Recommended Posts

Setback? I thought the above was always going to happen as part of making sure he is right for Round 1?

True. Nothing new here. Just practicing some click bait.

It's a bannable offence.

Can the owner of the site ban himself though?  That is the question...

Don't like the words Stress fracture in feet, history says what ever the club and player says add a month.  Anzac Eve match return fro Viney

I did put a question mark at the end. Is punctuation a bannable offence?

It's a loophole.  I think you're safe. ;)

As he said himself, looking for wins to get to finals he came back too early. Now this really does beg the question. Who has the final say as to whether a player is fit or not?? I would suggest that the Medical Staff and fitness people should always have final say. Jack Viney played and the rest is History.

I reckon the discussions then and now would make fascinating listening about this injury and the rehabilitation, not to mention possible ramifications for the future of complications or setbacks. As Jack Viney says the latest injury is located in a  different part of the foot. However, as I have seen in the past injuries like this have a habit of leading to other injuries because of the overcompensation effect. Just my opinion!

It’s hard to know the whole picture of what went on when that decision for him to play was made.  As good as modern medical testing is in professional sport, the medical and fitness team largely rely on the honesty of the player.  Hopefully Viney was completely upfront with them and wasnt trying to be too ‘tough’. (Though that’s one of the things we all love about him.)

Chris Judd spoke recently about how he misled medical staff about how he was feeling in order to get back into the team/training track sooner.  

Players can feel very guilty watching their team struggle without them.

I recollect reading somewhere on this forum, last year, that if Viney played it would not effect his foot, one way or the other.

 My grand ma said it was a bad dream, and i slept with the light on......

I have a gut feel that Jack's return will be no earlier than  Round 5.

He’s still a decent shot at winning the Bluey even on this basis

Jack's like a young bull at the gate with an attractive heifer in the next paddock atm. Can't wait to get going. Captain or not I hope the club lays it down clearly and firmly to him that he has to meet the requirements that every other player has to meet. No exceptions. Fully recovered, couple of games at Casey just to prove fitness and match-readiness. Time we stopped shooting ourselves in the foot so to speak by rushing players back before they're ready. It's a long season.
