  Tigers lock in three
Posted by: Ned - 21-12-2018, 10:06 - Forum: Richmond Ramblings - Replies (4)

[Image: IMG_4088A.jpg]
Richmond has re-signed premiership utility, Kane Lambert and two young key position players, Ryan Garthwaite and Callum Coleman-Jones.

Lambert, 27, was runner-up in Richmond’s 2018 Best & Fairest and will remain at Tigerland until 2022.

Exciting key defender, Ryan Garthwaite has committed to the Tigers until 2020, while developing ruck/key forward, Callum Coleman-Jones is locked in until 2021.

Lambert, a skilful, quick, and hard-edged half-forward/midfielder began his journey with Richmond as a 23-year-old, recruited to the Tigers in the 2015 Rookie Draft.

The 2017 premiership player has gone on to play 74 games and kick 43 goals so far in the yellow and black.

Lambert averaged 22.5 disposals in season 2018, and was no. 2 at the Club for total disposals. Last season he booted 15 goals, his best haul across his four seasons of league football.

Blair Hartley, Head of Player Personnel and List Management said Lambert is an asset to both the team and the Club.

This summer will be my fourth reading of the book I thought was all about my time here on this forum. Alas, it mainly gave amazing insights into all the key movers and shakers at the club, both on and off field, during the Premiership run of 2017. 

I feel Marshall missed a real opportunity to explore Vines the man, the myth, the legend, and instead went for the money grabbing theme of an historic premiership year, cashing in on all the success starved Tigers fans desperate to read, watch and/or listen to anything remotely to do with the flag. 

The book concept of Vines is still there, waiting for the right author to take on what many believe to be the ultimate prize in literature.

  From Tigerland to Los Angeles
Posted by: Ned - 24-11-2018, 14:26 - Forum: Richmond Ramblings - No Replies

Ben Griffiths Contributor 

I’ve had a couple of visits to Los Angeles now and I’m starting to get my head around the areas where the AFL and US college football are similar – and where they’re worlds apart.
Take the band, for example. I used to wonder whether all that music and excitement and choreography was just made up for the movies. No way. It’s very real. The hype around every home game over there feels like a grand final back here.
I don’t officially arrive at the University of Southern California until next month – and I’m not scheduled to play until next year – but I have had a few trips over to scope everything out. On my last visit, I found myself at a rally the night before a game against Colorado standing next to my special teams coordinator, John Baxter, and dead in between the USC cheerleaders and The Spirit of Troy, the Trojans’ marching band.
Then the players arrived. The place went crazy! The band started playing, the cheerleaders were jumping around and the fans were delirious. Everyone is so passionate about their school and patriotic about their country. I was a bit rattled, to be honest, especially with the coach dragging me into the middle of it all. There’s not much in footy back home you can compare it to. I’m just glad I’ve experienced it now so it won’t shock me when I’m actually over there playing.
Preparation, on the other hand, isn’t all that different to what we’d go through at Richmond. For home games, everyone checks into a local hotel. Warm-ups and recovery are pretty similar. Team meetings are structured much the same way the Tigers’ are, although there’s probably a little more video work done with the USC boys given how structured each play is in American football.
As for Aussies in college football, we’re still pretty unique – and a bit of a mystery to the locals. The coach introduced me to the team as a ‘professional rugby player’ and added a year to my age. I hadn’t started yet so I wasn’t too keen to correct him in front of everyone! The boys asked plenty of questions about footy, but I’m not sure I advanced the cause too much. Everyone seemed convinced I’d been playing a cross between rugby and soccer. Lost in translation …
All in all, though, I can’t wait to get this new chapter of my life started. I’m grateful to the Tigers for everything they’ve done for me and I will carry so many of those experiences with me when I hit LA the week before Christmas.
And then it’s down to work.

Richmond’s Tiger Army have underpinned another strong profit result.

The Tigers became the first Club in AFL / VFL history to break the 100,000-member barrier - finishing the year with 101,562 members - and it was the cornerstone of a $4.21 million net profit.
Richmond president, Peggy O’Neal once again praised the loyalty of the Tiger faithful for their unwavering support of the football club.

“Richmond members and supporters are now without question the most loyal, passionate fans in the AFL, and we thank you for the strength you give us both on and off the field,” O’Neal said.
The Club generated total revenue of $79.8 million, an increase of $14.6 million year-on-year, with record membership, crowds and sponsorship key contributors to the financial result.

In 2018, Richmond’s 100,000 membership milestone marked eight years of consecutive membership growth for the Club.

The Club also finished AFL number one for total home-and-away crowds (1.19 million), and AFL number one for average home crowds (61,175) in season 2018.
Further growth in the Club’s health and recreation business, Aligned Leisure, also added to the Club’s operating result.

In 2018, Aligned Leisure successfully tendered for management rights to facilities in Albury/Wodonga, and more recently in Mildura, with the Mildura contract commencing in the first week of November, 2018.

The Richmond Institute of Sports Leadership (RISL) – delivered in partnership with Swinburne University - also continues to grow.

Student enrolments have increased and RISL will now further expand its reach to deliver a course in Albury/Wodonga from 2019. The course also now includes international learning experiences making it a truly unique educational experience.

“Both Aligned Leisure and the Richmond Institute of Sports Leadership were key undertakings of the Board to ensure we diversified the Club’s revenue streams, so as to reduce our reliance on football-generated revenues. It is pleasing to see both operations performing so strongly,” O’Neal said.

Additional highlights of 2018 include the Richmond’s inaugural VFLW team, who won four games in their first season, and created a strong foundation to develop the program in 2019 and prepare for the Club’s first AFLW season in 2020.

The Club also continues to invest significantly in its community programming and partnerships.

Richmond’s partnership with the Alannah and Madeline Foundation continues to strengthen after six years of partnership, supporting the Foundation’s important work to protect children from violence and bullying.

The Korin Gamadji Institute (KGI) also continues to work relentlessly with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander youth. It is important work and central to the Club’s Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP).
Richmond remains the only sporting club in Australia to have its RAP recognised as being in Elevate status for its demonstrated leadership.

Richmond’s commitment to diversity and inclusion saw the Club enter a team in the inaugural Victorian Wheelchair Football League and renew its sponsorship of the Midsumma Festival.

The Club also continued to deliver the Bachar Houli Academy in partnership with the AFL and, for the first time, the Academy included female participants.

  2018 draft thread
Posted by: Barrel - 20-11-2018, 10:15 - Forum: Richmond Ramblings - Replies (25)

Only a couple days away now. I have a feeling we'll trade up on the night using a future pick or two.

On another note I see we are likely to sign Mav Weller directly to the rookie list by using a new rule that prevents going through the draft process. Now its hardly inspiring signing delisted saints but I've always thought he was a decent player. At the very least he provides cover for some of the depth we lost and for only a rookie contract. Im okay with it.
