VFL 2014: Round 20 Richmond v Footscray
#31
Too true, too true [MENTION=5108]black[/MENTION].

As a matter of fact I had intended mentioning Sicily as a player to watch our for. Could be a "Roughead in waiting". Great pickup in my opinion.

So Goodes walked away with the "Gossy"? Thought Liam Jones, a Hobart boy, might have gone close with his 5 goals.

What I meant in my previous post was comparing Richmond VFL with Footscray VFL. How many AFL rated players did we have playing each week? We have a financially viable club v. a "handout" club. From the little I saw of our team on tv this season they wouldn't have been able to cope with the Scrays on today's form. I would say that WBD would be more confident elevating some of their VFL team to senior level than we would with our VFL team.

Box Hill was unlucky in that their interchange bench was virtually nil. I could see the format for the Hawks' game plan in Box Hill's play, just didn't think the cattle were up to it - certainly not in passing as most of their last quarter efforts seem to be simply bomb it forward to a pack.

From the glimpses of Rioli's face throughout that last quarter, I reckon he wanted to be out there. And from the look on Marco Bello's face as he marched out after the game, I think he also wished he could have been able to call on Rioli.

Don't know what your view is on the Rioli decision for him to sit out the last quarter but if he wasn't up to playing more game time in the VFL, then is he up for inclusion in the grand final in 6 day's time?

Given their limited rotations, it probably cost Box Hill the game.

But those sports scientist types are fairly precise these days, so Rioli would have been given strictly no more than xx minutes, or xx distance on the GPS meter.

Is Hawthorn/Box Hill a Richmond/Coburg deal or is it just a Hawthorn set-up using the old name?
If you're committed enough, you can make any story work.

I once told a woman I was Kevin Costner, and it worked because I believed it.

I was under the impression it was a Richmond/coburg setup. Could be wrong though.

If that's the case Box Hill would be bleeding.

Close game in last quarter, no fit players left on bench except Cyril who sits and watches to prepare for next week.
