    The way things are going, by April next year, everyone will be expecting Hawkins to win the Brownlow, the Norm Smith and solve the Middle East Crisis in his first season...

    Quite possible this kid will carry more expectation than the Ablett brothers. That's a lot of pressure.

    Yeah, that's a worry. Really hope he has the shoulders to carry the exceptional expectations (from all accounts, he's got the level head though).

    Don't tend to read too much into Dickson's comments; far too enamored with his own crop to carry any real value of opinion for mine.

    Aside from the Geelong crowd cheering a little louder for Nathan's first few AFL goals is the pressure really all it is cracked up to be?

    I've been to Geelong about half a dozen times in my life so I'm withdrawn from the so called fishbowl but aside from the odd person on here and cats claw calling for his inclusion every single week, even after getting towelled up by Nick Stone in the magoos, I think the vast majority of fans are willing to let him now develop in the VFL without a heap of fanfare.

    Same difference with Ottens - most are happy with his contribution and don't expect 5 goals and 20 hit outs a game.

    I'm sure after an intial euphoria Tommy H will be no different. It will be easier settling into Geelong than a complete rabble with the no #1 pick stigma over his head. At least F/S the expectation is generally limited to our own set of fans.

    No #1 picks get **** cained by the general football community if they don't have a Judd like output immediately.
