"Optimistic" is Roger trying to breath some life into his disappointed fans. He's probably trying to figure out if he needs surgery and that could set him back beyond the AO if it's true and he doesn't do it right away.

The fact that he was on crutches for 2 weeks says it all to me.

I'd love to hear the specifics about the injury. Exactly how it happened. Ankles just don't roll over and snap without strange provocation. Were his ankles weak, he would have had warning signs.

I hope I'm wrong.
