    If you rightly lost Cotchin and Ellis at the MRP, some modicum of credibility would have returned to the result whichever way it turned out.

    If you lost Cotchin and say Jack Riewoldt for the finals, I would conclude that it didn't really contribute to your loss against GWS in the prelim (and believe me, you would have lost), as they had Mumford, Cameron and Smith missing.

    Every expansion club that entered into the AFL from 1987 (West Coast & Brisbane Bears) knew when they entered the comp that the GF was played at the MCG. Did it stop West Coast in 92 & 94, did it stop the Crows in 97 & 98, or Brisbane in 01, 02 or 03 or Syd ney in 05 & 12??? The answer to all of these questions is a resounding NO. The MCG is contracted to hold it until 2040. If you don't like it, find another sport to follow.

    Oh you are a sad sack of sh!t. You follow the AFL's version of Siberia (we all know where it is but nobody wants to go there) your future has nothing to get excited about and you have the biggest chip on your shoulder. Follow another sport, but this time choose a club that might give you something to be happy about.

    Let it go Snake_Baker

    You are either in, or starting, every salty anti-Richmond thread, whining and complaining about everything from the Grand Final, to Cotchin, to umpiring, to Dusty, to anything that you can possibly think of that is yellow and black.

    You've been at it seemingly non-stop since you missed out on Dusty, and at this point, you are probably the saltiest supporter on this forum, and your fascination with Richmond is borderline obsession.

    It's time to step away from the keyboard and take a few deep breaths man. These are the facts:

    - Richmond retained Dustin Martin despite offering less money than North.
    - Richmond won all finals they played in this year, by an average of 45 points.
    - Richmond are the reigning premiers, and will continue to be no matter how much you whinge or complain.
    - North Melbourne finished in the Bottom 4 and missed out on all their key targets this off-season.
    - North Melbourne and Richmond are on literally the exact opposite of the success spectrum at the moment.
    - In 2017, Richmond succeeded in every possible way, and North Melbourne failed in every possible way.

    Deal with it, and just let it go, for your own mental health. Or don't, and continue making a fool of yourself. Your choice mate.

    Yep. Ablett out for the Suns, Hodge for Hawthorn, Selwood/Duncan/Hawkins for Geelong, then Selwood sore for the final, Cameron/Mumford for GWS and Smith/McGovern for the Crows.

    Planets aligned. Magical.

    Richmond supporters win one flag and think their players are up with the greats of the game.

    LOL before now it was "win a flag then talk" now its "lol you only won one flag"

    oh and no, Richmond supporters did not win a flag.. Richmond the team won the flag, we weren't out there playing, we were just out there cheering.

    Wrong thread.
    This one is about how incompetent their admin is by winning a flag.

    You are so wrong there. Only Dusty & Rance are or will be greats of the game. The rest, we are hoping will be remembered as part of a great team.

    It's pretty simple mate - Snake_Baker put it out there but has largely been proven wrong. Yet having already put a stake in the ground he could either:

    1) Show some humility and balls and say 'I was wrong' which would actually gain some respect since we all are from time to time; or
    2) Do what the majority do and continue to defend their position irrespective of what the facts are

    Selwood dives... but it doesn;t make him any less of a gun.

    anyway i'm not giving your fishing attempt the benefit of the doubt any longer.

    Imagine if they aimed for a premiership instead of merely competing.

    That comment shows you know absolutely nothing about the game. At first I thought you were a moron, now you've removed all doubt.

    If you want to see a major choke, once again watch your semi final. You don't listen.
