You reap what you sow Robert.
Always concerned with point scoring over discussions years prior by reminding people of wrong viewpoints, which you yourself have plenty as well.
Always concerned with shitting over the club you claim to love.
Never happy when said behaviour is questioned.
You were good value until 2014 finals, got bundled out meekly and you've been off your rocker ever since.
Nothing at all.
People of that persuasion also try to tell all and sundry some of our players are old and cooked.
Selwood being one, he isn't judged as such based off his whole career output now is he. It's based of recent season(s).
But Hawkins performances in finals cannot be similarly based off recent season(s).
Unlike your great self, I actually don't rate my club as highly as most.
I think we have been living off past glory days. A few of our players drink their own bath water.
This club is continually lauded by many in the media for maintaining a yearly top eight finish. There's very little attention paid to what we do in finals.
Sydney and Geelong get the biggest leg up in the game. Our home ground advantage will forever ensure we are in the hunt for finals.
Even when we had a disastrous team in the late 90s, Clark, Corrigan, Bamford, Houlihan, Rahilly, Mensch, Steinfort, Arnott, Lowther, Lynch . . . we never hit rock bottom because of our home ground advantage.
Fast forward to the new age of free agency and no one does it better than Stephen Wells at Geelong.
Yearly top ups and players who are seasoned and know how to win.
It's a recipe for home & away success.
