AFL since 2016: Fremantle go from 1st on the ladder to 4 wins and dont play finals with demoralzing beltings sprinkled generously throughout, Richmond win 3 flags, Martin 3 norm smiths and the Eagles snag a flag too. AFL can get the biggest, brownest dog right up it.

shoutout to Mason Cox for possibly preventing a Richmond 4peat
Ugggh, Richmond supporters are going to put Hawks supporters to shame after this one
I’m going to have to stay off the main board and ranking draft threads for the next 4 months at least

I still just don't know about this Richmond team. Maybe it's just bias but I still think they would get murdered by teams like the 07'-11 Cats, 08 Hawks, 13-15 Hawks 10-11 Collingwood or even the 09 Saints. I think their style is just perfectly suited to finals and its simple enough for every player to buy into it entirely so everyone knows whats expected to win. I also feel like AFL equalisation has resulted in a comp that's relatively more even, so there's no super teams going though with %'s of like 150+. But hey a flags a flag I guess.

It’s justified. Just enjoy watching a legend in his prime.
No way. He played ok but no way was he best on ground. A couple of goals were gotten in junk time for starters. Shows how perceptions rule these sort of awards. Norm Smith is possibly the most overrated award of all time. It has a lot of luster as it generally means you have a premiership, but individually you can be in amongst the pack and still win it.

Without his goal before half time they don't win the game, it's as simple as that.

To think I used to hate Richmond cod they were so pathetic and laughable and they used to try and buy in players every year for it only to go arse-up and they’d still be as sh*t as they were the year before. My secret fear was that we’d end up like them - just sh*t year in and year out. ‘fu** I hope we don’t end up like Richmond - pathetic bunch of ‘Maurice Rioli thieving acting like they discovered him’ bunch of useless campaigners’.
And there they were, and here we are, and there that are... is there hope?
