    They've had 35 years of mediocrity. Since Richmond last made a Grand Final in 1982, it took them until 2013 (31 seasons) to make the finals the same number of times as Fitzroy did over the same period. Fitzroy merged with the Brisbane Bears 21 years ago. They have only made the finals five times since 1982. They have only won two finals since 1982 and last won a final in 2001. They have lost seven finals in that time, including losses by 57, 70, 68 and 89 points.

    I remember going to Richmond games and getting great amusement from such things as Richo missing goals from set shots at the top of the goal square.

    Richmond's 2003 season was a standout in mediocrity. Richmond were sitting 3rd on the ladder after round 8 with a 6-2 record and the Tigers fans were confident of appearing in the finals. Richmond only won one more game for the rest of the year, a 10-goal win over the bottom side, and they finished 13th.

    No wonder Richmond supporters are so feral against their own. They've had 35 years of crap.

    Yes, Richmond autopsies are an interesting spectacle. It's like the forensic staff are equipped with machetes and most of them have crystal meth additions. Lots of demented hacking and gore, but not much method. The Port Adelaide autopsies are pretty entertaining, as well. Strangely, I've never ventured to the Collingwood board.

    Poor old Collingwood for they've for-
    gotten how to play the game ...

    Two words that should never be in the same paragraph, Collingwood and articulate!

    I know all teams have some feralish supporters but its scary when the cameras pan to cheer squad areas of teams like Collingwood and Richmond, some seriously (I'll tone this down) unattractive and demented looking individuals in their colours and don't they foam at the mouth.

    Anyway, back to winning an 8 point game ....

    Since they have a reasonable chance of losing to Port, I might have a look on the weekend. Though it might be hard not to set up a troll account.
