When Richmond were sh*t we all had one thing in common our love for Richmond and we got around each other and bonded over The RFC, however it feels like in some ways some have lost sight of this recently. As we move into Season 2021 and the clubs quest for a threepeat we feel it is time to re-evaluate where we stand as a board and As a mod team we also need to re-evaluate how the board is run.

Recently we have noticed more complaints and more angst and whilst we are generally pretty chill on these kinds of things it has reached a point where some changes need to be made

We are a football board first and foremost and while we have general chat threads we shouldn't lose sight of this football focus.
If you wish to discuss specialist topics there are plenty of boards to discuss these things.
People baiting, starting fights and generally being a nuisance will be thread banned and carded for repeat offenders
Remember those that have a different opinion to you are not always trolling or wrong and don't deserve to be abused, by all means have a robust discussion but remember the number 1 rule of big footy, Play the ball not the man, there are real people behind the posts and at the end of the day whilst we may disagree there shouldn't be lingering anger or resentment. You should be able to still shake hands and have a beer at one of our meetups.

Most of all though remember the main thing, we all love Richmond that's why we are all here, it's us against everyone else not us against each other.

If you scroll to the bottom of the forum list you will find a whole plethora of subforums covering a range of topics from politics to tv and movies to current events and even conspiracies.


As always though our pms are open for anyone who wants a general chat or to discuss board matters or concerns. Please remember though there are 4 of us, if you have a question about a specific incident try to include everyone to ensure you get the best possible answer.

Yes, we need this reminder so thank you Sterge. The only thing is that those other specialist boards under the “Not Footy Related” forums can also be hostile lol.

Been here a while now and recently I disagreed with a post strongly and it was the only time another Tiger told me openly to go fu** myself. I didn't make a complaint but the disapointing thing was that it wasn't called out by anyone else in the thread.

I'd agree the overall tone, particularly over Sydney Stack, Dimma's private life and some other situations around the club has become openly hostile at times. I use the block feature and I'm sure there's been a few use it against me too lol

Sometimes things get lost in translation but even allowing for that we all support the same team. We can agree to disagree can't we ? Let's aim our frustrations at the other teams.

There was a time when winning solved everything. It seems like only yesterday. A friendly reminder to sit back and enjoy the ride.

Same - that said if you take anything said on a forum too much to heart it is probably time for a rest - yes there are people behind every post but commonsense ain't always so common!
