    That we won't win the 2019 flag.

    Premierships are hard to win yes. But what are these people saying? Compared to who? Are they ruling out Geelong with some other club in mind as better? They are all shit.

    Geelong are the only consistently good club in the comp. Some other club will probably have an amazing year and go back to being shit the following year. But you can't pick who that club is yet.

    Pretty subtle post, but that is just clearly taking the piss.

    I honestly can't pick who will be up there next year. Other than Geelong. Richmond and West Coast are pretty good bets. But they've only been up there for 2 years. People tipped Adelaide and Port to be up there. People tipped bulldogs in 2017. Its far too superficial and incorrect. The most primitive logic. The only one I've seen likely to be up there next year is Geelong.

    Not enough praise for Melbourne when they win, that is just wrong. I thought you had won the flag last year, however it was a semi final.

    Well, there should be.

    But then, I get the impression that most music fans don't care if musicians drop dead because of drug use, as long as they can still listen to their music.

    I mention the music industry because of how people say that sportspeople have to be "role models" because they are paid a lot, yet musicians and actors make as much or more, and no-one holds them to being role models.

    The whole "role model" thing is bullshit anyway. I pay to see a player play footy, not to determine if they are a nice guy or not. Parents are meant to be role models for their kids, not sporting heroes.

    Coming from a supporter of a team with a great list, yet missed finals this year.

    Geelong were dead average this year. If the Cats do play finals in 2019, it'll be because they've learnt, adapted, and thrived with a new game plan. The 2018 Geelong FC is not getting anywhere near a flag.

    You were the Vics first look at footy passion outside of Victoria and they couldn't understand it as they believed they had the mortgage on it, as you were louder it must have been for 'reasons'.
    That stuck.

    That we all drive Range rovers and go to Mt Buller.

    I drive an Audi and visit the French Alps every January.

    Hate being called the biggest club in the land by every person in the media. I like flying under the radar.

    I'm saying that an Essendon supporter, who barracks for druggies, is the last person to talk smack about other teams.

    You haven't even won a final since the early 2000's.

    Not the club as a whole , but, the pres , Eddie . Yeah he has his own opinions but A lot of the time some of them are right on the money .
    Have never heard an opposition supporter say they like him or can tolerate him. He is actually a bloody good bloke and extremely hard worker ., that’s how his got to where he is right now .

    I dont think that's entirely true. As president he's a very effective advocate for his club, and deserves respect. That's his job.

    I've had reason to look into the way player misbehaviour has been managed under his leadership with guys like Heater and Keefe. Taking ownership and confronting the problem without disowning the players is the right path in my view, again respect.

    As a commentator though, no respect at all. He was on FTA for the Brisbane game last year and was gloating over the Cameron-Andrews incident.

    Feelings were so inflamed that our staff member Alson Zell had to leave the press box because of the comments being made. Not directly his but he was inciting it like Allan Jones during the Cronulla riots.

    Leon commented on AFL officials disgraceful comments post match and that was who he was referring to. We get he doesn't like us but there are limits. The incident was always going to be addressed by the judiciary and was.

    That Richmond have had no injuries over the last two years, or if Richmond have had injuries they had been in no way comparable to anyone else's injuries. Moreover, that when (not if) we do have actual injuries or at the very least injuries comparable to any other club, we will undoubtedly crash in a burning heap. And then everyone will say "see they only won the 2017 premiership because they had no injuries".
