Thats pretty much the same thing "fortuitous" might seem like a clever way to word it.No. I haven't seen anyone say that.
I personally have said that probability dictates Richmond were fortuitous to win 3 flags in 4 seasons, given their lack of dominance throughout the years of their premierships.
Not dissimilar to Hawthorn 2013 to 2015. Though they had 2012 as a near miss as well.
Fortuitous means lucky, or more accurately "happening by chance rather than intention", you reckon they didnt intend to win the flags? Gale famously stated that was their intention in his 10 year plan speech.
