IF Dimma was involved with this woman as far back as 2019, then it clearly has had no impact on his coaching or the playing group.
We have won 2 glorious Premierships in this time frame.
The tabloid footy media parasites are just stirring up crap as usual.

how did he find the time?

and agree with the posts a few pages about about the daily mail. it is just as likely the opposite of what they wrote is true.

Why do people want to fix something when it is not broken?

Having been running my own businesses for decades until I retired 3 years ago I learnt that in a majority of turmoil situations it is best to sit on your hands and let it play out for a while before making a decision. Most times it solves itself. Those times it didn't fix itself a decision was easier to make and it didn't hurt the business if that decision was made 3 months later or a year later.

Sit tight. Allow those in the RFC Footy Department, coaches, players etc to sort it out if it needs sorting out. If they can't, then that's when management steps in!

End of Rant!
Correct. Half the worries in the world never happen. But don’t be imprudent or reckless nevertheless.

If thats the case, they should sack him for not finding her earlier.

Don't disagree. I've heard Jack is to front the media on Monday in support of Dimma on behalf of the players. My reaction to that is 1) why wait until Monday? and 2) Why not have Cotch make that statement as captain and also due to Mrs Cotchin's interactions with Mrs Hardwick recently
Why wait ? The drum sticks are in the Tigers hands right now & they can dictate when & where!

I’m starting to get worried by some of the texts I’m getting from so many people and some whose mail is usually pretty good.
The club has serious form in relation to imposing their views/morals/opinions on their customers (us), with their overdoing of the woke stuff on many who just want to barrack for a football club and not get involved in politics.
So it wouldn’t surprise to see them pressure an employee (coach) out of the place because he’s done something they don’t like. I hope not, would be a serious overstep and could be the undoing of a great era.

What horse *smile*. Standing up for human rights and against racism/bullying is not politics.

If you read any of Konrad's books you'd know that being a Richmond man is about acknowledging that no one is perfect and we all make mistakes we wish we could take back. Dimma is going nowhere.

Like I said it's a personal matter simple as that it's the media bringing the club into it rubbish like disarray etc garbage.Players and staff are employed in there proffesional role to do there job not involve themselves in personal matters.

Why isn't Capt doing the presser.
Reasonable question.

Maybe because they want the press conference to focus on what's important and not dimmas love life, gossip/she said he said then she said?

Riewoldt has historically done a lot of media for the club so I don't see why it's an issue.

As others have said, let this story die from a lack of oxygen and let's move on to talk of how we're planning our Threepeat.

If he did all the questions would be about brookes social media
Perhaps one or two after it was batted away the 2nd time the reporters would get the message.
I think it's a pertinent question and if you wanted to show solidarity then coach and Capt together sends a more powerful message.
Perhaps I'm reading too much into it.

I agree re: story needs to die.
It seems to have gone quiet in the revelations front.
At this time.
