We have recent history of cutting blokes after only 12 months.

Narrier, Hartung, Morgan and Taylor 4 examples off the top of my head
All true but we very rarely cut injured players off a contract like this from memory. Which I'm pretty comfortable with if only as a show of good faith to the entire playing group.

And everyone will label us "the best team out of the 8". Oh, happy days.
Last year I think people rated Essendon over us. Everyone got a massive boner for Adelaide too over the pre-season which was funny because they added no one ready to make and immediate impact and got even older.

Yep, it's an enormous **** up by the club. Will be over 12 months before he plays again.

How do we know it's a **** up? Could just be a very complicated injury and/or complications could have arisen which were unforeseeable after the original injury.

Jack Riewoldt on the radio said the other day that while he's looking at about two months for his PCL injury, he's very aware that sometimes PCLs don't heal as planned and he could be out for longer.

When Jacks out for the best part of 12 months then we'll know his PCL hasn't quite 'healed as planned'
