    Autopsy Round 13, 2021: Hawks sink the Swans

    Just a little story about Poowong that involves my older son. Anyhow, the kid is/was a jet basketball player and before picking footy as number 1 and giving up Rep & State Basketball had the opportunity to go to high school in the USA on scholarship. Anyways, back in day he is playing u12 (1)...

    Unofficial Preview 2020 Draft Discussion

    I have it on excellent authority from sources inside The Hangar, that there is a hell of lot of fisting going on down at the Scum. Apparently, since Hirdy and Dodoro demonstrated the benefits of fisting to the playing group during a team bonding exercise it’s become all the rage and now they’re...

    2020 FA, Draft and Trade HYPOTHETICAL thread...now with new DFA speculation!

    Are we in the market to trade our later round picks for the Bulldogs 1st - (pick 12, I believe)? If so, I want Eddie Ford really really really badly. I know we won’t take him at 4, but I honestly believe this kid has massive potential and could be the midfield beast we need. He’s a great size...

    List Mgmt. Should I stay or should I go now? End of season list management discussion (now continued for 2020)

    I agree with you regarding Nash and his footy IQ up forward. His main sport growing up was Rugby, (more than Gaelic), so if this experiment is to work in the longer term, he can’t continue to play forward - he has to go behind the ball where his natural athletic traits would be complimented by...

    What would you do if we merged or folded?

    If Hawthorn ever folded or merged there would never be and could never be another. However, if that day did arrive I would paraphrase the thoughts of General Douglas MacArthur during his speech to the Marine Corps of Cadets at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, N.Y., May 12, 1962; "Today...

    Welcome to Hawthorn - Emerson Jeka

    Apart from this year, Torin Baker nursed and developed Emerson Jeka from 7th through 11th Grade - his most successful time(s) at junior level. He knows his football and ability inside and out, so I wouldn't be surprised if he provided a fair bit of I.P to recruiters regarding Emerson's strengths...

    Welcome to Hawthorn - Emerson Jeka

    Emerson is a school mate of my son, there is 3 years difference in age, but they do pal around and train together. So our household is pretty chuffed he's a Hawk. Downside my Nephew missed out - so there is also a fair bit of heartbreak. He played Vic Metro, Won his NAB Team Best and Fairest and...

    What is the problem with Kaiden Brand?

    At the time, I just put it down to game stress and passion, but after he was delisted today my son came to me and said, “Do you reckon it’s because of that game at Werribee, where he went a bit crazy?”. Whilst in no way would it have been ‘the reason’, it just got me thinking that perhaps it...
