Perhaps that's true, I think it would have been worse if the repaired knee failed, but I'm still nervous for him. The two knees were done in pretty innocuous fashion, particularly the second, so it's going to take a while for me to be calm about it.Hope he gets a fair run at it now, cant wait to see what he can do.
I would imagine after doing an ACL injury to both knees would lessen the chance of it happening again compared to if it just happened on the 1 knee as you wouldnt be favouring a particular side, if you get what i mean..
Mine is "Happy little clouds" painter Bob Ross posing as Ash from Evil Dead. It represents Collingwood's ability to create something beautiful then horribly butcher it at the first opportunity. Symbolism is groovy.
His last reco isn't anything to go by though. He missed the entire preseason and started in the VFL late after his first reconstruction.Will have a slow start to the season if his last reco is anything to go by.
Need to be patient
It took him quite a while to mentally get into the game, regardless of fitness. He was timid, slow and uncompetitive in many contests even at the start of games (his first few VFL games back). Mentally I would expect he'll need a few months of games before he gets the confidence in his body to perform at his best, I don't know whether coming back from a 2nd reco is harder or easier mentally... he'll have the experience but now he has both knees in the back of his mind.His last reco isn't anything to go by though. He missed the entire preseason and started in the VFL late after his first reconstruction.
He's been in full training since August in this case. He should be tons fitter and have a lot more match sim/practice under his belt this time around.
