Playing with no ACL??

Recommended Posts

Barry Richardson the Richmond premiership player and physiotherapist played the majority of his career without an ACL. Said he had to learn to jump off the opposite knee and things like that. Not ideal but possible I guess.

He might have that condition where he unable to feel pain, sorry not sure of the name?

You would think it would cause problems later on in his life as a result>

I had an old coach who won a few world cups skiing. As a kid he had a tear and got a knee operation. His coach told him it was fixed, but following an op as a retired adult he realise they cut it completely, so it wouldnt niggle and he would continue to ski! Good old eastern europe.

Maybe Webber could enlighten us, but I think I heard that one may get by in straight line running but twisting and turning as in Aussie Rules it is not on.
