James Hird: Releases the lid right off!


#2893

The Rage and AFL do reports quoting Hird on Essendon chances, ripped off from Hird’s comments in the podcast. Admittedly, with attribution, but Crawford must be on the nose , as the AFL refers to him as “former Hawthorn midfielder”. Just airbrush his Brownlow.


#2894

Crawford is now tainted.


#2895

He was clearly taking the ■■■■ but has reeled in plenty with this one. good bit of publicity for the podcast. and got the nuffies foaming and frothing all over the place.


#2896

Funny to hear we talked to Sam Mitchell prior to the Hawks three peat.


#2897

Bullet dodged… by Sam…


#2898

What did Hird ACTUALLY say?
Ive seen media statements that he said we CAN win the premiership and that we WILL win the premiership.


#2899

It was pretty much “if they make finals, they’ll win it”
The context being we’d have to knock off Port over there, Hawthorn, Richmond, all under huge pressure, just to make 8th.
The comment was more about how hard it’ll be just to make the 8 than a reaistic prediction.

Hird as coach: “One week as a time, structures, (+ get lost Demetriou) etc”

Hird as a podcaster: “See the Bombers fly up, up…”


#2901

Hird article on EFC website…Club is now more accepting of him? Hmmm…


#2902

but no acknowledgement where the quote comes from


#2903

Except they only took the second half of the article from the AFL website, so it just refers to him as ‘Hird’, not James Hird, which seems weird.


#2904

The Rage and the AFL both gave the source as the podcast.


#2905

From the Podcast Facebook site (fitness test before his last game)
