Yep we will be pillaged.

Then once our run at the top expires we go and pinch them back :))

Might be some available talent for 2022 going forward, if the soft cap is raised again.

Before us it happened to Hawthorn and before them Geelong and before them Brisbane. Price of success.
Been standard procedure at VFL / AFL level since before I was in nappies. Opposition clubs spend more time, energy n money on trying to tear back down successful clubs, than they spend on actually trying to find ways to become successful themselves.
They all sit watching n lurking to see if anyone tries to sneak up ahead of them, rarely bothering to try anything new or innovative to give themselves an edge over the opposition and a genuine chance at being the best.

It appears the club's fiscal policy is well under way... We're looking at saving a lot more than $100,000 on the soft cap at this rate

Price of success is high.
The way we are going there will be only Dimma left soon.
Does anyone have news of any likely appointments. ?
Or will we appoint within?

BigRicho might be free?
No new people.
Guys given extra jobs
Longegan, McQualter, Kingley and Clarke

A wonderful player but how is he as a coach?

The bloke is a star. Don't worry the shitt at Essendon. That job postion was always posioned from the start, no-one would've survived.
Matthew knights is the best person ive met in my time following Richmond since the late 70's. He would always say hello, he would stay back for a kick and would always let us in the rooms at interstate games.
I would have knighter back in a heart beat.
Knights, Keane, Richo, Flea are my all time favourites.

Geelong will start its AFL pre-season next week without experienced doctors Geoff Allen and Drew Slimmon, who both resigned from the club last week.

The Cats face the “extraordinarily difficult” task of replacing the seasoned sports medicos, while physiotherapists Mark Young and Hamish Macauley and head strength and conditioning coach Chris Dennis are also moving on.

Seems to be an exodus of AFL medical staff after 20% pay cuts.

Amply assisted by a sycophantic and sniveling media at times!

Sydney have pinched our strength and rehab coach Rob Inness to their high performance team.

losses are mounting up:

Fly
Leppa
Inness

:mad:
Don’t think that is a big loss.
Yes, played with Dimma, and is highly rated. Has he picked up another gig since leaving the Suns?
Thought he has stepped away and decided to concentrate on a gym he owns.

We were always going to lose some of our rehab and medical staff given the huge cuts to the soft cap we have to absorb. Likely a few more to come.
