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

How the [censored] is Frost still 4-6 weeks away? I said this exact same thing two weeks ago! It's a toe for pete's sake!!!

He's no world beater but we're desperately lacking someone that can play on the enormous forwards (Tippett, Hale) and pinch hit in the ruck.

426 curse strikes again!

Yet consider the armchair critics joy were he to 'come back early' and miss more footy. 'Haven't a clue", "more mismanagement like Hogan 2013" etc etc.

Get him right, then play him.

Only if you are vying for finals, or for top 4 or 2, and have a full team around them, and depth, none of which applies to us, should this be considered.

See link below to the latest AFL club injury lists.

AFL injury update

We have 9 players who in my opinion would be in our best 18 on the injury list.

I have included Petracca as a best 18 - lets face it if fit he would be in!

Most clubs have 5 or 6 with some having only 2 or 3. A quick glance shows the struggling teams seem to have the most. The Swans look blessed. Freo ok. Even the Hawks can't squawk to much. Two number 2 draft picks out for the year for us! Weak, puny players are more prone to injury.

They're also on a ridiculous diet.

Are GCS doing the Paleo thing? If not, then what could explain the fact that they have by far and away the worst injury list of any team in the competition? What does a diet have to do with the injury list?

I am worried for Neville Jetta. Something must be seriously wrong to get a concussion and miss at least 4 weeks of footy. Clearly he is not passing whatever tests they are putting them through, which is a real concern when you are talking about a person's brain. You have to wonder what sort of damage and risk he is now exposed to for his long-term future. Horrible stuff.

I can't recall the last time we went through a season without being riddled by injuries.

And in the past many blamed BB for the problem. Who do we blame now if anyone?

I had the same thoughts. I hope he is ok. he had only just started making a name for himself.

Nev will have to wear some sort of head protection or his confidence will be shot, the next time he gets a whack.

TYSON 1

DAWES 1

JETTA 1

VINEY 2

SALEM 3

KENNEDY-HARRIS 3

KENT 8

FROST 6

PETRACCA SEASON

TRENGOVE SEASON

Thats 10 players down and 7 in my best starting 18

I'd say the 8 who have played this year are all best 22 and therefore huge losses for a side like us with no depth to speak of.

The other two I have faith will be best 22 in 2016, and I reckon if both were fit this year would be best 22 this year too. Might be a little/far too optimistic with Trengove but I see upside in him that makes us a better side.

I think they decided to take extra precautions with him and give him four weeks off when he could have feasibly returned after two.

I think.

I hope.

Either way, it's obviously not a good situation for him to be in.

larkin on the radio this morning says injuries are up this season across the board

blames speed of game and tackling ferocity as main reasons

says afl closely looking a slowing game down through rotations

says no good intell on whether this would increase injuries due to increased fatigue

I seem to recall someone (maybe TDI?) mentioning that the club were taking a precautionary approach as he has had a few concussions in the past. That was mentioned (in a training thread I think) about 3 weeks ago and at teh time it was mooted that he would possibly miss 5 weeks.

I can't think of anyone else so i guess it'll just have to be BB.... apologies BB :lol:

Dom Tyson is a possible return from injury but Sam Frost who was 4 - 6 weeks last week is still at 6 and so is Dean Kent. These are two blokes with a bit of badly needed pace who seem to be treading water as far as their return from injury goes.

Melbourne injury list: round 10

Chris Dawes (calf) – 1 week

Sam Frost (toe) – 6 weeks

Jay Kennedy-Harris (groin) – 2 weeks

Dean Kent (hamstring) – 6 weeks

    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

    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.
