    Did you guys start doing that when you were the "Kangaroos FC", and just kept it since?

    Kangaroos FC, what a low moment for them that was.

    Is it huge post-Dal? Not being a dick etc, genuinely curious. Haven't followed too much, but I can imagine that the hype around the club and its base will be similar to when we got Cousins at start of 09 (talking from my experience alone obviously). I remember everyone was puuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuumped.



    Great year that was

    The hype for North is coming externally though, Richmond's hype has always come from their own supporters.

    Can't remember this many articles about North in an off season. Seems like every news service is carrying a story about North every week.

    Helps that we have supporters I guess, whereas North need external assistance


    In all seriousness though, got a lot to do with the fact everyone knows Roos underachieved last year. On paper, should definitely make the 8, and prob top 6.

    Think the coaching additions have a lot to do with it as well, adding Tudor & Brown and having Ling do some part time work, there aren't many excuses if we don't perform.

    No doubt I'm late on this issue, but what's the deal with the new preseason format? It's just a bunch of practice games dressed up like a "pre-season competition" so they can put a sponsor's name on it basically?

    Yep.

    The 18 games in 18 days should be good from a television point of view though.

    Not sure how I'm going to cope watching that and the Block.
