MFC injury list - 2015


Chelly

Recommended Posts

Probably not a bad week to miss. Sydney aren't really blessed with quality small forwards, particularly if McGlynn doesn't play. Hawthorn on the other hand ...

It's only not a bad week to miss if you aren't normally in the starting 22.

We need to have our best 22 out on the park as often as possible, if we are going to improve at a rate that would be deemed acceptable.

Helmets don't stop concussion, just look at American football they have a huge problem with concussion.

and in fact the helmet makes it worse because it gives the player a false sense of security so they use their head (read helmet) as an offensive weapon

hence more head clashes, hence more concussion

The title is slightly 'misleading' as Misson has said he will be tested later in the week.

Ditto Dawes.

Salem isn't listed so he must have recovered ok from the concussion.

An interesting update on Christian Petracca's progress Petracca building training loads

It also talks about Jack T rehab but doesn't give any progress report. Left me feeling a bit pessimistic about Jack's recovery.

But it's good news on Petracca (although Roos has already said he won't let him play this season regardless of what the doctors say).

We will see!

We could do without having Howes cheap thrills. I am sure this is not the first occasion he has cleaned up a teammate.

You really think taking 'speckies' out of the game is going to stop concussions?

If Howe didn't go for the mark in that case and instead a Freo player marked it, you would be dirty with Howe wouldn't you? It was a freak accident mate, leave it at that.

Helmets make it worse in many cases

The brain bounces around even more...

I'd suggest you do one of two things:

a) provide us with links to the studies and research that validates the above

b) delete your post

It was actually a result of Howe taking that high grab against Richmond. Poor Nev got the knee in the face and will now miss 2 games for being in the wrong place at the wrong time.

knee to the face is a good whack i sure wouldn't want one.

I prefer if coming from behind he did the disciplined thing and punch the ball. I would prefer it more if he played in front and actually took a contested mark from there. Howe hasn't progressed much from schoolyard kick to kick.

True. But I'm not sure that a simple equation of US football and aussie rules is sufficient to say helmets in AFL wouldn't work or be worse.

I'm thinking of padded soft helmets. Surely they increase they time over which the momentum is reversed and hence lower the impact.

Hard helmets are more a protection against hitting objects like kerbs. Madness to use them as battering rams.

SWYL I think this goes against considerable research. Road safety organisations have done research as have many health authorities.

Or just search helmet safety.

I don't think comparisons with Gridiron concussion statistics and the role of helmets is relevant to AFL. In that game the head and helmet is used as a battering weapon with considerable weight and force behind it. There were many deaths in Gridiron in the old days which forced the take up of helmets. In AFL more head injuries are caused by glancing blows and knocks which a helmet in most cases will be effective in offering protection.

No, helmets don't stop concussion in sport any more than seat belts stop road fatalities.

Must have been a big wack.

No wonder Footballers from the 60's-90's are now having problems.

I heard Bell might be having some issues but havent heard of any others. Are there players with brain damage, ongoing issues I dont know about. who? just wondering

Trengove is done. It's going to be very hard for him. I imagine he'll start training again in the pre-season but if it flares up again, he'll retire. I assume he'll take on a role at the club though.

Helmets won't prevent brain trauma and the movement of the brain after a blow.

That is what people are referring to.

It doesn't mean we are saying they don't do anything or that bikie riders shouldn't wear a helmet or drivers their seatbelts - that's being a tad disingenuous.

The intentions have to be to reduce the amount of times the brain is forced to shock in an extreme fashion, not enable someone to come off 'slightly better' should they have an extreme shock to the brain.

Yes, I felt pessimistic about his recovery. His contract is up at eos so unless he is able to seriously run etc by then I doubt it will be renewed.

Last year's delistings and dropping Grimes this year, signals that Roos is definitely not given to sentiment so I'm not even confident that Trengove would be offered a rookie spot next year. Hope I'm wrong.

if he isn't on the playing list and the club could find the right role for him (that he is happy with) that would be great.

another issue with helmets (apart from dangers of false security and injuries to other players) is their weight

extra weight on the head can place extra pressures where head pivots on the spinal chord in side or whiplash type injuries

not saying it a case to not wear helmets just pointing out a potential downside

Interesting because i have heard Sports Doctors with very different views. The NFL problems are getting really bad for ex players. A lot of them cannot concentrate, hold down jobs

The thought over there is that the Helmets make players hit harder because of the percieved protection.

Contrast our injury list with the Swans:

Aliir Aliir (knee) - available

Isaac Heeney (ankle) - test

Alex Johnson (knee) - indefinite

Lloyd Perris (knee) - 1-2 weeks

Sam Reid (calf) - test

If the ones down as "test" get through then they'll have only one player with senior AFL experience not available to play this week.

Stupid analogy. What's your experience with treating and/or being first on scene to a serious traffic crash? From first hand experience I can tell you seat belts save many lives.

Happy to be proven wrong if you can show proof.

    TROUBLE by The Oracle

    Situated roughly in Australia's geographic centre, Alice Springs has for many years been a troubled town suffering from intermittent crime waves, particularly among its younger residents. There was a time a little while ago when things were so bad that some even doubted the annual AFL game in the town would proceed.  Now, the hope is that this Sunday’s Melbourne vs Fremantle encounter will bring joy to the residents of the town and that through the sport and the example of the participants,

    GALLANT by KC from Casey

    The world “gallant” is not one that is readily acceptable to losing teams in our game of football so when it was used in the context of the Casey Demons’ loss to Sandringham in yesterday’s match at Casey Fields, it left a bitter taste in the mouth.  The Demons went into the game against the St Kilda affiliated Zebras with the advantage of playing on their home turf (not that this has been a major asset in 2024) and with very little else going in their favour. The Saints have close to a full

    MEANWHILE by Whispering Jack

    … meanwhile, at about the same time that Narrm was putting its feet on the accelerator to obliterate the long-suffering Euro-Yroke combination, I heard someone mention in passing that Kuwarna was leading Waalitj Marawar by a whopping 46 to 1 halfway through the second quarter of their game over in Adelaide. “What is football coming to?” I asked myself.  In front of my eyes, the Demons were smashing it through the midfield, forcing turnovers and getting the footy to their forwards who w
