The AFL’s concussion rules are absolutely ******. He shouldn’t be playing for a month.
Rockliff will be good to go this weekend. Him staying in Brisbane for a few days doesn't mean anything. In fact a few of the older players didn't train the other day.

Hmm perhaps I’m wrong

Types of concussions

Concussions are sometimes graded on the severity of their symptoms:

  • grade 0: headache and difficulty concentrating
  • grade 1: headache, difficulty concentrating, and a dazed feeling for less than a minute
  • grade 2: grade 1 symptoms, with a longer period of feeling dazed, possibly accompanied by dizziness, confusion, amnesia, ringing in the ears, and irritability
  • grade 3: loss of consciousness for less than a minute
  • grade 4: loss of consciousness for longer than a minute
Returning to very limited activities following a grade 0 or 1 concussion may be allowable within a day or two. A grade 2 headache may require a few days of rest. A grade 3 or 4 concussion will mean at least a few weeks of recovery time. Regardless of the severity of your concussion, you should be symptom-free before returning to normal activity, and your condition should be carefully monitored by your doctor.
Would have thought all grades of concussion were accompanied by irritability.

He moved to Adelaide, and got dumped by his wife?! Damn...
That's what I have heard. There is no way the concussion kept him up there.

He wanted to come back on, felt ok after a short period on the bench, but the doctor wasn't sure, so they kept him off according to Hinkley on SEN.

Is Dixon out for the year or what..?

Clubs saying nothing.
Club knows nothing more than you or I. Im not even sure if he's returned back to adelaide since we gave him leave after his surgery.

Unless we want our medicos chasing him around australia to give his ankle and leg a test we wont know a thing until he gets back for a few weeks.

I said around the time that he got injured that i wouldnt be surprised if he misses more than 12 months because of it.

Dixon is back in Adelaide. He was out at Gauchos with the 1st and 2nd year boys the other night. Looks like he bought them all dinner. Might've lost a bet with Butters.

Dixon took some pics while on his adventure to go race his car, his right ankle was free of strapping, but looked clearly swollen next to his other leg. Hopefully though within the next week he'll be trying to run again though and seeing how it goes.

I'd still hope if all goes well that he could be back after the bye, but thats probably a stretch.

We can't rely on Ryder only as out tall forward... We are in huge trouble
We are playing two: Paddy/Lycett; and Westhoff. Without Marshall, Rozee has picked up the "third-tall" duties, along with Ebert.

The structure is there, but we could have more (and taller) players in the rotation. We end up wasting Hoff down there.

Hoff has barely done a thing up forward for 2 weeks now
