Balcony Banter: No reign on the parade

Grant Fraser is both a Hawks man and an MCC Member. In a recent offering on Balcony Banter, Grant offered his thoughts about Hawthorn’s performances over recent years.

  1. Great essay Grant, equal parts joy, nostalgia and circumspection. It is up to us whether we fall and keep falling (from 1992, for too many years) or whether we use what we have learned through hard times and good over the last 15 years. I’m tipping the latter, that is more indicative of the Hawks way. Onya.
