That stupid column will generally have 9 likes and 9 dislikes every round; basically one for every game. His dislike for our game was the form of Johannisen and his like was er, um, nothing!! Didn't even rate a mention.

He really is pretty salty on us. You would think the way he lambasted Lynch last week that he would have the grace to mention that he played well this week but no.........
He’s like most of them. More ego than anything else, and praising us after how hard he went last week means he has to admit he was wrong. It must really *smile* him off, though, and that puts a smile on my face.

I’ve got a guy I work with who’s a coterie member at Bumwood. Well connected guy. He’s been telling me for years that Buckley is an autocrat that eats, sleeps and breathes football and expects everyone else to do the same. Reckons he ends up fatiguing the players with his endless meetings, planning, detail and takes the enjoyment out of footy. Too technical. This parallels with the fact he wanted the rat pack out, the review they did a few years ago plus Rendell’s comments recently and what I’ve heard from a few others.

Bit overbearing apparently.

I recall hearing those sort of things about him when he was playing. Expected everyone else to do everything he could do, and had no time for anyone who didn’t.
Was where the FIGJAM nickname came from.
Seems he hasn’t really mellowed. What happened to his beard?

Will be interesting to see who his Monday hero will be tonight on 360. Will probably be Brad Hill lol

The same was said about him as a player.

Caro seems to have gone missing from Footy Classified. Wouldn't think she has had the flick - has something happened in her personal life?

He fatigues me after 2 minutes of talking.

I reckon Buckley and Scott offer a good lesson on the human aspect of leadership. Dimma the opposite.

All the talk recently has been how Carlton can't bring players through. They argue because Walsh and Weitering have worked that shows they can.

To me No. 1 draft picks aren't a good indication of your development as they should be good in most scenarios.

Their lack of development of other top 25 draft picks has led to them going down the path of recruiting so many players from other clubs leading them to the scenario that you describe.

They are like a crappy version of Melbourne. Both clubs are swamped with top draft picks but neither can really make it work. Melbourne may have turned the corner this year but Carlton are a long way off despite having so many top draft picks.
For every Weitering & Walsh there is a Dow, Stocker, O'Brien etc

Just on Scumwood, Buckley is the scapegoat but the one who should be under the pump is the List management crew. They traded out 3 best 22 players & replaced them with kids who are clearly not ready. Them dropping away isn't the biggest surprise. it's gets more interesting too this off season given they have work to do in order to get that Daicos kid.

No pressure on the kid.... already being referred to as a star and expected to put the club on his back and carry them to instant success! Good luck with that. Hope he doesn't bring his brother's trait of staging for frees!

Good ole dinosaur Mark Manure last night. What a useless, nothing, valueless 70’s doomf that bloke is.

Last week (and weeks before) he had the Blu-tacs as being an absolute mess, “no spirit”, something has to change ...one negative generalisation after another. But this week it was “these kids are good” and “they could make finals” and all these positive uninsightful generalisations.

Bloke is a moron.
