Absolutely pathetic management of a prize asset. Might as well write off half Daniher’s year now. Will take him a minimum of 3 to 4 to get up and running after he is fit.

Effectively 18 months of his career ruined by poor management. Poor by player and club.


#9179

please in detail explain why its bad management?

im a bit naive on this stuff…


#9180

I’m puzzled. How do you miss 6 weeks with a “kick” to the calf?

Fk me.


#9181

Feel for Joe. The lad just wants to play!

How can anyone be bagging the club for poor management though?

He’s had the fkkkknnn slowest build up ever and they have backed him off at any sign of soreness in the groins (which this also could be!)

Injuries happen in footy and this one just one of those things. Perhaps even because he’s been out so long and the ramping up of playing /training didn’t cope with.

In any case I know I was worried about our fwd structure with an underdone JD in it. Now he will he forced to be ready to go perhaps even with 2’s games, and our very strongly functioning fwd line of the latter half of last year can be back again.


#9182

maybe they are trying the old “tell em its 6 weeks and everyone will be excited when he’s back earlier than that?”


#9183

I’ve seen worse kicks to the calf.


#9184

might have to change the thread title here.

5 weeks, lets us put smack in the team which i like.

And hopefully Daniher gets right.

I Still wonder if it is a calf, or OP or want to give him a mini preseason as he wasnt quite up to scratch in the JLT.


#9185

Both our bookends out with serious calf injuries. Lid on.


#9186

Why were they ■■■■■■■ playing him in the ruck the last two weeks?


#9187

For someone that knows nothing, you sure talk a lot of ■■■■.


#9188

Step 1 - Get OP
Step 2 - Recover from OP
Step 3 - OP Flares up again
Step 4 - Tell club doctor
Step 5 - Doctor kicks you in the calf
Step 6 - Doctor reports “kick to calf”.


#9189

If it was just a kick to the calf, then it’s hardly a case of mismanagement by the club.

edit: in light of @samwoods’ post above, it damn well IS a case of mismanagement FFS


#9190

Yep. Playing him in the ruck was smart.


#9191

RIP Joe
See you in 2020


#9192

On a positive note this will give him more time to get his groin right


#9193

How does a 25yo do a fkn calf injury anyway? It’s an old man injury


#9194

And then he’ll do a hammy which will give him more time to get his calf right etc etc…


#9195

Or it’s his groin that isn’t right and we’re lying about the calf, which we’ve been known to do in the past with ‘knocks to the calf’. That would be my guess
