When I was a kid, Chris Naish was my favourite player. Actually, he became my favourite player when Trent "Tassie" Nicholls left Richmond (I cried the day I read that in The Advocate).
I had a footy card of Naish, with a white border, and he was at the end of his beautiful kicking motion. The specifics have faded with time but I like to remember it with Naish wearing the magnificent yellow and black jumper, flapping about ever so loosely as was the style in the 90's. He sported some grass clippings and mud on the knees, not necessarily indicative of his style of play to my memory, but it may well have been given the TV coverage was not like the saturation we get in 2016.
The I loved most about that card though, was that I was exactly the same height as Naish, 173cm. I wanted to be 173cm forever, although now, I'm comfortable that I'm not and I grew thirteen more centimetres.
Naish kicked goals during a period when Richmond didn't kick too many. Then, when the other cubs began...
Anthony Miles isn’t the type of character to take anything for granted.
So, although the tenacious ‘ball-magnet’ midfielder has had a significant impact throughout his first couple of seasons at Richmond, after being delisted by Greater Western Sydney, finishing fourth in last year’s Jack Dyer Medal, he doesn’t yet regard himself as a permanent member of the Tigers’ senior line-up.
DESPITE playing every game in 2015, Richmond midfielder Anthony Miles doesn't feel as though he has cemented a spot in the Tigers' line-up.
For external observers that might seem strange.
He finished fourth in the best and fairest and was one of the few Tigers who maintained his reputation with a solid performance in the team's elimination final loss.
But that's what happens when you arrive at your second club via the rookie list, having been delisted after just 10 games in two years at Greater Western Sydney.
"I've spoken to people about it and particularly Mark Williams (Richmond assistant coach) and he says it's not necessarily a bad thing to play on the edge," Miles told AFL.com.au.
"For me I have probably played my whole career like that given where I have come from."
The 23-year-old might have adopted a 'playing on the edge' mindset but his style of play is to be in the heart of the action.
He hunts the football hard at stoppages, winning possession for his...
A few of you may remember this post from a few years ago. I originally wrote it for when we surpassed 50K members which at the time was an awesome achievement.
It’s not a new illness by any stretch of the imagination. It has been in existence of over 100 years. It has affected over 70 000 Australians in 2015 and all signs point to a continued rise in this contagion. The biggest problem associated with this condition, is once it is in your bloodstream, there is no cure.
There is also some evidence that once a person is in its grip, the DNA can be altered and future generations may also be impacted. Sure it can be immunized against, but the vaccination process is much worse than the disease. The disease...
