Noble and his team are in place to develop, mentor and teach. The media pile-on has seen them abandon that brief and now they are protecting their own careers by blaming the kids they are supposed to develop. They are angry, aggressive and cynical in who they discipline. They have absolutely lost Tarryn Thomas and, if things don’t change quickly, JH-F’s stay will be very short.

They need to look at how Touk Miller, Lachie Weller, Jarrod Witts and David Swallow have led the GC kids to galvanize and sign on for the long haul. Freo have done the same.

The leadership they shed is the leadership they need.

It does not. Soldo had a big influence in quieting Stanley. Prestia is not that good.

Such a silly narrative. Those of you running with this argument seem to think Prestia reduced Richmond to 21 players.

But they didn’t win. Do you know they replaced Prestia? The big boy was more influential than Prestia.

Melbourne last year. Bullies a few years ago.
Finals experience has only ever been a footy media thing. Footballers see it as the next game. Media calls that a cliche. I choose to believe footballers.

Against no one.

They really lost against Carlton. Arc adjustment for the yellow and black.

Both Carlton and Geelong were…and are…the better sides.

Now argue why they rank so far ahead of Collingwood and Port.

You might feel my disagreement but you’ll never be able to show examples of abuse. It’s what I challenge.
Your abuse the other day was a classic example. If you look at who ‘liked’ your comment, you’ll see 2 of the usual Richmond 6 who need all the support they can get.
It’s your choice to chose to be that person…strange choice but…there you go

There was a worse one earlier in the game when Aliir charged front on into Rankine in a marking contest 20 metres out. Had to be a free. GC lost Rankine for the next 15 minutes

Tiges played 2 quarters. Cats weren’t startling.

Sounds very Richmond to me. No problems with the glowing praise they are getting?

With each week, returning Eagles are not only strengthening the side but their synergy is developing exponentially.

If we tip Eagles games, thinking this is the same mob that have been playing before the bye, we’ll make a few miscalculations. This will certainly be no percentage booster (for Richmond). Eagles are a good chance to win.

The Dogs have let me down many times this year. I usually tip them.

Even Coach’s Votes.

Can/will you get there?

You don’t have a valid argument so you just go the abuse route?

I’m not arguing that Freo should be higher. Richmond lost…that’s not the form that has them ranked above Carlton.

In fact, Richmond’s form is so bad, they are not in the 8. Do you just find a block of games where they won and lop off the last one so that they can finish high on a list somewhere.

How is their form better than Collingwood’s? Or Gold Coast’s? Why are they not 3rd? Richmond?

You blind Vics!

AFL power rankings: The empire strikes back

Can’t do that until the finals come. Freo have won stacks of finals in the past.

AFL power rankings: The empire strikes back

Who have they beaten? Only Carlton and that was a monstrous blooper by the arc.

They cannot beat good sides. Vics and the Richmond media! Go figure!

AFL power rankings: The empire strikes back

That’s exactly what I am alluding to. They are the only side in the comp to have beaten each of the other sides in the top 5.
You say you can’t see them winning.
I say you won’t allow yourself to see them winning…or you haven’t really looked.

You’re not looking West? Brodie and Clark over there. Brodie will outpoll all of them in the Brownlow.

Richmond 3rd? Why?

AFL power rankings: The empire strikes back

Freo was a scalp. I can’t believe the Victorian attitude towards Freo.

AFL power rankings: The empire strikes back

Richmond?

They lost. Have you seen their ladder position? The only team in the 8 they have beaten, they needed an error from the arc to do it.

They sit 12th for me. They are way out of their depth.

Richmond? C’mon Yatz!

AFL power rankings: The empire strikes back

You were.

I didn’t.
