What is Joe, 24? Out for another year? Types like him come around rarely, his career at risk, espesh as it looks like the injury has been mishandled.

Bombers a different side with him in.

Brown and McKernan are back or about to be. Played fine in the 2nd half of the year with them.

Is it ideal? No.

But **** me look at how other clubs deal with injuries compared to us.
I know. You’re right. I don’t believe it’s actually over. We have issues with managing injuries though. McKernan is kind of injury prone.

Theres a lot of radio/media talk this is down to poor management and rushing him back possibly, and overworking him before ready.

Thoughts on this? Could be legit because OP which he had originally is an overuse/overwork instability injury and the best treatment involves significant rest.

Shown plenty of potential but I read he's 25 now, best part of 2 seasons missed due to an injury like that has to be seen as worrying

Double shit sandwich for the Bombers with Smith and Daniher out.

I don't know if Robbo will sell it as a positive or a negative but losing those guys isn't really derailing anything at this point.

I would think the EFC would be cautious of applying some the injury treatments employed by other clubs, especially the recovery injections.
Sad and unfounded, but if it is the case this could contribute to injury management and recovery.

That's sh!t. He's a very exciting, and actually, pretty good player (gets a lot of negative jabs from opposition supporters) - playing for one of the big 'glamorous' clubs. He's an exciting part of the current AFL landscape. Yeah, he's not as good a player as his media coverage deserves, but any 6-6 guy who can take big marks and kick goals is great for the game.

That sucks. Memo to Essendon. How about instead of 'managing his return to football' - how about waiting until he's absolutely fully-fit (ie - ready to play week-in, week-out) before bringing him back next time?

That being said, it's less of a loss than if hed been playing and dominating, hes been out of the side and not at peak. It's not as if they just lost a player that's been dominating and winning games for them for 2 years, they have barely had him so this hurts less than it usually would.

It's a lesser loss than losing someone critical to them recently like Devon Smith or Michael Hurley.

Others will know more, but that rushing him back for the Good Friday game instead of just bringing him back via the reserves seems like a big misjudgment in hindsight.
