Richmond Supporters

Like others here, I respect Tiger fans for staying staunch in hard times, but tell me, is there a more pig ignorant bunch of supporters for any club?

Their ridiculous cries of 'ball' every time an opposition player is tackled are simply pathetic.

I think it is more out of desperation to see their team come back into the contest.

I'm sure some will be crying foul with the umpires today, but we had just as many 50/50s going against us, particularly early on in the match.

I had the pleasure of sitting behind 4 teenage boys, with the combined IQ of a cockroach. They got stuck into everyone from Jack Watts to Jim Stynes. It took a lot of self control not to punch them all in the head.

I appreciate the passion that Tigers' supporters show, but these guys made singing the song after the game just that much sweeter.

Shameful to think that these idiots are the future of our country, I'd be surprised if they know how to count to 10.

Conversely, I had a whole bunch of Toiges supporters around me and they were okayish, but there were a few unsavoury comments. Agree, the song was sweet, but for me, the highlight was paying homage to Jordan McMahon for delivering us 'The General' Jacky T. There were a few quiet murmurings after that...it was great!

I have a friend who is, without doubt, one of the best blokes you could ever meet, who is a Richmond supporter. He claims that being put in the same collective group as other Richmond supporters is more difficult to endure than the Tigers' woes over the years.

Sat next to a really friendly, though rough-as-guts looking, tiger supporter at ground level of the Ponsford stand. To my surprise, out of nowhere he greeted me 'good luck' before the game, and shook my hand after the match to congratulate me/us. What a lovely bloke. Totally changed my preconceived ideas about RFC supporters...

this s how dumb they are some guy called MMM and said if they had been given the freekicks we were they would of won by 12 goals......hahahahahaha

Heard that. There was stunned silence before Gary answered. Absolutely brainless.I couldnt believe how they walked out before the siren.The team at least played right to the very end but they couldn't even stay to support their own. Obviously thought they were a shoe in to win.

The umpiring was pretty average all game, but it was no consequence to the result. If we kicked straight we would've rolled them by a million points.

The fact that they were screaming for holding the ball so much is an indictment on them for not having possession enough!

Sat in the Richmond members area with some friends down in the pocket in the old Olympic stand, about 15 minutes into the quarter i spotted a young fellow MFC supporter who i normally sit with at home games.

He had been sitting up the front, but when i spotted him he was retreating away from the boundary because he was copping too much abuse from the people around him; so we shuffled over and he sat with us for the game about 10 rows back. Even there we still copped the typical "Go home you filth" all game.

While we clapped and cheered the goals and stood up for the courageous umpires and some of their finest work, we were not untoward or overtly ignorant/arrogant in any fashion. Yet with 15 minutes to go in the final quarter, one of the Richmond faithful decided that on his way out up the stairs, he would stop and throw his half full cup of beer in our faces before running away up the stairs.

Clearly not all supporters can be generalized by his actions, but what a pack of feral scum bags we sat with today.

We were enjoying ourselves last qtr singIng ou regular soccer chants when some Rfc supporter threatened to take me outside. Other Rfc supporters backed me up saying he was way out of line. I then saw him at the cricketers arms where he totally retreated NO harm dOne. Stay strong ye faithful the best is yet to come

I heard him (on the car radio in the carpark!) too, and the both of us had a good laugh over that! Yes, there were some funny decisions, but they went both ways, we got some we probably didn't deserve, but so did they. So the umpiring really had no effect on the contest. Go to the HS website and have a laugh reading all the Tigers supporters blaming the umpires for their loss today. The Tigers played well I thought, we just played better. :lol:

Pretty ridiculous to have preconcieved ideas about any supporters, and even more ridiculous to have one person change them. I have been to games against all teams where I came away thinking they were the worst of the worst, and I have been to game where I came away thinking they were all lovely. I've seen MFC supporters who I wouldn't even talk to let alone befriend, and I've met filth supporters who are awesome people. And for the record, I don't own a Chalet at Mt Hotham, drive a Range Rover or live in Toorak.

Can't wait for the follow up to this post when you realize your wallet is missing.

I took my 15yo cousin who is a Richmond supporter (most of my family are), and there was a split second hand laid on Nicholson, I'm talking one tenth of a second, when my cousin and a chorus of the toothless yelled "ball!" Nicho was long gone dashing through the middle... I looked at my cuz and we both laughed, he realizes how stupid his tribe is.

The funniest thing I've heard in a long time was a toigs fan ringing triple M saying if it wasn't for the umpires Richmond would have won by 12 goals...... he's trippin'

I think Nicho broke every Richmond tackle didn't he...Top game from number 49. Go Dees.

    THE BLOW by Whispering Jack

    Narrm’s finals prospects took a crushing blow after the team’s insipid performance at Optus Stadium against a confident Waaljit Marawar in the first of its Doug Nicholls Round outings for 2024.  I use the description “crushing blow” advisedly because, although the season is not yet at it’s halfway mark, the Demons have now failed abysmally in two of their games against teams currently occupying bottom eight places on the ladder.  The manner in which these losing games were played out w

    HALF FULL by KC from Casey

    It was a case of the Casey Demons going into a game with a glass half full in their match up against the Brisbane Lions at Casey Fields on Saturday. As the list of injured and unavailable AFL and VFL listed players continues to grow and with Melbourne taking all three emergencies to Perth for the weekend on a “just in case” basis, its little brother was always destined to struggle. Casey was left with only eight AFL listed players from who to select their team but only two - an out-of-form

    GAMEDAY: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    It's Game Day and the Demons have returned to the site of their drought breaking Premiership to take on the West Coast Eagles in what could very well be a danger game for Narrm at Optus Stadium. A win and a percentage boost will keep the Dees in top four contention whilst a loss will cast doubt on the Dees flag credentials and bring them back to the pack fighting for a spot in the 8 as we fast approach the halfway point of the season.

    WARNING by William from Waalitj

    As a long term resident of Waalitj Marawar, I am moved to warn my fellow Narrm fans that a  danger game awaits. The locals are no longer the easybeats who stumbled, fumbled and bumbled their way to the good fortune of gathering the number one draft pick and a generational player in Harley Reid last year. They are definitely better than they were then.   Young Harley has already proven his worth with some stellar performances for a first year kid playing among men. He’s taken hangers, k

    OVER YET? by KC from Casey

    The Friday evening rush hour clash of two of the VFL’s 2024 minnows, Carlton and the Casey Demons was excruciatingly painful to watch, even if it was for the most part a close encounter. I suppose that since the game had to produce a result (a tie would have done the game some justice), the four points that went to Casey with the win, were fully justified because they went to the best team. In that respect, my opinion is based on the fact that the Blues were a lopsided combination that had
