Cheers.

Thanks again Saty.

Any players looking noticeably different other than Preuss?  (bulked up or slimmed down)

Rehab can mean anything. Lever seemed to be in rehab all last year and the year before.... and then I was upset when he played in the middle of rehab!

For May, KK AVB Joel Smith, Weid, Petty and Nev to be in rehab right now after (at least) 70 days off really does not make me believe the glass is half full, Someone set set me straight, surely Im wrong!

I hope Saty is right with his discussion with Nev and May, but it doesn't sound to good if they are still wearing the yellow vests.

Long Pre season though, no need to break them at the start of Nov.

Probably just not at the fitness base of those who have had no post-season issues.  No point having them go hammer and tongs from day one if they don't have a solid base. 

Very, very early days for Nev and May anyways - don't think they're expected back at training for sometime.

It is the contact work, they introduce them gradually to it, when you have been out you need the rehab

Clarry 'accidentally' flattened someone today in a drill, but they bounced straight up   couldn't tell who it was because of bib

Whole squad is not back for another week an a half, so the rehabbers can use this time to be cherry ripe to join it

I stood next to Joel Smith, in great nick doesn't  cover it

Will post some pics either tonight or tomorrow

Thanks for the reports Saty.

One thing I've been wondering about is our drop off in skills this year.

It seemed like from the reports pre season last year compared to previous years that maybe there wasn't the level of ball work combined with hard running etc.

Do you think the skill work was at the same level last year as there was in the previous couple?

I remember how people remarked that after Roos took over that a lot of the fitness stuff included ball usage and match simulation.

Maybe I'm barking up the wrong tree from interstate.

Agree to some extent. You have to be concerned about anyone on the long term injury or rehab list (whatever rehab means). 

However, it is only November. And we know nothing of the true state of recovery other than training observers who can see how fit they are, how they run and move. 

The question is when will they be right or best guess and when they are right will they be not only back in training but able to build up to full training before next season. You don't want to take risks but at the same time you don't want to have guys back for the start of the season well underdone. The long termers you have to worry about their futures at the club but we also need the young guys like Weed and Petty playing consistently and at full strength.  Our depth is not good so lets hope it is not an issue again next season. 

To some extent the status and progress of our injured players will be a measure of Burgess and our medical staff.

Football training is such a chaotic and unpredictable activity with the movements and stresses on the body you'd be mad to include anyone with even the slightest niggle in to ball work in early November. The benefit just isn't worth the risk. 

From that list Weid and Nev had surgeries, AVB and KK are dealing with long term issues. I'd like to see May, Petty and Joel Smith back in full training sooner rather than later but let's wait until the main group is back before being too concerned.

The thing that undid us last year was the numbers in rehab all the way through until the start of the season (and beyond). A few guys on light duties in November isn't the same thing.

Both are not due to start official training yet...so I wouldn't be concerned at all.

Pre season is just that

Been watching training for 10 years

Seen players turn up fit, unfit, ripped and overweight

Seen great skills, abysmal skills, horrible drills, innovations that worked and others that didn't 

Seen different approaches by different coaches

Every year towards the end pre season everything and everybody seems ready to go, this has not been the case

The track watchers report what we see, no idea, like everybody, what will happen when the games start

What's up with KK? Is it still the concussion? Or another injury?

A bit worrying for the boy if it's still concussion related. I'm worried for his health.

Like admitting to having watched the Footy Show and pretending it was only for the pictures, it pains me to poach from Stuie's self-constructed simpleton temple that is Melbourne Demon News facebook page, but apparently Burgess was was on SEN and said the following, according to a Stuie acolyte:  

- 90%/10% on ‘footballing‘ sessions v running sessions over the preseason for the Dees. 

- Seniors return Monday week: 4 sessions per week + weights and gym;

- All MFC staff are cognisant of the abilities of first to fourth year players, expectations need to be managed as well as harnessing doubt that younger players may have about their abilities;

- Tracking very well from a preparation point of view with only two players expecting a delayed start (no names given).

Nah, he's fine, like other rehabbers, just putting the work in, just wants a bit of luck with injury, same with Joel Smith

I think rehab is a bit of a misnomer.  It's not necessarily the players who are recovering or rehabbing.  It's the players on modified programs that prevent them from taking part in the main drills.  There are any number of reasons for that sort of thing.

    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
