He did his finger 25th May and was a 8-10 week injury.

8 weeks is round 18 v Port, 9 weeks is round 19 v Collingwood and 10 weeks is round 20 v Melbourne.

Even if he played those 3 weeks in the vfl he’d still have the opportunity in 3 games (rounds 21-23) in the AFL.

It’s a long shot I reckon - best to plan for 2020 with two new players, Pickett and Rance. ;D

Put his finger in the Alta G or in a decompression chamber. That might help speed up the recovery. ;D

He's also cover for Shedda and Houli on the hbf/ mid role.
Those 2 will have more injuries, and miss more matches.
Do we give that role to a young body or a 28yo who can step straight into the breach.
The upshot is he can potentially cover any of Ellis Edwards Houli

Is listed as 3-4 weeks away. If he plays in 4 weeks, has 2 games in the VFL, he might be a chance for selection in round 22 against the Eagles at the G.
A bit of deja vu, 5 games and a premiership just like Jack Graham.
What a story there'd be to tell, two players in Stack and Pickett that no other clubs wanted.
There's a few ifs, but Pickett might just be the cherry on top.

Would be a fairytale déjà vu double, either of 2019 Pickett and Ross = Graham and Townsend of 2017

He is super brisk, hits hard and slippery skills.
The knock from junior days was his behaviour but IIRC was touted as a top 5 talent.
Now is matured and settled, and committed.
Can he make our side better?
I,m a big believer.

Hollywood will be calling to make a movie if Pickett plays and we win the flag
They can get that world renowned director BJ. Goddard, whose highly touted project...
"Whatever It Takes"...... never quite got off the ground.

If i was Marlion, Id honestly be taking the end of the finger off.

Its the last joint apparently, and hes got 3 months to make an impact and set his family up for good.

If the club surgeon wouldnt do it, id go to the butcher on bridge road and grab some lamb cutlets while i was in there.
His wife might not want him to chop the end of his finger off.

We can’t possibly find 2 stacks can we?
Is this gods compensation for Lennon, Vickery, Ellis, Pettifer, Fiona, Griffens,

that's what im anticipating

'9 fingers' *****

If you see one movie this year, it must be 9 fingers. 3 men, 5 knees, 14 fingers and a bucket of greasy chicken defy the odds and seek the ultimate redemption in the feel good movie of 2019. Daniel Chick as Marlion Pickett is a revelation. Nominated for 8 Academy Awards including best picture, best male lead and best make up artistry

This kid's name will do my head in. Meet the Merlion, Singapore's half lion, half fish. "Imitating the Merlion" is slang for throwing up.

Must've been a badly broken finger.
A broken leg would've healed quicker
