99 per cent of press conferences are staged in a room that may or may not be permanently furnished (I’m sure a ground like the MCG or Perth Stadium has a permanently furnished main media room), they have a desk that is decorated with the relevant sponsor logos and products, a couple of bottles of water, and a backdrop that may or may not be changed between interviews.
Press will gather straight after the game, they all know each other and often know the people being interviewed, they talk amongst themselves, a ground or league media manager will usher in one group of people - losing player and captain usually - will allow 4-5 minutes of questions then will say ‘time for one more’ and that’s what happens. They get rid of them then bring in the opposition captain and coach.
I have not been to any AFL post match pressers but have been to a handful of NRL ones and a dozen post-race conferences at the Bathurst 1000 and I’ve never known any venue to use two different media centres
he is just lying for the sake of it, I'm surprised you didn't point out his comment about the 'press area' being the size of a local league clubs.
Lower level clubs don't have press areas lol
Yeah I'm sure its really annoying getting caught out lyingYou have now taken the title for the most annoying Cats supporter from PB. He at least doesn’t believe in conspiracy theories and actually contributes to discussions.

"We won because of Dusty"
"Cotchin got it done when it mattered"
Which one is it?
The fact is Selwood outperformed Cotch in all the GF they have been in, Selwoods 5 and Cotchins 3. The Cats losing 2 haven't been Selwoods fault. Whereas Tugs winning 3 haven't been because of Cotch.
No. In 2008 Stokes came in hurt and played bad. Blake, Kelly, Mooney missed a sitter, Ottens missed a sitter.
In 2020 Rohan was unsighted, Ablett got hurt, Simpson KO'd, Parfitt, Hendo, Kolo, MOC. We were carrying passengers and a game style not fit to win.
I understand that you're unable to have a genuine discussion about the sport because you don't actually understand the nuances of the sport, but a singular player doesn't win or lose a game in something like the AFL.
What's his finals win rate Einstein?

As a Geelong supporter, you measure success by wins and losses all year round.
As Richmond supporters, we measure our success by wins and losses in the finals, where Dusty has literally stopped your club from saying they have 12 premierships.
He and the Richmond team have put a dent in your clubs history, and if Richmond meet Geelong in September, after the antics pulled the last few times, there's a receipt waiting for Stewart, Danger and the rest of the club.
Might not win, but you won't be getting through unscathed.
Theyll wave around a percentage to show people how successful they are.At Geelong its different
Near enough is good enough

You'd rather be Hawthorn than Geelong, yeah, they're down atm, but they had their era, won all the gold and now they're rebuilding again.
Geelong are the front runners right now, but they're always the front runners this time of year. Then they play someone in the qualifying final, arm wrestle for a half, then the other team powers away and the supporters once again begin to melt on BigFooty and twittered and they're 'surprised' by what has unfolded.
When you get 9 gift games in your own exclusive home ground, the AFL Ladder is a mirage, it's better than the really seems. In September every corrects itself
Deep hahahahYou are lucky.
You got to watch Martin at his best, only shame was he dismantled your team, year after year, on his way to winning grand finals and winning normies for fun.
You won't be telling your grandkids about Joel Selwood, well you will try, but they won't care, they will want to hear about the greatest finals player in history, and you got a front row seat.
Blessed you are, and so are all of us, in this his era
I certainly want Geelong to win ahead ofThing is,
I am actually barracking for Geelong this year
I mean, we don't want the pies to win it.
Problem is, the cats always go to water when the heat is really on, and the pies play like we do.
I have zero confidence that these all Australian home and away champions can stand up when it really matters, I mean they never do that's the problem
Its because at Geelong, near enough has always been good enough.
That's why it is not a rivalryI certainly want Geelong to win ahead of
Carlton - atrocious
Brisbane - could you imagine Robbo with a premiership medal
Melbourne - they'll pass us on 14 premierships !
Only Sydney and Fremantle are better options than Geelong. These single digit premiership winners don't alter Richmond's standing in premiership winning history.
Cant wait to hear about the 73.2836372% winrate thou
That's true in all cases except when you are talking about Dustin Martin
The dank curse? Which is what? If you legally ask someone to supply you with a legal supplement and don’t get it from them anyway and then disclose this to the AFL you will win three flags and make finals 15 out of 16 seasons?
Yeah no I’m sure everyone is tying themselves in knots over it.
