Warren Tredrea joined Triple M's Rush Hour on Friday, and brought with him some intriguing audio about Adelaide's inconsistent injury reports.
"I feel sorry for their members, because I don't think there's been any transparency," he said.
"I've gone back in history on this year 2018...I don't believe what they're saying.
"I think the Adelaide media and the Crows fans are being treated with a bit of disdain at the moment from what's coming out of the footy club."
It featured multiple occasions in which Adelaide tried to shrug off the severity of an injury, only for it to be proven incorrect later down the road.
"They're trying to avoid the gorilla in the room," Tredders said.
"But the problem is the gorilla's six foot eight and 160 kilos."
