My feeling on it was club knew about the swelling from the get go. They are a professional spring club, anyone that thinks they knew nothing about it or didn't get all the information need to get their heads checked.

Club knew he had it last year, instead of sending him in for surgery he possibility may not of needed, as it could have healed naturally over the break, they tested it. Got him training and started ramping it up, oh look it's happen again let's send him to our knee specialist and get best course of action.

 

But I guess in doing that, the professional sporting club, that have numerous people with all sorts of degrees, don't know anything they are doing.blockquote widgetlockquote widget

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!

 

Hi 58er agree with you assessments, I am by no means an expert, don't claim to be, i also don't usually comment on injurys of this nature. 

Ben is a new player to the club with an existing injury, it's why I'm so intrigued as to his progress.

So i see Ben didn't start with the 1-4 year players in December, my bad. I reckon i heard Adam Ramsnauskas on SEN saying Ben had been training from November onwards. Should have double checked this information.

I stand corrected 58er.

Wouldn't it be Norf responsibility to get Ben the best possible Medical advice on his knee while he was still contracted to them?

Or was the relationship between the club and player that strained that Ben or Club didn't follow up with the correct procedures.

Would be interesting to find out.

Tmac will have a ripping year.

Possibly the players were given their own programs to do by Burgo for the Jan start WFA so in part we are both correct but reckon he was in Tas home doing his private prep so no CluB contact available to Big Ben then.
Let's hope comes back as the real McCoy with 50 goals this season.

hopefully the club stops coughing up first round picks but I'm not as negative as others. It just means that Tom McDonald must get back to 2018 form.  If he does, we will do well, if not... it's another 9-12 season with no improvement. unless we sack Goodwin early.

Ben Brown has a sore knee and therefore we need to look at axing Goodwin if TMac doesn’t kick a million goals. FMD! Do you ever read what rubbish you write before you hit send?

I'm pretty sure it will all be Burgos fault entirely.

On a brighter note Ben Brown is the father of a new baby girl. I saw the announcement on Instagram and, after congratulating the new parents,  made a plea that he doesn't sit her on his knee for the next few weeks.

 

He timed that perfectly.

Lucky we didn't trade Tommy Mac is all I'll say.

Defenders will be licking their lips now seeing McDonald as your main key forward.

Have hope. A fitter Tommy can get back to 2018 form. Optimistic I know but what else can we do?

Said this before pre Brown and Weideman injury that I felt we still lacked depth in our forward department and was amazed we had not invited a Jackson Callow or Kaine Baldwin as a train on instead of Kobe Farmer and Deakyn Smith. Two big strong key forwards who are physically ready to go.

Callow invited to train with Hawthorn as of last week.

12 weeks, then getting back match fit and stress fractures sometimes are prolonged if rushed

so you'd say the chances of the Weed having a meaningful impact on the season are low

    DEES GIVE DOGS A BONE by George On The Outer

    First place versus second on the ladder promised to be a precursor to what can be expected in the coming finals race.  However, it was the Demons who faltered and gave the Bulldogs a bone to feed their hunger just weeks out from the end of the season. The win also sent the Dogs to the top of the ladder, a position they are unlikely to cede in the coming weeks, given their fixture. While Melbourne may now struggle to keep a spot in the top four with its draw and will likely depend on the res

    THE WORM WILL TURN by The Oracle

    When I was asked to preview this game, I wasn’t sure whether it was going to be played in Darwin, on the Gold Coast or the MCG. I had no idea as to the identity of Melbourne’s opponent. This would have made for one hell of an interesting match preview so I’m glad that the AFL managed to reorganize its fixture to enable a game … any game at all … to proceed in Round 19. We’ll worry about the Gold Coast Suns or whoever they put us up against when the weekend’s done and dusted and if and when

    DRAWN AND DEEFLATED by George on the Outer

    1st v 17th ... it would seem a sure one way contest between the Hawks and the Demons but it was not to be with the game finishing in a draw, the only positive being the Demons still retain their top spot on the ladder. Melbourne was taught a football lesson by Al Clarkson, who with limited resources, just instructed his players to scrap, fight and surge the ball forward.  It stifled the Melbourne free flowing style of play and denied them the opportunities they could normally expect.

    PINK RAIN by Whispering Jack

    There is no certainty about life under a pandemic. You wake up one morning without a care in the world; the sun’s shining and it’s a beautiful day. An hour later, everything’s up in the air, the entire state is on high alert and the apartment complex next door’s in lockdown. The simple decision you had to make about buying a ticket to the footy at the weekend suddenly might get put on the back burner. There are other things in life to prioritise and on top of that, they’re predicting rain for th

    COR BLIMEY by KC from Casey

    In years to come, the old timers will talk in wonderment about the “Avalon Avalanche” that hit Werribee’s Avalon Airport Oval on a mild winter’s afternoon at about ten minutes after the halfway mark of the game between the local Tigers and their cross town rivals, the Demons from Casey. At that moment in time, the game was poised as if on a knifepoint. Up until the main interval, it had been the visiting team which had maintained the lead from the start but it had struggled to entirely asse

    POWER FAILURE by George on the Outer

    South Australians should be well familiar with the damage that storms can do to the power supply.  But Port Power forgot those lessons on Thursday night football as they watched the Melbourne storm descend upon them from across the border and ruin their hopes of a top four placing. Just as equally, the win to the Demons cemented their spot in the top two and sent out the message that a team who had been going around in circles for the past couple of weeks, has in fact, turned into a cyclone

    CASEY SUFFER FIRST DEFEAT IN TWO YEARS

    The circumstances were a little unusual last Saturday night as KC from Casey was unavailable to report on the Casey Dees due to work commitments. On the ground things were somewhat unusual as well given that, although there was a game to be won on the night, preparations were also being made for the forthcoming Thursday night clash against Port Adelaide with Ben Brown rested for large slabs of the evening. It turned out perhaps, to be a stroke of genius for Melbourne with Brown making a strong c

    WEATHERING THE STORM by Mel Rundle

    The magic of Melbourne’s magnificent start to 2021 is beginning to wear off. In its past six matches it lost to three teams that were outside the eight, out of form —  teams which it had very little trouble bearing last year. This week, the temperature is turned up even higher with the hard fought spot in the top four at risk. The really ominous factor about the Demons’ upcoming Thursday night meeting with Port Adelaide this week is that it is due to take place at the very place where its dec

    FEE-FI-FO-FUM by George on the Outer

    “Fee-fi-fo-fum, without a Full Forward the Premiership can’t be won!” So said the GWS Giants, as they exposed Melbourne’s fatal deficiency with a nine point win at the MCG.  In past weeks Melbourne has been barely able to gloss over the lack of a serious target in front of goal, while others were able to contribute.  But in a near repeat of the game from the previous week, players running up the ground simply had no-one to kick the ball to, when all that was needed was that one tall target.

    MUCH ADO ABOUT EVERYTHING by Whispering Jack

    Let's face it. We Melbourne supporters are a demanding lot. Here we are with our team on top of the ladder with a record of 12 wins and 2 losses, a decent percentage and a fair run home for a team with finals credentials. We have a fit list with lots of in form players, many of who are in contention for All Australian and other high honours, the team’s playing with purpose and cohesion and its VFL affiliate is undefeated and going gangbusters.  Still, we're all walking around with conc

    HIATUS by KC from Casey

    After their five week Covid19 lockdown hiatus, the Casey Demons were fairly scratchy against Essendon VFL for the best part of 2½ quarters on Sunday afternoon but they finally settled down to motor away to a 48 point victory. With 20 AFL affiliated players on the team sheet, the Casey line up looked the strongest team ever put together since linking up with the Demons but the team struggled to score in the early going and managed its first goal to Aaron vandenBerg late in the first term.

    ESSENDONE & DUSTED by George on the Outer

    Essendon was the latest casualty as the Melbourne juggernaut rolled over the Bombers on its way to a 12th win for the 2021 Season.  It was a display of the difference in quality, coaching and system that defines those who will compete in finals and those that lie outside the top eight. Sadly, in these Covid times a mere 19,414 attended the game and the silence outside the ground before the match was eerie.  Normally, thronging crowds lining up at ticket gates and food carts were replaced by
