Daw still on track for vfl after the bye?
If hes already been in full training for a few weeks and another 2-3 weeks of it then vfl?

I understand being conservative but if he’s moving fine then ease him in

U ve never had a pelvis injury have you? A serious one?
Here's the idea. It makes no difference if ive had one, or if you've had one, or if your best friend has had one. He's recovering. He's training. That is, for all intents and purposes, the direction to return to football. That is not G O N E as you so memelordishly put it. That's getting on with it.

You, with all your prophetic wisdom have declared it all for naught. Not happening. Love to see you try to tell that to his face by the way. You have nothing to base his recovery on other than what you reckon. Which seems to be worth fu** all.

How do we already know what’s wrong with Bails yet after two weeks we still have no idea about Hall?

Good to see we’ve made progress with Walker, Jacobs & McKenzie as well...:rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:

Yeah, the club should get off its arse and heal those injuries quicker.

It would just be nice to be informed. We are one of the only clubs with guys on the injury list for 6-12 months where we still don't have a gauge on when they'll be back.
They'll let us know when they can, or when it's relevant?

If they're on a long, slow road to recovery and the 'return to work' endpoint is a bit fuzzy, what's the point in updating? They do from time to time, and that's enough for me.

My attitude is that 'until they're ready to return, I don't need or care to know.' Clearly it's different for you, but I don't understand the apparent angst.

We have just sacked the coach, so now people have to find other things to pot the club over.

Also, based on the posts I have seen, we have a disproportionately high number of sports surgeons and doctors on Bigfooty to provide ongoing commentary on where the club has incorrectly diagnosed or treated injuries to players. If only the club doctors would put down their medical journals and come onto bigfooty for the real expertise, we wouldnt have these issues where players have injuries that the club is unsure of the recovery period.

That's your attitude, personally i'd like to know.

I’m tipping we won’t see a timeframe put on Daw at any stage because they won’t want to build the expectation that comes with that. It’ll just be indefinite right up to the week that he actually plays (if he does play at all this year). And I think that’s fine.
There is a time frame, because he's out of contract.

Give him a thorough physical at the end of the year and if they reckon he can get back to AFL footy, give him a season on the rookie list.

If they have doubts, he gets cut. We've already lost a year of football out of him from a non football related issue.
