Recommended Posts

Richmond Website -- BIG GUNS BACK-- HA HA HA.  !st game for Maric up against a fit and firing Max.

Deledio has only been kicking a full size football this week,1st game as well,underdone,must be desperate.(look who we have knocking the door down and can't get in)

If Tmac can hold Reiwolt this game has a thumping written all over it.

I think Richmond will come out much like Port did last night, fired up and attempting to be tough. Much like Port I can't see them being able to sustain that sort of game for four quarters. We've seen when we stick to our game plan and style we win games, we can't get sucked in like we did against Essendon. We must win.

Agree, another case of 1st qtr specialists. I agree, Tigers are mentally weak.

Things that should be taken into account

We're in better form than them.

We have a better spread of talent then them.

We've bettered them in recent years.

Things that shouldn't be taken into account

We haven't won two in a row for a while.

That Richmond are 1-3 and want to win.

The betting odds.

Looking forward to Buggy going straight to Cotch and giving it to him all night. So much ammo for a sledge thanks Brooke ha.

Or we could just bring in Clint Bartram for this one particular game. I am sure he would have a few interesting choice of words to Cotchin.

That slimey fellow Martin loves to play against us, he's a flat track bully and has loved pushing us around. We need to show him and his long arm up early and often.

I'm not sure why he likes playing us.  Out of all his opponents there is only one he has a worst record against.  

Another poster mentioned "consistency" and this is the key.

I believe we'll win comfortably if we bring the right effort as a collective.  The Tigers' game-plan is rubbish in 2016 (too slow), they have an inferior ruckman, they have poor inside mids, they don't have a quality small back and at a time when small forwards are wreaking havoc they're deficient in that area too.

Gawn is pivotal and so are Viney, Tyson and Jones, who should get well on top early.  If Garlett, Kennedy and Kent are 'on' I predict this game could get ugly for Richmond.  I seriously don't rate them.  

Like all games, the midfield is the key.

I keep thinking about how this game would feel to the tigers. They've been finalists for the last 2 years ( or is it 3) they won  9 or ten games straight to get there last year including beating the swans and hawthorn. Coach is under the pump. I think they're a stronger side with Deledio back in the mix and I think they ill come out breathing fire. Expect Jack watts to come under some physical heat early. 

 Im excited, not as confident as some here, but excited about the test this will be. At least I think they have the grunt to withstand a physical challenge. Our footy style looks better, the pace of ball movement seems like its arrived. Hoping we can stamp ourselves as arriving!! ( we're a long way off "arrived" yet) 

Good point. It is sobering to remember that it was Adelaide & West Coast that smashed them recently. I too am looking forward to being there tonight but unlike some I expect it to be close.

My predictions:

The Dees crowd will roar when the bells start tolling.

Dees by 36 points.

2 in a row.

I will have a good night.

Dustin will have a bad night.

The 'When will we break these embarrassing records' thread will go into meltdown.

Watts will become the smiling assassin.

Love that Vince and Garlett are back, rested and full of beans. Both are capable match winners on their day.

Nervous   yes  Hope we do not take it like the Essondum game,   We should win ! but we should have beaten the bummers

that aside

we are playing better footy than for many years,   a loss to north (top of the ladder) by only 5 points and 2 credible wins

That's quite good form much better than the tigers,

Our players coming back are good additions to a winning team,

The Tigers changes smell of desperation to get back a winning culture and if either Maric or Delidio are underdone

or get injured again. Then the Tiges are in more shite than a Werribee Duck.

I expect to win, perhaps 20 points, but I have been wrong before, many times !

GO DEES !!    Give em HELL !!

No reason why we don't come out to play right from the first bounce like last week as well. Collingwood were revved up last week too and we played hard .It sets the tempo straight away Don't give this mob a sniff of the ball and run them off their legs.

The media fuss around Deledios return is funny since our ins are better than theirs and happen to be two guys that will cause Richmond fits - they cant stop small forwards like Jeffy and Vince will either run riot in an attacking role or shut down Cotchin.. and run riot anyway

    CONSISTENCY by The Oracle

    "I think we have got a team that can win a premiership, and if we get in this year, I don't think there is a team that is going to want to play us. This year is not a write-off, I don't concede that. Not at all." — Collingwood President Jeff Browne. I love this sort of optimism from the Magpie President after his club’s eleven goal defeat at the hands of the fast rising Hawks. It’s consistent with the fighting spirit of the club that won last year’s flag.  I only wish I could say the s

    FEARS by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne’s worst fears about the absence of Max Gawn were realised when it received a shellacking from Fremantle’s ruckmen Sean Darcy and Luke Jackson who dominated the hit out tally in their game at Optus Stadium on Sunday by a massive 47 to 19. As a result, the 50-point deficit at the end of the game proved to be a loss that was long foreseen that was two years in the making and demonstrated a complete lack of hindsight and planning from the club. To add insult to injury, Jackson was a D

    RAIN CHECK by Whispering Jack

    The Frankston Dolphins broke a run of six straight losses against their neighbours, the Casey Demons and kept their hopes for a long-awaited return to the VFL finals alive with a 27 point victory over at Kinetic Stadium. Casey was welcomed to the Peninsula by grey skies, heavy rain and angry seas with threatening white-capped waves whipped up by gale force winds. After a slow start in the opening term when they failed to take advantage of the breeze, it appeared that the Demons had decided

    THE PEOPLE SPEAK by The Demonland Crew

    DEMONLAND - Good evening, Demon fans and welcome back to the Demonland 2024 Grand Final Podcast ... before we took that last phone call from a Demonlander, we were discussing how the club overcame it’s midseason slump, the season-ending injury to Christian Petracca and the loss for a brief period of skipper Max Gawn due to a  crack to the base of his right fibula, to slowly surge up the ladder turning our detractors into believers and how it ended the year triumphant in the finals with our capta
