No good for him or Cairns. With Majok Deng already out.

Best thing would be to bring college seniors in now.

It's a loss, lately it’s looked like Kelly was trying to get him more defensive minded, his seasons so far has been average. Imo the long lay off could be contributing to the injuries, most players had more than twelve months off.

When s Deng back?

Things could go from bad to really ugly for Cairns, with 3 games upcoming vs United with Hopson and White soon to return

I'm sure he slipped on wet patch that king's player left when he fell and floor wipers failed to mop up effectively or at all. And was right in front of Kelly.
Surely refs have duty of care to ensure playing surface is dry. Mind you, in South Australia most stadiums leak, yet most play.
But didn't Sean Rehn and others sue AFL over unsafe surface in centre bounce. Noi could say his NBA dream was taken away by this injury, and yes, I know this wouldn't be main reason he doesn't make NBA, but might be proveable in court.

Damn, that sucks for him & for the snakes.

But mostly it sucks for me because I enjoy watching him play. Why are the injury gods so cruel to me?

Maybe he can watch some tape and learn how to play defence? He's a talented offensive player, but I don't think he could defend my grandmother.

"Imo the long lay off could be contributing to the injuries, most players had more than twelve months off."

Conditioning is a problem.

If it hadn't been for Kouat Noi Joe, I'd been married a long time ago.

Wishing him the speediest recovery, it's not right for his season to end like this.

I wonder how Cairns will go from here.

The offence seems to often stall when the ball is with Noi.

Correct on most counts, but probs not in court of law. That said, onus of proof in employment law is "on the balance of probabilities".

Yes, the umpires have a duty of care re player safety and playing conditions (of facilities). Legally though, the umpires' employer (NBL prob) would hold ultimate liability (unless buck stops with Cairns club).

Longer lay-off relates directly to conditioning. Even if general fitness is diligently done by players in off-season, it’s the sudden changes of direction and “power movements” that cause knee/ankle etc injuries. You don’t get that outside of games/ simulations of games in scrimmages.
