Nathan Buckley Steps Down as Collingwood Coach



Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

He had his shot and a little bit of luck would have made him a revered premiership coach but same applied for Ross Lyon. Largesse disappeared quickly for failure to back up on strong finals campaigns and once sugar daddy left it was game over.

You’re assuming that he has the players in his corner… they certainly haven’t been playing like they’re with him.

I love the media frenzy now, all trying to be relevant.

Ryan & Niall beat them to the punch, got the scoop...well done to them.

Stevo a long way back treading in quicksand...waiting for Browne and the rest to pile on.

Regardless of if the players play for him on Monday they are all auditioning for the new coach from now till they are appointed. Fully expect the pies to come out firing on Monday in a way we haven’t seen this year

I heard this news this morning when listening to SEN whilst driving back from Geelong to Drysdale and I had a chuckle to myself at the thought of some Demonland posters going into a frenzied panic attack at the thought of Collingwood all of a sudden becoming a super team on Monday and beating the Demons. If Melbourne were to lose, it would only be because they forget about the way they have played for the first 12 weeks and apply no pressure and change their game style.

Collingwood will be more dangerous on Monday because of this

Nah, I wouldn't sweat it.

 They wont be. 

The emotion of playing for someone might be at the start of the game for around 30-45 seconds... the adrenal response. And then...normal. service. resumes.

You see it all the time in the first few minutes of Grand Finals... the stress response, scrappy football etc etc... 

Player's cannot keep telling themselves throughout a match 'I've got to do it for Buckley, I've got to do it for Buckley', its exhausting and useless as you're not on task.

If we lose, its ostensibly because we lost it due to a lack of pressure or adherence to structure. 

If we lose, we lose on our terms, not because Collingwood have won.

Can you imagine if we lost Yze during the year?

Perhaps we should be more worried if Troy Chaplin stepped down based on what Gawn, Brayshaw and TMac said to the press after the Brisbane game? He is credited over the last 4 years as having banged on about defence as the ball moves from our forward to defense areas. That pressure contributes significantly to our interceptions in defence as the ball comes in under pressure without good direction. Players have said basically that they are finally "getting" what Chaplin has been saying. See 2:44 below and the question from Lloyd referencing Troy...

Amazing how negative thoughts suddenly start emerging over Buckley’s resignation, something mooted for months. 

Neuroticism still runs deep in the veins of many Dees supporters. 

Losing Yze, losing on QB, etc etc. 

Even if we win the flag, folks will say that we will fall off the cliff in 2022. Or that winning brings defeat that much closer. 

Danny from Droop St morphs into Roger from Demonland.

I'll throw a spanner..

If we lost Yze to a senior gig, would you take Buckley as a midfield coach?

YZE is a key strategic resource. That loss would be far greater than midfield advice and direction.

Buckley can clearly coach and should probably be a premiership coach already. But he's in an absolute basket case of a club at the moment with upheaval at every level of the club since the exit of Eddie.

It reminds me of The Death of Stalin.

I feel sorry for Buckley. He seems like a decent guy and he's a good coach, but the club he's part of is a complete dumpster fire.

Supporters need to relax.

This will be massively draining on Collingwood players during the week. There will be many thinking about their future given the events that have transpired at Collingwood since last year's trade period. The club is a shambles atm with everything they've faced.

If anything, this gives Goody and co another reason to G our guys up and prepare them for a hot first quarter. Clearly Collingwood will throw everything at as in the first quarter and if we can match their intensity (assuming it'll be there), then we will roll them after that.

Collingwood have bullied us on many occasions, we're the oldest rivals in the game.

It's time to give it to them.

Great post JG.

Our side will simply kick into gear  and Max will have them do what they have been doing for 3 months.  The Pies mindset, if its platying out of their skin for Bucks, will simply be an indictment on them and the football dept at the Pies.

My Collingwood supporting brother will be [censored]-a-hoop about this. Though from the way he speaks, there is a huge and vocal plurality of Pies fans who think Eddie and Bucks walk on water, and will be incensed at this.

I'd say this will be another wrinkle in the storyline about the board challenge. Mark this down as something the Browne ticket will use in their board challenge: the treatment of favorite sons despite checkered CV's.

Can't see Clarko getting an offer, he has coached the Hawks into 2nd last.

And I would be very surprised if Ross Lyons message hasn't passed its use by date....

Sam Mitchell?

Personally, I don’t like the whole “Let’s do it for (insert name)” as it puts undue extra pressure on the players. When Jimmy Stynes passed away all you’d hear is Let’s do it for Stynesie! The next game we played, we lost. I can’t imagine how much worse this made the players feel. 😢

I agree with this.

Korda needed something to differentiate his board from the Eddie board. This is them cutting the cord from the Eddie days in the eyes of supporters.

    HOT PIES FREEZE DEES by George on the Outer

    In the Annual Big Freeze game in support of Neale Daniher's fight against MND, it was Collingwood who froze the ambitions of the Demons, and it now challenges them to thaw out their prospects in the second half of the season. Even though Melbourne opened the scoring account, it was quickly countered by Collingwood, as the Demons appeared flat. And even though they held a minor lead at the first break, it was only through a couple of fortunate efforts, but nothing more.  All around

    FROZEN by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne supporters are an unusual lot. Their lived experiences over years of witnessing their team’s humiliation at the hands of the competition’s bullies have left them suspended in a Bizarro World beset by a cognitive distortion know as 'mental filtering'. This is a phenomenon that occurs when people focus exclusively and blindly on long held belief systems. They refuse to accept that conditions have changed so when the evidence is present before their very own eyes, their minds are frozen.

    CHANGES: 2021 MID SEASON by The Oracle 

    Since the end of the 2020 free agency, trade and draft period, AFL clubs have had two further bites of the cherry to top up their lists — the supplemental selection period (SSP) and the 2021 mid-season rookie draft (MSD). The main idea behind both was to enable the fulfillment of immediate needs as a result of injuries or unexpected retirements but this year, we have seen the added dimension of straight out recruitment for the future rather than for now. As a consequence, a number of ready

    LION TAMERS by George On The Outer

    In an enthralling game between two top four sides, it was the Demons who tamed the Lions, and propelled themselves into the position of premiership favourite even though the season is barely past the halfway mark. This is because Melbourne keeps on beating those teams around them who might provide a challenge. Not only that, it keeps winning with emphatic displays of resilience and toughness that have not been seen in a Demons side for many, many years. Challenged in the first half of

    DUELING BANJOS by Whispering Jack

    In the classic Australian poem, A B “Banjo” Paterson sought the answer by letter to a question concerning the whereabouts of a drover named “Clancy”. The response from Clancy’s shearing mate was written with a thumb-nail dipped in tar: “Clancy’s gone to Queensland droving, and we don’t know where he are.” Most of us would have felt a little bit that way earlier in the week wondering about the possible whereabouts of the Melbourne team for this week’s encounter against Brisbane.

    DOGGED DEEFENCE by George on the Outer

    “No-one let the Dogs out” was the Demons response for the (former) top side.  The Melbourne defence, capably lead by Steven May and Jake Lever simply suffocated any hopes that the Western Bulldogs might have had about leading the competition at the mid-way point. Instead, it is the Demons who now sit at the top of the ladder, again a game clear, while their supporters are starting to believe that this side is the real deal.  Pity is that those same supporters couldn’t watch their team demol

    LOOK AWAY DEMON FANS by The Oracle

    Last week I predicted a comfortable Melbourne victory for its game against Adelaide. “Something in the order of 61 points”, I opined. Well, after the game, I checked the wording of my preview very carefully from all angles and I have now concluded that I have to issue an apology to Demon fans. I got it wrong. I’m not bitter and twisted about my error in failing to predict the coaching errors, defensive mistakes, lack of forward pressure and, of course, the complete failure of those officiat

    CALM BEFORE THE CALM by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons overcame a sluggish first half to run over the Sydney Swans in the second to record an emphatic 40 point victory, maintaining their undefeated record and retaining top spot on the VFL ladder. The game originally listed as part of the Round 4 fixture but delayed due to a Covid19 scare in Sydney and the scrappy way in which the teams approached the contest suggested that the players were still in delay mode. This applied in particular to most of the 12 AFL listed Casey player

    NOTHING TO CROW ABOUT by George On The Outer

    Melbourne’s nine game winning streak  came to an end in Adelaide with a one point loss to the Crows. Losing to a team that had only won three games for the season, having lost five in a row was certainly nothing to crow about.  All around the ground players collectively put in their poorest performance for the year.  The loss of Christian Salem before the match was critical, as his replacement Nev Jetta is a mere shadow the player he once was. The mind is still willing, but the body no

    CRYING OVER SPILT MILK by The Oracle

    It had to happen sooner or later. Melbourne has been riding high through the season to date and, with the exception of a small bunch of nuff nuffs who are never satisfied with anything, the club has attracted more positive vibes from the community in these nine weeks than it did in the past decade. So it came as no surprise to see some low grade stirring of the sort which only the media could come up with at a time like this. The on line site Zero Hanger came up with an article that opined,

    CATNIPPED by KC from Casey

    After winning big away from home across the first three rounds of the new look VFL competition, the Casey Demons were forced to dig deep against Geelong VFL at Casey Fields on Saturday. The traditional AFL based teams were evenly matched, fielding ten listed players apiece and this was reflected in the evenness of the game and the final margin which saw the home side leading by a solitary point on the final siren. Casey suffered an early blow when Jake Bowey came off with what ap

    BLUES IN THE RED by George On The Outer

    While the Demons’ undefeated run continues unabated now at 9-0 their emphatic 26 point victory pushed the Blues to their sixth loss for the season and deeper into the red for the year. While Melbourne opened proceedings with an early goal, the Blues responded with the next two to grab an early lead.  However, as has happened in so many games this year, the Demons fought back to lead by just over a goal come the first break. This narrow lead was part of a streak either side of quarter t
