Recommended Posts

Kicking off the 2024 thread with a round up from today’s Herald Sun online edition of each club’s current injury lists:-

MELBOURNE

Clayton Oliver - Has been in the rehab group after having surgery on his knee in the off-season. He has been doing sprint work and some lighter skill based activities and is expected to ramp up his training in the new year.

Angus Brayshaw - Has returned to training but still non-contact for now as he continues his recovery from the sickening concussion occurred in the finals series. Impressed in the Dees 2km time trial.

Harrison Petty - The defender is still recovering from a foot injury which ended his season early.

He remains on a modified program but will join the main group post-Christmas.

Bayley Fritsch - The forward is still being managed after twice hurting his left foot in the second half of the season. He had surgery to repair a fracture in the foot after the first incident in round 16. Fritsch is expected to join main training in January.

Jake Melksham - The forward will look to begin running again in coming weeks after rupturing his ACL in the final round of the home-and-away season. However, the 32-year-old still faces a long road to recovery.

Wasn't sure which thread this news belongs in, but Bailey Smith of the Western Bulldogs has ruptured his ACL (confirmed by the club) and will miss the 2024 season.  

It's a horrible injury that I wouldn't wish on any player from any club.

recovering from an acl is seemingly not as difficult as it used to be

terrible luck for the kid

Its never a good time but to do it in pre-season seems so cruel. Couldn't see him playing next year. He will have to rehab essentially until March 2025.

And from memory he will be out of contract at the end of 2024. Its a 2 way street with contracts. Get injured and you could get shafted with a poor contract.

You are right, you wouldn't, but Brendon Maynard would have to get pretty darn close.

Do clubs have to pay the players entire season match payments even though he never plays a game.

Must be a huge downer for any club to flush 60 -70 K down the lav every month for 12 months.

It happened to us with Lever on about 850K.

Cornes must be having a fit with all these players getting massive long term contracts now Darcy got a whopper at Freo and Rozee. 

Youre one twist of the knee away from a disaster.

It is the only way to keep your stars without wrecking your salary cap

It is definitely a risk worth taking. Even if they sit out one year of an 8 year contract, the savings made by giving these guys long term deals is still enormous and allows you to pay other important players.

Its going to be fascinating to see how he turns out after being idle for 12 months.

hardly 12 months. I think you'll find that the moment SIA get off their rear-ends and convene, that time served will be the punishment. We will impose 2 games like every other club. He is [censored] for doing it, but wasn't the first or will be the last to take recreational drugs in-season.

    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

    DEMONLAND - Good evening, Demon fans and welcome back to the Demonland 2024 Grand Final Podcast ... before we took that last phone call from a Demonlander, we were discussing how the club overcame it’s midseason slump, the season-ending injury to Christian Petracca and the loss for a brief period of skipper Max Gawn due to a  crack to the base of his right fibula, to slowly surge up the ladder turning our detractors into believers and how it ended the year triumphant in the finals with our capta

    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
