Hopefully Clarkson and Hawthorn part ways next year...


I think it's worth a shot. A proven coach to replace a coach who has had far too long to achieve any success. The fact is Buckley had one chance two years ago and we blew that. Our team is nowhere near good enough whether Buckley can coach or not. So a fresh start is required.

How can we (as a VIC Club) compete & beat these interstate teams at their grounds week in week out...


It’s not just that. It’s not having our own facilities and recovery tools to get the team fit every week. And now on a 4 games in 13 days bullshit program, without our facilities to get us up for each game? It’s a joke. We finally get the ‘easy’ games, yet have to play in three states in 10 days with a mounting injury toll, and sub standard recovery facilities to boot. Joke. I still can’t fathom how we got shafted with that Adelaide game in the middle. Makes ZERO sense. And for us to simply take it without a complaint? Farcical, pea hearted rubbish from our end.





This x 100.

Exactly what my better half was saying.


Teams should have had the right to forfeit the season. It's wrong to play footy anyway when people are dying.

In the same way these people who think COVID is going anywhere for the next two years. Even the CIA had a document released saying there will be lock downs until 2022. I doubt the next two seasons will see anything like normal footy. By that time the AFL will be bankrupted. But then so will most businesses.

The performance wasn't.

You don't get thrashed like that and be a contender in the next few years.


The last mongrel team Collingwood ever had was the 1990 one. Fact.

Not entirely, the League did keep footy going even during the darkest days of WW2, when the Japanese were the enemy at our gates, they did it for morale of our people, tho some clubs like Geelong withdrew, cos of the distance in those days. Some players enlisted and died in that war too

Darren Millane was our last real tough and nasty bugger, hard as nails, and his mate Dennis Banks, had we had types like them in 2018, we would have won that flag, thats what we lack now, a real hard nasty bastard, who puts fear into other players in Oppostion and has them shitting their pants, we have nobody like that now, someone like Mumford say, Razz

^Would love Sam Powell-Pepper at our club. He's a competative beast.

sadly the teams under Buckley's reign remind me of the Collingwood teams of the 60's, 70's & 80's. good enough to make the finals but not good enough to be premiers.

2002 team and 2010 team had some mongrel elements , not as tough as the 1990 team I agree, but we had some hombres in there who could scrap Leigh Brown, B.J, Scotty Burns , Jolly , G.Freeborn could all hold there own.

I think toughness at the ball is more important than being aggressively playing the man and losing perspective and the plot. Go much harder at it and put your body on the line at every contest. Take the game on at every opportunity. This is much better than winning the bloody fight but losing the game. Rolling Eyes

Whoever goes in lower and harder for longer wins. Isn't that the saying?

A bit pessimistic to base your assertion on just one poor game dude. Lets see how we fight back from this and analyse the results over the next few weeks. We have a fair way to go yet to correct one aberration.
