The key thing is structure! forget about your emotions, they are important, but I feel we need to sort this quickly. Our small fleet of forwards is history, cause they are always outnumbered in the forward line, their opponents have bigger bodies, our small get out marked. Against the top teams melbourne, geelong and brisbane, we need the extra tall forward to mark or bring the ball down. Need to work out to open our forward line better, create space for one on one, have our talls running in for the pass.
1. when Dusty kicked to CCJ, it was a brilliant kick, Dusty forced CCJ to his right where his opponent was left of him. in that passage, there was an additional player trying to stop him on the run.
2. When Ralphy kicked his first, the camera behind the goals shown 6 crows players to our 3.

‘Where did he come from?’: Chol recalls spectacular Riewoldt mark


Daniel Cherny
The Age
June 1, 2021

Richmond’s Mabior Chol says he didn’t see Jack Riewoldt coming in the lead-up to the Tigers star’s stunning hanger late in Sunday’s win over Adelaide.

Chol had been leading to a kick inside 50 from Jack Graham but was upstaged by Riewoldt, who soared to take a spectacular pack mark after running back with the flight of the ball. Riewoldt converted the ensuing set shot en route to a five-goal haul in the 28-point victory over the Crows at Giants Stadium.

“It was a funny one. I did not see Jack coming at all,” Chol said on Monday of the incredible moment.

“Credit to him, it was an amazing mark. I think if you see the footage, I was pretty shocked, where he came from. I was like, ‘Wow, where did he come from?’”

Riewoldt risked injury by tracking back with the flight of the ball, an issue brought to the fore last week by AFLW star Darcy Vescio when she questioned whether a similarly courageous mark from Western Bulldogs gun Lachie Hunter should have been celebrated.

“Having no regard for your own safety shouldn’t be what makes you a good teammate,” Vescio tweeted.

Chol said that ultimately players acted on instinct when it came to such moments.

“I think it’s just an instinct thing. It’s a hard one to call because you’re just playing off instinct out there. It happens so quick you don’t even notice,” Chol said.

Yeah ridiculous comment. As Chol said players act on instinct. Some do what Jack did instinctively, others don't. It's a contact sport and the reality is that players get hurt and injured; unfortunately sometimes seriously. But if you don't want to take the risk that's fine; find another sport. There is always a choice.

I love the mark, it was a stunner.

But if Jack is playing a higher role he should know - or be told - not to run back into the big forward lanes.

My bet is he was both lauded and quietly chastised for the decision.

What if Chol got injured? He looked to have the mark covered anyway.

There is zero chance that Jack was chastised for taking that mark.

Yeh, Dimma was full of praise for Jack. Doubt he was having a go at him behind closed doors. The ball was in his vicinity and he went for it.

Yep. Imagine how good Chol could be come if he had that killer desire to win the ball. Can't teach it unfortunately, you either have it or you don't.

Well that was an interesting game now that I have seen a replay.

It seemed to be played on the basis of finding space rather than controlling territory. You could see a lot more chipping and often passes were short. I think the skill levels looked better from Richmond, less handballs to team mates' feet although less pressure when you are playing Adelaide than one of the better teams.

The forward line looked more open and far less static. Was good to see a lot more movement and leading by forwards, good delivery certainly helps too. Makes you wonder just how restricted Lynch has been, good idea to have his knee sorted now because Lynch has looked less effective.

The umpiring was interesting. I thought Walker was a bit stiff to be done for HTB early in the first quarter, but they paid a very similar one against McIntosh literally a minute or two later. They seemed a bit less strict on it later in the game although Prestia copped one which was a bit 50/50 later in the game - less inconsistency. I saw one incident where a Richmond player pushed an Adelaide player just as or maybe a little after the Adelaide player kicked the ball, a free was paid. Now, you see this every game, players grabbing and pushing players all the time - if they pay this consistently the game will open up. I also noticed Baker at one point about to tackle an Adelaide player and hold off as the Adelaide player didn't have possession, was still trying to gather the ball. An instruction maybe? If they decide to enforce holding the man and pushing more I reckon it will improve the game. Will be interesting to see how all of this goes.

Caddy surprised me. He is slow but if he can use his ability to read the game to compensate he has a chance to play seniors. He did seem to pop up in the right places and that worked.

Nup, anyone who has played football knows how annoying it is. Let’s assume he missed the mark. Nine out of ten attempts and he would have. Most other players zero chance.

We’d all be talking about Chol being spoiled and a closer finish.

Can’t have it both ways. If Riewoldt was the one on the straight lead he would’ve ripped Cholly a new one.

I remember Pickett’s great grab in the VFL, CJ went off at him and had half a case.

But a great grab regardless. I’m glad he took it and didn’t injure himself or Mabs.
