Put a fork in him
I only know what I've read in the media but there are a few aspects of his injuries that possibly support what you are saying.Actually, I found myself feeling a bit sorry for Bennell, then I thought of the opportunity he was given in the beginning and without knowing anything about what he allegedly did or didn't do at both the GC and freo.....
Maybe he just didn't do what's required of a professional sportsman right from the start.
Possibly @The Big Richo has a better idea on this type of injury?
He's like the latest poster boy to draftees on what can happen if you don't at least give yourself the best chance to succeed!
Haaarrrrggh. There's only half a dozen or so players been pinged for violating the drug code so way to small a sample to come to any conclusions. Unless of course you include Essendrugs none taking of any illegal drugs, n we all know how many injury issues blew their players up during the second half of that year.I wonder if anyone has done a study on the frequency of soft tissue injuries to players known to have violated the drug code previously.
Didn't we do similar with the Fish last year. Picked him up on the cheap while injured n tucked him away till a late handful of VFL games set him up to mind **** everyone in the Grannie.They are holding him back till after the bye..............................................
