I’m taking these “handy” performances as a nice building step to full on Richmond way , Im hoping as players comeback and regain fitness that we will get enough wins to finish top 4 , not that I think it matters we can do it from anywhere in the 8 and possibly playing each week could well be an advantage again.

intresting thing ( fingers crossed) all been well, who of these impressive Cubs plays in the best 22? Once Nank and Lynch are back who goes out , is it Chol or CJ or both ? Has Nigel shown enough to be starting back half ? RCD, Dow, Martyn , Ross can any of those push the door down and get in the midfield when the champs are all back ( hopefully) how about DTLD is he a lock to comeback , yes I think he is , especially against the Dees, Dogs, Power and Lions .

I think a huge say in how far we go is how much we can have Dusty and Shai playing forward , if we can get one of the Cubs to prove themselves as part of the mid rotation then geeez well be hard to beat.

We're a game outside top 4. One game.

*Oh, but the percentage.* We play Norf and Hawf in the last three weeks. We could win both of those by 100. I think we'll slap the Lions, dinting their percentage and increasing ours.

And as I said last week, I don't think we'll lose again this year. Maybe in the qualifying final against Melbourne if a few blokes are short of a run, just to make it sweeter when we break their hearts three weeks later. Maybe against Geelong just so we can laugh harder when they once again play September stepladder.

That brings tears to my eyes.

We couldn’t have manufactured that if we tried - hand over favouritism to Adelaide in 17, Cats in 19, Port and Lions in 20, let them take the heat and then watch them wilt under expectations. Dees will be quivering in their boots come finals this year.

The Tiger trap has been set ready for Dimma’s demolition to take place.

Nice run home this year too. A couple of challenging games in there to keep us on our toes, but mostly lower teams.

I mentioned that stat to a couple of oppo supporting mates of mine today (Melb and dogs). Then I added, “ Be afraid, be very afraid bwahahaha”
Even over Zoom I think I saw the fear in their eyes. They weren’t as cocky after that :))

Has Richmond, incidentally or otherwise, cottoned on to a magic formula for winning the premiership?
Lots of significant injuries to key players early season.
The benefit is you are forced to blood younger players. They thrive in a successful environment and create significant pressure for spots in the team when the injured players return.
And you are forced to be in form at the business end of the season.
You also avoid finishing first which is not ideal because more often than not, you get a better opponent in the Preliminary Final.
Case in point ... 2018. We were a class above the competition all year and didn't even get to the big dance.

R23 v Hawthorn (H) –


keep forgetting to do this.

This West Coast game is huge. Win that and we should be 11-5 when we get to Brisbane and Geelong, and finish with between 15 and 17 wins.

100%. beat west coast and we go 11-5. And we will. West Coast are the most overrated team in the comp. they are still living on the events on 2018.

On another note, is anyone able to confirm that Richmond and Essendon still share the gate receipts for the Dreamtime Game? They must have made a killing last Saturday night.

I like 2019:the best but that’s pretty motivating stats for the boys to have up on the wall.

Haven't checked the fixtures but I wonder if what's really happening here is the AFL are trying to bend us over by having us play better sides earlier in the year.
