The stress on each foot during a match would be off the charts

i have been waiting for a massive jump in shoe technology in sport for years. We pay big bucks for a players contract, but the footy boot can still be bought at Rebel. 

Every player should have boots made for them personally. 

A Turf toe injury should be covered in a 2018 boot. 

I may be asking too much, but if i am, i will be shocked and amazed. 

Agree ..but of course they wear the sponsor's boot which has to be available for resale.

Certainly not impossible to get handmade boots.... might be harder though to replicate the "air cushion" etc claimed by the high end boots.

PS Just did some research on the NBA players and in the main they wear off the shelf boots with individually designed orthotic inserts.

Amazing, look at any piece of play that becomes congested or a marking contest. A foot could be stood on and shattered at any time, 

and that has nothing to do with a hyperextended  metacarpal

I have known what the injury is for years

The Science of the Football Boot needs to improve

Have you done any reading on the injury?  I didn't post, to let you know the obvious swyl.

Ok, so you're guessing.  I recommend you stick to whatever lane you think your lane is. 

Clearly, making recommendations on player welfare isn't one of them. 

From what I've read soreness is the key.  But I'll leave it to the experts.

We'll know soon enough.

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.

Your just being naive ... our injury management cost us finals last year ... so it needs to be called out

We've got one of the smallest injury lists in the league right now.

You can call it out all you like.  Nobody is listening.

l know that many will disagree with me, but unlike some, I'm not focused just on popularist views .. check the stats for yourself:

2017 injury ladder (and it only got worse as the year progressed and we missed finals)

Hopefully our sports science team don't derail what has been a good start this season

Take a Bex will you please

i am well aware of TMac’s injury. 

If you read the thread carefully you will see i have told you what it is. 

So good to have your mad rambling’s back Deeluded, at least the fonts and colours are now consistent. 

LSD a little less potent i gather...

No it didnt. Appalling effort it final game and inability to kill a side for% cost the finals.

Viney did his own thing in an effort to get back early when he was advised that 9 weeks off was needed. Look what happened. 

Gawn jones and watts were all effectively managed.

Tmac and the team have done the right thing all along this year.

TMac is ok, and will play, as is pretty much confirmed by his inclusion in the final side tonight. TMac and medical staff were being precautionary which is understandable on both their parts given TMac’s previous foot issues. The issue identified this week is not a major one, and the area in concern is different to the one that caused him to miss earlier this year. All are just keen to get him through to the bye round for a rest and reassessment to be done then.

Sauce is good.

And yes boots can be and often are modified to suit specific requirements. It’s the same thing as tennis racquets, for example, you can go to Rebel sport and buy a racquet that looks exactly like the one Federer uses, however as a professional tennis player, he has his own racquets weighted, tensioned etc. to his liking – same principle with footy boots.

Some ideas are not popular because they're wrong. Or stupid.

Didn't know that the Women's Weekly printed information for laymen on football injuries.

I think its stupid to ignore stats for injury management and assume sports science are doing a good job just because its a bit of a black box to read

You have actually highlighted many of the injury mgmt issues last year that caused us issues:

Viney should not be allowed to mismanage his recovery out of a determination to help the team - he is our most influential player

Gawn himself on refection said it wasn't just his hammy but that he did get fit enough to return

Watts was criticised for not getting himself fit for this return and was subsequently dropped. 

Salem was also unfit and dropped back to VFL

Tmac had a set back earlier this year. Lets hope he hasn't had another one.

For what it is worth, I have just been talking to one of our favourite players long term partner who told me that Tommy’s injury is not too bad. He just pulled up slightly sore.

Excuse me??

Hyperextension of the metacarpal is not the name of the injury. It is the injury...

And some ideas are not popular because they are right and the mob don't like them. 

In nearly all forms of social opinion, popularity is often the line of least resistance, not the pathway of greatest truth.

Politicians bank on it, very securely.

On topic, MFC has cruelled by injury in recent years. With limited depth, its impact was heavier on us than others. 

One of the few upsides for MFC is that Jesse's injuries forced us to experiment with Tom up forward. 

It was a stumbled success to rival 3M's "sticky note".
