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

    HORSING AROUND by George On The Outer

    Before the match it was claimed that Collingwood were a “one trick pony” side.  Well that one trick worked very well against Melbourne, as they extended their winning streak to 11 for the season. Meanwhile, the Demons continued to horse around with structures which simply haven’t been working. The one tall forward option with resting rucks failed yet again, in an almost identical manner to the game against the Bulldogs recently.  93 more possessions, 65 inside 50 entries 24 more than the op

    THE BUBBLE by The Oracle

    "I feel like we've got more than enough experience in close games. It'd be nice to win one by five or six goals and have that pulse lower a little bit late in games, but that's not our story." — Scott Pendlebury on the eve of his team’s forthcoming Round 21 game against Melbourne. When you read words such as these, you know it’s time for Melbourne fans to be humble. The old enemy is up and about while our mantle of invincibility has vanished into thin air. A Magpie win against the Demons wo

    ANCHORS AWEIGH! by George on the Outer

    So came the cry from the Dockers as the S.S. Fremantle set sail with the hopes of all of their supporters on board on the mighty ship. Their task was to do nothing more than to defeat the Melbourne side and a top four position on the ladder was assured. The problem for them was that their leaky boat came up against the mighty battleship - Team Demon and it didn’t take long after they left port for their vessel to develop a multitude of leaks. The first salvo was fired by First Officer

    SWEET SIXTEEN by KC from Casey

    The game was an uneven match up from the very beginning. The Casey Demons, representing an alignment between the reigning premiers Melbourne and the outer southeastern expansion area centred around a sprawling Cranbourne with its rapid population growth and the stand alone Northern Bullants from the inner north who sit at the foot of the VFL table. With 14 AFL listed players and a couple more having experience at the elite level opening with the breeze at their backs, the result was inevitable.

    THE HUNGER GAME by Whispering Jack

    The game may well have taken place a day short of ten weeks ago but the atmospherics surrounding Friday night’s match between Melbourne (then Narrm) and Fremantle are light years apart from those that prevailed when the teams last faced off the MCG in late autumn. On one hand, the Demons were in the midst of a 17 game winning spree that included a drought breaking premiership victory. On the other, the Dockers were coming off a six goal thrashing at Optus Stadium in teeming rain against a then s

    DOG-TIED by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons were extended early against rivals Footscray VFL in their matchup played in wet and greasy conditions at VU Whitten Oval on Saturday but, after establishing their authority in the second quarter, they were able to tie up their opponents at the end to maintain their undefeated run which now stands at 15.  The game began under grey threatening skies and the wet conditions turned the game into a tight slog with scoring kept down to a minimum. The Demons were held goalless agai

    DOG DAY by George On The Outer

    It is said that every dog has its day and that was certainly the case when the Western Bulldogs defeated Melbourne under the roof at the Docklands on Saturday night.   While the Dogs were certainly at the very top of their game, the same couldn’t be said of the Demons. All around the ground, dismal individual performances and dismal team performances were the order of the day.  Fans should have been worried right from the start as the game turned into a goal-fest. This is not their team’

    RAINING CATS & DOGS by Whispering Jack

    Despite winning their game in the Red Centre at the weekend, the consensus among the pundits is that Melbourne’s days in the sun are over. Ten rounds into the season, they were the competition’s top dogs and regarded virtually unbeatable but their recent form (three wins from the last seven games) has put them well below par, perilously clinging onto second spot on the ladder with storm clouds on the horizon. The air of invincibility that once surrounded them is gone and the Demons face a t

    THE KOZZY SHOW by George On The Outer

    Q: Melbourne is playing Port Adelaide at Traeger Park, Alice Springs and once again, it doesn’t have a properly functioning forward line — so from where were the goals going to come?   A: Kysaiah Pickett.     In a one man show in front of his adoring fans, he racked up six majors to give the Demons the edge in the game and to finally run out winners by 14 points.     The result could well have been very different without his efforts with Melbourne failing to score a major

    SWITCHING ON by The Oracle

    We can’t take anything for granted, can we? After all, the Melbourne that took Port Adelaide for a long ride around the Adelaide Oval in early April of this year and switched off late in the game is finding it difficult of late to switch back on. Apart from a stellar display against the Brisbane Lions a fortnight ago, the Demons have laboured during the middle part of the season and, with a tough draw ahead of them, have reached a critical stage of the season after their first flag in decad

    STORIES by KC from Casey

    There were more than a few stories about Friday night’s game between the Casey Demons and Geelong at GMHBA Stadium. The first was one of complete domination in the first quarter (six goals to nil), ascendency in the last (five to two) and the second was about the void in between (zero to seven). The third was about how, in the end, the Demons retained their unbeaten record despite the hell of a scare they had on the rainswept spaces of the Cattery. However, the story that folk might be

    NIPPED by George on the Outer

    Melbourne’s twenty eight point loss to Geelong down at Taxpayer Funded Park provided plenty of cat-nip for the Geelong fans and their team.  After all, the Cats go away thinking they have now got the Demons sorted after the embarrassments heaped upon them last season and their taste of this cat-nip will get even stronger in the coming weeks, courtesy of the AFL draw which gives them three more home games at the same venue in the six remaining rounds.  Yet Melbourne, despite this loss
