I hope he comes right and we have a valuable player but to be frank, we got sold bull [censored]. 

That’s what we were told. I don’t think it was BS (which implies they lied, has an implication of malice to it), just that they got it wrong. Diagnoses like this are all an on balance of probabilities type thing rather than definitive, so it can happen.

I fear that's it as an AFL career for KK...much more important things in life really

He we have another case, imho,  of our medicos failing in the Due diligence arena. They alone weren't the problem though as we just seem to want to trade for or draft players that "hopefully might come good "

NQR is just an ongoing quality about Melbourne. This needs to come to an end

Good luck Kade

Time to retire KK

and time for the MFC to get smarter with recruitment 

We have had so many “cast offs” over the years. I know a few will get through, but our record is pretty ordinary

I am not sure whether the Melbourne medical staff were remiss here but I certainly agree with the sentiments in the last two sentences. NQR sums up a long history of a lot of Melbourne's operations- from recruiting to simple things like administration and membership. My own personal experience was trying to get to an MFC lunchon matchday and being confronted with the bouncers who told me I couldn't enter the area where the lunch was held I eventually talked my way in because I didn't want to waste an average to good feed but soon retreated to the sanctuary of the Bullring in the MCC as I wasn't made to feel that welcome. I could elaborate on any number of administrative incompetencies but it serves no real purpose as they are now past history. I also think Peter Jackson did a magnificent job in cleaning up a dreadful mess and just hope it doesn't relapse. At times it feels like being in a third world country.

I did read an article on the Brisbane Bears which praised their medical team as contributing to their lack of injuries, objectively the same could not be said for us. It certainly is one aspect of our operations that bears close scrutiny.

Nup needs to RETIRE!

Not worth the risk of sustaining Life Long injuries

Give it away Son!!

To me and it is only my opinion but he appears to have that washed out look that I often saw with friends after a very heavy night out when we were young. I hope for his sake and the MFC that the medico's get it sorted before he has long term effects. Good luck Kade.

Wow surprised by the number of people writing him off. Had one season at the club. States in the video that he is starting to get back into running and looking forward to next year.

I remember when Brayshaw was in a similar position and everyone on here was quick to make their own assessment that he should just retire. Now look where gus is at. Finished third in the brownlow last year...

Give the kid a chance? I don't know him personally so I can't judge the situation. But as a dees fan I'll support him with whatever he chooses and currently it seems he wants to try and play football next year.

Might be wrong as I've mostly skimmed posts in this thread, but I feel like people here are more concerned for his wellbeing, rather than writing him off as such.

I hope he makes the best decision for him and if that means having another crack then do it or retiring then good on him,  as we have learnt in the last couple days, there are things far more important than footy.

I have a son who played local senior footy and badly injured his same knee twice.Two major knee operations later I had one bit of advice for him.

Think about your long term future and even though you love it , there are other things which you need to consider.

He didn't play this year

We are Talking knees , to  my way of thinking Concussions are in another more serious level again.

I would hate to see KK get any more head knocks concussion related injuries. I really would hate that.

OK maybe the number of people is fewer then I thought you're right but just read a few posts like ''needs to RETIRE' or 'time to retire'. If it was written more like 'I hope he is really considering his future and health as I am concerned for the young lad long term' maybe I'd understand more.

Totally agree. My best mate had two knee reco's and had to finish his senior footy days early as he worked a trade and had a young family. Of course its important to consider your future especially with serious injuries such as this. It's an area we're still learning about and the long term effects are definitely of concern.

All I am saying is that we respect KK's decision whatever it is and if it means him continuing his footy then back him in like we did with Brayshaw. If its too difficult for him to come back then absolutely consider finishing up. Retirement is an option but doesn't seem like he is there just yet.

    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

    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
