Ladies and gentlemen get out your fire extinguishers, the Hayne Plane has crashed.
The Australian media darling and former NRL player Jarryd Hayne has been dropped from the San Francisco 49ers squad as the entire population of Australia goes into mourning.
On Saturday Hayne lost his place on the squad in favour of promoted running back Kendall Gaskins from the practice squad.
Essentially this means Hayne has been put on life support, his career with the 49ers is hanging in the balance. Hayne has been placed on waivers, during in which another NFL club can claim him for themselves, with priority given to the worst performing clubs.
If for whatever reason no other team wants the Hayne Plane to land at their airport, the 49ers can choose to keep Hayne on their practice squad.
Even though on the inside thousands of liters of plane fuel are fuelling an internal inferno of sadness, Hayne is keeping a brave front:
Blessed for another test. Thanks for the love TW. Wish my guys all the best against the Rams. if nothing happens Ill be back on Tuesday✌🏽

Honestly I think the whole Jarryd Hayne situation has been blown way out of proportion. Sure he had a great debut, but then he really showed his inexperience. The media made him out to be someone bigger than he is which in turn might have contributed to the downfall of his six game career.
Will this just be some minor turbulence in Jarryd’s short-lived NFL career or will he crash and burn killing everyone who dared to board the Hayne Plane?
