Yet he's listed as 3 to 4 weeks away on the MFC website.. 

Who the [censored] runs the MFC website these day's..

According to https://www.melbournefc.com.au/club/people/staff-members, Ryan Larkin is the Department GM for Marketing, Communications and Digital and there would be a team below him who do most of the work.  If you have a grievance, the list is there for all to see.  Caitlin Nobes and Ben Gibson seem the most active in terms of the content on the Website.

3-4 weeks away from MFC playing is consistent with what he is saying - two weeks away from resuming at vfl for a half and then 1-2 weeks away from afl

I'm about 3-4 weeks away from checking myself in for psychotherapy where i'll spend ............ 3-4 weeks. That should see out the footy season.

Melksham getting close to missing the rest of the season.

I wonder how many clubs have lost 4 players for an entire season, before it even started and then several others who end up missing most of the season after playing a game or two?

kero wilson claims we are exaggerating injuries and other clubs have had it worse than us this year

i'd like to see an updated games-lost-this-year-to-best-22 (make it best 25 to make choice easier)

I like how they stated cautious approach, what were they doing for the other foot injuries?

Possibly not enough:

“This has probably been a little bit longer than we’d planned as well, but with your feet, we know through Jack Viney and Aaron vandenBerg and a few others … you don’t want to muck around with them too much,” Melksham said.

I guess 'a few others' include Trengove and Clarke.

Without counting the games others have had it pretty bad (for long term injury absences ie > 3 weeks):

Richmond:  Cotchin, Rance, Reiwoldt, Nankervis (ie their spine) missing for most of the season.  Houli, Astbury, Vlaustin (most of their backline) out for a fair chunk early in the season.

St Kilda:  Geary, McCartin, Hannebury, Stevens, Longer, Roberton, Carlisle mostly didn't have a preseason or out most of the year and all but Carlisle are still out.

The above players would be in their respective best 10.  So not much different to our best 10 absentees of > 3 weeks:   May, Lever, Melksham, Jetta, Hannan, Lewis.

Collingwood have also had a few significant outs.

The difference between those teams and us is they are not bleating about it. 

I don't agree with Caro that we are exaggerating them but it suits our narrative to use 'preseason/injuries' to answer any questions about poor form.  Like us fans, the media know a lot of other things aren't working and so have stopped buying this narrative that the club is trying to sell.

i agree quite a few teams have been hit by injuries. in fact i'd like to see year by year stats for the whole competition as i get the feeling that this year has been a shocker for injuries and missed games for the afl. it got me thinking if the rule changes/interpretations plus the defensive game plans of coaches, coupled with the rotation and more fatigue is contributing to a growing toll of injuries, and a more unattractive game......and of course the bias towards athleticism and physical conditioning at the expense of skills and natural flair....... many are saying carlton and norf are doing better with caretaker coaches as they are being given more freedom to players to play to their natural individual skills and football instincts

It's too simplistic to just add up total missed weeks.  There are many other factors, such as depth available, nature of missing personnel, timing of injuries (eg early in season resulting losses can lead to loss of confidence and a downward spiral).   

 Not that that is a complete explanation/excuse for where we are, but it seems every second match we'd lose 2-3 players with no one of note to replace them and endlessly fielding teams with players who haven't played together or entire lines missing best 22.   I haven't followed other teams injuries as closely, but I can't recall a worse run for us than we have had this year. Perhaps others can.

The lack of pre-season due to surgery and injury set us back. The injuries during the year killed us.

We will never know but we may have been able to deal with one but we and no other team could have a good year with both.

To compare other teams injury list without including pre-season is ignorant.

Yes DC I watched Footy Classified where she labelled our injury excuses pathetic, although I don’t know that the club has officially been claiming that as the main issue, others in the media have but there was the Misson injury analysis given to the board that got out I suppose. But then Caro just 10 minutes later was defending the GWS’s drop off in performance listing their injuries over the past 3 years! I mean injuries do make a difference and if any team could cover injuries it should be GWS with their extensive list of high draft picks, surely. Injuries don’t fully explain our fall from grace but they are part of the equation and I was not aware of Goodwin going on and on about them.

I agree - Goodwin hasn't been going on and on about them.  The media might be, and the fans (like myself) will bring it up as part of the explanation for the season we're having, but I don't think the club has made a big deal out of it at all.  I think Goodwin plays a pretty straight bat about it.

The fact is that we've had off season surgeries and numerous injuries at different times to deal with.  We need to learn to handle it better, but the fact is that we've had a large number of them and it's tough to overcome.

It isn't just Goodwin talking about 'the preseason'.  Listen to the Mahoney and Bartlett interviews of recent weeks.

Goodwin's references to 'the preseason' are now less direct  eg in this weeks press conf he said something like:  the reason (for why we are where we are) is well documented and we are addressing those reasons.   That sounds like 'the preseason'/injuries reason.

Not too long ago Viney said something about preseason problems 'but they aren't an excuse'.

i think these comments are valid but I use them to illustrate the club, as a whole, is still talking 'the preseason'/injuries.  I do not think we are exaggerating the preseason/injury problem but it may sound like we are if our senior people keep talking about it.

Other clubs in as bad a predicament as us:  Richmond (key injuries to top 10 players) and St Kilda (key injuries to top 10 players in the preseason who have barely played this year) haven't been playing 'the preseason' or 'the injury' card. 

I just think the club as a whole needs to stop talking or referring to 'the preseason' or injuries.  Move on.  Not all journo's are dumb.  They know that 'the preseason/injuries' are only part of the problem.  So far they haven't used the blowtorch to dig deeper.  It may yet come.

I simply don't understand why people (fans, media people and a high proportion of dl posters) can't understand that simple fact.

Leaving aside that it is well documented having a high percentage of your list completing a high percentage of preseason sessions is critical to having a successful year it is plain as day we are strugglong to run out quarters ans games.

    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

    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

    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.

    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
