Former Crows midfielder and
Suns recruit Hugh Greenwood responds to Adelaide director Mark Ricciuto's claims of him being too old and slow following Gold Coast's thrashing of his former side.
Responding to a tweet that said Greenwood had won nearly as many clearances as the entire Adelaide midfield in the first half, he responded: "If only I were younger and quicker @markricciuto."
Ricciuto immediately replied, saying: "Haha all good enjoy the win mate!! By the way if you were quicker and younger you might have got more then (sic) 10 touches as well?"
Greenwood then responded to Ricciuto's jibe with: "What a shock!! Someone at the Crows more concerned about disposals than actual impact on the game. Who would have thought."
The Suns recruit then tweeted again that the exchange was "all good banter" and that he had "no hard feelings" towards the Crows.

member Mark Ricciuto says everyone at the club, from the top down, is under the microscope after a disappointing 2019 season.
"You have to make sure you have the right footy department," Ricciuto told Triple M radio.
"If anyone has got to go, whether it's me, Pykey (coach Don Pyke) or Brett Burton or the captain (Taylor Walker), the club is more important than the individual.
"The club will do an internal review as we always do, and they'll do an external review with people who have got nothing to do with the football club and then get the information from both and make a decision from there.
"Everyone wants the right thing for the Adelaide Football Club and I'm certainly not going to stand in the way. If I'm the problem I'll be gone, and I'm sure if Pykey knew (that), he'd be gone as well."

A memorial service for Adelaide Crows coach Phil Walsh has wound up at Adelaide Oval, with guests describing it as an opportunity to pay tribute to a wonderful man who lived his life as a football person.
The service was for invited guests only with family, friends and members of the football community among those attending.
Former Port Adelaide football manger Rob Snowdon finished the final eulogy at the memorial by thanking Adelaide board member Mark Ricciuto.
"He's had an extraordinary life, we know it's too short … a very fulfilled life," Snowdon said.
"He really wanted to be a senior coach, we'd talk about it; he was passionate, he wanted to do it, he wanted to be a senior coach but no one ever asked him.
"I don't know if Mark Ricciuto's here, but 'Roo' thanks for asking him. He can tick that box."

Mark Ricciuto will join the Adelaide's board on July 1, declaring he has always wanted to "give back" to the club.
The three-time best and fairest winner said that having developed his various hotels to the point where he could delegate their management, the timing was right to join the board.
"I've seen more games a week over the last seven years than I ever did throughout my playing [career], I've seen all footy clubs form the bottom to the top in all states and I've learnt a lot of things about that," Ricciuto said.
"The footy clubs have changed and footy's changed [since retirement] but I think the core things are still very, very similar.
"Over the next few months of the year important decisions will be made that will shape next year."

Adelaide legend Mark Ricciuto says players should strike in protest of Jack Viney's two-game suspension for his bump on Tom Lynch.
"This ruling on Jack Viney needs to be overturned … and the actual rule itself needs to be re-written so that they're not getting suspended and I reckon they've got until the end of the week to do it," Ricciuto said.
"Our game is a contact sport, accidents happen, we don't want elbows, we don't want king hits, we don't want general thuggery – what we want is fair players attacking the ball as hard as they can … we don't want blokes having to pull out of contests for fear of getting suspended.
"It's a disgrace and it needs to change."

"If James Hird does not resign by Thursday someone else might make the decision for him," Ricciuto said on Adelaide's TripleM.
Hird hits back at those claims, labelling them "baseless rumours and speculation".
"I'm not shocked by anything in this process, it all seems to be a lot of rumour and innuendo that has no fact to it," Hird said.

Now a Port Adelaide assistant coach, Josh Carr recalls the day 10 years ago when the Showdown rivalry with Adelaide spilled over at the Ramsgate Hotel between himself and Mark Ricciuto.
"We had been drinking ... things did get out of control a bit. We went outside and we had a bit of a chat and that chat turned into bigger things," Carr said.
"Between myself and Roo, it was probably more a bit of a wrestle than anything ... there was actually no punches thrown."

"After '98, I didn't come back to Melbourne [for grand final week] until I won the Brownlow in 2003.
"I had such a good time at the grand final that week, so I've been back every year since and I can't see myself missing it for a while."
