Time for change . Co captains really encapsulates the end of the Dimma era . Highly undisciplined.

New Richmond . New Coach .its time for a change of leadership.

If Richmond were to consider a change in leadership for 2024, would Tim Taranto be frontrunner?

I thought it was a good idea to spread the load across 2 players after Cotchin - particularly with Cotchin being there as a player.
Hindsight being hindsight, its been a disaster with Nank being injured or undisciplined as an on field leader and Grimes not playing well enough to warrant a spot on the team.
We would have been better off keeping Cotchin as captain - now we have 2 captains that cant really be relied upon in that role and no back up from Cotchin or Jack.

We now have the same leadership void that we had Cotchin fill 10 years ago when he came into the role which is a pickle.

The leadership that we do have in place from that era is off field so this becomes a crucial decision for Benny, Balmey and Tim Livingstone to make - with Yze.
It, in my view, is as big a decision as the one to replace the coach as it will set up our next 5 years.

For this reason, it really has to be Taranto with some experience in the support leadership roles which is where Id get a Broad and a Lynch to support
I find it nearly impossible to make those judgments, but he is certainly up there with the really important ones, he is certainly up there with the Francis Bourkes and the Royce Harts and the Kevin Bartlett and the Kevin Sheedys, there is no doubt about that, Balme said.

The feeling amongst the playing group is that Nankervis will be the sole captain heading into 2024.

Richmond will start its leadership process this week and continue it when the Tigers head to Inverloch next week for a pre-season camp.

The Tigers appointed Dylan Grimes and Toby Nankervis as the club's first ever co-captains at the start of 2022, replacing three-time premiership skipper Trent Cotchin.

Yze said any captaincy decision won't be his alone, it will involve the current leaders and the wider football club.

"It won't just be my decision; it will be a footy club decision. There will be a process around selecting the leadership group, then we will work out from there," he said.

"That process will start this week. We go on a camp next week which will be important. It will be a club decision and realistically the guys that are in our leadership group are going to have a fair say in that decision as well. That information will come out in the next few weeks."

As long as we have the guts to still  drop him if plays like shyte or gives away a bunch of stupid frees & 50's every other game....which on the last two year's form is a fair chance... :shh
