Hi All

I have been a mighty Hawks supporter since the 80’s, converted from the Swans after a very mediocre run in mini league. Despite my challenges playing at mini league level we still managed a three peat with the Mini Swans, Cygnets and Swans.

I have been a member for over 10 years; I have two kids who are also indoctrinated into the Hawthorn family (both members) at the disgust of my wife and in-laws who are all Essendon. I was fortunate to attend the 2015 Grand Final with my brother who is a West Coast supporter:D
.

I have been reading the Hawks pages on Bigfooty for a while and have finally decided to take the plunge and become a member.

Not sure how active I will be on the forums, but it will be good to throw my two cents into the discussions from time to time.

I intro'd myself on the main board, but may as well say hello here too.

I'm an American who played for the Philadelphia Hawks Australian Football Club and currently work for the USAFL. I wasn't really attached to an AFL club for the first decade or so I followed the sport, but I joined the Hawks in '08 and the team, which is sponsored by Hawthorn, was following them closely so I decided to do the same. I'm looking forward to finally seeing them in person when I go to cover the International Cup in August.

Hi all I'm back on Bigfooty, I used to be Rioli the king, but have forgot my password and wanted to make it Cyril the king.Anyway I'm back and my main focus on this website is young players/drafts and trading.
I'm also super keen to learn more about our next generation academy players. I've only seen Tony Olango play and would love feedback on Tyrone Hayes, Jiath (who is dominating the APS) and next years Irving Mosquito

Hi all,

Sudi from Melbourne, mad Hawks supporter! Looking forward to some good discussions on our future, the kids coming through, and anything Hawthorn related in general. I have recently taken up some writing and editing work with Realsport, and look forward to sharing my Hawthorn pieces with you. I have plans of getting some podcasts lined up with past and present players as well, and am pretty pumped about it! Go Hawks!!

"Big" reader of Hawthorn "Bigfooty". I always enjoy the news and discussion. Followed only two teams in my life - Hawthorn Hawks, and Iowa Hawkeyes (US college football). Living in Sydney now, which means my Hawks polo shirt gets me grief from time to time... Its true, they really hate us up here. Happy to learn news and thoughts from other others, but will post if I feel the need to be heard.:) Lets hope we continue to see younger players improving during rest of 2017.

Hey there everyone, been a hawks fan for almost 30 years, and been reading these posts for about 5 years now. Thought it was time i said hello. Luv the discussion on this board most of the time and it keeps me well informed and entertained. Thanks Guys.

Got 2 young kids atm and dont get alot of time to go to the footy with them and having to do shift work, but i never miss a game on foxtel. I was lucky enough to make it to the 2014 GF. Wow my favourite one, we destroyed them and i could just enjoy the ride, and it was against buddy, i enjoyed that one.

Really happy with the youth we are playing and the way our team is gelling. Keep up the posts boys and girls and i will keep reading them. Cheers

Hello fellow Hawk fans, today I'd like to introduce myself as an AFL fan in the area surrounding New York City. I reside in Westchester County, the home of, for lack of a better answer, NBA star Donovan Mitchell, and home county of Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg. I have been a fan of Aussie Rules since last December, and I sometimes get up early to watch the Game of the Week on FS2. A few days ago, I became a Hawthorn fan when I spun a wheel of all of the teams and landed on the Hawks. They then preceded to dissapoint me instantly by getting blown the hell out by Melbourne. I also don't know much about the players on any team or about culture of the sport. I can watch a game and understand it because I know the basic rules, but not much else. I can only watch one game a week, and it's generally on at 2 AM shuffled between 5,000 UFC reruns on FS2. Thank for welcoming me to the Hawks fan club!

Hello guys,

I’ve been lurking these boards for awhile. Decided to finally make a account. I guess I may as well tell you my main interest; football, skateboarding, geography, crappy movies and preaching the vegan life (slightly a joke). Pretty chill guy, who doesn’t take life to serious after going through some tough shit.

Always looking to skate with new people. So if you skate in Melbourne, hit me up.

I access this site through Tapatalk... and it has gone to shit.... wtf?

The last update has gone bonkers.
I have a thousand irrelevant sticky threads, and no axeman/training thread?!?!

I also can’t create any threads.

Suggestions?

What do you normally skate?
If you're into big ****** (like, Prahran, Vertmont big) hit us up.
I'm a newbie so I always like skating with guys who have been around a while.
