    I doubt they'll need the 12 points taken from them now.. They'll struggle to win many games from here on in one would think.

    That is a tough break for Foran. Don't give a stuff about the Eels they shouldn't be playing for points anyway but this injury could be devastating for Forans mental state.

    It’s pretty rough on the guy. Hopefully it gives him some time to sort his sh*t out. I’d imagine playing for nothing could be pretty demoralising anyway.

    Feel bad for Foran, seems like a pretty good bloke. Couldn't give a stuff about the Eels as a club though.

    Don't know why he felt obliged to play, his shoulder was already busted going into the game.

    Deserves a long holiday overseas after all the shite he's been through.

    I don't see the funny side in any of this?

    Poor guy, his season has probably gone to a high point to legit bottom of the barrel stuff extremely quickly

    Didn't seem fit to play in the first place. He was clutching his shoulder for half hour before he went off. I'm not one to contradict medical professionals. But that was very shit management by the medical professionals.

    Could be the best thing for him too.

    Get right away from the whole Parra debacle and concentrate on getting consistent, long term assistance rather than fly-in fly-out therapy.

    He could do with some proper time off. Maybe now with a long term injury the media will get distracted and move on to pestering someone else.

    Poor bloke. He obviously couldn't shoulder the load.

    Shocked that he played tbh.

    Should have rested last night and with the bye this week could have a couple of weeks to get better.

    Probably a blessing in disguise though, being forced to have a long rest he can concentrate on the more important things in his life.

    Feel bad for Foran, but karma is a bitch, Parra.

    My first thought. Maybe footy is the last thing he should be worrying about at the moment. Sometimes the workplace can compound, rather than alleviate, your problems.

    You obviously don't know what karma is if you think this is it

    He doesn't know who Jason Smith is and he has trouble grasping the difference between 6 digit and 7 digit numbers....

    Would it surprise you if he didn't understand what karma is??? He probably thinks it's a drink Pacific Islanders like to have...

    After all he's been through he probably just needs a shoulder to cry on.
