Interesting fact on Buckley, believe that no past player or coach, has ever in the history of the VFL/AFL, ever been involved in more games, and not won a flag. I think 2nd on the list is Ross Lyon, oh the irony if Ross is Nathans replacement ,

the real irony will be if Ross replaces and wins a flag

2001 -2003 Matthews
2004 Williams
2005 Roos
2006 Worsfold
2007 Thompson
2008 Clarkson
2009 Thompson
2010 Malthouse
2011 Scott
2012 Longmire
2013 -2015 Clarkson
2016 Beveridge
2017 some bloke
2018 Simpson

Matthews and Malthouse had coached Grand Finals already before doing it at their previous club. In Malthouse's case, he won premierships with his 2nd and 3rd clubs.

That’s one thing, but what annoys me are the lengths our small-pond media will go not to offend this seemingly untouchable man.
None of our local sports media is brave enough to contemplate n contend with the prospect of Eddieeeee chewing on their arses.

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
o_O
Rose won a flag in 1953.

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.
If Eddie ever spoke to Jock it would have been through a oujia board.

I got an email off RFC offering me tickets to Collingwood V Melbourne.

Ive got to admit, I found it a bit offensive.

MND is a horrible affliction, but it doesnt stop me hating Melbourne or Collingwood.

Shocker wasn't it. Some of the worst once in a generation footballers to play the game Reiwoldt, Edwards, Rance, Cotchin Martin and then other stragglers like Deledio, Grimes Astbury, Newman, Foley, Jackson and King. Set up to fail with that lot!
