DEBUNKED: Oliver shoulder surgery

Recommended Posts

ADMIN EDIT: This has been debunked. 

 Please take care when posting rumors. 

Apparently the young fella damaged his shoulder and has already had it operated on. 20 week rehab to follow.

Fingers crossed I’m getting a wind up...

He had both shoulders operated on in 2018, if he required further they would of had it done weeks ago. unless of course he has injured one again, but I am tipping jjj has been hoodwinked.

Was the surgery before the BnF? If it were, he would have his arm in a sling.

His arm wasn't in a sling at the BnF.  Seems to be a fair bit of doubt as to whether this is true.

20 weeks? Find that a bit hard to believe, unless he's had a car accident or something. They're not even training yet.

I suspect this has as much veracity as the old story about the cannibal who got home from the pub so late for tea that his missus gave him the cold shoulder.

Oliver has a history of shoulder surgery.  September 25, 2018:

Oliver 2018 shoulder surgery

"Clayton injured both his shoulders during the year and will require surgery... Oliver will not begin contact training until January at the earliest.   "He was unable to complete many contact drills at training in the last two months, so to perform the way that he did in that period is remarkable."

That was 12 months ago.  Last year he had the surgery after the bnf.  Could be the same this year.

Absolutely amazing that he played so well in 2018 with those injuries

And his performance in 2019 equally as amazing if the shoulders have again been an issue.

It is conceivable that he needed work again.   But would like to hear more than a rumour.

Two days before the BnF he also won the longest kick competition. 

If he has had surgery, it must be due to injuring the shoulder after the kicking comp and BnF. I smell a BS rumour though.

Hopefully your post sums up this topic - a bad joke.

I believe last off-season he had two shoulder reconstructions.  However, they needed to be done separately, which is why his recovery took the whole preseason.

There's every chance that he went in for a clean-up.  Very much doubt that he's had another reco without the club saying something; there's no way you can keep that secret.

Rumours of severe injuries are the worst type to even post online.

Why bother?

The club wouldn't have let him trounce around Europe with Trac and Salo if there was even a hint of a serious shoulder injury.

I'm going to lock this thread for the time being. No need to spread a rumour with nothing to back it up. I've PMed the OP for more information. At the very least I want to confirm that this doesn't just come from a friend of a friend of a friend. 

If this was a first time poster and not a long time poster then they would be immediately banned. 

I'll reopen this thread if more information comes to light. 

Unless this is a brand new injury (ie: last week) I can't believe this wouldn't have been acted upon before he went on vacation. 

Methinks the OP has been hoodwinked. A reminder to all to not post rumours especially if you can't verify the credibility of a source.

Screenshot from Clayton Oliver’s Instagram Story.  Video doesn’t show Clayton as he’s taking the video. Last shot of the scorecard most likely proves he didn’t just have surgery.  Rumour Debunked.

A young man with a few hours to spare one afternoon figures that if he hurries and plays very fast, he can get in nine holes before he has to head home. As he is about to tee off, an old gentleman shuffles onto the tee and asks if he can join him. Although worried this will slow him up, the younger man says, “Of course.”

To his surprise, the old man plays quickly. He doesn’t hit the ball very far, but it goes straight. Furthermore, the old man moves along without wasting any time.

When they reach the 9th fairway, the young man is facing a tough shot. A large pine tree sits in front of his ball, directly between it and the green.

After several minutes pondering how to hit the shot, the old man says, “You know, when I was your age, I’d hit the ball right over that tree.”

With the challenge before him, the young man swings hard, hits the ball, watches it fly into the branches, rattle around, and land with a thud a foot from where it had started.

“Of course,” says the old man, “when I was your age, that tree was only three feet tall.”

    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

    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

    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
