    Hardly a word has been spoken about the hawks but its like losing to us means u are the shittest team on earth. Nah i get what they mean, im sure all us expected a lot more from the Ds, i certainly had them pushing top 6, very disappointing. We just keep flying under the radar, its a good thing :)

    It was like a 20m start at the Stawell gift. Would have been 8 players in front of him.

    Lewis should have grabbed his jumper at the 50m line. Free kick was the only way to stop him.

    Shame we are too old and too slow.

    4th quarter 9.04 on the telecast clock. Connor Glass with the Gaelic toe poke to Breust to start a score chain from nothing.

    Enjoy watching Glass play. Reckon he has a few tricks we have yet to see. Excellent football brain.

    Crikey,a year to the month after landing in Oz to take our game on he was playing at AFL level.
    Still 20 and less than 2 years Aussie Rules experience.

    Comes from the same Ulster area as my families' sept. Derry (and Down).

    By going on about how bad Melbourne were, didn't even talk about how the hawks changed things around at quarter time, no mention of the multi head monster that our mids are becoming, focus on one the others will get you. Not much if any credit was given to the hawks and the focus was all about the dees. Lacked balance regardless of how bad Melbourne stunk it up.

    Expected.

    This is a great post.

    Selling the farm indeed. Couldn't believe all the nonsense we got about paying too many points for him, paying over the odds, not getting value and all that crap.
    And then the following stuff about the fact that he'd never regain his pace, especially last year with his further setback.

    His sprint in that classic footage was devastating - outsprinting 4 Demons by 4 meters or so.
    Not to mention his pure class in controlling the ball, keeping his balance and finishing with the goal.

    Yeah, wish we hadn't give up that second draft pick as well........

    The other bonus about the Melbourne game is that all the TOB knockers have gone into hibernation for a week.

    O’Brien proving he’s a better forward option than Schoenmakers.

    After 1 game?
    In 6 years?
    Against Melbourne?

    Oh that’s right, he had a break out game against Melbourne last year too

    Shoenmakers ain’t no star, but he is way more consistent

    Yeh, thinking the exact same as I watch him playing....still working within parameters he's sure of are 'coach approved', but I've got a feeling he could take some chances on picking it up off the deck and sprinting in a change of direction that will take our breath away when the confidence is there.
    He just doesn't look surprised or nervous to see it bouncing around on the grass, keeps tracking it and times it well to attack, doesn't get done in by the weird shaped ball's bounces.
    He's going to explode one of these games and were all going to go 'whoa', what have we got on our hands with this terrific young man!!!!

    With one decent, not exactly 'cracker' of a game?

    Apologies to Mr Tyler, responded before I'd read his post just down from mine.....

    He's actually been quite bullish on us this year. Is 100% on the Impey bandwagon as well, has been pumping the tires of his recruitment since the JLT

    Jimmy Bartel's match-day comments were spot on - Hawks played much, much smarter wet-weather football, both with and without the ball.

    That comes down to having both the footballers with the match-sense to work that out for themselves, and a coach to communicate it if they can't.

    Luckily, we have both

    He would have offered nothing in those conditions either.

    I thought he was poor in the first half and good in the second

    Not sure if anyone has stated (or recognised) how well Impey played on the weekend. Career high disposals (23), contested possessions (13) and clearances (6). Also had 506 metres gained.

    Stats increase is probably due to the injuries to Puopolo and Rioli, but will interesting none the less if he continues to improve.
