I don't rate Treloar that highly.
Now that he's gone to the Bulldogs under the circumstances in which he did, I do really hope he has a standout season with the Doggies and really sticks it up Collingwood.
Collingwood is becoming a joke of a club.

Treloar was the one that asked to back end his contract because he had issues with his previous girlfriend.
You're going well here zippers. I see even the Hun have given this rumour a run this morning.

Poor old Colonwood are probably praying for the 2021 season to start already. They've been front n centre of nearly all the off season media so far n none of it has been much good.
Galbally gets the steel toed Aquila bovvers on to deliver Eddeeeee a bit of an old fashioned toe poke, which of course forces Eddeeeee onto the front foot in self defence.

They are coming for Eddie, which is always fun to watch... doubly so when he’s backed into a corner. He can generally land a good media haymaker when he’s swinging

Another Christmas gift from the footy gods.
People shouldn't get too carried away on this. Sure, Beams enticement back from Brisbane deal is a disaster for Pies (and all the rest).

But we have just kept paying Rance for a year for not one game, following on a prior year out for injury.

Major thing for clubs' recruitment teams is to do a rigorous Due Diligence on any prospects from other clubs. Because now I will remind you of a name to haunt us - Chris Yarran.
Sure, nothing on the same scale as Beams and co. But I still cannot believe we were suckered by the Blooze when my old Cartoon member mate told me that he had been busted for substance abuse issues and was having his car searched for traces regularly. That's along with the gambling problems. It was common knowledge around that club.

No club is far away from disasters these days unless the DD is spot on.

Im a complete ruckophile and a nicnat fan,

but I agree Ttim.

your ruckman are Landcruisers on the list, amongst McLarens, Rav4's, Teslas and Falcons.

and I suspect Grundy's gears are all ground out and his injector pump is clogged with congealed *smile*.

RFC taking Nick Vlastuin ahead of Grundy (I was outraged at the time), is yet another sliding door moment that has gone our way.

A Prayer: May the footy gods smile upon us for another 33 years
I think I’ve allready said this, love Nic Nat the bloke and think his great for the game , even though his the most overatted player I remember and I think that is highlighted by the flag they won , they didn’t need him , the other 10 years his played no flags and most experts rate their list very highly . Take Nank everyday of the week , best value for money recruit in my time

Mick Warner and McGuire have history, so as much as I like listening to Mick and the fact he's not afraid of belting the AFL and in this instance, Eddie, think he's doing a bit of squaring up!

I just tell all Collingwood supporters that this is John Elliott mark 2. Also say I’m happy with this when he is defended as it keeps Buckley as coach. Most Collingwood supporters have turned on Buckley.

The Tribe were signing a petition?
How many members do they need to cause a general election?
Or has Eddie boobie trapped that to??

Collingwood supporter's are spewing they're over the cap.
They have lost a high end recruit and a Norwich Rising star basically for nothing.
But there's more. 5 drafts in a row, Collingwood have given away their first round selection's away.
Take away the F/S & Acemdey selections, what kids has Hine drafted that look any good?
Has anyone got a list of the 4 kids Collingwood missed out on when they gave away 2 for Treloar and the 2 for Beams???

Yeah, I think paying ruckmen $1m is pure folly. Your bog standard ruck gets the job done 95% as that of the “star” ruck.

I feel Ive been “woke” to NicNat recently. Flashy but he averages 5 kicks and 7 handballs a game. And half a goal a game. 1 contested Mark a game.

And he earns $1m a year! Wtf.

Nank averages 7 kicks and 7 handballs. .3 of a goal. .82 contested Mark a game.

Give me Nank anytime over Nicnat and not just because he’s half the price.
I don’t disagree about over rating rucks but Nic Nat is just about the best tap ruckman I have seen

Enjoying all this.

On the one hand footy is a cruel mistress. If Sheed misses the shot in the 2018 GF and the Pies win then this whole thing would be interpreted much more kindly.

On the other hand: (a) its Collingwood, therefore derision and schaudenfreude is always on and apt; (b) they get shown up for inauthenticity time and again.

Got a feeling all supporters turn on their coach when they aren't winning flags on a regular basis. I'm particularly loving the Colonwood n Geelol supporters at the moment, they don't take very kindly to being prodded n poked lately.

I take no pleasure in the misfortune of other clubs...was not that long ago when we were wallowing in that same dark place.
It's all swings n roundabouts, the joy of being a footy fan. Happily dished it out when we were kings in the 60's n 70's. Wore it back n learnt to survive the *smile* when we were crap for near forty years. Happily dishing it back out again now that the crown is back where it belongs, can guarantee crap'll be coming back again if we stumble.
