Craig Jennings

11 posts in this topic

Anyone else catch the end of afl 360 tonight? 

They had an eye opening interview with our assistant coach Craig Jennings, who in the pre-season after considerable urging went to our club doctor who found a melanoma in between his ear and temple.  If he'd procrastinated and put off  catching up with the doc any longer it would've spread, so luckily he'll pull through. 

He's very highy rated throughout the league's coaching circles and its the first time I've ever seen him interviewed.  

Good luck to him in his recuperation!

Good story and a high praise for the AFL Coach's Assn. and our Club's medical staff.  

Also a timely reminder to everyone to have annual skin checks.  As it was in Craig's case, it could be a matter of life and death.

Interesting in the interview that Jimmy was told on numerous occasions to see someone about his lump but ignored the advice including, I'm pretty sure, a referral from his doctor to a specialist. You gotta wonder.

A lesson there for everyone.

Didn't know that.

Ironically there are drugs that cure it now but prevention is obviously the best cure.

Fantastic that he appears to have beaten it. He was getting high, high praise on AFL 360. Slobbo kept banging on about how he could easily be a Head Coach one day and David King credited him as being the person responsible for our Demon Diamond.

Very lucky. It makes you wonder about how much time both players and staff spend out doors and what UV is doing to their skin?

I went away on a trip to the States in December-January this year. I walked around in the sun without sunscreen on for about 4 hours one day in LA. Didn't get burnt at all.

I came back to do a bit of coaching in February in Melbourne and was out in the sun for about two hours and got completely burnt. 

The hole in the ozone in the southern hemisphere is insane. The UV is usually very high in Melbourne as a result. Sunscreen is a must if you're out in it three times a week.

I hope in the future the club thinks about having an in side training shed, same as the bummers have because they are out in during the worst time of the year.

Hope your sun burn wasn't too bad? Hate getting burnt it's not fun.

Massive wraps on him from a couple of Bulldogs people I know. They weren't sorry to see McCartney go but very sorry to lose Jennings to us.

It was a big coup. I think McCartney was a coup too, but each to their own. ;)
