Nathan Buckley Steps Down as Collingwood Coach

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.

I'm more worried about Collingwood playing out of their skins for Buckley's last game.

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.

If any scene from that movie is analogous to Collingwood, it would be this one.😄

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.

    CITIUS, ALTIUS, FORTIUS by The Oracle

    This weekend, the Melbourne Football Club was supposed to embark on a tour that started with what looked like an innocent trip to the country’s sunny Gold Coast. However, the Covid19 pandemic intervened to bring them back home for this week at least. Next week, it’s off to the West Coast but conspiracy theorists are already suggesting that this interstate sojourn could take the team all the way across the country over the next month and indeed, there are cynics who even believe that it could bec

    THE YEAR THE SNOWFLAKES FELL by Whispering Jack

    The snow that fell on the slopes of Victoria’s mountain districts in the winter of 1965 was not considered good enough to satisfy the enthusiasts. The really heavy snow that season came in two waves further north in July and August. The first descended on the national capital where “Pig Iron Bob” still held sway. Snow flurries touched the landscape all the way across the Blue Mountains. The next big snow extended further north up to the hills around Mackay in Queensland. Snowflakes fell inside t

    DEES GIVE DOGS A BONE by George On The Outer

    First place versus second on the ladder promised to be a precursor to what can be expected in the coming finals race.  However, it was the Demons who faltered and gave the Bulldogs a bone to feed their hunger just weeks out from the end of the season. The win also sent the Dogs to the top of the ladder, a position they are unlikely to cede in the coming weeks, given their fixture. While Melbourne may now struggle to keep a spot in the top four with its draw and will likely depend on the res

    THE WORM WILL TURN by The Oracle

    When I was asked to preview this game, I wasn’t sure whether it was going to be played in Darwin, on the Gold Coast or the MCG. I had no idea as to the identity of Melbourne’s opponent. This would have made for one hell of an interesting match preview so I’m glad that the AFL managed to reorganize its fixture to enable a game … any game at all … to proceed in Round 19. We’ll worry about the Gold Coast Suns or whoever they put us up against when the weekend’s done and dusted and if and when

    DRAWN AND DEEFLATED by George on the Outer

    1st v 17th ... it would seem a sure one way contest between the Hawks and the Demons but it was not to be with the game finishing in a draw, the only positive being the Demons still retain their top spot on the ladder. Melbourne was taught a football lesson by Al Clarkson, who with limited resources, just instructed his players to scrap, fight and surge the ball forward.  It stifled the Melbourne free flowing style of play and denied them the opportunities they could normally expect.

    PINK RAIN by Whispering Jack

    There is no certainty about life under a pandemic. You wake up one morning without a care in the world; the sun’s shining and it’s a beautiful day. An hour later, everything’s up in the air, the entire state is on high alert and the apartment complex next door’s in lockdown. The simple decision you had to make about buying a ticket to the footy at the weekend suddenly might get put on the back burner. There are other things in life to prioritise and on top of that, they’re predicting rain for th

    COR BLIMEY by KC from Casey

    In years to come, the old timers will talk in wonderment about the “Avalon Avalanche” that hit Werribee’s Avalon Airport Oval on a mild winter’s afternoon at about ten minutes after the halfway mark of the game between the local Tigers and their cross town rivals, the Demons from Casey. At that moment in time, the game was poised as if on a knifepoint. Up until the main interval, it had been the visiting team which had maintained the lead from the start but it had struggled to entirely asse

    POWER FAILURE by George on the Outer

    South Australians should be well familiar with the damage that storms can do to the power supply.  But Port Power forgot those lessons on Thursday night football as they watched the Melbourne storm descend upon them from across the border and ruin their hopes of a top four placing. Just as equally, the win to the Demons cemented their spot in the top two and sent out the message that a team who had been going around in circles for the past couple of weeks, has in fact, turned into a cyclone

    CASEY SUFFER FIRST DEFEAT IN TWO YEARS

    The circumstances were a little unusual last Saturday night as KC from Casey was unavailable to report on the Casey Dees due to work commitments. On the ground things were somewhat unusual as well given that, although there was a game to be won on the night, preparations were also being made for the forthcoming Thursday night clash against Port Adelaide with Ben Brown rested for large slabs of the evening. It turned out perhaps, to be a stroke of genius for Melbourne with Brown making a strong c

    WEATHERING THE STORM by Mel Rundle

    The magic of Melbourne’s magnificent start to 2021 is beginning to wear off. In its past six matches it lost to three teams that were outside the eight, out of form —  teams which it had very little trouble bearing last year. This week, the temperature is turned up even higher with the hard fought spot in the top four at risk. The really ominous factor about the Demons’ upcoming Thursday night meeting with Port Adelaide this week is that it is due to take place at the very place where its dec

    FEE-FI-FO-FUM by George on the Outer

    “Fee-fi-fo-fum, without a Full Forward the Premiership can’t be won!” So said the GWS Giants, as they exposed Melbourne’s fatal deficiency with a nine point win at the MCG.  In past weeks Melbourne has been barely able to gloss over the lack of a serious target in front of goal, while others were able to contribute.  But in a near repeat of the game from the previous week, players running up the ground simply had no-one to kick the ball to, when all that was needed was that one tall target.

    MUCH ADO ABOUT EVERYTHING by Whispering Jack

    Let's face it. We Melbourne supporters are a demanding lot. Here we are with our team on top of the ladder with a record of 12 wins and 2 losses, a decent percentage and a fair run home for a team with finals credentials. We have a fit list with lots of in form players, many of who are in contention for All Australian and other high honours, the team’s playing with purpose and cohesion and its VFL affiliate is undefeated and going gangbusters.  Still, we're all walking around with conc
