Aside from the Dees game the Hawks havent done too bad... that $2.48 H2H will drop under $1.90 by bounce.
Hill you suspect will be managed with his injury and Dmac will probably miss. Long should get dropped or moved froward but who knows? Ryder back?
Interesting week at selection.

Unfortunately our confidence is shot and our depth is pathetic. I mean there should be about 6 changes but really only Ryder Byrnes and bytel can play. Out are McKenzie suspended hill injured and long dropped. Butler should be out but there isn’t a replacement. Even Byrnes is going to have to be played out of position.

Can't say I'm confident of even beating Hawthorn with the way we're playing.

Hawthorn are nothing special, they are an average side at best but they at least give 100% effort and are competitive in most games they play, they haven't had any really bad losses like we have where they have been completely uncompetitive.

With us you just don't know what sort of effort you will get from week to week, we gave great effort in our wins against GWS and West Coast but our effort has been pathetic at times in the games we've lost. If we show that lack of effort against Hawthorn they will roll us for sure but if we show the effort we did against GWS and West Coast we should win as we have them covered for talent.

As for changes, hopefully Paddy is back which would give us a huge boost in the ruck and up forward.

There are several players that deserve to be dropped after their performances against Port but we just don't have the depth at the moment to replace them with anyone better. Long was terrible and normally you would drop him but with Webster, Geary and Paton injured there's no one to replace him.

Just in case it’s not clear because I probably sound confident - I am not the least bit confident about this match.

Would say it’s a danger game but another loss just reinforces the season over whereas a win just prolongs us absolutely declaring it.

No I like your idea of winning every game.

I have a real positive about next weeks game. I can’t go. On a golf trip to Yarrawonga. 2 of our most iconic moments have happened this weekend. The wool goal and max crying after the dogs game. This week it will be me crying at Yarrawonga mulwala golf club. The game starts at 4.35. I imagine I will be crying at 4.45.

I care. I always care. Even after we lost our first 3 games in 1985 by 100 points I was there for game 4. I want to win every single game we play but with this club it’s never about winning. It’s about hope. Unfortunately it’s no hope at the moment.
King, Coff, Clark, Battle and Bytel give me hope mate, they'd give me more if we utilised them properly though...
