Not the best news but not the worst, I suppose  surgery was always going to be the result with persist swelling. Question is will they be able to manage him well enough to prevent the swelling from becoming a regular issue.

Ben has obviously been training in some discomfort for a couple of months now going on the amount of tape wrapped around his knee.

Why wasn't a call made earlier to explore the knee in greater detail?

[censored] poor planning and injury forecasting from the club, should have been onto it alot earlier than this week.

Surely there was a touch point plan in place that if Ben was training in discomfort after the new year it he would have a clean up.

Would have been wise to explore the knee if it was still flairing up after the first week back?

wasted a month for no good reason.

Won't see him till around match day 6-8 everything going to plan.

Won't hold my breath.

WFA No training didn't start till JAN 5/6 

You are assuming OLD times 2020 went a month longer and only 4 years and under ( and any others that wanted to) started in late 2020 and Browny acc. To reports was not on the track till Jan.

So your argument time wise sort of breaks down.

Yes it's not ideal but this injury seems reliably and professionally approached with a sensible as possible outcome.

Will also be a good test for Tommy Mac Jacko and Weid early on.

Now all the forwards know the Heat is on and serious competition will be the norm from now on!

None of the track reports I read noted that he was “obviously” in discomfort. And I’m not sure what injury “forecasting” is. There’s no way to predict when a player will get injured. Do you mean ongoing monitoring of the knee given his history?

We’ve got the best in the business in Burgess leading the fitness and medical team. He got our full list fit and firing last year after the shambles that was 2019 so I think he deserves a bit more faith. From all accounts BB was training well and other than the bandage on the knee was showing no ill effects at all.

I think we all need to take a chill pill and let the medical team do their thing. Much better to get this treated now than after the season had started.

But that does not fit into the 'club mismanages injuries and we got a dud' narrative all the Chicken Littles are running with. You would think some on here prefer the club to fail.

I'm pretty sure everything that's been said about his knee mentions he was not in pain.

Interesting, gives a bit of perspective. Maybe it's not as debilitating as some here have thought...

Sounds to me like we decided to take the really cautious and deliberate approach and fix it early instead of trying to manage it throughout the year.

Funny that.

Seeing some of the self proclaimed doctors on here, they've already ruled him out for the year?

Fairy normal right to have major knee surgery (last year) and have lingering issues soon after...

As usual the sky hasn't fallen in and it's not strawberry fields. It's somewhere in the middle.

We'll have a better idea where he is at come round four.  In the meantime Jackson, the Weed and possibly TMac need to cover for BB.

Exactly right. Nearly all major knee injuries / operations often result in minor ongoing issues, especially for athletes.

I am happy the club jumped on the swelling as soon as it became an issue. Better to nip it in the bud early and have him play the majority of the season / his career pain free.

Luckily, for the usual suspects, they've still got Viney to fret over.

Ah, you mean the 1967 amendment regarding the constitutional position of Indigenous Australians... how does that work? ?

BDA no pills need to be taken here perfectly chilled, Ben was obviously playing in pain last year with his output and season ending before the break right? So there might have been a risk of it flairing up in a game situation right?

I'm sure the MFC we're all over it they might have missed something Norf's Docs might not be as thorough as ours.

Did Ben get anything explored within the knee with Norf? Did he have any surgery or just let it heal naturally?

Just some of the questions i would like to be answered. 

Injury Forecasting is a new buzz word in NBA which covers injury prevention, monitoring, recovery and planning  might be ahead of schedule with my terminology.

Just Frustrated would like all our players training together with no issues. Nothing's perfect BDA.

Some of the "doctors" on here should stick to team selection or AFL rulesto comment.

Actually  come to think of it they are Sort of sh.....se at them also!!!

Norf done good.

Why he didn’t go through the Richmond medical team is beyond me.

Keeps feeding the negative ones who not only are a half glass empty but a QUARTER glass all the time.

They are like Trump need to create chaos and trouble so they can look good "solving all the dramas" at the Club. But of course they don't because they don't use facts and information provided. Eg saying Ben Brown should have declared this injury in the first month  ( before Christmas )  BB and most seniors started training on Jan 6 th. Others only turned up early prior to Christmas break as voluntary.  
But not many have realised and allowed for the different times this year and last fir season ending later and later start for all ages o  the lists.  But don't let these facts  get in the way of the Injury story as the Club looks worse if you don't!!

    THE ICING ON THE QUAKE by Whispering Jack

    It’s not Christmas yet but if the Melbourne wins its last game of the 2021 season, then many of its fans will be celebrating early. There already are some parts of our town where the pending festivity is preordained. Houses are decked out with red and blue banners and streamers, some of which appeared as early as last Saturday week, on the morning after the Demons’ magnificent 83-point crushing of Geelong in their preliminary final at Optus Stadium. While it’s great to see the numbers of lo

    CAT SKINNING by George On The Outer

    When they defeated the Geelong Cats in the 2021 AFL Preliminary Final on Friday night in Perth, Melbourne proved that there is more than one way to skin those cats.  They did it in the ruck and in the middle, they did it in the forward line, they did it in defence and around the ground, but importantly, each and every player a Demon guernsey spent his night at Optus Stadium skinning an opponent. Following the after-the-siren win against Geelong in Round 23, there was an expectation of

    THE POINTY END by The Oracle

    The AFL’s two oldest clubs, Melbourne and Geelong, face off on Friday evening in a sudden death Preliminary Final. It’s a game that promises plenty in terms of fascination and intrigue as a result of the rivalry that’s been building between the teams over recent encounters that have been tight struggles which have gone to the wire with two of them decided by after-the-siren goals. The added touch of mystery attached to this week’s meeting comes by virtue of the fact that it’s going to take

    THE VFL YEAR THAT NEVER WAS by KC from Casey

    The rising case numbers and the continuing lockdowns in Victoria and NSW spelled doom for the 2021 VFL season which went through a slow, painful demise before its recent official cancellation. After weeks of indecision, the AFL decided to pull the plug on the season with the 10-0 Bulldogs recognised as minor premier, but without a premiership cup and without awarding the J.J. Liston Medal for the best and fairest VFL player. It was somewhat fortuitous for the integrity of the competition t

    TAMING THE LIONS by George On The Outer

    With nine finals debutants in the side, the Melbourne Football Club had a daunting assignment ahead of it in the First Qualifying Final — to overcome the competition’s highest scoring side, the Brisbane Lions. In the end, the Demons accomplished the task by putting the bite on their opponents on their way to taming the Lions and recording a 33 point win that propelled them into one the two Preliminary Finals of 2021.   It was one of those debutants, Luke Jackson, who put the bite in more

    RETURN TO NEVERLAND by Whispering Jack

    The greatest Demon A HIGHWAY OF DEMONS by Whispering Jack CHAPTER SIXTEEN - RETURN TO NEVERLAND  I have a six year old grandson who recently took up the family tradition of following the Demons. He had his first taste of the game a few years ago when he went to the “G” with his parents to watch the 107-point massacre of Carlton and he went to another game in the following season which was also a W for the Dees. But his appetite for the club has grown exponentially this year and wh

    METAMORPHOSIS by Whispering Jack

    I’ve always believed that when the home and away matches come to an end, the football season takes on a completely different shape and character. During the regular season, each team’s goals progress as the weeks pass and if you’re good enough to survive and make the grade, the situation changes. The comparison can be made with the life cycle of a butterfly going through stages from egg to larva to caterpillar, cocoon and in the end to a bright and colourful creature that emerges from darkness i

    STEALING THE CATS’ CREAM by George On The Outer

    They were leading by 44 points well into the third quarter of a game to decide the minor premier, having kicked nine unanswered goals. The Cats were about to lap up their bowl of cream, dreaming of next week but the Demons led by Max Gawn had other ideas. In a stunning finish, they stole the game from under them to claim the plaudits as best team and top of ladder position. In a remarkable game, it all came down to Max having to kick the winning goal after the final siren, something which s

    SKIN THE CATS by Whispering Jack

    The task ahead for the Demons as they wend their way down the Princes Freeway to Geelong on Saturday night will be to skin the Cats. For them to come away with the points from this game would mark an historic occasion for the club as it will finish on top of the ladder for the first time since its last premiership year, 1964. And it was in that year, that a trip to Corio Bay to meet the reigning premiers in Round 12, was one of the catalysts for Melbourne’s surge to the flag. It was a top o

    REACH FOR THE STARS by George on the Outer

    It was a game of great significance for the Melbourne Football Club. A win would see them keep top spot on the ladder with one round remaining. To achieve top place in the Round for Reach when we are all inspired to “Be Like Jim” and reach for the stars was a great way of honouring one of our heroes. All the better given that it was done by way of an emphatic 41 point win against Adelaide! It is worth remembering that, but for the umpiring mistake in the previous encounter with the Crows, t

    TICKETS PLEASE by The Oracle

    A lot of water has passed under Princes Bridge in the five years since Melbourne last met Adelaide on the MCG. The Crows were riding high at the time while the Demons were mid-table and scrambling for a win to stay in the race for the finals. The 30,000 fans who had tickets to the game were thoroughly entertained by a close, high scoring affair that ended in tears for fans of the home team. Not even an eight-goal second term could help them.   Times have changed.    In the fi

    ELECTRIFYING by George On The Outer

    What more can they throw at the Demons of 2021? Covid restrictions, hubs, aircraft circling between airports before landing for games and now a match stopped for 30 minutes to give a flagging opponent its second wind? To date, none of those distractions has swayed the team from their winning objectives. The game against West Coast in Perth can be marked on their report card as another positive outcome after yet another test. There was much at stake for both sides.  Melbourne had t
