I am no longer angry so now find the comment bizarre and the only way to understand it is through Hardwicks definition of manhood. I have knocked around blokes environments like a lot of others here but  I would not want my kids learning under him. Real old school Public bar rules around being a man which usually involved a powerful male belting an unfortunate smaller, often younger  person or blow in. Ring any bells Hardwick (Brad Green). 2000 was pure thuggery. On talent they would have beaten us nine and a half times out of ten.

Dear Abby,

I'm torn about who to barrack for in the Rich vs Ess game this week.  I usually have no trouble barracking for the team whose win is in the Demons' interest.   Advice please.

Yours,

Check this out, Hardwick’s response to criticism of tom lynch by David Schwarz 

https://wwos.nine.com.au/afl/tom-lynch-drama-gets-personal-as-richmond-coach-damien-hardwick-hits-back-at-david-schwarz-criticism/34108234-50cb-4e74-a9f0-e0e1886c4c3d

I’ve held Hardwick in some esteem for his efforts with the tigers, but these remarks display, at the end of the day, a fragile ego and a nasty streak.
Smugly sniggering at a football player showing emotion. Great message for the kids d***head.

Didn’t realise there was already a thread on this. You guys are all over it!

 

I've also respected Hardwick in his time at the Tigers. I also try hard not to let past experiences cloud judgements on players and coaches character. But bringing up something from 20 years ago? The ONE part of that triumphant game and season from the Bombers that they should be trying their hardest to suppress and forget? Not on.

The guy is clearly just defending his player, sure he's sacrificing his own reputation but that's his choice.

The Ox came back from 3 knee recos not to mention his serious gambling addiction.

Has Hardwick ever faced any adversity in his life?   Shameful comment from him

Adversity ??Yep small mans syndrome!! Angry at being a pretty limited player with zero skills but with a motor mouth! Had no comment to make to press when asked about the ugly incident of a few weeks ago. Firmly now entrenched as a hated football person. I wonder privately what Lynch's standing in the footy world would now be, particularly amongst the players. Well said Mitch R!!!

The problem in 2000 was that the Ox flew the flag 2 qtrs too late.
The game was long gone by then.
Shoulda been cracking skulls from the bounce.
Surely the club knew the Essendon thuggery was coming.
They'd been doing it to us for 20yrs prior.

As for Hardwick.
He spent his first 5yrs of post game press conferences in tears.
Glass houses and all that.

Was it Richmond and Essendon   that had a brawl during a finals game about 30 years ago ?   I know its not the South Melb bloodbath v Carlton (??) from the 1950's

My memory has gone now, once I stopped drinking too much beer,  

 

Not sure I respect Mitch Robinson, but it [censored] me off badly when he called us softy's  probably cos it was too close to the truth !!

Thanks, Windy Hill  therefore    Essendon v  ??      and only 46 years ago,      Demons were not playing very well in 74

I was sitting in the red seats back then, given up playing for a while, and the cheer squad, so I sat on the sensible side of the ground.

A very moving game...at one point half the players were over the boundary the other half were on the ground.......slight exaggeration.

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.

Agreed. Also like the the word [censored] is no longer censored.

Such a shame we have already played Richmond 

Such a Shame

Not so fast SWYL.

Lets knock them out in Week 1 of the finals.

An earlier poster here talked about Ox's physical trials and addisiction which he overcame to become an advoctae for the issue. Thats courage.

Hardwick and Lynch? Hitting blokes in the back of the head or guts when unprepared - weak.

Based on the Tige's President Peggie Lynnch's comment on the ABC this week, I suspect their Board isn't impressed.

    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
