Tony Scibeci and one of the late night announcers from SEN are Tiger supporters.

Dare I say Herald-Sun columnist Andrew Bolt is one too.

Hahahaha I was in the medallion club that day against the Dogs and he bummed a light of me that day when I was out on the verandah out the back in the Medallion Club at half time. Must have been after he bummed the smoke of you CUB.
Ran into him also on the way to the car going down the stairs. Was trying to crack a few gags but I was devastated on only drawing the game and was in no mood to respond or laugh. Still his leather jacket was almost 2 sizes too big for him. :lol :rollin :lol

from the Age
Geoff McClure
June 23, 2008


WAYNE Harmes is hardly your regular former league star given he now admits during his 169-game Carlton career he remained a Richmond supporter, that despite winning three premierships with the Blues "I was an employee of the Carlton Football Club and that's all".

Well, Harmes, has dropped another bombshell, revealing this time that because of the way the game is played these days "no contests meaning very little excitement" he hardly goes to AFL matches ...

Despite Harmes' dislike of what is happening to footy at the elite level he will keep a watchful eye on the MCG next Saturday when Carlton takes on Richmond.

Will he be barracking for the Tigers? "Of course," said Harmes. "Richmond is my team. In fact as a kid I despised the Blues. Funny how things turned out isn't it."

4. Like a Tiger - Robbie Williams

AND speaking of wildlife. Richmond fans may be thrilled to know that English boy-band-singer-made-good Robbie Williams appears such a fan of the Tigers he keeps one down his pants just in case he's required to strip. Collingwood fans may be less enamoured to know that the reverse of Robbie's jocks were rumoured to feature a Magpie. Actually, the soccer-loving Williams sold his favourite underpants at a Charity Relief auction in 2001 and he's since shown a propensity to put his smalls on the line in all manner of sporting fields.

Say what you like about Robbie's singing, he is prepared to mix his interest in sport with good deeds in charity. Last September he organised SoccerAid at Wembley Stadium, attracting 45,000 to watch celebs in an England versus the Rest of the World battle. The locals won 4-3 with the proceeds going to the United Nations children's charity Unicef.

Williams also stumped up in 2006 to buy a majority stake in his League Two home soccer club Port Vale in Burslem, Stoke on Trent. And to bring that little touch of England to his new home in the US, Williams also established the Los Angeles "Vale" football club, a Super Metro League team in California. Perhaps, the AFL should be thinking smarter and getting Robbie involved in Western Sydney or "boganville" as the out-in-the-cold Tasmanians have grumbled. Could we soon be seeing a pair of moccasins on Robbie's black underpants?

Mick Molloy a real Tiger for Richmond punishment (Herald-Sun)

Mick Molloy a real Tiger for Richmond punishment
Colin Vickery | June 02, 2009

FORGET waterboarding and sleep deprivation. Comedian Mick Molloy reckons the ultimate torture is barracking for Richmond. Molloy is one of Richmond's highest-profile supporters.

He has followed the Tigers for 27 of his 42 years and says it has been a non-stop rollercoaster.

So far this year, the Tigers have endured the Ben Cousins saga, injury to spearhead Matthew Richardson and the on-again/off-again Terry Wallace soap opera, which has just ended with him stepping down.

The Tigers scored a much-needed win at the weekend but they're second bottom on the ladder with no chance of making the finals. Another season is down the drain.

"I was watching this documentary on Abu Ghraib the other day and they were trying to work out what constitutes torture and what is cruel and unusual punishment," Molloy says. "I was sitting there with my hand up going: 'I can tell you - it's supporting the Richmond Football Club'.

"I love them to death and I'll never stop supporting them, but they just find new ways to get to you. Once again our season is over."

Molloy, a panellist on Channel 10's football program Before the Game, says 2009 has been especially disappointing for Tigers fans because there were such high expectations this year.

"Some 90,000 people turned out for the Round 1 match against Carlton - a new dawn at Richmond, this is it - and four weeks later, I'm at Richmond v Melbourne and there's about 12,000 people there," he says.

The club's best finish under Wallace was ninth in 2006 and 2008. "We've got a mortgage on ninth," Molloy says.

"God love Richo (Matthew Richardson). If he hadn't been there for the last 12 or 13 years, it would have been very tough going to the footy as a Richmond fan."

Richmond's last premiership was in 1980. Does Molloy think he will see the Tigers win one any time soon?

"I'm a 42-year-old man and there's nothing much coming down the pipe. I don't know what to do about them."
