I will give you odds.

5/4 Caro arrows us.

3-1 Less then a minute taking about our game on the couch

2-1 Brown or Lyon will have Riewodlt'a set shot as there "bad"

6-4 Healy forgets WC exists and jumps on Ports bandwagon.

5-1 Robbo dosent even highlight our game and if Whateley says anything, he will change the subject.

Might have to wait to Wednesdays FC. Ross Lyon is one of the few that pumps us up.

Hope the barbs keep coming. Seems to be working well for us.

Its unbelievable, they can't attack the playing group. But going after a non story.
Seriously who gives a *smile* about Cotchin going to the saloon?
She made a mistake, both Trent and his wife have accepted the punishment, its all over.
How can this story be bigger then a vice captain of a club been found wandering the streets in his jocks during lockdown and another vice captain of another club that chose to drive drunk through the suburbs of Melbourne again during lockdown.
Im over the media and their restless pursuit of gutter stories.
What happened to the 6 partner's of the North players that thought it was ok just to go and watch them play while mixing with the crowd?

Group looked pretty tight the other night , im guessing any problems have been ironed out,

things arent always rosy , that is only natural, and this whole hub thing is new territory, but you sort out stuff and move on ,

Media looking for another Richmond story is probably the real story here

Massive endorsement in todays presser by Hardwick for the Cotchins.

Did his best to put any unrest to bed regarding the hub crisis.

Link to presser.

Link to 7news report.
Excerpt from news report:

Richmond coach Damien Hardwick has backed Trent Cotchin to lead the Tigers into the finals without issue after the dual premiership captain and his family “stuck fat” in the hub.

Cotchin entertained the idea of leaving Queensland to return home to Victoria in the wake of heavy scrutiny on him and his wife Brooke in early August.

Richmond were fined by the AFL after Brooke attended a day spa, breaching the league’s COVID protocols


The emotional fallout - including social media abuse that rocked the couple - led to serious discussions about whether Cotchin would remain in the hub.

“There was a conversation at one stage,” Hardwick confirmed on Tuesday.

“Trent is a family man, (he) will always do what’s best for his family. We are very much a club that is aligned to those values.

“We won’t ask a person to put themselves above their family. You know, Trent had some decisions to make and he’s very supportive of his family as we are supportive of Trent.

“But the reality is you sort of look at the conditions we’re in. We are very fortunate to be in better conditions than most in Victoria but probably 90 per cent of the people up here at some stage have gone ‘look, it’s hard’.

“I probably would think about going home (in that situation). But the reality is Trent has stuck fat, his family has stuck fat, they’ve been incredible up here and we are incredibly supportive of both of them.”

Have watched this unfold with some interest. I think Cotch comes out of it very well as a supporter of his family and his club. Not so much his father in law who is not believable about his daughter not telling him she had been told to keep her mouth shut.
Who else might have told him if not his daughter.
Sorry business, but somewhat inevitable with demands put on families living in unfamiliar circumstances with unclear boundaries.

We couldnt no wrong the last couple of years, maybe Riewodlt jumping the fence to catch the train but this year we have absolutly killed it in off field incidents.
Time to pack it up and head home.
The media will feed off this till it tear's the club in half.
