I guess I wouldn't blame him for not selecting Freo....

Don't blame Freo, blame the WAFC and CH7/Worst media for allowing Freo to be corrupted by outside influences (Rosich, Lyon etc.)

Hardly a surprise. Isn’t he currently living in Melbourne and his father never played for the Dockers. Unfortunately this seems like a straight forward decision regardless of the relative merits of the clubs.

Pretty easy decision for him to make, one club has won 3 of the last 4 years, the other hasn’t played in the finals since 2015.
Unfortunately we are not south Freo, so there is no romantic tie to play with us.

Never thought he was going to choose us, so not upset.

This is the biggest non-story of recent weeks. Young Rioli goes to school in Melbourne, he's always been a Richmond supporter, his dad is one of Richmond's all time greats, he is close to cousin Daniel who is a multiple Premiership current player for Richmond and he loves living in Melbourne. His ties to Freo are very brief to say the least, his dad originally started out with South Freo over 40 years ago and ????, what else. He declared a long time ago his intention to play for Richmond and now he has supposedly snubbed Freo. What a ridiculous statement? If he had come to us now that would have been a snub but he was always going to Richmond and anyone believing otherwise is seriously delusional.
A more realistic target is Kobe Farmer who has stronger ties to us than Melbourne and has apparently declared a preference for a career at Fremantle. I look forward to us snaring him at next year's draft.

Can someone please explain how Ben Cousins was able to choose West Coast?
Wonder where he would be now if he chose Geelong or Fremantle.

Probably because Bryan played for Perth, not East Freo.
