Ralph? First name basis Eazy?
Think you’d be alone here if we took a straw poll.
Not sure how you conclude that he brokered a great deal for RFC. Extracted maximum coin and maximum drama. Don’t think you appreciate how close he pushed us to the brink. I think the whole episode is masked by the extraordinary year Dusty had in 2017. I’m not sure we wanted to tie any player up for 7 years but we had no choice. Think Carr played us and North on a break and would have clearly told them that they’re in the game.
He is scum and, I can tell you for a fact, he’s no friend of RFC.
I catch up with Ralph whenever i'm in Richmond to witness a premiership.

I reckon the dusty deal was a ripper.

we get to see him in yellow and black for 7 years and we didnt squeeze out any players.

The salary cap squeeze is alive and well. It’s why we couldn’t give Shai a longer contract. Great list management had nothing to do with Dusty’s manager.
Agree it’s a great deal for Dusty
Please give Ralph my regards and let him know I’m ready to be managed

I hope bolton gets a good run in the midfield or the wing - use his pace
He needs a good game because they will drop him if he has a stinker.
I know that he is quality in the dry, I just can’t remember him playing in the rain.
Fingers crossed he slaps them

I quite like Ralph. He orchestrated a great deal for Dusty and RFC. Im sure he'll do the same with $hai.

If I was $hai and I got dropped this week, I would go a full dummy spit and conference call Free and WC on speaker in the RFC gym.

He won't though.
You should have a beer with him and get the goss a la Martin;)

Lot to like about this bloke.

Cool, doesn't panic and makes good decisions.

Keeper.

Great to see him in the guts and not shunted into a pocket.

Has added to our midfield depth now. Must keep.

Getting better and better and better
Yep. Let’s just hope he understands this wouldn’t have happened unless he had spent that time at VFL level learning to be a midfielder. He’s much more than a small forward.

Needed to sign him up while he was cheap last year. Going to be hard to keep.

Still just 20 years old and regularly impacting AFL games. Pretty funny reading in this thread at the same time last year.
