Thread: Ted Richards

    Always sad to see one of your favourites go. Had a bad run with luck this year, but also looked great. His MOTM performance against West Coast was huge.

    When they sit back and chat about the great final season marks at the Defenders Club, I wonder if Teddy or Schaubs will win the argument.
    I knew him as a gentle young man, I cannot say for sure the reasons for his decline
    We watched him fade before our very eyes, and years before his time

    Really wish we could give him a farewell game but with Top 4 in the balance it looks very unlikely.

    Season 2016 to be Tedís last
    Sad but he has nothing left to prove.
    A true champion of the game.
    And from the few times I have met Ted, he has been a really cool guy, happy to chat, smile and laugh with fans.

    Well done Ted. How could anyone forget his magnificent efforts in the 2012 GF playing with a bunged-up foot and keep a true champion reasonably quiet. Superb contributor to this club.

    He's a Swans premiership champ. IMO, a premiership we would not of won without him.

    I played golf with one of the Swans player welfare managers the other day, he told me Ted was the nicest, and most balanced person, at the club.

    Without doubt, he's been one of the best trades this club has made in recent history.

    Great career Teddy well played.....Who knows, it may still have another highlight to come.
    Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it's time to pause and reflect... MT

    For sure, a fantastic trade, 33 games over 4 seasons with Essendon, then 228 games (so far) over 11 seasons with us.
    He left nothing in the shed, a great career.

    Teddy has been one of my favorite players since he joined.
    A genuine shame his last season has been marred by injury

    Wonder if we could get a last few Richards' Reports from him before seasons end?

    Probably would've been delisted at the end of 2010 if LRT hadn't got injured. He was struggling for form and I remember watching a reserves match where he just looked totally shot. Unbelievable effort for him to turn it around from there and play the best footy of his career.

    Terrific last term in the 2012 GF on one leg after Buddy looked like taking the game away from us.

    The Age reporting that he kept Buddy goalless in the 2012 GF. Watched a different game to the one I was at.

    Teddy had me when he was nearly killed by that collision with Fevola in a Carlton game at Etihad. I figured anyone who gets taken off the field coughing up blood would probably go alright with our bloods ethos. What a sterling contribution he's made.....
