Well he did turn 20 yesterday.  Its all downhill from there.

Lewis was on the Sunday Footy Show and only mentioned Gawn's ankle injury, no mention of Oliver. It looked like he was cramping to me.

I can confirm that, he threw up at least 6 times and was really struggling at 1/4 time.

to play the game he did under that duress is a real credit to the kid

They brought out the sawdust at half time. Too bad for anyone who fell in it before that!

A tough effort by Clarry though.

And there were a couple of handballs that caught my eye as GIF-worthy. Will see what the replay reveals!

Maybe he and Watts snuck in a few celebratory tequilas before the game? Jack certainly played as if he were drunk.

I reckon he wasn't right. In the last few minutes following a contest on the boundary he only jog/walked back to his mark and was very ginger despite not taking contact. Bit of a decoy role I feel.

 

So do we know Oliver wasn't hurt? If that's cramp then it must have been a helluva cramp.

What a one eyed piece of %#^* 

Triple m should sack him from their panel

ive just gone onto twitter to give him an earful. Everyone should do the same 

Wow.

A commentator didn't give a player votes so they are a piece of &*%$, should be sacked and mass abused on social media.

You need some perspective in your life.

Heh, very ginger...

 

He'd probably be a bit more dehydrated than usual after emptying his guts, so it was probably cramp. 

MFCSS says it's the season though.

I was reading about Tom Mitchell and how he is in line to break the all time disposal VFL/AFL record for a season. In wanting to check this up I found another stat that will be broken. The most handballs in a season is currently owned by Josh Kennedy last year with 472 (av 18.88 across 25 games) last year. Tom is currently on 372 (av. 21.9) and Clarry is right behind him on 363 (av 21.4). Assuming Clarry keeps his average up for the rest of the season that takes him to 471 (Tom 482). Clarry plays 1 final and he should be past Tom and hold the record for himself. Not bad for a 2nd year player. 

Assuming we make 1 final, he will also hold the record for the 18th most contested possessions in a season of all time and might sneakily make top 20 of tackles in a season if he holds his form.

This may be heresy in this thread, but shouldn't  Clarry be managed for a week. He has been full on this year and you feel as if he needs a freshen up coming into this phase of the season.

I have thought similar. Maybe vs Bris? There is a bye before the finals, but nevertheless it's been a big year for a guy just turned 20. Has been an inside midfield mainstay while others around him fell to injuries.

Theres 5 games left, and we are fighting for finals.

Nobody should miss games through being managed, but they can have light weeks on the track.

What Oliver has done this year at his age without rest, bye round excluded, is remarkable.

Given last year's issue with preliminary finalists you would think the club is all over this.

The club has amazing data on players over and above normal footy stats. The GPS tracking can monitor sprints, jogs, overall distance etc. They know how many contests a player gets to etc. Any drop off would be looked at and a rest plan implemented.

Having said that I have a sneaking suspicion Maynard might come in for Clarry this weekend.....

Would be better to rest him once Jones is back I would think. 

This makes the most sense, IF they want to manage him.  

It also looks like Maynard is waiting in the wings as well if we need some extra re-inforcement around the contest.  But I'm banking on Oliver playing out the remaining 5 games.

I think the role model of Viney would say to all the younger kids, play, play hard and push yourself hard to support the team. 

Clarry, like Viney, is a competitive beast. Play him through to the pre-finals bye. No mollycoddling, no relenting in our push for finals and top four.

The club must ensure we play finals.  While we'd all love a top 4 finish and a GF,  gambling on that is not worth the risk of finishing outside the 8 this year.  So I wouldn't rest any top player unless there was internal evidence he was getting tired or injured.  Who knows,  if we win the next few matches they may be able to rest in a few weeks once we are clearly going to be in the top 8 (and 4) regardless of the last few matches (unlikely I guess).

Hats off to him. Throwing up at quarter time, cramping all over the shop after the game, and he was absolutely massive yet again.

He has been a 19 year old right up until this week. I don't think there would have been too many better seasons put together by 19 year olds.

I wonder if Clarry could be one of the rumoured outs.  Was definitely very sore after the game last week and didn't train on Tuesday (according to track watchers).  I didn't hear anything mentioned regarding training on Thursday, so it might be nothing.  But noting the inclusion of Maynard, it makes me wonder if he might miss.

Has Goodwin named a team and then changed it at the last minute yet this year?

Why'd he start this week?

Clarry has become an essential clearance player for us.

If memory serves, isn't Clayton on the lower end for minutes played? Maybe that's changed since earlier in the season though.

    BACK IN STYLE by Whispering Jack

    From the moment when the Elton John character in the movie “Rocketman” burst into its opening scene dressed as a flamboyant demon on his way to an addiction rehabilitation session, the game was on. Here was yet another film about a person gifted with a meteoric rise to stardom finding coke, booze and a hedonistic lifestyle that led directly to a destructive crash into the abyss. Ultimately, these stories end in total disaster (“A Star is Born”, “Bohemian Rhapsody”, “Judy”) but this one resulted

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES 2019

    PART ONE - OVERTURE  I have a disclaimer at the outset. I’m not a fan of the races - be they horses or motors of any kind. Once the final siren sounds on the football season, I find the month or so that follows and corresponds roughly with the Spring Racing Carnival to be the most boring time of the year for sports fans. You turn on the radio and you’re confronted by the monotonous drone of a self-proclaimed racing expert or by the nasally twang of an ex-jockey banging on about the equine p

    CHANGES 2019 by The Oracle

    PART 1 - IT’S A LITTLE MORE COMPLICATED THIS TIME This year’s free agency, trade and draft period will see the usual drama and upheaval as the AFL’s 18 clubs seek to better their lists in order to challenge for finals and possibly premiership honours. Long before the final siren sounded on the season just over a week ago, the maneuvering was under way with player agents and clubs discussing possible player movements and in some cases, deals had already been done.  Yesterday, the r

    HOW FAR SOUTH? by George on the Outer

    It was appropriate that Melbourne was playing its last game of season 2019 in Hobart.  After all, how much further south could the team go? And much as it has done in many of the previous 22 games, the side managed to extract a loss from a winning position by simply giving the ball back to the opposition time and time again. In fact, they gave it back to the opposition to the tune of 53 points from turnovers while, by way of contrast North Melbourne contributed  only 17 points to their oppo

    COOKED by The Oracle

    I can vividly remember when the Demons ventured onto Blundstone Arena for the first time in early 2016 only to lose to the Kangaroos by 20.11.131 to 21.10.136.    Melbourne was then a team on the up and up: young, enthusiastic and bold. It gave up a huge quarter time deficit after kicking against a strong wind but made that up by half time and fell dramatically short after an exciting high scoring affair.  The team lost no fans that day - they were willing to take the game on and attac

    HELP by KC rom Casey

    The Casey Demons finished off their home and away season against Frankston at Skybus Stadium on Sunday with a narrow, unconvincing 6-point victory that left the door slightly open for a top eight berth when the VFL finals begin in a fortnight’s time. While sunny skies prevailed over Frankston in the morning, the skies became overcast by noon and heavy waves pounded the bay nearby as the rains came in to greet the players as the game started. And conditions stayed dark and dreary for the rem

    THANKS BUT NO THANKS by George on the Outer

    Thanks, but no thanks! In a round where the club was supposed to thank their fans for the support during the year, the Melbourne Football Club chose to do otherwise with a 53 point loss to a team that sat 15th on the ladder.  Don’t give us cheap jumpers that can’t be sold in the Demon shop.  Don’t give us vouchers to shop there, give us something on the field, which is why we come to the football in the first place. It was a disgraceful performance, which started with a disgracefu

    SLEEP OUT AT THE MCG by The Oracle

    Around about 12 months ago Melbourne and Sydney fought out an epic battle between two top eight teams fighting for the best possible ladder position in the lead up to the finals. The Swans triumphed by 9 points at the MCG after the Demons came back from five goals down at three quarter time. But for its poor kicking for goal, Melbourne might well have won the game and finished in the top four. Who knows what might then have happened for the club in September? As a consequence, the person re

    Two clubs that have been hard hit by injury recently took part in a dour battle under dark clouds and, with intermittent showers falling, it wasn’t a pretty game at Victoria Park on Sunday. Despite all that, the Casey Demons added a little ray of sunshine to their day to get the job done over a "traditional" rival with a 15 point victory over Collingwood VFL that breathed life back into their season.

    THE RETRO ROUND by George on the Outer

    We have seen it all before… Yes, a wonderful idea to showcase what used to be in football.  Big crowds, umpires who knew how to apply the rules and not opinions, high marks, skilful players. But for the Melbourne supporters their retro is what it has been like for the past 10 years. Losing games, end on end, year after year.  Opportunities squandered in front of goal. VFL standard players running around at the MCG. Just more of the same, and the game against Collingwood was no ex

    THE PEOPLE SPEAK by The Demonland Crew

    Thanks to Demonlanders for their input into this week’s preview. Ralphius Maximus is short and bittersweet: We'll crack in at the bounce to create a contest, win our share of the ball, butcher the forward movement and get scored on easily from the intercepts. Not that hard to predict. Big Demon says: Unfortunately Collingwood will win because they have a lot more to play for. We will be good in parts but really the season is well over so we will have to put up with those bell

    WHAT, NO BLOOD? by George on the Outer

    The feeling when turning up to the MCG on a Saturday night to play a top four side in Richmond, while the Melbourne sits cemented in close proximity to the bottom of the table is like attending the Colosseum in Ancient Roman times. The expectation is that a bloodbath is about to occur. There are 100,000 Richmond members and 50,000 Melbourne members, and despite the fact that it turned out to be a wet night after half-time, a crowd of only 37K bothered to turn up. That should never have happ
