Was that source Ken Hinkley?

Because Hinkley made it clear in a presser a few weeks back they were resting him till the bye. Pretty sure Davies also said similar in his presser.
Ahhh missed that announcement, heard it from someone a few days ago who I assume knows him or deals with him knows his wife. Said they were giving him the extra time due to the location of the head knock.

Wonder what's up with Trengove? I reckon I recall a commentator saying he looked sore while playing the other day.

Brad Ebert sitting on 2-3 weeks. Really getting worried for him now.
Already missed 3, so thats 6 weeks with concussion. Thats pretty scary, should put a line through him for the year and makes you question his long term future.

There was a bit about Paddy McCartin on talking footy, sensitive to lights and noise. Can't drive, go to the shops or even go to a cafe. He said he is a shell of who he used to be.

Paddy McCartin should retire right now. That's just scary having to deal with that, don't even think about putting yourself at risk by playing again.

I sincerely hope that Ebo isn't in anything like the same boat.
yeah that mccartin interview was hard to listen to , if the symptoms last longer then 3 weeks retire from you're sport , its not worth it

Paddy needs to retire for his long term health. Poor fella. I agree for Brad to take the year off. These players as much as we like footy and them need to think long term from these multiple head knocks. They have long lives to live beyond AFL.

Remember when the AFL said the head was sacrosanct?
Remember when the slightest of grazes to the head resulted in penalties?
Remember when Brad Ebert didn't even get a free kick for 2 hits to the head in 2 minutes, resulting in him coming off the ground and not playing again for 2 months?

Bomberclifford remembers.

I can't understand why I knee in the head, while attempting a mark, is not a free.
A knee can do a lot of damage.

Think it was a guy who has C in his name. He also has a U. I think there is an N. Pretty sure there is also a T.

I hope he doesn’t mean flying to Shanghai
The club is taking the piss out of members that pay good money for memberships. Flying Dixon to China and paying Sutcliffe a $70k bonus for leading the reserves is wastage.
