    Richo could have left to play in premierships. Buckley did, but didn't, but could have stayed to play in premierships. What a great team man he was.

    Lot of anger in this thread. It seems perfectly reasonable to me a club that had a poor 2016 would target finals in 2017 on the way back up.

    Having achieved that they found themselves with an opportunity to win a flag. These opportunities dont come very often and you have to sieze them.
    All year they were scorned as a team that would fold when the pressure was applied, and couldn't win finals. Turned out they could.

    Three dominant wins was a brilliant effort after a home and away season that left them in third position. It was no fluke and shouldn't really have been a surprise.

    We undoubtedly targeted making finals in 2016 and Dave Matthews said so publicly, it wasn't controversial because in the end we couldn't sieze the opportunity that finishing 4th gave us.

    Incorrect. Most clubs own their licence, it's just that the AFL has the power to revoke them. The AFL owns, however, the Sydney Swans, Brisbane, GCS and GWS.

    Goodes was a flopper, just like Rance. Worse than Rance.

    Haha this is my favourite line of yours in the last few pages of this thread, because it's just SO irrelevant now!

    Years since Sydney won a premiership? 5.

    Years since Richmond won a premiership? Can't measure it in years, it's more appropriate to measure it in DAYS, of which it's been 7!

    Like it or not, we're untouchable until the start of next season mate, because we're the reigning, defending, undisputed, PREMIERS of the AFL. :cool::thumbsu:

    Everytime I see your name I think, theres the guy that said Dusty was a 100% lock to go to North and is now super salty towards Richmond. lmao.

    Lmao. Each comment from you gets funnier. I cant tell if its denial or you're really this dumb.

    If that was the case we wouldnt have won all 3 finals by 6+ goals.

    Amazing how injuries didnt effect the opposition until they played us. Adelaide smashed Cats with McGovern and Otten out, but then they play us and suddenly they re so effected by those injuries.
