As a Crows supporter I'm sorry to see him go. Not the most talented player and capable of the odd clanger, but if you ever need someone to stand in the hole Hartigan's your man. He copped a lot of unfair criticism from some quarters for those clangers but was a valuable player for us IMHO. Good luck to him and to you Hawks.Welcome to the Hawkers. Harto!
Plus Greaves and HardwickHaving Hartigan and Frost in the backline concerns me a lot with disposal out of the backline, especially with Sicily gone.
Thankfully we've got Scrimshaw and Day for delivery out of the back half
Hello my old friend, here we go again this is like deja vu from back in the day we picked up Ricky Henderson and look at how that turned out.Do you honestly think he'd pick Hawthorn over Adelaide if Adelaide offered him more?
Do you honestly think he'd pick Hawthorn over any other Melbourne club barr North had they offered the same?
We're not a destination club at the moment. Especially not for a 29yo fringe player of a wooden spooner looking for some late-career success.
We're not going to offer a fringe player from a wooder spooner a considerable amount of salary either. That's just dumb list management when we have more pressing needs like a goal kicking KPF and a competent ruck under 28.
Now imagine the grass was a playing list. The lawn mower was an average-at-best full back from the team that finished the bottom of the ladder and the paddock was the most successful football club of the last 50 (whatever it is) years...hmmmImagine having a big yard that needs mowing and all you have is a manual push mower and scissors. Your neighbour says to you look I got a pretty serviceable mower you can have for nothing. If you don’t want it though I’ll keep it and be happy to have. Every day of the week you taking the mower and using it. The amount of people in here that would say ummm that’s not a ride on why would I take it is actually amazing to me
