So when he had 5 weeks off last year after round 16 that was really only 2? Rewriting history to suit your own argument seems somewhat a tough task.Because they kept playing him despite it being painfully obvious he was playing injured, and when he did miss games he only missed one or two before being back in the side. St Kilda had Hannebery out for almost 10 months before they played him the first time, not 2 weeks like Longmire tried.
Anyway Longmire doesn’t make the calls on injured players that would be the medical team having some input.
No doubt you will argue that the medical team would tick off things with no duty of care etc.
