Dom Tyson has suffered a partial dislocation of the patella tendon

I don't know what that is but it sounds pretty painful

Ouch, that sucks. According to ch7 he was running laps yesterday so it sounds like it's not too bad.

I've sprained my patella tendon before and it hurt so much I felt sick to my stomach. Did it walking down an escalator in the city and then had to walk up the steps into one of the old trams to get home. That was less than ideal and hurt almost as bad.

Solemn Sloth posted:

patella is the kneecap?, so I'd guess it's one of the tendons helping to move it

Yeah, it's the one that runs down the front of your knee. It's also the one JOM has all his issues with.

He tore his off the bone though so not really comparable to a partial dislocation

PYF 2 male players from your club to get a small writeup in the OP, here's my current thinking

EDDIEBETTS and Sloane

Schache and Rockliff

Cripps and Weitering

Pendlebury and Treloar (maybe Moore instead of one of these?)

Merrett and Daniher

Fyfe and Neale

GWS I don't even know because there's a fuckton, but maybe Heath Shaw and one of the ten really good mids they have, or a mid + Cameron?

Dangerfield and Selwood

Tom Lynch and Gary Ablett

Sam Mitchell and Jordan Lewis

Viney and Hogan

Goldstein and Daw

Gray and Wingard

Rance and Martin

Steven and Riewoldt?

Buddy and Kennedy

Kennedy and Shuey (would obviously include NicNat, but being out for most of the year seems a waste)

Bont and Bob(potentially Boyd instead of Bob)

I don't know, it depends what you are going for. Those are all good choices, then there is Gunston and Shiels, two players who will be very important for the next decade and both (I think) potential future captains.

Comedy option for the Saints: Do Steven and Stevens and then mix up the write ups a bunch. You could switch the pictures so they are on the wrong description and call them both Steven and Stevens in the write ups. It'll be like BT himself is contributing!

Edit: Or just do a single write up for 'Jack'.

Holy poo poo James Hird's dad is a conspiracy #standbyhird true-believer:

"The Guardian posted:

“A ‘conspiracy’ is probably the wrong word in a legal sense, but in the general public’s eye, I’d say a conspiracy between the Gillard government, the AFL and elements of the Essendon board, plus the Australian Anti-Doping Authority to get a result for something to get everyone out of a hole.

“The Gillard government had got itself into a hole ... overblew that crime commission report enormously and they needed something and they did that for political reasons. Both his employers were gunning for him but there was nothing specific he had ever done and there still isn’t.”

The man was stunningly well dressed. He had a smart looking jacket, and a really neat looking cape, the lining of which was shimmering and sparkling in more than Oriental splendour, which is a great deal of splendour indeed, just ask Kipling.

Yeah, Membrey would be a good one. Gresham I think might have a slow 2nd year and probably isn't quite good enough yet to have earned a write up as one of our key players to watch.

Unrelated: Along with Tyson hurting his knee, Christian Saleem apparently got a concussion...from dropping a brick on his head during some army style training drill that involved carrying bricks over long distances.

Let me start off with a basket of chips. Then move on to the pollo asado taco.

I'd go Merrett + Heppell ... but Daniher could be funnier.

Also, totally understand Papa Hird feeling the way he does, but not sure making a big deal out of it in the media is really going to help. Seems like Hird would benefit most from keeping a low profile (as low a profile as the media will let him have at least) and surrounded by those who love + want to support him until he feels well enough to do or say anything which involves the spotlight. So not sure those close to him lashing out now and fanning flames is really the right way to go. Then again, questioning whether something is the right way to go seems to be synonymous when talking about a Hird the past few years.

The video of it has the goal camera that shows him keep it in right up until he starts running and probably just barely takes it over. Im not sure what the rules are exactly after youve taken possession and are just running with it.

I don't care about that goal or anything, but the rules are just about whether or not the ball is in. If any of the ball is above the line, then it is in. The player has nothing to do with it.

My brother insists it was out, shouldn't have been a goal, and wasn't goal of the year. He also insisted that his 2015 goal of the year was an accident and a fluke, because it was meant to be a pass and only went through for a goal because it came off the side of the boot, and it shouldn't have been goal of the year.

Also, my brother is saltier than Lake Eyre :smug:
