Injury List - Season 2019

Recommended Posts

Anyone who thinks the injury list of 2019 is just down to bad luck is absolutely kidding themselves.  There may be an excuse for Melksham (game in balance - 3 injured), but the amount of times an injured player has been put back on the park when the game was insignificant and/or the outcome was essentially concluded...is mind-blowing.

The overt examples that make one head-scratch, surely puts in doubt decisions made regarding other players on the list.

Pert...review inevitable.

The Joel Smith fiasco is obviously a poor one and the optics are shocking. But who are the other examples that you are referring to (where you can positively confirm that a player was hurt during play, pulled off the ground and assessed, put back on the park and made the injury worse) in 2019?

Maybe I haven't been paying close enough attention. Or maybe a few here are speculating a little too much.

TGR you have some credence in your argument but please list at least "6/8 overt examples" otherwise you are grossly exaggerating.

l will start off and name Joel Smith JLT 2 now it's over to you.......

PS  No and spate  of injuries and sending back on the field threatening an existing one are 2 different issues!

And of course the elephant/s  in the room are the 15 players who had pre-season surgeries!

IIRC after Hogan broke his collarbone he was back within a couple of weeks. Whack a surgical steel plate over the bone and boom, as good as new.

4-6 means 4 - never playing again, so I guess that's inclusive of 6-8. Seriously though that's good news, anything that's still 8 or more over the next few weeks is probably getting to the shut them down for the season range.

Hogan was excellent first up then pretty awful for a few weeks IIRC.

Hibberd could be back for the Crows game but just as easily could be given until after the bye.

We are starting to get some players back or near back from injuries and IF we can win 2 out of next 4 which will be tough we hopefully turn after bye with close to full list barring further injuries. We then can come home with a rush and come close to the 8. If we do not make it I can assume no opposition will be keen to be playing us.

58er, one overt example is enough in my book.  Joel Smith's was pathetic, in a JLT when we had fit guys on the bench.  Sports science with loading minutes has gone mad.

Off the top of my head....

Steven May - Groin.  Came off.  Got assessed.  Went back on when the game was done and dusted.  Little wonder he will miss months, not weeks.  But I guess we can rest easy trying to blame the 'way he presented'.

Viney - AC courtesy of Stack.  Got assessed as a partial tear.  Came back on when game was well and truly over.

(Viney - foot surgery fiasco of 2017)

Melksham - Foot, but I am happy to give them a GOAJC due to the circumstances.

 

 

Usually, us on the outside can only see a hint of what is going on.  Might be lucky to find maybe 1 per year where the decision makers made a calculated risk.  We have had a series of dumb decisions this year in particular.

Has it been conclusively proven that J Smith's injury was made worse by going back on? Initially that seemed to be correct, but as Saty in the training thread for today (14/5) has referred to J Smith having OP,  I now wonder if that is necessarily the case. I admit I don't know what causes OP but I'm also not sure that being asked to continue playing with a sore groin would make it worse.

DV that may be so but it seems to have taken a long time fir the OP to be diagnosed and now is the injury Joel is fighting.

I think we may have to wait fir the book by Misso or Todd or Maxie to find out. Surely a Medici in Oz somewhere can enlighten us with some knowledge of the risk of deteriorating or worsening an injury with exertion or no rest afterwards.

To be fair our medicos have done well in the Roos early Goody era but think they have suffered this year and are under extreme pressure now due to some suspect times of recovery and a couple of shockers that gave string out indeterminedly  plus the programs for all the surgical 15 and limited pre season training sessions due to late 2018 and extra leave under AFL tules around Christmas.

I reckon we are  about up with all other teams fitness now and our last 2 fourth quarters has enabled to get the points.

Dont forget we had a handful of more scoring shots and plenty I50 entries to assist. 

I still  await TGR's response!

Thanks for your comment DV maybe the jury can sto brig out on this matter.

Wasn't  that a fabulous finish for a 6 gamer DG!  A rookie that's showing some real impact early.  Very nice prospect  indeed DG and a good news story this year.  Flying under the radar so far too!

I met Marty at the Family Day before the season started. What a personable young man he is, and a credit to his parents. I had a good feeling about him from the start. Glad to see him doing so well now after a shaky beginning. I liked the way he kept his cool and didn't over celebrate his first ever goal. Unlike the Gold Coast players who whooped and hollered over their last goal of the match as though the game was over and won. Love Marty.

Fabulous to hear DG.   I think we are gradually building a very tight nit unit down at Demon HQ.  In fact, injuries aside, i would say it's pretty much upon us (as a club) as we speak.  Momentum (belief / confidence / enjoyment of the game) is growing before our eyes since the match against the Hawks.

I have a funny feeling that IF, and it's a very big IF, we can get our act together with more connection up forward we will go very close out west on Friday evening and might even snag three in a row!

Jack Trengove... how many instances does anyone need ?

Viney's plantar fascia.

TMc's toe.

Gawn being allowed to come back, too soon.... although this aided us,  with St-Pedo... and TMc to the forwardline, via being 2nd ruck.

Can't work out whether this means:

  1. Bring a TV evangelist to Australia to work some form of miracle cure invoking his imaginary friend; or
  2. Send an Australian-based TV evangelist offshore to remove the curse that person has placed on the club.

Either way, though, sounds like a plan.

I think it's high time we look into the acult.

I've seen posters up for a reworking of the brilliant 'Pet Cemetery' with original tagline (&  disturbingly relevant to us) - 'they don't come back the same'.

I get your point and don't argue with any of it, however I asked for examples from 2019. Not the last 5 years.

 I think the last 5 years is relevant considering all of these instances of poor injury management have been overseen by Misson and his team. It's a long history of irresponsibility and it is now starting to reek.

    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

    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

    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

    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

    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.

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
