Police are now probing. That’s not to say that Baker’s at fault of course, but I’m kinda getting sick of seeing us in the news for things like this tbh. I don’t know the facts, but is it really that hard to avoid being in the situations that some of our players have found themselves in?

Starting to get over it even putting aside the media vultures that are starting to become more like gossip columnists than journalists that report on facts.

Was going to write the other day Bakes is the best ground ball get winner in the AFL.
Wins the ball at ground level in the hot spot of the halfback line and disrupts the opposition chain of possession and forward entries.
Just our young players need to be careful at venues because there's always some nobody (not referring to the other person) who wants to take a cheap potshot.
Elite star athletes like Liam need to be careful of grog intake.

Bakes is underrated

Last night I re-watched the prelim v Poort and GF ...Bakes created so much run and carry off he / bp...sublime foot skills running at full tilt...matched it with Duckwood in the aggro

Im 100% behind Baker...one of my favourite players
He is a ******* gun ... absolutely !!

Richmond dual premiership defender Liam Baker has been cleared of any wrongdoing in a nightclub incident late last month.

Baker, 23, was capsicum-sprayed by a female pub goer outside the Osborne Rooftop and Bar in South Yarra on January 31 about 1.30am.

The club on Monday confirmed Baker had been cleared for his involvement in the matter after talks with the backman and a review of the closed circuit television from the nightclub.


While the Tigers would not comment on the situation, the club now considered the matter finalised.

At 0:50.

I love this guy, seriously, there’s just something about him.

Settle down campaigners this ain’t at the Greg Stafford level, but it’s close...

Looking forward to seeing him in 2021. Once again campaigners, not on the footy field, but from the stands...

He’s in my Top 5 favourite players. Tough, courageous, skilful, exciting, reliable.

Just as an aside, about that gif:


In the actual scene, what the fu** is going on? Did he really need to zoom in on in the image? Get some glasses Antonio you campaigner.

Reckon he'll be Cotch's replacement in the middle once Cotch retires.
Makes sense.Already has the defensive mindset.Doesn't take a backward step.Big moments player.
Cotchin is a wrecking ball and baker is tiny.

People seem keen on fixing what's not broken. Why not just leave short and baker in their current roles?

Vlastuin is more likely to be pushed middle
