Coaching team will reinvigorate this mob. Together with our rebound, will be the good news AFL story next yr.
Absolutely. Collingwood have put together an A grade coaching panel. They have absolutely nailed it. Their stay in the lower reaches of the ladder will be very short lived I reckon.

What does a Director of Coaching do?
Earn good coin doing sweet FA.
Can't get sacked like at Brisbane.
Now Leppich is the saviour at the Lexus centre.
I thought Leppich said he was going away from football to concentrate on land/home management.
That quickly ended after the ph call from Wright

Their Board is functioning well

I honestly thought the debacle at the pies couldn’t get any worse. That is downright champagne comedy. Only photo of her related to footy and she was wearing a doggies jumper. That not really explained as to the Footscray/Collingwood connection? Maybe she was making a statement in support of Adam Treloar and wishing him all the best at the Dogs. Only recently joined as a member and appeared to be rushed onto the board. Possibly as a diversity statement particularly after the recent racism row. Not eligible to vote due to short term nature of membership and now won’t be voting at all. And every week there is another article highlighting the current battle behind the scenes,

Thank god it’s not us. For a change anyway.

She's a Dogs supporter, that's well known. Her mistake was not disguising this fact after joining the Collingwood board. Or at least not rubbing it in their faces.

A doggies supporter that somehow ended up on the Collingwood board. Bizarre.

A doggies supporter that somehow ended up on the Collingwood board. bizarre.

I’ve just read the official statement by Korda:

“It is with regret that the Collingwood board (she didn’t even need to vote on this) has accepted the resignation of ex official director, Dr ‘Brodie O’Donnell. (bit more about the new job) The opportunity and duty before Birdie we understand and yet her departure is Collingwood’s loss. on behalf of the board I thank Bridie for her contribution to our club and wish her every success (‘that’s fair enough comment there re wishing her all the best).

The bit that gets me is the “contribution”. Dr O’Donnel has been there for 4 months…..16 weeks including the period since home and away season ended. Bit hard to see what the contribution would have been? in such a short period of time.

Anyway - it’s not us. Phew.

Therefore……why on earth would you go on the board of Collingwood? To pump up one’s resume perhaps?

Absolutely, power, publicity, influence. Also your input on sport science matters would be valued by boards. It would open other doors for you.

Can anyone in that group still play?
Because they have a very ordinary list
