I think acquired brain injuries would be viewed as a special case, particularly given the publicly around it. Something will happen eventually so we may as well be the first to ask.
Not to make light of what is a very serious topic, but I'm starting to think that following the saints is a form of acquired brain injury

News that Paddy intends to play on at the club's urging have just reached the legal fraternity. Information caravans from Maurice Blackburn, Slater and Gordon and Shine Lawyers have been seen setting up in Linton Street. Erin Brockovich is making a special guest appearance at training.

Players have died before, the fella from the Dees in the Tsunami and the Port player in the US... neither club received compensation to my recollection. SO even there I don't think there's grounds for a PP. I'm not into it personally, let's just take it on the chin and move on.
Like I said, maybe.

There's an assumed risk for a kid playing sport and an assumed risk for a club selecting a kid.

If Paddy was a pick 40, I doubt we'd be having this discussion.

I don't think anyone has raised it for Robbo, who is 100 times a better player.

As mentioned, I reckon we need a mid year draft for injuries. Club can either top up for immediate needs or pick for the future.

Dees got a player for Broadbridge the guy killed in the tsunami.

Bit of chutzpah that he’s taking the credit for Membrey’s goal kicking.
It was great before he started messing with him :oops:
An elephant stamp for the use of the word chutzpah. Well played.

I doubt you'll get that up. The UN would step in. Cruel and unusual punishment as well as torture are forbidden under the Human Rights charter.
