    It goes with the territory, don't let it bother you.

    Agree with the OP. It is an absolute disaster for the Richmond football club that they have retained the competition's best player at a market rate through the rest of his prime. Wait, what?

    This thread is dumb regardless, but if Richmond finish last every year from 18-24 if they win sat they won’t mind

    I must admit I've been worrying about this pending disaster all week.

    Some you win - some you lose. Vickery was a pick 8 - boy, did we stuff that up (could have had Ziebell, Phil Davis or Sidebottom - none are great (Davis kills Riewoldt most times) but all better than Ty.

    Then we managed to offload him to the Hawks - boy, did they stuff up. Their turn.

    We will no doubt stuff up again somewhere (shhhhhh, don't mention Yarran) - it's a game.

    Well there you go. Tigers really are rooted. May have to let Steven Morris go to fund Dusty's pay bump. Multiple wooden spoons await.

    Really it's best to not have any stars, they're too expensive. Want a nice even spread of average to poor players.

    What a pack of dumbos Richmond are. They paid top dollar to for a player who won a Brownlow, Norm Smith and their best and fairest in a premiership year.

    With that level of incompetence their premiership drought should last a few more decades.

    if Jake Lever is getting the money it has been reported, looks like we got dusty for a steal...

    We tried that for two decades. Not sure it's really the best strategy. :p

    Hahah. Exactly.

    Also, like the Franklin deal, it won't sound as big after a couple of years.

    It only takes one desperate club to throw 1.5 million at a solid A- player and then it starts...

    We just won the flag and not a single player on the list wants out. Stars all signed up on long term deals. Strong backfire.
