One of the first gone for mine.
Still can’t run out a game. If he was a pick 70 he’d be gone already.

Frankston probably suits then.
Matthew Clarke recruited this unlikely young fellow to RFC as an inside mid. I have no idea why we still act as if Clarke got it right.

From the Great Potato Era we have Baker! Ross and Ralphsmith. All flawed but will play seniors. We want to cadge one more player. And rather than persevere with the bizarre delusion that RCD is a midfielder give the bloke a chance at what he is, not good at, but less bad at. HFF.

To do that we begin by pushing back at Matthew Clarke's Great Potato Era. And playing our #ND20 as a VFL HFF. To give him a chance to not be outclassed.

Opportunity has to be realistic. RCD VFA mid is a delusion. And we know where it began.

Personally, think he has more chance of being a successful Group 1 jockey (his real passion and ambition) than a successful HFF.

This is a great notion, Redders. Dimma should send a note like this to Balme about Clarke's recruiting.

“Don’t recruit wannabe Damien Oliver’s you idiot Clarke !!!”


Oh, no. Damien Oliver is fine - he's smart.

For Riley - big white sticks. Run straight. Kick ball etc. Hurt smalls, not ours.

The very notion that RCD could play mid, with his massively hampered football IQ was hilarious. (Are there any other low IQs with Clarke fingerprints? They don't call it the Great Potato Era for nothing.)

What the club does is overrule Clarke, give the very slow RCD a chance at HFF. And maybe get another flanker. If RCD doesn't make it we didn't deny a battler a chance at an easy position because we listened to a recruiting manager who got it very wrong. We gave him a go at a ow goal.

RFC is about Kool Aid. I'm about understatement.

This is the area of great debate, Olds. I'm saying let the kid play forward in the VFA and he might even make it in the AFL. Redders is rightly potting RCD at anything at any level.

But I think we all agree that he gets a chance to do something before we delist him.

The elephant in the room is we've all seen him as a delist for years.

Richmond have 6 more VFL games this season. I think it’s safe to say RCD has 6 more games in the Tiger colours then he,ll be free to look elsewhere.
