TMac has a meniscus tear requiring surgery, done for the year.

 

Meniscus tear can usually be easily surgically removed via arthroscopic keyhole surgery. Doesn’t usually require months off the leg. Most people are walking within a day or two. Of course MFC may choose to take a cautious approach...

If we were playing finals it may be different but more than happy with cautious approach.

I did mine last year. 6 weeks on crutches with a cyborg style brace (7-8 weeks). It depends on the type of tear.

 he’s been carrying a foot injury too... so time off legs could b helpful for a number of reasons. Hoping we’ve focused all our bad luck and bad kicking fr goal into one year ! So the footy curse can move on to another team in 2020 and leave us free fr one big crack it’ll at it.

already looking forward  to having him back ready  fr a big pre season alongside lever, melksham, May, Joel Smith, VDB ( if he plays again) Hannon and Jetta..

As I have no cartilage in either knee after 5 menisectomies I can understand the cautious approach. Minor tears can heal but take 6 weeks and more major tears can be stitched and take longer to heal. Not sure about current orthopaedic practices but surgeons appear to be very conservative about snipping out cartilage. cartilage doesn’t grow back and arthritis is more likely to develop in the knee later in life.

Do you think that VDB will ever play again?

Correct. And it depends on the approach the surgeon or physio take to recovery/rehab.

Honestly... prob not. But I do think he’ll have one more big crack to try to get right  in the pre season.

It’s that or cry. How good has 2019 been?

It’s been so good that I’m thrilled it’s not an ACL as I was fully prepared for the worst. 

This season can go eat a bag of d$&ks

VDB, the two Smiths, KK... all injury prone players.

Taking each player alone the list can carry them but can you support  a list where almost 10% of your players begin well behind par from a fitness viewpoint.

I'd give Tim S the rest of the season and see if he can stand the heat. If not.. goodbye

Joel Smith.. bye

AVB... bye (medical retirement)

KK... one more year.... he's still young and I think there's something there but be ready to delist/medically retire mid way through next season.

All are very tough decisions but they need to be made.

Tough on Joel Smith. I honestly believe he is going to be a very good player. Looked like he was about to tear the game apart before injury in the pre season.

Joel Smith has pace and kicked 6 on one leg (or groin) during the JLT. He can ply both ends. I dunno why would say bye to him

I hope so when he is playing, we seem to go up another level.

He also lost his Dad, i think last year, so he may be given some time from the club to get his mind and body right for next season?

I can see us finishing second last this year; with the rate of injury that we’re having at the moment, we’ll be lucky to have 22 players by round 23!

Carltank should be able to beat GC17 in coming weeks, and then they’ll be one fluke win behind us, which would put us equal on points but (probably) behind them on percentage

2019...what a year.......

11 games in three years with one goal at AFL level.

If we had no other players predisposed to injury then ... yes.... but we have four.. is he the best of the four?

Ah no it wouldn"t and you don't just "Remove" the Meniscus you actually repair it generally putting in some stitches , which take time to fuse the fibres together. You would not have seen him before next season, even if a Grand Final was at stake!!

    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

    CHANGES 2019 by The Oracle

    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

    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
