Tigerlove it would be great(if not done already) by the AFL to see what impact those players had that went on to play good footy after an ACL.Between 1999 and 2013, 158 players had ACL knee reconstructions. 121 recovered to play AFL again. 48 players of the 158 suffered another ACL injury on either knee. This doesn't look at how well performed players were after their ACL.
Obviously we tend to remember the ones that did it again and even again.
The Tigers did have a few hard luck stories that were not the same.
I wish i had time to sit down and collate this information. I reckon it could provide some useful data for the AFL and clubs.
