    It now needs to be asked whether Tyrone Vickery would be regretting his decision to leave Richmond.

    He could have stayed at Richmond and been part of a historic premiership, instead he opted to leave the club for more money and is now plying his trade at Box Hill.

    Do you think that Vickery is regretting his decision?

    I think if he stayed at Richmond they'd probably have come 9th and Hawthorn would be premiers.

    Deledio would be regretting it more. No guarantees Vickery would get a game at Richmond anyway.

    His timing leaving Richmond has been Ablett-esque.

    Might as well ask if some third rate player Hawthorn delisted at the end of 2012 has any regrets.

    Deledio (as much as I still love him) and Vickery would not get a gig in our current side anyway.

    If Deledio can regain fitness and have a good pre-season he can still get that flag he wants.

    Vickery has a LOT of improving to do and he's 27 years old.

    Ablett had already played in two premierships when he left us though.

    Vickery is rubbish. When at Richmond he was responsible for them underachieving.
    As soon as he left, they won the flag.

    I'd love to criticise ol' Ty but fear Jake King turning up on my doorstep.

    Even if Vickery got a game ( I don't think he would have), the Richmond forward line structure wouldn't have been as effective, so they mightn't have even got to the GF.

    I reckon guys like Matthew Richardson, Kevin Bartlett and Jake King regret retiring. If only they stayed a bit longer they could've been part of this premiership.

    Deledio came in to GWS' team at about the same time as Townsend came in to Richmond's side and kept his spot. Had both been available to Richmond I think Deledio gets picked and holds his spot the whole way through.

    Griffiths and Vickery could've spilt the 2nd ruck/forward job all year if the Tigers never pulled the trigger on making Grigg the 2nd ruck.

    But if that was the case there's about 1000 over hypotheticals you could worry about.

    Agree with this. Vickery never had the tank, and Lids didn't have the fitness this year. They wouldn't have been able to do their jobs in September.

    Mock him all you like, but Jake King was the prototype for the new, successful Richmond.
