    "Reported". What an unpleasant image. That's the sort of thing I'd expect on the #lolCameNinf Board.

    The foot broker Mills and the arm broker Rampe, fixed but but no Reid and Melican hamstrings, Ling's Toe Turf, Naismith's ACL.

    Teasing

    Hanson and the bunch of Boganistas on the #lolCameNinf Board are a perfect match.

    Do you reckon that photo is giving a hint of the future?

    I see the coaches, medicos, leadership group and Heeney and Mills...

    Gives you a hint at their contract size and marketing value

    In 80 years it's gonna be too hot to have opinions on people's hair from a century ago.

    Should have been done months ago. When Horse goes he should take our Un-fitness team with him.

    Good heavens that’s a heck of a long injury list.

    I have no idea how you can make such a claim. What are your medical qualifications? So you have access to Melican's health records?

    The answers are none and no, aren't they? If so you are just spouting uniformed BS.

    Not sure which you’re referring to, but if Melican, i’m no expert but I can’t imagine it would be good for his recovery from hamstring issues to be simultaneously undergoing surgery on a knee. That just seems like a bit of an ordeal for an athlete’s body. It’s possible they may have waited for him to recover from his hamstring concerns before doing surgery on his knee.

    Or maybe he injured his knee while training once he had recovered from the hammy, in which case no one but shit luck is to blame. I’m just spit-balling here.

    So was I..

    I am not an orthopaedic surgeon, however I have considerable experience in knee, quad and hamstring issues.

    Long injury list already including Franklin, senior players in decline, temporary training grounds, only picking up fringe (possibly useless) players from other teams in the trade period. Then I think a back to some of those seriously horrible losses in the second half of last year ... Gold Coast, Geelong, Richmond, Essendon, GWS ...

    I think this could be our first really bad year in a long time. I dont blame anyone, it is just the reality of a socialist competition and how well we have done for so long to stay up the top. I think our medium term prospects are very bright with the amount of good young players we have, but next year could be tough.

    Hmmmm. Agree, though socialism embodies optimism about the potential of humans. I will go

    Eh

    If that’s the case then so be it as I think it will become very good in 2020/2021.

    But I remember thinking all doom and gloom after 2015. We’d had a shambles of a season where we never looked like contenders (yet still finished fourth? #equalisation), we lost a heap of senior experience (including our GOAT), we’d been embroiled in sagas all year (the Goodes debacle, Buddy’s mental health and the BS conversation around it, the mass injury crisis in September, the COLA crap) and we’d also been humiliated in a grand final the prior year. It felt like it could only go down from there. Then in 2016 we rejuvenated the playing list and the best 22, and suddenly this newfound sense of buoyancy infected the club and took us to a grand final.

    Not saying that’s what will happen in 19, but our club has a very high standard and seems to breed competitiveness from within. They may spring a surprise on us

    Onya Caesar. Hope you're right. Seems most clubs have long injury lists.

    Feel sorry for that one guys in the squad that didn't get surgery and has missed out on flowers and choccies.

    I think the warning signs were much greater in the back half of 2018 compared to 2015. Obviously there was the issue with Franklin in 2015, and we just ran out of steam at the end with injuries.

    But those losses in the second half of this year.. We genuinely looked like a bottom 4 team, and maybe even bottom 2, on multiple occasions.
