Do you notice with the majority of these idiots that they always start their little paragraphs with ‘in terms of…..’ or ‘In essence….’ ‘With regards to…..’

Can he not state, ‘Although bullish on the Tigers list, Damian Hardwick feels the players could benefit from a fresh perspective on coaching. Damian Hardwick does not feel he is best suited to coach Richmond beyond 2023’
He can’t. Because he has the grammar skills of a 10 year old.

The 10 year old at the bottom of the class who’s parents dread teacher interview night.

He’s literally mentally deficient. Like there is actually something wrong with him. Daddy must have bought him that law degree.
It’s blokes like him the betoota advocate use as material to rip the piss from privileged elite school boys who need their daddy’s to give them a leg up.

He’s the legit archetype. The worst bit though is his old man came from a humble background. Clearly overcompensating to fit in with the old money crowd
 

Page 13: Damien Hardwick scoop eludes footy reporter Tom Browne​

The untold story of Damien Hardwick’s shock decision to walk away from Richmond is about the journo who almost had the biggest scoop of the year.
Tom Browne is one of the best in the business and last Wednesday — days before Richmond’s last minute loss to Essendon — Seven’s main football man sensed he was onto something.

He’d been tipped off that Hardwick was meeting with his manager, Melbourne’s Jerry Maguire, Paul Connors, at his favourite local cafe Miss Alex&Co in Elwood, so Browne quickly got a camera crew down there to get some shots.

Obviously a manager meeting his client happens regularly but Browne’s newshound nose sensed something was up.

Unfortunately he didn’t have enough meat on the bone to go to air with anything significant about Hardwick’s future.

So you can imagine how poor old Browne felt at 7pm on Monday night when Tom Morris went with the story on SEN.

There is nothing worse for a journo than when you have a sniff but don’t have enough to go with.

While Connors and Hardwick understandably denied to Browne they were talking about him quitting, what we’ve since learnt makes it more than likely it might have popped up in their deep discussions.

The Tigers coach revealed on Tuesday that he’d been thinking about walking away for a month, almost did it a couple of weeks ago after the Geelong victory but wanted to wait until after Saturday night’s Dreamtime Game against Essendon.

He didn’t officially notify anyone of his final decision until Sunday which was when Connors got a call and Tigers CEO Brendon Gale was invited around to his house for a couple of beers where he broke the news.

All of this would make Browne more and more frustrated but he was putting on a brave face at Hardwick’s farewell press conference, edging out his rival Tony Jones to ask the all important first question

That's a very charitable write up about Tom.

I would probably write it differently.

That is not a very flattering telling of events for our boy Tom.

It reads like whoever wrote it is mocking Brownes pathetic thirst to be seen as a legitimate news breaker.

This line really stands out from the rest of the snark. "So you can imagine how poor old Browne felt at 7pm on Monday night when Tom Morris went with the story on SEN."

Imagine being beaten to the punch by Tom Morris. Between the two of them, there isn't a bin in Melbourne that hasn't been bothered with.
