I think RL should consider its use. Just imagine if you could spot the "crapping in a shoe", " hoppa finger", "mobile fire up", "next to the female dorm" or "late night club drunken & disorderly" gene in advance. The administrators could save a fortune in time and money. Bring it on.
"Essendon football manager Dominic Cato said the Bombers had been introduced to the idea during a shared training session with Manly in February, but he said the Bombers also had their own moral and ethical concerns."
interesting comment. I wonder if our club was looking at it?
Are they saying you can match DNA data with key physical attributes to see if someone can play, Before even kicking a ball?
I think that it could stop players early in their careers being offered opportunities. Would Alan Langer have been given a go (way too small)? Seriously, I believe it would hold people back. The most important ingredient is in personality with the will-to-win and courage being high on the list. Would these be able to be identified?
Wheel is on the money when he talks about designing training programmes that match up to a profile of an athlete. Speed, endurance etc would be enhanced. There was an article on this and Manly earlier in the year.
