Did he have a pretty significant role in keeping our jets on the lest staying for unders (bar Dusty's last big contract). If so, contributed massively to a flag.

Typical Essendon, trying to buy their way to a flag.

Was surprised to see he was at the club for 5 years.

Interesting that Carlton and now Essendon potentially poaching individuals with intimate knowledge of how our football club is run internally, not sure Dan is over the line but good luck to him if he goes.

Seems like at least some of our rivals see us as a successful club these days.

I would say more than a few do, its not in any way, shape or form surprising, what was achieved in 2017 from where we were, was monumental, from the board to the boot strapper.
Disinformation is 70% letting stupid journalists make the wrong assumptions, repeatedly.

Was probably told to look for work elsewhere but if he can't then he's always welcome here ::)

From Prez Peggy O'Neal on the RFC website:

What will the departure of Dan Richardson mean for the football department? He did a good job with contracts.

Firstly, I would like to thank Dan for his service. The Richardson name is synonymous with this Club and I’m sure Dan found the decision to move an extremely difficult one to make. We wish him well in his new role at Essendon.

The football department structure, roles and responsibilities is something that Neil Balme will look at along with Brendon Gale. We have a number of highly-experienced administrators and we are well placed to ensure the pre-season proceeds without a hitch. Neil and Brendon will make any changes they deem necessary and we will share that with members and supporters in due course.

We won't have to worry about Essendon this year. They don't want to copy us ;D.

NEW footy boss Dan Richardson says Essendon will forge its own playing style this year rather than replicate Richmond’s successful premiership template.

http://www.heraldsun.com.au/sport/afl/teams/essendon/bombers-on-track-for-strong-preseason-despite-injury-issues-for-francis-and-travis-colyer/news-story/80aec24734ce74c4b163e2f086a7f6f2


He also spoke about us:

Richardson says one of the key lessons from Richmond’s premiership success was to play a game plan that utilises the players’ strengths, rather than minimises their deficiencies.

All clubs will attempt to bring more forward pressure this year to win forward-half turnovers but it doesn’t mean they have to slavishly replicate the Tigers.

“You take some learnings from wherever you go and I have learnt a lot from Richmond and the people there,” Richardson told the Herald Sun.

“But that said I don’t believe you can just try to copy what someone else has done. You have to forge your own path.

“One of the things Richmond learnt was that you allow a team and the players in that team to play to their strengths, whatever they may be.

“We particularly learnt that in the past 12 months.”

Is Richardson giving Hardwick a backhander with that statement regarding a game plan that plays to the players strengths not minimise their weaknesses.

I don't think so, he is really only saying what our own coaches and the club have been saying.
