Oh boy, Mark Robinson puts Richmond's loss to Sydney down to the brilliance of Sydney's young players. He puts Port's 37 point loss in the west down to Port's big heads.

Robinson is on the money when he says our loss was down to a non existent mid field and maybe too many tall forwards but big heads? The taint of Victorian bias is always there with Robinson.
Yeah ridiculous. Probably a bigger slag on Wet Toast than us.

I mean yes the pathetic diving and staging of Schuey and Ryan tainted it, but that aside Wet Toast was brilliant in that first half last week.

I mean, 3 out of 4 flags buys you the ability to have down days. We have achieved three fifths of stuff all so yeh, it was our big heads.
You are only as good as your last game and the last three season should not come into it. I do not think we have big heads I think we were outplayed where it counted. Are you saying if we win this week it will be despite our big heads?

The fickleness of some supporters is amazing lose one game and we are a bunch of big heads. Don't we have enough problems with media slagging us off without having our own supporters joining the chorus?

We clearly read our own press and rocked up thinking it would just happen. From the coaches selecting a 4 tall squad for the very first time in a clutch game down to the players visible efforts, it was all ego. You don't get jumped like that if you're hungry for the contest.

Am I saying its going to dictate our season? No, its one game. But that game in isolation was purely down to big heads.

As much as I dislike the Chief Football Wino of the Herald Sun and the whole Vic bias, the fact is that Richmond have plenty of runs on the board and come good in September.

We haven't earned any right to be big-headed.

Well West Coast won off all their old campaigners smashing us, so he couldn't rave about their youngsters. They're probably bottom 4 for youngsters across the league. No consolation as our regular bullies beat us up as usual whilst still playing.

Yes, there's Victorian bias, but a midfield that just thought it would happen (and a coach who won't change anything whilst it could still matter) is big heads at work.

Wow... so now its big headed to pick the 4 tall squad. Which we picked against a side that has regularly been playing large numbers of tall players.

Not sure where to put this, but as it relates to digital media I'm putting it here. Not sure how I was cc'd in this twitter exchange but it caught my eye as it was posted by the Crows Digital media strategy guy reposting on twitter a mildly abusive DM he received from someone.

Now you don't have to be Einstein to work out that every media person from every club gets their fair share of abusive retorts on their official social media accounts from idiot opposition fans. But what gets me is why this guy thought it was in any way helpful to repost this particular tweet to his audience. Of course, this one just happens to tar the cross town rivals which is what got my goat.

Surely the smart thing to do is to ignore rather than share?

Well, in the aftermath of the loss our captain did come out and say the group had planned to go 22-0 this season, so there is a fairly decent chance they got ahead of themselves a touch.
"better than the 04 side" also springs to mind. Until we actually accomplish something worthwhile, it probably wouldn't hurt those within the club to let the footy do the talking for a sustained period.

Pretty rich given their previous social media team’s policy of trolling Port at every opportunity and then blocking people who return mild fire.

The Crows twitter admin a few years ago said "Port Adelaide are dead in the SANFL, It's Port Power reserves", and I got blocked for calling them unprofessional.

Be better crows. Be better.

Meh probably fake anyway (or at least there is context we aren't seeing). Most victim-style stories on the internet seem to be fake when you do even a little bit of digging.

You realise that the Adelaide Mail is a satirical website so laughing is the desired response.

Not only is that guernsey mocked up in MS Paint but the "CROMRY" logo may have been a bit of a give away.

What did the club do to Dwayne Russell for him to hate them so much these days... ? His commentary against us , the prison bars bullshit (in some ways supporting Eddie's comments at times ) ,ontop of his comments on SEN today that Robbie Gray deliberately rushed the ball through the behinds "there wasn't enough pressure on him" 🙄😂and that he'd pay a free against him everyday ? Does the guy not know the rules? Maybe it's because he does talk back in Melbourne to whinging Richmond fans and he's desperate to appear impartial? Whatever the reason , it's weird.. it's hard enough listening to brain injured Ricciuto during our games let alone this guy.
