Footy is a broad church with room for all



I’m with you on this DiD, GWS was a waste but now playing the kids starts the rebuild. Noticed bombers had a few in the 40-50 games bracket and that’s what we need to do. I’m ok with a slide down the ladder for a few years while the club gets its act together on all fronts, including new coaches.

Collingwood are an unstable rabble

Time to Go is understatement of the year, for Ed, Bux & some of the board (don’t agree all should go).
I liked the players going solo, & reflect it’s a very, very long time coming. I am still filthy on Treloar & Stevo but sad for Herritier & was shocked by the Robbie Muir report last year. Pies not only club but often loudest & magnet for chaos.
Some really good comments already, the call out is being able to just go to the footy to enjoy the footy without the noise from our own boof heads.

Eddie McGuire backs down from controversial 'proud' comments at presser

Nah, we’ve turned a corner?

Darcy is Moore of a forward than you think

Very funny & very true.
Yes, even Ablett as he couldn’t get cats over the line in ‘89 despite 9 goals?

Darcy is Moore of a forward than you think

Bit more positive which is nice.
Moore was good early in forward line & think he bagged a few 5 goal games. But he was young & good move, typically late, to move him back.
He is only lock for any position, agree CHF the hardest to play & find but reckon we need another year at CHB.
Tend to agree flags come from tight defence first but need both.
Roughead is very loose when out of square so big hole at FB. Good pick up but not sure it was meant as a forever spot. Mihocek was recruited as FB but never got there.
I want DeGoey in the middle with resting up front. Big year from Sier I hope. Bust open that bounce & slam it forward quick. Anyone who handballs should be shot.

Planets aligning for a stint with the pies? Be a great way for Eddie to exit.

Trade and draft review: Hawks' happy haul

Malcolm Blight won everything across two states. You’re right though on superstars not seeming to be able to manage mortals.

What is Nathan Buckley's pass mark in 2021?

Bit rough on Pendles mate.

What is Nathan Buckley's pass mark in 2021?

I read that also, we (pies) get jack yet others like bloody Carlton give away a free new membership. Not much effort to win back the hearts & minds is disappointing.

What is Nathan Buckley's pass mark in 2021?

Les, nothing less than a flag saves the coach, not that a flag saved his predecessor. Club is in re-build so pressure is off while we take a ride down the ladder for a bit.
HNY to all.

Why Collingwood supporter frustration needs to be taken seriously

Come on fellas, of course it’s incompetence at the highest level but that doesn’t mean we give up. Floreat Pica Forever, despite the current crop of clowns running the show.

Why Collingwood supporter frustration needs to be taken seriously

Summed it up pretty well Les, sadly.

The fallacies behind Collingwood's trade reasoning

Not laughing Dingo

Is this 'Guy' the one we should be blaming?

Another fair spray Les, but this time I agree with all of it. Wrote a hateful piece last night that was knocked back, fair call too.
Buckley cannot coach, he does not have the common touch & cannot change the momentum within a game, he is mechanical & not intuitive. His support staff do not seem to help, the two fine fellas left who like Bux will realise it’s over, we thank you all for your service.
The Pres has been great but he is now our Jack Elliott, at least Big Jack stole a flag but we can’t even do that.
I’m never changing colours, would rather die.
But I will take an Adan Treloar membership at Footscray to let him know that some of us are appalled at what our club has done. It is shameful.
As for Stephenson, as you say Les, a young man finding his way who has talent & speed & goal sense to burn. Just incompetence of the highest order to let him go.
And for what, a Chook raffle & meat tray of picks? No worries, downgrading all memberships if can be so stupid.
On key position players we have one that is a lock, Darcy Moore.
Finally, who is Bed Guy? Architect or Fall Guy? Either way, goodbye.
Side x Side still means something to me Les.
Despite the current free fall into oblivion, we will rise again but need to cop a fair kicking down the greasy pole because we are light years away from anything special.
Broken hearted but not broken, just very pissed

The tyranny of the Magpies

Agree with all of it. Treloar is a good player & looked to be getting the strength & acceleration back in his legs after double hammy. Was shopped around a few years ago & they’re doing it again, just poor.
Time to open club up with managed change at the top. Got a bad feeling about 2021 so I reckon we let it fall, secure some draft picks, change coaches & start again. But keep Treloar & honour the contract.

Collingwood and Treloar - sorry for the three flags you missed Ads but we seem to have overspent

If unfounded then would expect the club to put the issue to bed. Perhaps it’s the ruthless win at all cost streak the premise of the article says our club has lacked, so if that’s the case then welcome to a new world order.
But I’m keeping Treloar and would sack 10 ahead of him + the assistant coaches & work on presidential succession.

Hollow Collingwood celebrations show where we truly stand

Thx Les, I enjoy the read if not always the sentiment. Like most of you I have been to many more GF losses than wins, my personal tally since ‘77 is 2 wins, 2 draws & 8 losses.
But I feel neither hollow nor humble.
What a ride this club gives us, the energy when singing with the faithful.
Including that 2018 win from nowhere against the tigers. It’s the best I felt since being a kid at Vic Park in the ‘70’s & ‘80’s when the pies would come roaring back to win. Remember the Ross Brewer goal v Roy’s in semi to win by a point, Daicos v cats x 2 prelims, the Jack Anthony winner v Adelaide, the draw then win at Subiaco v WCE & again v eagles this year – we had zero rights to win that one, but we did.
And welcome everyone to pile in regarding the shellacking cats gave us the next week, but the week before was magic & you just never know what you’re gonna get.
Keep the Faith fellas!!

Hollow Collingwood celebrations show where we truly stand

Hey Tyler, agree pies should be in hunt for Brown, just doesn’t make sense why north are doing it. Could be Brown doesn’t want to go to pies either.
Not sure our midfield has proved as great as it was talked up. Lost 2018 after WCE took control in middle & I think that’s where our problems start. Sorry to the faithful but I think we are quite a few players short of really challenging.

It's black and white for Collingwood: Add Brown

Surprised it’s 3/0 for cats.
Clear that the non tigers want the fairytale for Ablett, Harry & Danger but ,,,,
Tigers had a really tough run with Port vs 6/8 scratch match qtrs for cats which is almost a bye over last two weeks?
Feel sick but tigers x 25.

The Roar's AFL expert tips and predictions: Grand final

Agree with most of that, especially Houli. I had Liam Picken ahead of Boyd but that win was not something I thought I would ever see.

The Roar's AFL expert tips and predictions: Grand final

I think AFL grassroots is much bigger in Sydney or SE Qld than rugby codes in all other Aussie rules states. Took a while for swans to make it but don’t their crowds rate better than NRL week to week?

AFL Trades: Jeremy Cameron to Geelong will be a history-maker

That’s probably right, something about getting the kids set up but once established it’s grown adult time. Difference between Melbourne & Sydney not as much as 20 years ago & Brisbane is no hardship, looks like a great place to play.
