    why does Bartel have a “subject to Fitness” on DT?

    • Warnie


      July 6, 2011 at 6:00 pm

      No idea. He doesn’t appear on any injury list, but it seems to be updated via their feed (ie. it includes Smith, Iles, and other new injuries).

    Why does Goldstein have the bandaid on DT website?

    Not long before Hawks will struggle to put a team on the park.

    39 players on the main list + 9 rookies.
    16 players injured.
    23 players available, but how many rookies can they play?

    Hopefully my eliminator opposition has the same issues with injuries as i might if buddy and roo end up missing. Anyone think it’s worth trading to keep going another week if it means potentially jeopardising league finals? Or just stay focused on winning my leagues?

      If your average score is high enough for you to have a realistic shot at it, go all out on eliminator, unless your leagues are cash ones.

    Where does this injury list come from? Looks similar to the one on the Herald Sun website. Just wondering as the Sandilands update was only a guess at the time, as Freo hadn’t updated their website, he is now listed on their website as 3-4 weeks…

    After benching all players with a bye (and Didak).. there’s only one other possible player on the bench across the four lines… Seb Tape. Add Franklin and Roo concerns… gonna be a lean weak :D
