TELL US: Are Richmond the real deal, and what the hell happened to the Swans?

This 2017 hasn’t started the way many of us thought it would.

The Sydney Swans and Hawthorn Hawks, whose positions at the top of the ladder have been all but foregone conclusions the past five years, suddenly find themselves wallowing at the bottom of the table.

And Richmond, the perennial punchline of the competition, have raced out to a 5-0 start to perch themselves just behind the Adelaide Crows in second place.

Are these reversal of fortunes indicative of the season to come, or merely a mirage?

This is the question we’ll be tackling on Roar LIVE tonight with resident Roar Expert and shameless Tigers fanatic, Cameron Rose.

So we want you to tell us:

Are Richmond the real deal?

And is there any way back for Sydney and Hawthorn, or are there seasons shot before they even started?

Let us know your thoughts in the comments, and we’ll try and get to as many comments as we can in the show.


Roar Live will be streamed this afternoon at around 5:45pm on The Roar’s Facebook page. It will also be available as a podcast on Soundcloud and iTunes.
