This would've been a nice Gesture!

Given that old Rivals Richmond and Collingwood clashed in the season Opener on Friday night and that this coincided with former player Jamie Tape who tragically died in the off season,I thought it would've been nice in Respect if both clubs could've worn Black arm bands,Anyway it was just an idea to late now.

Or go further and acknowledge his service before the game with a small ceremony of some sort. I'm sure Essendon will push for something like for that 84/85 Premiership player (i forget his name) who passed on during the week...

There's an old saying that the dog that barks loudest never bites. They did a lot of barking but we bit them pretty hard. Uruguay's attitude just showed how scared they were of us - it was their last resort."
