Devil strikes early: Liam Anthony out for six weeks
- Updated: March 27, 2009
You knew it was coming. Yes, Dean Laidley has cut open the hearts of fantasy coaches yet again.
I am sure that I don’t need to go through the history yet again of Dean Laidley sabotaging fantasy teams with his implacably evil mind games surrounding the first couple of rounds of the season. This year it’s Liam Anthony being revealed AFTER FANTASY LOCKOUT as having a stress fracture of the foot that will sideline him for six weeks which happened BEFORE FANTASY LOCKOUT at Thursday training. This is another disaster for all of us who bought Anthony, some of us to start him, and will leave countless teams facing zeroes and lost opportunity for cash cow rewards.
I can hear the Junkyard Devil cackling from here. Enjoy it while you can Dean, because you’re going to a dark, evil place when you retire. And no, I don’t mean the Mornington Peninsula.
