Viney to miss a couple of weeks.

Jack Viney had scans yesterday. I believe he has avoided shoulder surgery, but will miss a couple weeks. Not ideal timing for Demons fans. But I guess it could have been worse

That makes yet another Casey player to stand up and be counted . Is it possible we could catch a break instead of yet more injuries?

No. If the quality ain't there it ain't there.

Why avoid surgery? Just give him surgery, get him right proper and prepare for 2020 opposed to trying to keep him on the park throughout a wasted season

Agreed.

It will also allow him to get his foot right too.

If he has season ending surgery, when he could just have it now, after a 1-5 start to the year I just won't know what to think. But can see it happening being a Melbourne supporter. 

Hopefully the fact that he's only missing a couple means there's nothing structurally that needs fixing.

He has been NQR all season. It will be like for like. Ordinary player replacing ordinary player.

Is Maynard the obvious replacement at this stage? He is the only one I can think of. I think Tracc should move to the midfield, along with Melksham, for the next couple of weeks.

Or Sparrow.

The standard he has been playing he won't be hard to replace. I don't think it matters who gets a go at doing the job. The reality is Viney is no longer reliable and on the park enough to not require an understudy or two. Another bad coaching decision to not have a plan B for him. It is about the only thing stopping Jones from getting dropped. I remember saying to someone a couple of years ago that I did not think he had a lot of footy in him because of the way he plays and his body not holding up. That said, his desire and determination will be hard to replace.

Good call. I'd forgotten him. Time to get the youth involved. What is James Jordan up to? Is he a chance to play a few games before the end of the season? I know he had an interrupted pre-season.

He was off for about 20 min after the knock in the last quarter ie about 16% making him available to play for a max 84% time.  But he played only 59% of that, having the equivalent of a full quarter off in the first 3.

Certainly looks like he was being nursed.   Playing him underdone just puts pressure on other players especially mids to cover his work load.  Very tiring for a midfield that lacks fitness.

Bring in someone who can at least play 80% game time.

Good time for a rest/surgery.

I still can't work out whether Viney took on Stack thinking he could run straight through him, or was completely oblivious to his presence. Either way it was extraordinarily poor football. 

I agree with other posters - if there is any thought that Viney could benefit from having surgery, just get it done. He has had little influence to date, so we will hardly be worse off getting games into a kid.

Melk was a turnover king on Weds night probbably as a result of more time in the middle.  Would rather he plays HF pushing high (wide) and/or off the wing where he theoretically has more time / space to execute.  One of our best kicks coming i50 also so wouldn't hurt.

Maynard's the obvious direct replacement as an insider but are we better off bringing in someone with a bit more outside speed and run going to HF if Tracc is playing as the insider?  Not sure there's anyone like that (in any decent form) at Casey

He definitely tried to take it on. 99% of players in the league would have side stepped it which was the smart thing to do and would have been beneficial for the team. Almost feel sometimes Viney is just out there to show how tough he is rather than actually play football and help his side win. 

We don’t need courageous acts that amount to nothing. We need match winners and that’s what a captain should do.

Yes, Viney's football IQ is limited to being tough and never taking a backward step. A very valuable attribute but with an obvious downside.

It's a split second decision.  If he didn't take him on half of D'land would be up in arms accusing him of squibbing it.

Would take a goer in the team any day over someone who blinks.

Hardly poor football.  Just part of the game.

Has Maynard been playing? Didn’t play last week and is not named this week either for Casey?

Personally, I’d bring Sparrow in, give the kid a few consecutive games and see how he goes. Misery continues, unfortunately Maynard isn’t the answer going forward. Maybe Jones back in the centre square now.

Maynard is the ultimate hack bomb forward kick guy. Very poor skills. I’d rather play Sparrow or another kid

Isn't that the ideal replacement for Jack? ☺

Maynard's skills inside aren't that bad.  He will probably run as well through there as chunk would at this point...possibly better.  Similar bombing also lol

He had a millisecond mate.

He didn't see him until the last split second as he did what most MFC players wouldn't, and that is keeping his eye totally on the ball.  Extremely poor football?  No, extremely poor commentary from you.

 

Viney is bloody tough considering he just got up and didn't even grimace.  I have whinged more about a biting my tongue.

To those calling for surgery now you’ve clearly never had an AC injury. They vary in scale.

If you don’t need surgery, you don’t do surgery.

Ummm... perhaps because he doesn't NEED to have surgery?  99% sure it's just the journo's phrasing, not because the MFC is trying to avoid surgery. 🙄

    GIANT HEADACHE by The Oracle

    It seems so long ago that Melbourne took an unchanged line up into a game on the MCG against the Greater Western Sydney Giants and cleaned them up to the tune of 45 points.  In truth, the event occurred literally half a season ago in the final home and away round of the 2018 season and marked the Demons’ return to the finals with more triumphs to come in the weeks ahead. Of course, back then, it was the Giants who were wracked with injuries as they stumbled into the finals series facing the

    LANDSLIDE by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons enjoyed the better of their first half against Port Melbourne on Saturday but fell away badly after half time to lose by 43 points. The Borough enjoyed the early break with the game’s opening two goals but the Demons took control to go out to an 8 point lead at quarter time, an advantage that it held for most of the second term until a late goal to the visitors clawed the lead back to a point.  The Casey ruck of Braydon Preuss and Liam Wale-Buxton were on top for most

    SHOULD HAVE ... COULD HAVE by George on the Outer

    West Coast finally put the nail in the Demons 2019 season coffin with a 16 point win, but it was a game that Melbourne should have, could have, but didn’t win. Once again woeful, truly woeful work in the forward line, both kicking for goal and the lazy, cheap efforts of some let the side down. A solitary goal in the final quarter and only 9 goals from 24+ scoring opportunities was the costly difference in the game. The selectors, once again, made a critical error in not selecting

    SCREAM by Whispering Jack

    The Norwegian Expressionist artist Edvard Munch painted a number of versions of his famous work “Scream” and, every time my mind goes back to last year’s Preliminary Final at Optus Stadium between Melbourne and the West Coast Eagles, each and every one of them reverberates through my mind as if my head is being pummeled by a sledgehammer.  When I think of that half time scoreboard from that match showing West Coast at 10.9.69 to Melbourne 0.6.6, I feel like the man standing by the railing,

    NOT GAWN IN 60 SECONDS by George on the Outer

    You might recall a regular segment that once featured on the MFC website entitled, “Gawn in 60 Seconds”, in which Maxy would ask the hard questions of his teammates. However, there was no harder question asked than the one asked collectively of the whole team in the last 60 seconds of Saturday’s game against the Gold Coast Suns.  It was either follow me and my example or the Demons’ season, already hanging flimsily by huuua thread, would be truly “Gorn”.  It was at that stage when thos

    BOILOVER by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons caused the boilover of the season to date when they took on and beat the undefeated ladder leaders Essendon VFL by 41 points at Windy Hill.  The stunning result which was achieved with a season low of eight AFL-listed players, will surely kickstart the Demons’ ailing season after they lost their last two matches as a result of some poor third quarter fade outs against quality opposition. Casey got off to a great start with a mid-air soccer volley goal from Jimmy Munro

    LITTLE RAY OF SUNSHINE by Whispering Jack

    There would be very few among us who would have thought realistically at the start of the season that by the time Melbourne’s Round 8 trip to the Gold Coast came around, the visitors would not only be languishing in 16th place on the ladder, but also be sitting a game behind their hosts. In fact, had the Suns managed to goal late in their opening game against the Saints which they lost by a mere point, the gap between the two sides would have been even wider. Such has been the humiliation o

    UNDERDOGS by KC from Casey

    Thanks to the large injury list at Melbourne, the Casey Demons went into their fifth round clash with Footscray VFL as the underdogs and despite a courageous showing up to half time after conceding the game’s first four goals, their third quarter fade out saw them fall short against quality opposition for the second time in a week. Casey went into the game with only 9 AFL listers after Declan Keilty was called up to make his debut when Tim Smith was forced to pull out of the Melbourne team

    IN THE PINK by George on The Outer

    A five point victory against the eternal nemesis in Hawthorn, didn’t put the Demons back in the black for the 2019 season ... but rather, it added a touch of pink to their fortunes, now showing some sign of life after an underwhelming start to the year. And pink was the most appropriate colour for the side and the supporters, given this game was the annual “Pink Ladies” match.  And none more so than this proud Demon fan who turned up to add his support to the cause and his team at the same

    EASIER SAID THAN DONE by The Oracle

    There is no way of getting around the fact that Melbourne is the disappointment team of the AFL competition and, because it came into the season as a big top four fancy and now sits stone motherless last with a 1-5 win-loss record, it is fast becoming a laughing stock.  The only way in which the Demons can restore any sense of pride, let alone its rapidly diminishing hopes of making the finals is for it to overcome Hawthorn on Saturday in the replay of last year’s preliminary final.

    POINT CRASH by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons went down by the narrowest of margins to a strong Richmond VFL combination in the Round 4 game at Casey Fields on Saturday after a rushed behind  to the Tigers in the game’s dying moments broke the deadlock. In a low scoring game, Casey took the early ascendency after conceding the first goal and held their lead for most of the first half going into the sheds at the main break with an 8 point lead. The Demons were led in defence by key position players, Oscar McDonald

    THE LAST POST by George on the Outer

    The Last Post sounded out in memory of the fallen around a packed MCG at the Anzac Eve match against Richmond. The silence of the crowd assembled was in tribute to those who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country. But the Last Post was also an appropriate symbol of the finals aspirations now gone for the Melbourne Football club, after a mere six rounds of the 2019 Season.   How far has this team fallen!  From a Preliminary final contestant barely six months ago, to cellar dwelle
