The league is facing its most significant shake-up to concussion protocols in years — coming one day after the AFL was rocked by a landmark class action lawsuit.
It's amazing that they even get hurt, but how do they have a concussion issue?

Looks like for us it’s only HIA in Rd 16 v the dogs with 11 days into Rd 18 v the Dragons as the only possible forced 2 game rest.
That's a good observation. A good draw looks a lot different with this new rule

Helps if you're a team like Brisbane getting plenty of Thursday/Friday games, or West's getting mostly Sundays.

Not many 11 day turnarounds with draws like that.

Whilst not as many tackles you have guys coming at you from 360 degrees. Absolutely there are concussions, just not as many as League.
Yep - Hits from blindside more often, hits while trying to pick up a lose ball more often, big falls more often
Plenty of headknocks in AFL

Souds like Kent should just recommend Flanno become Director of Football.... Head Coach is beneath his talents.

Kent also sounds like a ********.

After saying (only just a few years back) that he should never be aloud back in the game he is now suggesting he should be a head coach

Make up your Fn mind.
Great Jurno is this guy.

Kent is an irrevelant piece of ****. I refuse to read or listen to anything he has to say.
Fair.

Let me summarize then….

After saying (only just a few years back) that he should never be aloud back in the game he is now suggesting he should be Manly’s head coach

All good mate, not having a go at you.

Personally I just pay no attention to anything that flea says.
It's a reasonable position, HB. I don't usually go there but I was interested in what Flanno was up to now... but it's confirmed, I'll be finding my news from other sources. His writing is atrocious.
