  1. “I’ll be right to play – wait – no, cracked tibia” – Pendles’ mantra for the next month.


  2. Sorry for kicking a side while they’re down but how the f@#k are North travelling so badly with only one injury and that being to a player they didn’t have most of last year anyway??????????


  3. Can’t help but notice the significance of the Carlton and Collingwood injury lists.

    Also, not sure how Pendlebury can get away with only 2 weeks with a cracked tibia. Seems a fairly significant injury to me. Of course, I am no doctor, but I for one wouldn’t be surprised if he missed another week. Seems like Gary Ablett all over again, but I’m going to hold him, like I did with Gazza.


  4. Injury news on the whole Carlton Team, they have softcock disease, basically means you will never see them put there head over the ball.


  5. Every time I see Antoni Grover listed I always think of sesame street and have a sly giggle to myself.


  6. Cant wait for Heppell and Hibberd to return for my Dons.
    Before Hibberd went down on Anzac day, he was actually in some really good form. People have underrated how much he means to our Structure. Not complaining though, as other teams have a lot more key outs than us.


  7. Max, PA, BigRuss….. I deleted the comment.

    We don’t mind pretty much any comments…. and I think we cut a fair bit of slack. Please keep in mind we do have a LOT of younger readers also, so try and maintain some level of respect with your comments. Cheers BS


  8. Got some ripping stories for you this evening:
    * An Adelaide small forward has already signed to play with Richmond in 2013.
    * A Brownlow Medallist’s missus was caught orally stimulating a tv star on the very night he won the medal.
    * Wayne Carey was the first member of the AFL to join the mile high club. On a domestic flight if you don’t mind.
    * a department store’s spokesmodel was caught shamelessly rooting an ex-TV-game host in the men’s toilets at the Logies.
    * a defender that has switched clubs didn’t suffer the injury he said he did a few years ago. He was caught out with someone’s missus and that someone took a baseball bat to him.
    * That same individual has also been intimate with a late night news reader.
    * There are a number of gay/bi/curious players in the AFL right now. Motts was surprised when he heard the name of this particularly hardnut Defender.

    I spent most of the evening with my mouth agape. Source: a recent ex-player.


  9. Anyone know anything on Enright? Brought him in last week, salivating at the prospect of a massive 120 vs GWS – and now it looks like it could be 2 weeks of donuts!!
