10 years and 6 flags between two clubs, just shows you how amazing our flag was. I cant see another struggling Victorian club or a non powerhouse interstate club getting near a flag in the next 10 years if things dont change
Greg Pickaver said yesterday it’s between just 4 teams these days (didn’t name them but not hard to work out most of them). He mentioned the Bulldogs as a notable exception (like everything in 2016).

We’re not as close to equalisation as we thought.

Just wondering whether Caleb Daniel is still the only player to have received a premiership medallion from somebody taller than himself.

Greig Pickhaver ( Roy and Hg ) said the same thing above and we are miles and miles away from equalisation I am so glad we won it 2016 we where a great team but everything went right for us in those 4 weeks I cant see another club like the Saints North or Deees getting those things right for a very very long time

Gary Rohan will go down as one of the shittest Grand finals player of all time

Dusty is just so damaging with nearly every possession. If you go by the stats sheet you’re looking in the wrong place.
Absolutely. That is defined as elite. And as much as we love players like Macrae, hunter and Dunkley who can rack up 40 with ease, they will never be classed as elite in my mind. Martin is totally next level

Gee we got the absolute best out of Dahlhaus
He was abysmal.

Danger was anonymous, but your bottom six needs to be better than the other bottom six and Dahl, Rohan, Kolodjashnij, O’Connor, Bews, Henderson and Rohan were way too short of Richmond’s bottom six.

I’m aware I listed Rohan twice. Doesn’t he deserve it? Surely the Leon Davis medal is actually the Rohan medal?!

In other news, Dusty was by far the NS medallist. 4 and 20 is surely enough anyway, but when the game was slipping away from them he stood up like he always does and snagged an amazing goal. Anyone who thinks it’s because of a narrative is plain wrong.

Really, really happy Geelong didn’t win. Can’t stand them. Hate their coach, hate their players, hate their fans.

Hope this is the last Richmond flag we see in a while but.

At least the annual Dusty is better than Dangerfield argument I keep getting sucked into is unloseable now.

I truly think we could have done what they did if our coach didn’t think he knew better than everyone else but that’s footy
I think our time will come. People here talking about equalisation not working...teams nearly always win premierships in pairs or groups, thats how it goes.

AFL Narrative would have been a Geelong win and an Ablett/Danger draw for the NS. While it would have been good to see another player win the NS (Bolton for example), Dusty fully deserved this one (his first one - not so much).

Houli had no impact on the game. Set up at least one goal. He did the job that Geelong needed him to do with others around him expected to hit the score board.

He is in a better team with different expectations than he would with us.

They keep it simple.

Play players in the position they are strong at and coach them to play that position.

Forwards learn their craft, backs likewise and mids used how they should.
