9 out this week. Vandenburg unlikely to play until round 15 at best. He may be gone. 

Looking like we may have made a mistake in not letting him go to the Swans and trying to get Zak Jones as part of a deal.

We are unlucky with our trades, in that we got Lever, May and KK denying us young kids in the draft and all 3 are not playing. Meanwhile Jesse, while not dominating, is at least playing.

Before some of you jump on me, I said we were unlucky our 3 aren't playing because of injury.

He might be better if he can get a game or 2 in...  prior to the Eagles match.

2 matches prior,  is the Hawks match.

He is very injury prone. Can't keep on list if he can't manage 2 get on the park we aren't good enough 2 afford such a luxury. Fingers crossed he plays towards middle of the season or else the trade that didn't happen would've been better 4 us in hindsight.

And, of course, Dean Kent who could barely get on the park for us in his last 2 or 3 years is fit and saddling up against us this afternoon.

Yes our injury management is Consistently Ridiculous And Perennial.  

ie. CRAP

It also exposes our selection rationale as shaky. The lad (Smith) was not 'allowed' to play on - he was forced to play on as there was no-one else to fill the gap had he been more sensibly managed and withdrawn from the game. Meanwhile, OMac stayed on the ground doing nothing once again as an automatic selection, and I am sure that there were firing young guns on the listings of the Selection Table capable of filling the gaps on the bench; for example, that crucial mismanagement left by the badly injured Smith, and the less than effective OMac at all costs mentality. Who is holding whom to ransom?

Never fear!  Rest assured he will fire up and play a blinder today.  All our ex-players seem to find an extra gear when they come up against us!!

Whats with the 4-5 week? Is it a slightly more optimistic version of the dreaded '4-6 week' which results in 2 - 3 games peppered in by end of season, or is it something entirely new that we have not before experienced?

I have barracked for MFC for the very reasons that make us different to the rest of the rabble. Perhaps we are the only Club really looking after our players.  Are any rugby players living meaningful lives after 50 years at all? I think not.

AVB is cooked. Maybe we should have let Sydney take him and got a reasonable pick in return.

I think the 4-6 basically means they are still sore and they are hoping the soreness disappears in the next 2 or so weeks, and then they need a month of training to build up heir fitness base again to be match fit.

It’s the only reasonable conclusion I could come up with.

Funny you should say that.  Jesse is looking a lot leaner and fitter.  Maybe our fitness and rehab regime isn't all it is cracked up to be. 

Certainly their is enough anecdotal evidence saying we play injured players or let them stay on the park when injured.  Then the initial injury gets worse.  The latest example being Jetta playing all 4 qtrs when he could barely walk.  Now out for 10-12.  Should have been benched.

Are we certain KK has concussion like symptoms? Some rumours doing the rounds it’s the neck issue giving him trouble again.

Just had a look back through the weekly injury reports. 

Stephen May 

Round 4: 2 - 3 weeks

Round 5: 2 - 4 weeks

Round 6: 4 weeks

Now I understand the human body is unbelievably complicated, but how does a players recovery go so dramatically  backwards when he is supposedly benefiting from being in an elite sporting environment.

I guess the alternative question is why put an estimated return date on players when the club clearly has no real idea.

    THE LAST POST by George on the Outer

    The Last Post sounded out in memory of the fallen around a packed MCG at the Anzac Eve match against Richmond. The silence of the crowd assembled was in tribute to those who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country. But the Last Post was also an appropriate symbol of the finals aspirations now gone for the Melbourne Football club, after a mere six rounds of the 2019 Season.   How far has this team fallen!  From a Preliminary final contestant barely six months ago, to cellar dwelle

    THE BRIGHT SIDE by Whispering Jack

    I don’t often agree with Dermott Brereton but he came close to the mark last week when he labelled Melbourne a “team of downhill skiers” that works much harder offensively than it does defensively.  And he was looking at the bright side of the team’s game plan. That proposition has been clear since before the season started. It was obvious from the first JLT game against Richmond when the team leaked multiple goals in a short space of time as players gave metres away to opposition forwards.

    CASEY VS THE AUSSIES by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons played an exhibition match against an Australian Under 19 team at the MCG on Easter Saturday but the game was played with more than half an eye on the fact that whilst their senior counterpart was taking part in their AFL Round 5 game against St Kilda later that afternoon, they also had an assignment just four days later against Richmond.  The team, with 10 AFL Demons, opened strongly and dominated the first half to lead by four goals at the main break before taking most of

    EASTER BUNNIES by George on the Outer

    Easter is supposed to be an occasion of hope, revival and ultimately celebration.  But for the Demon supporters it was none of these as yet again their team was made Easter Bunnies by the Saints. With the exception of Christian Salem, there was not a single winner on the ground.  The danger for the Demons was giving the Saints their own hope and enthusiasm by conceding early goals.  That is exactly what happened in the first quarter, although with some ridiculous frees from the umpires clos

    MARCHING IN by The Oracle

    The most embarrassing loss of the 2018 season (perhaps aside from the Preliminary Final) for Melbourne was the one it suffered in Round 15 against lowly St Kilda. The Demons came into the game as a red hot favourite but were embarrassed by the Saints' speed and willingness to take the contest right up to them for virtually the full four quarters. It was a defeat that they were to bemoan for the remainder of the season. Their arrogance in going into the game and taking an opponent lightly was a c

    RELENTLESS by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons returned to the winning list with an emphatic 54 point victory over a limp North Melbourne VFL combination at Casey Fields on Saturday. Smarting from last week’s thrashing at Box Hill, the Demons came out of the blocks intent on redeeming themselves for their embarrassing start to the 2019 campaign.  After a brief early bout of inaccuracy, the goals flowed as a result of relentless pressure applied to the visitors who were constantly forced into error.

    TO A “T” by George on the Outer

    Thursday night football - not something Melbourne FC are accustomed to doing, especially after barely garnering a Friday night game for years. Yet with this opportunity, the Demons soundly beat the Swans at the SCG and put their season back on Track. This was not only a game of mental toughness, since the Demons had so far failed to win a game in 2019 and faced possibly a season ending prospect of 0-4, should they have failed in Sydney.  History was against them, and Buddy Frankli

    SWANSONG by Whispering Jack

    They said that in 2019, the Melbourne Football Club was going to take its game to another level but we were never prepared for the level the club is reaching as it approaches the fourth round of the season holding up the entire AFL ladder in a match that could be its swansong for the year.    We were meant to be premiership contenders, not playing off for a wooden spoon which is what will be the case unless there is a sudden and dramatic turn around in our fortunes!    And whilst there

    A DAY TO FORGET by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons started the 2019 in unimpressive fashion with a 62 point loss to the  Box Hill Hawks at Box Hill City Oval. It was a total contrast to their 2018 opening when they monstered the Coburg Lions but the circumstances were entirely different. Twelve months ago, the Demons were able to go into the match with a large contingent of AFL listed players while yesterday, they went into the game with 12 Melbourne players, mostly inexperienced.  They were also hampered by the AFL sc

    2019 IS NOT 2018 by George on the Outer

    Seems like an obvious statement doesn’t it?   Yet the MFC coaching staff/team seem to have forgotten to change their calendars on January 1st. A 3 goal loss against the equal bottom side in the competition and now with a 0-3 record for the current season, it should be obvious that things have changed from 2018.  Not so on the field, as Melbourne continue to play the style which got them to a Preliminary final.   Once again the Demons saw 20 goals scored against them for the game.

    THE NIGHT OF THE TORTOISES by The Oracle

    Friday night sees two clubs of which a great deal was expected in 2019, facing off in the battle of the slow starting tortoises. Both have had calamitous starts to the season and are sitting at 0-2. One of them will, by the end of the evening, be seeing their season slipping away from their grasp.   Both clubs are playing without confidence and without purpose. The Demons, who had the best-performed attack of all clubs last year, managed to convert 73 entries inside their forward 50 metre a

    THE CAT RUN by George on the Outer

    It truly became a “Cat Run” with an 80 point win to the home side, an outcome that had us wondering what happened to the Demons of 2018 when they got to a Preliminary final on the basis of their “brand” of contested football?   Well that part hasn’t changed any, since the likes of Clayton Oliver can win the ball 44 times in a game including 15 clearances, Angus Brayshaw racks up 33 touches with Jack Viney chipping in for 27 of this own.  In the ruck Max Gawn had 53 hitouts on the night, and
