Another Sunday morning, another weekend Sports supplement explaining how the Tigers were defeated once more. 1 win from nine games. After the debacle that was our first game I checked the record and my prediction was one one win from 12 games. It looks like I’m dead on target.
I’ve been a Richmond supporter all my life and a member for the past eight years. I’m accustomed to defeat but 2009 is different. I’m getting no joy at all from the footy this year; I didn’t got to Dreamtime at the G last night and I’m yet to renew Bert’s and Kennedy’s memberships. We Tiger supports are a hardy lot, it’s a badge of honour that we turn up every week regardless of how the team is going, but of late that badge has become rather rusty.
Terry’s time is up, anyone can see that. If he’s not asked to step aside in the promised mid-year review then there is something seriously wrong with the management at the club. This is the team as he made it and it’s obvious something is drastically wrong. Give someone a few games to try something new, start some more young kids, we have nothing to loose. I feel sorry for Wallace, it must be hard turning up to work every day knowing you are just warming the seat but his time has come, and gone.
We’re away next weekend for another loss in West Australia and then it’s the Bulldogs. There’s a certain appeal, and symmetry, to having his last match as Tiger coach being against the Doggies so let that be his farewell. Please.
