Tom Lynch Incident (incl. Dimma vs The Ox)

Is it possible that Richmond have finally gone properly ahead of themselves?

Would be hilarious if they now dropped a couple of their upcoming games, whether it's Freo or Essendon for the upsets or just some good solid failures against the eagles and cats.

Their top 4 ambitions already look shaky, any slip-up and it's an elimination final.

Wouldn't mind earning first shot at them, too.

Why bring up something that happened 20 years ago?What's crying got to do with lynch having cheap shots off the ball? David called him a boofhead. No need to get personal dimma. Also where is the proof that the ox was in tears? I've never seen footage or a photo. also so what if he was. Does Dimma have an issue with grown men crying? 

Seriously his mouth works quicker than the brain. A few times he has been in trouble. Don't forget the whole longmire incident this year.

Exactly. Maybe someone in the media should remind Hardwick of that incident and why Schwarz was so upset ("crying")

What I find interesting about this particular clip is not that Lloyd squibs, but that big tough man Wallis seems to break a nail and is pretty upset about it.

A pity that football club isn't defunct.

*sigh* Damian, remember the time 20 years ago, where you held a defenceless 18yo up to a then 30yo to get punched to the head neck and face on the football field in a 2v1?

Oh, yes different times etc etc

I don't understand why there is angst on the thread around Wallis punching Green in the throat. Dusty does it every other week and only cops a fine, if anything.

Hardwick has gone several rungs down the ladder in my estimation on this. He needed to point to all the media noise being a learning opportunity for Lynch who has played too close to the line and transgressed - rather than retaliating - and esp. getting personal. What a [censored]. He could learn a thing or two from Goody in this respect.

Why do people criticise Michael Christian? He's a bureaucrat with very little discretion. 

Putting a different person in that position wouldn't change anything, would it?

There was another camera angle.  They only showed it once, iirc a least a quarter later.  Shows Long lining Simmonds up from 20-30 metres away charging full tilt for the hip to the top of the head.  An absolute disgrace.  Never cared what anyone said since - despise Long.

Never liked the softing of Hardwick name to the friendly, Dimma, especially by non Richmond fans. Interesting that yesterday Richmond stood down dozens of staff. Is the stress showing now. I have never forgiven the AFL for not investigating a future Grand Final send off rule after that. For us younger members it would be like AVB holding an 18 year olds arms while Steven May punched to vunerable body parts. It was not your typical AFL punch but more like a street fighter who revelled in the violence. As for whether Schwarta cried. Well 20 years ago that might have carried weight with some but more embaressing for Hardwich than Schwarta to bring up now.

Personal insult to the Ox.  Professional insult to fellow coach, Horse a few weeks ago.

Leopards don't change their spots:  once a thug, always a thug.  He has simply changed his weapon.

Hardwick has become my least favourite coach bringing what those dirty flogs did in the 2000 grand final into this.

I have certainly lost some respect for him, Chris Scott is still ahead though.

Yeah nah I've got no time at all for Hardwick on this.

His full forward is developing [censored] tendencies, and so is he.

The blatant hypocrisy of telling the football world not to judge Lynch on his two separate indiscretions but then to distract from Schwarz's comments whilst referring to something that happened 20 years ago is as stark as it is dumb.

It only gets worse when you analyse it further and realise what he's referring to is a series of Essendon players being flogs.

Couldn't agree more, he did a dog act that day and deserved to be cleaned up. Schwartz and Dimma. You'd have to think Dimma is fitter but I God 20 years later I still want him to smash half the Essendon team.

I don't believe it is an insult to the Ox albeit intended.

It shows me that the Ox cared deeply.

If you look at both Hardwick and the Ox 

which one out of their replies through the media comes out smelling OK. 

I think it’s clear,  the Ox was raising something that was being discussed widely.   It was a cheap hit by Lynch

Hardwick resorts to personal retorts that remind all of his dubious past 

enough said !

This isn't a great sign for Richmond, TBH.

Some ageing footballers who have lost a bit of their youthful zip get frustrated because things are harder for them than they used to be. That's when you see little things like Ablett Jnr give a couple of little sneaky one where he never used to. It's usually an indicator that the veteran is just hanging on and they know they're not as good as their brain instinctively remembers itself to be.

Richmond have had some pretty dodgy moments this year. I dare say that things aren't as easy as they used to be and they're feeling very vulnerable. I think Dimma has just given about 8 other clubs a real shot of confidence with those (hilariously stupid) comments.

    THE ICING ON THE QUAKE by Whispering Jack

    It’s not Christmas yet but if the Melbourne wins its last game of the 2021 season, then many of its fans will be celebrating early. There already are some parts of our town where the pending festivity is preordained. Houses are decked out with red and blue banners and streamers, some of which appeared as early as last Saturday week, on the morning after the Demons’ magnificent 83-point crushing of Geelong in their preliminary final at Optus Stadium. While it’s great to see the numbers of lo

    CAT SKINNING by George On The Outer

    When they defeated the Geelong Cats in the 2021 AFL Preliminary Final on Friday night in Perth, Melbourne proved that there is more than one way to skin those cats.  They did it in the ruck and in the middle, they did it in the forward line, they did it in defence and around the ground, but importantly, each and every player a Demon guernsey spent his night at Optus Stadium skinning an opponent. Following the after-the-siren win against Geelong in Round 23, there was an expectation of

    THE POINTY END by The Oracle

    The AFL’s two oldest clubs, Melbourne and Geelong, face off on Friday evening in a sudden death Preliminary Final. It’s a game that promises plenty in terms of fascination and intrigue as a result of the rivalry that’s been building between the teams over recent encounters that have been tight struggles which have gone to the wire with two of them decided by after-the-siren goals. The added touch of mystery attached to this week’s meeting comes by virtue of the fact that it’s going to take

    THE VFL YEAR THAT NEVER WAS by KC from Casey

    The rising case numbers and the continuing lockdowns in Victoria and NSW spelled doom for the 2021 VFL season which went through a slow, painful demise before its recent official cancellation. After weeks of indecision, the AFL decided to pull the plug on the season with the 10-0 Bulldogs recognised as minor premier, but without a premiership cup and without awarding the J.J. Liston Medal for the best and fairest VFL player. It was somewhat fortuitous for the integrity of the competition t

    TAMING THE LIONS by George On The Outer

    With nine finals debutants in the side, the Melbourne Football Club had a daunting assignment ahead of it in the First Qualifying Final — to overcome the competition’s highest scoring side, the Brisbane Lions. In the end, the Demons accomplished the task by putting the bite on their opponents on their way to taming the Lions and recording a 33 point win that propelled them into one the two Preliminary Finals of 2021.   It was one of those debutants, Luke Jackson, who put the bite in more

    RETURN TO NEVERLAND by Whispering Jack

    The greatest Demon A HIGHWAY OF DEMONS by Whispering Jack CHAPTER SIXTEEN - RETURN TO NEVERLAND  I have a six year old grandson who recently took up the family tradition of following the Demons. He had his first taste of the game a few years ago when he went to the “G” with his parents to watch the 107-point massacre of Carlton and he went to another game in the following season which was also a W for the Dees. But his appetite for the club has grown exponentially this year and wh

    METAMORPHOSIS by Whispering Jack

    I’ve always believed that when the home and away matches come to an end, the football season takes on a completely different shape and character. During the regular season, each team’s goals progress as the weeks pass and if you’re good enough to survive and make the grade, the situation changes. The comparison can be made with the life cycle of a butterfly going through stages from egg to larva to caterpillar, cocoon and in the end to a bright and colourful creature that emerges from darkness i

    STEALING THE CATS’ CREAM by George On The Outer

    They were leading by 44 points well into the third quarter of a game to decide the minor premier, having kicked nine unanswered goals. The Cats were about to lap up their bowl of cream, dreaming of next week but the Demons led by Max Gawn had other ideas. In a stunning finish, they stole the game from under them to claim the plaudits as best team and top of ladder position. In a remarkable game, it all came down to Max having to kick the winning goal after the final siren, something which s

    SKIN THE CATS by Whispering Jack

    The task ahead for the Demons as they wend their way down the Princes Freeway to Geelong on Saturday night will be to skin the Cats. For them to come away with the points from this game would mark an historic occasion for the club as it will finish on top of the ladder for the first time since its last premiership year, 1964. And it was in that year, that a trip to Corio Bay to meet the reigning premiers in Round 12, was one of the catalysts for Melbourne’s surge to the flag. It was a top o

    REACH FOR THE STARS by George on the Outer

    It was a game of great significance for the Melbourne Football Club. A win would see them keep top spot on the ladder with one round remaining. To achieve top place in the Round for Reach when we are all inspired to “Be Like Jim” and reach for the stars was a great way of honouring one of our heroes. All the better given that it was done by way of an emphatic 41 point win against Adelaide! It is worth remembering that, but for the umpiring mistake in the previous encounter with the Crows, t

    TICKETS PLEASE by The Oracle

    A lot of water has passed under Princes Bridge in the five years since Melbourne last met Adelaide on the MCG. The Crows were riding high at the time while the Demons were mid-table and scrambling for a win to stay in the race for the finals. The 30,000 fans who had tickets to the game were thoroughly entertained by a close, high scoring affair that ended in tears for fans of the home team. Not even an eight-goal second term could help them.   Times have changed.    In the fi

    ELECTRIFYING by George On The Outer

    What more can they throw at the Demons of 2021? Covid restrictions, hubs, aircraft circling between airports before landing for games and now a match stopped for 30 minutes to give a flagging opponent its second wind? To date, none of those distractions has swayed the team from their winning objectives. The game against West Coast in Perth can be marked on their report card as another positive outcome after yet another test. There was much at stake for both sides.  Melbourne had t
