McGuire can't even jump off a sinking ship with any integrity.

At least Chris Scott just jumped.

McGuire is gonna shuffle his feet, poke around the listing hull, trying to shore up his own place in history,

drawing half-arsed salutes from the crew.

Sorry Ed. To anyone who isnt Collingwood, and many who are,

you'll be consigned to the John Elliot bin of history.

with all the other fat-headed, racist, brash, entitled, narcissist old boys,

who put themselves before the game

Love him or hate him (and I realise most people are in the latter camp), there's no denying he has been a great President. In footy terms he would be a straight up legend in the Hall of Fame.

There is a category for Adminstratirs but none inducted so far have only been Club Presidents. All have been execs in state or national leagues. Might get in as media? But as for Legend he couldn't get Lou over the line.

I dunno, bit of a double edged sword I reckon. Excellent self promoter and that has certainly helped the profile of Collingwood, but has opened his mouth only to embarrass the club a few times too often. Clearly has influence which helps Collingwood, but that too can rebound.

I don't really love or hate him, although I do hate some of the things he has said.

McGuire and the Filth have taken a leaf out of Scott Morrison's play book, have an enquiry and then keep the findings a secret.



"Heritier Lumumba has called on Collingwood to release a report into his allegations of a racist culture at the famous club.

The 2010 premiership Magpie took to social media on Wednesday night to claim Collingwood had been delivered “an internal review on racism and racial discrimination” and yet had made “no mention of it publicly”.

“As usual, CFC have tried to spin this to avoid associating Eddie’s departure with the findings of the review,” Lumumba posted on Twitter.

“No doubt their intention is to bury the report in ‘new initiatives’ around ‘equality’ as mentioned by McGuire in his speech.”

News Corp approached Collingwood for comment on Wednesday night.

Eddie McGuire made a shock announcement early last week during a Collingwood members forum that he would step down as president at the end of 2021.

McGuire said leading the fight against racism and developing facilities at the Holden Centre and Victoria Park were among his priorities next year.

“I have much to do before I hand on the baton, together with my board and executive we are set to announce significant landmark initiatives in the area of equality, the fight against racism to ensure Collingwood is a safe and welcoming environment for all people, and more on that in due course,” he said.

Lumumba said the Magpies had not provided him with the report and said they “ignored a request for it”.

“If they truly believe in transparency, CFC should make the report public,” he said.

“Instead, they’re doing their best to hide it behind McGuire’s ‘lap of honour’ exit from the club’s presidency.

“CFC’s damage control tactics are predictable. They likely include a strategically crafted apology that will attempt to spin its way out of real accountability.

“CFC has constantly avoided acknowledging their toxicity and institutional failures, or how they punished me for speaking out and used their power as an institution to publicly discredit me.”

Collingwood announced in July that a review into Lumumba’s allegations of a racist culture would be led by a professor of law who chaired the federal government’s 2011 review into Indigenous higher education.

The Pies said at the time that Distinguished Professor Larissa Behrendt AO, a Eualeyai/Kamillaroi woman and Director of Research at the Jumbunna Institute of Indigenous Education and Research at the University of Technology, Sydney, would “revisit the time in which Heritier played at Collingwood”, and get to the bottom of his experiences and the “organisational culture of the club in the day”.

Is that the review he wouldn’t take part in...?

yes - he didn’t trust their process and I think he was right in doing that - he has called out the CFC based on some subtle comments made by Eddie and I am glad he needs to keep the bastards honest

Eddie is the one person I don’t trust in the race space as he just doesn’t get it.

You can be sure that Eddie will ensure the Board he leaves behind will be pro-Eddie, and that he will leave the door open to be reinstated five years later once his lucrative media deals fizzle out and he tries to stay relevant. It has Jeff Kennett written all over it.

Think the word is he'll be parachuted into some safe federal Labour seat as soon as he tells them he's all in. Once he gets there I can't imagine he'll be a dutiful backbencher.
If you think about it he's basically a politician now, doing backroom deals, negotiating factions and putting his foot in his mouth!
