This Collingwood mate is the only Pies supporter I almost feel sorry for. Really nice bloke and great to talk footy with, a real student of the game.


diagnosis on the internet can be problematic,

but I'd suggest your friend is a trans-supporter.

Its surprisingly common and in the last few years, as its become better understood,

many have successfully undergone the transition process to Richmond supporters

Sorry guys.
That's my best GF (in my life time) no other comes close
(73,74,17,19 or 20) .

Beating Collingwood is the happiest days in my life.
I reckon last night was about the 10th time I've watched it zips. It was huge for me too, I had that many mates and work mates that barracked for Collingwood, I was dreading the thought that we might lose.
Gee we had some hard ruthless players. There was none harder than Malthouse, he and Woosha, Bourkey, Smithy (he gave Rene Kink a bath), the General (he flogged Peter Moore), the Ghost, Bazza Rowlings and little Flea (the next best tackler I've seen behind Maurice Rioli), they'd all go straight threw you if you were in the way.

The other thing about that grand final was that the two biggest media people in the game at that time were Jack Dyer and Lou Richards and they sparred all week making it great theatre.
Louie was mouthing off about how they were going to smash us !!!

Eddies' ego is audible in his long range retirement speech


Hows when he says 'I have assured government .......'

what? he waved to Yarra City councillor across Hoddle St. ?

*smile* off Eddie.

If there was a board game called 'opposite people',

you'de get maximum points for laying down the pair of Eddie McGuire and Peggy O'Neal cards

It's on again in 1 hour zips, and I'm going to watch it. I never tire of watching the mighty Tiges flog the Filth. :banana :cupgold :banana
Check out Robbie Wiley's 3 goals, a right footer, he slotted 2 on his left.

I knocked off work at 2pm that day. Couldn't go home and watch on the telly. I was so nervous.

I drove around Melbourne streets listening to it on the car radio.

At half time I went home and enjoyed the second half on the box.

Just watching it again on FoxFooty, 4.5 to 2.6 in the 1st quarter. Not much has changed, the Filths 2 goals have come from free kicks.

When you compare Eddie to Carter’s retirement at Geelong which virtually happened on the same day.

Carter retired immediately, no fan fare, deputy steps in seamlessly and they are off and running as they should.

Eddie announces retirement in 12 months to give him time to build a succession plan and to bask in his glory. The fact he didn’t have a succession plan in the first place shows how incompetent he is at this governance stuff and he has now made next year at Collingwood all about himself.

Enough said.

Well, there you go. Had no idea of Carter's retirement. Also, one minor detail that doesn't get highlighted as much as it should, is that Eddie "intends" stand-down at the end of next year.

Bet Eddie finds a reason to stay. Twelve months is a long time in Football.

I hope the reason is that they fail to win a game in 2021.

Whilst Fat Ed is a conflicted flog that has spent 23 years being a bully in club land at with the AFL he is not completely stupid. He knows the Scum are in for a rebuild at a time when money is scarce and doesn't have the patience or will to see it through - time to exit.

Eddies adopted the Steve Waugh retirement - planned so that for the next 12 months each and every occasion will provide an opportunity for the masses to laud him on his way out

We can pretty much jot down today's date as the day Collingwood finally accepted the fact their Premiership window is well and truly shut.

Good luck with the rebuild. De Goey seems like the sort of senior leader that can help forge the new generation into real Collingwood players.
