What?

So what? You realise that finishing top four means, if results go as they should, you play 2 teams at least who also finished top four yeah?

No you’re right you were a finals powerhouse at that stage and any comparison is irrelevant.
Powerhouse? We were beyond mediocre some of those seasons. It made 2008 all the more sweeter.

And? So the ladder lied and you shouldn’t have been playing finals?

If you’re going to throw it learn to take it.

Where we at then?

Development year.
Need to hit the draft hard for the next 2-3 drafts with the aim of (paraphrasing here) at least 6-9 top 30 picks in that time frame.

Already added 3 last year so focus heavily on the pointy end of the draft in 2023 and 2024 and re-assess from there.

Seriously I’d be embarrassed if I were a hawthorn supporter. Knifed a legend for a smug hack who could only get a kick by being a sniper of the ball who has no idea when it comes to coaching
That’s the worse part. They we’re so desperate to get rid of Clarkson for a rookie coach all because he’s an ex player. The Malthouse/ Buckley handover worked so well also… Bloke gives you 4 flags and it’s thanks but see ya later. Was baffling at the time, and still baffling now. In fact I’d be surprised if he even got a thanks.

Is it a requirement for every boundary rider that is a moron to start and finish their sentences with “boys”?

So, I assume you mean the period 1992-2007 inclusive, which of those seasons were Hawthorn fancied to win a flag?

And compare that to Geelong since it’s last flag in 2011. Why not compare H&A records? Geelong are comfortably ahead. What has it amounted to?

I think today says more about hawthorn that it does Richmond.
A team with not much to play for but an absolute gun flag winning ruckman announcing his retirement, you would think the players would play out of threat skin for him.
I guess you'd know with Geelong not able to win the 2020 GF for Gazzes last game.

Yeah we’ve been thereabouts but we’ve not had anything near the quality of our 07-11 sides.

So I’ll ask again. Did the hawks go missing more often than not when September rolled around and they weren’t winning premierships?

Gee one would almost thing that sides when they aren’t winning premierships, don’t have a great finals record

Does it compare to Geelong curling up its toes in GA Snr’s last game and getting flogged by ten goals when it had everything to play for?

Well yeah they've been the best side last 5 years and probably one of 4 in form top 8 sides. Not like we're playing North here. You can go to bed now.

No they haven’t. Not this year that’s for sure.
Melbourne were by far the best team last year.
