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?

    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

    COOKED by The Oracle

    I can vividly remember when the Demons ventured onto Blundstone Arena for the first time in early 2016 only to lose to the Kangaroos by 20.11.131 to 21.10.136.    Melbourne was then a team on the up and up: young, enthusiastic and bold. It gave up a huge quarter time deficit after kicking against a strong wind but made that up by half time and fell dramatically short after an exciting high scoring affair.  The team lost no fans that day - they were willing to take the game on and attac

    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

    THE MOMENT OF TRUTH IS COMING by KC from Casey

    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
