Pick 34 in retrospect looks ok. Thought it was massive overs at the time
Too me these are the trades that matter. Finding unsung players who for whatever reason havent fulfilled their potential at their current club (Impey, Hendo, Mitchell and going back further Hale, Guerra, Gibbo) and turning them into guns. These kinds of of trades have a greater say on the success of your club than the big blockbuster trades for "stars".haha, looks ok.
mate looks better than the scully trade and thats saying something
Genuinely a shame we don't have two of him. He's one of the few blokes in our team who have been able to get out on a lead and take marks in forward 50.He's close to our F+B.
Has played in quite a few positions and done well. For most of our team being down o form hes having a great year
My daughter calls him aquamanAnother sensational game and at this rate he might be starting to overtake Hendo as the PCM winner this year.
He’s becoming a huge crowd favourite also which is great to see/hear at games. Close to my favourite Hawk at present - absolutely love the way he goes about it.
Agreed.I thought a late 2nd rounder was par for him at the time, looking like a very shrewd trade by us this one in hindsight.
and yet a certain carlton fan still insists we paid overs for him and lumps that trade in with the Wingard and O'Meara onesAgreed.
I didn't think much of the trade at the time, but he's exceeded most of our new recruits in their first season at the club (except Mitchell).
Look out when we've got Scrimshaw/Birchall on the opposite back flank to spread the load for rebounding.
Sigh.and yet a certain carlton fan still insists we paid overs for him and lumps that trade in with the Wingard and O'Meara ones
but you also have to remember that no one is quality while wearing brown and gold, only before they come of after they leaveSigh.
1. You have to give quality to get quality. (But if you do you've 'sold the farm')
2. Can't expect to improve as a team unless you get lots of high talent from the draft (yet the teams that have gone whole-hog on this all sit in the bottom 6 on the ladder and have done so for the best part of a decade).
3. Hawthorn have exploited Free Agency more than anyone. (We've lost a lot more than we've gained)
4. Free kick hawthorn.
No co captains.Could see him potentially leading the club at some stage if he continues on this development trajectory. Clean, no-nonsense, brave and inspiring. Haven't seen enough of his media work to know about how he'd go as the face of the club.
He would be a perfect co-captain if we ever went that way. Partner up with Jaeger.
Jarman Impey is quickly making me less concerned about Silk retiring soon.Clarko challengers impey to go to another level last year. Told him that he could be an a grade player. Clarko certainly has an eye for talent because he was 100% right about impey. Is an a grade player now.
