So that means you were in KT’s corner when he said we had the team to win the flag.
Talent hasn't been the issue for a number of years now.

If Hinkley does ever get us there (with the right mix in the box around him) my reaction would be: about ******* time old mate! rather than cupping his balls.

Say what you like about Hawthorn and how they had "luck" or whatever but I have no doubt in my mind Clarkson would've won a flag with what Hinkley's had to work with by now.
More then just one, and not just Clarkson that would have.

He's has more then enough at his disposal, but completely failed to do anything with it.

We wouldnt have drafted and traded in half the players we have, with Clarkson at the helm.

Conversely, Hinkley would probably be a premiership winning coach if he got the AFL-designated 'luck' that Clarkson has had.

Yeah agree with this. We chronically struggled with Sydney at that point. The question is would Sydney have not shown up against us in the same way they didnt show up against Hawthorn?
They showed up, but Hawthorn overwhelmed them with a 2007 style first half.

Hawks physically smashed Sydney in the first half and the game was over at half time. We wouldn't have gone about it that way. Sydney showed up but the Hawks were brutal on them. We didn't play a physical brand of footy in 2014. We just ran hard.

Hawks took out Hannebery in the first few minutes. He was their best midfielder at that time. It was all down hill from there.

Logs into Big Footy for the first time in a long time 'Cupping his balls'...... Good to see nothings changed!
