He’s looked off the pace a number of weeks now, sadly not a surprise.

Serious? I must be watching a different game to you because I think he's been exceptional so far.

Biggest difference in change that I've noticed is he's not playing the rugby scrum style he's been doing the last few years. He's keeping it simple and playing a good selfless game and actually getting his teammates involved.

His game against Richmond was the best he's played since 2018 finals.

He's a huge loss and on the weekend it certainly showed.

On a somewhat positive note, Brukie and Burgo have said on their podcast that 6 months is plenty long enough for an ACL. Neither is sure why in the AFL a year is taken for granted. Other sports, 6 months.

Very few other sports are "360 degree" sports like AFL

Sad news for Tommo, has been a key part of the back 6 this year, and cannot be underestimated in allowing May and Lever to play the roles that we need of them.

That said I think between Hibberd, Petty and TMac we have options for covering him. 

Guess Daw as well, signed for Cover for a few key positions and we're currently without Hore/Tomlinson all season and Smith for another 8 or so, so Majak finds himself closer to the team as a defender than a forward.

No not at all, i just think more technology should be put into the AFL boot. I think it is sadly lacking compared to other areas

Good move signing Majak. 
he will be needed at some stage...

  • Demonland changed the title to Jack Viney’s foot injury

Bugger. I guess we all suspected it but it still disappoints you when it's confirmed. 

Poor Adam, I hope the boys get around him and lift his spirits. He knows this team is onto a good thing and npw he won't be a part of it.

Look forward to having him back next year.

From an article on the MFC site - 

“Meanwhile, Richardson has provided an update on Jack Viney, who was a late out of Sunday’s game with a toe complaint.

The 27-year-old will be sidelined for approximately two to three weeks, after reporting some lingering soreness in his toe.

“Pleasingly there is no fracture and we have caught the hotspot in Jack’s toe extremely early,” Richardson said.

“Jack will be on a modified training program for the next couple of weeks and we are confident that this is a minor setback for him.

“We will monitor how Jack responds to the rehab plan with the aim for him to return in the next 2-3 weeks.”

Good comments SWYL. It’s illustrative that you use the word ‘boot’. Boots, in my opinion would give more protection especially to the ankle.

AFL players wear sprinting footwear. My guess is that their pace is not improved markedly.

If I was him at 28, in this squad in this year. I would roll the dice on a synthetic LARS ligament and potentially be back playing in 6 weeks.

Rather than go traditional and be back next year. Can always go down that road if the LARS fails.

Too many foot issues happen nowadays Deef. We need to be proactive 

Jack Viney is going to have this problem for the rest of his career 

So how do we get the best out of him and minimise the time he spends on the sidelines?

Interesting, I’d forgotten about those.

I would be very surprised if Darren Burgess hasn't considered this. He's the best in the business so surely something as obvious as customised footwear has not been over-looked.

Looks like this hot spot was picked up as part of regular scanning which means a quicker recovery. I'm sure Burgo is keeping a close eye on Jack and will manage him in line with best practice.

In Burgo I trust.

I am hoping you’re right. 
We looked a different side completely with Jack out of the middle 

But it is something that has bugged me since The Docklands opened in 2000

Foot issues....

I don’t understand why we rushed to give him 5 years when he has so many ongoing foot issues. 
There is no doubt he’s an important part of our team and we are worse off defensively in clearances when he isn’t playing. But he hasn’t had an injury free season for a long long time, and that doesn’t appear to be changing. 
It’s a real concern that he can’t get over the foot problems. 

?we didn’t rush to give him 5 years, he was out on contract and being courted by other teams.  The bloke has a 2 week injury, it’s not exactly a catastrophe.

Jack Viney hotspot in foot. 2-3 weeks.

Just announced on Fox Footy..

And we signed him for 5 years with known previous foot/ ankle issues. Even if its not related its a very worrying sign IMV

Seems like that quick fix treatment has been moved right away from of late?

They are very much out of vogue. Upsetting for Tommo, but I’d go down the normal graft acl route. Get his recovery right and his knee will be as good as new.

I think there a few instances where it is the right choice.

Afl player in a contract year late in career - better to be playing than not.

Bloke like Tommo here injured at a [censored] time when a deep finals run (in professional footy) it looking ominous.

Mid forties lady who still wants to play with kids and go for the week at the snow but can't commit to 12 months rehab.

Outside of those particular circumstances - would not touch it. 

Not saying he will  or for his longer life physical health he shoould.... But deep runs at this level are why you play the game. I'd have a long hard look at the option in his shoes

    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

    LONG AGO AND FAR AWAY by Whispering Jack

    When the combatants that are due to face off on Monday night at Optus Stadium last met, it was 11 days after the World Health Organization had declared the Covid19 outbreak a global pandemic. In Australia, the first cases had just come to light, including visiting US actors Tom Hanks and wife Rita Wilson, the toilet paper panic was in full flight and the world was starting to reel in anticipation of impending disaster.
