    Considering the game played out almost identically to the 2 times we played them in the season, not really.

    That would be the bloke who presented the cup to the winners while about 60,000 people chanted his name. I reckon he knows what success is.

    If that's his idea of success then ok, he can have that.

    It's the closest Bucks will ever get to being on a premiership dias.

    Not sure of the point you are trying to make here. You do realise that injuries are part & parcel of an AFL season!! Some teams are crippled by them & some have a dream run. We had the dream run & capitalised on it. It all depends on how a club reacts to the cards they have been dealt or are you too immature to see this???

    The moment you start picking spelling mistakes is a sign of defeat my friend.

    I suppose winning back to back in 1920-1921 after the war is more relevant than winning them during the war.

    But hey, your club tells you black and white are colours when they're indeed shades, so your entire club has NFI haha

    Ok. I'm not sure what Richmond supporters' obsession is with Nathan Buckley and premierships. He's still one of the best players of the modern era.

    And how sad have you made your dad all these years supporting the enemy? Couldn't you have just supported St.Kilda or something.

    You must of been a rebellious kid back in the 60s

    So is Richo.

    Difference is Richo is Richmond and Buckley is the Collingwood Bears.

    I chose my team before he chose his. I wasn't much of anything back in the 60s. That was his time to shine.

    Your dad sounds like a good man. I'm glad he got to see some success.

    Let him know Helen D'amico was the 35 year curse and the birth of the messiahs (Richo's) first child lifted the curse. Lol

    In all honesty, it's just fun and easy to point out the irony.

    Treloar following in his footsteps puts it in the spotlight again.

    And lastly, maybe there's a little truth to it? Buckley always impresses me with his football knowledge when he speaks, but if I was working for him, I'd feel like he's as thick as a plank of wood emotionally. He strikes me as someone who is all about high performance, do your job, work harder, stop fooling around, work harder, don't smile put your head down, and don't talk about your feelings, etc.

    Total opposite aura to Damien Hardwick, who is cracking gags before the Grand Final and telling his players he loves them and wants them to play like they're kids again.

    Yeah, but you shouldn't ignore people. It's not nice and can lead to feelings of isolation. Take it from me ignorance is no excuse.

    Are you ignoring me again?!
