Now we know why his play has been subpar. Why was he even brought back tp play that soon . What is going on.

While it is curious, I don't think it was done on purpose (bringing him back early). If my understanding is correct, the fear with mono is that it increases the size of one's spleen which can be dangerous especially for an individual taking part in a contact sport. I would assume the last time he was cleared to play it was because his spleen was back to normal size, and therefore the doctors thought there would be no risk of serious injury. I did think it was strange he was back so soon as it seems many players miss much more extended periods of time with mono, but to suspect that the trainers are to blame for this is shortsighted. I have faith that they would not put a player in harm's way by clearing him early just to get him back in the lineup.

Just my 2c.


I am talking about the Doctor. Myby it is time to get new doctors.


Would someone explain to me what kind of a charley horse Horvat has? I've had charley horses and they never took this long.Re Finn, I agree why rush him. They should have been absolutely sure he was healthy.
