Really don't like the idea of dropping Broad, he competes week in week out and isn't often beaten. Easy to jump on a player after one mediocre game - and it wasn't even medicore cause he was playing up forward and in the ruck and did as well as could be expected there.
I had him in my votes. I'm not sure what people are complaining about. We really couldn't have asked much more of Broady. Sacrificed his game for team needs

Just because a bit of friendly wisdom/advice/rules from a MOD starts with "Guys" doesn't mean you ladies aren't included. Even though it seems like that.

Just being the operative word.
I say guys to mean everyone.

Agreed.
Nank is a tough bastard who always gives a contest but knows his craft and where to position himself around the ground.
Shame he is injured, been playing well this year.

Its been interesting that Richmond have not acquired an elite ruck in recent years.
I remember the days of dominant Richmond rucks like the General tapping it down to the Flea and the opposition would get no respite as you would have Cloke coming on as second ruck doing the bullocking work and wearing them down.

No chance on Grundy obviously. He's a beauty isn't he?... and with his ground handling skills is well suited to the new 6-6-6 rule in AFL.
(oops - edit - note to self - must stop the 'isn't he' questioning - dont want to sound like Bruuce.)
Those were the days heh heh.

Love this team though. The real deal. Tigerish.

Yup but at the end of the day he's a big lumbering ruck who shouldn't expose Soldo too much running forward like a Grundy/Stanley potentially could.
We struggled with our long kicks down the line from defence after Nankervis went off last week. Hawthorn could expose us more in this area. Ivan has to draw McEvoy away so we have an avenue out of defence or ensure McEvoy is not able to mark our long kicks and the ball at least gets to ground.

I realise that. I respect you're not being intentionally sexist.
I just don't think everyone does realise.

It's more the kind of casual sexism we all fall into because always.

My wife and daughter are both Tigers in this forum. I encouraged them to join.

Perhaps just drop the "Guys" altogether. It's a s*** word if you actually mean everybody.

Wow what has this thread degenerated into.

These days guy is an inclusive term. I’m perfectly ok with NaturalDisaster using this term when talking to everyone.

It’s nowhere near as long as everybody or ladies and gentlemen.

It’s like you lot are just looking for an excuse to be pissed off at the moderators these days.

Nothing wrong with at all plain and simple . People use it all the time , women use it , men use it , lol people just like to get outraged over anything these days .
Certainly not outraged over the use of 'guys' use as a plural noun other than i think YeOldTiger raised a valid point concerning his family members...
Like i previously posted personally i think it's casual/lazy thinking in this day and age...and i sympathize with YeOldTiger's post!

I get where he and you are coming from. However I do think it should have been bought up in a more private setting.

YeOldTiger or their family could have easily mentioned to NaturalDisaster in a private message that they found the term offensive, if they did.

I promise you, ND and the other mods are perfectly approachable and absolutely lovely people.
