    I know you are a great advocate and leading proponent of left field thinking, but this is too far, even for you!

    I would also add it is preferable we should not say we "must win" by 10 goals.
    You set yourself up for a hiding to nothing if you do not accomplish the feat.
    It is probably best to say overall we have expectations to make finals.
    The Bulldogs had an expectation to make finals, but no-one estimated they would proceed through the finals series.
    They kept a low profile and were completely underrated.

    Low profile is best.
    All the media hype in the world is worth less than a hill of beans.
    Walk the walk.

    I'd be shocked if Castagna wasn't promoted and played Thursday, he done a lot more than Butler in the preseason games so deserves his chance and that's not saying Butler doesn't deserve a game it's saying Castagna did more.
    I'd like those 2 and Rioli down forward with us playing quick attacking footy with those 3 pressuring and piling on goals once it hits the ground.

    Plus add Edwards, McIntosh, Markov and Menadue and the side is getting some real speed.

    However fully expecting Hardwick to pick the same old same old.

    Butler and Castagna are impressive.
    Lloyd (27 y-o) and Edwards (28) need to have good seasons this year.

    I don't expect him to pick the same old I think he has been overruled and made to work with Caracella, Leppa and co more but controlling him in the box is a different story

    I reckon it would be a gutsy move playing Rioli, Butler, Castagna and Lloyd in the same side.

    In one respect I wouldn't mind seeing it because it would mean Hardwick was prepared to take a risk and be a bit innovative.

    If he does play, it seems to indicate a definite commitment to a game plan built on pace and pressure coupled with an interesting blend of control and chaos. I think we now have several players with the quick hands and decisive reactions to be able to cause chaos when the opposition has the ball or the ball is in dispute, but, just as importantly, those same players can convert the chaos back into controlled movement when we have the ball.

    What's of critical importance, as the season takes its toll with injuries, etc, is that we have solid back-up players in the small to medium size midfielder-forward group, which should mean the plan can stay the same even if the personnel have to change. If our game plan depended on, say, a dominant Griffiths/Nankervis presence at CHF, and one went down, we'd struggle to fill the void and therefore have to modify the game plan. Look at the Bullies last year – consistent plan, team riddled with injuries, but they always had enough spare jigsaw pieces to complete the puzzle. They played to their strengths, and it looks like that's our intention as well.

    And if we lose to Carlton, I'll be completely gutted more quickly than an under-size snapper at the Altona boat ramp.

    Richmond coach Damien Hardwick says the club's fans will see a new-look team against Carlton on Thursday night but warns that it's going to take some time for the new game style to reap rewards.

    Hardwick said the recruitment of new midfielders would enable to Tigers to be more dangerous up forward.

    "They'll certainly look different obviously with the addition of (Toby) Nankervis, (Josh) Caddy and (Dion) Prestia," he said. "Three players straight away. (Dan) Butler will play. (Josh) Castagna is a very good chance to play in that as well, so there are players that we haven't sort of seen a lot of before who will come in and play roles.

    "So we're really excited about that. We are looking forward to putting on something different that we haven't seen as of last year and those players will certainly help that."

    Castagna, who played five games with the Tigers last year, has been upgraded from the rookie list.

    The coach said he expected more goals with Dustin Martin and Trent Cotchin free to play bigger forward roles.

    "Martin and Cotchin will play forward. You know Josh is a bit of a weapon up there as well, together with Nick Vlaustin, we haven't had that for a number of years, ever since the retirements of (Shane) Tuck and (Daniel) Jackson ... So to bring those two players in has really complemented our midfield and allows us to put another weapon up forward at various stages, which we are really excited about.

    "Leppa (assistant coach Justin Leppitsch) has done an amount of work with those guys to get an understanding to how it is going to work and how it is going to look ... so that is something that we haven't had last year that we are looking forward to this year. "

    Hardwick was effusive in his praise of Carlton, saying the Blues had a dynamic young team that was raw, but developing all the time.

    "You look at their side, they are a well-drilled side and while the scoreboard will say otherwise ... there are some things in their game that is really solid. Defensively they are very good behind the ball. They set up very well from a structure point of view. Offensively they will get better as the game goes on. We are very wary of the Blues, when they play their best footy they can beat anyone in the competition, make no doubt about that.

    "We are under no illusions that it is going to be tough. Round one, any game is up in the air."

    Hardwick says new Tigers style will take some adjustment
