Collingwood’s fall guy resigns



Recommended Posts


I’m hoping that they have a few wins before they play us so they don’t have to treat the QB game as their grand final although we do need their crowd.

Also would prefer they finish about 4th last so that come draft time, someone nominates Nick Daicos ahead of their pick.

Imagine if the pies finished last and then had to give the no.1 pick to gws!

Graham Wright needs a bit of a blow torch applied I think. He gets given a lot of kudos for the Hawks success but very little looking under the rug of the last 4 years of terrible trades and lost topping up of the list. 

Goes to the Pies and it all turns pear shaped, but things are tracking nicely to reappoint Nafan. Lols.

“I am very excited to take on the General Manager of Football position at Collingwood, and look forward to the opportunity to work with Nathan Buckley, the players and staff at the club,” Wright said.

“Following a strong 2020 campaign and with a fresh crop of talent from last year’s draft, I am clearly stepping into a program with a strong foundation and a desire for even greater success.”

Actually, just realised they traded their first round pick last year. Bad luck Pies.

Once Pendlebury retires, they are in a world of nowhere for quite a while

Happy Happy, Joy Joy ? 

I've always disliked Pendlebury for his off field demeanour. He strikes me as a bit of a snob, or a grump. As he's Buckley's biggest advocate and seems to be completely silent on the club's past problems, maybe Pendlebury is part of the cultural problem down there too? So on the contrary, maybe the club benefits from a fresh start without him and Buckley in the future.

I heard a whisper last Saturday that the AFL told The Filth to get rid of those 3 players last Summer or get done for Salary Cap breaches. 
even after dumping the 3, they are still in massive trouble, as in a lot more will happen. 
i will be watching with interest. 
The 3 Players they offloaded are the 3 they need the most.

Possibly, but i don’t see a lot of leadership once he goes. 
Not that I know their list closely

His post trade week interview is up there with Jacko on Open Mike as my favourite sport interviews ever. 
 

Massive fan of train wreck TV.

The way the Filth are going (and also with historical resign/re-sign posts), did anyone else have to open the thread to check before being completely sure what it was about?

Tom Morris said tonight on FOX that Guy asked to resign after trade week last year, but will stay until the end of the mid season draft. It doesn't really make sense to me and sounds like Collingwood are continuing the spin.

Hardly a fall guy - the List manager overseeing the last 3 years must go and quick.  Not saying he is solely responsible but clearly had a fair bit to do with this mess

No Salary cap, No stars - how does that work? And they don't have any young guns coming through aside from Daics x2

Expect blokes like Howe to get chucked out next

It's bloody wonderful to see the Pies flailing about. The Bummers too.

Just need the Weagles to fall in a heap to complete the trifecta.

 

How funny would it be to see Norf bid with pick 1 for Daicos, and the pies spend their entire draft points matching it?

If the pies are to sort themselves out I think the first contract they have to deal with is Grundy’s. Trade him or renegotiate the terms. Adelaide will have decent picks so I’d seriously consider cutting him loose.

Pendles still has 2-3 years left in him to lead the rebuild, find a spot off half forward perhaps but hold onto him as long as you can

De Goey is another on big money who is not justifying his wage at all. He’s not leadership material so perhaps let Carlton have for their first round pick.

Anyways, they’re in a bad way and I will not be surprised if North roll them this weekend.

I have zero inside info, but this is the only logical explanation in my opinion. How else could they find themselves in such a mess, and still be under cap pressure after ditching those 3 contracts. Either that or someone stuffed up the formula on the excel spreadsheet.

I think he has been scapegoated. The Grundy and Beams deals were ticked off at board level so above his head. He was one of a number of people responsible for this but ultimately interference from the board was the problem. That Beams deal is one of the worst ever signed by an AFL club and that one is Eddie's fault.

    OUR GRAND OLD FLAG by George On The Outer

    When an AFL Grand Final approaches, supporters look for omens to help them foresee how their team will fare in the contest.   Melbourne supporters were, until just before Saturday’s opening bounce, the best in the business at looking for positives to give them hope and direction - a natural feeling after 57 years in the wilderness. So when the Bulldogs’ streamers kept slipping from the handle of the Premiership Cup as Glen Jackovich delivered it to Optus Stadium, they wondered whether it

    THE ICING ON THE QUAKE by Whispering Jack

    It’s not Christmas yet but if the Melbourne wins its last game of the 2021 season, then many of its fans will be celebrating early. There already are some parts of our town where the pending festivity is preordained. Houses are decked out with red and blue banners and streamers, some of which appeared as early as last Saturday week, on the morning after the Demons’ magnificent 83-point crushing of Geelong in their preliminary final at Optus Stadium. While it’s great to see the numbers of lo

    CAT SKINNING by George On The Outer

    When they defeated the Geelong Cats in the 2021 AFL Preliminary Final on Friday night in Perth, Melbourne proved that there is more than one way to skin those cats.  They did it in the ruck and in the middle, they did it in the forward line, they did it in defence and around the ground, but importantly, each and every player a Demon guernsey spent his night at Optus Stadium skinning an opponent. Following the after-the-siren win against Geelong in Round 23, there was an expectation of

    THE POINTY END by The Oracle

    The AFL’s two oldest clubs, Melbourne and Geelong, face off on Friday evening in a sudden death Preliminary Final. It’s a game that promises plenty in terms of fascination and intrigue as a result of the rivalry that’s been building between the teams over recent encounters that have been tight struggles which have gone to the wire with two of them decided by after-the-siren goals. The added touch of mystery attached to this week’s meeting comes by virtue of the fact that it’s going to take

    THE VFL YEAR THAT NEVER WAS by KC from Casey

    The rising case numbers and the continuing lockdowns in Victoria and NSW spelled doom for the 2021 VFL season which went through a slow, painful demise before its recent official cancellation. After weeks of indecision, the AFL decided to pull the plug on the season with the 10-0 Bulldogs recognised as minor premier, but without a premiership cup and without awarding the J.J. Liston Medal for the best and fairest VFL player. It was somewhat fortuitous for the integrity of the competition t

    TAMING THE LIONS by George On The Outer

    With nine finals debutants in the side, the Melbourne Football Club had a daunting assignment ahead of it in the First Qualifying Final — to overcome the competition’s highest scoring side, the Brisbane Lions. In the end, the Demons accomplished the task by putting the bite on their opponents on their way to taming the Lions and recording a 33 point win that propelled them into one the two Preliminary Finals of 2021.   It was one of those debutants, Luke Jackson, who put the bite in more

    RETURN TO NEVERLAND by Whispering Jack

    The greatest Demon A HIGHWAY OF DEMONS by Whispering Jack CHAPTER SIXTEEN - RETURN TO NEVERLAND  I have a six year old grandson who recently took up the family tradition of following the Demons. He had his first taste of the game a few years ago when he went to the “G” with his parents to watch the 107-point massacre of Carlton and he went to another game in the following season which was also a W for the Dees. But his appetite for the club has grown exponentially this year and wh

    METAMORPHOSIS by Whispering Jack

    I’ve always believed that when the home and away matches come to an end, the football season takes on a completely different shape and character. During the regular season, each team’s goals progress as the weeks pass and if you’re good enough to survive and make the grade, the situation changes. The comparison can be made with the life cycle of a butterfly going through stages from egg to larva to caterpillar, cocoon and in the end to a bright and colourful creature that emerges from darkness i

    STEALING THE CATS’ CREAM by George On The Outer

    They were leading by 44 points well into the third quarter of a game to decide the minor premier, having kicked nine unanswered goals. The Cats were about to lap up their bowl of cream, dreaming of next week but the Demons led by Max Gawn had other ideas. In a stunning finish, they stole the game from under them to claim the plaudits as best team and top of ladder position. In a remarkable game, it all came down to Max having to kick the winning goal after the final siren, something which s

    SKIN THE CATS by Whispering Jack

    The task ahead for the Demons as they wend their way down the Princes Freeway to Geelong on Saturday night will be to skin the Cats. For them to come away with the points from this game would mark an historic occasion for the club as it will finish on top of the ladder for the first time since its last premiership year, 1964. And it was in that year, that a trip to Corio Bay to meet the reigning premiers in Round 12, was one of the catalysts for Melbourne’s surge to the flag. It was a top o

    REACH FOR THE STARS by George on the Outer

    It was a game of great significance for the Melbourne Football Club. A win would see them keep top spot on the ladder with one round remaining. To achieve top place in the Round for Reach when we are all inspired to “Be Like Jim” and reach for the stars was a great way of honouring one of our heroes. All the better given that it was done by way of an emphatic 41 point win against Adelaide! It is worth remembering that, but for the umpiring mistake in the previous encounter with the Crows, t

    TICKETS PLEASE by The Oracle

    A lot of water has passed under Princes Bridge in the five years since Melbourne last met Adelaide on the MCG. The Crows were riding high at the time while the Demons were mid-table and scrambling for a win to stay in the race for the finals. The 30,000 fans who had tickets to the game were thoroughly entertained by a close, high scoring affair that ended in tears for fans of the home team. Not even an eight-goal second term could help them.   Times have changed.    In the fi
