Game Chat – Hawthorn v Western Bulldogs

Written by Father Dougal on September 13 2020

Where and when: Sunday  13th September 3:35pm at  the Adelaide Oval

What it means for the Hawks: Nothing., other than their draft position

What it means for the Bulldogs: Their season. Must win to get into the 8. That simple.

Supercoach Watch:

Hawks: Mitchell of course. Wingard. Bleeping Chad Wingard

Bulldogs: Macrea, Bont, English, and Daniel

Father Dougal’s Watch: Dunley! Many people in need of a midfielder will have brought him in, And why not? He is a mighty fallen premium.!

Father Dougal’s Tip:  The Dogs by 30. If they can’t pummel the Hawks, they don’t deserve to be in the 8, and I think they do and can.

  1. Being a hawks fan also,after today’s Docherty fiasco,and the whole SC and afl season as a whole I couldn’t give a flying f@#k.The sooner it’s over the better.Good luck to all who make it through to next week and once again thanks to this great site,even though I took the wrong advice in benching Day instead of Doch.


    1. yes, it appears Acres was the go this week … Wingard back back good scores … and his game role must have changed yet again … or he’s just reverted to his usual rubbish self.

      Annoyed at myself not seeing or picking up on Acres for the tech side though … well done James in getting him … will give you the win not to mention 100’s looking at me from the bench with Rivers and Sholl … Rivers on the mid bench and on Chillo’s recommendation I put the E on young Brayshaw!! (my bad though!!)

      are we sure its not best 18 still??? would be good!


      1. Wait you’re not wining the tech playoff? I’d have sworn you would cruise through!

        The nuns are making a desperate push, aided by Doch being unique to my opponent. Way up in the air.


        1. nah FD … James will beat me. He has better players and made a great trade in of Acres … I wasn’t watching and had already pre-determined to bring wingard back in to match him … not having even noticed Acres to be honest!!

          Went to lunch today and if I’d thought about it, I could have risked it with leaving Doc out and playing Sholl as a POD … but didn’t enter my mind!

          Lunch was nice though!! Good luck in the granny!


  2. Started the round with 180 from telly…been downhill from there, now Wingard to single handedly lose me my $100 per head PF !!
    Thats unless Lloyd and Parker score 300 between them.


    1. Would have to think he might be the most overpaid player vs output in the league.
      The only other that readily becomes to mind is McGovern of Carlton.
      I suppose you could claim Buddy Franklin is because he hasnt even played but I dont count him because of injury

  5. Bontempelli was outstanding again and probably sunk any aspirations I had of winning a way into a GF.
    I had Mitchell and everyone else had the Bont…and Rivers, Watson and Schoenberg. I have Schoenberg on the bench(e) but only mids left were Neale,Lyons and Mitchell…who would have thought that Mitchell couldn’t top 97?
    Dont even mention Doc!!


    1. yep – Bont is one who got away from me this year – wasn’t looking good early on, but getting more on ball has changed it significantly for him … and I never had the chance to get him in …
