Coach of the year is a nice to receive I guess for a coach, but it's imperfect. The Clarko example is exactly that. He's churned out a bunch of assistants who've become head coaches, most of them successful. That's not a fluke.

I reckon Clarko is happy to win flags and miss the award though. The Premiership isn't subjective. The coaches award is.

Great to see Dimma using my music to inspire the boys!

Here are the lyrics to Blood Brothers by The Boss , a beautiful song:


We played king of the mountain out on the end
The world come chargin' up the hill, and we were women and men
Now there's so much that time, time and memory fade away
We got our own roads to ride and chances we gotta take
We stood side by side each one fightin' for the other
We said until we died we'd always be blood brothers
Now the hardness of this world slowly grinds your dreams away
Makin' a fool's joke out of the promises we make
And what once seemed black and white turns to so many shades of gray
We lose ourselves in work to do and bills to pay
And it's a ride, ride, ride, and there ain't much cover
With no one runnin' by your side my blood brother
On through the houses of the dead past those fallen in their tracks
Always movin' ahead and never lookin' back
Now I don't know how I feel, I don't know how I feel tonight
If I've fallen 'neath the wheel, if I've lost or I've gained sight
I don't even know why, I don't know why I made this call
Or if any of this matters anymore after all
But the stars are burnin' bright like some mystery uncovered
I'll keep movin' through the dark with you in my heart
My blood brother

Bewdy. When the fixture came out, the first thing I looked for was if we played the suns up there so I can organise my annual road trip. The game will be even more special now that that has been pointed out.

But the review of the book tells the story of Dimmas pre-GF address to the players.
Just further adds to Dimma’s status.
Thanks for the link, Tenacious.
Good article from Connolly.
I really enjoyed Marshall's book about 2017 flag, so this will also be a ripper no doubt.

This sort of coverage of RFC's success just indicates how comfortable the Club sits with itself and the culture it has created among the coaches, players and staff.
As much as the other clubs in the comp might try and replicate RFC's intellectual and emotional property, they try in vain unless they really have buy-in from all, a spirit that is unique and a willingness to bind together in a collective fashion.
Long live the Richmond Man.

should add a line or two about kick it to dusty?

sometimes doubt will make you feel rusty.
so bang it on the boot, in the direction of dusty.

Thanks for that tenacious.

Another example of who Dimma and his players have become.

This cant be copied by other players/coaches. We have seen the end result of their attempts.
MANUFACTURED.
NO TOTAL BUY IN.
