Maybe you are just another pansy softcock Richmond employee that can't harden up because he's too busy looking at the big screen.

Wake up!

That name calling is a bit harsh

How many players post 27 would get a contract at any other club? Not many. So why are they on our list?

- C.Newman 31/32 = No
- C.Knights 27/28 = No
- M.Thomas 27/28 = No
- T.Chaplin - 27/28 = Maybe
- A.Edwards 29/30 = No
- J.King 28/29 = No
- O.Stephen 31/32 = No
- N.Foley 29/30 = No

Add R.Petterd who is 26.

That is a lot of old dead weight that no other club would want on their list. That is really alarming. 9 spots on the list we could have 9 rookies and even if 1 or 2 of them work out then its a win. None of those guys should be in our best 22, Troy Chaplin maybe scraps in, but an in form Grimes and a fit Rance with Astbury should edge Chaplin out in my opinion. I'd just play Grimes. Would free up 400k a year too.

What sort of list management policy is this? Charity F.C?

hmm
id agree the quality of a lot of the players aged 24 25 plus leaves a lot to be desired not just 27 plus.
there is a need for some of those older experienced players in the short term. none of us want to be uncompetetive and staret copping 100 point thrashings.
the only players who have really been regualrs  for a substantial amount oif time  are newman and chaplin. we can do something about newman but imo we are stuck with chaplin even if want to drop him.

it worries me that people think kids kids and more kids is the only way to go. its not its a balance we must find. if every single one of those 9 you mention were of a decent quality the kids would have to wait and earn their spots and no one would bat an eyelid.

we must find the right balance and we must have the quality to compliment the balance. me im happy for us to continue to value add if you like on players we have with late nd and rookie picks but ffs we need to target quality if possible in the erly to mid rounds of the nd and with f/a.

averages??
seriously?
in this case are meaningless.

what are the mode ages?

stats don't lie, but people use them incorrectly to to back up their lies.
average age of a football team is one of the most meaningless stats you can get because of the small sample base
“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."

Yahweh? or the great Clawski?

So that explains the 5.7 Geelong to 0.1 Richmond 20 minutes into the second quarter?

and explains Shaun Grigg, Steve Morris's mistakes that led to Geelong goals?

and explains our lack of run and space in our forward line?

The age argument is all about which players will be apart of your success tilt. None of those players are going to be part of it, why have them around, so we can lose by 30 points in fear of losing by 100? Not a great mentality and not how you build a successful list.

Play the kids goes for any untried player, players like Astbury who with some experience has really started to develop. No point playing someone like Petterd etc.

Don't mind a bunch of old guys as our fringe players. Our core list still looks young and good.
It can all change pretty quickly if we land one or two elite young players...
