    Prodigal sons ranked

    Prodigal sons ranked. Players returning to their original club after spending time at another one. Clubs dont always hold it against the player for leaving or in some cases wish they hadnt traded him and bring that player back to the club. Somethimes it works somethimes it doesnt. How do they...

    Best VFL/AFL Footballer autobiography you have read

    With the lockdown, books have become an option. Just read David Schwartz autobiography and was suprised at how honest he was about what type of bloke he was during his football career due to his gambling. He was prepared to take you through his selfish thinking throughout it all. The other...

We would have salary cap room which would only be used up for a year. But...

    Has lack of finals made you as a supporter less able to handle finals pressure.

    Had alot of trouble watching tonight. Couldnt sit down and needed to walk around. Lucky I wasnt there. I found that the tension of watching the game was worse that when I was a kid. Poses the question, has our lack of finals over the years and dead rubbers at this stage of the season made...

    How many games will you go to for rest of year

    Just wanted to get an idea of how many games people on here are likely to go to for the rest of the year compared to games you would attend if we had a season as projected. Just trying to guage the loss of attendance that the club will suffer as a result of our year to date. not trying to...

    Can we drop a game against Melbourne - GWS

    Would be a huge week for the club if we dropped one of these games after the cats game and for those who want change, then they might not be overly upset if it did happen. The cats will beat us but wont ream us to precipitate the type of call for change that these weeks may bring about. I think...

    Will forgive all, if on Friday we......

    Friday night I will absolve all sins of this year if we can finally beat these f***ers. (gooses was inserted by the swear filter. No idea who still uses that word. ) Does the Headlines next week read.. Tigers are back OR do they read. Swann answers critics with 40 possession 4 goal game.

    Will be longest summer I can remember.

    My anticipation for something to happen next year will be at a peak and it will be hell waiting for it to happen. Even after Wallaces fourth year (false dawn) and Frawleys first year, I wasnt as eager for next season to start. Things should happen next year and people will be under the...

    Free Agency - Big name or Dedudding your list.

    With Free Agency would you prefer your club use it to obtain that big name who you can consistently bank on and whose big game will take you close to winning. Or would you rather your club looked at all the players that frustrate but the club keeps on because they fill a role. Then used Free...

    Open Mike - Jason Ackermanis

    He is honest about his own experiences. Good watching and even gets a part II on Sunday. Going to start talking more about relationships with people. He cant believe he cant get a media gig. Loved the way he is irked by those that are getting media gigs. Looks pretty desperate to use this...

    Preview Round 10 vs Saints - How big is Friday night???

    St Kilda have owned us for too long. Its a monkey to get off our back. Can we back it up. They are looking pretty good aswell. This is the type of game where we have failed in the past. Get the supporters wet and then leave them high and dry. Want to see that we are a different proposition...

    Jolly on Neale Daniher. Biggest whack to an ex coach.

    Always thought BT was brave by being so candid about Leigh Matthews in his Diaries back in 1990 but Jolly certainly is no fan of Neale Daniher. Rarely hear players come out so hard on an ex coach. Not really a good word about Neale literally. Usually players might try and soften it up a bit. I...

    Best ex Tiger running around in competition.

    With the retirement of Brad Ottens, who do you guys think is the ex Tiger who will perform the best over the next couple of years. A few good ones stand out. Shultz -> My first choice. If Port improve supply he could have a few days out. Polo -> My second choice. improving. Rodan ->...

    Caramel Topping and Wedding Cake

    I remember during hard times in the nineties starting up own business being out of food and waiting for single client to pay up. I ended up drinking some ice cream topping just to keep the sugar levels up. That is how it feels watching NAB cup.

    Do coaches need a reputation for being hard as players.

    No one challenges the skill that a coach had as a player in regards to whether they should be a coach and rightfully so. But given they implore hardness into every player do you think they need to have upheld that as a player in their own playing career. Guys like Leigh Matthews could tell his...

    Will a big game from Ottens next week make him the best player we have lost.

    People will throw up Graham Teasdale but despite his win in the 1977 Brownlow he spent a number of years at Collingwood playing in the reserves. Otto was always going to be a big loss but is he the biggest?. potentially a three time premiership player who has already been big factor in...

    Preventing damaging losses over development.

    Does anyone see two different agendas that Richmond need to be aware of. 1. Development of players and finding out who can play. 2. Avoiding an embarrassing loss by a decent margin. I think we can prevent it but on a bad day, all the teams we play with the exception of Adelaide can give us...

    If a team was really pusing for a premiership next year, would they take...

    Chris Newman. If you were Carlton or Hawthorn and felt that with Collingwood having their two premierships that you were a genuine chance next year for the premiership, would you look at Newman for the next couple of years, even if you had to give up a fair bit of tommorrow for him. He...

    Which of our players appear on the footy show.

    I dont watch the show so just wondered if any of our players appear on it and appear to becoming a regular. I think Riewoldt and Deledio have been on. I know there is some marketing angle that is good for our players to make appearances like this. Maguire seems to understand that, ensuring...

    How do you guys rate your mature recruits.

    Good win guys. Good to see Brown being what he needs to be for you. I thought he was very dissapointing in his suspension early in the piece given the need for all those blokes to be out there for the first half of the year. You can now say that every mature recruit has delivered. Even...
