250k over 5 years ($1mill) is a lot of money to turn down 'Abe', particularly in a career that could end with 1 injury or accident.

I understand completely where you're coming from Rjay, but i guess the question is going to be, is that 1 mil worth giving up a chance at a flag or consistent finals? reckon Pav or Roo would trade 1 mil for a flag?

it's just my opinion but if he went to Melbourne or Hawthorn he'd be playing in a finals side, and a genuine chance of playing in a premiership before he retires, that in itself would have to be a big carrot, and you could pretty confidently say Richmond are a little way off a flag.

The inference to be made, therefore, is that Prestia is an incomplete one.

Prestia is injury prone. He maybe just money motivated like Mitch Clark. Goddard was chasing Glory and walked out on his "mates"

Abe I think you are under valuing the Money angle and he might think the MFC's chance of a flag is still a long way off and the Hawks have started to fall.

He may also have a better idea on how his legs really are than most.

I doubt anyone would give up $1miilion for a flag.

That is just the view from our side of the fence IMO.

Yeah, i guess it's one of those things that would be a case by case basis, i fully understand the angle of a huge long term contract for an injury prone player being hard to knock back, look at Mitch Clark, he got what 4-5 million dollars for about 20 games over a 6 year period

Depends how injured he is. It may be entirely financial

If you think your legs have 2-3 years then a big salary and a 5 year deal would be very attractive

Yep I reckon that would depress me too!

I was going to nominate SWYL for a position on the Richmond Board, he has spent the last few years righting all the wrongs of his nemisis Cam Schwab on here, the experience he has gained would stand him in good stead to knock over Megan's brother

Maybe you should put your hand up Saty, as you seem to be the font of all wisdom.

Hahaha that is just so funny Satyr. 

You are just the ultimate Gag man

CS is another ego driven Tool, but i am sure you will find a counter point...

Quite telling - a table from the Rich Board challengers on botched recruiting:

The team.

 

Surely they're not trying that on?

That's a parlour game for bored supporters in the off season.

Yes, they may have ballsed up their recruiting. But to suggest the above is a possible game day lineup ... tell 'em they're dreaming!

Every club can groan about "the ones that got away". (Except maybe GCS/GWS where they had a bigger net than everyone else.)

Is this an example of the constructive thinking that this new board is going to indulge in?

Might as well put on a hair shirt and whip yourself with thorns for all the good it does.

There is no backwards. There is only forwards.

Completely agree TF. It's a cheap trick, unfortunately one that Richmond members will fall for. It appears things are going to get much worse at Toigerland before they get better.

Sorry SWYl, forgot what I type is usually not music to your ears

"In music, counterpoint is the relationship between voices that are harmonically interdependent (polyphony) yet independent in rhythm and contour. It has been most commonly identified in classical music, strongly developing during the Renaissance and in much of the common practice period, especially in Baroque music"

I am more pleased that it is off season, and all we (MFC) get is feel good stories such as Nev, shows we have moved forward...although a bit disappointed that the topic only got 6 replies

    PREGAME: Rd 11 vs St. Kilda

    The Demons return to the MCG to take on the Saints in Round 11 on the back of two straight losses in a row. With Jake Lever out with concussion who comes in and who goes out?

    VOTES: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    Last week Captain Max Gawn consolidated his lead over reigning champion Christian Petracca in the Demonland Player of the Year Award. Steven May, Alex Neal-Bullen & Jake Lever make up the Top 5. Your votes for the loss against the Blues. 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1.

    POSTGAME: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    Many warned that this was a danger game and the Demons were totally outclassed all game by a young Eagles team at Optus Stadium in Perth as they were defeated by 35 points.

    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

    CENTIMETRES by Whispering Jack

    Our game is one where the result is often decided by centimetres; the touch of a fingernail, a split-second decision made by a player or official, the angle of vision or the random movement of an oblong ball in flight or in its bounce and trajectory. There is one habit that Melbourne seems to have developed of late in its games against Carlton which is that the Demons keep finding themselves on the wrong end of the stick in terms of the fine line in close games at times when centimetres mak
