The Qualifying Final (despite the obvious choice) as I realised then that we had a style of play that would that could win us a flag. Before then I was just hopeful but enjoying the ride.
Proud of the worst team in history to win a premiership.

For me that Prestia goal in GF that started in the backline us winning the ball and Jack giving it to Lambert and I think Rioli was involved to and Lambert put the after burners on and set it up for Prestia. Crows were just passengers watching us.Great team play and spirit.

Dustys performance v Carlton rd 1 was mindblowingly good. Could have kicked 8 that night from the midfield. I knew we were going to be competitive this year off the back of that game.

Onfield

Was on holiday in Europe with the family, and logged in to the AFL website to get a score on the game vs Port Adelaide. We were about 3 goals behind in the 3rd qtr, and it wasn't looking good. Figured we had lost, so I put the phone away and went on with the holiday. When I logged in later and saw we had come from no where to win that game, I felt for the first time a feeling of genuine belief that we could really do something this year. And despite the hiccup against the Saints he following week after, that feeling never really left me.

Final siren at the prelim was pretty special too. Felt so damn proud of the team to have made the Grandfinal. Seeing what it meant to the players tugged hard at the heart strings.

Offield

Watching Benny Gale cry in the grandstand near the end of the grandfinal. People talk about this being a flag for the  fans, for the players, for the ex-players, the influence of Balme and Caracella etc. etc. But gee, Benny deserved this. He has done so much work for our club, and to see his raw emotion when we won a flag when no one gave us a hope at the start of the season, that was special. I always liked his bold 3-0-75 plan, and while we didn't make it to that lofty aim, I'll take what we have achieved. Well done Benny

Personal

I don't want this to sound like a gloat, because I know so many deserving members and fans missed out, but the feeling I got when I saw that my credit card had been debited by Ticketek the Sunday after Prelim was like nothing I had ever felt before. I was literally numb with the realisation that I would be going (with my 14 year old son) to the grandfinal.

The implementation of Balme and then Caracella, leading us to a result dimmer wouldn't have achieved this far into his tenure.
“I can’t believe it, 1.20 to go, you’re three points up and there is nobody at the back end of the square for a quick kick in for the opposition.

“I just can’t believe my eyes.

“It’s poor leadership and it’s poor coaching from the Richmond Football Club.”

After the first 6 games I think we had 5 wins. I knew we could make finals given we didn't slow start again and I thought top 4 was a possibility.

You really mean the combination of:

Dimma's man management.
Balme's professionalism and calming effect
Caracella's footy smarts and tactics
Leppitch's great forward line plan
Rutten's excellent backline coaching......


Led us to the ultimate success.



It's never one man that causes either success or failure in a team, it's the sum of the parts! We just found the right combo at the right time.

My favorite moment was our last quarter against Melbourne.  That is when I started to believe.
2nd favorite was when we ran out vs Geelong in the final.  Will never forget that noise.

So many great moments! Dustin Martin was a highlight reel all season. Him rag dolling Hamish Hartlett was great viewing. I also loved that torpedo Vs Carlton that put Caddy in a position to goal.

Running Geelong off their feet in the QF was extremely satisfying also.
