Was def a dodgy looking handball, but what stands out the most in that passage is 3-4 of our blokes go to Papley, while leaving 2-3 swans on the outside. Pretty dumb footy from us and encapsulated our arvo pretty much.

I can almost pinpoint the last time we weren't sucked into the contest. It was 2007, down in Launceston, Laids was coaching, and I had the great good fortune of being invited into the rooms pregame to hear Laids' final address to the players. At that time, Hawthorn was emerging as a contender, and a lot of it came down to Sam Mitchell's ability to draw a crowd around the ball and win the clearance and dish off to seagulls like Jordan Lewis who would be hovering out the back. Laids instructed Simmo and Brady Rawlings to turn their back on the contest and wait for Mitchell to feed the ball out, then nail the seagull and force a turnover. The plan worked beautifully and we knocked them over by 6 goals that day.

So yeah, 13 years of being sucked into the contest.

Yes he did have a big day out. I just checked the stats and discovered that Sam Mitchell didn't actually play so my memory of that was a little bit off. Lewis and Hodge got a lot of the ball but they were under pressure every time. I remember Hawthorn was forced out wide, we clogged the corridor and invited them to hug the boundary. They kicked out on the full a lot that day.
