Riewoldt was one of our best! No question!
Only dangerous forward we had and have had for 4 weeks!
Only player who can take a contested mark!
Proud of the worst team in history to win a premiership.

i wanna see JR play along the HF line...with others tried out of the sq, astbury will get first dibs...JR has some great qualities but kicking for goal aint one of them...marks, and moves well, perhaps he needs to focus more on setting them up as he stuffs up the finishing

perhaps send him down back? He's actaully a smart footballer when he's got the pill, just for some reason is like Baker-Finche when kicking for goal.
“For My thoughts are not your thoughts,
Nor are your ways my ways,” says the Lord.
 
“For as the heavens are higher than the earth,
So are my ways higher than your ways,
And my thoughts than your thoughts."

Jack,

Riewoldt may have walked back to his spot in the zone. I'm sure it will be picked up on during the week and be nutted out. If we can leave the expectations that he should play and act like Jonathan Brown and not make 1 single mistake all day I'm sure we'd be able to see the big picture that he's 21, averaging 6 marks a game and 2 goals in the worst side in the AFL as a forward.

If we pick out every mistake a Richmond player does each week I'll spend every second of my work day reading it. Our problems are far greater than Jacks goal kicking and walking back to his Zone Spot.

Sure there are holes to fill but Riewoldts lost spot will be a bigger hole to fill if traded, and why on earth would you gamble that on a draft pick? So many star juniors fail to come on in Senior football. Why does everything and rely on them to do so? Why? Why gamble on trading Riewoldt to secure a Sam Day who if we are lucky will be marginally better than Jack? It's a risk for a 10% gain that could be a 50% loss. its farcical. You trade a KP forward for more KP forwards. Its just stupid. Trade a Thursfield and Tambling for pick 10 and than Trade that with pick 4 for pick 2 and pick 20. Then we start making some sort of sense to add to our side.

Unless we seriously win out of the deal which wouldn't be evident for some time to come - This Riewoldt trade is laughable discussions.

Robbing Peter to pay Paul.

A Dee day out - and the fans love it
JAKE NIALL
April 19, 2010


MELBOURNE was expected to win yesterday. This hadn't happened for at least three years, and it was this feeling that their club's history was on the turn that prompted so many of the surprising 42,594 attendance to turn up fashionably late to this unfashionable match.

Yesterday held a strong sense of occasion for those whose hearts beat true red and blue. They'd shown up in larger-than-usual numbers to see the rebirth of the game's oldest club, to see precocious talents Tom Scully and Jack Trengove, the reformed scallywag Colin Sylvia and the suddenly mature Jack Grimes.

They'd hoped that Colin Garland, recovering from a serious injury, would confirm that he was a real key defender - as James Frawley had already demonstrated. They wanted to watch Aaron Davey slicing through the middle of the MCG, to see Brad Green and James McDonald enjoying Indian summers of long and distinguished careers.

And they came to commune with Jimmy Stynes. It's the image of Stynes greeting the cheer squad and players at the Ponsford Stand end that will surely endure from this game.

Trengove called Stynes: ''The most inspirational bloke you'll ever meet.

''Everything he says you try and listen to and really take it into your own life.''

The presidency of Stynes has been about transforming a club, not just a team. Yesterday, though, was one of those games in which an emerging team pulls out the tape and measures its growth. ''Everybody's young, up and coming and learning every week and we seem to be getting better every week,'' said Trengove.

What the Melbourne faithful have recognised since the Dees were so unjustly deprived of victory against Collingwood is that the nuclear winter that began in 2007, in the last days of Neale Daniher, has ended. It's now safe to leave those bomb shelters and return to the footy, in the knowledge that Melbourne is a competent football team again.

This was not entirely evident in the first half yesterday, when Richmond, by dint of its youthful energy and willingness to contest everything, stuck with the Demons and remained within a kick.

To this point, the match had been quite entertaining, played with an abundance of space compared to the many defensive scrambles seen in these zone days. Damien Hardwick had chosen to place Richmond's main playmakers, Brett Deledio and Trent Cotchin, in defence - a move that ensured improved ball usage when the Tigers rebounded; the problem was that the delivery to forwards wasn't quite so flash.

The Tigers had perhaps gained some spirit, a galvanising effect, from their decision to dump four players, including two relatively good ones - Ben Cousins and Luke McGuane - for the late-night antics at a Sydney hotel.

They'd promoted three first gamers: David Astbury, Matt Dea and Troy Taylor. Most eyes were on Taylor, a springy indigenous forward whom the club had drafted, despite his well-known penchant for finding off-field trouble, in the hope that it now had an environment in which the kid's better angels would emerge. And Taylor duly provided one celestial moment, grabbing a second-quarter speccie. But of the debutants, Astbury was the most effective, booting three goals, two in the first quarter.

But, just as everyone suspected, the kids - and the Tigers were also without their skipper, Chris Newman - ran out of gas in the second half. The Demons seized control of the ball and the game. Scully played like a No. 1 draft pick, Moloney played like a bulldozer, Sylvia and Green feasted on rapid and clean delivery.

One of the principal reasons for Melbourne's abrupt discovery of competence is that, with Scully, Trengove and Grimes in tow, it now has a critical mass of players who can kick. It is no longer a team that has its hard work constantly foiled by sloppy ball use. That's Richmond's lot. Richmond now is Melbourne of two years ago. The Tigers face a tougher task, due to the new teams, but that should still be a consoling comparison.

MAIN MEN

MELBOURNE
James McDonald:
At 33, the skipper is arguably close to his career peak. He was the catalyst for Melbourne's eight-goal first quarter and gained a remarkable nine contested possessions in the first half. Although his influence waned in the second half, he was still among the most significant performers overall.

RICHMOND
Kelvin Moore:
The tall defender had one of his better games for the Tigers, judging the ball brilliantly in flight and timing his spoils expertly. At one stage he marked running with the flight moments after he was cleaned up. Moore also helped launch quite a number of counter-attacks.

WHERE THE GAME WAS WON
After a close and entertaining opening half, the more seasoned Demons booted seven goals to nil in the third quarter. Their stronger bodies, better decision-making and kicking skills were the difference.

BEST
Melbourne: Moloney, Scully, McDonald, Green, Sylvia, Jones.
Richmond: Moore, Riewoldt, Deledio, Cotchin, Tuck, Martin.

Quarter by quarter: Demons v Tigers
Michael Gleeson
April 19, 2010

 
First quarter:
Richmond got the jump kicking two goals to none to reveal a spirit determined to express itself after a torrid week. Jack Riewoldt was dangerous and created the first goals but James McDonald was prolific through the middle for Melbourne in what was a surprisingly entertaining contest of open play and man-on-man football. More important given other recent games was accuracy at goal — eight goals were kicked (four each) before a blemish. Ricky Petterd's ingenuity to desperately lunge and slap the ball back from the point post for Matthew Bate to soccer an easy goal stretched the Demons to a 17-point lead at the first break that was perhaps not reflective of Richmond's first-quarter endeavours.

Second quarter:
Melbourne wasted opportunities to press its advantage but Richmond refused to let up on the pressure. Kel Moore was outstanding in the first half spoiling one mark and going to ground to injure his hand only to be up and across running with the flight to mark a ball soon after. Jayden Post, fullback in the first quarter, was full forward in the second. Mitch Morton began on a wing but went forward to kick the first goal of the second quarter. Richmond was denied an obvious free kick on the wing late in the quarter when Cameron Bruce was tackled while bouncing the ball but play on was called.

Third quarter:
Territory not traversed by Melbourne for some time kicking seven goals to nil for the term, stretching out to 50-point lead and a win became a certainty. All Melbourne players got in on the joke, Brad Green kicking a couple, Brent Moloney was outstanding in the third term in particular for Melbourne and Tom Scully played his best game yet for the Demons. Joel Macdonald and Aaron Davey created well off half-back for Melbourne. The Tigers' only clear winner remained Moore, though some of their younger players looked encouraging even in a tired sort of way. Melbourne had double the contested possessions for the quarter indicating a greater preparedness to work.

Fourth quarter:
With the match result already clear, Richmond still battled it out for the term kicking three goals — lively light-bodied forward Troy Taylor snapped one goal and fellow first-gamer David Astbury threaded a nice set shot from the boundary for his third goal in an impressive debut even if he tired badly in the second half. Colin Sylvia in his first game of the year after a broken jaw pre-season booted three goals in the last to finish with five for the day. Riewoldt continued to present and mark well but his conversion was again depressingly poor missing several routine shots.
