Tom McDonald Sent for Scans


Demonland

Recommended Posts

Channel 9 news just reported that TMac went in for scans today. Haven’t elaborated yet. Stay tuned. 

UPDATE:

Just saw the spot on 9 news. They Doorstopped him at AAMI Park presumably walking from the radiologist place that is there back to the MFC facility. He is adamant that he will play this week and it’s just ongoing monitoring of his Lisfranc injury.
 

From about 1:42 of this clip

I remember seeing vision of McDonald and Goodwin in what looked like a serious discussion after the match to which McDonald and Goody both looked down  towards his foot.

 

He was off the ground for a long time towards the end but came back on.

I suppose Schache and JVR will be very interested in the outcome.

Not like-for-like in my books. Fritter is a 3rd forward, not a KPF.

I do agree with this absolutely, but don’t think we’ll see Schache or JVR come in if Fritta returns this week. I think our best forward structure is 2 keys + Fritta but really don’t think they’ll do it.

What would be stopping them?  Surely they have trained in that tall role all preseason and if they are both fit, they will chose whoever is in the best form.

Surely Fritta (if he really is ready) replaces Pickett. Which means JVR might get his chance. 
 

But the main hope is that it’s all a storm in a teacup. But foot injuries…. It makes me shudder. I think of Jack Viney who took years to get right, and then Jack Trengove and Aaron VDB who didn’t.

JVR come on down!

Doesn't sound like great news for TMac. He's struggled with his foot for years now, and at 30 years old it's not going to get any easier to manage or recover from when injured. Shame his last few years have been impacted by the foot as he was really hitting his stride as a good key forward.

I've long been a TMac fan but he must be close to cooked. If either Schache or JVR can't offer what he offered on Saturday night then why are they on the list.  Name one thing he did that the others couldn't do. Not to mention Fritsch will take Laurie's spot soon enough. If JVR hasn't built the tank as someone suggested then play Schache and see if at 25 the penny has finally dropped.

Channel 7 said it was a standard scan post off season surgery.

Channel 7 also said Viney and May more likely to return this week than Salem and Fritta.

Must have been the foot of a giant that stepped on Fritta... 6 weeks off for a stomped foot sounds like someone is lying.

Could be wrong but didn't someone on DL post it was Stafford.  If so that fits the 'foot of a giant' description😉.

Edit: @WalkingCivilWarhas just clarified it wasn't Stafford... see a few posts below.

    FEARS by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne’s worst fears about the absence of Max Gawn were realised when it received a shellacking from Fremantle’s ruckmen Sean Darcy and Luke Jackson who dominated the hit out tally in their game at Optus Stadium on Sunday by a massive 47 to 19. As a result, the 50-point deficit at the end of the game proved to be a loss that was long foreseen that was two years in the making and demonstrated a complete lack of hindsight and planning from the club. To add insult to injury, Jackson was a D

    RAIN CHECK by Whispering Jack

    The Frankston Dolphins broke a run of six straight losses against their neighbours, the Casey Demons and kept their hopes for a long-awaited return to the VFL finals alive with a 27 point victory over at Kinetic Stadium. Casey was welcomed to the Peninsula by grey skies, heavy rain and angry seas with threatening white-capped waves whipped up by gale force winds. After a slow start in the opening term when they failed to take advantage of the breeze, it appeared that the Demons had decided

    EARLY BIRDS by KC from Casey

    Wet, slippery conditions and threatening rainfalls greeted the VFL Bombers at the end of their long journey southeast of the big city on Sunday. The threatening weather combined with the fact that neither side had realistic prospects of advancing to action in September, meant that spectators gathered at a cold Casey Fields weren’t expecting a classic exhibition of football. Nor did they get one. Instead they were presented with a dour struggle that never reached great heights. It was a
