    Well done buddy. And a capital 1 at that!

    I see a few good options for next year in that list. Good players coming back from LTI who probably won’t score too highly in the few games they play at the end of this year, giving them a tasty price for next year. I’m looking at Barlow and Kreuzer in particular.
    Otten listed as test is also a good sign, although I read they will bring him back with a couple of weeks in the SA league.

    That is a terrible format to read.. Any chance it can be listed like normal? Easy to miss players with the paragraph style instead of a list.

    Also why hasnt Ian Callinan been listed as an injury for Adelaide over the last few weeks? Is that because he is Rookie Listed?

    I swear the Dogs must test Higgins groin every week.

    Daniel Harris doesn’t seem to be listed in the list of injuries for GC17; hopefully this means he’ll back in Round 10. Also, Ian Callinan isn’t listed for the Crows. Does this mean he’ll be making comeback in the SANFL/SANFL Reserves this weekend?

      He hasn’t played for the Crows yet, so it’s not really a come back.

      I believe he will be playing in the SANFL for Centrals this week. I would expect 1-2 games in the SANFL before he gets a call up to the Crows.

      A customer at my work is Central District footballer Chris Gowans, I asked him yesterday about Ian Callinan and Chris said, “Ian will play at centrals in 2 weeks and Craigy said he will get games at the Crows this season, there is a spot for him to be promoted from the rookie list”.

      i reckon about 4 weeks untill we see him in a crows jumper

        Strange because he is listed on the AFL website injury list as “indefinite”………..not that every thing on there is gospel.

      Haha, couldn’t agree with The Pack more re: Higgins!

      Whenever he does play next, I’d suggest that Monty on fanfooty could save some time by adding a permanent bandaid to him.

      My players on the park atm averages add up to 2056 not incl Captain at the mo yet my team consistently underperforms so I’m wallowing just under 20k rank..but if i did manage to get one thing right it was saying at the start of the year that no matter how fluffy the Higgins story is that I’m gonna steer clear. Twice bitten prior to this year. If it looks like a duck and it walks like a duck..

      But moving on..Suckling.. Also seems to have the bandaid on DT all the frickn time. PLEASE play Suckers!!

    Does anyone have any idea what’s going on with Jolly? Haven’t heard anything since last week when they said he’ll probably miss 2 but now he’s listed as Test. Would be great for me if he plays as I was hoping he’d have a couple of good games before I trade him.
