#18 Michael Hurley


#9963

Makes dumb kicking decisions each week - or more correctly, executes poorly each week on occasions. Some days he gets away with it, other days like yesterday, he didn’t.
Expect more from a two time all Austn.


#9964

He was seen to be taking Ventolin many times throughout the game. It may not have been injury but a chest complaint that was affecting him.


#9965

Probably spot on, at one point he was 5 metres from the bench and motioned to get off. Must have needed the ventolin.


#9966

ASADA to investigate?


#9967

Yeah, I saw that and was wondering what was happening. It looked concerning.


#9968

Probably suffers from a bit of Asthma


#9969

Ah ha. That explains it. Ambrose usually went to Gunston and kept him under control, and a fully fit Hurls should have held him to 2 or less.

Having said that, both Hepp and Zaharakis also had off days.


#9970

John Basically admitted Hepp was carrying, and was far from his best.


#9971

He seems to get the ventolin before the start of the quarter, he came out after half time doing the warm up and already looked stressed out with his hands on his hips.

The trainer then came past with the venolin.


#9972

I’ve never heard of Mick being asthmatic.

Flu / Respiratory infection maybe?


#9973

I often use Ventolin before and during exercise as a preventative measure


#9974

Realistically both Hurley and Francis both struggled in their roles - Sometimes you switch roles and it works but not to be today.


#9975

Has had a dirty season


#9976

I would have said up & down.

Same thing?? :smirk:


#9977

Been in an out of favour I think


#9978

Maybe MH has that upper chest infection, it is everywhere up here on the far south coast of NSW. Like a very heavy cold that can quickly become bronchitis. Its a viral infection, antibiotics will not work.

Our family are down past Geelong everyone either has it or has had it.


#9979

Well why play him?


#9980

Not sure if srs


#9981

We live in Geelong and my daughter isn’t an asthmatic…yet. But she’s had a cough for 3 weeks and Ventolin has been awesome.


#9982

Seems like everyone has turned into pazza.

Anyone has the slightest health or injury issue, you don’t play.

Most players are carrying something, particularly at this time of year.
