cornes not falling for it again, sounds like us last year and he still had us finishing 1st, it’s funny all the media saying we can’t use it as an excuse yet bombers are already getting a free pass for there injuries, so if they fail it will be yea they had lots of injuries in pre season blah blah

Conspiracy theory!! We made no excuses for our season because of injuries & then it comes out after...Bombers who have been hammered for so many issues...decide to get on front foot early...who knows ...they have a larger membership than us & maybe won’t be impacted so much ?

I think Wrecker is saying that Jones isn't in our best 22.....which is obvious if everyone is fit.

It wasn't one of my better posts. I was trying to say the injury list / rehab group isn't as concerning as last year. Not just that the numbers are less but the importance of the players to our list missing sessions isn't the same either.

Agree with the posters saying Tomlinson and AVB are in our best 22.

Weid needs to prove himself this year. I bumped into him grandfinal night and he said his hips which have troubled him are "cherry ripe". He also looks broader and bigger in the training photos. I'm not sold but the stage is set for him to prove me wrong this season.

Good post either way Wrecker.....

For me however, there is still a question mark over Tomlinson. Sure based upon game time with GWS, size, skill level , physicality  etc, he ticks the boxes......but as we've seen time & time again, different club - different game plan (if we have one this year), his role within the team, respect from coaches & players etc.....time will tell.

He had elite players around him at GWS like Whitfield, Green, Coniglio, Taranto, Kelly, Z Williams, Kennedy & Hill, just to name a few & all of these players are quick which buys time & options.

He may have to work a bit harder at Melbourne with our lack of speed.

I know speed isn't everything but again, time will tell.

I'd have AVB & Weid any day.

On Tomlinson I think predictability of ball movement is the key to his importance.

His role is to run up and down the wing that  we are not kicking too. He’ll block opposition switches and fill holes in our backline.

I loved Frost but he was unpredictable with ball in hand which would have been a nightmare for Tomlinson and why the dees let him go.

Injury notes from the media:-

• Jake Lever (ankle), Braydon Preuss (shoulder) and Sam Weideman (hips) have had post-season surgery 

• Adam Tomlinson (calf) and Charlie Spargo (ankle) had minor setbacks last week as they begin their program

Injury notes track watchers:-

• Aaron VandenBerg, Austin Bradtke and Harrison Petty - rehabbers increasing their work load

• Oskar Baker and Mitch Hannan with Tomlinson rehabbers walking laps 

• Joel Smith appears to be on his own programme doing light duties 

• Neville Jetta, Kade Chandler, Lever and Weideman also on light duties

• Clayton Oliver trained on Friday with his left shoulder heavily strapped and left training early again

• Kade Kolodjashnij collided with Matty Hore at training and went off early favouring his right arm

• despite those reports from earlier in the week Steven May trained on Friday in no apparent discomfort 

From the above as far as I can tell:

Lever - full training

Preuss - full training

Weideman - full training

Tomlinson - rehab, light jogging

Spargo - moon boot

AVB - full training modified for load

Bradtke - full training except for last Friday where he did little.  Load management??

Petty - out of rehab but load management.  Only played one of two match sims on Friday

Baker - rehab, light jogging

Hannan - rehab, 75% running

JSmith - full training

Jetta - full training

Chandler - full training but missed Wednesday.  Full training Friday

Oliver - full training

KK - 75% running

Jones - 75% running

TMac - Full training until Friday.  Watched training

Bennell - rehab, light jogging

Really unfortunate for the young fella. Nice to know they've committed to keep him on for another year. And I guess if it was going to happen now is better than in February again, gives him a better chance at 2021.

Silver lining for the team is the chance to add an injury replacement before March.

Bad luck Aaron - frustrating to say the least but he can take heart from Maxy - the two recos didn’t stop him from being a multiple AA.

    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

    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
