Am I the only one getting tired of people saying a draftee plays or looks like a Richmond man? Seen it applied a lot lately by many posters.
Not sure what this actually means? I understand the club’s interpretation of it and it applies to certain values and character traits. Not sure you can apply it to a playing style or a haircut on first glance so maybe we should use the term more sparingly?

It's just what happens when a team plays good footy, there has to be a secret sauce to satisfy the masses.

A bit like Hawthorn's 'unsociable' football, which was just a fancy way of saying they apply pressure and tackle a lot.

Good luck with that DA he’s Maurice Riolis son. I was being a little cheeky with term but I was encouraged to use it as he showed specific traits that our club seem to value. I imagine he’s getting advice and feedback from Daniel and the club but I have no idea really.

Sorry about that mis-info haven't watched it yet, I took 'jokershoppe's word as gospel' that MRJ was BOG, a good game nonetheless
If he was BOG I would have drafted him.
3rd? Not good enough. Maybe rookie if he is still there

Imagine the meltdown from the media when the back to back premiers take a top 10 talent and the son of a great with a couple of picks in the 40's and 50's

I think a Richmond man/woman is somebody that upholds the values that have been instilled in them.

Hoping we can trade out of the 1st round at least next year.
Package up to get an extra 1st rounder in 2021.
Guarantee another club will put an early bid on him.
In any case, just really hope he develops well and becomes a great AFL player.
Trade next years first rounder for a first rounder the following year.... use those two first rounders to get Tom Green when he comes out of his initial 2 year contract

Voted 3rd best in the match.
Now, after finally watching the full game I wouldn't have had MRJ in my top three although not a bad game, would still like to see a bit more running in his game, does seem to have slimmed ever so slightly in the caboose region though.

I can't see a team making a bid for a player they didn't rate at that pick just to keep another team honest. It would be counter-productive to that team.

If Jnr doesn't start to blitz then he'll be there at our Rookie pick but I don't know if FS priority stretches to the rookie list. At worst we'd give a throw away last pick just to secure him before the rookie draft.

We owe it to Maurice to give Jnr a crack at AFL.

Yes according to the rules you can select them onto your rookie list prior to the commencement of the rookie draft.

Subject to Rule 8.8(b), where an eligible Father/Son Player has been nominated in accordance with Rule 8.4(b) and is not selected at a National Draft or PreSeason Draft Selection Meeting, the Club with whom he is eligible as a 57 Father/Son Player may include him on its Rookie List prior to the Rookie Draft Selection Meeting in accordance with Rule 10.4.
