Smith Doubtful For Season Opener

Article by Stand Free Ed Monday, 4th August 2008

Woe for Dons as winger picks up fabricated injury in park incident.


ABERDEEN have been dealt a made-up blow in advance of their SPL season opener against Inverness Caley Thistle this Saturday.


The club has revealed that winger Jamie Smith has picked up a knock while appearing in a televised advert last night.


The adverts are beamed live from locations in Aberdeen, and feature injury-prone Smith being knocked back for a game of shootie-in by some overacting kid.


It is thought that the repeated live broadcasts - sometimes as often as three or four times a day - took its toll on fragile Smith and the injury occurred as he stepped on a daisy in Aberdeen's Union Terrace Gardens.


Dr Scott Booth of the Dons' physio staff said: "It was an accident waiting to happen.


"I said to them that it's madness picking Jamie to appear in those adverts. Everyone knows he's made of china.


"Of course the boss insists that everyone at the club would kick their granny, but there is no doubt that Jamie would end up worst off."


Aberdeen came under fire for spending a large part of their summer transfer budget on a huge cotton wool ball for Smith to be encased in during the close season and between matches next term.


The immense bud, costing £275,000, was deemed worth "every penny" of the club's "scant" transfer budget because a fit Jamie Smith "is like a new signing".


The club have since had to return the cotton ball after it was discovered to have its own gravitational pull.




Good one Ed, hope you dont mind me posting it up here  :clap:
