You too huh. Had to separate my 64 yo Father from thumping a Dawks supporter in the premiership Club in 2017. Good Times.
Seriously I turn into Mr Hyde everytime I attend a North v Hawthorn game. It’s the supporters. And this dates back 30 + years.

Funny thing is, apart from the odd one or two, I don’t necessarily hate their players. I respect their success.

They do get a few young smartarse types due to their surge in numbers over the last couple of decades. I wouldn't even call these types true supporters. They're in to gimmicks. How many multi generation Hawthorn supporters do you know? I could count the ones I have known in my life on one hand. I bared my teeth at a young loud mouth bloke in the 2018 game when we gave them a mighty touch up in the first half and he was losing the plot. Last year at Docklands a mate and I ended up sitting at a table with a few of them in their thirties and getting in a shout for jugs. They were balanced folks with a good grounded understanding of footy.

Perhaps we should ask one of them?

Abasi, are Hawthorn's contemporary membership numbers predominately based on a population of front running "Johnny come lately's"? What percentage would come from Hawthorn supporting families who were around in the 1970's? Five percent?
