Yep.
To quote the Age today this "looks overly opportunistic" when Richmond has won it's first premiership in 37 years.
Suppose it's a regular part of the entire political scene nowadays, worldwide.

Was thinking last night that after following Richmond for over fifty years I had the glorious bliss of enjoying winning the big prize, sitting back basking in the afterglow, and then Broad and the Board just pee all over it.

Jerks.

Charlie Constable's AFL website profile and draft preview:

Draft range: Looks likely to be taken later in the first round or in the early stages of the second round.

Westmeath star and former Aussie Rules (Richmond) rookie John Heslin insists he’s not upset about his International Rules snub.

Looks like the bombers are doing a better job in regards to revenue raising.

I’d personally rather premierships though.

There is a $4million injection into the club from something similar to our TFF. Don't know the full details but expect this is for their proposed expansion of facilities
*smirk ... $4mil injection ... *nudge nudge ... say no more Squire!   
Yet Garry and Watson on SEN just went on the raw 'profit' number this morning and were going on and on about Essendon being the biggest club in the country  ::)  :chuck

I don't know if I would say "it was heavily defeated".
We were only told by Malcolm Speed, as the acting chair, that Resolution 1 failed.
Do you have other info WP?


No other info I thought they read out the numbers???

Though my recollection of the night was there weren't many hands in the air when they said "all those in favour"

But it doesn't really matter; I still think it is poor of them to raise it again 12 months after it got defeated. No need for it

Well before everyone on here turned on him he was seen as the messiah and most wanted him to replace Dimma.

Hey Chucky where did you get the source that 'Most wanted him to replace Dimma"?

However, last year the debate was heated (Redan Tiger can vouch for it), a vote was taken and as I said it was heavily defeated

Re the life membership one. My understanding it says VFL/AFL because our previous GF wins were in the VFL era and to capture the likes of say Freame, Mount it needs to read VFL as well

I don't know if I would say "it was heavily defeated".

I understand the VFL/AFL in that context but it does seem all premiership players will be Life Members.
http://www.richmondfc.com.au/news/2017-08-24/life-honour-for-wa-tigers
If we are granting Life Memberships to former VFL premiership players then why have it in the constitution?
Simply cover off the old VFL players as they're doing and write only AFL going forward.
The way this is worded IMO means VFL AND AFL players will get them for premierships going forwards.

The insult (IMO) to Rioli, Free, Richardson, Knights, Deledio etc  still holds true with the deletion of the 100 games clause.
IMO this is another example (multiple proxy forms, By-Laws etc) of the sloppiness displayed by senior administration in performing their most important role.

That's correct
