In other words, they erred in thinking the injury would get better with rest and instead of getting surgery out of the way 2 months back, Jamie will now only have a partial pre-season and not be at his best next year. Great injury management yet again from the club.

Hopefully just a scope and a cleanout. Billy had a lateral sprain at one point, didn’t he? Anterior capsular impingement might fit with the history in that case. Any ligaments needing to be tightened and I’d struggle to see him back within the timeframe provided.

He would probably rather his holiday time I guess.

The club tells lies. They lied about the purpose of the scan, or at best, distorted the truth about it. They are also no doubt lying about his expected return date. If he has been hobbling about since the AFL season on one leg, he is hardly going to be ready to go in 6 weeks time after surgery.

We have done this many times before haven't we? Can't remember the player but it was pretty recent when we didn't send him in for surgery and then we realised oh **** he needs surgery.

Whoever is managing this aspect of the club needs to be sacked. Why don't we ever learn from past mistakes?

It seems time and again we mismanage players injuries. Surely we should have opted for surgery at end of season so he could at least be ready for some of preseason.

Given the lack of transparency on the nature of injuries it's hard to see Elliott having a pre season at all.

I don’t think we know enough to say if he was mismanaged or not. But it sure is terrrible news. Our most important forward. Gah! I don’t expect to see him playing in the early rounds as others have suggested.

Haha yeah right, if he’s back at training by the end of January I’ll eat my members hat.
"From full training until the New Year"

So surgery then some training by around the middle of Jan. (No doubt other will read "New Year" as any time next year & state the club was right, ******s)

I declare your bet.....
