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)
Come on. Let’s be fair here. Buck’s deserves it. After all he did find a cure for cancer didn’t he? No?
Then he must have brought about world peace? No?
I know. He won a flag didn’t he................

One thing I do find amusing and ironic is that their 2 greatest players, according to McGuire and a lot of other were Bob Rose and Figgy. For a club that claims to be so successful and to have won so many flags, those 2 with their playing and coaching records at the club have won exactly 0 premierships

It’s a fine line between pleasure and pain. It really is a brutal industry with 17 losers each year and 1 winner. Imagine being a failure if you weren’t the best performer where you worked.

empathy over.

Only two flags in his lifetime, that might have something to do with this call. Not only did he never speak to Jock McHale, he never saw the Pannams, the Coventrys and the Richards's play.

To put Collingwood's last 60 years in context, they have won ONE Premiership more than St Kilda during that period. No wonder Buckley is their hero.

That’s got me thinking about a trivia question I don’t know the answer to. Has any other clubs 2 best players, that also coached the club, had so little success combined in regards to premierships. Leave out the suns and giants and probably freo as no favourite son has come back to coach them. The saints have baldock, dogs have whitten who were involved in at least one flag. Can name any other player/coach and they will still have 1 more flag than rose/ buckley

Any chance the media might cover this a little more?
I love reading the same *smile* with a different headline.

Oh boy!! Got the HS today and what do you know?
Magpies on front page, back page, 4 inside pages and not to be seen to be biased, but another 3 or 4 pages inside back pages.
There has not been so much hype about an event since world war 2.

It would be amusing to compare how many pages Jim Stynes got in the HS when he died.

Just another thing, Buckley played at Collingwood 1994 to 2007 and coached from 2012-2021.

They won their two flags around him in 1990 and 2010.

Reverse Midas touch?

I can't stand Lollingwood, their supporters, Bucks and especially Mason Cox who single handedly ruined our 5 peat. Only a Tiger era of dominance gives me more pleasure than seeing these guys in turmoil. However, credit where it is due they have handled Buckley's departure better than any other coach sacking in my time following the game. The media are treating him like he is Bambi and the exit was clean.............pay out must have been nice!

or

Of course it could just be he is so happy about shagging a chick way out of his league he doesn't give a crap. The best cure for stress and metal health issues known to man.

Rose played in their 1953 premiership team.

I just read a quote from fat Ed and thought there was something unusual about it.

“I remember years ago being told by Jock McHale that he thought Bob Rose was the greatest [Collingwood] player he saw, and that Bob Rose thought Nathan Buckley was the greatest Collingwood player he saw.”

Hmm. I looked it up and saw that mchale died in 1953. Ed was born in 1963.
Didn’t realize he could communicate with the dead. That or he just makes *smile* up. Not like him to do that is it?

You've read a misquote. He definitely said 'being told Jock McHale thought'.

but he lacks the human touch all great coaches need.

Interested in how you would know that Carter? Inside word or just an impression?
