    Isn't this Sloane's 3rd face-break? I don't think that he'll ever make it, prone to face-breaking. (Am I doing it right)

    He really should wear a helmet.

    Or hopefully he can wear a facemask, so that he can let the golden locks flow free.

    My preference is for him to be permanently masked. Like the caped crusader that he is.:$ :p

    Doesnt surprise me, 2 large gaping holes now in our midfield. Given our weakness is in the guts, its a massive issue for us.

    Being able to roll GWS in R1, would make their tears taste delicious if it happens.

    Poor things have to have something to get excited about.

    A few of them saw their side still can't kick last night, including their new manchild SPP, so they need a distraction.

    So I'm guessing that's why a Port poster posted a totally random "ahhhh yes..... the old karma bus" in the Non Crows thread?

    He never did explain that. I don't get it, we never took joy in their injuries, just in them being shit.

    Anything to distract them from their Chairman's embarrassing interview on 5aa last night.

    Since then, Kornes said it will add pressure to the club and Hinkley, Adelaide Now has an article, MMM and 5AA will be discussing it. Not to mention he's sure to have pissed off Gold Coast. Good one Kochie.

    What's the bet our makeshift midfield of rarely tried and young players perform really well only to be displaced by the old reliables who under perform come the season proper?

    Nah. If they perform they won't be replaced. For starters Thommo looks unlikely to be ready. I think once they get given the opportunity they will take it.

    So even if both Sloane and brouch come up for round 1, do we want to be playing two guys in the guts who haven't played any preseason matches?

    Not worried about Sloane, but i'd stick Crouch in the ressies first.

    This will be a test of our "organics"

    Maybe better to happen sooner rather than later so we can see the extent of our midfield depth without the likes of our top three mids from 2 seasons ago. Four if you count Lyons.

    Gibbs would have been handy about now..............just sayin'

    They have had little to get excited about of late... You would think China would give them enough. ;)

    To be fair our board also has some posters who celebrate their players being injured, so all clubs have idiots... just they probably have a higher proportion. ;)

    Hopefully the AFL has a low injury year for all clubs as we want to see the best players play.
