This is probably the worst injury crisis I can remember at the Dees.

But, just goes to show how good the Tigers this year and Magpies last year were in still winning despite being decimated.

Better coached, more confidence, winning culture, better depth.

Well the problem isn't just the injuries, but the amount of guys who came into the season underdone because of injuries and surgeries during the off-season. The only two of our best players who didn't miss big chunks of the off-season from memory were Gawn and Salem, and they've been probably our two best players. We hit the ground crawling and the current injury spate means we can't get up.

What do you mean cant get up? We are 1 win out of the 8 and if we pull off a win over here and beat GWS we could be in the 8 by the byes plus we'll start getting Lever and May back then a few others. We've bled some new players who wouldnt otherwise have gotten a game. Silver lining mother ******

IF we win yep, don't think it'll happen but if we could somehow go 2-2 over the next 4 our season is back on.

The upside to all the injuries is that it gives us supporters a tried and tested, if not really justifiable excuse as a retort to Demon bagging acquaintances. As in "Yeh, but we have 23 of our best 22 out injured"

Well last 2 games over here ive been to have been wins over Eagles(missed the final) and im going friday night so im the lucky charm. but nah just hoping we can pull it off instead of getting belted and Eagles have been pretty **** this year anyway but wouldnt be surprised if its a 15goal loss. GWS is always doable at the G then crows up north with Lever back and no OMac makes our backline look pretty dangerous on the rebound then get that fat campaigner back allows even more attacking from D50

I've got more confidence in a win this week than Queens B'day ... not much confidence at all .. but still more. I do think we can beat GWS and Adelaide tho. Parts of our game have been improving, there is even a chance that without Melksham in the team, other players will be more conscious of the way they send it inside 50, as they can no longer rely on Melk to get it at some point and actually kick to a target

Lol 'if we win all the games, we'll be in the 8!'

Good:
- Hannan seems like he is only a fortnight or so away from playing something
- Lever. All of a sudden (he was still a month away last week) has come good. Please do not rush him back
- Pruess looks like he actually just had a standard injury. One for the ages
- Maynard. Not that he is really going to save us but still good to have fit players to choose from, not that we will pick them necessarily - see Viney.
- JKH - with all the other injuries going on, it might be a good time for JKH to be fit. Could get a decent run at it, being semi-versatileishkinda.

Very Bad:
- AVB. I can't keep up with list places and all that. Is he on the LTI list? He was 4-6 away 6 weeks ago and no one even knows now when he'll be right. We signed him up for another 2 or 3 years didn't we? Sounds like something we'd do, but he's delist worthy. If Kent was let go, AVB should be too. Just can't get on the park, even though he's decent when he does.
- Nev. Just sucks.
- Melk. Best player injured. Watch this 4-5 balloon out.

Fugly:
- May. Just wow. Was 2-3 away 6 weeks ago and is still 2-3 away apparently. So probably 4-6. I'd head to the pub for a pint too.
- Joel Smith. 5 weeks away on March the 20th. 4-6 on May the 14th. That's all time 4-6 right there. Criminal. SS was spot on.
- KK. We hardly knew ye.

After the bye things should start to look better. Famous last words.

I don’t think we’ll see May this year. I mean you can see him from outer space he’s so fat, but I don’t think we’ll see him on the park

We need to find another way to monetize this asset cause it ain’t going to be helping us sell finals tickets

Let’s ideate (**** I hate that word). I’ll start

- some sort of bottomless pete’s Type set up. Come for the beast stay for the feast. We need to replace that pokies revenue we lost. Restaurants are all cash chop
