I don't know if you're familiar with basketball, but if you are, it's akin to a full court press. Every possession has pressure on it and it becomes hard to execute under pressure. Collingwood are the best at this, and Hawthorn are the second best. The hard part is keeping it up over the full 4 quarters, but given Hawthorn's form I reckon they're capable of it.

A press is the opposite to man-for-man setup (if I'm interpreting that correctly). It's more of a moving zone.

This is for the midfield and forward line for Hawthorn ftr. I'm aware they play a zone defence most of the time.
Yeah exactly, their defence zones but still presses forward. If you go over it, like Adelaide did in Round 1, they are ****ed.
A zone is playing off an oponent and setting up a structure.
A press has no structure as such. It's just harass the **** out of the guy with the ball.
It's hard to go 'over' a zone when a press is in place up the field. If the press is broken, then the zone becomes harder to pull off.
Yeah but the point is, as has been shown over the last 2 years, they can't keep up the pressure constantly. All well and good to say you have a game plan to put pressure on your opponents. Only did it properly vs. us this year and the second half vs. Melbourne.
