If he's had a set back I'm gonna melt big time. Already starting to.
He goes unnamed on the team sheet and as we grab the lead in the third quarter he hops the fence from amidst the cheer squad fully kitted and takes his position on the field. We cop the fine but it's worth it for the the level of epicness that would attain.So the plan would be to be one man for the first half in a final?
For the last point, I’ve read somewhere that women are more susceptible to ACL injuries in general due to their wider hips which put the knees under more stress.It’s got me stuffed why there are so many acl injuries in footy compared to other sports and the other thing, if you consider the amount of players and percentage of acl’s
Your more than likely to do a knee more than once in your sporting life compared to the percentage who don’t do one at all.
Makes me wonder if it’s the amount of straight line drills as a junior compared to BBall ,Hockey and Soccer
You can also see it in the womens footy the amount there’s been last few years
Thank you for all of your input as it’s almost impossible to know what these types of injuries are all about unless you’ve tragically suffered one.The surgeons explained to me that we don't have the data because you could never get ethics clearance. The only way you could check the tensile strength of the graft would be to apply pressure to various patients to the point of breaking it at various points of the recovery, which no clearance committee would grant. A scan won't show the kind of stuff needed to assess its strength.
So they use reinjury rates at various points and their knowledge of tendon pathology to guesstimate when it's weak and when it starts to lay down its own collagen and strengthen. That's the only kind of data set and theory they have, so they can't get exacts, but tendon pathology indicates that it's yet to lay down its own collagen at this stage.
Far from an exact science so it's more just conservative guesstimation. How Alex feels though, and how his muscle recovery and move is feeling, has very little to do with the actual strength of the graft itself, which is the important thing.
if he can play 2-3 vfl games before our first final then it makes senseTwo things I want to know:
-WTF why??? Why put on the LTI list now? It doesn't make sense at all. It's not like we were desperate to get a player in this position. I'm not saying Rance had a setback but there has to be more to it.
-When will Tom Browne be running with this story? Hi Tom
