    Can Hawthorn succeed while ignoring the elite end of the draft? - Part 2

    Are you forgetting these "honest talks" Clarko had with his older players? You can dress it up however you like, but he was obviously encouraging Mitchell and Lewis to explore their options elsewhere because he wanted to clear cap space for T.Mitchell and O'Meara. He had the same talk with Hodge...

    List Mgmt. Best young key forward in the game

    Yes, he's the best at being inconsistent and going missing, like he did against the Gold Coast on the weekend.

    Analysis Worst All-Australian selection of all time?

    I saw more than enough to know Daniel and Maynard were clearly better players. If you searched the All-Australian thread from last year, you might find I'm hardly the only one with that view too. But hey, who could possibly argue with the brilliant minds in the media? After all, the media is...

    Hawkins - How many

    Hold your horses there, you're not allowed to have that view here. Hawkins would never ever intentionally hurt anyone. All past history is "totally irrelevant".

    so this... is the power... of bigfooty likes...whoa... All those likes and you don't know how to use the quote function properly... Pretty laughable username you have there. Naughton is objectively a better mark, better aerially and better at ground level than all of them. He and Allen can...

    Can Hawthorn succeed while ignoring the elite end of the draft? - Part 2

    And yet he pushed Mitchell and Lewis out of the club after a top 4 finish in order to accommodate his stupid list strategy. A bit like how Voss tried to push Bradshaw and Rischitelli out to Carlton to bring in Fev.

    Analysis Worst All-Australian selection of all time?

    Ah, the media, the pinnacle of football knowledge. How could I possibly doubt the wisdom of Damien Barrett and Tony Jones? :$

    Analysis Worst All-Australian selection of all time?

    Who cares about the Port Adelaide B&F? He had no business being ahead of Maynard and Daniel. It's as simple as that.

    Hawkins - How many

    Actually it's more along the lines of you lost the argument, and now you're running away. Hawkins raised his elbow higher than the natural arc. He was probably intending to give Steven May a whack and he did. His bad record further confirms it.

    Hawkins - How many

    Because he is a thug. The MRO takes prior offences into account, why shouldn't everyone else? A natural handballing action wouldn't result in the elbow swinging that high, but he swung his high, and fractured May's eyesocket as a result.

    Can Hawthorn succeed while ignoring the elite end of the draft? - Part 2

    But you're the one making a fool of yourself insisting the scenarios are completely different. Both lists were at a stage where they badly needed youth, both teams had coaches that thought the premiership window was wide open, and both went down the route of tradin in older, experienced players...

    Adrian Dodoro: Football’s Biggest Fraud IMO

    Stop the presses, the Bombers nearly beat the mighty Swans, Dodoro is a genius after all.

    Hawkins - How many

    You say that, but you don't really know his intention at all. You're just guessing with your own biased mindset, but naturally can't admit it. I was never backtracking? That was my position from the start and still is. The handball was completed, and he raised his elbow as he was swinging it...

    Hawkins - How many

    He raised it after the handball had been completed. Again, no reason to do that, but Hawkins has been a thug his whole career so it's not surprising.

    Hawkins - How many

    Like I already said earlier, if it was intentionally trying to hit May and disguise it, he's done it pretty successfully. There was no need to raise his elbow, but he did, and as a result, May is seriously injured.

    Analysis Worst All-Australian selection of all time?

    Damn, imagine being this angry over the selection of Darcy Byrne-Jones being criticized. Everyone with football knowledge knows Daniel and Maynard were the far better HBFs that year, but Byrne-Jones was given a spot for some charity Port representation, and because he's an ugly mug with a...

    Exactly, a gun like him can play anywhere and solve any problem.

    List Mgmt. Best young key forward in the game

    Good to know you're biased. McKay has been inconsistent his whole career. One week he's kicking 7 against us with an undermanned defence, the next week he barely makes an impact, and can only score his second goal on the back of a free to Silvagni who goes off injured. McKay makes no impact on...

    It must be hard for you knowing there's a thread on the main board you can't talk about your beloved Tigers in, hey?
