Was there as well. Hoggy missed a shot from 30 meters on the slightest of angles after the siren that would have won us the game. GUTTED!shamekha said:my worst was a game in the early 90's vs Nth Melb at Princes Park.. A very cold day. Not may people
We hadn't beaten them for ages, always getting thumped and went down by less than a goal i think not exactly sure, but i know it wasnt very much. We came home with a wet sail and had many chances to win in the last quarter.
I had never been so disappointed that day and have never been since.. i was absolutely gutted :'(
i think Scotty Turner kicked a few that day...
I was at a 40th that night and the guys felt they had to play it on a big screen and feed it to me. I copped an awful bucketload. Then West Coast went on to win the wooden spoon. The silence was deafening.Gnarley said:I went to see Dimma's 1st NAB Cup game as coach @ Aurora Stadium. I was in excruciating pain after 1 minute of play :'( It was embarrassing.
We got stitched up anyway since Collingwood needed to beat Fitzroy at Victoria Park (which most assumed would happen). Collingwood kicked just a solitary goal for the day until, during the last quarter when it was apparent Richmond would go down, they booted a few late ones to add some respectability. Several in the media suggested it was payback for the 1980 Grand Final.*smile*el said:Going back a little, way before i was old enough to drive - i remember listening to the round 22 game v Carlton 1981. We had to win to make the finals and from memory a few other results go our way. Considering how far we won the 1980 premiership by, i fully expected us to extract the digit and walk through the finals if we made it in. As it turned out we only managed 5 or 6 goals for the whole game and never looked like it. Carlton didn't score much more, preferring to try to lock us down.
Was that a final round game? I don't recall the details you mention. If it's the game I'm thinking of it must have been a Dees home game. It didn't bode well for us. They had cavalcades, pom pom girls and heaps of hoo ha going on...always a bad omen for us I reckon. A Richmond lady behind us was extremely drunk and kept yelling out abuse about Diamond Joe. She was evicted, dragged out screaming and abusing. She left a bag of purchases from the Tiger Den, including a good jacket. We handed it in the the powers to be but they told us to keep it because they'd never find the owner. I left contact details requesting they pass them on if she tried to find her things but never heard anything.Al Bundy said:Also a game against Melbourne, we could lose by 37 pts and still get in the finals... yep lost by more ! forget the year
