So the real mystery is… Where is Kieran Briggs?

Wasn’t an emergency (Preuss & Keefe played VFL, MdB was the medi-sub and Peatling obviously the travelling emergency) but Briggs didn’t play in the VFL game either - and now not listed in the injury update at all. Usually in a situation like that he would be either a Test or mentioned as available for selection in the body of the article.

Anyone have any info on the big fella?

Heard he had a cork and is a possibility for this week.

One thing I find amazing in all the Leon press conferences I have seen over the last 4 years (both during the week and post game) I cannot recall any member of the press grilling him about the club's deplorable injury record and what is being done to improve this.

It's the most obvious question in the world yet no one either seems to think to ask about it or the club has some arrangement to have these questions be out of bounds.

Have a look at the Lions and Swans injury lists yet again with barely anyone on them. Staggering this aspect is not more heavily publicised/scrutinised.

A complete disaster.

Let’s hope JH makes a full recovery.

Anyone else noticing the deafening silence?

Chair, CEO, Director of Football, Line Coaches?

Everyone has gone into hiding.

I’ve got a feeling the next time they all publicly reappear will be with Hird.

Did I miss something that Giants are going to become privately owned? Also think a new coach would be the way to go not someone that flamed out somewhere else unless Clarko is avaliable of course.

Any word on who the potential buyer may be?
A syndicate of 30 odd US-based investors

One of the main guys leading it is Marc Seidner - an Aussie who is based in the US and sits on the GWS board.


The group of investors are already funding the Giants today, not sure in what capacity and the scale of it but there's certainly more than just a fleeting interest.

Very intresting seems like a good start that he's already on the board, as long as he's willing to pay up and not get too involved in the football side of things wouldn't really have an issue with it.

I don’t really get it. They would be losing millions of dollars for years.

Mummy is a living legend, but surely this is a bridge too far and a reckless gamble with his health.

The only scenario in which this possibly makes sense to me is if we have literally no Ruck available to play VFL and he plays as an emergency.

In 2022 our three listed Rucks must be able to cover all AFL fixtures.

Love the media team. One bright light to offset our A+ coach and medical team
