South4 Flag, have you seen our injury list? Langlands, Masten, Smith, Yeo, Sinclair, Grey, Taylor, Busher, Giblett and McInnes would be in our best 12 players. Try taking the likes of Schloithe, Shaw, Strom, Higgins, Schlensog, Ninyette, Parker, Main and a couple more out of your team and see how you go. Remember when the Dockers rested a bunch of senior players on the eve of finals a few years back and got pumped by what would have otherwise been a weaker team? That's what happens. Add to that list Baldwin-Wright and McPartland, not stars, but handy, Fisher having virtually no impact and Rogers also missing (yes, his own fault, I know), and you have one of the worst injury lists I have ever witnessed. 

Get this man a violin.

Tickle me Elmo, you’ll be the one getting the violin out in a couple of weeks when we get 4 key players back from injury. Heaven forbid we don’t suffer anymore rotten luck between now and then.

In fact we could have up to eight players back. McInness, Sinclair, Grey, Masten, Busher, Rogers, Richardson and McPartland.

Actually make that 9, Giblett should be available to return also. So that's half our starting 18 to return who weren't available on Thursday night and we still have Langlands, Josh Smith, Loersch, DBW and now Taylor out for significant time or the season and Fisher might be doubtful in a couple of weeks.

I think Ted is on the money.  Subi went through a similar situation last year with 8 to 10 first 22 players out with injury at any given time and subsequently missed the finals.  Whilst disappointing, the upside was that the likes of the Hickmott brothers, the Fullgrabes, Nick Martin, Jack Beverley, Ben Reid and so on were able to get extended runs in the seniors which is bearing fruit this year.  I have no doubt the Dees will be much stronger when their A graders return but will also have more depth with several young blokes getting valuable experience in the interim so IMO, the rest of the comp will have to sit up and take note.  Will it translate into success this year? who knows but it will certainly have a positive impact over the next few seasons if Subi from last year is anything to go by.

What has happened to Richardson? Doesn't;t appear on injury list and hasn't been playing reserves. 

Hopefully from 19 June we will have Masten, Yeo, Sinclair, Grey, McPartland, Rogers, Giblett and McInnes available, with Langlands only a week or two after. There was some talk of bringing some back through the reserves. I don't think that's necessary for players of that experience. If guys like, say, Masten, Yeo or Grey are a bit rusty play them forward. Got to give better value than Hendo or Browne even if a bit underdone. Too soon for an update on Taylor but a quick google search suggests a punctured lung is a 6-8 recovery, so probably best to resign ourselves to not seeing him again this season. Just got to hope Fisher is not too bad and can overcome his injury with the break.

Hope you're right with the returns.
We would have expected to beat EF.
Particularly at MRP.

We have two weeks to get some of those players back on the field. I agree that they should be able to come straight in, and by-pass the ressies. The way I see it? Looks like the light in that tunnel is starting to brighten. We were always going to take 2 & 1 out of the last three games though we did not expect the shellacking we took on Thursday night.
We must beat EF but then we have the big three again, of which only WP will be a home game. If we are to get back as finals prospects we will need 2 & ! again. 
After that we have 2 games v EP (1 at home), Swans away, WCE away game at MRP, C at home then finish with Peel away.
The sooner we start to see key players returning the sooner the better. 
There are 10 games to go and we would have to win 6 or 7 to be sure of finals. No reason we cannot achieve that, but we must work on re-building our percentage.
We just have to want it and hope injuries are kept to a minimum in the meantime..

Yes, forgot Busher. With him, we may have up to 9 additions. Not often you would make that many changes from one game to the next. Hopefully Taylor will be the only forced change. I'd leave Avery in. I thought he was good v Subi. Not that I expect a 19 year old with one league game to replicate the sort of run off half back that Taylor has given us, but he is a good size and a good mark, and should benefit from having Sinclair and Giblett alongside. 

The other changes... 8 out of these 9: Browne, Hitchcock, Clark, Davis, Hendo, Gray, Steel, Sing, Hayward. I thought about adding Eddo after his weak effort v Subi. He was far from alone, but as a senior player, he needed to show a lot more intensity. However, he too will benefit from having better players back in the team. Eddo's game is not winning his own ball, it's a running game, linking up along the wing. So I think he stays, but he should be on notice. When Langlands comes back, he'd better have had have a couple of good games.

Just realised 3 came out of last weeks side.
Busher, Nicholas and McPartland.
That is 14 players out.
And Fisher during the game.
FMD and John Townsend writes an article like that.
How much worse can it get.
The ground announcer has to go.

Why does the ground announcer have to go DF?

I read in the West that the ground announcer made a "bizarre comment" after Perth scored their goal in the last stages of the game. They didn't say what the comment was but indicated that it may trigger an official complaint from Subiaco.
