Not bitter at all
I’m fully bitter too. How can anyone, anyone, who has been involved with this club, let alone a dual premiership player who played over 200 games for the Roos, let their son roll around for another club? It‘s beyond me. We have to fight tooth and nail just to be able to survive let alone get the total cushy ride those cola clowns get. Nick B is persona non grata in my book. Fk him and his old man. It’s a disgrace.
Horse will be the same. A joke.

Their children owe us nothing tbh. It is on the club to make the place exciting enough that they want to have a legacy here. The last couple of decades has eroded a lot of positive things we achieved onfield. We need to be more than just a bunch of low-expectation plodders decade after decade.

Hear hear

But the club is as much as to blame as any

After 1 season and 4 or 5 games I can see why you'd say that.
Comes from a North family, clearly capable of having a massive impact when the team as a whole is shit, at a glance appears to have put serious offseason work into his body (dedication and discipline!). I can see it. But then again, I'm pretty generous when it comes to being open to seeing possible development of our players.

I like what I've seen of him too. Don't get me wrong.

He's got a lot going for him and has had leadership potential imo since he played for the Allies.

But give the kid a break.

I don't have any expectations of leadership or anything like that, can just see some good ingredients. Only thing I expect of him next year is the Norm Smith.

Please elaborate, interested to hear?
Continuous engagement.
Going above and beyond to ensure Blakey would come.
Keeping tabs with John.
All the things we should have done when Blakey was certain to be a top 10 pick.
We just let him become Sydneyfied without much resistance.

It also didn’t help that the AFL changed the F/S criteria to assist clubs like Sydney. Wait till Hodge’s 3 boys are eligible for both Hawthorn and Brisbane. Kennett will flip out!

Will depend if they're any good.

If they're not, watch Hawthorn throw a hissy fit smokescreen to conceal some other chess move they're making.

If they are, no contest Hawthorn will Jedi mind trick Brisbane into handing them over. Somehow Brisbane's 2nd round pick will also end up in Hawthorn's lap even though no trade was performed.

Hopefully by that time Clarkson and Wright are gone and Hawthorn have dipped to pre Clarko ineptitude.

We can only hope.

Hopefully Clarkson has maxed out Carlton's on and off books cash by then before crashing on the rocky shores of high expectations a la previous multi-premiership coaches baited over there.

Meanwhile favourite son Sam Mitchell rolls into the big seat with a sack full of credentials except for one key ingredient - an ability to coach.

We've had Luke, Bailey, Jy and LDU all feted as future captains in here.

They are obviously all different characters. Possibly they could all do the job too. But I'd rather they were all future premiership players at this stage.

Zurhaar is the only choice, give it to him now and watch the rest run thru brick walls for him.
