I think Grimes is the ideal replacement, but from what Jack said on AFL360 looks the older guys will help try to blood a younger captain. JGTIThanks Cotch.
A Richmond legend.
I'd also like Grimes to be the next Captain if they go with more experience.
I think Cotch was a good young Captain to lead a young team and grow together but I feel with a more mature team we should go Grimes, Floss, Dusty ahead of Graham for the time being.
Would have loved to see what Dale Weightman could have achieved in the same era. Neck and neck for mine!It is a brave decision by a player who in his last game does a PCL injury early on and still grinds out the whole match.
One of the great captains of the RFC maybe only Jack Dyer ahead of him for renown but what great heights did he achieve being captain.
Cotchin one of the best true ruck rovers the AFL has seen and brave also because a fit Tigers outfit and we are a shot for another premiership
giving up a realistic chance of being a four time premiership captain for benefit of the club and its succession planing
Well done champ. Tiger Captain for life.
