Tom Langdon retires with
a year remaining on his contract due to a degenerative knee injury.
Thursday, 5 March 2020
Tom Langdon has been forced
to confront the possibility of retirement as he continues his battle with a degenerative knee cartilage injury.
"[Retirement is] an option, absolutely. It's been a tough eight months to be honest, to wrap my head around that being an option. Being 25, young and reasonably healthy, that's been a hard reality to come to terms with," Langdon told Channel Seven on Tuesday night.
"It's something that definitely came out of the blue. You play in a Grand Final, and then eight games later the surgeon puts it to you that you might not be able to play again."

Nathan Buckley says Tom Langdon has pondered, and
rejected, retirement in his ongoing battle with a knee injury.
"The outcome there is still not clear on what his body is going to allow him to do," Buckley said of Langdon.
"So we need a fair bit to go his way, but we're not giving up on it and neither is he, clearly, because he loves playing. He loves being involved in the group as well."

Tom Langdon will likely be sidelined for the rest of 2019 after undergoing surgery for his right knee.
The 25-year-old has been sidelined for nine games since injuring his right knee during the first quarter of the round nine win over St Kilda at the MCG.
Just a fortnight ago, Magpies coach Nathan Buckley reported Langdon was making progress towards a late-season return after several "encouraging" weeks.
"At various times there was hope that he could avoid surgery, recover and get back late in the season but in the end it wasn't to be," Collingwood football chief Geoff Walsh said.

Ed Langdon says he won't start negotiations over a new deal at the Dockers until the second half of the 2019 season.
Langdon has previously been the subject of speculation about a move back to Victoria, particularly from Collingwood, where his brother Tom Langdon plays.
"I don't think I'll really address it until the end of the year, I don't want to complicate my footy too much at the moment," Ed said.
"I've played a few games with my brother, and you're always going to want to play with your brother, that's pretty natural. But it's not something I'll be considering anytime soon."

Tom Langdon admits to being anxious about his future at the end of 2018, but is glad he chose to remain at Collingwood.
"Switching from playing in a Grand Final to having to automatically focus on where you were going to play the next year was a bit frustrating and confusing," Langdon said.
"I always had my heart set on staying at Collingwood and wanted to make it work as much as possible. It was just a matter of working through a few contract terms and financial stuff, and it worked itself out in the end."

Tom Langdon's manager Scott Lucas says his client has finally received a contract offer from Collingwood but is considering options from other clubs.
Lucas says Langdon had to carefully weigh up his future given the Magpies had prioritised other players earlier in the year.
"When a club that a player is at delays that (negotiations) for so long we need to be proactive and discuss his options elsewhere," Lucas said.
"I think it's fair to say they've been into other players from other clubs."

"That knee that he's had has been giving him some trouble, so he went and saw the surgeon last week," Magpies football manager Neil Balme said.

Tom Langdon expects to play primarily in defence for the Magpies in 2016.

Since pushing his way into the Magpies' team in the opening round of the season, Tom Langdon has quickly become a key member of the Collingwood backline, averaging 18 disposals per game.
"It's been really surprising from my point of view. I wasn't expecting to improve that fast," Langdon said.
"Undoubtedly the players I've been playing on have got a lot more experience than me and they're really strong and powerful.
"It's all about body positioning and I work pretty hard with (backline coach) Ben Hart on that and just trying to get that right."

Tom Langdon earns the round 7 Rising Star nod after starring against Blues with 23 disposals and 8 marks.
Langdon has a point to prove after being overlooked in the 2012 national draft.
"I guess I have a bit of a chip on my shoulder, but I see that in a good way," Langdon said.
"Because as 'Bucks' (coach Nathan Buckley) knows I set pretty high standards for myself, so that has come about through missing out in 2012.
"I just want to keep performing to a level to which I'm satisfied with and keep improving and I guess missing out has really helped that."
