Hi fellow hawks. This is the first time I've tried to post anything so please bear with me. I just thought I'd introduce myself as I joined BigFooty years ago but then promptly forgot about it. I am a lifelong Hawker, grew up in Hawrhorn, just off Burwood road and have seen all the good times and bad. I am now a happily retired Wharfie living in Qld where we get very little footy news but I still try to catch up on every bit of Hawks info I can. I"ve seen all our Premiership wins ( incl 61 & 71 live ), but some only on T.V. and am hungry for the next.
Anyway this was just a trial run so if I've done anything wrong or you have any suggestions please let me know.

Re: intoduction

Long time lurker in Queeensland too who rarely posts (about 4-5 times a year) yet loves his Hawks just as much and more as the next man. Always express your opinion, it maybe wrong it maybe right, but it's always your opinion and that's worth gold! Welcome aboard mate :thumbsu:

Re: introduction

Hey,

Our dream Big Footy member.

Grew up in Hawthorn, watched all of the Premierships,saw the light and moved to Queensland and a retired wharfie to boot.

We need much more than a trial run from you. Welcome aboard.

Hey BIG X do you think he could be the same age group as me?

Welcome aboard, son of Bob.

Thanks for the post.

We thought it might be an opportunity to have a 'Welcome to the Hawk board' for others to introduce themselves as well.

So this be it now.

Howdy, Bob (wasn't that a line from the Blues Brothers).

Welcome to the neck of the woods where the hawk flies, and I scurry around the forest floor looking for edible berries.

Enjoy. And don't hesitate to contact a mod or anyone else that looks vaguely respectable around here.

First of all I would like to thank you all for the warm welcome. There must be a lot of others like me out there who haven't yet taken the time to make themselves known on this board. My message to them is step up and get involved it doesn't hurt a bit. If an old stager like me can do it there is no excuse for the younger generation of Hawkers who are much more computor savvy than I am. C'mon guys make yourselves known!!!!! I'm sure the Mods would appreciate it.

Ahhhhh..... the smell of unbridled BF youth and innocence! No doubt we'll soon beat that out of you newbies! ;):thumbsu:

Welcome aboard the.... Board, HFC4EVA. Please enjoy your stay. Don't worry, you technically cannot break the mothership. HenryJr has already tried and successfully failed at that. :p

Hi!

Joined recently. Life long Hawks fan. Completely die hard.

I live in Moscow, Russia. Started up an AFL comp here a few months back.

Just recently took a team of Russians to Belfast for the Euro Cup AFL 9s. We did alright for our first time coming 10th out of 18. Winter is setting in here though, so looking forward to next season!

That's me.
