Brisbane’s colourful veteran Mitch Robinson says he has absolute respect for Richmond and nothing negative to say about the Tigers’ gun key forward Tom Lynch, whom Robinson lashed on social media last month.
Robinson, who had called Lynch “a wanker” on his twitch live stream and criticised the Tiger forward for crossing from the Suns to a good team “to get success”, told The Age that his comments had been blown out of proportion and he was not concerned about how those words would be received by Lynch and the Tigers in next week’s qualifying final.
“Not really. I haven’t thought about it since I made the comments,” Robinson said, when asked if he thought his comments would fire up Lynch. “I honestly made it on the stream when I was playing a video game. I wasn’t really thinking about too much going there with the small community that I have.
“So I haven’t actually thought about. I was cheering on Collingwood last night (against Port Adelaide) so it would have been pretty cool to win minor premiers, but regardless, we’re playing Richmond this next week. I don’t think they’re going to be thinking about it too much – a bit water off a duck’s back, I’m pretty sure.”
