     Didn't Hawthorn just add a 4th ruckmen to their list? 

    Yes, Hawthorn added Ned Reeves. And this is meant as no disrespect to him, but he is no where near an option for Hawks this year; based on seeing him many times last year. He is Hawk's Project Bradke. He didn't play that much in the ruck in A grade amateurs, let alone VFL, let alone AFL. But then again, in the ammo's he was up against a guy who pushed Jamar to the reserves.

    From a coaching point of view, I'm disappointed to see we haven't developed any strategies to take advantage of the new kick in rule. We could be gaining so much more territory with the new rules, but we're still anchored to the goal square and kicking short. 

    That’s humour yeah?

    Seriously - my daughter with her iPhone would do a better live stream!

    It's a practise match... you don't normally get any coverage. And other than audio, which I wasn't expecting, it is pretty good.

    On the game, Vanders is looking good

    Am a fan of Bull Smith, however.........

    No less than a second round pick

    2013 = 15games

    2014 = 13

    2015 =4

    2016 = 20

    2017 = 6

    2018 = 5

    So averaging less than 9 games a year for the last four years... that ain't equal second round: and that's before you look at his talent.

    3 year contract offered? If you are Dean Kent, you have to take it with open arms. If you are Melbourne, you would (hopefully) not be offering 3 years based on above!!

  5. Redlegs: pointless?

    Now maths isn't my strong point but say 15000 mcc members contributing on average $70 for membership equals >$1mil

    Then add gate receipts

    Then add many are foundation heroes, etc

    and I could go on...

     It's just that I think we've experienced the odd 'short term' (shall we say) sponsor before (Kaspersky anyone?)

    My name is going to give me a way to some on this one, but I know a fair bit of the background on Kaspersky and the sponsorship. A bit harsh to call it out as a "odd" short term sponsor. There was no major sponsor heading into the AFL season and a MFC member stood up and did something about it. It wasn't looked at as a 10 year opportunity, more how can a member and company support the club in a time of need. Energy Watch on the other hand..........

    But in essence the Hawks have more than twice the income of the Saints and you just wonder where all the money goes.  .........................

    Does anyone know? 

    Premiership celebrations and drink drive education.... Court costs are similar between Hawks and Saints.
