AFL great's concussion warning to McCartin

  AFL great's concussion warning to McCartin Paddy McCartin has been urged to hang up the boots by a former AFL star who has suffered after retirement due to concussions.McCartin was delisted by the Saints last month after making the decision to step away for season 2020 in hopes of overcoming the concussion issues that have threatened his career.

Patrick Dangerfield (born 5 April 1990) is an Australian rules footballer playing for the Geelong Football Club in the Australian Football League ( AFL ). He previously played for the Adelaide Crows.

Geelong star Patrick Dangerfield has re - signed with the Cats, extending his contract with the club until the end of the 2024 season . The 29-year-old former Brownlow Medal winner has played 248 AFL games, including 94 since joining Geelong after joining from the Adelaide Crows at the end of 2015.

Dangerfield was an integral member of the club's strong 2019 season, which saw Geelong claim the McClelland Trophy as minor premiers for the first time in 11 years.

He was expected to be awarded his second Brownlow medal with the Sporting News count putting the midfielder ahead by four votes at the end of the season, however, this would fail to translate on the night, finishing six points behind eventual winner Nat Fyfe.

Geelong’s general manager of football Simon Lloyd was pleased to tie down Dangerfield before he became off-contract in 2020, believing that he can continue his impressive form for future years to come.

“Since arriving through the doors of GMHBA Stadium, Patrick’s performance both on and off the field has been exceptional.

His overall commitment to the club and will to compete has been outstanding,” Lloyd said.

“Patrick leads by example, highly motivated to further develop himself and invest in the growth of his teammates.

"His ability to perform at a consistent, elite level is something our young group aspire to.

“A huge advocate for Geelong and the Surf Coast, it may come as no surprise to see him recommit to the club.

"We are sure he will excite our members and supporter for years to come.”

His re-signing continues Geelong's proactive pre-season, with Gary Rohan and Mitch Duncan signed to contract extensions over the past 24 hours.
