First of all did you all really expect Elliott & Moore won’t do hammies again ( note: it will happen to Moore soon)
Look on the bright side, the Blues already have two down with ACLs.

Unless he's gone for scans - and we'll hear about it if he does or has, because the media are always all over that - it may just be precautionary or part of his program. There's need to go all Henny Penny after one unsubstantiated media report.

Sadly, we have quite a few on this board who love "to go all Henny Penny"! Some of them are not seen that often these days, but this sort of story invariably sees them show up again!

I dont care who someone plays for I'd much rather see no young person have something they worked so hard for taken from them because of their body not being up too it. Dont be so selfish it's just a game and having known what depression can do to myself and witnessing others go through, I would never want others to be in any position like that. Get some morals champ.

The report said he was going for scans.

Any hamstring concern for Elliott however minor or even de Goey can't be brushed aside with a quip about it being the best time of year for one to occur as our recent run with injury would suggest it's never a good time for a soft tissue injury at Collingwood.

Don’t worry there’s more than enough that jump to attention and play down any and all issues.

IMO, those that are more glass half empty are a symptom of environment. Elliott or Moore have scares/ issues and there’s a reaction. Durable guys like Phillips or Crisp have a similar issue and it barely raises an eyebrow.

In this case you have a guy with an extreme history of hamstring recurrence injuries leaving the track early so for mine there’s something there. The article didn’t acknowledge scans, outside the byline of an image, however I take more from Walsh speaking of a return to training after the break and not denying it. That’s not the language I’d use about a guy who was fine...

But but they went to Germany...

You people will swallow any garbage the club spits out.
Until there is a systematic clean out from head to toe of fitness staff, nothing will change.
And some people simply can't leave the club free from criticism on any point.

Something needs to change, post haste. We cannot expect to have a similar run with injuries and make a grand final again.

Either fix the ground, training regime, and/or game plan or trade out the injury prone players for some that are more durable.

If Jamie has another hamstring problem - and its not confirmed - but if he has, then maybe its not the fault of the club or the medical/rehab team or the training environment or anything else we can control. Maybe he has a chronic and complex problem which the club has thrown everything at to try and fix, and its still 'wait and see' for 2019.

The fact that the club offered, and he ended up accepting, a one year contract extension kind of indicates this.

I hope they don't accelerate his program too soon. I'd rather we take our time with him and have him available for rd 15 onwards rather than rd 1. Slowly increase the work load and have him as a weapon inside 50 closer to finals time.

With almost a month off until training resumes, he will be fine.
