Just on the media I listened to Brian Taylor’s interview on the talking tigers podcast. I’m not BT fan as a commentator but the interview is great. Well worth a listen. On the website
Brilliant interview - loved it.

I thought it was a little disappointing. Didn't really delve into why he left and expand on his playing career. THey avoided the usual questions they ask guests because BT has no real love for Richmond.

The podcast is not really about that sort of stuff jb, its a session where old players do a fluffy piece. In that sense BT was a strange choice but given what you say I thought the interview was great.

FWIW , to be honest BT had legitimate grievances, there is no doubt he should have played in the 1982 Grand final. It not only may have lost us a premiership it probably lost us a 10 year quality full forward

Nah, we had a ten year quality FF in Roach and that's why it was never Gunna work with he and BT.

BT kicked 71 goals in 15 games in 1982 and Roach kicked 38 playing further up the ground and in the ruck
Astonishing decision imo but its all in the past

Interesting comment about he and Cloke. I reckon you're right.

Watson's legend as a dumb arse was enhanced last night...

Apparently that taking the legs out wasn't a free to Balta.

He said something else as equally dumb later on but I cant even remember that.

He speaks and i think of this.

I enjoyed it. I was pleasantly surprised about his strong affection and admiration for Roachy as a person and a player.
