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...
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...
RICHMOND’S $459,000 profit has been bankrolled by record sponsorship revenue, record membership and record crowds.
But the number is down on last year’s $1.3 million profit because of increased spending on football.
In the financial report emailed to members, Richmond president Peggy O’Neal said the club now spent $8 million more on football than it did in 2010.
More than 71,000 signed on as Tigers members in 2015 — with 1.05 million punters attending the club’s 22 home-and-away matches.
The accounts show the club generated almost $25 million in sponsorship and marketing revenue and $7 million in gaming money.
The Jack Dyer Foundation contributed more than $800,000 to the bottom line.
O’Neal said the year had been a “tale of two stories”.
“On-field, we again made progress, finishing fifth at the end of the home-and-away season, but we were ultimately frustrated by another elimination final loss,” she said.
“We all feel that disappointment, nobody more so than the...
Richmond is mourning the passing of long-time coterie group member Tony Mangan, who was killed in a light plane crash in Mildura last Friday.
Mangan, a highly-successful businessman from the Mildura area, was a passionate, valued supporter of the Tigers.
He had been a member of the Club’s Richmond Executive coterie for many years and was an extremely popular figure at Tigerland.
“The Club was deeply shocked and saddened to learn of Tony's passing last Friday night,” said Richmond’s CEO Brendon Gale.
“Tony was a wonderful supporter of the Club and always keen to help out his beloved Tigers wherever, and whenever, possible.
“He was a larger than life character, who had a great ability to bring people together. He will be sadly missed by many in and around our football club.”
“Our thoughts are with his wife Julie, his children Dylan and Ebony, grandchildren Zinea and Max, his extended family and many friends.”
This post is to introduce XenForo 1.5.0, the first supported version in the XenForo 1.5 series. This release builds on previous versions of XenForo to add new features and bug fixes.
The new features in XenForo 1.5 include:
It is unacceptable and an indictment on the Richmond playing group that captain Trent Cotchin was blanketed out of the game by a tagger, says Cameron Mooney.
He was held to just nine possessions, including just three kicks, against North Melbourne in the elimination final by Kangaroos midfielder Ben Jacobs.
“Yeah Cotchin had a poor game and he’ll have to live with that the whole summer,” said Mooney on SEN radio.
“But he’s their captain and arguably the best player so how could you allow him to be manhandled, pushed and shoved?
“There is no way in the world Geelong or Hawthorn, or if you go back to the days with Brisbane big Browny would have come through and knocked Jacobs on his backside.
“You can’t allow a person to dictate to your best player like they did on Saturday.”
Tigers coach Damien Hardwick has claimed through the season his group has significantly developed in terms of leadership on the field.
Mooney suggests that the inability for anyone to take the initiative...

Yellow and Black Fever
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...
