Cotchin was being very very kind saying he was only 25% AFL Fit
Very kind

The hopeful thing is that when Stack is in the right environment, he will crack in to the point of regularly spewing.

Hoping that the environment is supportive enough for him to regularly spew before starring in his first finals series for RFC.

I’m sure his team mates and other tiger personnel would prefer that young Sydney cleans up after himself.

Don’t think Giuseppe wants that job too!

Back in the bosom of Tigerland......couldn't be a better place for the young man. Its up to Sydney now. To the watchers - Was he giving it a fair dinkum crack?

!Breaking News!

nobody man thinks Sydney Stack is lazy and has no redeeming features for the 27th time, while Club stays entirely invested and positive

what an extraordinary scoop

Watched him train today
Mmmmmmmmm
I watched Stacky today too and it's nothing less than you would have expected at this stage, not even worth commenting on his fitness or otherwise at this point as we all knew he would be a long way off.
I'll be more watching to see if Syd is giving or receiving any love from his team mates as proof he has been embraced back into the fold.
At the moment he looks a bit sheepish to be back, not the usual cockiness or smiles, (which is not surprising).
Being the only one in rehab today he cast a bit of a lonely figure.
Positive Off-field adjustments & mental wellbeing will be more important to Syd's success than what he is currently doing on the track.

Im watching the Amazon making their Mark at the moment,

and thought it was interesting, early on in season 2021,

benny and Peggy were discussing the BLM movement and said something to the tune of

'it will be interesting to hear what Stacky and Danny and Marlion think'

Its a small thing, and it may have been nothing, but I thought it was telling that Benny listed Stacky first on matters of indigenous leadership

Good point Julius.

I take it you're unimpressed @Stig ?

In the context of our stingy stiggy being a Sydney sniper and hater - an “Mmmmmmmmh” is relatively mild criticism
I suspect if there was any serious slagging deserved that Syd would have copped it with both barrels

I will always remember his 2019 Dreamtime game and the way he led the ceremony before the game. The joy and pride was something to see.
The way he plays is such a joy to watch but he has been so far off the rails it is very difficult to see how we will see it again in the black and yellow.

So he’s back at training, meeting club expectations, and showing signs of feeling guilty

Great! Then he’s back on track.

Stick to the plan and he’ll re-earn what he once had.

Well we will find out over the next few weeks how much Syd wants to rebuild his career and his life.

Hopefully he gets a head of steam up and gets into it.

wouldn't expect him to be fit, he has no record of being able to stay fit while isolated. We will be lucky to see him in the seniors this year I reckon, but I'm happy with the club taking a punt anyway
