Just fluked it for the last 8 mins of 2018 GF ... on Foxtel again ... but it still puts a smile on the face
That play of McGovern to Vardy to Ryan to Sheed is bliss.
May the Ghost of Dom Sheed live forever.....

No... they were up by 5 goals against a side that struggled to win on the MCG and they still found a way to lose.
Collingwood are hopeless.
In their last 2 premierhips they had to have a Draw then to go on to win them..
Agree. They stuffed it up.

Watched that entire match last night. .... have an unhealthy, bordering on perverse desire, seeing the pies lose again!
I know we're the inclusive club but gee, I'd struggle to barrack for us if we had Cox in the team.
He's virtually a cicus act, and possibly the most smug bloke in the game..... headwobbler!

I enjoyed Greeenwood smothering a shot at goal with his back in the last few minutes...

Bucks, some advice: leave Collingwood now! 4 flags since 1936, history is against you, Collingwood have not been a flag winning side for 80 years.

Happy for Figgy to stay at Colonwood forever. They just somehow deserve one another n all the angst n heart ache they share.

From the dud Adams.
Anyone else wouldve snapped a goal, he kicked it out on the full.

The worse part of that Grand final was he allowed the runner to take the heat for his fkup when he shanked a kick to Mr TAB.

I liked it how all year hearing how Collingwood went close to winning the flag, pity the gutless cowards didn't have the balls to say they choked again..

When you have Adams and Treloar as your main midfield engine, you know your flked.
They might get it but they always find ways to give it straight bsck...

Let's do our best to help Bucks continue on to immortality:)

I looked up Wikipedia out of curiosity. Lyon has been involved in 434 games as a player/ coach without a flag. Figgy is on 464. Clubhouse leader by a mile isn't he? Hopefully he gets the double in both games and years. He would be an immortal then

I can't believe a player can walk from a contract when the front-loaded bit has been completed. The whole contract price should be divided by the number of years, and if you leave after the front-loaded potion, you have to pay the difference.
That's the player's advantage for doing a deal that helps the club, the club takes the risk to get the salary cap manipulation they need.

That's cos he's a Seppo and most of their sportsman are like that.

Look at the NFL blokes and their carry on.

Buckley giving the PM some advice on Twitter


“Leadership is hard. Put your hand up and accept what could have been done better, by you and by others,” Buckley tweeted.

“Then accept the vitriol, the hurt and the pain. Listen, understand and empathise. Then take action. Firstly for today and then for tomorrow.”

Hopefully Figgy can continue to practice what he preaches by continuing to fail his masses thus unleashing the hurt and pain and they unleash the inevitable vitriol back at him and Edwardo the Red Face......................... He of Many Chins.

What is buckley saying that LoCo should embrace failure and finish 2nd?

Great advice, although i dont reckon LoCo will have much say in it.

Gil McLachan is in shock
Eddie shook his head in disbelief.
They both agreed unless the carpet burns there's room to sweep some ashes.
But I'm in full agreement with what Buckley tweeted, but he forgets they're politicians he's offering advice to.
What happened to the 2009 fire aftermath Commission ? Was it for the public? How many of the findings were taken onboard and auctioned?

Serious flog be Figgy. Obviously doesn't have much to keep himself amused over summer. Not busy winning a flag for Colonwood at the moment so he's decided to help ScoMo run the country part time.
