If we didn't make the 8 then it would at least be time for the discussion about if it was time to move on.
Might not win the flag, but I reckon we'll make the 8. Dimma's been here 13 years, it might be his choice to move n reinvigorate himself rather than us nudging. Could be perfect timing for a new coach to come through. Still be a core of senior premiership players on the list plus a whole bunch of generation next that will have some games under the belt and an appetite for some of the success that the others have experienced

It will be his choice, not a clown from Adelaide radio

The comparison to Dustin is nuts.

He's more like Lenny Hayes with better skills, maybe Joel Selwood at a pinch.

I DeGoey is more like a Jake Stringer type.

DeGoey has better forward craft than both Hayes and Selwood.

But the full stop on the argument was Leigh Matthews saying that DeGoey wasn't fit to tie Dustins shoes (paraphrasing). Also when Lethal said that Dustin was the only player he wasn't offended being compared to.

Massive praise.

Dimma is contracted until 2024, if we don't make the eight he won't be moved on. He might move on, (doubt it) but he won't be sacked.
Anyhow it's a moot point, because we'll make the eight, and the top four and the GF, of that I'm very confident.

CARN THE TIGES !!!!

Both the Package n Goo are nothing more than K Mart versions of Dusty. Nowhere near consistent enough to be on the same page. Pee tracca is almost getting up toward similar rarefied air of Dusty, but still has a way to go. Powerful explosive mids that can be devastating in bursts up forward.

De Goey and the Package are not fit to iron and fold the Tiger Kings Undies.

And Petracca is not near him yet either, I don't see his Charlie and 3 winning Norms.

History would suggest it is better for everyone if he walks away whenever this golden era comes to a close.
I will back him in to be like his main coach Sheedy. From a very aged team full of champions when they lost in 1990 to a flag in 1993.

With our current list management and age demographic I don't think missing the finals will occur while Dimma is contracted until 2024.

It doesn't happen very often, just about never, but Dimma walking away would be the desirable way for a legend of the RFC to depart the club.

The K-Mart Dusty's aren't even mids, they are fwds that rotate through the midfield. Stringer can't even cut against the decent sides. The media praise him after dominating against bottom 4 sides. He even went missing against us last yr & we had a midfield of Dusty, Bolton, Graham & kids

That explains everything. He still won’t have recovered. The RFC broke tossers like him good and proper on that glorious Saturday in 2017.

They thought they had the flag in the bag even before turning up.
Their loss has put them back 10 years.
They might take 37 years recover.
Arrogant & Cocky before a GF equals recipe for a disaster.

I knew when I saw the cup presentation after the parade on the Friday that we were in their heads the way Cotch wouldn’t let go of the cup until Tex did first. Had the game half won, then and there.
