Watching him on Saturday night it just looked like he was playing his last game at Hawthorn.
Will be a great get for Gold Coast, exactly the type of experienced player they should be after, not borderline best 22 playersthey went for last year

Burgoyne has been a great player, but its clearly time to hang up the boots

GC wont sign their own death certificate by drafting him

Didn't the Hawks send out a letter to members saying they will be ruthless this off season to make Hawthorn as good and as quick as possible? Hawks members can help here.

This seems the 1st step to that end, Birchall, Poppy, Smith? potentially others.

Don't think we really have a choice on this one

He sent out one saying to expect surprises.

This is hardly making the Hawks better though.

He's not taking anyone's spot as he can literally play anywhere required. This is making us worse and we'll get nothing for him in return.

Those thinking Burgoyne is on his last legs haven't been watching close enough. There's a long list of players running around at the moment closer to the end than he is.
I watched him last week. Still has it. Just one of those players that age has not caught up to him yet.
