    Re: Morris ACL!!!!

    If it is a full ACL do you think he would/should go for the LARS alternative if it is available?

    TIme is not on his side, but does anyone know how the LARS grafts do long term?

    We saw Goldsack come back for the finals. If I was him, I would go Lars

    Re: Morris ACL!!!!

    I am gutted for Moz, a fantastic person, a player of rare courage, selflessness, humility and determination. He has always made us so proud, and That Tackle (and let痴 not forget That Smother in Q3) of the Gf were both brilliant and so typically Dale.

    But ....this may be an unpopular opinion.... I don稚 share the belief that he can somehow play on. For all his famed resilience, the last few years have been so tough on his body. Should he really put himself and his family through the terrible grind of rehab for the very slight chance of everything going well enough for him to somehow at age 37 play on in 2020?

    I do somewhat agree, but if the club is hellbent on getting Picken back despite him not having recovered for over a year now I'm not sure they'll hold Morris back from the opportunity to return. I think he'll come back at the end of this season, and that'll be that.

    I do remember an article or interview from last year where he talked about his son, and how his son wasn't playing footy or something. He quoted his son as saying something along the lines of "I don't like football. Football hurts daddy". Smart kid.
    I should leave it alone but you're not right

    I can't see us winning the flag this year so I think the club should respectfully ask him to retire. Moz is also one of my all time favourite players so it's hard to see him go out this way but I think this is the time to find his replacement. If Moz wants to play on next year or a miracle he comes back this year we are simply delaying the development of the next Dale Morris.
    They've done studies you know, 60% of the time, it works every time!

    Devastating news at this stage of the season, but given it痴 moz he値l surely be back by round 9

    Does this mean Naughton moves permanently back?

    I'm worried about he flow-on effect on the group.
    Is there anyone on our list as respected and Moz? I remember Gia talking about Granty's ACL and how 'the arse fell out of the place' when he did it - we won the spoon that year. Morale is important and if saps the morale from the group we're in for a long season.

    The difference between then and now is huge.
    To qualify that difference I have just 2 words for you.

    wow been off line for a few days and come back to this devastating news. Moz will be severely missed, especially his experience and assistance with our younger players. Hopefully we see him back in the 2nd half of the season.
