Sparrow, Clarrie and Fritta make that team better on paper, pig too. Going to have some selection headaches soon.

Easy one :

Sparrow for Harmes

Clarrie for JJ

Fritta for Wowoedin

 

Licking my lips. 😋

He is, but we are also a tall forward short.

See how many intercept marks Richmond got today in our forward line.

Keep Tomlinson back, drop Harmes/Woewodin/Jordon and move Smith forward.

 

His name is Robert Paulson.

Sorry, that's a glitch.

His name is Brody Grundy

Good win, they came hard and like the crows did with us last week we just never let them get away when things weren’t going our way.

We are an experienced side and stood up when we needed to. Some very important players hitting form at the right time.

Clarry, Fritsch and Sparrow all to come in. Forward line mix today with Fritsch added is probably the one we go with

Watch the” Petty can’t play forward” posters jump on the bandwagon now.

It's not about whether or not he can play forward, it's about what it does to the backline when he does. Thank god Lynch (and Nankervis) were out.

Swings and roundabouts.

A highly entertaining game.

 

I was worried at times!

Glad the Demons got the job done.

A great win!

 

GO YOU MIGHTY DEMONS!!! 🔴🔵👹

We didn’t just get the job done.  They were desperate, and we ‘broke’ them!

Fantastic last quarter but until then our midfield and defence lacked pace and co-ordination. Outstanding displays by Max the Magnificent and the much-maligned Petty (six shots, six goals). Melksham's skills with both feet proved invaluable with two crucial goals from acute angles.

We now need to win only two more games to clinch a top-four spot. Win all four and second place is possible. Altogether a superb round of results for us, and we still have Oliver and Fritsch to come back. I reckon Joel Smith's pace and ability to read the play earned him a chance to start ahead of Tomlinson next week.

And to put some icing on the weekend cake,  Freo's upset win failed to lift them on the ladder.

I can put my hand up as being in that camp, but to be fair no one saw this coming. Nothing he’d done playing fwd this year gave any indication he had a game like that in him.

Can't agree with that. He looked like he was going to rip the game apart before he was injured the last time he played fwd.

I saw it coming, and there's more to come

Was tommo subbed off injured or tactical? Missed it at the ground...

 

Tactical I believe. He didn't look that happy after the game. It was as if he saw his chance of playing finals slipping through his fingers. I feel sorry for him.

They threw everything at us, but we stood tall and found our best forward line combination for the year with Petts, Roo, and Melky!

Agree to disagree, didn’t read any comment in the pre game thread that had Petty kicking a bag. I’m glad that he did. I just find it childish when people want to carry on with their “to those who doubted…..”, footy’s an emotional game. I was wrong and I’m happy I was.

Thanks to Richmond and the MFC for a seriously entertaining match. Was introducing the sport to my Albanian hosts and not embarrassed at all. They loved it. Plus Yze! We have at least six new fans - but I think I can convert the whole village.

Melky weighted and change of angles work. Salem has his individual program. White cap (no contact), Howes, Woewodin and Sparrow

    GALLANT by KC from Casey

    The world “gallant” is not one that is readily acceptable to losing teams in our game of football so when it was used in the context of the Casey Demons’ loss to Sandringham in yesterday’s match at Casey Fields, it left a bitter taste in the mouth.  The Demons went into the game against the St Kilda affiliated Zebras with the advantage of playing on their home turf (not that this has been a major asset in 2024) and with very little else going in their favour. The Saints have close to a full

    MEANWHILE by Whispering Jack

    … meanwhile, at about the same time that Narrm was putting its feet on the accelerator to obliterate the long-suffering Euro-Yroke combination, I heard someone mention in passing that Kuwarna was leading Waalitj Marawar by a whopping 46 to 1 halfway through the second quarter of their game over in Adelaide. “What is football coming to?” I asked myself.  In front of my eyes, the Demons were smashing it through the midfield, forcing turnovers and getting the footy to their forwards who w
