RICHMOND is chasing an extra $35 million for the redevelopment of Punt Road Oval and is set to scale up its fundraising efforts in the coming months.

I guess we are still waiting on an announcement from the State Gov. on what's happening with our new base?

edit - great graphic showing Govt funding for club redevelopment in this thread, we are looking pretty paltry compared to the rest of the list.

So Leigh Matthews has a theory that if your lead in goals is greater than the minutes leftz you should win the game.

Melbourne kicked 5 goals in 2.42m of game time either side of 3/4 time.

Has anyone told BT? Anyone checked in to see if he's ok?

Hey guys I'm just watching the replay of the AFL Grand final.

10 minutes to go in the third, and BT and Brayshaw are just talking up this game from the dogs and how great they are.

Bomt just kicked a goal to put them up 19 points. Surely they don't lose from here?
Was that when they announced Bont as the Norm Smith medal winner and the greatest Bulldog player ever?

Haha, yes it was right then that BT announced that.

Honestly the excitement in his voice being sucked out with every Melbourne goal was epic.

I honestly can not believe channel 7 keep him

BT was never on us all year was he, waiting for the wheels to fall off (maybe that makes him a dees diehard 🤔)

I think BT’s gimmick has worn off and he is past his used by date, but to be fair to him, even Brayshaw loses the zip in his voice during the 4th qtr precession. “..and another one”. “They just can’t stop going through”.

Must have had all the excitement of a 2nd innings in a 1 inning cricket match for the neutrals.

I have no issue with the 7 commentary , like most people they possibly could not believe what they were seeing after half way through the 3rd Q .
A Geelong mate rang me at 3/4 time to say we had this , but like most Demon supporters I refused to believe it until the final siren went . The last Quarter was an orgy of goals that even the Red Fox would of been proud of .

Picking apart commentator’s words after the fact is a fruitless exercise.

Nobody has a crystal ball.

It's not just the Grand Final call though.
When BT starts whispering when he's commentating and then starts to go on about things not even related to the game of football, he can go out to pasture as far as I'm concerned.
That's probably a discussion for a different thread though.

Yeah fair enough, I just figure AFL commentary is very low level across the board. BT is far less irritating than Brayshaw IMO.

That description sounds like BT.
The others were Luke Hodge, former Hawthorn captain.
James Brayshaw, who is the uncle of our Angus.
Daisy is the captain of Melbourne's women's team.
Abbey Holmes, retired Women's League footballer.
