Real composure from our men today.

1.25 quarters of really exciting footy, the rest was barely watchable.

Damnit. That was one of the few games this year that we're going to have a realistic chance to win, and that lapse in the fourth that led to the goal flurry cost us.

Well, that and Daniher not taking his early chances. I also felt Stokes' miss when we had the opportunity to go in front early in the fourth hurt the momentum.

In better news with some brave tipping I've moved to equal third at work, two points behind. Tigs were the only team that cost me this weekend.

Um.

Tigers 'paying the price' for recruit strategy - AFL.com.au

Richardson said it had been "a terrific achievement" for Richmond to make the finals in Hardwick's four years at the helm, but acknowledged the Tigers' list management strategy had been a factor in the club's slow start to 2016.

Credit to Carlton for taking their chances. Three in a row. Trav reportedly elated.

Man, beating Collingwood is the best.

We don't do that often.

Free kick count 20-5 at 3QT. 20 to 5.

Joke.

Feels like we're constantly playing with a handicap in blockbuster games in Melbourne.

Turns out that one Troy Pannell gave out 17 free kicks to the Bulldogs himself, with only one to Adelaide. Also vision of him patting Stringer's arse after a mark in their forward 50, and rumours of him being a Dogs supporter. He's umpired Dogs games where there were fairly similar free kick discrepancies.

This should be investigated by the AFL if they want to assume some sort of credibility.

Some have been quite successful, Grigg, Miles and Houli.

I think the problem at Richmond lies with our game plan. We have a terrific spine of players there. Highly dependable role-players (Deledio, Edwards, Maric, Vlaustin) and some genuine superstars (Rance, Martin). But when we get the ball, we have no sense of purpose. It's a random cavalcade of trying to work the ball forward, but no one knows where they fit in to the game plan so it just gets eventually turned over somewhere between the 50-metre lines.

I personally think Hardwick's time is up. He's proven himself as a ground-up list builder, but not a match-day tactician or appears capable of instilling composure into the team when it counts.

Our list is pushing on, I'd be curious to see if Ross Lyon could work some magic into this side within a maximum three-year contract. We've finished 5th twice in the past few seasons and we've normally beaten the elite Hawthorn, Fremantle and Sydney sides of the past few years. I just want to see us make a grand final.

I think Ross might be in for the long haul this time, I'm not sure he'll try that stunt again.
