Big week for Rioli, got through the first run, this one he will have more minutes and give it more of a test. Says he wants to play in dreamtime but surely nowhere near it yet

Dreamtime will come too soon for him I rekn. Iíd give him another few games in the vfl at least which would put him back in our last game before the bye. You could prolong his return after the bye or use the bye week to give his body good recovery time after his first game back in the seniors.
stuff people have been hard on this kid for a 2nd year player..

All the talent is there. I don't want to be seeing Butler go possessionless for quarters on end or see Castagna display some of the worst skills and decision making possible. Give Bolton more opportunity, get Rioli fit and watch Stengle develop some more. I reckon these 3 are the future. Not that Butler and Castagna aren't decent players - they are and they helped us win a premiership. But if we get these kids up to speed then they'll have it all over those 2.

Don't think his talent is the issue.

I reckon has plenty of talent, unfortunately so far in his handful of games it is his defensive efforts (or in his case lack there of) that are the issue

But the bigger issue for mine is a 2nd year player, who has played limited games due the deficiencies in his game and his manager putting off contract talks. At this point in his career he shouldn't be demanding big $$$, again unfortunately his manager plays the game that way.


If he wants to go, let him go

How do you know itís a money thing. Could just be looking for more regular football or to just go back to his home state.
Can add as a positive as well despite playing below par we were not thrashed and if we had been more accurate in the second quarter could have gone into the half time break ahead.
True but we did get comprehensively smashed in the guts and across HF after half-time. Coughing up 13 goals in a half to only our 6 is a beating  :P.

47 points is a bit of a thrashing in most books

Are we paying Lids contract this season to ?.
georgies, we did reportedly agree to "pay a substantial portion" of Lids' GWS contract.

RICHMOND will pay a portion of Brett Deledioís new contract at Greater Western Sydney, in what was a key element that secured the deal between the clubs.

Deledio has agreed to a new contract with GWS, in which he will be paid about $1.5 million over three seasons.

But the Tigers, who were due to pay Deledio more than $700,000 in 2017, will pay a substantial portion of the starís new contract, which makes him a relatively cheap purchase for the Giants, purely in dollar terms.

Edit: Cheers YaBB  :cheers.
Can anyone in the know clarify?

Are we paying Lids anything post 2017!!!???

Reckon Butler survived because Castagna is injured

Got to be the only reason

Yes but it's hardly a "succession plan" as the "journalist" is speculating..... also not sure he offers that much up forward....

The journalist is thinking back to the sort of succession planning we did in the late 80's and early 90's.
