Why did they spend so long talking about Roughead's retirement compared to Sandilands'? Sandilands was arguably the better player and was just as great of a person off-field. No disrespect to Roughead but he's being gifted a farewell game whereas Sandilands worked his way back into the team and was still playing pretty well.
Probably something to do with premierships and coming back from cancer

A depth of connection....really?

Watch Jack and Shuey tonight.
Jack "well, WC are the reigning premiers and we really respect them".
Shuey "Richmond have probably been the best side for the last 2 years".

It will be full of generic and vanilla answers.

This isn't the players fault of course.
They just know they can't give anything away.
Pretty much went as expected.

You can't blame the players though.
Dima spoke really well on Monday night about the strengths of both WC and Richmond and the papers
turned it into a headline.

Can't believe they have persisted for years with the same player guests routine, when it's clear the punters don't want it.

Here's an idea - get rid of current players full stop, and let experts analyse the game properly.
I agree with you, but let's not pretend making that change would make people happy. Everyone here would just pivot to bitching about the experts instead. And it wouldn't matter who the experts were either. Reasons would be found to hate them.

People just love to moan.

Agreed.

Yep less Treloar, more Maclure that's the way to solve it!
