He was actually in ripping nick before he got his syndesmosis injury against Collingwood. He was top 5 in the Coleman at that point if i recall correctly.

Then all the deadbeat media pundits were saying he is unprofessional because he looked unfit and had gained weight around the midrift when he got back.

No ***t. He couldn't run for 8 weeks of a 17 week season and we rushed him back before he had a chance to get his conditioning back because we were desperate for someone who could kick a goal.

He was doing a solid amount of CBAs before he hurt his ankle too. Once he came back he didn't really go in the middle (also a conditioning thing).

Absolutely this, think many have been very harsh on him.

No, you're wrong.

We he wasn't in ripping nick in the Collingwood game - that was the same game BT/Bruce called him out during the broadcast for being out-of-shape.

So he was out of shape before he did his ankle, and came back in even worse shape.

That’s because Bruce is a dickhead. Stringer did it all that night, in the middle and up forward

Didn’t play like he was out of shape.

Reckon the hub was poison for some, great for others - we have seen it across the board, like Grundy had a poor year, hated the hub, STK seemed to revel in it. Maybe Jake despite the injury was never going to prosper in that environment, it seems (from afar) he really needs his kids, maybe they drive him to go the extra yard. Must have been hard to be away for so long

Id heard similar commentary about the NBA bubble (maybe NBA fans can clarify if true), younger teams performed better, less crowd big stage pressure, older guys struggled initially as they had their families etc.
