  1. Adelaide at home. crouch in. Hawks not in any form. Am I deluded picking the crows to snatch one win for the season?


    1. Probably right
      Wingard is due
      playing v crap opposition is bread & butter
      Expecting him to have a day out tonight 130-150


      1. Just had a row with the other half.He put 1k on Adelaide @ $3.He follows Hawthorn!He calls it his reverse psychology


  2. Asked this before, but I need to downgrade Brander.
    Is it crazy to go Stratton at 183k? As a d7, has JS and might even make a little cash?
    Or should I just go with Bailey Williams? Cheaper but might not have JS.

  4. I’m not normally one to question Clarko (except when he sold the farm for Wingard), but his team selection decisions were woeful this week.

    Hartley did ok in defence but dropping him and resting Frost has forced McEvoy to be stuck in defence even though he is too slow. If Hartley was playing we could swing McEvoy to the ruck where he was great the last few weeks.


    1. Clarko hasn’t got much to choose from ATM
      average kids & ageing stars
      Haven’t finished around the bottom of the ladder for a long time
      Ergo , no draft pics
      Best to have our turn @ the bottom for a couple of years & get some decent pics
      Otherwise we’ll just be lingering around the 8 every year
      Perfect timing actually
      GWS & suns & d’a are finished taking all the best kids now


      1. We’ve had decent draft picks and given them away. True they were not super high picks but they should have been better used.

        I’m not saying we have stars to choose from but deciding to manage players this round against Adelaide rather than any other week was silly. Also playing ageing players out of position seems pointless. Develop young defenders, don’t push McEvoy to defence.

        Your point re: bottoming out is valid though, imagine getting a Matty Rowell type at Hawrhorn!


  5. Been dreading this game for weeks now.Just knew my Hawks
    would be the ones to give Crows their first,and probably only win.We are shite.


  6. Seems like I should have pulled the trigger got MCrouch & Merrett this week oh well this way I get Neale next round.


  7. So Schoenberg got a good score coming do i just leave him on the bench? or do i need to put a 0 on the field cause i put Dow on the field


  8. Wingard needs to work on his hardness or his tank next year
    Has to be elite @ 1 or the other
    Played like a fwd pocket this year


    1. remember when he was AA at 21 years and he was hailed as best small forward going. Cyril and eddy’s boots need a clean chad!


      1. Probably still is a AA fwd pocket in a team like that
        Unfortunately he doesn’t have the luxury of triple A mids spoon feeding him in the current hawks team


  9. Full Time and the Crows get their first win for the season 12.11.83 to the Hawks 7.6.48

      1. Unlucky not to best the Cats. Have seen the gradual improvement week by week with our pressure and ball movement. Good group of kids with pick 1 to add into it as well as a possible top 10 pick of the Giants first round and if Brad goes then a compo pick for him. Going to be a struggle in the coming years but the future is bright.


  10. Hawthorn’s recruiting has been terrible Too many good ordinary players and no stars.Time for a cleanout NDD
