    Hawk Talk Podcast

    Hey All Just giving a bit of a shout out to the lads behind Hawk Talk Podcast. Great podcast by two very dedicated and knowledgeable Hawthorn fans. They pop out regular podcasts on the team and seem to have a few inside whispers as they regularly attend Hawthorn functions, training sessions and...

    M9 scuffle and wash up.

    Was in M9 standing and enjoying a good game. In the final quarter, turned to the side and saw a Hawthorn supporter out cold, on the ground, and the police jumped some Richmond fan. My mate and some others got him into the recovery position before police and aid workers took over. Didn't see...

    Can you play Strats, Schoey, Gibson & Gilham in the same backline?

    News "... too many Hawks too satisfied with their reputations."

    This article sums up the a lot of the Hawthorn problem in one line. "Perhaps that made Hawthorn's lack of effort even more stark. What is becoming patently obvious, though, is the gap between perception and reality with a side making a habit of becoming the AFL's great tease. And some...

    Sam Mitchell Discussion.

    Just throwing his name up for discussion as he never seems to be under the microscope. Is not having his best season and that stupid coat-hanger job on Jake King, in the first quarter, was hardly inspiring from a leader and indicative of a guy under a bit of pressure. Whilst he wasn't in our...

    Malthouse Pies - 1 GF win from 5 attempts

    Just thought it was interesting to note that during the Malthouse reign, the Pies had only won the GF on one occasion out of 5 attempts. Probably lucky the Saints showed up that year.

    Are we the worst overhead marking side in the AFL?

    How surprising is it if a Hawthorn player takes a overhead mark in a contested situation?? Hugely!! We have next to no one who can do one of the greatest aspects of watching AFL football. Our backline struggles when the ball goes in the air, with our serviceable 6 footers looking for the punch...

    One flag in three years isn't so bad Geelong.

    I mean that's the same as Hawthorn and Collingwood/Bulldogs/Saints. Wasn't as if you dominated or anything.

    Brown: Forward or back?

    Watching the game yesterday, I kept thinking that Campbell Brown should have been played in the backline. He did get one goal and provides defensive forward pressure, but surely with that side we had heaps of other options: Peterson, Hooper, Ozzie, Whitecross... to do the same job. The ball also...

    2010. Is that the ball game?

    Today's game versus Sydney might be a little reflective of our season. We let the thing slip early, pulled hard to bring it back into a positive position, but in the end our poor form early caught up with us. Finals contention is still in our own hands, but shocking form over the last...

    The Brown forward experiment is over.

    With two wins in the past two weeks, and Campbell Brown leading the way with his hard nut best in our defensive half, I think it's time to put to bed the experiment of Brown playing in attack. We've got the goal sneaks and forward pressure in Hooper, Osborne, Rioli and co to handle the job...

    How many weeks for Daniel Jackson for headbutting?

    After Campbell Brown gave him a bit of a welcome to the big league, Jackson lost his cool and went the weak heatbutt. How many weeks are the AFL paying out these days, for gutless headbutts? 2-3 weeks? http://www.afl.com.au/video/tabid/76/videoid/54243/campbell+brown+bump/default.aspx#VideoPlayerB

    Question on Umpiring Positioning and McLaren.

    Why did McLaren start the first quarter at the Hawthorn attacking end?? Then the second... Then the third... And finally starter the fourth in the middle. The first 3/4's the lovely McLaren started as the umpire in our forward line. WHY? Surely they should have switched it up?
