Interesting article in the HUN today about Richmond. They are again starting the year with virtually a full list.

How the hell do they do it?

The steak knifes part of the May trade is certainly a list clogger of the highest order....think it might be time for everyones sake/health if he calls time on the career.

The Push should become the Shove... for his sake!

A real shame for the kid, I wonder why it seems players with concussion issues attract even more head knocks like there's a target on their skulls? Pure bad luck or something else....

Maybe that should be decided by KK and the Doctors not us.

Even so surely as mention he goes on the LIT so we can get in a player who might help us this season.

Agree 100%

We paid pratically nothing for KK trade wise and the MFC knew what they were potentially up against when we signed him up.  If KK had have shrugged off these concussion issues, then everyone here would be doing cart wheels.

Just because the punt we took hasn't paid off, then that doesn't mean the MFC should drop KK like a hot spud.  I think it's important that the club maintains support and treats injured players in a respectful manner, as they appear to be doing and personally, I that also extends to us as supporters.

Anyone here see how the Tigers train, and  that they have a near full list to choose from, have something to do with being injury free?

Or is it that they have actually two carefully managed lists of players?  For two separate parts of the season?

If KK was in this position last year we would be looking to add an additional player through the PS supplementary or mid season draft.

This year while we have 13 on the sidelines THIS week, that number only includes 3 or 4 who would ordinarily be in the first 22 and are expected to be back fully fit within 2 weeks or so.

While I hold no great hopes for KK given he hasn't recovered ( not just played) for nearly 12 months, it is a calculated gamble to keep him on the list...any selection to replace him would be unlikely to get a game this year, so why do it?  It is not like last year where Dunkley was slotted in to fill the huge number of gaps we had, and finished playing 5 games.

Similar story to Bennell,  if he comes good fantastic, if they don't then we have 2 gaps in the EOY draft already.

They don't actually train...just to avoid injury mind you...

They pick good players who are physically and psychologically strong.

Luck over the last few years is the reason why and no other, the tide will turn against like it does at all sporting clubs.

I don't think the tide is returning at Melbourne it ran out a decade ago and has yet to return.

That wasn't due to solely to injuries which we are talking about at the moment, also Richmond went thru a period of crap also in the not too distant past, people on this site need to get over the woe is me type of attitude.

We will nearly have our best 22 when we start the year. All other players required have a good base. We just dont hear much about other clubs injuries yet as they probably didnt hear about our bad pre-season last year. hell, neither did I.

I personally suspect without knowing stats, that most bad injuries happen late in the 2nd half of the year or in pre-season. Although we have niggles (according to the club, which cant be trusted to say anything illuminating except propa-gander in this situation), we will go in on-fire. Buy memberships!

I know the Blues and Dons have critical injuries and it sounds like the eagles have a couple of major players that were unable to finish the pre-season. Ben Brown is injured but because of the pay wall I couldnt see too much. KK and Bennell dont worry me now. Im putting on my rose-coloured glasses. I have taken up the 15-1 for the Dees to make the Grand final. And thats a bad omen.

There’s no reason to put him on the LT injury list until we have someone we’d like to place onto the main squad instead. 

Its bloody frustrating when you have a club like Richmond who just won the premiership continue to have the mostly blessed run of injuries that they’ve had for a while. Send some luck our way footy gods!!!! 😫

agree to keep supporting this young bloke.

he must be in a bad place but should be under no pressure to get back. Keep working on his own mental capability and the light fitness work to keep in good shape 

only if he and the doctors make the call to stop, then we can look to the top up process.

    CROWDOWN by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons open their 2020 season account with a "home" game against the Adelaide Crows at Casey Fields. It’s been more than 5 and half agonising months for the team and supporters who are eager to atone for the disappointing 2019 season which saw the Dees go from Preliminary Finalist to 2nd bottom on the ladder. The preseason campaign has been a hard slog with the addition of respected High Performance Manager Darren Burgess. We caught a glimpse of the gut busting sessions in the Melbourne

    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
