As a passionate Richmond supporter, that story made the hair on the back of my neck stand up, and brought a tears of joy to my eyes.
I’ve been following them all my life since the mid 70s, so growing up, I thought they’d always be in the finals... after 82 the drought began..I can definitely relate to the irate callers and also the words of dimmer feeling the emarrassment for the team with some terrible losses over the years. But I never gave up on the Tigers, and now my 12 and 9 yo sons both barrack for the Tigers. I took them to the qualifying and prelim finals, I couldn’t get them a ticket to the GF, but I got one and witnessed my first Grand Final, and a win at that. The feeling of joy at the end of the game was amazing, as I had begun to think they would not win another in my lifetime. I’m really liking these don’t believe in never short film stories, I think they’re the best promotional material since the “I’d like to see that!” Adds from years ago. Go Tigers!!! Yes I’ll be at the game tomorrow night.
