Perth rainfall June and July 2019 550mm,  Melbourne  78mm. 

Those "hard" grounds in Perth haven't worried the Eagles this year or any previous years.

That ground is notoriously hard George rainfall records be damned; both freo and meth coke players and footy dept have commented on it

Neither club trains there now as a result

Sadly I think there is more chance of that than a Mitch Clark path.

My youngest played halftime little league for the Dees v Eagles game at Optus. It was my first time walking on the optus surface. Noticeably harder than Subiaco Oval. Perth Ovals are built on sand which compacts hard and drains well, which doesn't allow for water to settle in like it does with mud/muck making it softer underfoot

I think it's always going to be an issue at Optus

I don’t know where you source your rainfall from but that is just plain incorrect regards Perf.

I know he doesn'tplay for us anymore, but just saw  that Hogan has been ruled out for the remainder of the year due to a recurring injury to his navicular.. 

Clearly Dave Misson's fault. Got all the hallmarks:

- a foot injury (players only get foot injuries at Melbourne/under Misson)

- a repeat injury (and as we know, repeat injuries only occur through either bad management or players coming back 'too soon')

- an injury that was misdiagnosed: "scans have confirmed that his right mid-foot sprain was unrelated to the navicular injury he suffered with Melbourne"

- an injury where it takes over a month to get an exact diagnosis (see above)

- an injury where a short period out: "The Dockers' confirmed that the 24-year-old would return to playing football in the coming weeks." turns into "Fremantle this afternoon confirmed that Hogan will require a 16-week rehabilitation"

- an injury where it takes over a month to get an exact diagnosis (see above)

etc. etc.

Plays for Fremantle now so I don’t care all that much, injuries are a part of professional sport. At least he’s still getting paid (a lot). 

There’s injuries and then there’s ‘injuries’. 

A navicular isn’t great - particularly one that requires surgery. 

I hope he recovers and plays good footy for Fremantle.

We’ve had 360mm since the start of the year. 

212mm in June and 72 for this month and counting. But yes, Melbourne has still had a hell of a lot less. 

https://www.watercorporation.com.au/water-supply/rainfall-and-dams/rainfall

The soil is a hell of a lot sandier here, perhaps the drainage is better making the surface harder? Or maybe not, I have no idea.

Keeping with the weather detailing of this thread, of all the capital cities in Australia, Perth has the wettest winter. 

Anyway.

I recall when Jesse limped off against us I posted that it was very possible a navicular reoccurrence and that the Dockers would hide it for a while so as not to upset their fans. Both happened.

Jesse has certainly had more than his share of bad luck both on and off the field. 

Hope he has a bit of luck next year, but poor games against us.

Will remain an unfulfilled talent. 

I think you're  right Moonie

I said last year that i thought Hogan would  have his problems,  that he'd  never fulfill  his potential,  that he'd  never play a full season for us or anyone.  That's  not a slight as such upon the lad just an observation  based upon his fitness and disposition  towards the game. I sense he does enjoy being in Perth far more. Thats good for him. I was glad to see him leave us and i still think he has a potential  that will never be realised fully.

Bring him back to his real home I reckon. ;) 

It seems we have a respected medical team now that could woo perennially injured players. It'd be funny if we nicked him back from Freo in a year or two for a second rounder. :D

Call it Karma But he’s re injured his foot when playing against us!

Hope he’s luck changes as he’s suffered a fair bit with the loss of his father & then his own cancer scare!

    SOCIAL DISTANCING by George on the Outer

    It was good to see the MFC players practicing the directives about social distancing at the game against West Coast.  Pity was that they continued to do so after the first bounce of the ball, as they allowed numerous WCE players run around un-hindered, with not a Melbourne player within 1.5 metres of them! They then found themselves looking at nearly a 5 goal deficit at the first break, which was to be essentially the final margin for the game. It is difficult to judge exactly what is going

    BEST IN SHOW by Whispering Jack

    I am writing this knowing that the AFL has deemed that the opening round of competition will proceed but fully believing that it should not.  The world is going through cataclysmic change as a result of the overwhelming spread of the Covid-19 virus and I agree that a distraction like sport would be good for the public. However, while the physical threat to the population is bad enough, there are other  issues to be addressed including the mental health of the community and the effects on th

    TASSIE DEVILS by Van Demon

    If you were looking for something new from the Demons that wasn’t there last year, you didn’t have to look further than the perfectly trimmed grass surface of UTAS Stadium last night as the team steamrolled the Hawks to record a comprehensive 32-point victory to complete their Marsh Community Series commitments for 2020. One new thing was the fact that for the second Marsh game in a row, the team finished full of running and they dominated the second half without the presence or the dominan

    SOUTH OF THE BORDER by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons will go into their final Marsh Series match with a strong lineup against the Hawks in Tasmania. Both Max Gawn and Steven May, who were recovering from injuries in first Marsh Series match, have both been named. It is unclear whether Max will be on restricted minutes and will likely get breaks in the ruck with Sam Weideman and rookie Luke Jackson getting their turns in the middle. Angus Brayshaw will be getting his first taste of competitive football despite playing in last week’s

    KANGAROO CAUGHT by Whispering Jack

    There was a fair amount of debate in our area as to whether the game warranted a full blown match report because it was felt that it was really an elevated version of a training session with match simulation but against a team in opposition colours. Although notionally the stronger side, North seemed to be using the occasion for the purpose of working on aspects of their game plan, one of the features of which seemed to be based on taking the longest possible route out of defence and good luck w

    JUST AN ABERRATION by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne unveiled its top recruits with new fitness boss Darren Burgess and mid-sized bull Christian Petracca sharing top billing in the team’s Marsh Community Series opener in front of 3,095 football starved fans at Casey Fields and thousands of others watching on screens of various shapes and sizes.  What they saw was a different Melbourne to the one that failed to run out its JLT Series games last year and then crashed in a heap early in the season proper with performances lacking the z

    CROWDOWN by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons open their 2020 season account with a "home" game against the Adelaide Crows at Casey Fields. It’s been more than 5 and half agonising months for the team and supporters who are eager to atone for the disappointing 2019 season which saw the Dees go from Preliminary Finalist to 2nd bottom on the ladder. The preseason campaign has been a hard slog with the addition of respected High Performance Manager Darren Burgess. We caught a glimpse of the gut busting sessions in the Melbourne

    THE YEAR THE SKY FELL by The Oracle

    After a number of years of linear movement up the ladder, the Melbourne Football Club unexpectedly went into serious decline in 2019, slumping from fourth to 17th in a season that coach Simon Goodwin described “a complete wipe-out”. Those around the club who tried to analyse the apocalyptic events that unfolded during the year were hard pressed to find a single reason for the debacle but the most plausible explanation was that the club’s troubles stemmed from a lack of fitness and injuries that

    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
