Petracca training incident

Recommended Posts

It probably helps in increasing lung capacity and help with the players being able to run out games better which is something we need a lot of help with.

The club should do some Mongolian throat singing together to increase their lung capacity. 😂

At least it shows that they are still working to fast track performance, through breath hold/lactic acid type exercises.  It may have been a shift up from HIIT type training, to give some variation.  I dont imagine that they would be doing this every week.

2 other points:  Trac was obviously pushing himself, (good thing).  Trac was pulled out safely in an appropriately monitored exercise (also a good thing).

It is just that we are travelling so badly that everything is viewed though the ‘clown school football club lens.  Its a hard job not to....

You mob are clowns. Half of you have no idea what the benefits of this training are and the other half are too ignorant to care. 

Blackouts like this can be common for people who have taken it too far like Trac. 

If we 5-1 in the black we’d be applauding him for pushing himself that little bit further. 

Peanuts. 

Hooray......at last a comment with some sense!

If they were doing this all of last year, which may have been the case, we would be applauding the players, fitness staff & their alternative methods.

Jesus this club is [censored] thick.

Heat training in preseason. (short term benefits only, if at all)

Sleep deprivation military camps. (evidence says you should do the complete opposite)

Brick in bag smash head exercise while sleep deprived. (Surprisingly not good at all)

Drowning excerices leading up to round 7.(New low. Clap. [censored] clap.)

Apart from anything else, this thread just shows how out of touch many here are with the realities of professional sport.

Kudos to him for the donation, sorry for the loss.

Cheers Cards - it happened over 15 years ago now so I'm fairly well adjusted - although, I have to be honest, while I grew up with my step-brother, the pain hasn't been as acute as it has for his full brother - or, I imagine, if it had been my own genetic brother who had perished. 

I delivered the eulogy at his funeral - at around the age of twenty - and for the first time recognised that I was coming to know less and less about the world as I aged, contrary to expectations. Affairs weren't getting blacker but more grey. My MFC experience has been the same.

Seriously wtf!

It's like the entire club is trying to force a square plug into a round hole. Don't worry about just going from A to B, when we can visit X Y & Z along the way.

These guys do know that we're meant to be playing footy right?

Now that i think about it thought it makes sense, given that Goody's game plan is sinking (or is that sunk?).

 

Sunk. For many reasons.

Sounds like he may have had latent hypoxia. Being an ex-navy diver, I can tell you there’s no benefit to this sort of exercise for professional sports players. It was used more so to put trainees under stress.

I agree completely, military style training for any type of athlete is just pure garbage.

Holding your breath out of water can also achieve hypoxia. What’s the benefit of doing it under water?

This season is a tragic chain of diabolical events. 

How about we learn to play a decent game plan and spend less time walking with balls underwater. 

If we happen to pull off a surprise win in a heavy downpour perhaps this will have contributed. 🙄

Could be a tactic a bit like @Ethan Tremblaycomment that in the navy they used it to test trainees.

So maybe it was more of a psychological thing to take players out of their comfort zones and be ok to take risks and not play safe.

 

Also, can we stop with all the snide remarks.  The guy is working hard.  This could have been serious.

Go one better and get this mob for their throat singing and old school fighting lyrics...

    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.

    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
