    The League Injuries Thread

    The preseason injuries have already started with Sam Docherty set to miss his second season in a row following him rupturing the same ACL that he had previously injured. This is terrible news to everyone but Adelaide as Docherty has become a pretty handy player and was named co-captain of Carlton not even two months ago.

    He looked in great condition to. I really feel sorry for him and the Blues really needed him back.

    That's going to hurt them again. I thought Adelaide were always going to get pick 1, but this type of good senior player out for the season probably secures them irrelevancy and another spoon. Get well Sam, and get *!*!*!*!ed Carlton.

    I think it's less that we dodged a bullet and more that Sydney voluntarily walked in front of one

    In all seriousness that's just shit luck for him. He doesn't have a history of groin problems does he?
    AFLW Premiers 2018

    After speaking to Obie for about fourty-five minutes on the telephone we
    Finally arrived at the truth of the matter and said that we had to go down
    And pick up the garbage, and also had to go down and speak to him at the
    Police officer's station. So we got in the red vw microbus with the
    Shovels and rakes and implements of destruction and headed on toward the
    Police officer's station.
    Now friends, there was only one or two things that Obie coulda done at
    The police station, and the first was he could have given us a medal for
    Being so brave and honest on the telephone, which wasn't very likely, and
    We didn't expect it, and the other thing was he could have bawled us out
    And told us never to be seen driving garbage around the vicinity again,
    Which is what we expected, but when we got to the police officer's station
    There was a third possibility that we hadn't even counted upon, and we was
    Both immediately arrested. Handcuffed.
    And I said "Obie, I don't think I can pick up the garbage with these handcuffs on. "
    "He said, "Shut up, kid. Get in the back of the patrol car. "

    Missed a large chunk of 2018 due to his groin (insert groin jokes here).

    He was managing it ok until Geelong gave him some kind of groin injection after the first 4-6 weeks of the season, his season was ruined.

    He's just not durable. Poor guy but that's football.

    Didn't know that. I just assume if he's injured that it's his knee.

    I wonder if they will add a 2nd Goddard to their playing list?

    Not really their MO to add old rubbish players - more GWS's style.

    Now if he was 25 and maybe a little worse they'd be all over him.

    Surely they will only look at delisted GWS players. Isn't that their recruiting system?

    They have two mids training with them for that one spot, one of which is Gibbons from Willy.
    I don't know what role he plays at AFL level given he's a 175cm ball magnet mid at VFL level but it would be great to see him get his chance. God knows Carlton could do with an extra mature body in their rotation as Dow and Walsh develop.
    Murphy's getting long in the tooth and after Cripps, Ed Curnow and Fisher their cupboard looks bare.
