Do you know about the concussion itself? Was it a huge hit which would concuss anyone for ages, or was it a small one that has seemingly caused much more damage than you would think? I know Paddy McCartin has been knocked out several times by what looked like tiny hits to the head. I am actually hoping it was a huge hit that would have affected anyone, and not an indication of an issue that is more related to McCartin's body itself.Just had a chat to an ex player who looks after young AFL talent & his information is that it is a very significant concussion likely to keep him from playing for a while.
The club will surely not risk the young man's long term health so I wouldn't expect Tom to play the first half of the season if at all according to what I just heard. Sorry to bring that news folks.
