Just finished listening to a general analysis of last night's game and standing of the two sides, between the Vice President of the Richmond Haters Society, Connelly, and the secretary of the Ladies Auxiliary, Hudson. The general tone of the discussion was incredulous disbelief, firstly that they are still dead wrong about their love child Melbourne, and secondly, of course, that Richmond are where they are. We are nothing more than a side of bit players, blessed by a freakish run luck with injuries, and the game last night was ordinary. I can guarantee these visionaries 2 things... we won't be meeting Connelly"s Essendon in September, and as for Huddo's mob, snowflakes will open a holiday resort in hell before they don't have to play a final against us in our house. Got that boys?

Penny is starting to drop with the 7 mob, 'they're a powerful side now'.

Just gotta love the media gibberers constantly dismissing our performances. We might have to sneak up on them again this year n steal another premiership ( gawd, I love that word ) while they're busy pontificating about how mediocre we are.
Had to double check the match report article in today's Hun by the Landsberger bloke, was completely out of context to the crap splattering from some experts.

Quite enjoyed it last night when Ling delivered a long speech about how Petracca is untackleable, then right on cue Rance nails him cold on the HFF. 8-

I was listening to Connelly on the radio on the way home last night and he described us as clearly the best side in the competition at the moment

yep. He was placating understandably distraught Dees supporters ;D for most of the night. Saying that we will make most sides look silly.

Still many who dont give high value to the direction we have taken the game.

The pressure on the man and the ferocity with which we tackle makes the game hard and tough. Most teams are trying to emulate this now.

AT the ground it was a tough hard fought contest for 3 qtr's. That takes a load of fitness, we are yet to meet a side that can match us for more than 3 qtrs when we are on.



Funny how Sydney get credit over the last 5 years for being the bench mark for bringing the heat, before that they where the ugly ducklings.



To be fair the best sides are consistent over many seasons. That will be the thing that brings the respect.

That's great. He didn't say that this morning, And you don't think that statement includes a caveat?

I agree our games are ugly from an opposition perspective ;D, they can't score or hit targets :harp due to our pressure and the fact we have the best defense in the league by a mile. The AFL should change the rules and tell Richmond that they should allow so called classier teams, (I say bullsh!t), the luxury of roaming the ground without interference.

Sadly for the AFL and footy commentators they can't use the old low scoring game line they use to pull out as proof of ugly footy, not a problem for us anyway we have scored over 100 points in 8 of our last 10 games :clap

Fox commentators were pretty unanimous in calling us the benchmark and the best team in the league.

I saw a Kane Cornes quote to the effect, there is us at the top, the lions and blooze at the bottom and the rest are pretty much equal.

i think most are coming around to the fact we are on course to be one of the most dominant teams in history, in probably any sport not just aussie rules.

I was impressed also with the Fox team last night. Although Roo's thought Melb would win he was full of praise for the Tigers - soemthing he hasn't really done much of before now. Most of the panel praised us and said we are the best team, full of confidence and set the benchmark for other teams. About time we hear this!

Dermie agrees we are the best team but said : "Richmond fans will hate me saying this but it is a POOR Comp. They are far from a great side"

Here we go! Brereton with Connelly right now... "Richmond is the best team in the comp.... AND IT'S A WEAK COMP! THEY ARE FAR FROM A GREAT SIDE!" And that my friends is as much as they will ever give us, even if we win 2, 3 flags. That is now the established narrative. Get used to it.
