Been playing a lot of petulant, arrogant, angry, disdainful footy this year.
In a perverse way it might not be such a bad thing to miss finals this year. Get an extended break, refresh and reset the attitude n hunger, plus conduct the necessary renewal adjustments of the playing list. Start anew in 22.
So are you saying ... we're tanking, without calling it that? Have to admit it's crossed my mind.

But then, so, the Weagles must be doing same. Both sides have been crap since our loss in Perth to them - WCE statistically even worse - 92 pt loss to the Ducks; 55 pt loss to the Dogs.
Something slipped into both sides drink bottles that's taken effect upon all the players since? o_O

Port 22 Richmond 12 Rosebury Deboy Hosking
St Kilda 23 Richmond 13 Stevic Gavine Fleer

West Coast 25 Richmond 15 Haussen Rosebury Dore
St Kilda 18 Richmond 23 Stevic Deboy Fleer
Gold Coast 29 Richmond 22 Donlon Howorth Whetton

Umpire Tallies - Including RFC Games Total
2 Rosebury -20
2 Donlon -19
2 Howorth -19
2 Stephens -17
2 Williamson -17
2 Foot -17
3 Haussen -13
3 Deboy -12
3 Dalgeish -12
1 Nicholls -12
4 Fleer -11
3 Hosking -10
1 Dore -10
1 Mollison -10
1 Power -10
1 Whetton -7
2 Gavine -7
2 Stevic -5
2 Johanson -5
1 Brown +3
1 Glouftsis +4
1 Margetts +5
1 Toner +7
2 Fisher +7

Donlon and Howorth were paired again for the second time and are now threatening Rosebury at the top of the heap.
A 4th quarter performance for the ages brought home the bacon for Hock. Rumours are starting to circulate that Umpire #18 is being kept under wraps for round 23 in the event that Richmond need a win to make the eight.

so I think we can discount

the umpires dont like black and yellow theory

I watched Labrador (tigers jumpers) V Surfers (Dees jumpers) today.

and the Tigers received an incredible armchair ride from the umps.

it was as relentlessly bad for Surfers as it is for Richmond.

so its not the jumper.

Blackadder and Baldrick
Don’t ruin one of my all time favourite shows.
Blackadder and Baldrick were far more entertaining and knew how to put on a good show. And Baldrick is miles more intelligent than those 2 combined, especially in the later seasons :)

Haaaarrrrgh, nah. Don't need to try n tank when half your team's busted.
As Dimma keeps saying we play a system based game. Usually makes it real easy to simply plug n play someone when an injury occurs. Massive problem arises when you have to try n plug n play a whole bunch of kids that have barely or never played senior footy, due to the seniors having previously been so dominant. The system simply overloads n breaks down. We play the game with a bit of arrogance n niggle at the best of times, dominant sides usually do. Unfortunately when things turn to *smile*, everyone else decides it's time for a bit of pay back n we're getting somewhat frustrated n reactive.

When the sun shines you make hay, three flags in four years is a tremendous harvest.
When the *smile* hits the fan you collect fertiliser, plenty of much needed senior game time into the kids, plus a raft of early draft picks. Means we set the fields for another quality harvest.

We gave away some dumb frees in the last. you could sense umpires were willing to pay against us And we kept being undisciplined. Made it easy for them. Where‘s our leaders.

What happened to swallowing the whistle late in tight games??

Anyone who thinks the umpires had any influence on us losing today is a mug.

Richmond may have introduced the art of chaos to AFL football, but unfortunately the umpires have mastered it.

im a mug.

the too high on Taylor Adams to hand them the momentum was a joke.

we are cooked and spent and tired and all that,

but to suggest the umps had NO influence on that outcome is a bit strange I reckon

frees were even at 3/4 time. ended up 16 to 24.

When you dominate play, you get more frees. Pretty simple.

Richmond screwed Richmond today. No one else.
