You gotta laugh at the media morons this week going on about how underrated and special he is. Like, 5-6 years after every Richmond fan or anyone else with half a clue knew.

Superstar.

Apparently Darcy Byrne-Jones is better. And Luke Ryan (whoever he is).

How this bloke is not already at least a dual All-Australian beggars belief.

Darcy Byrne-Jones ha ha haaaarrghhh!!!

It's a travesty mate.

In his best form since being knocked out in the 2020 GF.

Elite Tigga is back baby & that is a very good thing for our premiership chances..

Classy player.

I'm not sure he's not a better player than Hodge or Hurn. Positions a bit more like Hodge.

When Alex Rance retired we were all asking who would step up. Vlastuin is the bloke who works high and pushes back. And that begs the question - did we cover Rance? If so, how.

I say we did pretty much and I blame Vlastuin.

Definitely better than Hurn. Arguably a better defender than Hodge, but definitely a lesser midfielder.

I reckon 99.9% percent of opposition coaches would have Vlaustin in All Australian 3 or so times already. I'm sure in opposition discussions pre game of tiger games he would be right up there as 1 to nullify. I'd have him as AA captain I rate him that highly.

He didn’t get many kicks or handballs in the 2020 gf from memory. I think he only got one kick, but at least he got two tackles and one forearm to the head.

Sorry, can't be true. The head is sacrosanct and if Vlastuin was knocked out by a forearm to the head then the MRP would have sent it to the tribunal and the offender would have his actions scrutinised.

MRP reviewed the incident n decided that the Clench being forced to play out the entire game ineffectually and be humiliated in a late moment incident by the Dusty one was adequate punishment for the AFLPA president. They also felt that Clench should have been ushered from the ground by security to ensure he wasn't further traumatized by having to endure the delirious over the top celebrations by the winning players or the presentation of trophies.
