Richmond’s Win 2017 Premiership

Sunday, October 1st, 2017

AFL Football team Richmond Tigers are jubilant after winning the 2017 Premiership. Capping off a massive week of achievements the Tigers won the 2017 Premiership flag. Tigers player Dustin Martin, won the Norm Smith medal for best on ground. Taking the winners dais after the AFL Grand Final, Tigers Coach Damien Hardwick was gracious in victory congratulating their  defeated Adelaide Crows opponents. Many had expected a Crows victory but the Tigers, possibly buoyed by Martin's Brownlow win had risen to the challenge and pulled of a miraculous victory for its loyal fans. Young  Aus Kick footballers,wearing their Tigers football jumpers, jerseys, guernseys, handed the victors their premiership medals with endearing comments to their heroes such as "great game" and "your'e the best" .



Partying and celebrations continued all night and into the small hours of the morning around the MCG, next door at the Richmond Oval and across the surrounding suburb of Richmond and neighbouring Cremorne.

It is a much feted victory, a long time in the making, as its been thirty seven years since the Tigers last Premiership. A fairytale win, akin to the Western Bulldogs 2016 great victory over the marauding Sydney Swans. A repeating tale of underdog Victorian team wins against much favoured Interstate rival.

The crows gallant in defeat will return to  Adelaide minus the holy grail, the 2017 Premiership Cup, as this year it remains firmly entrenched in the local Victorian hands.

Some fans will put away the much loved football jumper, jersey, guernsey. Others will continue to wear theirs proudly for the weeks and days to come. The MCG was packed to capacity, emotions ran high, and the roar of thrilled spectators went out amidst a vista of yellow and black, or red yellow and blue football jumpers, jerseys, guernseys.

The Riewoldt playing phenomenom , has hit the Richmond Football Club.

Play Football

Thursday, April 15th, 2010

Another scandal has erupted around Brendan Fevola . Media and TV reports have revealed he has admitted to having a gambling habit causing great financial loss.

This comes a few days after the Richmond Football Club were involved in a drunken fracas in Sydney . Several Richmond football players , including Ben Cousins ,have been suspended by their club for varying lengths of time.All were fined .

Whilst these exploits make good tabloid headlines are they detracting from the reputation of the game and its enjoyment by fans ?

Players wear their jumper, jersey , guernsey with pride . They play football for an AFL team and are paid well for their effort . Elite athletes who set an example for young people and encourage all to enjoy a healthy lifestyle, participate in a team sport and get regular exercise .

Does anybody really care how much wealth is squandered in gambling venues by AFL players .

How many stories can we entertain about mid season drinking binges?

Players wear their jumper , jersey , guernsey and play to the best of their ability .

All the other hype surrounding players behaviour can stay behind the scenes.

Let the viewing public enjoy the spectacle of the game .
