Injury List - Season 2019

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

According to this list:- https://www.afl.com.au/news/2019-03-13/the-full-afl-injury-list-postjlt-update-

 

we have 15 payers listed as injured. That is an incredible number. By comparison, Port Adelaide have 9. I don't mean to be an alarmist, but I think we will struggle in the early part of this season, and hopefully come good in the second half. However, the loss of Hannan is significant as ANB looks to have gone backwards and Stretch is not up to the standard required for AFL . When we let Kent go, it was hoped that natural development of these fringe types, add JKH, would help fill a void. Spargo has been underwhelming, Garlett is out...we got a small forward problem.

Where did it say his recovery timeline was any different to what it is now?  Just curious.

I think it stems from anecdotes from people that have spoken with Lever and him saying he's aiming for Round 1 or thereabouts. Can't blame him for raring to go but the club and the medical staff are understandably taking a more conservative approach. Of course this is only speculation on my part.

Lever would play Rd 1 if he could, at the Sponsors he asked people jokingly to stop asking when he is back , not his decision, he will be told

To be fair, there are a number of players on that list that are available to play.  Fritsch, Jones, Melksham, Harmes, Viney and AVB will all be right for Round 1, while Smith and Preuss are listed as tests.  Take those eight out and it's just seven players injured for more than a week.  It's not panic stations yet.

Cheers, I thought it might have been something like that.

I wouldn't be too stressed from that list we have 5 available and 3 listed as "test" with May being back in RD 2. Baring any further suspensions or injury in RD 1 that list should go from 15 to 6 pretty quickly with really only Lever & Hannan missing from best 22. There shouldn't be any excuses to start the year, we do have a tough draw to start the year however I think 4-2 really should be a minimum result through the first 6 rounds.

best 22 players injured for round 1:  Lever and Hannan.

Hannan was dropped a bit last year but I still reckon he is best 22.  with guys like Smith ready to come in for Hannan he is not a massive loss

The bigger issue for me is are we fit enough as a group/recovered from surgery and ready to go.  I am in the camp that thinks we will be sluggish for the first 6 rounds or so and have some disappointing losses

I share your concerns. We've had a pre-season that is not conducive to a strong start with all our surgeries and JLT injuries. Reckon we'll be 2-4 to start the season (we have to play Geelong & Sydney away and Richmond) and playing catch up after that.

Plus, in the JLT our impressive late 2018 brand of footy has been largely missing in the JLT.  Can we just be expected to flick on the switch for round 1? Hope so. 

Hopefully we can be 3-3 and on the fringes of the 8, then make a charge up the ladder to top 4.

Can someone explain what happened to Lever's prognosis being pushed out to another potential 15 weeks? Is it in the news or another thread somewhere? I thought he was due back around Round 5/6, with everything going swimmingly except for that minor recent scrape?

He's already has  2 Reco's,   on that same knee.

watts the Rush ?

But so what happened? Did the Yanks revise the prognosis after his sojourn there?

Not sure that anyone except the fansthought he would be back before then.  It works out to around 12 months from the date which is about right.  I am no expert but not surprised.

As an aside I spent some interesting time googling ACL operations and how they work a while back - quite fascinating

They've actually now discovered six different muscles unique to Jack Viney.

Might be a touch optimistic GCDee. While many are becoming available and/or passing tests,, I'm not sure we can carry more than a few players with niggles/little match practice into round 1 when the intensity will be high. We are going to need to finish the season pretty strong and hope for some luck and better player management with injuries.

Is there some kind of magic potion down at the Holden Centre regarding ACL injuries? 

Dunn suffered an ACL a month after Lever and he’s listed as 1-2 weeks away. From memory Goldsack recovered in less than 12 months also. 

Steaks apparently. Imported from South America I'm led to believe.

TBC- to be confirmed, no time frame yet on injury. Test- recovered or minor injury still able to train and will play subject to fitness test

    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
