Well in any case I like the 9s and can’t wait for them to start!Nobody has said that.
Oh, that's easy: you like the Nines and mistakenly thought that I was against it. Despite my protestations and without double-checking, you have been acting as if that was the case ever since.
You're having a conversation with yourself where the credibility of the Nines is reduced to its injury record versus Trials. You've done this all on your own.
If you had read back, or read at all, you'd have seen that I think the Nines is a fine idea, post-season. The Nines is made for playing a bit looser, give the quick guys a chance to stretch and don't worry too much about up-and-in defence.
If you'd bothered to ask, I'd've told you that I have no reason to believe that more injuries occur in the Nines, just that doing it pre-season means that any injuries that occur have significant impact on the coming season, their being so close.
I did use the phrase, "pre-season massacre", you can understand now that my emphasis was on the "pre-season" part. As to my use of the word, "massacre", well yes, I'll give you that. My fault for thinking that you might have a sense of scale.
Wonder whom will play?
