For those who have read "stronger & bolder", he talks about being mentally exhausted as he didn't have a break during the yr & instead put his head down to make a comeback etc. could it be he just needed a mental break & retired to take the pressure right off? As if he just took leave for "mental health etc" there'd be questions from the media all season re: coming back etc.
Could it even be he only wants to play half a season & not the full grind?

Hate these rumours and whispers. Just keep the haters and muckrakers out there busy and focused on Rance and RFC.

But the problem for us is that we do live in hope. The club has officially left the door open but keeping his contract on the books and him on the player list. That's a rare thing when a player announces a retirement. There must be a chance, better than that he's coming back.

So we're gonna dominate next year with Marlion Pickett the brownlow favourite and Tom Lynch leading the coleman by 20 goals come rd 20 and we announce Rances return for the finals and everyone cries it's not fair.

FeraldSun to have a special 16 page lift-out on the unfairness of Richmond's 3 Premierships with demands to the AFL to change the laws again to stop Richmond being so unfair.

The reason he's still on the books is because he retired after final list lodgement & his payments (if applicable after retiring) count towards this yrs salary cap.

As did Grigg last year but he was taken off the list.

What about those rumours?
I thought the players had him kicked out and refuse to talk to him?
