    Probably not out of context so much as in the moment. Agree he shouldn't be convicted on the strength of one comment that he probably will regret making.

    Much as I do not rate him as a coach. Leppa was here before Fagan/Noble. We were a circus of a club at that time.

    He is obviously a very proud man, i can understand if he is still a bit sore towards us (Leppa didn't get a Noble type appointment). I probably would be too in the short term.

    I probably am in the minority, but i think if he had his time over he would have used a different word. Talking on live TV can result in some misspoken words.

    I saw it last night, and wasn't sure whether he was calling us a rabble, or noting that it's more difficult somewhere like Brisbane (which it obviously is).

    Certainly could've been taken either way. Regardless though, he moved on quickly, and didn't try to dig in the boot, so even if it was insulting, I don't think it was malice -- I think it would've been a brief spot of honesty while he was trying to formulate a diplomatic response (he was put on the spot, didn't know he was going to be interviewed, and then asked live on TV to contrast his current and former employers - can understand it taking a few seconds to figure out a way to pump up your current club without belittling the former).

    I'm happy to give Leppa the benefit of the doubt on it.

    I thought it was a bit telling. Could have said "aw a bit more fun this year, haha" but instinctively took a little pot shot. Not super classy IMO.

    He said Richmond & the you know it is in reference to BT having played at the Club.
    Paranoid & hard of hearing.

    Yep, didn't respond at all to anything BT said about Brisbane started talking about Tigers straight away.

    Just on those Leppa comments. Someone had a go at him on his Insta, to which he responded and Leppa confirmed the Circus to which he was referring was Richmond and I quote "I would never talk about my old club in a negative way"

    Just istened to it again - now I think leppa said Richmond. The questing was about the lions but i now think he didn't address the lions question at all, just talked about Richmond.

    Apologies leppa for my prior indignation.

    Not as far as I know. I first listened to it live and then later on I backed my T-Box (not exactly stateof-the art, I know) up to the point where the interview with Leppa occurred and played it again a number of times. I wasn't recording it (and anyway with the T-Box it's apparently not possible to export recordings) so I finally just recorded it from the tv screen onto a smartphone.

    Glad it is all moot then. Was very surprised!
    My old man is 75 years old so I'll just blame his hearing loss!!

    Yes, I've been and viewed that quite a few times, and have to admit it does seem that he says Richmond.....although one could be forgiven in believing it was Brisbane.....very close in the sounding, strange but true. The first two times I saw it I still thought he said Brisbane, but kept watching thinking why do people hear Richmond.

    ..I did eventually too.

    My apologies one and all.

    I've watched it 20 times, and I'm convinced he says "Geelong are shit".

    It is a rather oddly Brisbane-sounding Richmond, yeah. But a Richmond all the same :)
