What if the club who is paying him made him say that to protect his and the clubs image? Do you really think he did a grade 2 hamstring injury slipping in the shower? I just find it hard to believe? Are you also saying that the club has never given out misinformation to fans and the media? Woodsie, I love your work but If so, I've got a nice bridge near the harbour I need to clear quickly I could let you have it for $500K?Have you considered that in the video, Tom doesn't appear to pull up lame ... and that a grade 2 tear would cause enough discomfort that everybody would have noticed him limping ... or that of the 20/30/or 50 people watching ... not one has gone on social media calling his story BS ... or does the conspiracy theory also include Parker and the rest of his team mates, plus Harry the Flash, his giggling mate and all the spectators ....
I don't know what happened either Ron E, but I am prepared to give a bloke who has never given any reason to doubt him the benefit of the doubt ..
Anyway, how he got injured isn't the main point or my main concern. The main issue is that he plays a really tough sport and his body seems too fragile and is too injury prone for him to play it? In recent seasons he is injured and unavailable way more often than not and and our teams fortunes are too reliant on a player whose body can not be relied upon. Footy as you know is a tough business and although he is from all reports one of the best blokes in the world he is getting paid a **** load of money to play footy and his body just can't do it. As a result he represents a poor investment and his high salary and constant absence unbalances our salary cap and our team.
There is no easy answer and I am a sausage roll eating numb nut so I sure as hell don't know what the answer is? I'd sure as **** hate to be the guy who let him go but the constant will he make it back or won't he is just killing us?
When he is playing every time he makes contact or runs it always just feels like he is one hit up or tackle away from another long term injury.
