She's like many Hawthorn people I know. Doesn't really care what happens, but if they win is happy to say "Go Hawkers".

90% of their membership. You watch them disappear if Whorethorn lose games regularly this year

I may be the only few that don't really have an issue with hawthorn and there success. Maybe because I admire Clarko and how he managed to knock the cats off in 2008 when no one game them a chance or maybe because he actually had the guts to come out and say what he thought of Hird and the essendon saga. 

Also he wasn't a superstar player like hird, buckley, voss or even tim watson. So he has proved you don't need to be a superstar to be a successful coach. 

Plus my friends who are hawks fans wernt arrogant when they wee successful unlike my bomber ones who after 2000 already said they would win the next 3. 

And I wish they knocked off the bummer last week. 

So now it's a different side and they have to get used to there team losing games. But I think 37,420 is a low crowd. 

Also it seems putting a different jumper on Vickory hasnt changed or helped him much.

I'm still baffled as to how an AFL standard umpire could make a decision like that.  I know we all make mistakes, but that's something I'd expect to see at Under 18 level in the local leagues.  Just a mindbogglingly bad decision.

Don't exaggerate. You wouldn't see it in any league!

37,420 (if that was the crowd) is a terrific crowd for a game against Adelaide at the G. We'd be delighted by that.

Hawthorn have never had particularly massive attendances for H&A games. Their actual membership numbers are high, but not many attend.

You actually know Whorethorn supporters who are not arrogant, Christ i used to work with 3 of them who would organize Grand Final holidays 2-3 years in advance!

I am not joking either. Whorethorn in the '80's...Wow.

Then they beat us in that bloody merger game in '96

No problem with Clarko at all

They did make a wrong call this year though and it is beautiful

Hodge is cooked. Finished.

Jordan Lewis hopefully has 2-3 years left at least, maybe more if managed.

I think it's team rules, they all are. Something not right with this mob. 

It has a bit of the Neeld days about it for me. Wouldn't be surprised if there's a bit of a revolt there. I'd target Saad and Kolodjashnij and see if we can woo them. I would imagine it wouldn't take much to want to get out of there.

For premiership favourite the AFL should be ashamed at the crowd! 

Will no doubt inflate the few thousand.

Remind me - has Eade been sacked once already?

GCS expectations far lower, at least in their fans' eyes, than Collingwood so Bucks may be under greater pressure. If his godfather wasn't the President he would be gone already (or maybe never got the gig).

    GAMEDAY: Rd 11 vs St. Kilda

    It's Game Day and after 2 losses on the trot the Dees must win against the Saints today at the MCG to keep in touch with the Top 4. A loss today will see them drop out of the Top 8 for the first time since 2020.

    HEAVEN OR HELL by The Oracle

    Clashes between Melbourne and St Kilda are often described as battles between the forces of heaven and hell. However, based on recent performances, it’s hard to get excited about the forthcoming match between these two sides. It would be fair to say that, at the moment, both of these teams are in the doldrums. The Demons have become the competition’s slow starters while the Saints are not only slow to begin, they’re not doing much of a job finishing off their games either. About the only th

    THE BLOW by Whispering Jack

    Narrm’s finals prospects took a crushing blow after the team’s insipid performance at Optus Stadium against a confident Waaljit Marawar in the first of its Doug Nicholls Round outings for 2024.  I use the description “crushing blow” advisedly because, although the season is not yet at it’s halfway mark, the Demons have now failed abysmally in two of their games against teams currently occupying bottom eight places on the ladder.  The manner in which these losing games were played out w

    HALF FULL by KC from Casey

    It was a case of the Casey Demons going into a game with a glass half full in their match up against the Brisbane Lions at Casey Fields on Saturday. As the list of injured and unavailable AFL and VFL listed players continues to grow and with Melbourne taking all three emergencies to Perth for the weekend on a “just in case” basis, its little brother was always destined to struggle. Casey was left with only eight AFL listed players from who to select their team but only two - an out-of-form

    PREGAME: Rd 11 vs St. Kilda

    POSTGAME: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    Many warned that this was a danger game and the Demons were totally outclassed all game by a young Eagles team at Optus Stadium in Perth as they were defeated by 35 points.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    It's Game Day and the Demons have returned to the site of their drought breaking Premiership to take on the West Coast Eagles in what could very well be a danger game for Narrm at Optus Stadium. A win and a percentage boost will keep the Dees in top four contention whilst a loss will cast doubt on the Dees flag credentials and bring them back to the pack fighting for a spot in the 8 as we fast approach the halfway point of the season.
