Shep is one of the good ones. I hope he gets through this.
You dont get thru this, it just gets worse.
What is a shame is that "the game" doesnt make the eradication of avoidable head injury the highest priority .
The "head is sacrosanct" chant of a couple of years ago is all but forgotten.
Head hits are judged on outcome not the action .
Need to judge the risk in the action and its avoidability.

I can't recall Sheppard having a series of concussions but im probably wrong.

Was the hit really bad? I can't recall the incident

Yeah nah Sheppard went for the ball and later admitted it should have been a free against him.

I think you are judging him unfairly.

The accidents only seem to go one way
Sheppard, Brander
Le Cras dropping Johnson with his forearm guard to the chest
Nic Nat breaking Sandilands ribs
Kennedy charging Chapmans shoulder after he came back on

Jeff Farmer at MCG today for Melbourne’s premiership celebrations. The club did a great job of honouring past players. Think the 2000 GF Squad was mostly there

Jake Lever collapses at training…
Anti Vaxxers: I told you! It’s here, the jab will affect all athletes.
Meanwhile, McCarthy collapses two pre seasons ago. Pavlich from memory passed out.

It was awesome when Shepard took a mark in the backline you could go have a piss , grab a beer , make some 2 minute noodles and be back before they finished chipping it around the backline

He was worse than Lee Spur as far as being a blackhole of attacking intent

Hopefully he got out in time , Fyfey is walking a fine line
