I sincerely hope not.

Damien Hardwick was at Hawthorn during the period mentioned in the ABC news investigation - what are the chances of his name being included in the final independent report?
The alleged allegations were after he left.

Yep.We played like crap for most of that game. Didn't deserve it. Lynch kicking the cover off the ball from 15 out, 5 defenders spilling a ball to Joey Joey Jo Jo FFS.

Really sums up our season.

Focus on getting better.
Totally agree. Said that straight after the game. The amount of basic errors we made was off the charts. (Not a great night by Hooch either.)

Won't happen. As per an hour ago via The Age, timelines don't match.

The Age can reveal that the timeline of events in the report was from 2010-16, according to sources familiar with the situation.

Just listened to Dimma's speech at the B&F.

He's hurting REAL bad I reckon. There was a steeliness, almost an anger, in the way he spoke. He knows 2022 was a missed opportunity and it sounded like he needs, not wants, to make amends for it.

Just do the extra...

Take the stairs...

I wanted to run through my front brick wall. I reckon there'll be players desperate to do that as well.

I hope Dusty's on board.

For me it would have been the one that got away if Prestia didn't go down - but he did and our midfield was too thin. As much as it pains me, I reckon we would have copped a whack by Geelong. However, I reckon Dimma truly believes it and it will be great fuel for a tilt at 2023.

2019 was redemption
2023 is payback.

Hardwick hates head office more then me
*not sure he shouldve said that we wouldve beaten Melbourne and then Geelong

Yeah also not sure he’s over the ARC decision either.

Dimma is gutted because he knows the Tiges had the game to take down the Scats.

Yep, we know our midfield is thin and we're doing something about it. 2023 looks like it has great potential.

As for Lynch's goal, I don't get the criticism, it went through for a goal, what more do you want?

Yep. A lot of players responded to that too. It's already brainwashed in their heads. Watch out Pricky.....

A lot coming for him and his reference to the Cats.

Really? But when Scott took a swipe at us in 17,18, 20? I think ( it was ok ). No one came hard for him in the media. Scared.

Think he said we were not a dynasty side like the Hawks. If not what happened the PF night against the Pies in 18, I’m certain we would have beaten WC and won 4 in a row.

People are sucked into ‘this changed’ Scott. I’m not!

In the end he ‘followed our model’ of quick ball movement, genuine small forward and Mindfulness coach(s). He just couldn’t help himself as he was never going to win a flag with his game style.

That’s where Hocking came in after changing the rules, he then brought in different assistants who challenged him if he wanted to continue his coaching with the Cats to tweak his game style and embrace this ‘caring’ , ‘mindfulness’ approach.

He may have given the Cats ammunition for 23 but can’t wait. Bring it on.

Can’t wait to play the Cats next year.
