There can be only one...
I wouldn't take too much notice, he's labeled Pittard as an elite kick!
His short-range kicking was pretty good, if he sticks with that and hits targets I think he will be more useful than other guys we have played down back who couldn't consistently hit blokes 30m away by foot.

I saw this at the time and thought it would end this way. A classic 1 match penalty for any player that isn't well known. It was pretty textbook - I'm not sure any tackle can completely avoid the chance of a head knock. Stiff IMO.

If there is any consistency we are going to see a couple of suspensions in almost every match from this time onwards.

Better to ban tackles and bring in rock paper scissors from AFLX to decide disputed ball situations.

This infuriates me. Might as well go work on an oil rig. Lets cut wood, nail stuff, and lift heavy items in our free time...what could possibly go wrong :drunk:
The intense side-job might actually help their football. Fwiw Spud held a job on an oil rig and flew choppers when he could. But he said the nightlife nearly drove him round the bend.

Hopefully Mason Wood works there. Think of the marketing opportunity...the puns...the sexy tradie calendar we could sell to our members.

As a believer in the ancient Chinese philosophy of Yin and Yang I think if you put Mason and Garner in a dangerous environment it might actually cancel out their injuries - 2 wrongs making a right. Either that or we can turn it into 'Final Destination 7' with Garner pulling a hammy whilst putting on his hard hat :drunk:
