Great video - thanks for posting


#5632

Saw this fella wondering around the MCC at the Geelong Richmond game with his girlfriend last night. Doesn’t seem to take a breather from football.


#5633

Fair point, but it’s very hard to tackle somebody when you have the ball in your hands.


#5634

And Clarke aswell now!


#5635

When you’re doing the good work Hepp is for kids off the field you’re more than entitled to keep that shithouse haircut.

Good on you captain. Class act.


#5636

I don’t get the hate for this guy.

But he legit puts his body on the line consistently.

Doesn’t pinch blokes either


#5637

The hate comes from needing to kick a captain’s goal… but missing it badly.


#5638

He works his guts out every week and never stops putting in, but his game suffers from his constant howlers - and consequently the team.
His disposal is flakey and some of his decision making is ordinary.
One weakness the team has is that we lack midfielders who constantly kick goals for us. I include Heppell in this.


#5639

In close in the packs he is very very good. But when it’s time to kick…


#5640

How good was Dys with Harrison and his brother in the rooms after the game. Little H facing a stem cell transplant with his brother the donor. The genuine care and affection was beautiful to watch. Wishing H a smooth as possible journey through what will be a challenging time.
I was very proud of our captain.

Thought was a generally very good game from Hep, unfortunately that gets overshadowed by the glaringly poor moments. Bit like Stanton.

Thought Hep had 3 times if had more class/composure could have kicked goals for us… 2 via snaps and that wide open shot also

Opposition rebounded on the latter and goaled

Momentum killer

And then just amateur footy to seemingly have no options so instead of kicking to contest on the boundary line just kicks it high and long along edge of centre square to where all the Hawks numbers are & they win footy transition and end up goaling again.

Just should not happen


#5642

Missed a wide open shot for goal before half time under zero pressure.

Then, with hawthorn pressing, 40 seconds to half time decides that a high, loopy kick into the corridor to a tippa 3 on 1 is a good idea.

Someone needs to pull him aside and tell him to play within his obviously terrible limitations. That and smarten up.


#5643

And what about the rest of the game where he put himself on the line numerous times, won a number cfo contests, created run and provided a link or shepherd on many plays? Did he do enough or be smart enough then for you or is it just a matter of highlighting only his mistakes and not commenting on all the good work he does?


#5644

He was very good last night especially in traffic. Just needs to change his thought process when kicking. Still reasonably good over 15-30m with his passing but anything more than that and more often than not it’s a floating rain maker or turn over. Hopefully we start to see him give off a bit more to guys running past.


#5645

He’s a great player, and a great captain.
We would be a far lesser team without him.
