I think he will do the rehab first then see
True, but my reasoning is that if he goes the traditional route then we won't see him until 2020 pre-season if he goes on. And it's not unreasonable to suggest that he will be at risk doing his knee again at any point during 2020. As much as I want there to be a fairytale and see Johnson go around again. I think 6 knee reco's might be enough to say his body won't be reliable enough to play AFL at the highest level for a sustained period.

Don’t disagree at all.

I think we will have a better idea of which direction he will take when we hear if the club is going to re-rookie him or not. I don't imagine the club would waste the spot if he and his doctors didn't think he was up to going around again.

As opposed to yelling obscenities and throwing pieces of fruit? o_O

I have a theory..........he just hates training?
:rolleyes:

Or is a sadist and likes to watch others suffer? :eek:

No rush
Maybe he knows he can get on the turps on Friday night...who doesn't love that?
