Chris Rees has been blogging for 11 years about his kids, his dog, his collection of fictional cars, and Richmond. He has attended only about 15 Tigers games (many of them putrid losses to Carlton) but has listened to them play on the radio every week since 1975.
A translator of Indonesian literature, researcher, marathon runner and compulsive follower of the fortunes of the Richmond Football Club, Andy Fuller grew-up barracking for another team.
