I'm thinking your thinking about Balmey's thinking is exactly right.I'm thinking, he's thinking he'll never ever leave Richmond!
This recentDon't tell me Blobbo the Salesman tried to get Balmey over to the Druggies?
It's a bloody rip snorter TPIt is great re reading the first post in this thread. How wrong can one person be??
thanks for posting 74 - magnificent listening.
Haha this has aged well...You will slowly find out that anything your post without rose coloured glasses is not acceptable. How dare you bring up valid points about our current predicament. Its all good. We are just going to switch gears half way through the season because Dimma didn't want to peak early this year and we will win the premiership in a canter.
His comments about not peaking early shows just how out of touch he is. He was spooked in a similar manner years ago and it took him 5 years to realise he had it all wrong. I have a feeling we are treading down the same path again.
It was pretty obvious that Balme was a smart guy when he joined the Tigers but after listening to that SEN podcast made me realise how lucky we are to have such a clever and clear thinking bloke on our teamthanks for posting 74 - magnificent listening.
great characters breed great clubs
In the old days you could have a free swing at Richmond and be proven more or less correct every time, but the old rules no longer apply.Haha this has aged well...
Its funny for the most part these blokes only pop up with their infinite wisdom when there is a 'crisis' they need advise us all on.
It was actually a guru like post. We did switch gears halfway through the year and win the premiership in a canterIt's a bloody rip snorter TP
I'd quote it but it's too bloody dangerous!
'Tramtracks' Hardwick certainly took the advice that Balmey obviously passed on after reading PRE
and while he was sniffin around the changerooms he must've given Dusty a rocket and told the rest of the boys to cut out the lovey dovey stuff and harden the **** up!
If I had of been brilliant enough to have written such a post, I would've bumped it the moment we won the flag and claimed it as the defining moment of our season and the catalyst for our success!
A guru like post made after 3 games of the season - from where I was sitting it was more like a complete overreaction to a couple of early season games compounded by a rising injury toll to some of our more senior players. The negativity sprouted and the anti Hardwick rhetoric was not disguised at all despite the pretense of concern for our form since the 2018 prelim.It was actually a guru like post. We did switch gears halfway through the year and win the premiership in a canter
Notice in that SEN chat that Balmey said he still had a great relationship with MOST of the clubs he has been at, hmm I wonder which one he does'tBalmey is brilliant. Intelligent, experienced, human. How the flogs at Collingwood managed to sideline this bloke twice - is a testament to the true culture of that club.
