Game Chat – Hawthorn v Melbourne

Written by Father Dougal on April 18 2021

Where and when: 3:20pm  at the MCG

What it means for the Hawks: A win  means 2-3  and maybe not contending for the wooden spoon. Well, that belongs to the Roos it seems so they would be contending for the…..worse than wooden spoon, where they don’t get first pick and still had a terrible year. Somehow scraping into finals would be possible, if optimistic, with a win.  Also, handing the Demon’s their first loss? Very good sign for the future. 

What it means for the Demons:  It means 5-0 and second place on the ladder, barring a serious stomping of the Hawks which is possible not not likely.  Being in second by points and not percentage would be nice. A loss means 4-1, hardly a disaster, but means somewhere in the top 2 not the top 2. 

Supercoach Watch: 

Hawks: Impey, Jiath, Titich. (Autocorrect tried to make that “Twitch”)  Koschitzke, the non-donut of many.  Phillips still. 

Demons: Gawn for sure, captain of many. Oliver and Petracca

Father Dougal’s Watch:  Jordan. Will he make cash or will he spud up.  Last round I picked May from the demons and look how that turned out. No Jinx. 

Father Dougal’s Tip:  Demons by 20

  2. My boys playing pretty well and for once are clinical going forward. Worpel is doing a bit of a number on petracca after he got away to a quick start so something to keep an eye on. As expected Gawn is slaughtering us! Hood for all scers with the c on him


    1. Nearly tipped the Hawks lol, had a feeling they’d put up a fight.

      Do you like Worpel as a tagger btw, Tom? Kinda feels like a waste when they could be developing him into actual midfielder; seems odd to relegate that talent to tagging, idk.


      1. Look im a bit on the fence with worpel. He struggled a bit last year. Plays a similar game to tich so we are sometimes one dimensional with these 2 and omeara. I think hell learn heaps from following the best in the game. For now if he can earn some possessions and close down the oppositions midfielders ill be happy.

  4. I can’t fault our effort we just lack a bit of class and polish. COuld use a key forward instead of Nash, Obrien or kozzie. Other than that weve given it a crack and while im disappointed again this week im not upset with how we have played. I think we’ll pinch some wins aginst easier clubs, our fixture to start the season has been tough.


  5. Serves me right
    Listen to a good game all arvo
    Turn the footy on the tv n Melb kicks 5 str8 in 7 mins
    Should never watch the footy live or on tv
    Best way to ruin a game


  6. Very disappointing finish to the day… Wouldn’t want to be anywhere near clarko for his upcoming spray


  7. Full Time scores and the Demons are flying at 5-0 for the season for the first time since Jack Viney was 17 days old according to the Foxtel commentators
    Melb big winnners 15.14.104 to the Hawks 8.6.54 and Gawn went HUGE!
