No. To. A. Night. GF.

I don't care what the AFL and the broadcasters think. It sucks.

Hi Windy

Fair comment.

However, what do you call a club’s failure over say 18 years?
An Essendon

Merrett stays next year. No commitment for anything beyond.
Well unless he is treated better by the club and his teammates - I'd leave too.

GWS were offering 4 years. They must rate him.

So what is it going to take for GWS to let him go? Are we going to pay overs to wreck the career of yet another promising player again?

Re: Finals footy ‘20 is bloody hard to watch

I couldn’t bare Richmond winning. They don’t deserve to be mentioned in the same breath as the other three great dynasty teams of the 21st century. Won their two (thus far) against rubbish opposition. It makes me furious that our side circa 1999-2001 could only manage the one flag yet this Richmond...

Houli is definitely good for one mote year...at Richmond
Houli won't leave Richmond.

Rich has put too much time and money into the Bachar Houli academy and his foundation. That counts a hell of a lot for him and his extended family.

We could never match that.

Re: Leadership Going forward

Ridley should be in the future mix. Not yet though. Seems calm, self assured, introspective...another 2-3 years of solid footy and some support with a view to managing young blokes minds. Get Jobe Watson to talk to him. I think Jobe would be an excellent person to have around the club / group. He w...

Yes - lets add him to our list of "plays one great game every 4th or 5th game played, otherwise is crap" players

Oh, and the last player I heard was managed by their dad was Jelina Dokic.

Re: Essendon Rumour Mill

So Smith, Walla and Stringer are supposed to be 'unhappy' at the mo. Well geez, who can really blame them. Our club at the mo is what-ever the opposite of a destination club is. https://www.foxsports.com.au/afl/afl-trade-whispers-2020-player-movement-rumours-news-out-of-contract-players-free-agents...

Re: Joey goes to Brisbane

Daniher and Fantasia haven't been on the track and both have shown nuthin' for two seasons. We'll lose potential only as their injuries might be a huge impediment for their improved performance. Goddard's report from last year (I think) that Daniher's rehab behaviour was less than professional illu...
