3 VERY important questions:
When does the winners DVD box set come out?
When does the Richmond Draught Premiers 2019 slabs come out?
When does Peter Dickson’s wonderful GF mini-docu come out?
I believe that Richmond draught will be available later this week.

Not sure about the other two

Love to hear what you all think was THE critical moment of the finals series for us.
Maureen Hafey and Kevin Sheedy presenting the cup before the GF. Richmond had both hands on the cup before the ball was even bounced.

Another crucial moment....PF, late in the second quarter, down by 20 points and Ablett squares a high ball to Radegalea who is on his own. Broady leaves his man, body lines the man with eyes fixed on the ball and kills it. That was amazing defending!!! No ostrich on that one!!!!

Is Radegalea one of our NGA player's or was ,,he's from our Academy zone and fits the criteria required ,,,Hmm maybe they didn't want him .

My thoughts about the Grand final,l went expecting to wiin by 4-5 goals ,it certainly exceeded my expectations ,and the relentless pressure by our player's was brilliant to watch .
Pickett was a great debut but seriously getting votes in the norm smith surprised me ,l thought in was in our better player's but not top three.
They said Grimes was underrated ,well Astbury must be the most underrated Tiger this century ,he rarely gets beaten and lm struggling to think when the last time was ,he doesnt 'get the possessions but does the job.
My favorite bagging mate George :) he was very good ,had he slotted 2-3 of those points he would of been Norm Smith medalist imo.

All in all,it was just a ripper match by us ,honestly l don't think there was a bad player,they all just worked so hard,and didn't stop right till the end.
Now bring on 2020 it's ours :)

So have you found your players for mass premierships yet? You'd think this bunch have at least two more flags left in them.

There's always been one important thing missing from my AFL's 'best list' , but I can now finally add the missing link to complete my list.

It's not difficult to see why Those Mighty Tigers are the biggest sporting organization in Australia.

It's coz we have...

THE BEST COLORS
THE BEST JUMPER
THE BEST HOME GROUND
THE BEST HOME BASE LOCATION
THE BEST CLUB SONG
THE BEST CLUB EMBLEM
THE BEST SUPPORTERS
THE BEST MEMBERSHIP


And now the missing piece can officially be added.

Without a single doubt we now have...

THE BEST TEAM

Winners DVD box set comes out November 6th according to assistant I trust at JB.

Also if you want some fabulous original T-shirts, etc google Redbubble then use search for Richmond t-shirts. You can also get bumper stickers etc.

Can't remember if correct but my recollection on Radegalea as a NGA is that we missed out by 1 year on him qualifying

I re watched the Grand Final on the weekend. First viewing without emotion.

We played some fantastic passages football. Definitely clicked for us that day.

We also left some score. Castagna missing 5 by not much and a couple of the other shots didn't miss by much. Luckily it didn't matter.

In the finals, it was interesting that we took advantage of the opposition missing critical shots. The Lions, nearly every time they went forward in QF although, McDonald, McLuggage, McCarthy, Cameron and Raynor all missed easy shots. Blicavs in the PF missed a sitter, and Himmelberg's miss early in the second quarter was the point where we never looked back.

I always think back to Tom Lynch (Adelaide) and his miss in the second quarter of the 2017 GF, then Rance's phenomenal spoil on Walker that set up Jack's goal.

Turning points...

I just wanted to say a big thank you to the 2015 Rookie Draft for providing 4 premiership players for us. 2 in 2017 in Castagna and Lambo, and Soldo and Shorty obviously got their medal this year...wow!

Any word on whether Dickson Films has done another GF film this year?
My merch from the superstore arrives this week, including Marshall's new book. Can't wait.

Watched the Grand Final 4 times now (as well as the Pre Lim v Geelong 4 times)

The more I watch the more I pick up. There were some really strong pieces of play from most of the guys. They connected so well. Yes I know we won well but still we got there as we were red hot that day.

The run and the trust in one another is awesome. Must be fantastic to play with that connection.

Only four times each @Gracie !! :D

I think I'm on about 20 times each ... seriously. I put on a finals game from 2017 or 2019 any time I'm not sure what to do for a couple of hours. I put them on to fall asleep to. I put them on for my morning coffee. Every so often I put them on at work!

I'll never be bored again.
