He was on the board and stop making up stuff.
He was on the football sub committee. READ the article YOU posted.

You are quite defensive. Ok blame Bolton’s non-recruitment on Lloyd (he wasn’t there anyway) if that makes you feel better. Bell was there in transition before officially announced.

Whatever makes you feel better though bud. You sure are passionate about who not to blame in the Freo/Bolton recruitment farce.

BTW, who have you credited for the Conca acquisition?

These things get done months before trade period (generally). Would be surprised if Bell was involved in the Conca pick-up

Besides all this strawman stuff, Why would a player cut off a club just because previous interest never went through? Especially a young player still trying to actually make it?

Self Interest is the best horse in the race and the more suitors and options, the bigger the prize.

"Hey Shai, do you want to stay at the best club in the country and play with your mates in a premiership contender, or go to Freo?"

LMAO.

Carr will try to milk as much from us as he can, a happy medium will be found, and Shai will sign a two-year deal. Try again in 2021.

Not to mention being the best performed.
Lobb and Hogan both had better games and were more important for structure. Conca has been consistently good, never great and never bad (save for one brain dead moment in the first derby). He’s done exactly as required and not gotten injured. I suppose there is some argument for best performed but not best player.

Bolton is expected to sign hey? Would imagine if it came to it, our second should be a relatively easy swap. Still is more potential then proven at this point

If he's getting a game you wouldn't leave the Tigers unless the money was significantly better. If that's the case we trade him for overs and get a good return. Nobody is throwing big money at a player and then not trading with the club to get it done. Nobody that valued "walks to the PSD" either these days.

We'll keep him for a reasonable and fair price or wel get something decent in a trade if he's valued highly enough for good coin by another club.

Doubt that. Richmond will be definitely asking for more than a pick similar to what was used on him 3 years ago. Just remember Cerra is crazy mad richmond and would not take too much convincing from Martin,Cotchin,Rance,Riewoldt,Lynch and Mrs Cerra

So from being pick 29 on potential, to having that potential proven sufficiently to get a regular spot in a top team, with plenty of upside still to go, you think he's now worth a pick around 25?

Unless this is a MASSIVELY stronger draft, you're dreaming. He'd be worth around that if he had no further improvement left in him.

Langdon is playing better most weeks and it’s what I’d expect for him. Uncontracted and non-stars will struggle to go for a first, or is Bolton a lot better than Langdon in your eyes?

The arrogance of Richmond supporters knows no boundaries

Crazy how big some of your heads have become in the last couple of years, as if you've been a powerhouse for decades like Hawks, Geelong, Sydney, West Coast, etc. Never forget where you came from

I'd call them similar currently, maybe Langdon slightly ahead, but Bolton is 3 years younger and has far more upside & X-factor, so yes, I'd have Bolton at a higher trade value.

Or to put it another way, Bolton could be a star in a few years, Langdon wont.

Keep livin' in the past, pal. (We've got 11 premierships in the past.)

I think you've forgotten where you come from.



How's Conca going? We'll see if we can throw you another one of our cast-offs this year. Jacob Townsend and Dan Butler are premiership players, they could tell your boys all about it.

Eh the reply was probably OTT but VFL premierships really should count for diddly squat whether the Vics like to admit it or not
