    Why?

    It's hard for Richmond to feel complacent when they're getting called the worst premiership team of all time.

    More likely to go back to back than to miss finals.

    Richo has achieved something Buckley or Adam Treloar can never aspire to - He was a ONE CLUB only player.

    Oh yes that's the pinnacle of a player's value. At least he holds the holy grail of having kicked the most goals at the MCG, which coincidentally only one supporter base seems to care about.

    Brownlow? Nah. Norm Smith? Nah. Close in All-Australians? Nah, Bucks is 2.5x superior. How about club best-and-fairests? Richo played in a rubbish side for most of his career, surely he used the best of his ability to clean them up? Nah, just the one; Buckley won six in a side that played finals and made a grand final.

    I reckon I know who's better.

    Loyalty means nothing to you I guess. Are you suffering from attention defecit syndrome? Your club is in a downward spriral and here you are trolling the premiership team.

    Congratulations on your 11th premiership - Collingwood achieved that in 1937

    Voss was slightly superior on the day, none of this "by far" trash. The worst Norm Smith Medal winner is an amazing achievement no matter what way you twist it, and it belongs to Cyril Rioli anyway.

    Buckley carried a team to successive grand finals on his shoulders - one of the finest players of the modern era whether you like it or not.

    What game were you watching?
    He lost in the hitouts but he's not expected to win the hitouts but he beat Jacobs around the ground which is his main role.

    One club player doesn’t describe Richo. Richo is not heavily associated with Richmond, he IS Richmond.
    The bloke is the closest thing to a living saint. Clearly imperfect but a miracle worker. His greatest miracle being single handedly attracting people to games for years. For a long time Richmond supporters did not expect Richmond to ever win, we went to the footy to watch Richo.

    You'll be a neutral supporter come finals time for many years going forward I'd say.

    The odds are that the Tiges will return to what they know also. List management and Hardwick will impose themselves enough for desperation and luck to take a back seat.
