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 :)

So are you saying ... we're tanking, without calling it that? Have to admit it's crossed my mind.
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.

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.

Yep. Totally our fault we lost with bad disposal but flogs played their part. Always shows clearly when questionable frees lead to goals.

Because we were 2nd to the ball in the last quarter. Chasing Collingwood tails when you're spent means mistakes when tackling or trying to get the ball back.

The umpires were ok most of the day. They missed a few frees to us in our foreward line but they also missed a few to them too.

When we were a great team these free kick misses did not impact on our way to find a way to win.

But we are not a great team this year, in fact I would suggest we are not even a good team.....

And no you're not a mug! You're a passionate Tiger supporter, which is a great thing.......
