I'd suggest he knows that is the case...premiership player etc and I believe the club has regular contact & he'd still be very close to alot of players/coaches etc...
Yes i know that but my comment was to the poster who asked why not give #18 to MJ

Can’t wait to see this guy play.
His second and third defensive efforts are immense and he just sticks tackles.
Will be super exciting to watch this aspect of his game.

Just put him at the feet of Lynch while he builds his endurance, which is what will keep him in the VFL initially. I reckon he will end up a small forward with the offensive ability of Eddie Betts and the strong tackling of a supercharged Tippa. I think his defensive and tackling pressure ceiling could potentially not be compared to any other AFL player. I’m struggling to think of a comparison for this trait.

Not sure if he will ever make it to the midfield but with the above attributes, I don’t think I really care.

Such an exciting prospect. Get him fit and learn the Richmond system.

I'd like to just let MRJ to be himself, end of story
Mat Richardson was nothing like his dad Alan
Joel Bowden was nothing like his dad Michael
David Bourke was nothing like his dad Francis
No crazy expectations and no pressure to be something that he's not :) 👍
See if he can better Nick Jewell’s one stellar performance in his only match. That should lower the bar a bit. 😁
