Hirdy never got a clear run at it.
2011 we were coming from way back. Which lead to the decision to implement a supplement program.
2012 we copped 7342 soft tissue injures.
2013 the ■■■■■■■ saga broke. Had the team 2nd on the ladder when reports suggests the AFL let the playing group know there was no way they would be allowed to play finals that year. Amazing performance to get the playing group to that position considering all the external distractions, all the media attention and even ■■■■ like the players having to be interviewed by The ASADA and AFL cockwombles.
2014 forced to sit the year out to appease the AFL for the ■■■■■■■ optics.
2015 player get cleared only for WADA to come over the top and destroy another season a put the final nail in Hird's coffin.
