year would be rated top 25 on our list. But I am not sure basic man power available explains some of our lame performances this year.

However if we had an injury free year in 2016 things could look up very quickly assuming the entire list undergoes psychotherapy pre season.

i believe lobotomies all round have been scheduled post season to avoid players over thinking. this should simplify their decision making by ensuring the first option is the only option

hard not to think otherwise, od

but then i'm just a veil of negativity

Well it is good dc that we are now realising it.

Perhaps we should review all our comments over the last two weeks that we think could possibly have de motivated the players and deleted them.

Would that help do you think?

Nah bull s-it.

If you are feeling negative take a look at Geelongs injury list, that will make you feel better.

Sam Blease Concussion 1 week

Josh Caddy Knee Test

Mitch Clark Calf TBC

Cameron Delaney Knee TBC

Mitch Duncan Calf Test

James Kelly Ankle Test

Lincoln McCarthy* Foot Indefinite

Why put a player on an injury list if they are "available"?

I've never understood this.

Because he was out injured this week but is now available.

I think it is so that payers don't just drop off the list and then everyone asks questions.

Then how come that has not been done with Frost.

He has disappeared from view. 2-3 weeks on one report then nothing.

Missing without a trace

I have thought Josh Caddy and Mitch Duncan are grossly overrated, especially Caddy. He looks like Tarzan and his impact and decision-making in big games is average.

Kelly is over the hill.

Lincoln who?

Rivers has been playing on one knee since his Melbourne days.

The only player that would genuinely impact them is Stanley, who with Blicavs, has become part of the new age unpredictable quick ruck set up of the AFL.

Our injury list is chalk and cheese. Petracca, Frost, Kent would give us so much of what we need.

Hey i didn't say the system was perfect!

But that extra information does allow us to differentiate between a player who leaves the list and is now available and a player like frost.

TGR I highlighted the MFC players on the list, that was my point. (3 exMFC all injured)

I agree with your analysis though.

Does anyone have the faintest idea what the problem is with Frost's toe?

He has been 2 -3 weeks now for 4 months.

Do we have another Clark / Trengove problem here?

From GRRM Training report -Absent: Trengove, Lumumba, Vanders, Bail, Frost, Kent, Fitzpatrick, Howe, Hunt

What is the story with Frost? Not injured & not training?

Frost? Not injured, not playing, not eligible for VFL finals? I was looking forward to see how he would go this year, big and fast but injured for all but the first few games.

    ICEBREAKER by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons have broken the ice for season 2024 with a pulsating come-from-behind victory over Port Melbourne in which it took the lead for the first time at the halfway mark of the final quarter. The game played in mild Autumn conditions in neutral territory at Kinetic Park, Frankston, never reached great heights in standard but it proved gripping in character at the end at the Casey Demons overcame the Borough to win by 15 points after trailing badly early in the second half.  P

    MAULED by Whispering Jack

    The writing was on the wall from the very first bounce of the football. The big men went up, Max Gawn more often than not, decisively won the ruck hit out and invariably a Brisbane Lions onballer either won the battle on the ground or halved the contest and they went at it repeatedly until they finally won out. Melbourne managed the first goal from Alex Neal-Bullen but after that the visitors shut out every area of Demon presence around the ground except in the ruck duels. It was a mauling.
