Hate to see a list like that shortly before the season starts. Suggests we are behind the eight ball before the commencement of proceedings after a five month layoff.

TBC is such a crumby term. How about some indication for supporters when these boys will or are likely to be available for selection.

I agree mate

TBC basically means the FC is in no rush to announce as they are out for a decent period of time.

Should be concerned with how McAdam has travelled this pre season?

With the reports coming out from Adelaide in regard to his reluctance to take accountability of his rehab.

Just looking at it seems like we are more or less where we were at the end of last season with key outs and that was not a good space to be in.

Based on info gleaned from Demonland (track watchers, linked articles etc) my best guess is something like (taking koz and smith out as they are not injuries - by the by, koz is in ripper nick and right to go round 1. So technically doesn't miss a round. For petts i'm assuming no surgery, but if he has surgery unlikely to add mot than a couple of weeks)

BROWN Ben.png Ben Brown Knee 2-3 weeks
HUNTER Lachie.png Lachie Hunter Calf 1-2 weeks
MCADAM Shane.png Shane McAdam Calf 2-3 weeks

I’ve been told Ben Brown could be available by Round 2 (3rd game). 

I was told two different things about Petty. That he will be back in the next few weeks and that his toe/foot is [censored]. Both credible sources. 

Take these nuggets with a grain of salt.

Is this a Club list or a made up one  by a DLer, adding info that looks like it’s complete guess work as it isn’t in line with info provided from press reports or posts from the Club.

For a bit of perspective, we're far from the only top 8 club with some injuries.

At the pies, Pendulbury and Howes have both had interrupted preseasons and are touch and go round one. Their best forward, mcstay is out for the season with an acl and Krueger did a bad hammy yesterday.

At the swans, Luke Parker has broken his arm and their captain, Callum Mills has a wrecked shoulder he did wrestling on mad Monday (where's the media beat up on that? - i mean getting [censored] and wrecking your shoulder is just boys being boys is it? And hes tbeir captain! Cultural issue i reckon). Both players are huge for them.

They swans are resting Jake Lloyd, Tom Papley, and Chad Warner for their community cup game to ensure they are right to go against us, which suggests all three are not cherry ripe.

My mail is Hunter is struggling. So that’s optimistic.

I would presume the opposite, Papley and Warner underdone no way. No underestimating any Swans players under any circumstances.

For those suggesting that we should have traded Petty for McAdams and pick 14, had Petty been fit for finals last year we most likely would have beaten Collingwood and been a good chance for the GF and combined with JVR sort out our key position forwards.  By comparison the value of pick 14 and a future second round pick would net us a young key position player requiring at least 3 years development at VFL to help us in September. Alternatively to bring in a KPF from another club would require approx $1m per annum on a long term deal whereas retaining Petty would probably save us in the order of $200 - 300k per annum. 

As for Petty being injury prone, I don't see the evidence for this. He has been fairly durable to date with only minor soft tissue injuries until his recent foot problems and most key position players have periods where they miss games through injury. Having a medium term injury does not make a player injury prone.

Jake Melksham ACL Round 16

I’d be very surprised if (at his age) they aren’t aiming for a 9 month post-surgery return to play. That would make him available end of May/early June, if it’s been smooth rehab, which by all reports it has. Round 11-ish.

Ta.

He might find it hard to get back into the team if Windsor makes the wing his own and billings cements a spot.

That's music to my ears.

He looks very fit, so you imagine he'll hit the ground running.

They improve our disposal and forward connection.

Saw Taj Woewodin entering IKON Park today with Daniel Turner. Woey appeared to have a bit of a limp. 

He played and went very well according to the report.

Might be earlier than round 11.

    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

    POSTGAME: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    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
