Who has a worse injury list than us? If we’re nowhere near the worst there must be half a dozen teams worse off...?
Essendon, Carlton, Gold Coast, GWS all have worse injury lists than us.

Sydney have basically no injuries which is why they are going so well at the moment. Though their track record is to needle guys until they are cooked then off load them.

I want to play Lobb as a floating link player that either marks against guys a foot shorter than him and we move the ball better or they bring a tall defender away from Tabs to stand in the corridor by him for that reason.
I think he is elite down the line, serviceable as a 2nd ruck and passable as a forward.
This and this.
It's 100% his best role. Roaming CHF. Get up and around the ground and work over someone smaller, OR keep a good defender acountable.

I don't usually watch those Longmuir channel seven clips on the club website but for some reason watched the one from last night. He seemed to be saying we just need to wait out the next couple of weeks to get guys back. Notwithstanding that waiting out the next couple of weeks will destroy our finals prospects, a little over a week ago he denied we had an injury crisis and Fyfe was emailing us all with some bullshit about us playing a system that doesn't rely on personnel.
There are some worrying muddled messages from the top.

Yeah this match against Hawthorn is a big one for us, if we win we're going pretty ok if we lose then waiting 2 weeks for players is gonna be very worrying.

What will probably happen is we win, play some exciting footy,have some individual brilliance and all is forgiven. Change is here, we believe the hype..again, following week play pathetically shitfull elsewhere and back to square one...

i remember the season Harvey got canned where went spent the whole season "waiting for the calvary to arrive".

Our injury list is bad but its not disasterous. We have 4-5 best 22 players out and some of them will return shortly. Stop the excuses.

Yeah if we don't add anybody else to it for 3-4 weeks we would be near full strength then. Shill doesn't count because I am pretty sure he is all but retired.

Edit: Could have everyone but Shill, Young and possibly AP and Hammer. In 5 weeks it should be all but Shill and Young.

I feel like the big players we need back are Lobb, tucker and 1 of hamling or pearce (other than fyfe). Our season will be defined in the next month, as we have winnable games.
I’d have Fyfe and Logue ahead of most of them.

EDIT just noticed you have ..after Fyfe..

Yeh it’s definitely becoming a hard sell now. Even the injury update butters us up that we are getting fringe players back, then hits us with Hayden young.

I wonder if Young stayed in Melbourne after the injury?
Apparently the first 5 days after a serious hammy tear are critical for a successful recover and a flight may not have been considered ideal.

Hopefully they have one of these or similar for flights (if they flew him back to see a WA specialist)

For those bagging Tabernar there is an article in the West online that he has sent the most time on the ground in the AFL this year of any team and run more than 15kms in both the Melbourne and Carlton games. Perhaps he would be a lot more effective if he stopped trying to be a winger and stayed in the 50 metre arc. Maybe it explains why he doesnt always get to the front of a contest and appears lazy at times.

I often wonder why the hell he is so far up the ground .
Compensating for lack of talls and lead up support I guess .
He is carrying a lot of weight on his shoulders .
May the force be with him
