To be fair all their social media accounts show them training the house down. 

No wonder this club hasn't got any money. We have to rebuild this [censored]in' house, wherever it is, after every pre season.

thanks Saty and Kev for the great reports and insight...

when you are living the life of a retired hippie it’s hard to admit your one passion in life (apart from your wife).. is the Dees... the angst the hope the epiphanies the dread .. but we dare to dream.. Max stripped and training hard... stuff to dream on...

Good to see that Preuss has been working hard during the off season so far. This time last year there was a lot of talk about the respective roles of he and Max under the new 666 regime but in the end, he spent a lot of time at Casey and with our KPF’s falling down, it all unravelled. Could his fitness be the key to a renewal of hope for the set up we expected to do so well for the team 12 months ago?

Tom Sparrow was in the lead most of the time when running with a small group of four players (Toby Bedford, Oscar Baker and I think Kade Chandler or Jay Lockart).

Hopefully he gets a good run at it.  Got some hopes for this kid.

Couldn't get a decent pic of him, another who looks in really good nick

The one thing I was impressed with at training was that the first 3/4 was spent with ball in hand, meaning not one young guy needed any extra conditioning to start kicking the footy

Max, not just words. Captain unless he doesn't want it. Pruess following in the big footsteps. Spargo's body has changed as well which hopefully means we will see some other changes across the board. Will be interesting to see what shape May is on his return along with a few others.  

I love the smile on Tommy in Saty's pic above looks like he is enjoying being on the park.

Not a big squad a few must have finished early and some still away, I didn't see Harrison Petty.

Legend, thanks kev! Really appreciate the effort and info.

With Petty, he got pretty banged up as the year went on, had both concussion leg issues later in the year, so would think maybe the leg problems means he's potentially in rehab and left early or may have even been inside on a bike or something. Just a guess, but would make sense.

The most interesting thing about training apart from who's in rehab is which groups players are training with - backs, mids, forwards.

It will be very interesting to see which groups Jones, Petracca, Jordon, Hunt, Fritsch, Sparrow, Petty, C.Wagner, Lockhart, Smith are training with.

Surely Petracca trains with the midfield group all preseason

In what was has Spartacus’ body changed? Leaner, muscular, legs grown longer 😱?  Did he look “more athletic” or stronger?   Did you see him in the kicking drills? Longer? More penetration?

For a little bugger he had a reasonable debut season but seemed to have the second year blues. 

Hope he can gain some traction again.

Will be interesting to see what effect ( hopefully improvement in competitiveness and ball contesting due to a stronger body) that Charlie brings to the table.

One taking is sure is that if ha can get 20 possessions a game forward if Centre a bid spike in creativity and goal assists and goals will result. One thing young Charlie  has is a football brain  Di I hope he ups the ante and is able to use it much more in our hopefully dangerous forward line on 2020.

Yep, sometimes there is mythology with the new stuff due to teams trying to get an 'edge'. 

Bit like ice baths are now problematic...

Said it for 20+ years.

Training and injury management is about getting the basics right first.

 

In the last 3 years we have been so far from basics it aint funny.  Why worry about the 1 percenters, when you are going negative 40% by putting May, Joel Smith, Viney back on the park with clear sodt tissue injury in a dead rubber or a game-over situation.

Sorry, I'm confused. Do you think they made errors putting Smith, may and viney back on the park when injured? I wasn't sure where you stood in that.

And am I right in saying you support the club's decision to trade Frost? I'm not sure I agree. I mean he us so fast. And we really need fast defenders.

Can’t wait to see what Sparrow can do next year. He looks fit. 

Jordon looks like Oliver when he arrived at the mfc. Needs another press on maybe. 

Pruess been in the afl system for a while so hopefully he can build his endurance. 

Go Dees. Love this time of year!!

    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

    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
