    If English lives up to the pre-season hype, giddy the **** up!
    Our 1954 premiership players are our heroes, and it has to be said that Charlie was their hero.

    Correct, and that idiot at the AFL (Hocking), tried to stop it last season, but the coaches complained

    He also had Jose Romero running laps of the ground before a game to warm up. Most coaches thought he was crazy "you'll wear him out. He will be tired out before the end of the game.

    He's well ahead of where you expect a ruckman's development to be.
    I was very heartened by the improvement in his marking game from the start to the end of the season last year.

    I think we'll still lose hit-outs most weeks but what he offers around the ground will more than make up for it.

    Crazy to think we got Tim in a premiership year. As a sample of recent premiership clubs and their first rounders:

    2014: Hawks traded First Rounder for Jono O'Rourke
    2015: Hawks drafted Kieran Lovell with First Rounder
    2016: Dogs drafted Tim English with First Rounder
    2017: Richmond drafted Jack Higgins with First Rounder
    Ret.
