2022 Injury List

Recommended Posts



The injury list was our most valuable player in our premiership year and here's hoping that continues next year.

Hopefully ANB's knee concern isn't concerning.

Tomlinson will be a good replacement for Petty if he's not available for the start of the season. Those two are probably fighting for the one spot regardless.

I found David King so annoying last year saying that a healthy list is an extra player when you get to finals... but as it turned out he was dead right.  All the other "contenders" except maybe Port were missing key structural players and couldn't handle it.

Fingers crossed for this year!

Speaking of injury list..

Really disappointing if it's an ACL. He's actually one of my favourite young guns to watch. I rate him higher then his brother.

This one is real tragic. Out of contract at season's end too, horrible luck for GC.

Former Melbourne NGA and Gold Coast’s top draft pick Mac Andrew was involved in the incident and also injured.

Not one post-season surgery . . . except for actually two. Nice work J. Clark. I see News Corp have set up a journalism academy at the University of Melbourne's business school. Apply today.

The two post season surgeries were minor tonsils and wisdom teeth removals. Not exactly surgeries that will impact on a player physically. 
I think that’s fair reporting.

"Melbourne has a clean bill of health heading into the practice match phase, with only minor dental surgeries for Luke Jackson and Trent Rivers." It's not that hard.

I would have thought Riv would have been much more concerned how the " smile effect" on his teeth with his surgery far more than Dogga as he could easily transition to a career in modelling or some such promotional opportunity. 

But that's why we love Dogga not fazed by broken tooth and newspaper highlights to boot!!  The ultimate team man who seemlessly has taken over about 30 mins of Maxy's  ruck work his 2 seasons career!!

I’m told it’s a muscle stimulating device - meant to be beneficial for muscle recovery and injury prevention and that pain and swelling will inhibit the action of muscles required to stabilise a joint. With his history of knee issues he is just using a recovery strategy to ensure when he trains / plays his musculoskeletal system is functoning optimally to reduce his chances of reinjury

Should we be worried about this?

I’m concerned that Goody was part of the group, and is only missing from the photo because he just stepped out to purchase a group lotto ticket.

Thanks for explaining @Demonland, was about to google hyperice. We’ve come a long way since the days of frozen pea bags resting on joints. 

And yet…..still just ice.

I recall in an interview last year Goodwin said something like:   Petracca's knee can blow up after a game so he doesn't do much with it at training on a Monday.

Going on his burst of speed from centre bounces, displayed brilliantly in the GF, he isn't impaired by the knee in games.  Probably all part of the Burgess mantra of building 'physical resilience' and not resting players with 'niggles' from training or from playing.

This pic now explains the round marks you see on Trac’s legs every time he plays. I used to think they were cupping bruises. Thanks for solving the mystery.

    BLUE VIBE AT IKON by Meggs

    It was such a nice vibe at Ikon on Friday night.     Princes Park looked in excellent condition, a relaxed but modest crowd and President Kate Roffey and CEO Gary Pert in attendance, greeting fans and shaking hands.     It was an evening with little to complain about for Dees supporters, save for some drizzling rain, a few missed scoring opportunities and the fact that the Dees as raging favourites duly took the four points.   Carlton was always going to struggle to cover

    BLUES AWAY by Meggs

    This Round 5 clash against the Blues at Princes Park (officially known as Ikon Park) is a great chance for the Dees to bounce back to the winning circle following our top-of-the-table loss to Brisbane last week.     Carlton will be missing several key players with the pundits calling 10 to nil.  Raging favouritism is never a comfortable thing for Melbourne supporters but we simply must deliver on Friday night.   History has seen these teams play four times since 2017 with the Dee

    LIONS POUNCE by Meggs

    Early Sunday afternoon Meggs was coffeeing in Mornington and witnessing hail, thunder, lightning, rain, wind and feeling the freezing temperatures and knowing all these elements were heading towards Casey Fields.  Oh dear.  The Brisbane coach had said during the week that he wanted the game moved to Marvel because “if you're going to have two of the better teams in the comp playing, (it warrants) a venue and deck that suits the occasion”.  However, Casey Fields was uncharacteristi

    RAINING PREMIERS by KC from Casey

    If the threatening dark grey skies that loomed above Ikon Park before the VFL Grand Final didn’t provide a sufficiently inhospitable reception for our visitors from sunny Queensland, the rains that bucketed down after quarter time certainly did. For years, the Casey Demons have welcomed opposing teams at their home fortress with rain, hail, wind and frosty conditions and it was just Southport’s luck that they met those conditions head on in the VFL’s big dance. They suited Casey’s skillful

    PRIDE OF VICTORIA by KC from Casey

    When Casey Demons coach Mark Corrigan talks about his charges putting their “best foot forward” on Sunday when they take on the Southport Sharks in the 2022 VFL Grand Final, it’s a signal that his team is on a mission not only for themselves but in  the name of their forebears, the Springvale Scorpions, and indeed for the pride and honour of the entire State of Victoria. The VFL club now known as the Casey Demons last won a premiership flag under the name of the Springvale Scorpions but tha

    NARRM AT HOME by Meggs

    For the fourth consecutive week, and the second week as the mighty Narrm, we take on a Top 8 team. Could this match be a preview of the Season 7 Grand Final?   Our opponents this week, Brisbane, stand undefeated atop the AFLW ladder after slaying the struggling Freo, and the unrated Giants and Gold Coast.  After amassing 225 points for and only 56 against, for a percentage of 401.8%, the pundits are claiming the Lions have the best attack the competition has ever seen.   Brisbane

    CHANGES 2022 by The Oracle

    Part 1: The year we stood still (or did we?).  Premiership coach David Parkin who  coincidentally turned 80 yesterday, famously used to say that even a premiership team needs to bring at least five new players into the fold in order to advance from year to year and therefore, if this adage remains true, then the Melbourne Football Club really did stand still in 2022.  Of the players recruited after the club’s premiership in September, 2021, only Luke Dunstan (5 games) managed to provid

    NARRM BLITZES EARLY by Meggs

    The last time we played the Saints, Pride Round 3 January 2022, it was an arm wrestle for 3 quarters and a Demons highlights package for 1 quarter. Oddly familiar was our outing to Moorabbin on Sunday, except this week we are Narrm and it’s Indigenous Round.   Our highlights package was contained to a first quarter onslaught. Superior work at stoppages and our mids dominant.  We showcased our run and carry and our dynamic forward line.  With Hore, Zanker twice, Bannan, Fitzsimon and Paxy al

    THE CASEY SHOW by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons will play in the VFL Grand Final at Ikon Park next Sunday after overturning their final round loss to the Brisbane Lions Reserves and dominating the Preliminary Final to emerge victorious by 51 points.  And while the distance in standards between the AFL and VFL at finals time is admittedly a wide one and the opposition and conditions different, there were a few Demons on display who excelled to the point where one was left to ask whether they could have made the difference
