It feels pretty good, having five wins in a row. But I am refusing to look at the ladder.
OK I admit it, I just looked at the ladder. And its disappointing that we are still 12th after 5 wins. So I will not be looking at it ANY MORE. I don’t think we deserve to play finals, and if we finish ninth and people want to make jokes about it, well that says more about THEM than about Richmond doesn’t it. Doesn’t it?
So – each of these wins is important in itself, for building confidence, and for welding the boys together in a way that those dispiriting losses never could. You can build a great spirit in a losing team if it is always coming off the park having given 100% – but the way we played earlier in the year was just a club-killer and a culture-killer.
Keep it up I say, just keep bringing home the four points and singing the song, and stuff the ladder.
