I feel like the mood of this thread is somewhat an impact of the club training in Timbuktoo... Now MFCSS is running rampant. 

So a pandemic of highly contagious panic has now set in? The faith healers have appeared. It will be a relief when the vaccine is released.

Seems pretty decent news. Gus & Petty seem the only ones a bit behind (as expected). Plus, a good sign they'll get into some actual footy work pretty early.  

This must be Vanders first pre-season in about 4 years not starting in the rehab group. Hopefully he and Nietschke will have uninterrupted pre-seasons this time around. 

Two years ago things were reversed and Melbourne was up at the top of the list with by far the highest number. Nobody gave a toss about us or demonstrated any sympathy for our plight. So yeah, bi

Gawn was just interviewed on 3AW and he didn’t think the Brown injury was anything serious.

Also said Viney should play one of the pre season games.

I wouldn’t get too excited as Gawn strikes as me as a half glass full guy.

Definitely agree with this assessment, Gawn's a great ambassador for the club but quite often falls into the "everything's hunky dory" side of things. 

I don't really blame some posters for thinking the sky's falling, we've been burnt a couple of times before with recruits looking the good and then having injuries hold them back. It was widely reported during the pre-trade period that Burgess and the club gave Brown a very detailed once over so at the end of the day we've got to back them to know how to manage his knee issues and hopefully it is something that will allow him to play most of the year (obviously including bagging 6 in the GF!).

Let's just wait and see,  hopefully it might be a better outcome than we expected Ds 56. Have to think positive,

Templeton was a CHForward more than a FFwd. However, most games, he starred in both positions as he was a great wanderer and moving target for the Doggies, all game. And boy, could he clunk them all around the forward line, no distance too difficult with his kicking for goal.

Brown has played 22 games a season for 5 consecutive seasons until 2020. His injury history includes nothing chronic or serious.

Let's see what the doctor's say on thursday.

No way - too sensible. I reckon we should panic, certainly well before we know the facts.

After all, this is how the masses on the planet seem to operate these days.

Not sure if T Mac on the wing will work or not, but maybe trying him on the wing has to do with endurance. He looks a lot leaner. Heard on radio with less rotations this season you will need blokes on the wings that can run all day and it’s one position you might have to leave out there longer.

Not sure whether it has been mentioned already, but the one positive is apparently BB is not in any kind of pain and the concern is more  just in the swelling itself i.e. they dont want it to develop into something more significant.

Having some degenerative conditions myself I can tell you that there is always pain and stiffness (and my Osteoarthirits is so small that its not even detectable on x-ray or MRI). 

No doubt he would have had scans on his knee following the original injury and MFC would have definitely known about any structural changes to the knee (i.e. osteoarthritis) in the medical. 

My gut feel is its something probably not so sinister like scar tissue (formed as a result of the injury) in the ligament / tendon creating some inflammation and swelling in the joint as it rubs some of the boney structures. Hopefully an arthroscopy can clean it up and will allow the effected tissue to heal properly. I'm expecting ~ 3 month layoff but i don't think we can write off his career just yet.

Frankly this club gives me no confidence again after Browns injury.  It smacks of poor due diligence prior to signing him up.  I for one will not expect anymore from this club.  I will see after first 7 rounds where we sit, however cannot trust them at all after nearly 60 years of mediocrity.

We seem to have some experts on the amount of bandaging that disqualifies a player from training who were mysteriously silent on that subject before now.   Let's see what happens and hope for the best.

Most bandaging is PREVENTATIVE only. Approx 70% — ie not post injury taping. Especially ankles and shoulders. So if you rested all taped plates you’d be resting 70% healthy and fit players. 

 

god some ppl need to grow up. It’s SWELLING he doesn’t need a damn reco... ALL teams cop injuries, this is just insanity. He will be fine and has been dominating all PS with the swelling g club just want to be sure they are handling correctly..

Just ignore them, they don’t understand that these days ALL clubs follow SAME medical testing protocols set by independent medical experts and followed by club medicos. BB is FINE, he’s not got any pain and will likely have swelling for most of his life due to scar-tissue that’s developed where his original knock was. Club being SUPER cautious only. If advice is rest he will rest of it’s time get a scrape he will have a scrape. Just ignore the doomsday-mania crowd, it’s hard I know but having fun with it is fine, these other sillies calling for sackings and saying club lacked diligence cus guy has swelling on a less than 12mth old injury is absurd!!!

Not surprising, it was never going to be nothing. Interesting that it is cartilage damage - whether it is a rip in the cartilage or scar tissue hard to say, but these things are generally repairable.

    THE EYE OF THE STORM by Whispering Jack

    When Melbourne monstered Richmond a few weeks back on the MCG thereby registering their sixth win on the trot, the block of games to follow looked highly appealing. After a stirring victory in difficult conditions over the reigning premier, the games to come were against a quartet of low achievers from 2020. North were winless, the Swans were the early high flyers now falling into a slump, Carlton couldn’t take a trick and the Crows had just lost an unloseable game to the Hawks in Launceston. Ev

    DUCKING A PLUCKING by George On The Outer

    With seven consecutive wins for 2021 behind it, and not having played well in its previous game,  Melbourne was ripe for the picking (or plucking) by the Sydney Swans. However, in the end, it was the Ducks who found themselves plucked by a Demons side that continues its relentless successful roll for the Season. Or did the Demons narrowly duck a plucking themselves? Sydney brought its usual game style to the M.C.G.  Get in front and then shut down the game, scrap and refuse to mov

    THE MERRY, MERRY MONTH OF MAY by The Oracle

    The month of May was a little more than halfway into its second day when the news came. Melbourne was on top of the AFL table for the first time since Round 3, 2005. As usual with the Demons, there was no time for celebration. They had just lost tough nut Jack Viney with yet another soft spot in his foot, Adam Tomlinson’s year was in ruins with what was subsequently confirmed as an ACL and Bayley Fritsch’s careless but unintentional fend off on North’s Tom Powell was about to see him charge

    BLUNDSTONE BOOTED by George on the Outer

    The tough Aussie Blundstone boot is made for true blue collar workers, and so it was at this aptly named stadium in Hobart, that the Demons were made to work their hardest for their seventh consecutive win of the season. From the outset, North Melbourne put scoreboard pressure on Melbourne with two majors at an early stage in the first quarter. The Demons fought back and temporarily had the lead but the Kangaroos responded to lead by five points at quarter time. This was not what the public

    UNTROUBLED by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons were untroubled for the third week in a row as they went on a four quarter romp at Marvel Stadium to record a 107 point win over an undermanned bottom-of-the-ladder North Melbourne VFL. The scoring riot began about ten minutes into the game when Sam Weideman notched the first of four goals that could easily have been six or seven but for some uncharacteristic misses from close in. The Demon forward, spurned so far by the club’s AFL selectors, demonstrated a strong work rate

    I’LL GIVE THEE A WIND by Whispering Jack

    The football world was reminded this week about the last time Melbourne opened a season with six wins or more in a row. That was in 1965 when Sir Robert Gordon Menzies was Prime Minister of Australia and the country was fighting a war in faraway Vietnam. It was before Jack Viney’s father, Todd, was born — a time when the game was played almost exclusively on Saturdays and when Demon fans used to wake up in the morning mostly safe in the knowledge that there was not even the remotest possibility

    MAKING HISTORY by KC from Casey

    This was a weekend of history with Anzac Day commemorations throughout the community including the sporting world including the VFL. For the Casey Demons, which originated from the Springvale Football Club founded in 1903, it was a double celebration as Saturday’s game was a celebration of the club’s 750th VFA/VFL match since admission to the competition in 1982. Springvale became the Casey Scorpions in 2005 when the club moved to Casey Fields and since 2017 has been known as the Casey Demo

    THE TWO ELEPHANTS NOT IN THE ROOM by WJ

    After another slow start when they conceded 2.3.15 to nothing in a handball-happy opening 15 minutes, the unflappable Demons delivered a warning sign of major proportions to the rest of the competition with their 34-point win over the reigning premiers in their Anzac Eve contest. And what made things even more ominous is that they did it without two elephants in the room - key forwards Ben Brown and Sam Weideman who have been amassing goals at VFL level while coming back from injuries that

    A TALE OF TWO HEROES by Whispering Jack

    On Saturday night at the ANZAC Day Eve game between Melbourne and Richmond, we will give recognition to the achievements of two great Demons who made significant contributions to the Melbourne Football Club over substantially different time spans. The first is the late Frank V “Checker” Hughes who was born on 26 February 1894 and began his career as a Richmond player in 1915. Shortly after, Hughes was called on to serve his country when he went to war during WW1. He returned from battle and

    TURNING POINT by The Oracle

    It wasn’t that long ago when Melbourne held sway in its Anzac Eve matches against Richmond. The early versions of the blockbuster saw the Demons home by 32 points in 2015 and 33 in 2016. When the turning point came it was dramatic and sudden. The Demons might have been on an upward curve in 2017 under new coach Simon Goodwin but so were the Tigers who had finished a disappointing 13th in 2016. When the teams met in Round 5 under lights in front of a crowd of 85,657 — the highest ever betwee

    STARTING OVER by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons made a successful return to the playing field with a 51 point away from home victory over the Box Hill Hawks. The visitors were starting over after a hiatus of almost 20 months and fielded a strong team of 14 AFL listed players against an undermanned opponent. And they showed from the first bounce that they were out to make up for lost time with an aggressive opening that saw them off to 21 point lead at the first break with thanks to a dominant midfield and two key forward

    NUTCRACKER by George on the Outer

    Q: How to crack a tough nut? A: Use a bigger hammer! It took Melbourne until the last quarter to crack the Hawthorn nut. These days, the Hawks under Alastair Clarkson simply don’t have the talent that served them so well in years gone, and they have to rely on not losing rather than trying to win.   The result is that the match became a slog for three quarters, as Hawthorn clogged the game, flooded heavily and simply stopped the Melbourne run.  Even in the first quarter the signs
