They demolish that stand I bring on the Jack Dyer curse, they'll never win another flag, ever.

Knock it down!

Richmond's threat to leave Punt Road if they don't get their way seems hollow to me.

They would be the only ones to suffer if they took that action so the threat is meaningless.

A long time ago my father told don't make a threat unless you have the will to carry it out

If Richmond FC can’t obtain approval to redevelop the site, how could we?

How is it they have been promised $30M for a project that hasn't started, while we have only crickets chirping for a project that hasn't started?

It's pretty bloody annoying to say the least. I know the club is doing everything it can but man the lack of announcements with all the money being thrown around by the fl o g pollies at the moment is disheartening.

So they leave, it's no big deal.

Collingwood left Vic Park...the council can make it a community hub and play local footy there.

Take down the fences...walk the dogs.

It's not much of a threat...what do the City of Melbourne get by having Richmond at Punt Road?

If they open the Punt road oval and increase the community park land, could this override residents arguments against a development over the train line with a training oval being included at that location in the park land.

Richmond are seeking to make the ground larger by knocking down the old grandstand. If they don't succeed and end up moving why would we replace them and revert back to an undersized oval after getting Goschs made bigger?

Yep end of the day we can shift to a ground that’s smaller than the G. We’d have the exact same problem as them. Unless we’d have a better plan of shifting the stand without demolishing it and still being able to create it as our own training facility it’s not the solution to our home base problems. 

Would love to get an update on our facility though, feels like this has been dragging forever.

They still managed to win 3 premierships recently and 5 others since they moved there home games to the G.

They increased the size of the oval in 2012/2013 to the same size as Marvel stadium 159m x 124m yet complain they cannot play well at Marvel, so if the increase the size to 160m x 141m its 1 meter shorter which means half a meter shorter from the center to the goal line and 17meters less width.

The stand has been there since 1915 which is a heritage that the club cannot and should not destroy, seem we destroy history for development in all suburbs and replace them with new building without any character.

We could continue using Goschs for training and have our staff based at Punt Rd instead of AAMI Park

Wouldn't happen but it could definitely work if it had to

If there is no money for us in this weeks state budget there will be some big questions to be answered.

There are a lot of late Victorian/federation grandstands in perfect condition all over suburban and regional Victoria which have a much richer history than the Punt Rd Jack Dyer grandstand. I definitely don't think it is the best example, and its heritage value is not strong. If Richmond want to leave it (and I am convinced they absolutely do NOT want to) I hope it becomes an open public space with its Narrm heritage celebrated as mentioned by Bush Demon above. Great idea.

But no way as a Dees HQ.

Anything that moves us from Casey back to Melbourne should be considered imo

Why?  didn't we just win a flag from there and will give another a shake this year.

There are many reasons - train in Melbourne, build up supporters, more people can go to training, connect with the city of melbourne, players don't have to drive 2 hours to get to training. would be great to have our 2nds play in melbourne too so more people can go to games, plus the AFLW team has a chance to get some more people to go to the games and build a supporter base

    TOUGH KENT'S TRAINING REPORT I journeyed out to Casey today and was fortunate enough to watch two quarters of match simulation. Here is a brief rundown of random occurrences/thoughts. First of all, there was no Jake Lever (ankle) or Joel Smith involved. AMW is still in rehab and was running strongly. It was Blue (Probables) v Red (Possibles) JvR was in blue. Ben Brown, T-Mac, Hibbo and Tom Sparrow were in red. Gus Brayshaw started at half back for blue and stayed there all game.

He’s moving incredibly well.  Some observations from a match sim drill that lasted about 15-20 mins. The purpose se
