Nominations for the new Richmond Board

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.

    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
