Our team is system based, and its a well known thing across the AFL.

Other teams are still looking for individual brilliance.

They are also probably wantiong to keep us crippled with the Salary Cap and not take players who will help give us room to strengthen our side even further.

Same thing seems to have been happening with Collingwood this trade period oppositions know they are stuffed with the cap, and dont want to let em off the hook.

Not that we were offering up much that would get opposition clubs overly excited either.
They offered up Thomas pick 86
Forskin elliott pick 109
Phillips pick 45
Aish pick 70.

Bloody strange isn't it. Made the finals six of the last seven years. Last three years it's two flags n a prelim, yet apart from a handful of stars no-one rates our players as relevant. Clubs tripping over themselves n beating up on one another with sticks trying the maximum rip off over players or trade values for mid tier players from mediocre clubs while running scared of dealing with the dominant club of recent years. Yet we've probably been the most open n up front club to deal with.
3 or 4 players went last year and 2 this year so far so not sure they're not rated as relevant. Most of our players just don't want to go anywhere else. I think that's a product of the culture we've built. Many of the trade period trades are players wanting to leave their clubs.

For Kam McIntosh, Tom Lynch was the butterfly flapping it's wings over the Pacific Ocean.

He's probably the last person that would have seen his position as under threat by the Lynch recruitment, but Caddy being pushed out of the forward line seems to have pushed McKintosh our of the centre line.

I like McKintosh and i think he still has a lot to offer. He was always a good chop out if we had to hack it out of defense to a one on one (which he rarely lost), but i guess the question is whether he can push back into a centre line position or whether he has to re-invent himself as a backman, maybe in the role of a Nathan Broad. Personally i'm not sure his strengths lend him to that role, but in so far as the centre line is concerned, he's limited to taking back a wing spot. I'm not sure his hands are clean enough to push into a central role on the centre line. He either has a massive pre-season and pushes someone out of a wing spot on pure form, or he becomes a depth player "just in case", and not a bad one at that.

If he's to forge a new path in defense, i think his ability to defend the ball in the air and just as importantly, clunk intercept marks will need a lot of improvement.

We just spent half of 2019 with half our list injured, whose to say Kam isn't a very important player in 2020 for the same reason.

He played a lot of defence in the VFL this year and I thought he was overall quite underwhelming. It has to be a wing spot or nothing imo but Caddy pushed ahead of him this year and a few youngsters have likely gone past him as well. Unless he can somehow improve I think his opportunities are numbered but he is contracted till 2021 when he becomes a restricted free agent so isn't going anywhere in a hurry.

Great position to have a player like McIntosh as a depth player.

He may get some games if injuries dictate and at an outside he might force his way back into the side. However the number of even quicker runners we have taken means he is in danger of being overtaken (more like swamped) and he might be one to get squeezed out ala B Ellis style at the end of next year.

Rance, Ross, Stack probs best 22. That means three come out, that’s tough enough.

Then Naish, RCD, Fraser, CCJ, Eggs pushing. He’s a fair way back, modern day Stevie Morris.

Spot on Scooper.

Ol loveable Ol Grover has quickly found himself back in the pack with his form drop off and is gonna have some work to do to get a spot in the side let alone a more nailed on spot in the 22.

He's gonna need Super Grover form to be running out in round 1.

His best is barely good enough now, will need to vastly improve to get back in the mix for best 22.

Limited trade value now, I called for him to be traded years ago. Depth for two years is handy tho.

When your a western australian and even Freo dosent show any interest you know your in trouble.
Im with you, he will only get games either through injuries or resting players.
I wouldn't have him in my top 25 at the club.
When's his contract up??

I love Macca. Was there really any truth in those WA articles about him being disgruntled?
No. I have a very good source (family member) who says he was disappointed to miss, but that he loves the club and wants to stay.

Apparently the dialogue between him and the club has always been very open, honest and forthright.

Honest enough for him to accept that he isnt good enough to play in our best 22?

I doubt that Richmond even entertains the idea of a best 22 these days. I’d have thought our culture was inclusive and celebrated what you brought to the list, not how you stack up against your team mates.
