I don't think anyone seriously believes we were ever tanking. There's been no real indications of that coming through either in the way players are playing or the coaching/selection moves made.Can i just say can we cease the tanking talk. Hawthorn r never taking the field with the intention to lose not with clarkson at the helm. I dont care what anyone says but i strongly believe winning is more important. Draft picks no where near as important.
We have built a culture around never giving up and playing hard every week. Most weeks we do this. The players were gutted losing last week. I am so happy they got reward for their efforts this week
Ppl are so fricken enamoured with the draft. Geezus Gws should be on a 5 pete by now and they havent made a grand final.
I like you frustrated by our ball movement especially going forward but you can never fault our endevour to be 3 goals down having kicked 4 goals for the game and still believe we could win.
Guts and determination something other sides dont have and we sure has hell dont want to lose that intangible. Its the difference between a premiership and not
There's been some experimentation done with strategy and selection but that isn't at all unusual given where we are at as a team. Teams that are trying to lose don't perform like we have in the past 2 games. We're just inconsistent, not tanking.
