    If Saturday's events are a guide, then perhaps not too well!

    In general though I'd think they'd play off each other well. Franklin worked in tandem with Roughead for years at Hawthorn very successfully. Franklin is also more of a run-up-the-ground sort of guy than Tippett who fits a classic full forward mould.

    My commiserations. Mostly boring game from an objective observer's perspective, though sometimes it is nice to watch rampaging teams like that in full flight. Hawthorn dismantled Sydney almost as scarily as Sydney did North last week.

    I was at the Hawthorn / Port game last weekend and that was a game worthy of grand final status.

    Can't say I enjoyed watching the Hawks complete the three-peat but It warmed my heart to see an outstanding indigenous player take the Norm Smith.

    I've found the treatment of Goodesy really hard to stomach this season. Still love this game though.
