Game Chat – Port v Richmond

Written by Motts on August 8 2020

Where and when: Adelaide Oval, 4:35pm (AEST)

Last time they met: R18 2019, Richmond 15.11 (101) DEF Port 9.9 (63)

What it means for Power: A win over the reigning premier would be a huge feather in the cap of the Power who lead the ladder but don’t seem to be getting the respect normally reserved for such a position holder.

What it means for The Tigers: Second place on the ladder albeit temporarily and the chance to continue to scare the bejesus out of the rest of the comp that the Richmond giant has awoken.

Motts Watch: Dusty. He is SO good to watch.

Mottsy’s Tip: Tigers by 10 in an arm wrestle

      1. interesting – depending on trades and places to fill, frees up $143K and can use that for Goldy and another premium

        Gawn injured as it is and 240BE will lose cash – bring him back in again later if he looks good … thoughts and reasons why the TD’s??


        1. Good poll Macca
          I would have considered trading Gawn and picking him up again if we had O’Brien Mark 2 or Marshall was sole ruck but can’t trust young body of English and not sure if Goldstein can sustain current form and both still to have bye
          Hopefully Draper is named though and with less free kicks against 100 may be achievable as back up


          1. yep – Gawny hasn’t been looking too good last 2 matches though and this injury may be more than they are telling us … he may miss more than 1 match.

            Goldy back to Gawn when / if he has a bye if Gawn’s fit and hopefully after he plays another match and drops a fair bit … it’s an interesting conundrum! I’m not sure on the best approach and have hesitated on the call as my move would have been to drop pickett for another premo mid with the cash freed up … hmmm


            1. Good on you Macca.
              The whole idea of this side is to provoke some discussion and left field thinking
              I have Aarts and Picket as emergencies in this game so if they have sub par performances it will give me something to think about


              1. gee strong numbers to have them as E’s … you must have decent bench cover on the lines? Sadly I got dragged in to the skinner trade in last round too …

                Gawn trade is still very much on my list for tomorrow with other options to go out and bring in!


        2. Dear Macca,
          If it wasn’t best 18 would have done it. (Both)
          Have Goldy in one league and Grundy in the other with Draper as backup.
          One league has 1/2 million, the other 6k ITB.
          Can you please have a chat with the missus and find out what she recommends and get back to us.
          Yours Sincerely


      2. Footy question, for Victorian clubs is there any difference this year finishing 1 through 4?

        If Richmond finish higher than Port do we get to play them ‘at home’ at the Gabba versus in Adelaide?


      3. already dropped 50k
        if hes only out for 1 week better off bringing in a rookie somewhere else
        2 or more weeks he would be worth moving on


  1. Worth bringing in Woodcock? I need a forward rookie, so it’s either him or one of the North boys in Hosie or Walker, but at least I know Woodcock is playing……

    TU: Woodcock will do
    TD: Wait and get either Hosie or Walker – they won’t both be dropped?


    1. Happy to pass on Pickett’s 5k price rise and new big BE to get Tom Mitchell. Pickett might even be dropped.

      Kenny Roger’s classic song The Gambler comes to mind “Got to know when to hold them and gotta know when to fold them”


  2. Half Time – Power lead 8.6.54 to Tigers 7.3.45 (and how many coaches are spewing along with me at the moment for not bringing in Woodcock? Decided to get either Hosie or Walker instead and now reported that they are both being dropped this week).

  3. Can anyone tell me free kick count , apparently Richmond are getting favoured. Don’t worry, just checked 10 -6 ports way.


    1. Hey Bruce not a fan of either team but it’s just very contentious decisions that should be going one way and then go the other and they go up the other end and kick a goal. 2 or 3 contentious decisions that were appalling in my eyes that led directly to goals.


  4. i hate the tigers but gotta hand it to em
    playing in front of a feral crowd
    port playing like its an elimination final
    & the tigers are up to it so far


  5. Full Time – Port too strong, running out winners by 21 points
