I just hope Goody is scouring the records for examples where teams lose their star player, but win against the odds. 

Richmond lost Alex Rance to an ACL in round one 2019 and won the premiership

I’m gonna remain confident that he’s avoided a worst case scenario.  There’s not enough media noise for me to think otherwise - the media always seems to get a leak or a tip on a serious injury to a star.  

Max’s injury has been overshadowed by the power outage, but there’s still not enough noise for me to think it’s worse that a medial (which is still pretty bad).

Bring on Schache for 6 - 8!

Spoke too soon… his test was inconclusive

Maxy is going to be out for a while, whatever the diagnosis.  I know the team is bigger than the individual.  But Maxy is huge.  HUGE.  This team needs to dig deep and somehow find a way to move forward.  Coaches, psychologists et al get onto this asap!  Us fans can keep grieving hard but the team can't afford to.  

As Petracca said in the post game interview (talking about the last 12 minutes) words to the effect ‘we had nothing to lose, didn’t give an eff, took on the game’

That is the formula for 2023 (unfortunately the Ferals are very good at it). The team no matter who is playing going forward, need to play like that, take the game on, play fast footy, back themselves in.

Is that a positive that they can't see an obvious tear?

This isn’t new information. The is referring to test they did straight away that was inconclusive.

It also mentions he’ll have tests this afternoon. I believe the flight was at 10, and Max would have been keen to come home given his family situation.

Dont expect to hear anything until later tonight.

Reading the posts in the last 2 pages gave me the impression the worst was confirmed. 

Initial tests inconclusive. Scans due this afternoon. Can the chicken lickens please calm down until then

Colours have been lowered here in the last 24.

I really don’t understand why it’s not ok for us to be incredibly worried and upset that our captain and superstar might have done a third ACL at age 31. 
Nobody is saying they know one way or another, but it’s totally normal to anxiously discuss the worst case scenario. 
I think it’s very unfair to judge people for how they want to handle this pretty crappy situation. 
 

Everyone here is hoping for the best.

Life without Max Gawn was going to happen at some point. 

The narrative was we targeted Grundy for a ruck duo but the reality is we got him for this exact scenario.

If it was 2021 or 2022 I'd be pretty devastated for Max AND the team but we literally have the second best ruckman in the league to fill the spot. 

Rough for Max for whatever the outcome but we are very lucky to have a ready made ruckman to step in.

I don’t like this game Jaded, but inconclusive means they didn’t get a solid end-feel on his Lachman’s test. If this is me in my rooms, I expect the MRI to show ACL rupture, with confidence. Depends on the quality of the tester to a large degree.

Um did you see Grundy’s game last night? He is NOT the second best ruckman in the league anymore… was very ordinary. One mark in two games is not enough

Because some seem to be literally having a public anxiety attack. No amount of worrying about it will change anything in the next 24 hours.

We will find out when we find out. Take a deep breath. Go for a walk. Pat a dog. No one died. The sun came up again this morning, and Geelong still got beaten twice in a row. It’s never as bad as it looks.

We can all do what we want to do in this scenario. You’re more than welcome to not read this thread

Also my dog was very happy with his walk today thanks

It's ok to be concerned. we all are. but there's no point torturing ourselves until the results of the scans are confirmed

Not saying that Jaded. Its been a bad night and morning for DL overall not just with the Max situation and honestly some of the jumping off last night after the big week of talking us up all week really disappointed me. I'm sorry if it bothers people to express that but that's how I felt and while it would be unfair to judge people for being anxious (which by the way I'm just as anxious and about to be sick) think it would be unfair to judge me for having this opinion which frankly I don't have all that often as I usually stick it to the positive police.

Everyone's different, not going to attack the way people feel. I think we weren't at our best on here, myself included. We'll have better days.

There seems to be a real insistence on being right about the loss of Max though. If losing Max ends up being the worst thing for our season then a lot of people will be proven right and more power to them. Those of us bringing up comparisons might be off base but it's all we have to go on right now. I really want some kind of hope, you and I pay a lot for our memberships and I desperately want the boys to still give us something to watch this year. So being attacked for that doesn't make sense either.

I love dealing with reality and facts most of the time but right now I'd rather live in some kind of hope than to be proven right in 6, 10, 20 weeks. 

Hang in there and cross everything you've got Jaded. You're one of the posters who's views I most respect on here.

    THE BLOW by Whispering Jack

    Narrm’s finals prospects took a crushing blow after the team’s insipid performance at Optus Stadium against a confident Waaljit Marawar in the first of its Doug Nicholls Round outings for 2024.  I use the description “crushing blow” advisedly because, although the season is not yet at it’s halfway mark, the Demons have now failed abysmally in two of their games against teams currently occupying bottom eight places on the ladder.  The manner in which these losing games were played out w

    HALF FULL by KC from Casey

    It was a case of the Casey Demons going into a game with a glass half full in their match up against the Brisbane Lions at Casey Fields on Saturday. As the list of injured and unavailable AFL and VFL listed players continues to grow and with Melbourne taking all three emergencies to Perth for the weekend on a “just in case” basis, its little brother was always destined to struggle. Casey was left with only eight AFL listed players from who to select their team but only two - an out-of-form

    Many warned that this was a danger game and the Demons were totally outclassed all game by a young Eagles team at Optus Stadium in Perth as they were defeated by 35 points.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    It's Game Day and the Demons have returned to the site of their drought breaking Premiership to take on the West Coast Eagles in what could very well be a danger game for Narrm at Optus Stadium. A win and a percentage boost will keep the Dees in top four contention whilst a loss will cast doubt on the Dees flag credentials and bring them back to the pack fighting for a spot in the 8 as we fast approach the halfway point of the season.

    WARNING by William from Waalitj

    As a long term resident of Waalitj Marawar, I am moved to warn my fellow Narrm fans that a  danger game awaits. The locals are no longer the easybeats who stumbled, fumbled and bumbled their way to the good fortune of gathering the number one draft pick and a generational player in Harley Reid last year. They are definitely better than they were then.   Young Harley has already proven his worth with some stellar performances for a first year kid playing among men. He’s taken hangers, k

    OVER YET? by KC from Casey

    The Friday evening rush hour clash of two of the VFL’s 2024 minnows, Carlton and the Casey Demons was excruciatingly painful to watch, even if it was for the most part a close encounter. I suppose that since the game had to produce a result (a tie would have done the game some justice), the four points that went to Casey with the win, were fully justified because they went to the best team. In that respect, my opinion is based on the fact that the Blues were a lopsided combination that had
