Personally would have a few positions different but still excited to see the season start and the new boys in action!

Personal best 22 would have been

B: Grimes, Rance, Short
HB: Houli, Astbury, McIntosh
C: Vlastuin, Martin, Grigg
HF: Caddy, Griffiths, Edwards
FF: Rioli, Riewoldt, Lloyd
R: Nankervis, Cotchin, Prestia

I/C: Castagna, Miles, Conca, Ellis

Taylor hunt shouldn't be best 22 and personally don't think there's a spot for both of Butler and Castagna

Only just realised because you highlighted it that Miles is emergency only?

Is that a surprise?

Honestly, he's one of those players that's good without being great. I'm a fan of the guy, but he was always gonna be one of those guys whose spot would come under pressure and was a little contentious to begin with (once Prestia/Caddy arrived). Didn't do much in preseason to cement his spot, so he'll be one who has to work his way back in and then impress to keep it week in, week out.

I certainly would have had Miles in ahead of hunt but unfortunately for Miles he's a one trick Pony. Contested in and under mid who  can't play anywhere else and he now has to compete with Dusty, Cotchin, Prestia, Caddy, Vlastuin who can all be versatile and go forward

Can't wait to see how we go tonight my biggest concern is our side looks very short on paper don't know if the blues are good enough to exploit this but better teams will

Agree about Hunt, I'd have Oleg or Short in ahead of him but I guess Hardwick believes we need a more lockdown defender

But really liked our small forwards last night, Rioli, Butler & Castanga looked good!

Well it is nice to see the Tiges have started the season with 2 wins and even nicer to see that there tackling is way above what they produced last season even my friend Edwards is getting involved , think we can beat the Eagles next week if we keep this intensity up  :)

Yep, it's early days but there is clearly a better game plan and intensity to the way we play.

West coast will be tough but they can be vulnerable at the G. Looking forward to it!

Don't think Ben Griffiths will get up to play this week, as he's had issues with concussion in the past.

Who comes in? Mabior Chol also suffered concussion in the VFL.

Ivan Soldo kicked four in the VFL imagine if he came in  :o Also got Ivan Maric and Todd Elton (who I didn't even realise was still on our list lol)

Little bit of extra interest in you boys considering you're our next opponents ;)

Couple of things; thoughts on Conca's new role across halfback? Is it working? Will it continue?

Jayden Short slotted into the Tigs defence and had 18 possies at 94%! Not bad in a pretty frantic game with a lot of skill errors. He appear in for the long haul?
Title: Re: Richmond 2017 H&A season
Post by: quinny88 on April 03, 2017, 04:41:15 PM
To be honest, I wouldn't even bother with another tall. I'd go Griff > Lloyd and just be smart about the way we go inside 50.
Our scoring is happening from manic forward pressure so it will play to our strengths going small. Only issue is that we wouldn't have a chop out for Nank in the ruck.

In response to you Ele, I think Concas been ok. Haven't noticed him that much to be honest . He's in a bit of no mans land at the moment with no obvious position for him to slot into.
Shorts kicking is elite, hence why he's trusted with a lot of the kick ins. Think he's pretty safe in the 22 and I was surprised when he wasn't named round 1.
Title: Re: Richmond 2017 H&A season
Post by: Nige on April 03, 2017, 07:35:00 PM
Shedda and Griff won't play this week, hip and concussion respectively.

Sounds like Marbz will play, I don't mind that. I'd prefer him over Soldo, Elton, Moore or Maric. Think we're better off going in smaller and trying to make it work though.

Post by: quinny88 on April 03, 2017, 08:56:55 PM
They've already put a line through Griff when it's only Monday?
Bit odd but I guess his history with concussion isn't great.

Whoever comes in is going to have to chop out in the ruck so I'd imagine Ivan or Chol come in and probably Lloyd for Edwards but I'd also look at Miles and play Dusty at FF

Yeah, they've already ruled Griff out.

I'd say Chol for Griff, Lloyd for Shedda and potentially somebody for Lambert who I reckon didn't do enough to keep his spot. Could be any number of guys - Miles/Kamdyn/Oleg all chances I daresay.

Didn't Chol get concussed as well ?
To answer my own question yes he did so he won't be playing Soldo kicked 4 goals looks like he will get a crack and Townsend had a good game in the mids and kicked 3 maybe it's time to give him another chance

You're right in that he did get concussed but the club themselves have said that he should be fine and is a likely inclusion. Soldo's still not ready I reckon, debuting him against West Coast could be disastrous.

Miles lost the plot last year and obviously not regained his mojo no mention of him in practice match summary and Townsend is hard at it and has had plenty of time to fix up his disposal might be very handy around the ball against the Eagles

It's on the injury report on the Website Shaker

“’Mabs’, with his concussion, has pulled up quite well . . . He’ll have to go through the standard testing protocol during the week, but given he’d had little history with concussion, we’d expect him to get up this weekend,” Burge said.

That surprises me it's almost automatic week off if you are knocked out cold and stretchered off but anyway someone has to come in our short team has worked so far but not replacing Griff is pushing our luck

4 games in 5 years, says enough really. And I reckon he's worse than McBean. Not sure how or why he's still on the list, but he's arguably playing for his career tomorrow.

Bit harsh. He's 3 games into a season with a new club. Prestia hasn't exactly set the world on fire either but they will both get better as the season goes on and they get used to the game plan and new team mates.

Not sure what sort of minutes he's spending in the middle but it seems to me that he's in the forward line most of the time.
What I do love is that even though he and Prestia haven't done anything major you can clearly see the difference it's made to Dusty and Cotch. Dusty fast becoming one of the best players in the comp and Cotchin finally getting back to his 2012 form again

I thought with his big body they would be using him more in the mids maybe he is a bit slow I noticed he got outrun by Rowe in R1 I am hoping he can become more consistent , we have had a great start big test against the Lions at home this week

Another gritty win. So impressed with the fight we're showing this year.
Can't ignore the first 3 quarters though. We were lucky not to be further down the way we were getting smacked in the midfield and inside 50s. Have to bring in some more grunt around the ball if we're going to get near the crows.
Vlastuin will be back for Markov and I would bring in Miles too.

Miles has been a shadow of his former self since last year hence why he is not getting a game and at some stage they need to give Townsend another crack fair enough his disposal last year was no good but keep seeing his name mentioned as being in the best in the 2's lately and we are going to need another hard nut to have any chance against Adelaide

Ageee about needing another big body mid in. But I think they'll give Miles a go first.

In another news, Griffo suffered another concussion. Shocking news firstly for him but we need him back desperately too.

Corey Ellis apparently BOG on the weekend is promising.

Heading to the great Adelaide Oval for the match and other than a crows win .......

I really looking forward to watching Dusty and also the Tex v Rance matchup.

Mostly though (Other than Tex) I really want the full field view on what Dannnn Rioli actually does! He just excites me, worth the admission fee plus the $29 beer just to see DR in the flesh!

I'm thinking either Brown or my boy Lairdy plays on Rioli. Personally I'd like Browny so Lairdy can do his thing!

Title: Re: Richmond 2017 H&A season
Post by: quinny88 on April 30, 2017, 09:50:29 PM
Reality check or did we expect it to go like that?
Such a fall off after quarter time but we're not the first and won't be the last team to get belted by the crows at Adelaide oval.

Morris was ordinary. Try's hard but just doesn't have the skill level required to be an AFL player.
We desperately need another Key forward. Having 1 tall isn't going to cut it, especially when it means Grigg has to go into the ruck at times. Griffiths is out indefinitely and Elton just isn't up to it so might be time to give Chol a chance. Also think Nank will get a week for that elbow so may need to bring big Ivan back in
Title: Re: Richmond 2017 H&A season
Post by: Nige on April 30, 2017, 11:03:18 PM
Honestly, that wasn't a complete disaster. Let's be honest for a moment, Adelaide are currently the best team in the comp by a mile right now and haven't put a foot wrong. They're absolutely proficient in every area of the ground. Kudos to them for being dominant. In a way, no harm done.

We had a very good first quarter which shows exactly what we're capable of. We kept up with them and were basically on top. ...and then we shat the bed like the Richmond of old. Nank's probably gonna cop a week I reckon, which means Ivvy will get a chance to show he's not completely washed up even though it saddens me to say I'm pretty sure he's cooked and not suited to the modern game. A number of blokes were ordinary and shouldn't have two bad games in a row. Wouldn't mind a hard call being made on someone like Brandon Ellis who has coasted along all season but it won't happen. Morris didn't really shut down Eddie like he was brought in to do, I think he loses his spot.

We definitely need another tall and somebody to pinch hit. Put your house on us going hard at some tall forward over the offseason (Schache?). The Elton experiment should be dead in the water, so I reckon it's time to give Chol a run. He's got the tools to be a decent ruck/fwd type and given the Dogs might be running with Tom Boyd as a ruck (dunno if Campbell comes back in or not), there shouldn't be too much to worry about if Chol doesn't hold his own.

If we lose to the Dogs next week, we drop down to 7th at worst which isn't a bad thing, but a win to steady the ship is exactly what we need otherwise tonight's loss and a loss next week could snowball into a brick wall.

Think Morris was playing more of a defensive forward role. Didn't work whatever the role was.

Personally I would go
Nank > Maric (if suspended)
Morris > Chol
But would also like to see Corey Ellis, Miles and Lloyd in the side. Can't make too many changes though I guess

Bit of drift backwards to old Tigers the last 3/4 's and there is no place for Morris in this team I thought he was being brought in to hard tag Eddie the sooner the coach wakes up to that the better

I didn't. His knee injury was pretty severe. I didn't expect to see anything amazing from him this season, maybe next year.

Prestia has been ok at at times but far from his best. Caddy is a mile off it and lucky not to be dropped imo.

The one thing I have noticed though is how much better Cotchin is playing as a result of having them in the team so that's been a big bonus

Very frustrating. Too many of the kids have hit a wall at the same time. They have to give them a spell.
What more does Lloyd have to do to get a game? He's in the best every week in the 2s.
I know they want to fast track some of our younger guys but they still have to give guys a spell when they are struggling to go and recapture some form and reward VFL form.

Out: Markov, Batchelor, Castagna, Butler
In: Lloyd, Miles, Prestia, Bolton

Yeah he can make some changes but I see the same things happening all over again , stringing together a group of good wins , losing close games against good teams , and finally the most frustrating one losing games here against teams we should comfortably beat from 5-0 to 5-4 probably after this week .... they have to match GWS this week like the Pies did cannot afford a blowout

Certainly frustrating but that's what happens with young players unfortunately.
We won't beat GWS but I can garuntee we play a lot better than the first 3 quarters against Freo. We seem to get up for certain games and I reckon this will be one. Just listening to Hardwicks presser and it sounds like changes are going to be made

Won't happen imo. We were desperate for a ruck which is why he got called up, he's not really a forward. I think we'll just persist with Elton until season's end, then delist him and acquire someone else via trade or FA. If we don't want the tall, we'll just drop him and go a bit smaller by bringing in someone like Lennon, Lloyd etc.

Chol is the guy that should be coming in ahead of Elton. Better ruck and kicking goals in the VFL every week.

Elton's a bigger and stronger body I think is the reason he's getting games, that and Chol had the concussion the week Elton got the nod initially iirc.

Griff's had a few concussions now, so I think they're being extra cautious with him given his history with them and injuries in general.

As I've said before, I think we'll almost certainly go hard at least or two tall-ish forwards over the offseason to increase our depth. Sam Reid and Josh Schache are two being mentioned at the moment.

Yep, a CHF that can pinch hit in the ruck has to be our absolute #1 priority this off season.
Reid is a good player but very injury prone as well. I've heard Mccartins name mentioned as well who I wouldn't mind us going after

Honestly, I don't see the point in going after McCartin. He's had a number of concussions himself and I'm not sure that's worth risking, especially if Griffiths is still an unknown. Reid's in his prime now and looks to be okay (touch wood) which is I think is really important. I think Schache has all the right attributes as well, but he's obviously a bit younger and still will take a year or two to really become good. Regardless, it should be interesting to see who the club decides to pursue and what decisions we make in regards to guys like Griffiths, Elton and Chol.

Just to summarise the last three weeks:
1. Give up a five goal lead, lose by under a goal and robbed a chance in the dying moments.
2. Claw back a five goal lead, hit the front, lose by under a goal in the dying moments.
3. Give up a five goal lead, get the game winning goal, have it overturned through review, lose by under a goal in the dying moments.

Richmond is legitimately bad for mental health.

One thing Dimma can take with him when his coaching time is up is the title of undisputed kings of the choke , being able to lose games that no other team could possibly match and it is good to see the experienced players are passing on the skills that are needed to the young guys so that this can continue into the future  :P

If the Tiges matched any offer, I believe the options are either:

- Dusty accepts the offer and stays
- The teams agree on a trade for Martin
- If a trade can't be made and Dusty still doesn't want to stay, he enters the pre-season draft

The Dusty saga rolls on he's off to NZ with manager to speak to dad if you can believe whats said in the media and the old man was not happy with the Tiges after the last contract even though it was Carr that flowered that up , the Roo's have lifted there offer to 1.5 mil for 7 years don't know if the Tiges can or will match that and I'm sure the old man will tell him take the cash.

Dusty will have no future in footy coaching or media when he retires going by his personality so not so sure he will be in yellow and black next year and I'm kind of thinking that I don't want the club to pay that much for him as we will probably lose good young players in the future because of salary cap issues so I hope the club is looking at players like Kelly or Rocky or Hopper or others think I would be happier to hear we signed Rocky up for 700 or 800K than keep waiting and get no one.

It's a pretty simple equation. If he's signing it will be be before the finals. If he doesn't then he's as good as gone.

I want him to stay obviously but if he leaves at least we will go to the draft with 3 first round draft picks plus around 1.2 million that we didn't spend on him. Not all doom and gloom if he goes. I expect him to stay though.

On his dad, he knows what Richmond have done for him and allowing him to go visit him throughout the year.
He is from the rebels MC who consider the most important things in life to be loyalty and brotherhood so if it's based on his opinion I would imagine he says to stay loyal.

Dusty might not have a media career on the cards but AFL players have many more ways than that to make money. Brandon Ellis owns a watch company that makes him more money than his AFL contract. Plenty of opportunities to buy into real estate, clothing lines, resteraunts and bars etc.

I'm still fairly confident Dusty will stay.

He'll probably go visit his old man during the week off which has been happening for a while.

North have got a slightly bigger offer on the table and I don't think the difference in the offers will be enough to make him jump ship.

Pretty sure he's very comfortable with us and all the club has done for him, I really don't see much of a reason for him to leave.

Dusty might not have a media career on the cards but AFL players have many more ways than that to make money. Brandon Ellis owns a watch company that makes him more money than his AFL contract. Plenty of opportunities to buy into real estate, clothing lines, resteraunts and bars etc.

Dusty's got his own clothing line, got some pretty cool tees!
Norf 1.5 Tiges 1.2 or so reported that's 2.1 million dollars over the contract .... slightly bigger offer wow you must be well off did not realize we had a tycoon on FF  :P

Who comes out of our side? Caddy has to come back in, but surely Townsend has to stay now. I'd rather Short in over Broad/Oleg too

Oleg, Graham, Castagna, Broad, Townsend the ones under pressure

Townsend can't possibly be omitted after 11 goals in 2 games, he's our best forward right now and it almost makes you wonder why/how he didn't play earlier. He takes pressure off Jack too which is good.

Graham's been fantastic, but Caddy does have the experience and can play through the middle (I think he's better as a mid anyway).

I agree re: Broad/Oleg and bringing Short back. Personally I thought Broad was the worse of the two.

Miles is still in ripper form but there's just no spot for him.

I really hope we don't rush or even bring Conca/Griffiths in tbh.

Team structure looks good right now, don't mess with it. Plus last time we did something like that, it didn't end so well.

Post by: Nige on August 28, 2017, 12:55:46 PM
A lot of people from the outside looking in seem to reckon we're a bit crazy going in with Nank as ruck and having nobody to pinch hit, but it's also part of the reason we're doing as well as we are. It's his value around the ground and the ability to play someone who'll have more impact than Soldo or Elton... or even Griffiths really.
Title: Re: Richmond 2017 H&A season
Post by: LaHug on August 28, 2017, 02:14:25 PM
I agree that Nank solo is the best call.

Out: Graham
In: Caddy

Not sure we need to make any other changes tbh... If we bring Short back, it might have to be for Markov because of size, but I'm not sure we need to make that change.

What a great season. So proud of the boys considering how dire things looked coming into this year.

The board should be applauded for sticking to the plan and putting their faith in Hardwick and getting better people around him to help out. Let's not forget that after last year that "focus on footy" group tried to take over the club and sack everyone. What a disaster that would have been.
Next challenge is to win a final! 2 cracks at it now. Tough ask considering we play Geelong who we haven't beaten since 2006 and then will likely play Sydney if we lose. A straight sets exit would be a disaster but I've underrated our boys all year and they have proved me wrong time and time again so who knows where this year can go.

Hopefully some good news from Dusty to kick things off then a big win against the cats infront of 95,000 at the G

As far as changes go, I think our entire list will be available which is a great position to be in. Some guys in great form in the VFL too and we will get another look at them in their first final this weekend.

Personally at this stage I think Caddy in for Graham who hasn't put a foot wrong but Caddy more experienced for finals.
Maybe short or Conca in for Markov who hasn't done much wrong either. I'd like miles in too

FB: Vlastuin, Astbury, Grimes
HB: Houli, Rance, B.Ellis
C: Grigg, Martin, Edwards
HF: Caddy, Riewoldt, Lambert
FF: Castagna, Townsend, Rioli
R: Nankervis, Cotchin, Prestia

Foll: Conca, Butler, Miles, Mcintosh

I'm MCC but wanted to get a reserved seat on the wing (no way I'd get there early enough to get one without reserving as I've gotta come from Hobart). Tickets were live at 12:00pm yesterday and they said there were none left in the section I wanted by 12:01pm. I had to keep refreshing and then, all of a sudden, got seats in Row B. So I'm right at the front on the wing. So pumped!

Who's going to the prelim this week? Sold out with only 1200 odd tickets sold to GWS supporters, the atmosphere will be amazing, can't wait!

Anyone think there will be changes? So many of the VFL boys in unbelievable form having got through to the grand final themselves but I don't think I would make any changes
Title: Re: Richmond 2017 H&A season

Yep got tickets easily this time, going through ticketek on your mobile is much quicker!

Don't think there will be any changes, the only guy in danger of being dropped is George he's been quite for a few weeks and bringing in Bolton for him wouldn't be the worst move. But I remember George had a really good game against GWS a few weeks ago so I'd go in unchanged
Title: Re: Richmond 2017 H&A season

Some will request a trade but I wouldn't be getting rid of any apart from Maybe Griff if we land Schache. Morris done also
Townsend was out the door a month ago and look at him now. The way our VFL is set up now where it is fully allinged with the club, its having a massive positive impact and helping players come seemlesly into the seniors when they are called upon.
Broad, Graham, Townsend etc look like they have always been there.

Nice one, quinny! I wanted Level 1 in MCC but I'm not a full member yet (and I guess rocking up at 3am probably sucks).

Bummer Nige. Good luck finding one somewhere else. I've heard looking around on BigFooty and the likes is a possibility. Also try to find Geelong and GWS fan pages for anyone that had a guaranteed ticket but now doesn't want to go because their team didn't make it.

Best weekend of my life

I second that! Still feels like a dream. The whole day was unbelievable. So proud of the boys and dimma.
Got home from the game at 10pm and watched the replay twice already. Will no doubt watch it another 10 times through the week!
GO YOU MIGHTY TIGERS!

Is there a minimum games requirement for the motorcade? That could be it. He only had 154 or something like that and it could be a 200 game minimum.

Absolutely phenomenal. I cried. I hugged strangers. I was shaking. My heart was going crazy. It was the greatest experience of my life.

I definitely didn't plan for it because I don't have enough money in my regular account to pay off my credit card until my pay check (fortunately, it should time ok). Impulse buy at its finest.
