Great news re JKH well ahead of schedule 3-5 weeks

I know he gets s#1t piled onto him throughout this forum because he's not a superstar but his efforts later half of last year were great and always gives 110%, runs both ways (unlike many), tackles and is a reasonable kick...

I'm looking forward to him returning, he's the genuine depth we're missing from much of the rest

Wrong - JKH gets s#1t because he has barely improved after several years on the list and heaps of chances.  Have a look at the second half of the 2018 VFL Grand Final - he was woeful & barely got a touch.

The KK recruitment is looking like a huge blunder with now more concussions concerns. Someone also needs to be held accountable for Joel Smith injury. Its just getting worse and worse by each week.

Good to hear JKH is not far off as is Jake Lever

May to stiffen up our defence and KK to provide outside run and delivery. 

At the time, both selections made sense.

A huge blunder or at best a mistake or just rotten luck, but both players came to us with injury concerns. Of these two players, May is my big disappointment. He may still make it back and be a valuable player but at the moment, there is a big grey cloud overhead. 

Hugely disappointing.

That covers it Ernest, but was it foreseeable?

In the case of KK yes but he was only the steak knives in the deal.

May / his agent it appears did the ultimate con job on us.

The agent's job is to sell his product, like any salesman. The salesman will always try and convince the purchaser that it is a great deal.

It is the buyers job to check for all the defects, the risks and make a judgment. 

I am not blaming the club. All you can expect is that the club made the decision on all the available evidence and came to a decision after a proper assessment and discussion involving medical and footy people. Another club could have made the same call on May, although perhaps not KK. 

Players change clubs every year with injury worries. Lynch, O'Meara, Scully, Rohan, Hogan etc.  Some work out some don't. That is the risk. If it works out, it is a great trade, if not, it is viewed as a poor trade. Long term absences from the field always look bad as it does at the moment for both May and KK.  Chronic injuries often mean that players will have to be nursed for the remainder of their career, missing games as the injury flares up.  

Anyway, it's easy to be negative at the moment, harder to be optimistic.

As a old sage once stated about becoming wise, ""wisdom is to transform a curse into a blessing, a challenge into an opportunity-its just a matter of how we interpret the situation.""

Seems we have been making poor decisions for decades Ernest in the MFC DNA it would appear.

And this is why I think our win/loss tally is going to be minuscule this year - like 3 or 4.

The club will put players into July/August surgeries so they’re back for the start of the pre season. They also won’t bother with May or Vanders and maybe even Lever and Jetta. They may also call time on Viney at some stage.

So we’ll be playing half a VFL side in the second half of the year and a win will be most unlikely. All in the pursuit of setting ourselves up for the best pre season possible.

I could be wrong but i just see us being ultra conservative now that our season is likely shot.

If we start doing that, watch the tanking calls come out, which we will somehow get done for and lose our first two picks! (not that we tend to get high picks right anyway)

The old sage, would have trouble arguing with that OD. 

Remember that the old civilizations think in terms of centuries and thousands of years. Unfortunately, even a few years may be too late for some of us. But as they say in the classics, it's a long season!  I can hear your response......yes, sadly.

Melb has continually picked up players with injury concerns. We would have to be one of the most fragile sides.

Wow.

Pretty hard to win games with 13 players out injured.

Jetta is getting close to the rest of the season.

AVB and KK could be as well.

Joel Smith is possibly round 15 resuming in the VFL and will then need a few games to get fitness up, so nearly the end of the season.

Lever , May,  Hannan, Maynard and JKH at least the 2nd half of the season at best.

Just wow.

Is this the end of Vanbenburg?

Keeping him, in hindsight,  is looking like a bad decision, when he wanted to go to the Swans and we could have traded him for a young player or pick.

He has been injured for the last 3 years, with a run at it only late last season.

Considering all the time out, it's amazing how much he was able to tear it a new one when he did get on the park

If only... the beast could have been a great player 👹

Not sure about great player, but when fit he is a good player and tough and we don't have a lot of them.

I reckon Misso must be trolling with this comment about preuss (my bolded bit)

Braydon Preuss | Shoulder – 1 week

He’s not quite there yet, so he’ll need another week. It was quite a significant injury and he did really well to get up for the St Kilda game, but playing in the second half under duress probably sent him backwards a little bit. We’re really confident he will be OK next week though.”

Wow, if Joel Smith does come back in 8 weeks that will be around 15 weeks off with the injury. 

That’s alright Joel, go back on in a JLT and see if you can snag a sausage or 4.

It is bloody ridiculous.   Lingering groin issues can seriously impact a players career, and hes only young too.

As did GCS.  They demanded a top 5 ish pick because they knew they would get it this year as an FA comp pick when he left. 

Ignoring his fitness and injury issues, without that FA comp pick there is no way he would have been valued a top 5 pick by clubs.  No other club could offer anything like it.  I reckon it would be more like mid teens pick at best.  We fell for it or were desperate or both.  Sure we needed a big defender but we surely over compensated GCS.

    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

    A LITTLE RAY OF SUNSHINE by KC from Casey

    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. There were a few highlights at the ground that in past days has seen many titanic batt

    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

    A MAN’S ERRAND by KC from Casey

    A young and undermanned Casey Demons were sent out on Saturday to the Swinburne Centre in the shadows of the MCG on a man’s errand against a very experienced Richmond VFL combination which is the clear ladder leader and fielded no less than 18 AFL listed players. It was expected to be a rout and the Tigers made easy work of it in the early stages when they held a 26 point lead by quarter time. To their credit however, the Demons weathered the storm and kept their opponents within the range

    THAT’S FOOTBALL by Whispering Jack

    As the season rolls on towards the finals and the football world witnesses the aftermath of the sacking of the league’s unsuccessful coaches, it’s almost  inevitable that the spotlight will turn firmly upon the complete and utter failure of season 2019 - the Melbourne Football Club.  For a team that finished in fourth place last year and was heavily touted as a premiership contender, the fall from grace has been dramatic. As things stand, the Demons look certain to finish 13 places down on

    At half time in Sunday’s game at Trevor Barker Beach Oval, things weren’t looking too flash for the flailing finals prospects of the Casey Demons. Key forward Sam Weideman had suffered a concussion in his first contest and, with a few exceptions, the team was playing like a rabble rather than a finals contender. The Demons were 23 points in arrears to the Zebras and their season was headed towards oblivion. It was the skipper Mitch White who spurred his team on by word and by deed - he fini

    It’s a crying shame that we happen to be playing against the resurgent St Kilda just as they have managed to overcome a rotten patch of form with an upsurge in momentum resulting from the sacking of its coach and the appointment of a new one.    The Saints had a purple patch at the start of the season winning four of their first five games (including the one against the sloppy and sluggish Demons in Round 5) before collapsing into the sink hole that led to them parting ways with coach Alan
