“Melbourne say no massive cause for alarm there. Just needs a little bit of a spell, potentially, and he’ll be right to go.

“Nothing structurally there at work.”

Isn’t the only way to get match fit to play footy games? 

I was concerned he might be underdone too but only from a touch/form/confidence perspective. As far as I can see there’s no evidence whatsoever that he wasn’t ready from an injury recovery point of view. People are flying off the handle without having the facts at hand, as usual.

I wasnt flying off the handle, as i said, i only went off what a teammate said.. so its reasonable to assume there might be something to it.

Evidence that Lever was “rushed back”, please? I thought he had been in full training for months before he returned.

Well we are sitting 3rd last on the ladder so naturally every minor problem is the result of the clubs incompetence. Remember May was also rushed back underdone but he played well and is playing this week so we forgot about that one

If he misses this week with soreness in the same knee that was rehabilitated after playing only 3/4s of a VFL game over 3 weeks that would be evidence in my opinion. Obviously the year out and the training period seemed patient enough, but then to be recalled to the much greater speed and impact of AFL level footy on such limited match play makes it seem like they rushed the final stage.

 Playing 90% game time would have had an impact also. Played less than that in total for the previous 3 weeks. The Frost concussion would have been part of that equation of course, but that seems a pretty clear picture to me.

 

Pretty sure it was a game and a half.

Going a bit by memory here, but fairly sure he played 70% game time in his first VFL game, less than 10 minutes in his second before the ankle injury and then didn't play at all in the 3rd week.

Take this as you will because it's been passed on by literally a mate who knows someone who knows someone (I know, I know), but what I've heard is it's a bone on bone issue in the same knee he injured previously, caused by a knock in the first quarter of the QB game. Could potentially miss more than a week, but similar to Edmund's report it's not a structural issue and it's not major or season ending by any stretch.

Rumour at this stage of course, but the mate who passed it on only passes on good info generally.

Thanks lord for passing on the info. 

We can not catch a break. This season has been one of the most frustrating seasons I can remember and that’s saying something considering what we have been through.

So what you’re saying, is that it might have nothing whatsoever to do with being “rushed back” (from a 12 month rehab) and might just be bad luck? You could knock me down with a feather!

(Sorry if it seems like I’m picking on you - I’m not, just frustrated by the general tone in this thread. Thanks for passing on the info.)

Haha yep, absolutely could be that (pending accuracy of information), almost thought of not passing it on as I was expecting a possible wack from you!

However, also could have been caused due to the lack of preparation given it seems likely it was the incident where he was very slow to react and was tackled awkwardly with contact to his knee. One of those 'open to interpretation' things that come up so often in footy I guess.

So you could say his rehab was all fine but his preparation was not (if that kind of makes sense).

No worries. This is a new innovation stemming from the coaching overhaul.

Until further notice, every injury at the club will be deemed the Mystery Injury of the The Week.

Continues the trend of us fielding well below our best side each week, while the opposition field close to their strongest side. Then to rub salt into the wound, the opposition lose their best players against us, making it easier for their next opponents to beat them.

Add that to our pathetic skills and you have season 2019.

What's really troubling is when the opposition lose players during a game against us and we still can't beat them when they have reduced rotations because of it. How often does that happen!

In fairness Collingwood probably had as many best 22 out as us on QBday.

Takes me back the infamous Melbourne V GWS game in 2014 (Roos's first year) when they didn't have a fit player on the bench in the last quarter but still out scored us: 5-1 to 1-5.

Just emphasizing, rumour.

    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
