I mentioned it on another thread , Fox Sports love to write negative articles on us this year ,

Have seen it in other codes, its a similar theme, they work out who the public want to perceive as the villains , and they pump the stories out for click bait attention and to activate the trolls on social media
Exactly Kiwi. Exactly.

SEN discussing Dylan Grimes.

Sam Edmunds - s he a serial stager that hasn't learnt his lesson?

Jordan Lewis - yes. Should have been cited. He's hurting his reputation.

WTF? This is borderline harassment. They should be embarrassed to talk about one of the more courageous players in the comp like this.

How is it staging when it was a 50m every day of the week and twice on Sunday? This is what drove me crazy about the Rance incident a couple of years ago. Yes he exaggerated contact, but it was still a free kick. How can you fine someone in that circumstance?

Let’s see if he highlights Diverfield as a serial stager, or Miers or Selwood? Naaahh, what was I thinking....

Agree. I'd suggest its laughable but its borderline abuse and no laughing matter.

Boring Lewis is a *smile*

new to the media so he quickly jumps on the richmond hate train

the only thing thats ruining Grimes' reputation is *smile* like Lewis and Cornes


Lewis seems that type of guy that shows up at a party and everyone else leaves.
Personality of a dead cat

I havent heard/read any of this, but I wonder why they are targeting Grimes? You couldnt target a nicer bloke than him who is as courageous as they come and plays the game at 200% intensity.

Just seems a very strange person to target when there are some well documented worse examples of stagers out there.

Grimes just had just about the best game of any defender in the comp all year.
This is nothing more than a pissweak attempt to take the focus off his amazing performance.

An aside to all this is watching Charlie Cameron continually stage for frees (watch his flapping arms) yet never get called on it.

If we play the lions week 1 of finals there can see a massive focus on Grimes tactics against Cameron. Nothing surer.

Morris, Cornhole and Lewis should be charged with Staging. They stage every time they try to impersonate a decent bloke. Everyone knows they are complete #$%^s though

Did they forget already Grimes received a death threat? Talk about adding fuel to the fire and undue victimisation...

Because he’s playing really well and hes a big part of our success. It’s not about the individual, it’s about the hatred of Richmond.

Spot on the media has been at us for most of the year. I saw Danger dive when Aarts barely touched him in the last no mention of it. If that was Grimes wow it would've been shown from every camera angle.

On lynch, had he pushed a player into a cats player and he did his ACL, he would be front and back page news. Hawkins is a serial pusher but the media turns a blind eye.

I know we have copped it but geez I feel its Richmond V the world and its galvanised the players.
