I dont understand why people think hes a write off this year.

the grand final is 6 months away.

Why cants an injury free 20 year old get fit in 6 months,

following the normal process?

6 week preseason, 6 VFL games leaves 3 more months.

Im a bit confused? has he presented looking like Stewy Dew or Kate Moss?

He didn't manage to get fit last year even in the hub. Hope I'm wrong but can't see it happening.

Stacky is still serving a penalty with 3 weeks to go. From that point if not before, he is just a young player finding his way. No need for pity. No need to focus on his past.
Just a young player who has shown enormous promise making his way.
Not much would please me more than seeing him at the 2019 mid season best again. I haven’t enjoyed a young player coming into our team as much as that for a long time, maybe back to Dusty

I still think Stack has played his best footy at half back and as we sit here now with him obviously well of AFL match fit , I believe he is our best replacement for our old half back champ Houli , Bacher has long been the player with no obvious replacement coming through. Still a long shot to even get back in the AFL, however there’s a great opportunity coming for Syd if he works bloody hard.

A better option than the Eggman for the position

I understand he is starting a long way back for Stackman
Some injuries along the way may open up some potential doors for him - it's a long season
He's going to have work and train damn hard
But if he wants it badly then there may be some chance he could be somewhat of an X-factor later in the season.
I am so wanting him to succeed, to get the drive and hunger back, the desire to be a damn good footy player AND to be happy within himself.

Just saw a snippet from the news of Sydney stopped at the water station at training today.
He looked quite trim.
Were some on here saying he looked like he had been in a good paddock?
How far off would he be realistically?

Saw the same thing and agree with you, he physically looked decent
it’s all about his endurance and fitness now, and I’d imagine he’d build that up fairly quickly, as Peter Burge is as good as there is when it comes to managing players fitness.
Will be great when he gets to the required level, and he will imo

I reckon he'd be about as far off,

as Rhyan Mansell realistically was last week

I'm guessing Syd didn't play in the VFL praccie?

We need him, Asap.
I'll be at our VFL opener 12pm this Friday which apparently Syd will be playing in.

He looks ok, will be finding a bit of touch under match conditions as it’s been a long break. Will need 3-4 I’d say at least

Sydney Stack may very well become a very important inclusion in the future.

C'mon Syd this is your time the Tigers need you and your best.

Might head down and show him some support. Does anybody know if I can just walk up and buy a ticket or do I have to book?

Just rock up to @caesar 's house, he'll have a few frothies nice and cold for ya, then mosey on over with the great man to his VIP viewing area, aka the Punt Rd footpath.
