Where do I start?
  • Hawks supporters are bad losers and even worse winners
  • Their president is Eddie Everywhere 2.0
  • The umpires regularly favor them at critical times of matches
  • Using free agency to their advantage to purchase so many players for low draft picks in return
  • Jeff Kennett blocking the AFL from forming a Tasmanian team back in 2008
  • Their coach is the worst loser in Australian sport, worse than Ricky Stuart at the Canberra Raiders
  • Using "Unsocialable Football", niggling tactics and starting random fights as weapons against the rest of the league since the 80s
  • Along with Carlton, refusing to give up their country zone (Mornington Peninsula FL) to someone else as part of the VFL's planned rotation of the zones with the 10 other clubs in the mid 1960s.
  • Overall, just a middle class version of Collingwood

You left out the most important one for any Swans fan

#freekickhawthorn still sticks in my gullet.
2012 Prelim Final where according to the Geesh (Umpires Flukey) the shitstains were afforded “free” passage into the big dance to the tune of 11 reach-arounds by the maggots.o_O

And we got rolled the next week by one of the AFL’s favourites, which would have also happened to you also.

Hawfs really struggling for relevance now having lost four finals in a row. That's 3KZ, good for football.
