Thread: The Crayfish

  1. #1

    The Crayfish

    So, I couldn't see a thread about Sam Naismith, so thought I'd start one.

    I'm motivated to do so by one question: why didn't Sam play in the Reserves last week?

    Does anyone have any insight into where he is at? Has he been training?
    (Okay, I know, that's three questions).

    Someone posted on here that he was injured, but no further details

    No mention of The Cray in yesterdays injury report.

    Probably just managing his volume of game time to progressively build up. Missing again this week would be a flag though

    He's done his knee again. The graft didn't take.

    Report on AFL.com that he needs another reconstruction.

    Oh crap! He's done.

    Here's the link: More knee heartbreak: Third reco puts big Swan Sam Naismith's career in doubt (afl.com.au).

    Thanks for the memories.

    Explains why we picked up McAndrew from nowhere.

    Really feel for Sam. Seems like this sort of stuff happens to the good guys (I'm thinking AJ in particular).

    At age 28, it's going to be tough to make a meaningful comeback. He last played a decent block of games in 2017. Even if this goes well, we're looking at mid 2022, with his contract expiring at the end of season 2022.

    For the sake of the club and the list, he should retire. Perhaps there could be a role for him as a ruck coach or in player welfare / development to ease his transition into retirement.

    Absolutely devastating for him. Such a great character
