OR, are they too scared to admit the training/playing system is at fault.

Tragic - regarding Stephen Hill. My thoughts exactly. In regard to the bulking up, I think back to the Essendon supplements period under "the Weapon" when they suddenly all bulked up and then went through a spate of serious soft tissue injuries.

Looking at a range of sports - especially athletics - there seems to be very few endurance sports that promote bulk muscle mass, which seems universally restricted to burst and sprint events, where preparation and fatigue can be carefully controlled.

Even in American football, the big guys are burst players and subbed or rested frequently through rotations and breaks. Soccer players don't carry this muscle.

There may be no research, but anecdotally, it might be suggested that muscle bulk can become a potential liability over time in a sport like footy. I'd love to see some research in this area. Freo could provide a solid sample population for the initial study ...

But, the big bodied midfielder is the way forward for footy, no need for small forwards, rovers or KPP & ruckmen. Just recruit or build 22 big bodied midfielders.

The mismanagement team have struck again. According to the AFL injury update, Stepen Hill is basically gone for the year and Cox has had a setback in his hip injury recovery and is out for another three weeks. So two week became five?
Top men.

I reckon that Gold Coast offer would be looking pretty good to Stephen right about now, if he goes we can probably say goodbye to Brad as well.

GC Medicos will be licking their lips getting hold of a skilled athlete like Stephen Hill for nothing.
GIve him a rest on the GC beaches over Summer, strip the weight off and watch him become the next S Burgoyne and play another 150 games.
If he stays with Freo he will become a list clogger and be lucky to play a handful of games half fit and lame

I noticed yesterday everyone's favourite journalist had Lobb out, probably for the season.
Today Ross is expecting Lobb to play this weekend.
Assuming everyone is speaking the truth, the FFC medical staff are miracle workers.

Miracle workers?

Well, it's that or they're all drunk at work and ready to sign anything RolyPoly puts in front of them

So RoLy didn't know that the captain of his footy team was hospitalised with elbow gout before declaring him as a certain starter for the Sydney game, and now he expects Luke Beveridge to scramble around for a match-up for Lobb.

Hahaha, the next thing he'll try and baloney everyone with is a 2020 GF victory. Is he going to list Stephen Hill again?
