I'm not sure where else to put this. I feel sorry for Sam, but am disappointed to see that he's suing the Club. I would've hoped that the Crows did everything they could to help him. But maybe they put Club before player? Time will tell.

Ex-Adelaide Crow Sam Shaw has launched legal action against his former club after retiring in 2016 due to concussion.

Didn’t the club keep him on the books for a year so he could qualify for the new players insurance package? Unless the club made him go out and play against instructions to the contrary, I fail to see how they can be sued.

Interesting looking back at our decision to keep him on the list for that extra year

We were trying to mitigate something like this happening?

We left him on the list an extra year so he could access the new health and welfare benefits right? the thanks you get I guess...

There are going to be so many of these cases going forward, with law firms circling any players who have retired under similar circumstances.

Everyone involved would have insurance to handle such cases?

I'm no lawyer but does insurance cover you for negligence?

He’s claiming negligence in its management.

Perhaps the club weren’t being nice guys when they rookied him, and it was more an arse covering excercise.

Either way I’m sure we will hear more in due course.
