Not sure, they do the review after the game and you have to submit any information about injury outcomes as part of that, not sure if they can open it back up later.

But if Grimes' concussion was known on Saturday that would be included in that process, but I guess it is hard for the MRP to identify an incident if the club and player can't.

That's another very curious thing, there's no way we would be trying to protect a player if they caused a concussion so it is quite bizarre we haven't identified an incident on that basis as well.

This is a very strange situation and I can't work out exactly why.
Some years ago we were named by Adelaide after the MRP review as having a player that caused a concussion injury to one of their’s.
Can’t remember the detail
In this case the cause of the impact is reasonably certain. I would have thought Hocking should have taken the initiative and conducted his own (MRP) investigation.

I don't think they'll be in strife but I also don't think they have done their best work on this one, during and after the game

Look, everyone is entitled to an opinion. But gee, for any of us to sit and judge our medical team - to the point of actually saying you dont believe they have done their best work on this - without really knowing the circumstances, i think is a bridge too far. I am happy to listen to another doctor have a view of this, but knowing people with concussion or major headaches, there really is so many ways it can happen, including delayed concussion. I cant see how anyone here can make a call such as 'they havent done their best work on this one'.

This was

Saw that and I hope it was the essendunce guy from last year. If this is a new one Grimesy may start to reconsider his options. No one deserves this crap!
Seems like there were two dirt bags.
One guy fronted court last year n copped a diversion notice. Apparently this bloke wants the same treatment from the courts, but he also somehow had accessed a maggots phone number n abused him a few times as well. According to the channel 7 report the magistrate wants some contact n info from the victims regarding this dirt bag before he decides on a diversion or heftier penalty.

Serious counselling and mental health assessments required for these types.

I was concussed once.
walked off the ground absolutely fine, with only the help of 2 trainers supporting / holding up my jelly legs,iso i can attest to that the player is the last to know.
I didnt even know there had been a dustup over my prone body.
Lead to CHF, jumped up to reach the ball at its highest point only to be thumped from in front.
I wouldve gone back onto the field and told everyone to put me back on

Hope Grimesy is alright
I got knocked out once.
Woke up for 10 seconds in the rooms to tell the doc, yes I know who you are.
Woke up in the ambulance for 5 seconds.
Woke up on a gurney in the hospital.
What's your name? (Easy. Not eZy, spook.)
What's the date? (Had to think about it.)
What happened? (Thought some more... "I got hit?")
MRI.
Home. Sleep.
For the next six weeks, every time I tried to run or even jarred a foot slightly, I felt it in my brain.
Concentration shot.
Wanted to sleep constantly.
Not right for months.
Played late in the season. Tentative af, until I got clipped in the head and remained upright.
Had my best year of footy the following year.
Some think I'm still not right.

I got king hit by Lionel Roses 'little' brother in the North City Hotel when I was 16.

a big anvil full of biker skull rings swung from the shoulder, with a locked elbow, after a 2.9 sec 20m, landed right on the ear from behind.

everything went white and quiet, but I kept my feet.

After they stitched my ear back together and back on,

I behaved perfectly normally (admittedly, there were limited base-line data at this stage) and felt no discernible ill-effects, other than a deformed throbbing ear, and a fixation on the 1968 bantamweight title fight.

ive never lost consciousness (touching wood), not even when an outlawed lesbian gang with matching tear tattoos performed a vasectomy on me.

mystery concussion? pffffft

We aren't talking about Herbie are we mate? I got a kick hit from him once myself at a party in the Rat giving me a nice black eye. I ran with the boys from the East so he soon found out not the smartest thing to do and was pulled up quick smart by his crew. We went on to be quite good mates over years but I can certainly remember his left hook!

Yep, herbie rose. I dont think impulse control was his strong suit?

if we started a facebook support group 'survivors of herbie's king hit', I reckon we could sell ads for organic ginseng and sudoko puzzle books.

if he had belted the right bloke, he would have 100% deserved it.

I think Lionel fought at about 65kg, while Herbie was probably closer to 95?

it was my left ear that he exploded, and I was facing away, so it was certainly that left hook.

If I did donate my brain to science,

I think they'de find a pretty lumpy growth ring in 1987,

amongst a suite of other anomalies

The other anomalies would keep the docs preoccupied for a bit

Just on the North Star it's a bloody treat nowadays just reopened late last year after being closed for a while. I'm good friends with quite a few of the North Star gift crew. They still have an annual get together. A few staunch fellow tiger supporters amongst them also. I loved the Sunday Sessions at the Star and the bare knuckles entertainment inside and out. Our crew would wander over from the Meaghers hotel. Late 70s to mid 80s. WILD DAYS!

I spent many long nights locked inside The North Star,

but Herbie belted me in the North CITY,

which was no place for a 16 year old boy in the 80's.

I think its a car yard now?

Yes is a car yard nowadays. Ballarat Show time was bare knuckles and boots between the Showies and a few locals. The publican from them days now has the Millars Arms and is a mad tiger supporter!

I played for North Ballarat, so you used to win a bar tab at 'The City' if you played well in the U14's

I played a lot of pool in the Millars too.

thats the thing with 'Ol Ballarat, there was a myriad of options for misspending your youth.
