Curious to know what Hawks supporters think. Are they confident Flinn will do a reasonable job of mounding a budget group in to a competitive playoff aspirant?

Wooden spoon headed their way.

Question is, are we watching the death-throws of another proud club? No money, no crowds, a rookie coach who's going to need to scrape the barrel and beg his mates to come play.

Could they get Martin and Foreman to come back and play for nothing?
Maybe Campbell could suit up, he's only 42.

Or will we again see the NBL manage the fixturing issue of 9 teams in the simplest way possible?

I have faith!
In Flinny, the club, the community & the players.

I'm predicting we'll have-

GUN IMPORT / Naar / White
Jett / Grida
Blanchfield / Glover
Moller / Coenraad
New 5 / Anderson

That's a deep, exciting 11 with plenty of youth, athleticism, guys that play D & some value vets.

Wouldn't mind Josh Boone in that 5 spot...

Cue the pessimists to shoot me down : )

Moller is no starter. Cool dude off the bench bringing energy, but not a starter.

Is Moller contracted? He is a starter given a chance got all the tools just needs opportunity. Melbourne are stacked.

It's hardly pessimism to point out that you are full of shit.

The club has no freakin money. End of story
Couldn't even afford to pay Bevo any more.

I'd like to see Jett stick around, but after this season he'll probably get better offers. Flipping burgers at Maccas probably pays more.

Can see Hawks getting 8th or 9th.

The mans allowed to support his club, probably led with his jaw a bit, but Jett would look good flipping burgers next to you.

Boone's not getting any younger, which will bring his price down & I can't see the big money clubs going there next year when there's younger talents out there, so if he likes the Aussie lifestyle & the chance at longevity in the league, one of the smaller market teams may be his best shot?

Geez, either Cooks doesn't want the big head coaching gig or they just don't think he can get the job done....He's been an assistant for forever and a day...

Cooks is the modern day Dave Hancock.

Many seem to forget Cooks was the head coach and stepped down wanting to be an assistant again. Odd but it is what it is.

How similar are head and assistant coaching roles anyway? It's not that hard to believe someone could be far better suited to one than the other.
