    He has so much talent, but no physicality. Granted the conditions didn't suit. But really. At least have a presence.

    some of you people here seriously need to neck up! first of all the conditions were atrocious! did not suit our talls and skills were yes not that flash. 2nd its going to take us a couple of games to get our game plan up to scratch! dont expect for them to waltz onto the field and bang get it right first up! i actually found more positives then negatives tonight. and 3rd wtf is with comments like '' we are in for another long sufferiing year, or bring back bailey!! FFS its the first game of the year and a chance to blow out the cobwebs and gets some games and miles into most of the players! Gosh there are seriously some rosey eyed people on this forum...

    LOL! Did about as much as Jonathan Brown. Conditions were shite for a big man pushing up the ground.

    Was at the game tonight 1 win and 1 loss in shite conditions. If it wasnt pi##ing down it was as slippery as all hell. One of the things I noticed was that the Dees kept at it eventhough the ball was like a cake of soap. Amazing about how negative people are here. Its the first game of 2012. Settle down people. Davey looked to have his pace again, Watts was better in the 2nd game and the newbies did ok. Having seen the game I feel more confident about the Dees being more dare i say it COMPETITIVE. Heard Garlo has hurt his lower back, hope its not too bad, One thing that annoyed the crap out of me apart from the conditions was that after every GC/BL goal they played music and also at the start of each game they had a one min countdown on the score board. Very bloody annoying. Have faith my fellow Dees supporters we will be better than last season.

    Anyone still think he is a forward? Should be a very good backman, one of the best stoppers in the AFL, will never be a forward.

    Settle down mate. You will be able to book a great holiday to China really soon. It will be worth the wait.

    I wasn't. I would have been happier with a coach with a more attacking game plan. However, success is the most important thing.

    What????????? "Fact is that none of us know where things are at re an FOJ sponser. To say we don't have one is pure speculation" There is no sponser on the front of the jumper, that is fact, not speculation. Some of the crap that people write on this site is just plain stupid.

    I laugh at anyone who thinks Richmond's name belong with the powerhouse clubs. Jonny Pierik obviously hasn't paid any attention to the world of footy since 1990. The powerhouse clubs in Victoria are Collingwood, Essendon, Hawthorn and Geelong.

    Fantastic signs, brilliant tough grinding hit out in the RAIN. Should add to our fitness. Bate & Magner just what we need. Loved Nicho's game. Hate the format and some of the rules.

    Too bad I read Demonland earlier tonight, panicked, slashed my wrists, died, and missed the Mons come-back win.

    What ... a clever, tough-minded administrator who stops at nothing to help his club win premierships?

    Aren't we the first team to back up with a win? Pretty good conditioning if you ask me. The thing that frightens me is how panicked and unsettled we looked for most of those two games. Clearly that has a lot to do with trying to implement a new game plan, plus having nowhere near our regular side. Jamar played a half, Garland was taken off with a back injury (doesn't sound too serious thankfully), Sylvia only played one game, as did Green, as did Grimes, and Clark was taken off in the last half. More importantly, in the season proper, great tactical kicks that bring the ball inside our forward 50, are not going to be deemed a free kick to the opposition for going out of bounds. This is a completely different set of rules. What was good is the tackling and pressure on the opposition, right up until the last second. To come up against a fresh team and be completely outplayed, only to scrap out a win, was very good. Grimes was sensational when the game was there to be won, and that is why he is captain. A year out of the game, and his defensive punch then run on to help us get the ball forward to Sellar, was absolutely brilliant. So good to see him out there again. Howe and Bail who barely played were also very good, and will be a big part of season 2012 and beyond. All in all, heaps for us to work on, but also some positives.

    I'm devastated to see Aaron Hall scoring againt us. I really wanted us to pick him up.

    I understand your sentiment, especially an accountant's view, but do you ever get sick of this club kowtowing to all and sundry ? Do you ever get sick of following a club that's been 'nice' for 40 years ? A club that never steps on toes ? I'm sick of it. I'd rather have a real crack than wither on the vine.

    "Knock off their sponsors" because "that's how I roll" ? Reads to me like Easy E-Mac is planning a drive-by on one of our sponsors. Pets Paradise best be on the lookout for a slow rollin' Lexus leaning heavily to one side (not because of hydrollics, but because a fat bastard is driving it). No doubt Alan Didak will be riding shotgun. Bring it [censored].

    Eddie is apoplectic... So he is going to steal our sponsors, end our handouts, take the QB receipts, rape our women, and drink our mead!! Simple is as simple does.

    I think you have made your point Thomo....I suggest you ring our CEO Cameron Schwab and have a chat with him....eyeball to eyeball...otherwise give it a rest.... For the last time...Dealing with Asians takes time...they do not rush with the "Ferang" sorry that is Thai but the same culture difference. If this deal comes off it could set us up for a decade or more...
