Adelaide would have likely chalked up their 4th win of the season if it was them.
So true it's not funny n the best thing is that the filth will just have to keep sucking up the mediocrity until Eddie Colonwood is gone n hopefully for years after.
Strut n sing n dance n control a massive slice of the media market all ya like. But when push comes to shove, Colonwood ends up sitting on it's arse way more often than not. Two flags since I got my smelly arse out of nappies ( n I'm getting serious old ) is pretty pathetic for such a noisy big noter club.

Eddie's weakness as a president is his blind loyalty to his team and his way of defending players who break the culture. Staunch diehard supporter and one of the boys first, club president second. He is a master of finding the right media narrative to get his players off the hook in a crisis.
I wonder what spin he would have been able to weave around the great Kebab escapade if they were vital Collingwood players.
You can bet no way would they have copped 10 weeks. Ed would have just had a word to good mate, Gil. Did you notice that they were watching from the same corporate box last night, couple of metres apart?

Sidearse and co. committed a smorgasbord of violations and only copped 4, so could have been available to play finals if they made the GF. And he is leadership team, not a very young AFL player!

Not that any of us fine Tigers care, however if you were unlucky enough to be born a Collingwood supporter would you want Eddie to stay on as President ? I think he did a great job when he took over and got them back to been a powerful club, however his now been in charge for over 20 years with just the one flag , he over saw the “ shove” of a triple Premiership coach out the door, they have made one GF since . Eddie appears to believe he knows more then anyone and I’m sure his ego gets in the way with important club decisions, the other Issue i believe he is very matey matey with the players which cant Help with the discipline or lack there of at Collingwood . I think his only still there due to the fact of his media role and the fact his been able to bring in sponsors .

I’d say Eddies lucky the club don’t have a phantom with a clip board.
Mate, keep this to us on PRE. We WANT Eddie to stay there as long as he feels like it.

Hate them with a passion, but for most of that 60+ years they’ve contested finals, which is why they’ve kept their large supporter base and the high profile.

Treloar's game further proof we dodged a bullet and were just so fortunate that the Pies excel at winning under the table deals.
He's just a scrapper. And if he was pinged for every throw he'd only get 10 disposals a game.

I'd like to nominate the third Q from last nights game as the most boring Q of footy of the decade, and possibly the history of the game.

Nothing happened, 1 pt to 2 pts.

First time Cox has had more disposals than at least 2 team mates. He had 4.

He dead set threw one over his head last night that went 20 metres. Play on!

Boils my *smile* how he gets away with it. So glad he chose Scumwood. He’s a shitcart.

Maybe, but soooo many people got a shitload of pleasure watching them get beat up on in so many finals over the years.

True. But would he be a better player under us? I would say yes.
Not only did he miss out on a couple of premiership, but as a player he hasn’t improved.

Credit where it's due.... went at 100% disposal efficiency. ..!

Tommy Lynch must be spewing he didn't end up coached by Bucks and mentored on forward craft by Cox :rolleyes:

Media would be too scared to touch Lynch in a Collingwood jumper. They have a player going up on rape charges FFS. What would it be like if he was one of ours?

Treloars' nickname should be Kel Knight. You can try and dress the name up any way you want, but at the end of the day, both of them are just
butchers.
