  1. Is Goodwin the right guy....

    We had passengers as far as i could tell, tonight. Its time for ANB to get to Casey: Out Also Garlett wants a shake up at Casey.: Out Harmes another off key: Redemption card. Kent good early, but injured: Out. MaX Gawn, if you cannot take more than a minimum of 8 marks each and every game, your no use to the team. you again only grabbed 6 lousy marks for a whole game with you mostly on ball. We need marks in the midfield... and then to distribute with precision from this team. The midfield is OUR weakness. We do not, as Lingy was saying tonight, we do not get our ball out of within that corralled contest. We win the contested ball, then cough it straight back up again, with poor setup and execution of ball movement. The transition when we have possession across our centreline is just pathetic. this is the sole reason for our struggle. Poor ball use in transition.

    They are a Genuine footy club, that is always open to all its faithful supporters. all access. They can go to Punt Rd, the spiritual home of that club. always has been their home and always will be,,, in the 'heart' of Richmond. The live there, they breath there, they train there, and they party there; they also bereave there... just as a community does together. They are family, there. We have to get to that point. As the city has grown to be more than suburbs, we have dee-minished. because we do not have that communal feel. "That belonging" that supporters want to feel, indeed are longing to feel. .
  3. Nah, I think its the opposite. I think he knows its for one game only this time around. I think TMc is due back in,,, against the bummers, 5 days after we play the Tiges. Sam will go back to Casey, after the D's/Tiges match.
  4. They weren't expecting, 'from him', they were investing in him. the expectation will arise when he's ready,,, to pay some back. Installments, hex, whatever you want to call it. We are paying now to teach him. to develop him, so he can return favour. he didn't arrive gift wrapped. Is Fritz ready? is Salem ready, is Wagner ready? is stretch ready? Was Oscar ready in 2016/17 ? Was Gawn ready in 2015 ?

    Caseys food leaves them all behind.
  6. Flat Track Bullies?

    He's never been right spuda, ever since Dermie left him face down in the mud.
  7. Is Goodwin the right guy....

    I reckon most of the supporters, from decades back after we were a power club, left within that next 12 years or so. I think we haven't been able to hold onto our supporters, those who will not take losing lying down,,, from a losing mentality club. Now I know this new breed coaches/admins with us now, are AFL endorsed..... so we can be realistically trusting... but the future? SO the now.. goody was the right coach for us last year with injuries, and so he still is the right coach for us in 2018 +... to manage this club over the next couple of years. Lets revisit this coach scenario in 2020.... unless Clarkson wants to leave the Squawks.
  8. Flat Track Bullies?

    IF we're ever going to become a top Power club, then we have to EAT UP this sort of media garb',,, and spit back in their faces. Via onfield actions. and OFF-Field as well with our admins. Not come onto the forums whinging about the media. This stuff should be fire for our Hunger. not a bellyache.
  9. Flat Track Bullies?

    With respect, I think the term with "bullies" is just wrong, when used for the Melbourne footy club. We are not bullies in any sense within the AFL. I wish we could be termed bullies on the field, but sadly we are not. Front running team, yes, we go well when our opponents do not. But when the torch is applied, we go missing. This is what we have to change out our spots for,,, scales, not fur.
  10. Time to show Oscar some respect!

    not looking with an open viewpoint. looking thru a glass onion. so many can't see, what they do not want to see. the forward who maybe a defender in waiting. or the defender who maybe a wingman?
  11. Richmond VFL v Casey Demons - Round 3

    there's no 'A', yet. experimenting. searching for the balance; How can we have a set plan a or b,,, when we aren't yet settled Re best 22, as regulars. Its too soon. We will make finals without a real setup. Just not in stone, yet.
  12. Richmond VFL v Casey Demons - Round 3

    I think Weide will play Tuesday,,, and I have the feeling TMC will play the following match against the bummers with Weide back at Casey.
  13. Richmond VFL v Casey Demons - Round 3

    why for saying our gameplan is not as it was 11 years ago junior... you must start taking your angry pills jMc new playing list. And new coach means new game-styles, which also will change as the new coach keeps up with trends.
  14. Richmond VFL v Casey Demons - Round 3
