    I hate every single one of them born after 1993. They have crashed the quality of the game into a netball competition

    Odd call, he didn't do much but he didn't have the anti Midas touch by any means.

    Joel Wilkenson, didn't have a clue out on the pitch. Athletic beast but no idea how to get the pill or what to do with it.

    Held Dunstall goalless once and played a pretty good game up forward in the 95 semi can't have been all that bad

    Truthfully, he wasn't that bad. But he was Richmond's #1 FB for a good chunk of the '90s and was just so, so ordinary during that time (a lot like young Schoenmakers was at times the #1 FB for the Hawks during that period between Croad retiring, and before Lake - which also saw weird experiments like Roughead in defence for full games as opposed to just using him as a swingman). I used to see Richmond do the same with Richardson running back to shore up their defence, and despite Richo being a brilliant forward (with his only knock being the jitters he sometimes got when kicking set shots), when it came to applying pressure and field-kicking, he was consistently so-so.

    The funniest thing about Turner though is he was an on-field leader, but his ideas and directions were usually pretty horrible. Which I think was a product of Richmond's team at the time being pretty limited in leaders in the backline. Can't knock Turner's effort, of course. I remember the Tiger's midfield being their greatest asset at the time.
