His article in the paper today was a good one. Very complementary & Very unusual coming from him.
He loves mentioning Collingwood ‘humiliated’ us last year,
He must’ve been pissed
A West Coast vs Collingwood Grand Final would be a redemption story for Collingwood.

But it sounds like he’s writing towards a Richmond vs Collingwood GF where it’ll be Richmond’s redemption story.

In that case, the story will be that Richmond really were the best team of the past 3 years. Afterwards, all the praise will come, including full comparisons to Geelong 2007/2011 etc. From that moment on, there will only be 2 stories left to tell about this Richmond team:

1. How great are they compared to the all-time great teams?
2. Has their era ended?

There’s no money to be made by praising Richmond before the Grand Final.

“I think Richmond is the best”
...Then Richmond win

Vs

“Collingwood humiliated Richmond last year, they can’t overcome those demons”
...Then Richmond win

Opinions have mostly been one of "I don't think they can win" or "It's their flag to lose", with a lot of vacillating and very little middle ground.

Robbo ******' hates us. Not so much the club, but the fans.

Collingwood DID humiliate last year in the PF. That’s why it’ll be nice to humiliate them in a GF this year.

Full of excuses I bet.

Given what's happened with Danny Frawley today and that he was a big part of the Fox Footy team I'm wondering if any of the shows will go ahead tonight. A lot of those guys would have been very close to him.

Some really touching moments on Fox tonight. Was all very moving then Mark Robinson had to go and emphasize the time that germ spat on Danny. ... they even showed the clip.
Him and whoever produces the show have zero sense of the moment!
It's supposed to be a tribute and he should have left that for rag he writes for!

Yeah a time and a place. Have a little compassion for that "germ" as well. Stupid thing he did however he's probably feeling a little **** himself at the moment.

That's what I was thinking. Lyon's not on OTC because of this. I wonder how Dunstall feels, but I must say, even though Bounce I never liked and is more for the kids, I watched the show a few times after the last Sunday AFL game and never liked Dunstall constant smart-arse attitude (bullying?) on Spud. I wonder if that played a part in his depression.

I don't thinks so. I think they were quite close and it was all part of the entertainment.

I just noticed Spud's comments just a few weeks ago on Dunstall calling him a no-hoper or something like that, which looking at Spud's expression, somehow looked like it hit him a bit hard, as he kept on questioning Dunstall "why did you call me that?"

Poosy was impressed with Brisbane's early game than our overall win. Work that one out somehow.

It was the way he worded it that annoyed me ,

He said when he was coaching Richmond they spat on him,

They , plural , like more than one person , or more than one incident

Robbo revealed his true feelings tonight when he said "why does bloody Richmond have all the fast" either players or forwards after that.

"bloody Richmond" glad to see we **** him off that much

That's just disgustingly tasteless by Blobbo and I don't even have Foxtel. But, at this tragic time, to highlight that and use it to launch more invective at RFC and all its supporters is beneath low. I can only say - Blobbo, your mental health needs attention too. You are warped and twisted. Seek counselling urgently.

As dark as 2004 was - and it was obvious even then that Frawley was on the way out, with Richmond on the bottom - nobody ever defended or justified the spitter.

I can think of a dozen more enduring moments from Frawley's time as coach, let alone his more successful playing and media careers. But Robbo opportunistically ensured its persistence in the Richmond mythology.

The spitter, who hailed from Brisbane, would be 38. Wonder whether he was at Saturday's game, and how he feels now?
