Only mention on Twitter is treatment to his ankle. Nothing else.

Edit: the Casey game day thread said he was done at half time. Pretty terrible thread title when most people don't read the Casey thread.

If you looked on the Casey demons thread no one knows what happened. Thought I would get all the discussion in one place.

Well if it's an ankle (in the current circumstances) that's good.

Further (hopefully) it's just minor ( read "nothing at all really") and they just took him off as a conservative precaution.

Jon Ralph (FWIW) tweeted that it's a rolled ankle and apparently "potentially puts his AFL return back a week".

Rolled is better news than broken. 🤞

season is already lost, no need to rush him back.

A week off can only be a good thing for his knee imo.

Agree. Relax. One more week off. 

Back in Queens Birthday 

Agree with the above to an extent, but FFS, can no a week go by when we actually get more players back than loose them to injury?

I know finals are pretty much a goner now, but it would be great to see us be in a position to put a team of reasonable strength out on the park to start building some good form, cohesion and systems for next season.  As much as I'd love to see one or two of the lesser names we have in the side right now take their game to the next level, I feel like the team as a whole is being held back by not being able to get a critical mass of quality players out on the ground at the same time to tip us over the edge from just hanging in games, compared to being truely compeditive.

I guess some setbacks are to be expected for players comming back from long term injuries, but this one seems to be somewhat unrelated to the original injury and just a further demonstration that we just can't handle a trick this season.

Latest rumour suggests his foot is to be surgical removed above the knee and replaced with a bionic toby greene kicking leg.

I used to love this dude as a kid. He was honestly the best mark but THE worst kick Ive seen at the club . Pull in a screamer and then regularly miss from close in direct in front.  Would put petracca to shame re how many misses hed conjure up from 20-30 metres. Funny in hindsight they still feel the golden years...even though we never even played finals. Hardeman, Wells, Alves, Biffen, Keenan, Bourke, Davis, Molloy, Tilbrook etc. The team is still clear in my mind.  Guess it was the age I was.

He went to the bulldogs and first game against us he kicked a bag from everywhere. I remember one went through from outside 60 m at the top of the posts. My Dad and I were there at the G spewing.

FCS you blokes. I keep coming to this thread hoping there is information on Lever and all I get is people wallowing in nostalgia.  Must be a thread for that somewhere else? Please.

I recall some of the pack marking but the goals were very sketchy so that might explain it Wells ty.

My most vivid memory as a kid was the last second chugging of a shortish stick..just before the siren and stomping the butt into the ground as it went off before the first bounce.

Sue this is critical stuff.  Surely this helps somewhat with understanding the culture that made us who we are today!?? And besides, it does involve the use of ankles 🙄

    PANTSED BY THE PIES by George on the Outer

    A 41 point loss to Collingwood, combined with yet another meagre output from the Melbourne forwards, saw the Demons pantsed by the Collingwood in the Queens Birthday match. For the nth week in a row, Melbourne failed to produce a score that would trouble most sides - it’s inaccuracy alone was again enough to seal the outcome. If that final score of 7.15 were 15.7, the game would have been very different. That sort of output was exactly a repeat of the previous week against Adelaide, when fo

    TURNAROUND by KC from Casey

    It is truly amazing what a difference eight days can make in the life and times of a football club. It was a little over a week ago that the Casey Demons side were literally crushed into submission by the Werribee Tigers at Avalon Airport Oval. The losing margin in that game was not huge but the way they struggled to produce and cohesion in their play was obvious for all to see.  On Sunday at Casey Fields as part of heritage week, the team wore the Springvale FC jumper and made its own turn

    TEN YEARS AFTER by Whispering Jack

    There are many who would argue that Melbourne’s current woes go back a full decade to their Queens Birthday engagement of 2009 when the Demons selected a young VCE student Jack Watts to make his debut on the MCG in front of what was expected to be the club’s biggest crowd for a game described as the club’s “grand final in June”. That was the way of the world for the Dean Bailey coached Demons. The critics were skeptical of Melbourne’s decision to put a wet behind the ears schoolboy (albeit

    TOP END HEADING SOUTH by George on the Outer

    The Demons headed north for their annual game in Darwin, but the disappointing outcome could only mean they are heading south with the all too familiar failings happening again. A Sam Weideman mark and kick for goal with only 30 seconds remaining in the match could have won it for the Demons, but the kick slid sideways and the team went down by two points.  Sam may have been devastated, but the fact that the team could only kick 1 goal 8 behinds in the final quarter lays the blame at the fe

    MAYDAY by KC from Casey

    There’s not very much that can be said of the lacklustre performance of the Casey Demons at Avalon Airfield Oval against the Werribee Tigers on Saturday other than that it was woeful. There were however, a few small rays of hope for Demon fans, the main one being the display of defender Steven May from injury and to a lesser extent, Kade Kolodjashnij’s return after two months recovering from the effects of concussion. May was in stellar form down back, taking intercept marks, disposing of t

    POINT OF NO RETURN by the Oracle

    Conventional wisdom says that a club reaches the point of no return in the AFL competition if it has won less than four matches at the mid point of the season.  What this means for Melbourne is that in order for it to remain in the race for a top-eight position, it must start winning games now. Moreover, It's not enough to win the next game but it must also start stringing wins together to make up for its deficit in both wins and percentage.  With so much at stake there will be no excu

    A REAL DOWNER by KC from Casey

    When Sam Weideman kicked his third goal at the midpoint of the second quarter of Casey’s game at Downer Oval , Point Gellibrand on Sunday, he put his team 26 points ahead of the goalless Seagulls. Buoyed by the return from injury of Weideman and a number of other AFL-listed Melbourne players including Jordan Lewis, Mitch Hannan, and Jay Kennedy Harris and an impressive start to Jake Lever’s second game on return from his ACL surgery, the Demons were seemingly on top of the world. Lewis and

    ANOTHER GIANT PROBLEM by George on the Outer

    On top of its injury problems Melbourne ran into an “in-form” GWS Giants at the MCG in a game which, apart from a final quarter junk-time spree served to highlight the club’s current problems. There’s a virtually non-existent forward line; a plethora of VFL standard players, who might be getting plenty of game experience but most will simply not be up to AFL standard; an inability to kick straight and an ability to waste simple opportunities so that they mustered up only one goal in the fir

    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,
