So tollit who has been out injured was ok to play on it then ???

The point of some selection changes was not risk reoccurance of some peoples injuries or the impact on people.

McEverley played against Kilamrnock for Ross county last season and said it took him the best part of a week to recover because the 4G impacted on his knees in a certain way. Mellon listened earlier in the season and limited his pitch time on 4G pitches.

As for Tollit almost certainly being used as an impact player only for limited time.

Players not used were deemed a risk, not because they kicked up rough about playing on the surface, because that is a 99.9% certainty that they would not moan about 4G pitches and refuse to play on them, but if you were a footballer and you'd played on one and some of your joints were still feeling the impact 3-4 days later, would you tell your manager it's not a problem to play on such a pitch, or suggest your impact be limited to the subs bench or not at all, when the team next played on such a pitch?

I rather think you would do the latter don't you, so you wouldn't risk possible impact damage to said joints again, that could hamper how long you played football in your career, or damage that could eventually premeditate constant niggles through the rest of your life and if John Fashanu is in early stage knee arthritis in his mid 50's, then why should McNulty end up like him, because he plays once too often on 4G surfaces?
