I messaged a couple of people here some days ago about the engraving on the cup and in particular the engraving of 'Richmond'

I was really concerned about the quality of the engraving because I felt it was really poorly done. I let it go because I thought that
maybe I had it wrong and my eyes were deceiving me but I have noticed on another forum the engraving as come up in a post and
that particular post has received a lot of thumbs up.

It seems to me, that it was a rushed job probably done on the cheap. Its a shame. First premiership cup in 37 years and they did
that to it. You'd think after waiting 37 years they'd take the cup to Hardy Bros and get it engraved there. What are other peoples thoughts.

Agree Ramps, it looks like it was hammered in by a Year 8 metalwork student. The text is off centre which I'm not pleased with, and Virgin should get their belt buckle off the cup, it will get scratched.

Gee the engraving is even worse than I thought in that shot. Its not properly centred, the font used isn't right, the "C" has been butchered and the "D" seems smaller than the rest, none of the engraving is crisp either. They've completely stuffed it up. What a shame. RFCO if he or she still comes in here should answer what happened with the engraving.

It’s a photo of a curved reflective surface.

You just have to add an exclamation mark after RICHMOND and it would be perfectly centred. :snidegrin
OER. Calling it as it is since 2004.

The Cup is in Shepparton today.

-----------------------------------------------

Die-hard Richmond fans will be able to get up close and personal with this year’s AFL premiership cup in Shepparton today.

The Tigers are midway through a tour across regional Australia, and the cup will be in Maude St Mall from 11am to 2pm, giving the Tiger Army faithful a rare chance to have a photo with the prized silverware.

After today’s visit to Shepparton, the cup will go into hiding for seven days, before reappearing on the Gold Coast on November 11.

Tigers’ trophy in town

by Hayden Thomson
Shepparton News
November 04, 2017


Richmond Football Club’s ‘Tiger Army’ was out in force yesterday with the premiership cup on show in Shepparton’s Maude St Mall.

‘‘The club is pleased and proud that we can bring a slice of the premiership here,’’ club spokeswoman Georgina Cahill said.

‘‘To thank our members in Shepparton and the Goulburn Valley.’’

Fans had the chance to have a photo with the one-of-a-kind piece of silverware, with a ‘‘steady flow’’ lining up during the three-hour showing.

‘‘Not too many dressed up in outrageous outfits but we had a few wild characters,’’ Ms Cahill said.

Shepparton resident Corey Foster was in the mall to grab a coffee when he saw the line-up and the shiny cup.

‘‘I’ve supported them since I was four ... I love Dusty but the list goes on and on,’’ he said.

‘‘I had faith ahead of the grand final and I hadn’t cried like I did for a long time after the boys won it ... what’s not to love about them.’’
