Hawthorn v Essendon- 'Line in the sand' match fights
This is the infamous 'Line in the sand' match between the Hawthorn Hawks and the Essendon Bombers in 2004. The Hawks had lost their past 8 games against the Bombers, spanning the past 7 years. ENOUGH was ENOUGH! Time to draw a "line in the sand"! These were the words Hawthorn legend and known Essendon hater Dermott Brereton used in his pre-match address to the Hawks players before this match. Essendon won the match.
