It came out afterwards that Richmond told Ellis to find a new contract. Both parties played a good game that year to keep it quiet and I am happy with the compensation for a player they didn’t want.

True, but Harley stated Essendon said they wouldn’t even take 5 and 9 if offered.
9 and a early second round sounds better than 7 to me and if Essendon performed a bit better this year it wouldn’t have been 7 either.

But they weren’t interested in picks 5 and 9 a year earlier.

I have read all the comments and no one mentioned Geelong’s home ground or region. No need to form a queue.

Thomas, I don’t understand your point about the Brandon Ellis move and when the Suns lodged the paperwork. Surely the lowball compo was because of the formula or the AFL’s manipulation of it. Richmond were never going to match the offer, regardless of compo.

In what world is Jack Higgins going to turn into a million dollar player with one more season?

Unfair treatment of Adam Treloar will cripple Collingwood

I hope so. We heard that Bennell was the best midfielder in the competition for 4 years, trouble was he couldn’t get on the park.

Initial reports were that Hoggins initiated the discussion, not Richmond. Whether that is true or not I don’t know, but the fact is he has only 1 year left on his contract and the way things are going he may have been traded or delisted in a year. It is better for all concerned that he gets the opportunity to secure his future now, much like Ellis and Butler.
The Treloar situation is quite different. They just extended his contract by 5 years on massive money, aware of any issues he has, have changed their mind and by all reports are treating him appallingly.

Unfair treatment of Adam Treloar will cripple Collingwood

True but he is out of contract. I would delist him and keep Treloar for not much more money (from what I can tell) if it came to it.

Collingwood and Treloar - sorry for the three flags you missed Ads but we seem to have overspent

It’s shocking Peter. How could they mess things up so badly?
Collingwood look like they can only head south next season now and Buckley looks finished as a result. It would be remarkable if Collingwood improve in 2021 and he survives (which he would deserve to).
Even I can’t enjoy this.
P.S. ditch De Goey and keep Treloar.

I think Richmond would have smashed Brisbane. Their performance against Geelong, much like Collingwood’s showed they only had one finals win in them.

Missing from the Richmond dynasty? A legitimate rival

I think we were originally playing twice this year from memory, so hopefully next year.

Missing from the Richmond dynasty? A legitimate rival

I think what it comes down to is people can’t accept that the Richmond style of play is winning Premierships, so they try to de-legitimise it. They want a kick and high-flying mark team to be the best because they like that style of play. Not saying they are stuck in the past, but the fact is footy is always evolving and the Richmond method will be countered at some time.
I believe the big forward is back and Richmond recognised their one big forward that worked in 2017 was not going to keep working and hence targetted Tom Lynch. I don’t think he is a Jack R replacement, he is there to complement him and Richmond will need to find a replacement for Jack over the next 2 years.

Missing from the Richmond dynasty? A legitimate rival

I haven’t missed the point, I just don’t agree with it. Where is the evidence? It seems to be gut feel only.
Hawthorn at their peak were able to attract top end talent but Richmond couldn’t. So what’s the difference with free agency today? Seems the same to me, just swap around club names.

Missing from the Richmond dynasty? A legitimate rival

When Richmond won in 2017 we heard from Grant Thomas we were the worst Premiers ever, in 2019 it was a weak opposition and even after a come from behind win with a player short most of the match in 2020 and after beating the top placed team away in a Prelim, we still only win due to the competition being weak in 2020.
Honestly, if people can’t accept Richmond are a legitimate force after this year’s effort then they will never be satisfied.

Missing from the Richmond dynasty? A legitimate rival

Agree WC should be the rival and I have said before that we wouldn’t have beaten them in 2018, though I am waivering on that.
Geelong are a legitimate rival still. We have met 3 times in a Prelim or GF in 4 years and in 2019 they were the second best team, it just happened that the meeting was in a Prelim. It doesn’t have to be a close finish to mean they weren’t a threat.
When you are at the top for 4 years there will probably be different challengers over that period.

Sven, Dimma said as much in his Monday night interview on On the Couch.

Brisbane, Geelong, Hawthorn or Richmond: Which dynasty has been the best?

You said yourself in this article that travel is the biggest factor on home ground advantage. It is an hour drive.
For that reason I can’t accept your table of home ground games. Brisbane had to have it tougher than any of the others in that respect, yet it looks totally skewed against Geelong.

Brisbane, Geelong, Hawthorn or Richmond: Which dynasty has been the best?

Well, for what it’s worth I’d say Brisbane, but also you shouldn’t really compare teams 20 years apart.

Brisbane, Geelong, Hawthorn or Richmond: Which dynasty has been the best?

That is essentially what he said in the first sentence, the rest was irrelevant nonsense. Also look at his comment history. Nothing much on footy.
