You know things are going well when you come to demonland and find medical diagrams.

I can't help but think Melksham and Lewis fighting through the pain to play on was key to us actually having a chance to win.

Way I see it Melksham did nothing after the original incident to cause a break which means it was always there so he was always going to miss weeks, even if we didn't know it at the time. 

I can understand people's frustrations particularly with the Joel incident in JLT 2. But this time 4 points and what slim hope there is left in the season was on the line. It will most likely amount to nothing.. but if we do want to try and scrape into 8th this year this could be the difference.

Our injury list is so bad it resembles the krap that comes from a politicians mouth. At the moment we are getting a double dose of both.

The pain he showed on the medical table before coming back on surely would have indicated more than a sprain. 

Players are tough and want to play. Melksham strikes me as being one of the toughest (I'm not sure why I think that.) Is it possible he wouldn't show he was in pain so as to get back onto the ground?

Why the outrage, for all we know going back on the ground may have helped heal Jakey boys foot and reduce time out of the game. Looking forward to the whining from so called doctors on here. 

How would it have helped? He’s out for 5 weeks!

Can we actually assemble a full team for this weeks game??

If Weideman is unavailable for Casey and they take two travelling emergencies to Perth the AFL listed players available for Casey will be around 5.

In theory the emergencies could take the red eye back to Melbourne and be available for Casey on Saturday at 2pm. Not ideal but possible.

Had  a look at the league wide injury lists and many clubs have long lists. Collingwood was near ours in number for example.

I realise it all about who is out and for how long but the quality of our depth which has been a problem for years is really showing.

I thought Lever was meant to play VFL last week?? 

Could we be lucky enough to get Lever and Hannan playing VFL this week and get them into the team V GWS the following week? 

Then May to come back in against Adelaide or Collingwood?

I think they've said the want lever to play at least 2 games. This week will likely only be a half or 3 qtrs, and then a full game next week.

He has said he is eyeing the NT game against Adelaide, but I wouldn't be surprised if he is held until QB

he didn't play against the Bombers but if he did play this week... even for a half that would be great.

Haven't heard about Hannan

This weeks game is against Port Melbourne who are a non aligned team which generally means that their across the board team strength is quite high.

The list is looking decidedly healthier!

The five players listed as 'Test' are expected to be available this week🙂

Pleased that Sam is one of them and has avoided hip surgery🙏, at least for now.

KK is aiming to play a game before the bye.  No detail on AvB status.

Would be an amazing effort if Hibberd is back 2 weeks after his collarbone.

Laughable that seriously injured players are kept on because of 'rotations'. They're virtually useless on one leg - better to send someone to rest as the deepest forward.

I'm pretty sure this is not uncommon. If I recollect correctly, other players have returned in quick time from this sort of injury once a plate is inserted.

There has been no progress on the status of Smith, Kolodjashnij, Vandenberg and Jetta since the initial incidents.

Does that mean there actually is no improvement, or we're just plucking figures from thin air to complete the injury reports?

AVB now at TBA is a goddamn disaster. 

Also Joel Smith has to be the worst blow out of an injury I can recall in recent times. Closely followed by Steven “I turned up unfit and drank beers with mates” May. 

Spargo with foot injury which going by our history could be a one week or 3 year injury (refer to above).

16 blokes out. WTF.  now two of our best in Melk and Hibbo. 

Reckon that will tip us over the edge from average to downright poor.  Brace yourselves for Friday night!

We were worse than downright poor against the Suns. Can barely recall a MFC team missing so many targets. Remarkable we won. 

But as they say in the classics - it's funny old game. Who'd of though the hawks would roll GWS or blues push the pies?

I’m assuming the only reason he came back on was due to rotations. He couldn’t even jog when on the field.

Do we sob it up and concede it’s not our year due to injuries or do we draw inspiration off Richmond who are getting it done despite their injury crisis?

The Tigers had a dream run with no significant number of injuries to top liners prior to this year for three to four seasons.

Might having fewer chances to play at AFL level inadvertently have helped those at their VFL to develop/learn and mature to a point they were more capable of taking the step up to AFL level vs many of our depth players (and those of some other clubs)?

Unfortunately our depth as been shown up as poor at best, with a few exceptions.  Maybe in part for the exact opposite reasons?

    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

    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
