If he's likely to be out for the season then it's probably a fib/tib break.

I remember that happening at training in junior footy, everyone telling the guy to get up because he was always complaining, and he was the tackler in this case

Hugh Goddard did this to Josh Bruce in a marking contest after he'd recovered from a stress fracture in his back. No wonder he got the boot.

It's probably a big enough deal that we'll be fringe finalists at best.

Pretty bold statement to say that the club that has won a premiership on average every 4.5 years over the last half century is “not cursed” imo

JOM is an invulnerable tank. Like many other members of the current Hawthorn team, his legs can not possibly be damaged.

I reckon I’ve seen it more than that, It helps that it’s on high rotation on Fox Footy over the summer.

The grand final Footy Record is pretty worn out as well, and the Footy Almanac will be soon. Being reigning premiers owns, extend the off-season IMO

He snapped his achilles, its like one of the worst injuries you can do and only a small percentage of people really recover from then enough. If he manages to get games in Carlton's team then good on him but he has four able bodied defenders in front of him at the Saints.

Was on the facebooks earlier today even before they confirmed a full break that the ambulance was at Waverley for half an hour before leaving. Knew it was a bad one as soon as I read it.

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.






Hey AFL thread I just saw an Aussie Rules related film called The Merger (it's out in cinemas I think but the cinema I saw it in was one of those tiny community cinemas or whatever so I don't know if it's actually a recent film but I think it is) but anyway it's one of the best and funniest Australian made films I've seen and it's sort of about Aussie Rules and I recommend it to you all.

Also it contains Aaron Gocs from that show Bump.

EDIT: I looked it up and apparently it was released in September last year but anyway it's grouse.

:qq::qq::qq::qq::qq::qq::qq:

my cousin snapped his forearm a few months ago at footy training when he clashed with another kid, they both got knocked out and he fell while holding the ball against his body which in turn broke both bones in his forearm when he hit the ground. he had to have pins put in his arm but theyre not taking well and one of the screws is coming loose so he needs further surgery and it will have him out over a year at this point. its a shame as the kid is like 16/17 and a gun footy player in his country league so hes having to cool his jets a lot and focus on rehab etc

“The x-rays confirmed two clean breaks to the tibia and fibula bones and Tom will undergo surgery this weekend to repair them,” said Makdissi.

“The positive news for Tom is that there are no other associated injuries and as such it is just a matter of waiting for the bones to heal.

“Once this occurs, we will be in a better position to dictate the speed of Tom’s rehabilitation and ultimately his return to the playing field.”

Well that’s good, I guess.

I mean at least it's a clean tib-fib break. Could have been so much worse if it wasn't.

No displacement from the sounds of things, that's quite good. Little to no tendon damage if that's the case.

Yeah I was expecting it to be like Nathan Brown where the break hosed up the tendon along with almost poking out of the skin.
