    Doug had 38 and some of the most skillful pieces of play that you would see. One bullet pass to Jim Edmond in particularly is outrageous.
    That pass to Edmond was perfect.

    Re: Interview With Doug Hawkins

    Just for context, that 1985 match in which Dougie starred was the first time I'd seen our club win a final. We had played just two (losing) finals since 1961. (We'd been completely humiliated and exposed by the Hawks by 93 points the week prior).

    I think people can forget the misery of those years, as we've been pretty regular finalists since the early 90s.

    Same here. I went to 1974, 1976 finals and then the next one was not until that miserable day against the Hawks in 1985.

    That first semi in 1985 was a fabulous day and as you say our first win in a final since 1961 - a long time.

    Precision kick from Doug. That was a great inside 50 entry.

    The week before was our first MCG final in 24 years. R1 was the first time we'd beaten Carlton at Prince's Park since 1964.

    On the non-natural if you don't mind. It was a great win to be at we murdered North, that third quarter was amazing. Beasley with a big haul as well.

    Looking back at it I can't believe how many torps were kicked back then in general play.

    Beaser was a great player for us. Loved watching him kick those "bags".
