    I will preface this by saying I didn't see the game or presser last night, but if Bevo did mention injuries as a mitigating factor that is a bit of loser's limp. The best teams are resilient and find a way to manage key injuries - Carlton have almost their entire key defensive stocks out, Geelong has had Dangerfield out, Richmond had Dusty out for weeks, Melbourne and Collingwood have had their no 1 ruckmen out. We did it last year when Bruce and McLean went out late in the season, and of course we did it in 2016. West Coast had Sheppard, Nic Nat, and Gaff out for the last month of the 2018 season. Melbourne had to adjust without Tomlinson (who was on fire until injured) and simply replaced him with Petty and didn't miss a beat last year.

    The cavalry is arriving in any event. There are absolutely zero excuses for us in 2022.
    We are the goon squad and we're coming to town. Beep Beep.

    MM, Beveridge talks about injuries a lot compared to 2016. He has for a number of years.

    2016 was different because the players coming in were all early draft picks whereas now, if we get an injury the players coming up are at best 2nd and 3rd rounders (except JUH). Makes a big difference.
