I was waiting for an O Allen mark replay. I'm still waiting. That was so bloody clutch and yet commentators didn't even mention it. Has to be mark of the week for mine.
At least the main AFL channel tweeted it with the comment "Courage". So someone noticed at least...

I had to go back and check the stats to confirm he was playing. Didn't notice him at all. Can't even recall seeing his number in Q4. Was he on the bench?
I didn't see Masten in the last qtr either. Maybe Simmo needed someone to tough it out and didn't think he was up to it. That attempted one handed pick up earlier when virtually clear was disgraceful as he should have got his body behind the ball. If he was playing for Swan Districts when Toddy was coaching, he wouldn't play another game. Seriously, I know he provides good run and it looked like his one on ones had improved but today was just rubbish. I am also beginning to think if there is any hint of rain for the game, Duggan could be an out....his game just deteriorates in the wet. Nelson showed what a bit of grunt can do. He and Shep were terrific.

Ok final edit

Ok so 1992 Saturday arvo lunch time slot out at Waverley in Wet, miserable conditions Hawthorn lead West Coast at Qtr time. Eagles fight back and kick 11 goals for the game with Sumich kicking 5. Eagles win the flag.

In 2006 at the MCG Eagles trail at quarter time and at 3 quarter time by 5 points. They fight back and win a close game by 10 points with Lynch kicking 5 goals. They went onto win the flag ( the game was also in the wet!!!! )


Today the Eagles trail Hawthorn at the MCG During the Saturday arvo lunch time slot like the above games. They trail at 3qtr time by 5 points like in 2006, and end up beating the Hawks for the first time there since the above game. They finished with 11 goals ( like in 1992 ) and once again their KPP Player in Darling kicks 5 goals.


Beat Hawthorn in Melbourne for the first time last year although it was at Marvel. Went on to win the flag ( half time goal tally of 6 like today )


Also in 1992, 2006 and 2019 the games they played against the Hawks they played in a grand final the year before! 2018 they won it

Premiers this year?

Fantastic Win Boys.

Despite:

- Not having won against the Hawks at the G in the past 100 years
- Best backman in the comp being out
- Nic Nats 1st, game in over a year
- Poor wet conditions
- Being up against the best coach in modern times
- Having our game plan exposed by Mitchell
- Poor umpiring
- Our B to B Best & Fairest being tagged out of the game.
- The best performed forward in our history not scoring a goal.
- Our main Tagger being injured early.

Be Happy everybody It's another 4 Points

Jk goalless for the first time since 2015.
Never seen a FF infringed more that in this game, ever. At one point he was in a 3 on 1 and got arm chopped, held and pulled down by each of the three Hawks defenders and no call. Getting to a point where the club has to have a chat with the umpiring department, he's been scragged like absolute crazy this year and has had fu** all for it

He was very smart though, just ran interference for the others. Obviously knew he wasn't going to get anything from the Umps, especially after that first quarter. Frawley put his foot and knee into his back about 15 times as well, learn't that from the Stratton School of being a complete campaigner

Ha ha love watching replays. This time is see some Hawk dick head running up to block Nic Nat. Twice he gets in Nics face and twice Nic just pushes him away like a fly.

Thought we wrere tough but played poorly many times. But I enjoyed the game a great contest
Triple m with BT Carey and Billy were saying it has to be in consideration for mark of the year

Higgans genius contribution at half time that the Hawks have a clear advantage in the ruck headed into the second half with NicNat set to run out of puff. WCE 8-0centre clearanced in qu 4.
