Regardless of the extent of the injury, once we were knocked out by Brisbane he should've been placed in cotton wool. Idiotic decision to let him keep playing/training for Casey.

That’s crap! Players love playing footy and that’s what they are trained to do.

Yes they sure can but they have had a proud and long history and plenty of opportunities to perfect a Good Show.

No expense spared of course helps.

I see it as a Horses for Courses and we will be a republic in 20 or 50 or 100 years depending on our collective Will to create it. History is reducing their realms each decade or more like each century. 

Not on my mortal watch will we be a republic and I am quite happy to let UK be the traditional Monarchy that keeps the people happy in easier or tough times. Their Govt like ours had just had a change for the better (Leader) and we are in good hands with ScoMo and his malcontents safely deposed for what I expect is at least 2/3 terms of righteous thinking of what they want to mean!

The spoils of our VFL Cup are yet to unfold but some gems are likely when the dust settles from the quirky precocious  youth to potential AFL' ers of 2/3 years and Sam is he Jacko's replacement or do we need Brodie Grundy as well to cushion big Maxy? 

A better health fortune snd game plan for 2023 plus hunger from all will be a great tonic fir another very serious assault on another Flag. 

 

 

  

 

I almost agree with you.  We need both IMO of course that assumes the Weid wants to stay.

Maybe he was going to have surgery anyway to remove the metal?

 

👍

Calm down all.  My whispers are that the plate is about to be / has been removed, as planned. 
So, he may be seen in a moon boot - be warned.

but did he in fact re injure that foot? :-)

Who knows?  Unless “the reinjury” bent the plate or screws I would doubt it would be removed at this stage had it actually been “reinjured” in the sense that the same place had fractured again. 
Webber?

Why does it have to be a whisper though. Can't the club just make a simple statement?

after the 2018 ef the club supposedly had 11 (icr exact number) players sent for operations. we didn't find out about this for 6 months or more and even then with little detail.

so there is nothing unusual about this and because it is out of season player privacy probably comes into play

But it is ok to hang 2 coaches out to dry. Obviously their privacy doesn't matter.

I get that, but as far as we know McDonald missed a VFL GF by re-injuring a serious and known foot injury.  Or so we think. Did he or didn't he? It's hardly a privacy issue.

fair enough in mcdonalds case

i was just talking generally about players having ops post-season to clean up injuries they've been carrying and playing through

don't get me wrong, i'd love to get a good run-down from the club of all the players having post season ops, but it seems fairly common practice we only find out much later

They are trained to win flags for the MFC. Once the MFC was knocked out of finals everything should have gone towards preparation for 2023. TMac came back way too early to try and play finals for MFC in 2022. Once that was done no need to keep persisting.

Did you have an intimate knowledge of his progress?

Yeah. Lisfranc injury - extremly hard to come back from quickly and in most cases come back the same, metal plate in foot - very hard to run again fully within 12 weeks. 

It doesn't take an intimate knowledge Demons11. Some things are obvious.

False equivalence.

One is an investigative journalist reporting on a public interest story, the other is a club releasing medical information about players out of season (when it doesn't have an impact on this week's games).

He missed a Casey GF - it was in season for him. So the logic used here is say nothing about it before the GF and then you don't have to after because it's a privacy issue?!

No matter - we are just going around in circles. None of us really know and we're not going to be told. I, for one, will move on.

The off season still is important for recruiting Drafting players and delisting plus injury surgeries and rehabilitation.

It doesn't mean we should be deprived of information or updates on any matters.

we thrive on this info and it makes us look forward to next season do much more!!

Some things are just obvious to someone who can read what a lisfranc injury is on google.  I’ll take the view of the Melbourne doctors and high performance team over you Dr. Google

    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
