I see only one club has fewer injuries than Freo.

Will people be complimenting Weber here or send their bouquets directly to the club?

You'd have to wait and see if S Hill Ballantyne or Bennell have another set back between now and when they're available.

It's important to note though, even a broken clock is right twice a day.

I think you'll find, Morgan, that the appropriate attitude will be, "See, we've got hardly any injuries and we are still losing - Lyon has to go".

There should be a list for mental injuries, RL being the injury.
RL: Ross Lyoned
Most of 22 would be afflicted post game, as they are forced to review our low scoring losses.

You do realise that “test” actually means they are good to go, if you take out all the “test” and “available” from the lists provided you’ll find the are quite a few teams with less than 6 injuries. As an aside, how bad is Sturt’s concussion if he’s now listed as 4 weeks, that’s a worry.

I like the way they are handling Sturt. Build his body and tank whilst he recovers from concussion.

He shouldn't play this year anyway. He's too skinny.

The next big thing that kid.

Here's a more accurate list for you Morgan. I've gone through and eliminated all players listed on the injury list who are 'available' or 'test' as these players don't really belong. I've also eliminated players that aren't physically injured like Murray (drug suspension) and Steven (mental health break).

In addition, I've added a column for players considered to be out for a month or longer (long term injuries) in which if they're listed as 3 to 5 weeks, I'll take the average (4). This list also includes players like Ebert, Kolodjashnij and Sturt who are 'indefinite' concussions along with everyone listed as 'indefinite' or 'TBC' which could be less than a month.

Club - No of Injuries - Long Term Injuries (4 or more wks)
Adelaide - 3 - 1
Brisbane - 3 - 2
Carlton - 7 - 2
Collingwood - 7 - 3
Essendon - 10 - 3
Fremantle - 6 - 4
Geelong - 4 - 2
Gold Coast - 10 - 7
GWS - 4 - 2
Hawthorn - 3 - 3
Melbourne - 11 - 7
North Melbourne - 7 - 7
Port Adelaide - 8 - 4
Richmond - 8 - 6
St Kilda - 8 - 5
Sydney - 7 - 5
West Coast - 5 - 3
Western Bulldogs - 4 - 3

This sees 10 sides with more total injuries than Fremantle and 6 sides with more long term injuries. Overall, we're middle of the pack despite not suffering many injuries during the season. We've had our list greatly reduced in the past few weeks while many other clubs have seen a big rise in 1 to 2wk injuries and niggles.

The key problem that most people tend to go on about with the club's injuries are once players are injured, how long it takes them to get back and the recurrence of those injuries. Without spending a very long time going back through the data and stats to confirm these suspicions, I can tell you we'd be well down the bottom of that list as someone who pays a lot of attention to opposition clubs and their injury lists/management.

Honestly, an LTI usually means a big chunk of the season - a season and a bit at the most. Harley has to be getting close to the Guinness World record on an LTI - some blokes have done two knees and have come back in less time.

There's LTIs and there's LTIs - for sure. But I tell you what, our problems aren't with the injury list and Harley, Stephen, Sandi and Ballas aren't going to solve it. Belly might - someone hand him a chainsaw.

A.303 would be more efficient and a lot tidier, Polly, I have heard that Belly is a straight shooter.
