2024 Injury List


Whispering_Jack

Recommended Posts

Wow Turner has made a very quick recovery. I thought he had a leg injury not a hip injury? Either way, it's good news if he's only one week away as he covers the loss of Hore.

I am sure he will have to spend some time with Casey, but it's good news anyway.

Also is McAdams just permanently stuck on 2-4 weeks? Are they generating a new hamstring for him in a lab or what?

McAdam has come in from 3-5 to 2-4. Baby steps. 

Spargo’s stuck at 2-4 though.

Last week he was 3-5 weeks so there's some movement.

He'll need a couple of weeks at Casey so he's still a way off

"Shane McAdam continues to work through a hamstring injury, taking positive steps forward re-joining the main group.

“Shane is beginning to integrate into training with the team,” Griffith said.

“He’ll continue to train with the group as we build him into being available for selection in the coming weeks.”"

Is it worth trialling Tommo as a fwd at Casey.

The defenders Tmac and Petty have done alright forward.

I'm just thinking if a tall defender like Tmac needs games off then Petty goes back.

If Bbbs is injured we are back with Schache. 

It would be nice to know if he can at least do it and not unrealistic about Tmac and Bbb. ( I so hope they will be ok).

I  think the Port game was the best game in two years for the two of them.

LITB 

You have hit the answer right there if you leave Petty at FF.

Why move him for Tmac or Tommo or Schache. He will kick goals very soon as he is too good a player not too.

Only move him back for any cameos or if either May or lever are missed greatly.

Also Disco is available next round for Casey return. 

If it ain’t broke don’t try and fix it.

Sorry 58 er you really confuse me.

I try to be patient.

I want Petty at Ff.

I'm not talking about changing anything 

I'm suggesting we trial Tommo for multiple replacement roles in case something happens to Tmac or Bbb which is quite likely. I suggest this because I'm not sure Schache is up for much.

The depth player such as Laurie, Tomlinson etc should definitely be exposed to other positions at VFL level.

The reality of the modern squad is that you can't cover every position and develop players.

Can Tomlinson play forward. Probably not but worth looking at. He did play wing IIRC at GWS in a rather good side.

Laurie on the other hand is a perfect candidate for multiple roles. Could he have filled the Bowey role for example?

I’m convinced Shane McAdams is growing a new hamstring in a lab 


What sort of shocking condition did he come in from Adelaide where he was managed by Burgess?

Bowey is now nearly 5 weeks from when he did his shoulder. An 8 week injury they said....

Yet he's still 5-6 weeks away?

Great news that Disco is back. Reckon he’s got a big future. 

Poor bugger has never had an injury free run.

Prior to the season he would have been next in line - now the resurrection of TMc and the reemergence of Hore has him way back in the queue 

Good luck Disco.

    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
