Bowden -talented but soft & unaccountable. Wasted career.

Grigg =/= JON

Edwards < Tambling

Hampsud < Graham

Thomas =/= Farmer


The crime of the current duds that exceeds those of duds past is that they're dragging down & killing the careers of arguably the three most talented players we've had at the club since the early 80's in Deledio, Martin & Cotchin and we'll probably lose at least the latter two eventually because of it.

Knights, Richardson, Campbell  were every bit as talented as the current lot
It's that simple Spud

If you disagree with a fanatic, they will automatically assume you are a competing flavor of fanatic.

Joel Bowden deserves better than that from the Richmond supporters

Agree he does, he along with a few other Richmond champions could have been so much more if they were at another club.

Nah - I could never hack Joel Bowden. I always felt he would have been happy if his brother Patrick had stayed at the club, and the pair of them could pass it endlessly from one half back flank to the other, going absolutely nowhere. Then they could counter their critics by pointing at their stats and saying "I had 30 touches".

Agree. I would substitute Paul Broderick for Campbell.

Loved Brodders, good call.

Vickery has had a shocker. Should be traded at seasons end.

you dont think it has anything to do with the coach? I mean who is the forward coach and what have they done down there.

Il tell you what SFA. Its up to the coach to not accept medicority and Hardwick seems to reward it.

Why does Vickery care? He gets dropped to the reserves plays a good game there, and his in the side again for 2 months.

There is no incentive to play well and that goes with Titch Tambling and the other spuds who occupy many spots on our list.

Vickery is no more a dud than Graham and Tambling dont be fooled.

I think the concentration of whipping boys at one time has increased in this year with our recycling

Good call. It really has reached a pinnacle this year.

Us supporters deserve better

This is just my 2 cents worth,but I think at least some part of our woeful performance can be attributed to a lack of fitness.We appear so slow.But maybe that's because of our poor attitude
