AFL, Answer the Question Everyone’s Asking

Questions are being asked by sporting bodies and spectators around the world as more and more cases of myocarditis, pericarditis, heart attacks and other heart conditions increase on a weekly basis.

Seeing medics work on athletes on the sideline or even on the pitches of various sports has become an all-too-common occurrence.

This has been brought home to Australia recently with an increasing number of AFL players suffering heart issues.

During the off-season North Melbourne Kangaroos player Jed Anderson revealed he developed the heart condition pericarditis after getting his second Covid vaccination to continue his AFL career.

Anderson had been reluctant to get his second jab after he experienced an adverse reaction from his initial vaccination. All AFL players are required to be double vaccinated which led to a standoff between Anderson and the club.

Eventually, he got the second vaccination and was then hospitalised with pericarditis which is a swelling and irritation of the thin, sac-like membrane surrounding the heart.

He has not played this season but is hopeful of making a return soon.

Hayden Crozier of the Western Bulldogs has been out of action since suffering heart issues in round 2. This was seen on live television as cameras followed him into the change rooms as he left the field. Hayden has not played since round 2.

An unnamed SANFL player with the Adelaide Crows had a reaction to his Pfizer shot and developed pericarditis in the off season. Chanel 7 stated this was a direct reaction to his vaccine shot. He was told by his heart specialist not to train for 3 months.

AFL great Matthew Lloyd, on the Footy Show, has linked his Bell’s palsy to the vaccinations. Lloyd was recently diagnosed with Bell’s palsy, a form of facial paralysis, and he said the instances of people getting the condition had increased since Covid jabs had been administered.

‘It’s not just the heart issues, without delving into your private affairs but you’ve got Bell’s palsy at the moment, which hopefully you’re on the back end of, but there’s a bit of that getting around as well,’ Nathan Brown, another panellist, said. 

Lloyd replied, ‘Heart issues and Bell’s palsy have gone through the roof since the boosters and Covid issues.’

‘We had [sports journalist] Michelangelo Rucci on [3AW] on Friday night and he said that there’s a ward filled with people with similar symptoms to Ollie Wines – nausea and heart issues – so there has to be something more to it.’

Ollie Wines, a Port Adelaide player, was hospitalised during their clash with Melbourne last weekendHe suffered from nausea and dizziness before later getting heart palpitations.

Following the ordeal of one of the Crows players, Adelaide Crows’ director Nick Takos resigned from his position, criticizing the Australian Football League’s “forceful” mandatory COVID-19 vaccination policy.

Takos says he sought and was denied a medical exemption from having a COVID-19 vaccine.

It is mandatory for all players and officials to be fully vaccinated. “The AFL’s COVID mandate, and the club’s deeply concerning response to it, has left me with no choice but to step down,” Takos said when he stepped down.

These are all major issues brought to a head by the Footy Shows panellists on Thursday night. Their story has sent repercussions throughout the AFL, club supporters and the wider sporting community with many now questioning the mandatory administration of the covid jabs.

Seeing players sidelined with heart related issues is a major concern, not only for the health of the players but also for the weekly team performance. Fans and club members want to see the best players available and if a non-essential medical procedure stops players being on the field for weeks or months at a time then it’s time to ask if it’s worth it.

A source with the AFL fraternity has implied Ollie may have been pressured into making his statement distancing his heart issue from the AFL’s vaccination protocols.

While Ollie Wines didn’t divulge specifics around his diagnosis, he said on his release from hospital that it was a common problem, particularly among elite athletes.

The Port star also said there were no concerns his health scare was related to his Covid vaccination and myocarditis.

“It’s nothing to do with that. It’s completely unrelated,” Wines said.

“It’s more a heart rhythm issue that is pretty common in elderly people and elite athletes”.

Since when have we ever connected health issues of the elderly with elite athletes? Ollie’s condition may be a more common problem now but prior to the Covid jabs heart related issues were NOT a common problem.

In over 30 years of playing, watching, coaching and the past 20 years photographing all kinds of sports from junior to international events I have seen 2 heart issues. Both in master’s competitions. Heart issues have not been common Ollie.

Many articles have been written on these problems. So many in fact, it is becoming impossible to keep up with how many athletes around the world are being impacted with heart related concerns across a wide range of sports.

Just last night Paige Satchell, a member of the NZ women’s soccer team, was subbed off early in the match against Australia with an apparent breathing/heartbeat issue.

And has been rightly pointed out, we are only hearing of the elite athletes involved in this. How many ‘ordinary’ people or junior athletes are impacted? How many of our children will be affected? TGA has 3 cases of 5–11-year old’s sadly passing away within days of the jab being given. Young lives cut short because of a procedure for a virus that has little if any impact on this age range. There are other similar cases in this age group we have heard of that have not been reported for various reasons.

In the USA there are states advising school children and college athletes to get their hearts tested before competing in their sports programs. Since when has that EVER happened? Since the vaccine rollout, that’s when.

The NFL has become the first major sporting body around the world to suspend all Covid-19 protocols for the 2022 season for both vaccinated and unvaccinated players. Yes, the NFL are allowing unvaccinated players to play in 2022. They are giving them options.

This is seen as a major victory for those supporting a freedom of choice attitude to the experimental drugs trials. Where there is a chance of injury there MUST be a freedom of choice to be jabbed or not.

Behind the scenes in many sports, administrators have concerns. Nothing stated publicly by the organizations, but information is being gathered.

  1. Surely players are being warned to stop if they feel chest pains so they don’t become another statistic. In the recent Miami Tennis Open ,15 stopped during matches. Worldwide ,sportsmen must be realizing they have been betrayed.

    A famous sportsman speaking out has a far greater effect on the general public than a brilliant doctor or scientist does.A former European star recently went public againt attempts to “normalize” heart problems saying he had never seen any in his 17 years of international soccer.

  2. Truth is something Liberal National Labor and Greens are incapable of and Australians must realise that the only hope we have of being free and having all our democratic rights reinstated and to stop living in terrifying Totalitarianism is to NEVER NEVER NEVER vote for Liberal National Labor or Greens EVER AGAIN or we are finished and will live in every state of Australia run by the monstrous tyrants dictators such as Dan Andrews, McGowan, Palaszczuk, Gunner, Morrison and others – the Police brutality experienced by many innocent people has been an example of what Full On Totalitarianism will be forever ! They will behave a bit now dangling a carrot until after the election and God help us if any Australians vote any of them in ! So please HELP us all to save each other, our lives, our civil rights our medical rights our human rights and our democracy and NEVER NEVER vote for Liberal National Labor or Greens EVER AGAIN. May we all be saved from those monstrous Tyrants.

    However, I fear, with the damage the Morrison Liberal National Government has done to itself on a range of fronts (but most notably on the issue of not acting against vaccine mandates), that we are facing an Albanese Labor Government running the country for the next three years at the very least.

    What will that look like? Well, think Dan Andrews as Prime Minister. If you don’t think that’s possible, consider the COVID restrictions that Labor have put on journalists who want to join Albanese on the campaign trail, as reported by The Daily Mail:

    Any journalist who wants to travel on the Albanese bus must be triple vaccinated, wear an N95 mask most of the time, and take a rapid antigen test every three days.

    It gives you an idea of the kind of things Labor thinks it is reasonable to impose upon the Australian public.

    Make no mistake, I fear that the election of a Labor government will be the culmination of every woke and anti-freedom agenda you can think of, but I don’t believe we are going to be able to stop it. I hope I am wrong.

    Anyway, in preparation for an incoming Labor government, I feel it is the make-up of the Australian Senate that is going to be pivotal for our nation’s future.

    Personally, I will be voting below the line in the Senate and numbering every pro-freedom party, Senator and candidate that’s on the ballot. That way we may just be able to get a Senate where the cross bench is dominated by pro-freedom parties and where the Liberal and National parties have enough decent pro-freedom members left among them.

    If we can get this outcome, then the Senate can act like the proverbial Dutch boy with his finger in the dike, holding back all sorts of bad laws from inflicting themselves on you, me, our families and our nation.
