    What comes through in that story is the amount of contact Mark williams has with the (presumably younger) players and the appreciation /respect tigger has for him. Also liked Arnotts reaction to being replaced. really feel he wants to play firsts

    Good point about Choco.

    I liked the part where it was thought Tigger looked a bit tired and all the first year recruits were sent home to spend a day on the couch.

    And there was a stage where it looked as though he had had enough and comments were made on Y&B to that effect. Interesting to hear Tigger's account of games through the year.

    Love the section about the Vlastuin vs Morris one on one battle in pre-season. That would have been great to watch.

    Heard about that at the time. Reports of a bit of biffo between Vlas and Morro. Hardwick would have loved it.

    Good advice from Morro too.

    VLASTUIN AN INSTANT HIT

    In terms of raw numbers, Nick Vlastuin’s debut season of AFL football at Richmond was pretty impressive – 18 games, including the elimination final against Carlton, an average of 16.3 disposals and 4.8 marks per match, and a sixth-placed finish in the competition’s prestigious Rising Star award.

    Not bad for a kid that some claimed didn't have a tank and with only limited skills.

    Actually, (perhaps appropriately) I think somebody's gaming it. Over 1500 votes in a couple of minutes? I think not...

    VOTE 1 VLASTUIN!

    Suss!

    Gees MsTy, he's got 550 votes , including mine, and still only has 2% of the total :(

    I watched a replay of the 2015 Sydney v Tigers R13 game a couple of nights ago .... Vlastuin was excellent .... hopefully he will get back to and go beyond that form this coming season...

    Good question .... he is in good company, except for Silly James from Hawthorn.... the age group seems to be the common factor...

    The whole thing has a distinct air of dartboard about it.

    Bulldags people definitely robo-voting, too.

    Thanks to today's flurry of appreciation for young Nick I discovered that I was "watching" this thread.

    Don't remember ticking that box!
