Lloyd suffered from a number of players at his position and somewhat Richmond's game style.
He was much more suited to the Dogs.

Not sure I ever made that bolded argument. In fact I certainly didnt.
The argument I did make though is if Menadue couldn't get games in 2019 when you had 10+ players out injured, in his what 6th season of AFL footy, he was never going to make best 22.

This is obvious to literally everybody except you and THE GUN
and menadue didnt?

Stack, Pickett, Edwards, Lambert, Caddy, Bolton, George .....

Loving how an Adelaide supports pots a player from another club whilst his team has a Jordan Gallucci who was a 1st round pick after 3 years averaging just 11 touches at 66% and managed 27 games. Crows are full of champions
I love it how YOU (wont even call you a Richmond fan because its unfair to the rest) keep arguing the same point even though YOUR OWN supporters have said that he's not up to AFL standard.

Didnt see Gallucci's name on the thread title, but seeing as we're discussing him...does he still have a list spot?
Oh he does? Well that makes him better than Menadue doesnt it.

these are the same people who call Ellis a gun

there are lots of tigers fans many with bad takes

and menadue didnt?
He certainly didnt for most of 2019.
Half your squad was injured.
Played 6 games for the year. 1 could be considered good.

A massive 9 disposal effort in 82% game time against the bombers is a personal favourite.

Which wingers were injured?

for a crows fan your tigers knowledge is top shelf
You had plenty of wingers/flankers out.
Enough for him to get 5 games in a row where 1 was good and the rest average or poor.

I saw that game against Freo. He was pretty decent.
But he didn't show that in any of his other games in 2019 or previously.

He was just about worst on ground against us at AO.

specifics would be too hard eh

maybe you dont know what your talking about

the menadue hill is a strange one for you to take a stand on. I hope he becomes a handy player at Freo but who knows maybe your right

I literally gave them to you.

Bet you he never plays AFL again.

I just came here to discuss him to run into a couple of 'head in the clouds' tigers fans.
Luckily the majority of tigers fans here also know what they're on about.

This is only a reflection on the quality of the list at the crows and by judging this it would indicate that Menadue would clearly be still on a list at the crows
Now rather than deflect from the topic by getting into what other richmond supporters think and see and your claims about me being bias with Richmond players perhaps you might like to run through my posts regarding Ben Lennon / Corey Ellis / Shaun Hampson and a few others

But lets get back to Menadue , Judging by your 5 games of football you have seen him, Perhaps you might like to enlighten us as to what he is missing that a Jordan gallucci has that keeps him on an afl list ?

Naming obvious spuds as spuds doesn't make you any less one-eyed.

Well for a start Jordan Gallucci is quicker and more skilled, younger, tougher and has the best vertical leap on our list.

This year will be the real make or break one for him. He will have plenty of opportunity to play midfield (Which he hasnt previously).
He has shown glimpses of pure class, but not enough consistency.

He may not have what it takes to remain on the list, but he's shown more in less games than Menadue.

You're comparing someone who would be on every list in the AFL to a guy who is fighting to find one interested club after being delisted.
According to you our list is so bad but we still didnt want Menadue. What does that tell you about him?

Repeat sprint results are 0.1 second apart over 5 sprints.
He cant match up in any other area, not even close.

So in Menadues BEST feature he breaks even with a guy who you dont think deserves a list spot.

Hilarious.

I'll be suprised if he remains a DFA, I think he's good enough to be on an AFL list, and would have been happy to give him one more year in our system. Had played some great VFL footy, and has even had a few nice AFL games. Hope he gets another shot.

Would be a travesty to see Townsend on an AFL list year and not this bloke.

He is just not that good.. The role he plays is so easy to fill at the afl level..

There's a lot of not that good players on a list though, he'd be getting a game at some weaker clubs.
So would Mitch Brown but there comes a point where non developing fringe players should be let go for blokes who are capable of becoming quality AFL players.

Nope.
He's not best 22 at any AFL club including gold coast.
Don't have to be best 22 to get a game.

I actually don't mind him at Gold Coast if there is still rookie spot available. Use it or lose it.

Use it on a kid that might have some talent.
Not one thats what 7 years in the system and has shown hes likely not up to the top level.

Richmond barely had 22 fit players at points last year and he struggled to get a game.
