I'll play devil's advocate-

We're keeping Benny J on the list as part of a concussion agreement to pay out an agreed contact. Dere tis.
Nope. You don't have to be on the list in order to pay someone. If we'd established that he's not going to play, he'd be off the list.

He is on the list for one reason and one reason only, we expect him to play.

You could however dispute our expectations...

Would love the AFL to follow the NFL and make accurate reporting on injuries mandatory.
Without Taz in the preseason changes a lot. He is absolutely crucial to our backline and he is going to take a while to get fully fit again in 2020

From reports Polec hasn’t been training much at all this pre-season. Again, he is so important in our side and I fear won’t be ready for round 1 or longer, but who knows?

Even our captain is more important than we think. His aggression and pressure he brings is what other players look up too

In saying all this, I think we have built some decent depth and set the standard high where before we always struggled to cover injuries. This will really show our true colours

Howe do you know that they aren't just on management programs mate?

You’re right I’m only speculating on what reports were made on here

Taz went into foot surgery last Thursday though
That’s the frustrating part. We can only speculate. Of all the things the AFL try to rip off from American sport, I don’t get why they don’t adopt the mandatory reporting of injuries.
