    Not to mention the 'Free kick Hawthorn' attitude the umpires have had for the last decade.

    After speaking to Obie for about fourty-five minutes on the telephone we
    Finally arrived at the truth of the matter and said that we had to go down
    And pick up the garbage, and also had to go down and speak to him at the
    Police officer's station. So we got in the red vw microbus with the
    Shovels and rakes and implements of destruction and headed on toward the
    Police officer's station.
    Now friends, there was only one or two things that Obie coulda done at
    The police station, and the first was he could have given us a medal for
    Being so brave and honest on the telephone, which wasn't very likely, and
    We didn't expect it, and the other thing was he could have bawled us out
    And told us never to be seen driving garbage around the vicinity again,
    Which is what we expected, but when we got to the police officer's station
    There was a third possibility that we hadn't even counted upon, and we was
    Both immediately arrested. Handcuffed.
    And I said "Obie, I don't think I can pick up the garbage with these handcuffs on. "
    "He said, "Shut up, kid. Get in the back of the patrol car. "

    I agree with this. Although the evil part of me is glad I got on Jack Macrae for the Brownlow a week ago.

    I feel for Mitchell who was coming off a great season and he would have felt confident the Hawks could have been a contender this year.
    This will test the depth of the Hawks playing list and we will see if Wingard and O'Meara can cover the loss.

    On top of that and Carlton are having some challenges as well with Kruezer having some surgery and new recruit Faslo will miss some footy.

    Faslo wrestling with his mates and breaks an arm- I would be pissed off if this was a doggies player.

    And yet most of our supporters were fine with Cooney surfing an esky lid down a cobbled street at the end of the season even with his dicky knee and even more than okay with an impaired Liberatore playing footy in Vietnam despite his issues.
    In most instances it really depends on the player and considerations like if they have just won flag.

    In terms of standards we tend to expect more from players who haven't proven themselves and vastly less from those who have.
    In other words we aren't necessarily consistent with how we apply the dickhead factor. No pun intended but we tend to let the cool kids skate by.

    I think there is also the difference between the off season and the preseason.

    Sam Naismith almost certain to miss round 1 and Buddy is yet to resume running after a groin operation. If he does get up for round 1 he should be underdone. I'm feeling good about our chances against the Swans but then I felt good going into round 1 last year as well.

    De Goey has rolled his ankle, but no report on how bad it is. He is one with super talent but body is always breaking down.

    That's BS, that pun was definitely intended. It's not bad too
    They've done studies you know, 60% of the time, it works every time!
