Time nearly up for cotch... lost a yard and can barely kick 40 metres.
We'll ignore the goal in the grand final from 50 and yes may have lost marginally a bit of pace as everyone does as they age but I reckon he has probably 2 good years ahead of him.
Are you sure you're not thinking of GAJ?

How so?

Cotchins tummy punching is up there with Stranton's pinching on Orazio scummy tactics
Everyone tummy punching until the AFL cracked down on it. He got away with a few no doubt, but in those days there was no penalty

and..
"It was the sixth time Fletcher had been reported for tripping. He is the only AFL player to be suspended for tripping by hand after serving one match for upending North Melbourne's Anthony Stevens in 2004."

Honestly Captain Chaos clearly doesnt know how to kick a ball

That was a 50 mtr stab pass and if Cotch was going for goal the ball would have travelled higher than 10 mtrs off the ground and absolutely no follow through in that kick where in a proper kick the follow through would be alot higher

Sigh... No midfielder has ever been described as an elite mid purely for what they do off the ball. It does not happen he is a brilliant player in the Richmond system but that does not make him elite.
If australian rules football, had a computer game the equivalent of 'football / championship manager' (association football simulation game)

in which the players 'attributes' are broken down into technical, psychical, mentality

the Cotchin stats on AFL manager 2020 would be something like:

Aggression 20 (out of 20)
Anticipation 19
Bravery 20
Composure 20
Concentration 19
Decisions 18
Determination 20
Flair 17
Leadership 20
Off the Ball 20
Positioning 19
Teamwork 20
Vision 18
Workrate 20

To me I think Richmond fans have massive blinkers on with Cotchin. It is really only Richmond fans who are saying Cotchin is elite, everyone else is saying he is a very good player but nothing more than that. Richmond have 2 elite players, and Cotchin is not one of them.
you have to account for the salt factor, the wounds are still fresh for many

4/5/10 years itll be different

Trent Voss Chimp Cotchin, mark my words

Then explain why opposition supporters freely admit Martin and Rance are elite? If us saying Cotchin is not elite was down to us not liking Richmond then surely that would mean we could not say Martin and Rance are elite as well?

It would be pretty hard to say Richmond has no elite players while reality's slapping you in the face with the premiership cup.
