Ridiculous. This is probably the worst comment ive heard of the 2015 draft class. How much responsibility did you attribute to Dusty when Richmond finished bottom 8 in 2012?
About a 18th

Richmond fans doing an excellent job of pretending the world didn't exist between 1980 and 2017.
How is that related to Daneil Rioli?

Because we all know that the team success-based arguments about why Daniel Rioli is the greatest man alive definitely wouldn't have been entertained by yourself when talking about guys like Matthew Richardson. I'm near certain that you're not going to bullshit that Richo needs to take some responsibility for his team's lack of success.

At the end of the day though, the real loser here is me. Why the **** am I wasting my time talking to a guy with two troll accounts? Oh lord I wish I wasn't so horribly lonely at Christmas.

Here’s a crazy idea, stop posting in this thread? You haven’t really contributed much apart from let everyone know that you’re very single.

Time to get outside, my dude.

On the contrary, I believe I've made it clear to everyone that you're nuts.

As for walking away, I truly am sorry but I just can't do that. Shitposting and poor arguments cannot go unchecked.

Zoom has been fine. Just overrates Rioli's production imo. None of what he's posted has been unreasonable .

Gresham has more runs on the board IMO. Rioli missing half the year doesn’t help last season.

I think it’s a close contest though. If I had to pick one personally I’d go Rioli. He just had a bit of magic about him. If he gets his fitness up and makes an impact in the midfield that’s going to be huge for the tigers.

But totally understand Gresham being in front as it stands.

Seriously surprised at how underrated Gresham is. I understand by playing in a shit side you get overlooked, but comments saying it’s a joke he’s rated above Rioli are ridiculous.
I’ll leave this here, you can figure out which one is Rioli and which is Gresh.

Tackles is the main stat for small forwards and Rioli is the best in the business.Also Rioli is a big game player and Gresham yet to be tested yet.I may have underrated Gresham, but Rioli is the prototype small forward, let's review this thread in round 12 to see how much Rioli has improved with a proper pre-season.

I'd take goals over tackles from my small forwards tbh

Its not the tackle stat thats important. Its more that often if Rioli is within 40 yard of a defender with the ball they shit themselves. Im not sure if championdata have that categorized yet into data form. There are many bits of Riolis game and Grimes down the other end that transcend stats.

So because he kicked 4 goals once and is fast that makes him better than those players above?

You’re really selling it to me:thumbsu:

Spot on Proust, oppo teams do shiz themselves when Rioli has the ball because he's evasive, highly skilled and kicks goals not even Jade Gresham would dream about. Anyhow ,wait until Rioli moves into the midfield with a full pre-season, he will be as strong as an ox this year, I'm scared of the damage he will do even just thinking about it.

I can’t even defend some of the stuff being said by Richmond fans in here
I can sort of see where theyrr coming from. Do I think Dan will overtake Jade? Yes. Is it going to be soon (within 2 seasons)? Maybe, leaning yes. Has it happened yet? No.

Its the name your cohorts have become enamoured with and the fact he's shown signs he will live up to his pedigree. They could stop acting like hes a finished product though as Dan still has a ways to go yet.

I have and he's very good, better than I thought actually.He looks a classic crumbing forward whilst Rioli can play mid when fit enough.
Gresh starting playing midfield in the back half of the season and played his under 18s through the midfield. He hasn't had the tank to play midfield permanently but should spend most of his time there next season.

I am getting my tickets to the Saints Tiger clash next year because I could be watching two of the GOAT:p and I hope the Bigfooty servers have been upgraded for that week because this debate will increase by 100
