    MRP / Trib. Holeman and Plowman both Given 2 Weeks WTF

    Tom Mitchell deserves one week for the hospital pass to O’Meara, and Michael Christian deserves a medal for his worst ever decision in the case of Holman. That one is just a piss-take SURELY.

    You mean we’re in danger of a win?

    Analysis Clarko in 2019 “We’re a middle of the road team”

    1. Another ageing star is the last thing we need. 2. We didn't get rid of him. 3. No more to say.

    List Mgmt. List Management Discussion for 2021

    Scapegoating? I think Tom is a good player, and shouldn't be pushed out. Other sides will come for our better players though, that's just what will happen. If our midfield was humming along beautifully, we'd have a harder decision to make. If someone offers us a pick inside 20 for any of our...

    List Mgmt. Welcome to Hawthorn Damon Greaves - pick 14, 2018 rookie draft

    You literally said he and Ollie were the scapegoats. I don't follow you, I don't have a problem with you. I don't defend players to get likes. I defend players from stuff said about them that isn't true, and I defend them when people disrespect them. Shiels will probably need to be phased out...

    List Mgmt. Welcome to Hawthorn Damon Greaves - pick 14, 2018 rookie draft

    Look more closely and they've already addressed it. Shiels is not playing on-ball anymore. He's playing wing, half forward and holding up his end by tackling and pressuring the house down. Has made one or two mistakes by foot, no big deal. Shiels perhaps should be dropped in favour of a younger...

    List Mgmt. Welcome to Hawthorn, Ned Reeves

    Out of practice! "Clarko, isn't there a term for this, like when someone plays their first game..? What was it ...medical sub?"

    List Mgmt. Welcome to Hawthorn Damon Greaves - pick 14, 2018 rookie draft

    There's only a certain number of people here who actually perceive Liam Shiels as a whipping boy. I'm of the opinion they don't have the slightest clue what they're talking about. He is one the of the hardest working players in AFL history (look at the all-time tackle records). He may be on...

    Preview Round 10, 2021: Carlton v Hawthorn, 22 May 2021, 1.45pm @ MCG

    Against my better judgement, I'm getting excited for the game on Saturday.

    Brisbane probably. Upgrade on Lyons. Fagan knows Tom's value.

    Scape Goat Who should we trade?

    I don't think we really want to trade Mitchell, Sicily or Wingard, but the offers will force our hand. Those players are not really in a position to refuse a pay rise to go and play with premiership contenders, and we are not in a position to turn down first round picks offered in exchange.

    Your team's biggest strength, biggest weakness

    Interesting points, but I believe come finals time the Dogs might struggle to compete in the air with some of the stronger sides esp. WCE, Richmond and Geelong.

    Preview Round 10, 2021: Carlton v Hawthorn, 22 May 2021, 1.45pm @ MCG

    I don’t think many around here hate Hanrahan. He’s getting better, but he’s starting from behind the 8 ball - he’s missing some attributes to play his position to the elite level. So he must make up the difference- Puopolo style - with fantastic work-rate and attack on the man and the ball. He...

    Preview Round 10, 2021: Carlton v Hawthorn, 22 May 2021, 1.45pm @ MCG

    Reeves is the only player on our list with the abilty to turn our fortunes around (no pressure). We just need a circuit-breaker in the middle. I’m excited to see what he can do. His selection is a double whammy, as we’ll see McEvoy in the backline where he could really dominate Carlton’s forward...
