Excellent.

Has been in good form and if nothing else is a great mentor to new players coming through.

This is what makes a true champion. To continue the journey, to help the younger players, to play his role, to reduce his pay packet, to inspire. Trent, you have influenced so many and those players will reap your efforts in years to come. Thank you so much.

No Jack announcement.

Would have thought that they would announce them concurrently. Maybe Jack hasn't had his exit interview yet?

Jack had his exit interview today I saw him being interviewed by one of the media outlets as I walked PRO today, not sure if they caught him going in or coming out.

Saw that on 9’s news. Basically confirmed he’d be staying for less money without actually saying the words.

They probably want to spread the announcements over a couple of days so each gets fresh air in the news cycle

Rapt with Cotch staying on for another year as well.

This will further develop our young midfield group and teach hopefully Hopper & Taranto the ‘chimp way’.

Will also help Nankervis & Grimes in their captaincy roles next year too.

To me and to many of us Trent is still ‘numero uno’ not in title but in deed and spiritually.

The fact he will reach the 300 milestone and be along side greats of the 300 club is an honour.

If ‘that milestone’ is at the G I want to be , stand.applaud, acknowledge that he was part of the culture shift in attitude.

My wish is that he becomes a four time premiership player, 3 x premiership skipper.

By targeting Hopper & Taranto this will aid his and Prestia battered bodies and can be rested when need be because we have more midfield depth.

Let’s hope!

There was a snippet article in Saturday’s HUN from Ash Barty’s book where she spoke about how Cotch is like a brother to her. Was a good little article.
If someone has a subscription I’d appreciate it if they could post or PM me a copy of the article as I was going to share with someone else and the hard copy of the paper at home got thrown out by the boss.

Is this it?

Super-fit Australian tennis great Ash Barty has revealed a years-long struggle with her body image that left her with crippling insecurities. Here’s how she turned it around.

MY MATE TRENT THE TIGER

Ash Barty does not have a big brother, but there are times when Richmond AFL captain Trent Cotchin appears to fill this role in her life.
This much is clear from the pair’s close relationship, which extends not simply through the fact that Barty is a Richmond tragic, but because they both work closely with mindset coach Ben Crowe – a key member of Barty’s inner circle.
The athletes first met a decade ago, when Barty was based in Melbourne. They would run together, watch each other train, and she would go to Cotchin’s house for dinner with his wife Brooke and kids, she reveals in memoir My Dream Time. And the bond remains strong.
“Because he is an exceptional human being he has this sense of knowing when I need a mate, when I need a coffee or a text,” Barty told News Corp. “He has this incredible ability to uplift people and lead people and be funny and joke around and lighten things up.
“He has been so kind to me. It’s pretty amazing. As athletes we can share our journey.”
At key times in her career, Barty has found texts from Cotchin the perfect tonic, especially after her biggest disappointments.

“He tends to send messages that go like this: It was a tennis match. You lost. Get over it. No big deal. I love you, mate,” Barty writes in her book.
One example of Cotchin’s ability to send the right message at the right time came after Barty was shattered by a 2021 Australian Open quarterfinal loss to Karolina Muchova after winning the first set 6-1 a break up in the second set.
“Right now, I feel judged. She’s thrown it away. She’s screwed it up. She’s choked,” she writes. “Cotch knows how easy it is to hear those voices, so he replaces them with the affirmations he’s found in football.
“One of them is ‘You haven’t been buried, you’ve been planted’, but my favourite is his personal mantra: ‘Your greatest growth comes from your darkest times.’
“In this dark time, he sends me a long text, explaining how he was able to watch me play until late in the second set, when I was faltering. So he didn’t see the collapse, but he read about it later.”
“The text read: “Ash, I know nothing will really help, nor change anything, as you have all the answers, and you know it doesn’t change the incredible human you are and the impact you’re having on others.
“I’m proud of your continued growth! I’m grateful to watch and learn from you on how to be a special and authentic human being! Love you, mate! Chat to you soon.”
