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'.

A cult or occult or both?

How Picket Fence imagines himself differs from how the rest of us imagine him. Guess which is which:

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

Agreed Smokey I asked TGR and haven't seen any and I volunteered Joel Smith.

I was looking for from say Goody era not 2013 on. Agree we weren't on the money with Jack Trengove but I have no doubt at all ( my own opinion only) that Jack Viney declared himself available for us in late 2017 vs Port and it was not Club Officials who forced him. Yes it was like last week and I reckon Goody took his word (Prob too scared to argue ) 

Are we looking at Gawny R1 this year or when ? 

Other than that I can't recall any others.

in 1998 we were the same going to Perth plenty injured and Robbo came up trumps and other DLanders and myself have referred to This game that got us going again to a Prelim.

a great challenge but hero's are born in these circs. TMac May need to kick 4/5!

All speculation. You have no inside information on even what the specific injuries are, let alone how they presented at the time. Nor do you have any medical expertise yourself.

You're also guilty of confirmation bias (though we all are, it's the way our brain works), in that you're citing examples that support your (supposed) case, while ignoring all those that don't. i.e., you're ignoring all the times that players come off with injuries, are then patched up and sent back out - and are fine. Which is the majority of cases.

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.

Thanks TGR sorry 

I missed your post (quoted just know that U hadn't seen any examples)

Stephen  May came back after half time vs Cats at  Geelong not when the game was dusted ie late 3rd Quarter.

And (only my opinion ) Jack bullied the Coach and selectors and prob doctors and was allowed like last week to make his mind up how his body (foot) was.I agree this was a debacle and was surprised when it seemed to reoccur again last Sat so far with a good result. JV was great in the last 49 secs !!

I believe Joel is the only recent case but maybe Jack Trengove could have "slipped" through the net in the last 5 years.

Agree I think new medicos and a review of this at end no matter what eventuates in 2019 is necessary.

Aldo U believe the line coaches should also be nervous about 2020on!

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.

For god's sake.

Some of you should spend a week on a cancer ward. The best we can say about medical science and the identification and management of injuries and pathologies is that it's stretching it to even call it a science - informed guesswork would be closer to the mark, though even the "informed" bit gets lost in many cases.

I have a heart condition. The doctor who told me 10 years ago that I needed an operation wasn't wrong or incompetent. He was basing his opinion on the information he had in front of him, in comparison to similar cases and outcomes. I still haven't had the op.

I went across to Perth and saw that game with the family. It was sensational.

I gave us no hope whatsoever, with the injury ravaged team we had, just like tomorrow.Can lightning strike twice?

My son and I were asked to help with the banner and we were more than happy to oblige.

A very memorable day indeed.

Did you tell him you were a Dees fan? That is not good for the ticker.

Seriously though, I hope you are well and continue to be so for many years to come well into your old age and enjoy seeing a few more Dees flags, though one would be nice for starters.

Your speculation in the your first paragraph is totally and utterly incorrect.

Typical pulpit response that attempts to get an 'A' for grammar and attempted overt common-sense, but actually gets an 'F' for accuracy.  Rather than assume, it aint that difficult to do 5 minutes of relative research around here.

 

 

You obviously think the current medical/training services team will continue in 2020?  You remind me of the Liberals with climate change.

 

In relation to our team, I see parallels with Jordan Lewis, who had a great history of leadership, insight, experience, respect, and bravery, but when the basics are needed (earning your spot, keeping your feet, and being disciplined) he falls short.

All should still be available. 

Eagles player took out Salem going for a mark. Anb was an accidental contact. Smith got body slammed and expect Eagles player to be either fined or a 1- match penalty.

But as per the North player last week. Durdin I think it was. Got suspended for a perfectly legal shepherd because his opponent was concussed.

So... the logic (haha) would be suspension for the Eagles players as per the new rule introduced this year.

Accidental head knocks which lead to concussion get you suspended

Who knows. There is always a chance that when a player gets concussion they never play again.

    SAME STORY, DIFFERENT SONG by George on the Outer

    Melbourne was still suffering from the same old story - a lack of AFL capable players from which to choose at the selection table - and the Western Bulldogs got to sing their song again. But wait, that wasn’t the Doggie’s song we’ve been hearing for the last 30 years, it was some other concoction and no-one knew the words to it but whatever it was, they got to mumble it with gusto after a huge 8 point win! The sad thing is that the Bulldogs (or Footscray or whatever they choose to call

    DOGGED by KC from Casey

    On Sunday, the Casey Demons met the Footscray VFL under the roof at the same venue where their nemesis took them down in the 2017 grand final and the result left them with the same feeling of disappointment - this time with a seven point defeat that ended the club’s four game winning streak and made things a lot harder in terms of playing in this year’s final series.   And, as has so often happened this year, the Demons let the game get away from them with but failing to take advantage of th

    BARKING MAD by The Oracle

    There was so much hype proliferating about Melbourne’s prospects for season 2019 a mere four months ago, that one could be forgiven for thinking anyone contemplating the prospect of a bottom four finish for the Demons at the time was barking mad. That however, is the prospect that they face at the moment and a loss to the Bulldogs on Sunday would make it a virtual certainty.  The club’s downward spiral after several years of moving steadily on an upward trajectory has been well documented i

    THE MELBOURNE WAY by George on the Outer

    Much has been made by the coaching staff of playing a “Melbourne way” style of play. The nail-biting finish by the Demons in the dying minute of the game could not have been any more the case in point.   Leading by a game-high 38 points late in the third quarter, and by five goals at the final change, this should have been the catalyst for a romp home to an easy win.   But that is not the “Melbourne way” and the supporters, especially those with a severe case of MFCSS (aka intense inse

    PINK AND BLUE CAN’T KICK TRUE by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons took on the Northern Blues at home on Saturday  in a game that was crucial in terms of their hopes for September and they took away the valuable four points on offer after some worrying moments. Most of those worries were self-inflicted as a result of some shocking inaccuracy in front of goal, sloppiness in play and a little bit of indiscipline that all combined to make the game a lot closer than it should have been. The final scoreboard showed the Demons winning the P

    GO FIGURE by Sam the Stats Man

    In May last year, a rampant Melbourne side demolished Carlton by 109 points at the MCG. The Demons did as they pleased and ran rings against a young, abysmal Blues combination. The Dees led in virtually every key performance indicator, notably entering the inside 50 metre mark 63 times to 33 and the superiority of their attack was highlighted by a 74% shooting accuracy rate (to 47%).  A little more than a year later the two sides face each other for the first time since that rout and the ta

    GORN AT THE GABBA by George on The Outer

    With Melbourne leading the Brisbane Lions in the second term, and the game in the balance, a Max Gawn ankle injury signalled that the Demons were as good as gorrnnn for the match. Without a suitable 2nd ruck and (once again) forced to use either Tom McDonald, Tim Smith or Sam Weidemann in the ruck the Demons found themselves without a forward line that could kick a winning score. Not that anything really changed, as the forward line has been completely dysfunctional all season and one

    GAMBIT by KC from Casey

    The opening gambit of Saturday afternoon’s game told us everything about who would be its main players and who would come out on top. The Casey Demons were eager to turn the tables on the Box Hill Hawks who beat them in last year’s grand final and then gave them a first up mauling at City Oval, Box Hill. Kicking with the aid of a strong breeze in the opening term, Braydon Preuss’ first hit out went straight to the diminutive Jay Kennedy Harris who pounced with a 70 metre shot at goal that sailed

    MURDER BY NUMBERS by Sam the Stats Man

    The respective ladder positions of this week’s combatants tell the story of one side on the rise and the other in steep decline. Since their most recent meeting which took place early last year, the Dees and the Lions have changed positions. They are opposed to each again on the former’s home turf with the locals in fine fettle after blowing St Kilda off the park at Marvel Stadium.  The Lions’ home ground advantage has been a major consideration so far this year. They have won five out of s

    MUD HEAP by KC from Casey

    In the opening round of the 2018 VFL season, the Casey Demons enjoyed an emphatic 107 point victory over Coburg at Piranha Park. The team was loaded with Melbourne listed players (half a dozen of them were in the team that beat Fremantle on Saturday) and the side was in its way to a grand final appearance. A season and a half later, the club returned to the same venue in the hope of kick starting a season that had gone somewhat awry under new coach Sam Radford and while they tasted victory (as y

    PRETENDERS SENT PACKING by George on the Outer

    Fremantle, the Perth pretenders at sixth on the premiership table should have easily accounted for the Demons, sitting barely a game off the bottom of the ladder.   And for the majority of the game, it certainly looked that would be the case, until the final quarter, when the Demons stopped giving the Dockers easy chances, or making plain, dumb decisions. Not that their situation was helped by some simply appalling umpiring during the match, that kept gifting Fremantle easy scores.  Th

    ORWELLIAN by Whispering Jack

    Please permit me to begin this rather tragic pathetic preview of Melbourne’s forthcoming game against Fremantle with some personal reflections.   Two years ago, we had visitors staying with us who are all sports fans so we arranged tickets for the entire family for the Melbourne vs Fremantle game at the MCG. The Dockers were struggling at the time while the Demons were on the up and up so I was fairly confident about the outcome. Naturally, we all left the ground bitterly disappointed.
