How so?

Should have come through the VFL and slowly built up game time ... foot injuries are tricky and not to be risked. This (if it is a set back) would now be his 2nd for the year

Seriously, it's just a [censored] toe.  If it's going to stop him playing all the time, just cut the bloody thing off.  I have a set of bolt cutters at my place and would be more than happy to do the job.  What did Chopper say ?- "it makes a kind of popping sound when they come off".

Didn't think I'd ever come to the point in my life where the heath of another man's big toe would be the source of my happiness or discontent.

And yet here I am.

I laughed.

Then I cried.

Good point, if not a little extreme.

If he's got a dodgy toe that is going to keep causing this, he is not going to be worth the amounts slung about here.

What a load of rubbish.  

Playing VFL or AFL would not make a difference on a flare up.  The only reason to play VFL is to gather match fitness and he had clearly shown he didn’t need this.

He did that in the AFL side anyway.  He had done pretty much all of the pre-season training before the injury struck so he still had the base fitness from that.

You're just clutching at straws as you want to blame 'bad management', when it's clearly untrue.

He should have been wearing a bunion splint.

I have a feeling we won't risk him. It's not the best knowing that the toe is flaring up from a training session. Imagine when he travels, and plays a full game in the heat where it will most likely flare up even more?

I reckon he will play and that his foot isnt really sore. This Sunday shapes up to be a crutial game and the sore toe 'story' keeps Adelaide guessing on how we will structure up.

Tmac will probably play if he is travelling with the team let's wait and see. However if he doesn't play we can cover him with a Pedersen. The thing is that the crows have atleast 5 regulars out and the one that can hurts us is out, and that is McGovern. Therefore l feel confident enough to say that we can make it 5 in a row. You can only beat whats in front of you. So let go Dees. Give Pyke a sleepless week.

Rational thinking, nsfm.

TMac will play i reckon

Serious question..

Anyone here know how much work can be done inside a Football Boot, to help with comforting foot injuries?

And soft tissue muscle injuries when a player needs to start off cautiously. and really rsi as well. needs to be not over worked. tendonitis. I would rest him to before the QB game, with only easy running and stretching.

In WA at the moment (live in Melbourne)on holiday and 27 in the sun when you’re active is hot. Try running fast for 14km in that temperature when your home climate it nowhere near that, and I’m confident anyone would get a little toasty!
