Injury List - Season 2019

Recommended Posts

Meanwhile, Melbourne key defender Steven May is pushing to make his comeback in the VFL this weekend.

The former Gold Coast co-captain has been sorely missed over the past eight weeks with a groin injury, but is finally ready to play.

May is expected to step out with Casey against Werribee on Saturday and then ramp up his case for a senior game from next week.

May and Jake Lever loom as huge boosts to a depleted Melbourne side which has won only three games for the season.

The Demons are also happy with his progress off the field after the full back was spoken to for breaking team rules last month.

Melbourne prohibits players from drinking alcohol when they’re injured but May was spotted having a few beers with friends at a Richmond pub.

Just saw that. Im sure they are fuming over at bomber land. I do HOPE we're smarter with May and don't rush him to appease the supporters. Id rather he was long term right.  

Who said they weren't smart? They followed a cause of treatment/recovery that has worked in plenty of cases. But not all. Didn't work for Jo. Nothing to do with mismanagement, everything to do with the uniqueness of each person's physical makeup.

Well... I think it’s fair to say that neither of us know the answer to that. One of the questions they have to answer is a bit like our Joel Smith  question, in that they played daniher again 5 days after his first jlt. 

 All I can say is if we rush May back  and he does his groin again I’m going to feel there was a lack of caution shown. Which is how I ,and many of us, felt about Joel. People make mistakes at all levels of professional endeavours and after the smith debacle  I’d just rather we err on the side of caution here. With both Lever and May.

If you follow best practise it's not a mistake - regardless of outcomes.

I must have misunderstood what Mahoney said at the time? Or maybe he deliberately misled us? Or maybe both the media and public don't give a stuff for research and journalistic standards nowadays? I dunno, but I'm close to giving up.

Melksham with a setback. I’m telling you right now that anyone at Melbourne who gets a foot injury is basically doomed. 

Put him on ice for 2020.

Can’t see him playing this year and maybe never, for us at least. Horrible mismanagement.

Whole medical staff would be the worst in the comp. Every year we seem to have more injuries than any other team.

Surely Joel Smith doesn’t just have a “groin injury” of the stock standard variety. Some more details about what is actually wrong with his groin might make me less worried that our medical team are a bunch of drunk amateurs. Does he have OP?! Has his groin fallen off? What’s happening?!

I think someone posted about 427 pages ago that it was OP, which explained why he went back on the ground during the JLT. It’s an overuse injury so sending him back on wasn’t going to cause any more damage. Still wasn’t a great look.

As above, reported as OP. Thus the length of the time out, though as reported, seems to have turned the corner on the way back to playing/fitness.

Yes lord forbid we get injuries in a contact sport. We'd be better off just not playing anyone.

We are often told that a player is out for 2-3 weeks but we now know that our medical wan.ers really mean 10-12 weeks with a possibly of more. Yes we don't get the steak knife as a freeby. Surely Pert must find out what is going on or what's no going on with long term injuries.

Er ...

Most of that list is "Test", so presumably playing. It also includes Lewis, even though he played last week.

Apart from the two young long-termers, list is Jetta, Melksham, Smith and VDB. Plus Maynard who has a week or so with concussion.

    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
