Geelol by a mile then Colonwood, Spoon, Drugs, West Coke then Norf.
If we manage to go back to back next year, which I'm very much hoping for. You can quietly point out to your Moggies mate that we've achieved something their super team of a few years ago failed at.As a Richmond fan who grew up in the 70s, a hatred of Collingwood and Carlton is a given.
But even that is starting to fade.
Was out at a dinner recently with a good mate who's a Geelong fan. First time I'd seen him since the GF.
He said to me "I don't care who wins it next year, I just hope it isn't Richmond. Can't stand their arrogance and the way they got Tom Lynch.".
Company was relatively formal and I was so taken aback that I just let the comment fly. I shouldn't have.
I can understand other fans hating Richmond for many things, but arrogance? After 37 years of incompetence?
And I still wonder about his Tom Lynch comment. Really don't see much difference between us getting Lynch and Geelong getting Dangerfield.
Geelong fast getting to the top of my list.
You're the long forgotten 3rd Scott triplet?If we manage to go back to back next year, which I'm very much hoping for. You can quietly point out to your Moggies mate that we've achieved something their super team of a few years ago failed at.
I've got a couple of Moggies brothers, one is happy enough for the Tiges to have their era of success especially after all the floggings we used to get off them. The other brother is typical Moggie. Can't believe we've won two flags with our crap list, doesn't rate our game style or list quality ( loathes any comparison of Tross man to Scarlett ) n reckons it's purely because of Dusty that we play finals at all.
Yep agree on both counts.North would easily be my most despised team. I believe their words during our SOS campaign were “Any club that can not stand on their own without VFL support should shut their doors”. North publicly advocated that our beloved club cease to exist. Hypocritically they have their hand out and without AFL support they would cease to exist and personally hope that day comes sooner than later.
I don,t dislike Collingwood. Prior to our SOS campaign Collingwood hit hard times and Richmond gave them some money to help them. When we announced our predicament Collingwood gave us back the money we had given them and then some extra, hard to dislike a club that without question help our club survive.
For whatever reason (the amateur psychologist in me says it's something to do with their own lives), people resent success.I can understand other fans hating Richmond for many things, but arrogance? After 37 years of incompetence?
