      would think presti will be back if fit, due to their flogging.

    Simon Hogan has “depression”? I didn’t think you could disclose mental illness as an injury

      ofcourse depression can be listed as a injury…. if they havent been dropped and its stopping them playing… its the reason why they are out of the starting 22

    Calvin, can’t believe you tried the bye joke again.

    Higgins – take off the high heels and put on some boots. Get on the field. Cost me good money and a trade.

    Half these players should be listed as having torn heartstrings. Bunch of pushes. Time to man up. Were turning into soccer players.

    Lol @ Swan

    You’d think Prestia would be named this week if he’s no longer ‘sore’.

    Higgins’ “groin soreness” could might have well just said “time of the month”… the big softie, he already got his bye and wants more rest time?!

    Did anyone even see what happened to him during his last game? All I know was he was hell quiet and did stuff all for 3 quarters but luckily junked it up in Q4, and apparently hurt his fragile lil groin in the process?

    anyone else think Otten will have to come back through the SANFL when he eventually does get right to play?

    With welsh out that gives Hibberd a little bit better job security. Although the fact Myers is off the list does the opposite…

    Can everyone who is bagging out Higgins as a “Softie” or “Pussy” please F*** Off!
    Playing for Eastlake TAC divison 1/2 I know the physical stress that AFL players get put under in an AFL game.
    Scientifically, some people are just born with less ablilty to run out games at a certain level before injuring themselves.
    Put Simply: There are Dane Swan’s and there are Shaun Higgins’

    hmm, the mailman is confused what to do with andy otten. getting rid of duigan this week in order to get the chapster, wait and decide next week

      May 4, 2011 at 6:39 pm

      im trading out duigan this week and otten next week probally. I have bench cover so both of them would be sitting on bench not even as an emergency so i might as well get rid of the one who will leak a little bit of cash
