History will judge him more kindly than it should because the bulk of the media consider him a good bloke.

Disagree, history is bigger than the media and Bucks never got his flag.

I think history will be less kind than the ridiculous massaging of his immense ego this week.

Selfless? Club first? Gimme a spell. Nathan Buckley might be a consummate media performer, be exceptionally driven and harbor a deep understanding of our game, but he lacks the human touch all great coaches need.

That’s one thing, but what annoys me are the lengths our small-pond media will go not to offend this seemingly untouchable man.

Neale Daniher never coached a flag but was a better coach. Ross Lyon never coached a flag but was a better coach. The list goes on.

No one eulogised for them as much as the industry wants to for Nathan Buckley.

Thank *smile* for cold, heartless history. That was the mark Buckley wanted to leave and he failed. So what. *smile* happens.

Apparently this just the beginning. I talked to my clairvoyant and she says there is some good news and bad news for Collingwood. She says that Buckley has resigned so he can lead a takeover of the board at the AGM. He will win, then appoint Eddie McGuire as coach. Collingwood will finish near the bottom of the ladder for most of the 10 years McGuire coaches. Buckley will be even less successful as president and Collingwood will be force to merge with Port Adelaide. The good news is the arguement over the prison bar jumper will be resolved. The bad news is my clairvoyant is an optomist.

Cant see the scum appointing a rookie coach that's not a Collingwood person, It's not their style.

So I would say, it's between:

- Clarkson
- Leppa
- Voss
- B Scott
- Roos
- Worsfold

Whilst I do wish Bucks all the best for the future. .... it's a tad over the top that he's somehow become a coaching icon since effectively being sacked.
Surprised to see the Herald Sun only devote 18 pages to yesterday's events.

Expecting them to really get to work before the weekend to produce a nice full colour, 60 page, exclusive souvenir magazine . .... (Yours for only $4.95 with token)

If the Pies had any brains, and the Blues for that matter they would be headhunting Craig McRae. Fly has an impeccable playing and coaching CV, they could do a lot worse.

good call tMan.

6 flags and an apparent lack of ego is a decent CV.

- Clarkson : old has been - yabby jeans
- Leppa : failed senior coach
- Voss: failed senior coach
- B Scott: failed senior coach
- Roos: old has been
- Worsfold; old has been

10 years in the making.
This bullshiit succession plan was always going to be a disaster.
Apparently in 2010 Malthouse had coached the youngest premiership team ever. 4 years later under Buckley that team was out of the finals. Then having quality footballers asking to leave
Thomas, Beams, Wellingham, Dawes etc.
This is no different to what Graeme Richmond did in 1981,
Got rid of a premiership coach to replace him with a club legend.
With players like Cloke Raines Wood all departing a year later.
These decisions haunt football clubs for years.
It took us 37 of the shittest years to finally recover.
How close is Collingwood to winning a flag?

Its unbelievable.
450+ games No flags as a player and none as a coach.
Not sure they are giving him a state reception farewell.

If Collingwood get Clarkson.
It will match our efforts with Jeans in 1992.
No impact.
There best bet would be a Lyon (but still too defensive, just ask a Stkilda supporter)
I would rather chase Carcella or Yze,
