The 25-year-old suffered a kick to the calf in a training drill and looks set to miss between four to five weeks as he recovers.
In a word, f*** IT...I know that`s two words but you get my gist...is he ever going to get a good run at it??? :evil:

It’s terrible for Joe. What should be his prime years are turning to dust.

Terrible for the team.

I am really not sure what to make of this pre season. Calamity comes to mind.

So many injury concerns and players having interrupted preseasons.

Let’s see if Worsfold can get this team firing. I have a bad feeling though.

Well Joe's Mo starred in today's Captains Picture (instead of Hepp's locks).

As my mum would say, "at least he scrubs up well".

Unfortunate for Joe, but IMO, a good thing for the team...

They were talking of playing him on restricted minutes before this happened, why?

Either he’s fit or not...if managed minutes, chuck him in the Magoos until he is fit enough to run out a game...

Spot on. Never has someone who has achieved so little in an AFL team had so much exposure as a brand icon. He just damn well looks the part and that makes him an instant legend..No one seems to care if he plays or not. Hes always there somewhere.😆

How does a kick to the calf equate to a 4-5 week injury? What a load of shit.
I suspect they may not be telling us the truth but you absolutely can do that, I missed 2 months with a calf strain after copping an errant kick on it at full stretch. I know a bloke who's calf was ripped off by a kick playing soccer.
Yeah, I copped a kick to the calf once too. Nasty bruise showed up. Same when I copped a vicious Shane Harwood thunderbolt to the thigh...

Trying my best to not be cynical/skeptical about this latest injury to Joe. Is there a chance his OP has flared again after the JLT series and it’s being kept quiet for the sake of optics?

Was he brought back too early for the JLT? A 5 to 6 week calf injury seems extreme. He described it himself as just a little “nick”.

Well yes considering the description he gave it himself I suspect that too though I see now that the club strongly denies it

Do I sense a lack of player / injury welfare creeping into the club? We used to get quite a lot of “training” injuries at Windy Hill before the decision to create the Tullamarine complex. Now we’re seeing it all over again...

Haha, yes!

How many knees and broken bones were sustained at training at Windy Hill towards the end?? Thanks for reminding me #-o

This doesn’t explain the new facility though. The extra “2% improvement” in player fitness is coming into question!
