    Yep.. didn't see any head contact in it. He remains a list liability. Has trade value now though.

    Agree didn't look like a head clash. Very injury prone in more ways than one.

    Very concerning he needs to go to hospital after hits like that.

    Another concussion any time soon and he needs to think about retirement, no joke

    It's a worry for him. I would be surprised if they sit him for the rest of the year. Has had a few now. Can't believe I'd ever say this but we missed his run tonight

    It's a real shame. Always been a fan. But needs to consider life after football now.

    Just stop that nonsense and let's hope the kid is OK. Can't say he didn't gave it all, whatever way he did it

    Pray for Benny. He's had a good month and missing him tonight hurt us a bit.

    Didn't even look like the head got a knock. Hope he is ok. If he is getting a concussion from shoulder contact he needs to retire forfor his own good.

    Wont waste anymore of my time on you. You know what irony means right? Calling me a keyboard hero after you bagging one of our best players over last month for putting his body on the line. Weak as piss!!!

    Hope it's not the case but strongly needs to consider retiring, maybe have the year off and come back.

    Absolutely agree.

    For a player with a history of concussions to suffer such an innocuous brain injury requiring hospitalisation is terrifying and retirement should be looked at as ensuring quality of life post football rather than early career ending (similar to Caracalla)

    All the best to the lad I genuinely hope he recovers and can stay healthy!

    You didn't have to waste any time on me in the first place bud.. I don't rate your opinion or want to hear it so why'd you bother? But for what it's worth... He got himself injured AGAIN for no reason in the first 15 minutes. He attacked the man, not tackling, not getting the ball and knocked himself out in the first 15 minutes and we play the rest of the match with a man down. He is serially injured and a liability on our list. If he got injured laying a tackle or doing something useful for the team then you might have a point. Another year.. and Sinclair will spend half of it in the sick bay like he does every other year. He's not that good.. and this is exactly what makes him a list liability. Good luck having a settled back 6 with him in the best 22!

    He needs to seriously think if it's worth it.

    Worst ground to lose him, was badly missed until we switched Varcoe back. Hope it's not an ongoing issue.

    You're talking as though he intentionally got himself concussed. Don't be ridiculous.

    This is about Ben and his welfare not posters bitching at each other.

    Your post was shithouse mate. I hope that was just your frustration because it did you no credit at all.

    Take a rest mate. I think you really need a lie down and think about stuff.

    From front on it looks like he hit his chin/check on the North player's shoulder

    Hope he doesn't have to retire. Been the best month of footy I've seen from a Collingwood player this year. Hunter retired for us with something similar?

    How many concussions has ben had? Isnt it after a certain amount you are forced to retired?

    I really liked bens past month, but 95 percent of the afl wouldnt of been concussed from that hit..
