    Eddie should worry about himself.

    God the stress of him watching the Brownlow the other year nearly killed him. :D

    It's okay, Ed....honestly, you can admit it....

    Just take a deep breath and say after me...

    Eddie is more worried about the huge amount of egg he will have on his face if Malthouse wins a Premiership with the Blues before Buckley! The only reason Buckley is coach of Collingwood is because Eddie could not bare the thought of Buckley coaching somewhere else (and he would've) and then being lost to Collingwood for the next 10 years or forever! No other reason, it's a fact. I also think that Nathan Buckley has done a great job with Collingwood considering he has a few sooks playing in the team plus a couple of weirdos. Buckley is a career coach and if it all goes pear shaped at the Pies maybe he could take over from the Golden Boy down the track?

    No. Why would I be embarrassed about that and in what way is it relevant to this discussion?

    This is fun.

    I don't think it would have taken Ed five lonely seconds to answer if he was quizzed about whether they'd have signed the handover if it wasn't for North chasing Buckley. Never at a loss for a firm view that he finds perfectly credible.

    Pretty clearly a veiled threat. Eddie is the Don Corleone of the AFL.

    So Eddie was concerned about Mick's health and thought that coaching Collingwood could kill him? Well obviously the most compassionate thing to do is sign him up to another contract to be head coach for 2 more years.

    Good old Ed, always putting everyone else's interests first. :rolleyes:

    I watch Eddie as often as possible. One day his head will explode during a live TV broadcast. That will be magnificently entertaining.

    Eddie kills so much birds with one stone:

    1. Protects his position (Buckley transition deal)
    2. Instills doubt in Carlton about their choice for Malthouse as coach

    This man appears to be quite smart and calculated.

    Simple.. FEAR..

    His earlier in the year comments about Malthouse being a perfect fit was when the Blues were at their lowest and our list looked shot and Collingwood was riding high on a big winning streak and starting to look like premiership favourites.... all of a sudden we unearth some good young kids and get our mojo back and look to at least return to finals next year (2013)... whilst Collingwood although top 4/5 doesn't look to be able to win it this year.

    I also think that perhaps he's starting to believe the "If Malthouse goes to Carlton, Cloke will follow rumours as will some other Collingwood people"... so this is Eddie trying to stop Malthouse coming for I think he has suspicions of a few who will leave the pies and come to the arch enemy if Malthouse to Carlton eventuates....

    Also as others pointed out... if Malthouse snares a flag at the Blues before Bucks does at Collingwood... boy would it be splattered all over the fan...

    Unusual comment considering your club just suffered its most embarrassing loss in 100 years and sacked its coach, and missed the finals afater expecting a top 4 finish. Carlton supporters arrogance knows no bounds

    So Bell, McInnes, Casboult, Watson are 4 players who are a handful of players that got a run and have showed good promise is not worth mentioning? And so we had a bad loss, it happens but we still in the last couple of months we knocked off Collingwood (ended their winning streak), beat a much improved richmond, slaughtered Essendon, beat a Bulldogs outfit playing our worst team ever (including our wooden spoon years).. so we lost to GC.. Richmond have never defeated them and would you say Richmond aren't improving. Hiccups happen (North is a great example as well).. so we move on... we've identified it's time for a new voice as coach and dismissed Ratten (he was with us for over 5 years which is a great run in the coaching caper)...

    As a Crows supporter I would think your mob would be a good example of what a new coach can bring to a club... Craig was respected and had great rapport with the list (like Ratten) but a time comes when change is needed... and look at the Crows now.

    Ironically Eddie couldn't handle the stress of working for Channel Nine as CEO nor did he know what was the best direction for the business. Typical megalomanic with delusions of grandeur is our Eddie.

    He was shown up by the big boys for the little media puppet he is.

    Yeah. Normally Eddie's doing nothing more that trolling, but this one's a pretty lame effort considering he'd be expected to have info regarding Malthouse's health history.

    If the stress of coaching isn't going to kill you, you aren't coaching hard enough!

    What a load of bollocks.

    I'd stop giving Mick incentive to grind Collingwood into the ground if I were you Eddie.

    Eddie is doing what Eddie does best...defending his patch. What is his patch? Sometimes Collingwood. Sometimes himself. In this case, I think he's obviously defending both:

    - obvious to me he's more than a little concerned with Malthouse heading to Carlton that they will more than likely improve (history shows Malthouse teams always improve)
    - sh1tting himself that Malthouse and Carlton will overtake the Pies led by Buckley and hence embarrass poor ole Ed.

    I have always considered the bloke a tosser but respected the work he did for the Pies. This simply confirms my view! Fair dinkum. STFU about non Collingwood matters!!!
