But Bartlett says there's no pressure whatsoever on Tigers coach Damien Hardwick after disappointing loss against North Melbourne.

Kevin Bartlett says it’s a ‘disgrace’ to talk about getting rid of Richmond Tigers coach Damien Hardwick.

"Of course he’s safe," Bartlett said responding to questions. "He's made the finals the last three years … there’s no pressure [on him] whatsoever."

"He's taken Richmond in the six years that he’s been coach, in a side hardly able to win a game down near the bottom of the ladder, to making finals for the last three years."

"It was disappointing on the weekend against north Melbourne. It was a game they could certainly win, but unfortunately four or five of their best players had their worst games of the season."

"I think they’ve got to be very aggressive during this trading period."

KB suggests that some good trades for Richmond would be Gold Coast's Harley Bennell and ruckman Zac Smith, Steve Johnson from Geelong and the Power’s Matthew Lobbe.

What do you think? Who would make a good trade for the Tigers?
