The Gabba is the same size as the G. Suits us fine. Ratogolea saved Geelong from a 10 goal loss against us recently. He won’t be playing it seems. I’ll back our pressure game 100%. Danger and Geelong struggle with it

You guys owned them in that last game and kept them to 1 goal to 3 quarter time. It it will take some performance to beat Richmond system

Thank you.

I feel like some of these posters that say they can’t enjoy watching the current Richmond style of play are feeling sentimental for a style of play that was superseded years ago.

The Richmond style is chaotic but to me it is more fun to watch than the slower game plans that put a great emphasis on maintaining possession.

And I’m not just saying that because I barrack for Richmond, I like it when other teams play a fast instinctive sort of football, too.

For me, win, lose or draw, watching Shane Edwards = happiness.
Shai Bolton and Edwards are delightful players to watch. They are highly skilled, Bolton in particular can kick goals and has supreme vision. Richmond will take some beating

2010, 36,00.....2020.....100,000 .....bandwagoners.
Name a side that hasn't increased since 2010, and name a side who doesn't increase after a flag?
The Richmond "bandwagon" rubbish is just a myth by salty jealous opposition supporters.

Eagles 2010, 44,000..... 2019, pre flag and Optus access, 90,000.... 2020, 100,000, two team town post flag, needing access to Optus stadium.... bandwagoners?

Yes for sure. Tigers game is v hard to crack and they deserve favouritism
Having said that i think we are advantaged by the game being at the Gabba instead of the MCG.
I give us an even chance
gabba is the opposite to kardinia. It’s the same size as the G but even wider. We’ve lost there once in 15 years. Think we’ll have more room to run

So either Martin, Riewoldt, Cotchin and co become triple premiership players or Dangerfield's chest will be puffed out even further than what it already is for the next twelve months?

Can't they both lose?
you saying martin doesnt deserve 3 flags? if we win theres a high chance he wins the norm smith and probably the gary aeyres(?) medal too, and with 3 norm smiths and 3 of the gary medal, theres a good objective argument that he's the best finals player theres ever been. you cant begrudge a player of that quality success. especially since for the last 6 or so years hes been totally clean off field, and doesnt have the smug arrogance of players like dangerfield to hate.
