Looks like Eli will be ok..hopefully its a speedy rcovery.
I have been away and only saw the news yesterday evening. Terrible to see it happen to anyone, and sounds like pretty freakish circumstances.
Apparently it is a fractured skull but he is hoped to make a full recovery.
Here's hoping its also a speedy one.
I'm still quite shocked. I'm also a touch surprised that Port Melbourne didn't decide to rest him.. But that's unimportant now.
* It's time to restore the VFA name.
My guess is that they leave it to the players discretion, I think partly due to the low pay of the competition they allow players to play in order to maximise their income. Perhaps things may have been different should Port had a chance of playing finals.
