Can't complain!


I was desperate for Port to nab this bloke with our Bergman pick - has all the traits to be an outright star.

My only solace right now, is the fact that Gawn aside (no one else comes to mind), no player who has done an ACL at junior level has gone on to become a star at AFL level.

I thought Joel Selwood did an ACL the year before he was drafted.? He goes ok


na he just had a dodgy knee, wasn't an ACL
Im sure there is one though, cant remember who. Chris Grant?

Ben Rutten did an ACL at u18 level. Pretty handy footballer..

Good thought provoking point that one. Max King obviously is the one that may prove you wrong but you're right, more often than not it does limit them to an extent. Mind you, thankfully not all kids have done ACL's either.
