Has said on Triple MMM Footy, that he tore his calf just after Vlaustin got knocked out, but had to keep playing.

Amazing effort from him.
plays for the team, deserves another year. I think Dimma did indicate that at his press conference.

My respect for this bloke knows no bounds.

If lists are cut by the AFL, he's a classic example of a 'player-coach' in waiting.

Why not give him a mentoring role next season?

Apart from being measured and articulate, he is the ultimate standard-setter.

These blokes don't grow on trees.

Courageous to play out the game but probably should have been a very late out before the game. I’m the pregame warm up (right in front of me on the wing) he was having his calf massaged by the trainer. Very lucky this did not backfire on us.

That wouldn't be unusual for someone with a history of calf issues to be doing pre-game.

Even an injured Bachar never left anything on the park such was his commitment to the Tiger cause. I wonder if this latest calf issue will be a precursor for him to decide to retire? after all he has nothing else to prove on the field, at the club and as a person

Hate hearing Calf injury in older players, once they start popping they seem to keep popping.

Yep Markov should have played. Not great from Bach if he knew it was iffy before the game.
He did say he'd had the same feeling twice in the last six weeks but it never bothered him before. He would have pulled out if he thought he was injured pre game

Champion. Played out the game. Few players make it to the end of the season 100% and no one knows when injury will hit.

We'll never win 4 Premierships with players like Houli in our team

Just saw on the bottom of my TV that he's saying he's close to another deal. :)

There’s 2 Champions of the club who I think should be really well managed next year and that’s Houli and Reiwoldt, the soft tissues are starting to become common for Houli and Jacks starting to show signs of been a pack crashing key forward for over 250 games , all been well I’d like to see them play 2/3s of the season.
