Injury List - Season 2019

Recommended Posts

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. 

I don’t think a player like ANB can go backwards. The ones who make it on guts and work ethic rarely do.

He will never have the flair of Petracca but he will play his role and be an important cog in the chaotic footy we play.

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

More likely from Texas or where Cox came from!

Not sure if it's been mentioned elsewhere, but Jake Lever is on AFL Tonight 700pm.

This tweet paints one picture whilst the article paints another.

Based on the tweet it sounds like he's in consideration for Round 2 or at the latest Round 4. The article has him traveling to Sydney with the chance of an amputation.

According to Ben Guthrie. 

Absolute [censored] and disgraceful from our medical team or cosching staff to leave him out there to aggregate it even more.

Yeh for all the good work they've done, that sure was a howler of a mistake Vs Brisbane at Casey.

A) Going in with a smaller squad. (Risk)

B) Keeping an injured player out there when there was absolutely no need. (Mind boggling).

Anyone who was at the game and saw him trying to do run throughs on the boundary line either before or after half time would've put Joel Smith's cue in the rack then and there considering it was a practice match. Play 1 man short if they must. Richmond did it in the JLT a couple of years ago.

I couldn't believe it when I saw him hobbling to the goal square just before the start of the last qtr. It wasn't exactly a home and away game when you're down to 1 fit bloke on the bench and you have to trot the least injured player out there.

It was a mistake to keep playing Joel, although he kept kicking goals. This thread is going to go ballistic with DLers outrage.

And they should be outraged Damo. As STMJ mentioned above, if we played with a normal sized squad it would've been a non issue. That alone lead to a number of players playing more game time than they were expected to ( I was told this by a player). 

Regardless,  the fact they kept him out there hobbling is one of the more inept decisions team management have made for quite a while . Mind boggling 

He was our best performaning forward preseason, now gone for at least a quarter of the season .

Sackable offence. Bloody ludicrous. JLT means nothing. I don't care if we played with 10 players, i want my players healthy for round 1. Even if it takes them a few weeks to get going.

Bad judgement and I wonder if any medical advice was sought in JLT 2 on Joel at Casey.

Not sure we have a forward still available other than Pruess assuming Spargo is a real certainty now (Was with me anyway).

Surely Fritsch must go forward to provide a skill and marking contest.

Bad news on Vanders also exacerbates this news!

What an absolute [censored]! WTF did he keep Son of Shaun out there when clearly he was injured? Can't wait to see Misson GTFO.

On a more positive note, KK expected to play VFL this week.  Very happy with that one, at least.

This,  alongside allowing  Viney to play so early last year,  were two of the worst decisions I can remember re injury management. Both should have and so easily could have been avoided. I want to hear him respond to questions about this...I want to hold him to account as we would anyone else in the club.

Round 1 and once again we have a long injury list.

I wouldn't say it's long, and those on there will be back in short time (apart from Hannan and Lever).

Harmes, Viney, Jones and KK are all off that list now, with three playing this week and KK returning in the VFL.  It sounds like Preuss was with the main group as well, not with the rehab group, so you would suggest he is a chance for either AFL or VFL selection this week too.  Hannan, AVB, JKH and Joel Smith are three of the mid size injuries that come to mind, along with Jake Lever.   

So, in essence, I don't think it's that long at all, we've just had a few ups and downs with it in the last month.

Wish Dean Kent was still on our list, i know he was injury prone, but he could play and is exactly what we need right now, a goal kicking small fwd. God help us if Tmac or weid get injured.

We have about eight blokes who are nowhere near ready for senior football, so to have another ten on the injury list leaves us with little more than the bare minimum to pick from this week. Some of our list management and player management decisions in the past 12-18 months are mind boggling.

    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

    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
