I don't call that running its just striding with a slight limp

What a sad sack you must be.

It's a great sight. Must be an exciting but very nervous time when a reco patient starts to test the joint for the first time.

And besides, both feet are off the ground. It's the Olympic definition of running.

I don't make comments like these lightly I have seen a lot of injured player come back from a knee injury and some never make it back because they have not done enough work.

I was a trainer with the MFC in the 1976 to 1985 and an athletics official for 30 years (Olympics in 2000 and Commonwealth Games 2006) so I have seen it all.

I love the club and I hope he makes a great recovery like Max Gawn who did his knee twice but he could be the MFC version of Alex Johnson who did his knee 6 times.

I hope those who think I am sad sack, I hope you put in the similar amounts of work that did for the MFC.

I would think he has done work on the weightless treadmill first not running outside.

Looks to have a lot of quadriceps wasting.

Yeah pretty common Chook which is why the limp will be excaberated. My son did an ACL playing footy and that was the most singular issue with rehab. The Quads just waste away like anything and it takes a truck load of work to get them back. My Son missed a year and then came back strongly and played good senior footy before injuring knee again. Result knee totally wrecked EXCEPT ACL which the specialist remarked that the ACL was still ROCK SOLID. So he embarked on a rigourous program under the watchful eye of one of the Collingwood Physios who concentrated a lot on building up the Quads muscles to withstand anything. Essentially my son did an AFL Rehab. Hopefully that puts you in the picture. Cheers Fence!

I hope he goes to USA like Petracca, that training was intense

 

I was lucky enough to talk Jake at a function pre GWS game and I asked about his knee and rehab. Fascinating insight as he will follow Trac and do the rehab training at the same facility but didn't do anything like it when he tore is ACL in the TAC cup. He had more trouble with his back and hamstrings which where tended to rather than the knee. I wish him well.

Yep, straight line running with Zero deviations! 

He will be right. as an aside I take the point that his first ACL Rehab wasn't as comprehensive as what he will do now! 

So he will be much better of!?

It is fantastic to see Jake doing any type of running at this stage of the year and it shows his determination.. A real professional the kind of person we are going after because they are worth their wait in gold. Well done Jake  and hope to see you play in round 1. Wish you the best.

Anyone heard anywhere when he’s expected to return. ACL’s are usually a year although Goldsack did it in 6mths but he’s older. That would be round 11. Others have said they are 9mths nowadays. That would be close to the start of the season. 

I have no idea.

I think there would be 0 rush. If it takes 12 it takes 12. I prefer he takes 15 and never does it again. 

He would probably aim to play round 1, but my guess is we will see him after the bye.

You will find they took the graft from his hamstring.  There has been some amazing advancements with Knee reco's you have a number of options for the Graft one being Transplant which I think Goldsack had, a Transplant means you only need to rehab from the knee and not the area they take the graft as well

    THE ICING ON THE QUAKE by Whispering Jack

    It’s not Christmas yet but if the Melbourne wins its last game of the 2021 season, then many of its fans will be celebrating early. There already are some parts of our town where the pending festivity is preordained. Houses are decked out with red and blue banners and streamers, some of which appeared as early as last Saturday week, on the morning after the Demons’ magnificent 83-point crushing of Geelong in their preliminary final at Optus Stadium. While it’s great to see the numbers of lo

    CAT SKINNING by George On The Outer

    When they defeated the Geelong Cats in the 2021 AFL Preliminary Final on Friday night in Perth, Melbourne proved that there is more than one way to skin those cats.  They did it in the ruck and in the middle, they did it in the forward line, they did it in defence and around the ground, but importantly, each and every player a Demon guernsey spent his night at Optus Stadium skinning an opponent. Following the after-the-siren win against Geelong in Round 23, there was an expectation of

    THE POINTY END by The Oracle

    The AFL’s two oldest clubs, Melbourne and Geelong, face off on Friday evening in a sudden death Preliminary Final. It’s a game that promises plenty in terms of fascination and intrigue as a result of the rivalry that’s been building between the teams over recent encounters that have been tight struggles which have gone to the wire with two of them decided by after-the-siren goals. The added touch of mystery attached to this week’s meeting comes by virtue of the fact that it’s going to take

    THE VFL YEAR THAT NEVER WAS by KC from Casey

    The rising case numbers and the continuing lockdowns in Victoria and NSW spelled doom for the 2021 VFL season which went through a slow, painful demise before its recent official cancellation. After weeks of indecision, the AFL decided to pull the plug on the season with the 10-0 Bulldogs recognised as minor premier, but without a premiership cup and without awarding the J.J. Liston Medal for the best and fairest VFL player. It was somewhat fortuitous for the integrity of the competition t

    TAMING THE LIONS by George On The Outer

    With nine finals debutants in the side, the Melbourne Football Club had a daunting assignment ahead of it in the First Qualifying Final — to overcome the competition’s highest scoring side, the Brisbane Lions. In the end, the Demons accomplished the task by putting the bite on their opponents on their way to taming the Lions and recording a 33 point win that propelled them into one the two Preliminary Finals of 2021.   It was one of those debutants, Luke Jackson, who put the bite in more

    RETURN TO NEVERLAND by Whispering Jack

    The greatest Demon A HIGHWAY OF DEMONS by Whispering Jack CHAPTER SIXTEEN - RETURN TO NEVERLAND  I have a six year old grandson who recently took up the family tradition of following the Demons. He had his first taste of the game a few years ago when he went to the “G” with his parents to watch the 107-point massacre of Carlton and he went to another game in the following season which was also a W for the Dees. But his appetite for the club has grown exponentially this year and wh

    METAMORPHOSIS by Whispering Jack

    I’ve always believed that when the home and away matches come to an end, the football season takes on a completely different shape and character. During the regular season, each team’s goals progress as the weeks pass and if you’re good enough to survive and make the grade, the situation changes. The comparison can be made with the life cycle of a butterfly going through stages from egg to larva to caterpillar, cocoon and in the end to a bright and colourful creature that emerges from darkness i

    STEALING THE CATS’ CREAM by George On The Outer

    They were leading by 44 points well into the third quarter of a game to decide the minor premier, having kicked nine unanswered goals. The Cats were about to lap up their bowl of cream, dreaming of next week but the Demons led by Max Gawn had other ideas. In a stunning finish, they stole the game from under them to claim the plaudits as best team and top of ladder position. In a remarkable game, it all came down to Max having to kick the winning goal after the final siren, something which s

    SKIN THE CATS by Whispering Jack

    The task ahead for the Demons as they wend their way down the Princes Freeway to Geelong on Saturday night will be to skin the Cats. For them to come away with the points from this game would mark an historic occasion for the club as it will finish on top of the ladder for the first time since its last premiership year, 1964. And it was in that year, that a trip to Corio Bay to meet the reigning premiers in Round 12, was one of the catalysts for Melbourne’s surge to the flag. It was a top o

    REACH FOR THE STARS by George on the Outer

    It was a game of great significance for the Melbourne Football Club. A win would see them keep top spot on the ladder with one round remaining. To achieve top place in the Round for Reach when we are all inspired to “Be Like Jim” and reach for the stars was a great way of honouring one of our heroes. All the better given that it was done by way of an emphatic 41 point win against Adelaide! It is worth remembering that, but for the umpiring mistake in the previous encounter with the Crows, t

    TICKETS PLEASE by The Oracle

    A lot of water has passed under Princes Bridge in the five years since Melbourne last met Adelaide on the MCG. The Crows were riding high at the time while the Demons were mid-table and scrambling for a win to stay in the race for the finals. The 30,000 fans who had tickets to the game were thoroughly entertained by a close, high scoring affair that ended in tears for fans of the home team. Not even an eight-goal second term could help them.   Times have changed.    In the fi

    ELECTRIFYING by George On The Outer

    What more can they throw at the Demons of 2021? Covid restrictions, hubs, aircraft circling between airports before landing for games and now a match stopped for 30 minutes to give a flagging opponent its second wind? To date, none of those distractions has swayed the team from their winning objectives. The game against West Coast in Perth can be marked on their report card as another positive outcome after yet another test. There was much at stake for both sides.  Melbourne had t
