I wonder what Hird thought of his 2001 GF teammates who wore black armbands near their elbows to mock Brisbane, who to that point had been hooking the players up to IV drips before it was outlawed?

Not being an enormous hypocrite, I'm sure as captain he gave them a stern talking to.

I think what he's saying, Corporal, is that it's a bad look for a player to be mimicking an injection into his arm in front of a big crowd and a live television audience. If he wants to do that sort of thing he really should do it away from all that, at an offsite location, and not tell anyone else what he did.

That's about it, really.

We all want to take the mickey out of of Essendon and particularly Hird over this and in that sense, most of us are quietly or otherwise, applauding Mitchell for giving vent to our collective frustration with the hypocritical whinging coming out of Bomber Command. Hird is, if it's at all possible, looking even more of a prat than ever, the big headed, flappy eared goose.

But you can't go about in public pretending to be shooting up and expect that to be accepted without reprimand. I made the mistake of doing that at the markets, ordering coffee and saying hit me up... dunno what was in the coffee but I woke up days later, miles away, covered in bruises. That brings me around to having lunch with Merc, actually.... but that's something for him to explain. I still don't know what happened, but I did get my phone back. Eventually.

To be honest, I think it was average at best by Mitchell. There's such a thing as being a bad winner and a bad loser, and the hawks are both.

The hawks were on top and had the game won. It wasn't necessary, it was an action of arrogance which is displayed time and again from the coach down.

Substitute crowleys name for bombers and we'd be calling for lifetime bans. Substitute crowleys name for Mitchell and the club would get a please explain.

My belief is that when you're in front, shut your trap and enjoy the moment. The hawks have had a good run for a long time, not too dissimilar from our slime friends a few years back and look how their players and supporters turned out.

I say, be humble in victory, and in praise in defeat. You won't win them all for ever and karma has a bigger stick than any verbal trash or otherwise.

Hope Mitchell gets his reality checked soon to see how he handles it when the poo shoe is on the other foot.

Pretend injections a bad look? Just imagine that they are pretend vaccinations. Injections themselves aren't bad. Injecting performance enhancing drugs is offensive, and should be mocked publicly.

That sounds like something Adam Selwood's lawyer came up with.

'I was just reminding him that flu season is upon us and he should make sure he and his family are vaccinated. Then he punched me.'

My god the players are running amok! What with A Goods throwing non existing spears and taking out imaginary eyes , and now Mitchell injecting imaginary drugs, what will we see next? I am tipping very soon perhaps an ISIS style imaginary beheading. ....... oh wait Kevin Sheedy the old BOMBERS coach has already done that one.

I do agree McKenzie, that if it were any other team, except maybe the Cats, the media and fans in Vic would be clamouring for the offending player to be suspended for weeks for bringing the game into disrepute. Just because the Hawks announce publicly that they are an unsociable team, it doesn't mean they should be exempt from the rules. Once again the double standards of the AwFL are glaringly obvious.

Good point BP. Sheedy's gesture was supposed to be good for helping to create an intense rivalry between two teams. Be interesting to see if it was still thought of like that today.

Sheedy was fined $7500.

And was probably entitled to a return on that investment given the marketing guru driven rivalry that has grown since then.

There is always 3 sides of the story. His version, the other version and the truth. We should maybe be asking what was said to him that made him gob off.
