Aaron Nietschke Injures ACL Again

Recommended Posts

The club will extend his contract to give him the chance to prove himself. Nice gesture, hope he can come back. Will the club look at another  pre season player to train with us?

Shame for the kid.  Glad the club is getting behind him.  The training reports were very positive, so hopefully he can come back and show something.  If he and KK go on the LTI, does that allow us to top up with some additional rookies?

Horrible news for the kid. Best of luck to him for his recovery.

From Friday this was one of the reports:

AVB - Our most physical player. Bashed and crashed his way around, including bringing down the non-contact Neitschke. Love having him back. Generally very involved; a full year of him on the park will make us so much better, as we all saw during our 18 finals run. 

Hope that didn't cause it!!

Cruel, only thing worse would be him doing it in March. Sounds like teh club will get around him.

 

that places him on teh LTI list and as another poster mentioned KK not looking anywhere near playing footy again, potentially 2 spots up for grabs for Rookies?

Without making light of the terrible situation for the youngster, i'm now wondering if AVB's contact training in September 2018 caused our 2019 pre-season injury crisis... :blink: :laugh:

That was my report and I would be very surprised if it was what caused it. As I recall Neita got up straight away and continued playing...tackles aren't known to cause ACLs generally

It's hard to express my views without using expletives to describe Aaron's rotten luck.  Hope he comes back fit and strong, with the luck he deserves!!

My sons  ACL was as a result of a tackle! His knee took full force as his foot was firmly anchored on the ground!

Good luck young man!

This game can be cruel. Great the club will get behind him with an extension of contract. Do the hard yards again Neita, rehab hard and put your head down and learn as much as you can whilst you cant play. Reset and see you for 2021.

Rotten luck for the young fella. What a shame.  Pleased the club have will sign him for 2021. I suppose the only positive is when he makes it back in 2021 he will have a more mature body to be able to handle it. Treat him like a 20-21 year old new recruit

Let's hope Neita gets the support & treatment to encourage his recovery to a stellar career with Melbourne starting ASAP.

Having a tough run at it.

I am a bit philosophical and warm fussy about it.

The body reacts to what it needs. Perhaps his body some how knows it was not yet ready, so it broke. 

Another year out of the game and with plenty of gym work, his body will mature. With stronger muscles and bones, he will be better suited to the seniors.

Though he will lose the learning curve and be well behind in experience. 

Hoping he picks lots up in an intellectual way and can apply it when he returns.

I hope The Ox has an opportunity to reach out to him and support him.

 

Rotten luck, again.

Same one... ouch!  poor guy, hope he can come back.

 

Terrible news, terrible injury, how sad to lose an upcoming player like this young fella. I am not optimistic that he will play again - twice injured, same ACL, long road to recovery and a bumpy one, at that - so we must wish him a good recovery and hope that it is the best possible, and that the MFC support him all the way through. However, his playing days sadly seem to be over.

Actually,  it's not the same ACL.  It is the same leg, and the same type of knee injury. 

But its a totally different Anterior Cruciate Ligament.  It is but a hamstring graft which failed.  I hope there was nil other injuries to the surrounding tissues.

 

Lets hope the the new graft is better than this one, which has failed him.

    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
