That trade show on FoxFooty is like a long Monty Python sketch. One of the panellists floats are a wild hypothetical trade scenario that has no realistic chance of occurring yet a fellow panelist then claims a list manager from one of the clubs of the hypothetical trade is a genius list manager. Just bizarre.
Not sure I heard correctly but they were talking about how dodoro managed to get pick 8 for saad and montagna said that's why he's the best. what?

Must explain the peerless list they have and the premiership domination that goes with such a list.

Culture.

Competitiveness

Contenders.

Clearly a destination club.

I was filthy at how most of the journo's reported on us this year, funnily enough I reckon they've been doing a splendid job covering the Filth the last few days :)

Ha ha i heard that and yes that is what Montagna said.
Surely clubs are starting to go against him a bit , and surely players won’t want to go there , I’d imagine they’ve missed out on many because of him. Hope players remember he failed to get Dunkley in when he targeted him.

This is funny to watch now. I love how the media writes off the tiges after a nightmare season even though we were 15-7 in 2015 and had the worst pressure and gameplan in the comp in 16 that didn't match our personnel. Who would have thought that a team with riewoldt, Cotch, Dusty, Rance, Grimes, lambert and vlaustin could win a flag

Trust in Dimma is the message from that.

Great insights from a couple of leading AFL journalists. Worth a listen to tiger fans.

It would be great to be able to travel back in time. I'd like to walk in at the conclusion of that discussion and say to Lloyd, "Hi, I'm from the future. Dion Prestia is now a three-time Richmond premiership player, and Jacob Townsend is playing for Essendon. But don't worry, he's a premiership player, too. See ya."

LLoyd would be on the edge of his seat with that. Essendon won a premiership, big smile breaks out on his face, and you'd have to turn around and go, "oh and he won that at the Tiges too, Essendon are still really *smile* but winning trade week"

In fairness to reporting community, the little I have read or viewed via the net the pundits and scribes have been grudgingly positive in their respect for our achievement this season even Robbo and Barrett. It must hurt them to do so but at least they have done so

Exactly. They were death-riding us for most of the season. Barrett was still saying the era was over before the prelim. Nobody challenged Hartlett's call about people wanting to see our season ended because they all agreed.

Given how 2020 panned out, with the hubs, short games, etc. How could you say our era would be ended if we lost the PF or the GF?

This was a weird year and if we had not won, a reasonable comment would be that that 2020 was not a year you could make a medium term judgement from.

Just silly clickbait thinking from Barrett and the rest of them, also very short term thinking, as in, no-one will remember what these morons write more than a week after they have written it. While this is mostly true, the internet means that we don't need to remember their idiocy to be able to bring it back up.

I don't think this period will go down as a period of quality journalism, and not just on footy. One hopes that the quality of journalism rises again some time soon. Certainly some of the sites like The Mongrel Punt and a few others does give some hope.
