Welcome to RTSSG Events & Memorabilia
In the beginning…….
I started the Richmond Tigers Serious Supporters Group back in 2014 when we were sitting 3 and 10 on the ladder and all the Tiger love in the world was almost completely exhausted. Yes we weren’t travelling well but I was simply disgusted the way Social Media was treating the Tigers and how we were treating one another. So I decided to start my own privately run, fan operated page, administered by individuals who loved and supported the Richmond Football Club as I did and where only serious Richmond supporters would be entitled to be members.
It was to be a group where all things RICHMOND and not the AFL was to be discussed, with robust, lively conversations and debates carried out in a respectful, fun and friendly manner through thoughtful positive posts and comments.
The group would have no affiliation at all to the Richmond Football Club playing in the Australian Football League but the Tigers would be worshipped and adored by all who joined. I had hoped for maybe a couple of hundred likeminded Tigers to talk to back then the way I wanted to do so and as of today we sit on the cusp of 12,000 members!
I must say it’s been a bit overwhelming how the RTSSG site has taken off! I just wanted to set a really high standard for the group and I think the reason people are really warning to it is because it’s interesting, informative, relevant, up to date, and a heap of fun for all ages. I hope you already can tell enough about me that I am a serious tiger and I want a place to talk to other tiger supporters in a safe, clean and supportive environment.
RTSSG is committed to keeping the Richmond Tigers Serious Supporters Group page a Fun, Clean, Safe, Family friendly area for "ALL" Serious Tigers supporters and we employ an absolute ZERO tolerance level to opposition supporters, bad language, aggression, negativity or the bagging and abuse of other Members, Team Members, Club Admin or the Richmond Football club in general both past and present.
We take our footy pretty seriously and we have tough guidelines and rules that in place so that all can enjoy and we make no apologies for our stance and I will not budge from that as many people really enjoy RTSSG the way it is now.
What we love on this site is serious supporters showing their passion for the Yellow and Black who conduct themselves in a lively, clean and fun manner; we encourage respectful debate of any items or topics relating to the Richmond Tigers Football Club.
We also particularly love Serious Tigers Supporters sharing with us through either posts or comments their questions, opinions, enthusiasm, memories, stories, memorabilia, favourite Tiger photos and yes even your frustrations! But most of all we love members who respect other members.
Well three years later and the Tigers are the reigning premiers after having belted the Adelaide Crows in 2017 and this part of the journey is complete and now we move to the next stage….. But that’s another story.
