Ok, turns out there's more to it than people bitching: http://www.news.com.au/sport/afl/fr...4df28b40063960c

Ah, something similar happened here - was originally the West End Showdown medal, and CUB kicked up a stink with the AFL and forced the medal presentation to stop being televised and recognised by the AFL. That only changed when the West End sponsorship deal ended, and it's gone sponsor free ever since.

CUB were always super annoyed that Football Park didn't sell their product, only selling Lion Nathan beers, not to mention all the ground signage that got on the telecasts, and they were rebuffed by the SANFL at every step.

The umpires argument is that it came off the side of his boot, so it wasn't deliberate.

However if the ball travelled in the direction he actually tried to kick it, it almost certainly would have gone out deliberate.

Great pass from Petracca. Hopefully Richmond pick up an injury so Kent going down for the Dees evens things out

As an unbiased observer, this umpiring has been pretty biased and I actually feel sorry for the Demons for the first time in my life

I reckon that chosing to kick off the ground, regardless of whether it's a good kick or not, when there's nothing but space between you and the boundary isn't a genuine attempt to keep it in.

Apparently the first time the Tigers have finished top of the ladder after a round since '95. Before this round, that was a feat the Brisbane Bears had done more recently than the Tigers.

Goodwin is a poor coach, and trading 2 picks away for Lever is going to cost us


Also, Richmond fans are loving horrendous to sit near at the football. I thought I'd seen it all but good lord there were some morons in the AFL members tonight who had no idea about footy. Wish I was in the MCC, happy to take the stereotype.

The melbourne supporters in the comments calling that the "best tackle ever" is a testament to the softness of the club as a whole.

Actually it was an oddly comforting staple of the Richmond mythos, inspiring disappointment and hope in equal measure, keeping TRUE fans from the brink of despair. Not that there weren't defeatist ship jumpers who are now scurrying back into the fold, but REAL Tiger fans absorbed no lessons, embraced blind optimism, and those who aren't dead have been blessed with the fruit of random success.
