    Is it just me or does it feel like this could have been a more serious take on Han's origin? An incompetent bottom level, bureaucratic empire with prominent class-based divides between races/cultures. A "Good" (but rather shady) character of unfortunate birth/childhood caught out by bad luck...

    2005 - 4500m long, 1800mm wide 2022 - 5500m long, 2000mm wide They're the dimensions of an oversize SUV/"Truck", but only 90cm tall. Even back in 2005 they were getting too "big". With the additional safety features required now (especially in front of cockpit shell), I'm not sure how you are...

    Yes I have a young daughter. No I don't have to justify why I watched the rest of the movie when she went to bed.

    Pretty much this, or Pit Both = restart 2-3, Max disappears into the distance but fresh tires to fight Leclerc GR was racing for himself - Lewis believed it was a team (behind him). For the team, it was either both stay out or both pit. If it was Supercars, Lewis would take off early straight...

    Player Watch Welcome to Hawthorn, Denver Grainger-Barras - re-signed to 2024!

    Was about to go on a rant, then realised "draft" highlights. You're absolutely right. It would be great if DGB could develop into the defensive player Sicily is (despite being 2 inches taller, the younger KPP's are too so he will have the same natural disadvantage). I don't think he could be...

    Player Watch Welcome to Hawthorn, Denver Grainger-Barras - re-signed to 2024!

    KP Forward? No. Same issues (magnified) he has a defender, just not tall/big/strong enough. 3rd Tall (at either end) - I think this is where he ends up - similar to a Frost (or early Stratton) he can step up on some KPP's but his physical dimensions will give limitations to his suitable...

    Aren't rookie list wages outside the cap? Sign him up to a 5yr, 600k contract. Pay him 2 million in 2023, and 250k for rest of contract

    Player Watch Welcome to Hawthorn, Denver Grainger-Barras - re-signed to 2024!

    This isn't to pot DGB (I've done enough of that elsewhere) - but elite athleticism? He's not slow, but hasn't shown a regular turn of speed on field. He hasn't shown much of a leap - certainly not elite to overcome his lack of height on 200+ monsters. He's outbodied by virtually all AFL players...

    Autopsy Round 22, 2022: Richmond roast Hawks

    If you can stomach it - go back and watch the Blanck v Lynch matchup, especially the 2nd quarter. Blanck was beaten, yes - but not disgraced. In the first, Lynch and Reiwoldt played ring-a-rosy, switching constantly to unsettle Blanck and Jeka and Blanck lost contact in changeover and was...

    Which team out of Adelaide, North and Hawthorn has the better youth?

    Hawthorn wins over (at the time/now): Rd.1 Kangaroos (16th/18th) Rd.2 Power (18th/12th) Rd.5 Cats (5th/1st) Rd.10 Lions (2nd/5th) Rd.17 Crows (15th/15th) Rd.18 Eagles (17th/17th) Rd.19 Kangaroos (18th/18th) Rd.21 Suns (11th/11th) Two good wins (Cats, Lions) otherwise as you'd expect for a...

    Things that please me - Part 4

    I would rip out the weeds in my back lawn - but then there'd be no "lawn" left! Whatever the weed is only grows an inch high too - better than grass that needs mowing every second weekend.

    Welcome 2018 draft pick 52: Welcome to Hawthorn Jacob Koschitzke

    Comparison to O'Brien are more on output than skills/flaws IMO. O'Brien was technically a very good mark, judged the ball in flight well and reached for it at his highest point. He was regularly in the best position first, but unable to hold out his opponent. His biggest issue was absolutely...

    Autopsy Round 21, 2022: Hawks dim the Sims

    Callow does one thing extremely well - when he gets his hands to the ball, it sticks. Short of some surgical solution to Kozi's woes, I wonder if it's just physiological gifts or something we can learn from.

    An intelligent population is harder to control, makes smarter decisions and less easy to exploit. There's no benefit to big business for the general populace to understand their finances.
