    Finally acknowledgement that premierships are the aim.

    How about Bill James 1 game for Richmond premiership player.

    I continue to really dislike the concept of life membership for players at clubs.

    Apparently forking out your hard earned cash for 30 or 40 years isn't as worthy as being paid hundreds of thousands of dollars to do your job and play footy 100 times.

    Life? Man, that's a harsh sentence for bringing joy to many a Tiger fan. o_O

    Must have been Wobblywood, Carlscum, N0rt and Geebung judges at the bench...

    Gavel!

    Far fewer fewer Richmond premiership players than there are long standing paying members TBR - so an economically sound decision by the club.

    In any case - premierships are what we long suffering members are forking over our cash for - any Richmond player who plays in a premiership for Richmond going forward are more than welcome to the keys to the building in my view.

    I'm not on board with this one.

    Life membership should be about making significant long term contributions to a club.

    In this case, blokes like Darryl Freame, David Thorpe, Stephen Rae will all be elevated to a status that they would not otherwise be deserving. They have a Premiership Medal, which is an exclusive club anyway.

    I also think that Life Membership is something that should be voted on, not just awarded for achieving something, albeit the ultimate goal.

    I don't expect everyone will agree, just my 2 bob's worth.
