Stack will never be the type to blitz at training. I would rather Stack being Crap at training, compared to Pettifier or Fleming burning the track.
He will gain fitness playing the game.
Not worried.

A lot of the indigenous guys struggle to run for running sake and do much better when a footy is involved, but having said that it is a major concern if a player can't finish a 1200 metre run at that pace.

Maybe shorter qtrs will help,
Maybe he isnt a good trainer,
Maybe he isnt commited enough,
But at the end of the day, he is a quality footballer.
We have the best fitness and recovery coaches in the comp.

Thank you so much, @caesar
So Stackman 500 metres behind sounds like a whole lap, in which case George ran 50% further!
Ok my distances may be out slightly:rolleyes: but you get the drift, Stackman finished 3/4 lap behind Georgie, and no they all ran the same distance as they stopped after 3 laps except Stack who expired 30 metres before official finish line.
So doing my numbers again, what is the circumference of PRO about 450m?, 3/4 of a lap behind Georgie is about 337.5m, my other distances were probably similarly out;)

Well, that's the length of the Caulfield straight over a sprint race distance. With FF in the form guide too.

He obviously struggles a little outside of direct control but he'll be up and running I'm sure, and the staff will get up him.

Training back in the group will get him switched back on, no stress yet, he'll be ok when the ball is bounced

Focus and structure is important for the lad..

Great stuff Caesar. Good to see that you're back on the horse ;)

Regarding what Fly said about all of the coaches being retained (which is awesome by the way), isn't the new reduced soft cap going to affect our ability to retain those coaches?

Don't think clubs know exactly what the REDUCED soft cap will be yet and that comes into effect next year and then it will be a case of shuffling the magnets and the dollars and deciding where our priorities within the football dept lie

Stackman collapsed 30 meters before the finish line a further 250 metres behind.

Look when balls are out Stacky looking fine, but word on the street was he was less than dedicated in lockdown.
Huge concerns

Winx never, ever won a trial.

im about as concerned about Stackman as I am about the feathers down the bottom of my doona

he probably just had a couple of zinger burgers in the saddlebags

Bit of “ Tom Melbourne “ at the moment , although the maiden at Ballarat tomorrow is where he might end up ‍♂
