    Birds of Prey

    Just taking a look at the DVD "Birds of Prey" that was released by the club in 1998, and what an excellent story it was. It took us up to the non-merger with Melbourne and into the 1998 season. I'm still annoyed no mention was made of Ian Dicker's contribution to the club in terms of our...

    Rumour Eddie Betts rumour

    There's a suggestion doing the rounds that Eddie Betts may be in hospital recovering from an appendix operation. I don't know it to be true. I saw him yesterday and seemed happy enough. Just thought I'd throw it in to see if anyone knows anything.

    Please explain ........

    Forget the players or which team they play for ..... Why does Trent Cotchin get a fine for his incident, but Easton Wood cops a game? I'm not weighing up whether a player should get games or not, I'm just trying to understand why two incidents are almost identical, and they score different...

    Grand Final Football Budget

    I've often considered that the SANFL have a certain allegiance towards W-WT Eagles, today I'm almost sure of it. I bought a copy of the Grand Final Football Budget and what do I see on the cover? A picture of Malcolm Blight wearing his warriors jumper, another picture of an Eagles player, not...

    From a proud "Band wagoner"

    As a Hawks supporter since 1968, I've grown a little tired of being called a band wagoner from opposition supporters, so I responded in another thread. I thought I'd place this response in our own board as well as some other Hawks may like to read it. This is in response to a Richmond...

    Umpires ... just get out of the way

    We are told time and again there is no excuse whatsoever for a player making contact with an umpire. Last week we saw umpires loitering around behind the Hawks banner knowing full well the players were running out on the ground. Puopolo sprints through the banner at full speed and collides with...

    Australia vs India - Third Test @ MCG - Dec 26-30 - Day 3

    Michael says, "On a pitch like this, a bowler's change of pace is important". Yes and no Michael, a bowler mixing up his pace is important on ALL wickets, not just the MCG.

    Hawks Nest

    I posted here because I didn't want non-Hawthorn people reading this. As a long standing Hawks supporter, I hate to criticize the club in any way, but need to get something off my chest. I was wondering if anyone else has experienced dissatisfaction with services (or lack thereof) when it...
