Ben who???
Reasonable question all things considered and there may well be some newer fans that haven't even seen him play wondering why all the fuss and angst to see him return.

i thought it timely to take a look back myself and everyone should be looking forward to having this highly respected team leader and contributor available for selection again.

Some may wonder how or if he gets a game but if he gets fit and finds form at VFL lvl, he'll be straight in I'm guessing.

I can do without that sort of stuff.
Let's take it as read that our coaches and staff aren't psychopaths with no concern with player's future mental and physical welfare.

With that off the table, maybe we focus the message on the football prospects of the players and group.

What Rhyce has said isn't bad nor has he said anything wrong, but after 10 years of Brad's welfare messaging without much performance messaging to counterbalance it I can appreciate your angle.

What with all the secrecy?

Is it concussion or depression?

It's very weird that we have been told basically nothing about what is going on with this

You wonder if it was really that bad, why he wasn’t put on the Long Term Injury List. Pick up O’Neill with pick 83 or rookie draft. Walker in SSP
