We need to support it.

Congratulations Vino. Gotta give credit where credit is due.
I have openly stated on this forum that I despise the Richmond football club more than anything but that has more to do with the chip on my shoulder than their players or supporters.

It has been an incredible few years for that club and I can only sit back and applaud.
-First female President in the AFL. American born lawyer with A grade credentials and impeccable work ethic.
-First Muslim premiership player Bachar Houli. Only one of a handful of guys that competes during Ramadan and routinely runs 16km on an empty stomach, and, a terrific bloke. Don’t forget he was widely mocked because his first club was “The Bombers”.
-Dustin Martin is the #1 player in the competition and his father was deported and isn’t allowed in the country to watch his son play.
-The only Jehova in the comp missed out but Alex Rance is by far the best full back in the league.
-Marlion Fucking Pickett :happy I could write a novel about this guy I’ve watched a lot of him live over the past couple of seasons for South Freo, singlehandedly beat West Perth last year in the qualifying final. Made his debut for the Tigers in the GF - we will never see that again.

From the coach to the bootstudder they have been the best and most exciting for 3 years now with an aggressive high scoring style. Smashed my Brissie Lions comfortably in the semis and they can pack a stadium like no other, 100,014 fans there on Saturday.
Well done.

Nice one Nige.

I've gotta tell you the last few decades had been tough being a Tigers supporter. I was at the 2016 Grand Final and cheered the Doggies on knowing how great their supporters would be feeling after such a drought. Then the next year out of nowhere we went all the way. I didn't think anything could top it but this year after the start we had and with the injuries we had, it was a testament to the players that they could put themselves in the running for a flag. This year was the first time I took my daughters to the grand final and they loved it, especially given the result.

Yeah there's a few good stories. I think Pickett's is one that won't be repeated. Unbelievable. The crowd was at feverpitch when he took that mark and then goaled. It really was spinetingling stuff.
