Yeah well what more do you want to say about this guy and this clubs thought process on this?

Have we woken up yet?

Standards have fallen into a heap of poo. First to select such a dud, and second for the dud himself to be so selfish to come back on, and prove to everyone  he will always be  an injury prone b grader.

What a massive stuff up.

Bit rough. He was playing very well before he went down.

stuff him. He took on the 750k and with that comes scrutiny.

I blame the club more though allowing dimma to do that.

Not his fault, but he must take the year off and get his body right. After that must accept a renegotiated contract

LMAO

No, he "must" not have to renegotiate anything. Club signed him to a deal and he can remain on that deal as long as he likes

To be fair - when heís been on the park this year , hes been in our best .

Problem is - heís just as injury prone as Prestia . The return on investment has been really poor so far .

I agree 100% with this

Those labelling him a dud etc, arenít correct

He just needs a decent run at it, the question is whether that will happen

Heís clearly a good player.

750k isnít even a big salary these days, not sure what all the fuss is about there.

The bigger issue is the picks we gave up for someone who seems to get injured atleast once a month.

He is playing like he was worth $500k not 750k. We should offload him to hit up a FA that is actually half descent. You cant have someone sitting on the sidelines all the time.

This isn't just now though most of his whole career, with the exception of 1 or 2 years which were very good. He has been not consistent his whole career, and likely really poor at managing his body. Case in point was going back on the field that proved nothing, which was part his fault, and part the amateur hour that exists in our footy department these days.

Even meatball produced the same type of year last year than hopper despite being banged up and pretty much cooked.

Disagree with that FJ.

In his limited time on the park heís been good and better than Meatball has been for a while. .

Fair enough, that is your opinion and i have mine. While stats dont tell the story i think they do here.

Meatball and Hopper shared similar stats last year and many on here would have said meatball was cooked last year so what does that tell us.

Hopper has had many excuses his whole career so far, which is why gws pretended they cared when he was let go.

IMO he would fit in well at the Cattery. They seem to get people fit and firing into their 30's and dont have anyone near their establishment called Luke. :shh

Shame he didnt choose them tbh.

i seen Hopper on the news telling the reporter he was in denial and angry. If this is what he does in full view of the camera, then how unprofessional or in denial is here off the ground?

Show some professionalism ffs.

I will say this as well. If it was Jack Graham, Cumberland or basically anyone what would everything think of that play?

What an absolute massive reach.

Youíre creating stories just to suit your narrative.

Iíve never seen a single person question his professionalism at the giants, tigers or in the afl.

Take your anger out on the club who made the trade and offered him the contract.

Scans have confirmed that Richmond midfielder Jacob Hopper suffered a mild hamstring strain in Wednesday nightís Anzac Day Eve clash against Melbourne.

The midfielder is expected to be unavailable for selection for the next two to three weeks due to the injury.

You accept the job offer, and with that comes scrutiny.

U must be unemployed if you take that point of view in the real world. I never have spared the club from criticism for making that trade either.  Wake up.

Countless injuries and u would think someone with half a brain doesn't stay on the ground after getting injured again.

As I have said in the past the standards have dropped when you have blokes carrying on like that.

Youíve taken the absolute most negative standpoint that you could possibly take on the matter.

On the flip side could it not be interpreted as a player absolutely fed up with his body letting him down and wanting to (albeit naively) try to stay on do the things heís paid for? Didnít Tom lynch do something very similar when he did his hammy? Didnít see you question his professionalism then.

Like I said itís one thing to criticise his performance when he plays but your constant endless pile up on him which stems from the club making a trade and offering a contract you donít agree with is tiresome.
