    Oh Hawthorn, promise us you will never change.

    Maybe Don can trigger a second night of the long knives in 2 weeks?

    You're kidding aren't you? We're two years out from winning three in a row and you're talking like we haven't seen a GF in 37 years.

    I hope so, I quite enjoy regular premierships, record breaking membership and yearly profit in the millions.

    These Tiges supporters are up and about. We all knew they'd be painful. It's like when your kid is being a bit of an arsehole at their own birthday party. You let it go because it's a special occasion but bloody hell there are limits

    You have a week to gloat then it's a year of dealing with multiple threads about how you aren't worthy premiers.

    Classic analogy. Needs to be posted in almost every thread on the main board at the moment.

    This is why you hire the most qualified candidate and don't try to force equality when it's not deserved.

    Can we make Vickery CEO and pay him outside the salary cap? The push-up king can take over security

    You club has 1 decent year after 35 years of mismanagement and you think you can laugh at Hawthorn? Get real. This thread is priceless, we even have Essendon people warning of the dangers of one person having too much say in a club.

    Sorry trollers, Hawks will be just fine. Hawthorn appointed a person who wasn't up to the job, they got the bullet. Happens all the time, but apparently it's a sign Hawthorn are falling apart.

    I'll get the popcorn and folding chair out in 2018 as I watch Richmond have the same season as the Bulldogs did in 2017.

    Clarko wasn't the most qualified candidate ;)

    Hawks have a mountain of work to do to replace the off field talent they have lost over the last few years;

    Fox (CEO) to MCC
    Newbold (Pres) to AFL Commission
    Evans (Football Operations Manager) to Brisbane CEO via the AFL
    Beverage (Ass. Coach) to Dogs premiership coach
    Hardwick (Ass. Coach) to Tigers premiership coach
    Cameron (Ass. Coach) to GWS coach
    Bolton (Ass. Coach) to Carlton coach
    Fagan (head of Coaching) to Brisbane coach

    It will take a while to get the mix right again but I hope they continue to look outside the square.

    A club with a Tall forward battling cancer and a Ruckman recovering from an ACL.

    You call me defensive, maybe look at your own posting first

    Huh? You didn’t need to. You implied that a club would be dumb to recruit someone who could fill a role, made empty by injury and illness....all because another poster made a joke about how tedious Richmond supporters have become.

    You were dumb because he is not a ruckman and never has wanted to be one. As a forward hes a goal square dude with no second efforts. He was 100% the wrong man for the coverage you rightly were looking for.

    He was never gunna be hale 2.0 like hawks fans claimed.
