Well I give up. In the hours since their clinical grand final performance, I’ve run through all the potential contenders, and I seriously can’t find one I’d happily put my money on to stop Hawthorn winning a fourth successive flag in 2016.
It hasn’t worked out the way I thought it would, when all those weeks ago I declared Hawthorn were virtually good things to win the AFL premiership. But here we are at grand final week, and guess what? I still think Hawthorn are good things to win the flag.
I had a conversation with a colleague yesterday about the news Adam Goodes had announced his retirement for football. The response I received when I brought up the topic baffled and angered me.
Some call it a ‘darby’. Others go with ‘derrby’ or ‘derby’. It doesn’t really matter whether you go with a hard E, a soft E, or an E that sounds like an A.
So here we are again. September. And while all the teams this season got to play September footy, the real stuff begins on the second weekend in the ninth month of this year’s calendar.
Well there it is for another season, and all with a round remaining.
