Adelaide coach Matthew Nicks won't delay crisis talks after his side's continuing AFL horror show, admitting they are in a "world of hurt".
The Crows narrowly avoided their lowest AFL score on Sunday afternoon in a 12.10 (82) to 4.5 (29) spanking from Gold Coast. Adelaide will remain in their Queensland quarantine hub ahead of next Sunday's clash with Brisbane.
Dominating clearances (38-25), the Suns had almost double the contested possessions of the Crows and the first 12 forward-50 entries in the first quarter.
A shoulder injury to Rory Atkins in his 100th game didn't help, Nicks admitting he wasn't sure where to begin the analysis.
"Good question .... we're in a world of hurt at this point - nowhere near the level," he said.
