I wonder if this might prompt a change of tact, and result in Prestias offer being taken off the table and Pick 6 being used at the draft where it should be

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.

Yeah, that our game!

Whatever happens, no way Hardwick is still coaching Richmond by the end of 2017.

Hardwick is just hanging tough for the fat payout for when he is eventally sacked. No value in resigning.  He knows that a coach with his record cannot last.

They should employ the Lions Board as they will be looking for new jobs, they also recognise uselessness and can the club in a position of you beaut draft picks. I forgot can lead to the sacking of their coach…………….. mm  that was MFC once. We got Neelded.

The administration is not lacking, it's a lack of decent players that's going to hold them back for years.

The administration is responsible for this too.

Brown-nosing the coach and Footy Dept didn't work too well for us either in 1982, 1983, 1996, 2001, 2003, 2010.

Just saw Dr Hiscock on The Couch and he sounded like some of the delusional flogs on here.

It's extraordinary hearing smart men sound like dopes when it comes to footy.

Extraordinary ?? ..... Heartening !!!^_^

Remember the old cliche, footy is a great leveller.                               It has always been regarded as a virtue that people irrespective of their education or position can talk the same language, and I guess you may say, all sound like fools.

Hasn't spoken to Balme but Balme will go to Richmond because "he's a tiger at heart." If I were Balme and watched that or any other interviews with Hiscock, I would stay well clear.

Richmond have posted 11 straight years of operating profits, with a 500k profit in 2015 and 1.3m in 2014. Not only that, but they have over 23 million dollars of assets and are completely debt free.

Yet, they want to boot out this board who has delivered profits because they haven't won a flag? Brisbane will tell you that winning flags doesn't inflate the bottom line.....

Just like Brendan Gooddard walking into Essendrug...Bahahahaha

The one I've enjoyed this season is Daly Cherry-Evans in league. Signed a 4 year deal with Gold Coast, pulled the pin due to instability at Titans and resigned with Manly with a hefty pay rise after Foran left. 

Manly struggled all season and Titans are in the finals haha.

It also highlights how quickly things change. From finals contender one year, when everyone was talking them up and the start of the season when Tigers supporters were again looking to the season with optimism and another finals appearance. They may have been overrated and the seeds of their demise may have been seen from their list, their coaches, whatever, but not many predicted such an implosion. 

Its a lesson that tells us that success can sometimes be fleeting and footy supporters should not get ahead of themselves. The optimism at MFC will quickly be wiped if we have a poor year under Goodwin. Injuries, players not living up to expectations, can quickly destroy a season. And when that happens things turn pear shaped.

For all those getting a vicarious pleasure out of watching the Tigers problems, be careful what you wish for. And don't forget where Melbourne has come from. We are still a long way from getting out of the woods ourselves.

    FROZEN by Whispering Jack

    Who would have thought?    Collingwood had a depleted side with several star players out injured, Max Gawn was in stellar form, Christian Petracca at the top of his game and Simon Goodwin was about to pull off a masterstroke in setting Alex Neal-Bullen onto him to do a fantastic job in subduing the Magpies' best player. Goody had his charges primed to respond robustly to the challenge of turning around their disappointing performance against Fremantle in Alice Springs. And if not that, t

    TURNAROUND by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons won their first game at home this year in the traditional King’s Birthday Weekend clash with Collingwood VFL on Sunday in a dramatic turnaround on recent form that breathed new life into the beleaguered club’s season. The Demons led from the start to record a 52-point victory. It was their highest score and biggest winning margin by far for the 2024 season. Under cloudy but calm conditions for Casey Fields, the home side, wearing the old Springvale guernsey as a mark of res

    POSTGAME: Rd 13 vs Collingwood

    Once again inaccuracy and inefficiency going inside 50 rears it's ugly head as the Demons suffered their second loss on the trot and their fourth loss in five games as they go down to the Pies by 38 points on Kings Birthday at the MCG.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 13 vs Collingwood

    It's Game Day and the Demons are once again faced with a classic 8 point game against a traditional rival on King's Birthday at the MCG. A famous victory will see them reclaim a place in the Top 8 whereas a loss will be another blow for their finals credentials.

    BOILED LOLLIES by The Oracle

    In the space of a month Melbourne has gone from chocolates to boiled lollies in terms of its standing as a candidate for the AFL premiership.  The club faces its moment of truth against a badly bruised up Collingwood at the MCG. A win will give it some respite but even then, it won’t be regarded particularly well being against an opponent carrying the burden of an injured playing list. A loss would be a disaster. The Demons have gone from a six/two win/loss ratio and a strong percentag

    CLEAN HANDS by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons headed into town and up Sydney Road to take on the lowly Coburg Lions who have been perennial VFL easy beats and sitting on one win for the season. Last year, Casey beat them in a practice match when resting their AFL listed players. That’s how bad they were. Nobody respected them on Saturday and clearly not the Demons who came to the game with 22 players (ten MFC), but whether they came out to play is another matter because for the most part, their intensity was lacking an
