fu**, we had the game's best defender retire before the first match leaving us one short, then down two more after a kebab run. Edwards and Houli less than half the season, reigning b&f Prestia 5 games. Four MCG games all against co-tenants + Carlton, spankled by Hawthorn and St.Kilda, endless negative media storm about Lynch, arse-poking, Mrs Cotchin, staging etc. Footy department cuts that brought us back to the pack.

If - and it's a big if - we happen to win this year's flag it'll stand proudly and equally alongside the other two.
Well, for all that the teams form looks to be there right now.

Agreed, regardless of whether this is a club that people hate or love, they are very resilient to challenges that they face.

We've always been told Richmond have no depth, now injuries don't matter because we cover them well.

Wish big footy would make up their minds
A good team takes what's given
And exploits it
Your list management is outstanding
Your injury prevention Super

The performance of your seconds under McCrae is second to none
Spewed when he left
No doubt about it you guys are the benchmark
I think we're your biggest concern

My Cripe is with the officiating
The inconsistent interpretation

It's so poor
Example
Ducking the head
Blocking of the ball in the marking contest
The two hand handball ( throw every time)

Not really sure how I'm the one that's holding it. I don't have a dog in this fight and I've picked your team to go all the way.
Fair enough....but you do know we have injuries aswell yeah? It was only a week ago that our number one ruckmen just did his ACL. Also last year we battled hard to cover a heap of injuries to win enough games in the first half of the year.
In 2017, I will admit we had a good run.
Look at Geelong & Brisbane they have good runs on the injury front yearly but no one says anything because they don't win the flag.

Well done Tigers. I thought we matched it in pressure, but you had way too much class moving it forward. Team to beat again this finals series.
Thanks. You guys had an excellent final month. Just tigers had too much to play for today. Good signs for the Crows ahead.

Fair point. I obviously haven't looked closely enough at Richmonds ins/outs. Doing well though. Good luck in the finals.

Any injuries you have had, to an outsider like myself who doesn't keep tags on everything, look to have not had a great deal of impact.
I don't think the other teams thereabouts have been in that position tbh. But hey, if I'm wrong then I'm wrong.
Think the West Coast and Geelong wins flattered us a little as neither side played anywhere near as well as the previous time we played them. Dogs and North in the same boat.

On the flip side, Hawthorn, St.Kilda and Port played close to their best footy against us, and GWS applied themselves for four quarters like they've rarely done.

All said and done I'm reasonably content with the shape we're in entering the finals (as has been the case the past three years).We'll see I guess!

Mate..dont get me wrong everybody has the right to be an idiot every once in awhile but I really do think you're abusing the privilege
Have you ever been to Auskick
Ever watched Barry cable
Polly farmer
Lois handball
Seen a footy card

All never moved the arm holding the pill towards the target
They punched it of a stationary hand

Otherwise it's throwing the ball

It's rampant (all do it)
It's blatant

Over the head used to be tough to do without getting pinged. Some players are virtually flinging it backwards.

Surely these dumbos in the commentary box realise Geelong can’t overtake us seeing we are 6 points ahead of them?
Shocking has just announced all wins now worth 8 points for the cats, late rule interpertation

Yeah
Our games been hijacked to suit Murdoch
Umpires haven't a clue
Illegal disposal
Constant throwing as very few players display the correct technical skills
Games won and lost weekly by basic lack of understanding of the rules
Premierships not deserved due to incompetent officiating
No consistency


Only 1 team since this so called competition (event) started hasn't made a g/f
We adopt a NBA NFL drafting system without the ability to trade futures properly

So yeah
I'm angry
Who wouldn't be

Only a person who doesn't understand what footy could should and was would be rapt with this

Here's a thought what advantages me and disadvantages my opponent is a free kick
Keep whinging like this despite the plethora of advantages you club gets, and people'll start mistaking you for an Eagles supporter :thumbsu:

Easy big fell, you just worry about the eagles in Perth
Confident we'll get
Saints pies
Eagles dogs
Bris cats
Rich port

In the shorter contest
Our weakest link is out (Phillips)
We've beaten all but west coast and are always 50/50 with you
Imagine if Mason goes crazy

Looks like he's suddenly seeing the ball (legally blind pre season)
He's building nicely
Starting to strut

Hopefully we catch you guys during the finals
