    No, that was Victoria Police and the Courts that decided a young girls life was worth a $1500 fine.

    Why would he regret being traded to Box Hill?

    Vickery had some talent, particularly his set shot kicking, but he never wanted it badly enough.Top level football is not his game.

    In the off season he should go into Clarko office and negotiate some sort of settlement. Go become a lawyer, or what ever it he was studying at uni.

    If only Chris Mayne hadn't gone to Collingwood, he might have won a flag with Richmond.

    "Damn you Bucks and your 4 year deal!", is what Mayne could be heard shrieking.

    Such regret.

    Nah he wasn't best 22 and there was no big hole when he left. By the end of our 2016 season he was out of favour.

    "Vickery, 26, has played his last game for Richmond after a turbulent season that saw him dropped twice and overlooked in the final fortnight for fringe key position pair Todd Elton and Callum Moore."

    TV never worked on his talent.

    A grade football and physical talent

    Something else (attitude) must be why he didn't/hasn't make it.

    When on, something special. Just one game every month or two isn't worth it.


    Hope he pulls his finger out and plays quality footy for the Hawks. Like him. Just has to play hard aggressive football and run. Too casual.

    Don,t think he would have been on the ground at 2.30pm last Saturday any way.

    It's himself he needs to change not teams.

    If Vickery stayed he would've played all year due to injuries to KPP's, the mosquito fleet would've never happened, our forward pressure would've been rubbish, and we wouldn't have won the flag.

    All jokes aside, if Vickery stayed Richmond wouldn't have won the flag.

    I’ve seen Deledio have plenty 3 goal 30 possession game. Will be remembered as a Tigers great 20-30 years down the track

    If you ask me or 80% of Tigers supporters I’m sure Deledio would be rated above Jack Graham or Townsend. You have to agree?

    Rating as a player and ability to play a role are often confused.
    Unless Lids bought into the defensive mantra he would not have been better than Graham.
    Graham kicked 3 goals and then shut down Sloane who was on fire at the time.

    I doubt Lids could have done that.

    They would not have even made it let alone win it.

    The list of players making mega bucks because they are tall is long and not particularly distinguished. Ty, Tippett, Boyd, Jenkins, Clarke. One day clubs will figure it out

    As others have said, if Ty was still there we're probably still persisting with him in the seniors (and probably getting very little from him) and we don't win the flag.

    Deledio is a more complicated question, not sure whether he would've got a game for us or not in hindsight, but him not being there potentially saved us from a selection headache anyway.

    It's not Graham he would've replaced, it would've been Townsend as Townsend was the one being asked to play an accountable role in the air, which was always a strength of Lids.

    True, but you can't do it with no talls, and if you're doing it with just one, they need to be a very versatile player who can compete at ground level too. For example, Richmond couldn't have pulled this off with a player like Hawkins (or Vickery) as the sole tall.

    also, the economic theory of crowding out. Valid in Dangerfield and Adelaide, and Buddy at Hawthorn. Both were replaced by multiple other players who could not sneeze in their direction with respect to the talent gap. But the teams got materially better, by replacing them with inferior players, who were not exactly substitutes, but filled other roles. Lids could have been a similar phenomenon. *could.

    Mate Tyrone leaving is the reason Richmond won. Dimma should be giving his medal to Ty a la Beveridge.
