    GREATEST ROBBERY IN SPORTING HISTORY SAYS PIE

    Collingwood midfielder Adam Treloar has called Jeremy Howe’s mark of the year snub as one of the great robberies in the history of sport.

    “I actually couldn’t believe it and he couldn’t believe it,” Treloar told SEN’s The Run Home.

    “It was the biggest robbery in the history of any sport.

    “I was sitting next to him and had a video on his face, thinking he was going to win and wanted to record his reaction, and when he didn’t his face just dropped.”

    Most were gobsmacked Howe’s hanger did not get the gong, and even more surprised to find out it came down to a public vote. Essendon’s Joe Daniher won mark of the year for his screamer over Saint Jake Carlisle.

    “With all due respect to Joe Daniher I actually think Brodie’s (Grundy) mark was better than his,” Treloar said in reference to the Magpie’s ruckman MCG screamer.

    No mayo at all from Adam and his big coiffure there.

    I'd love to see Treloar's video.
    New angle, close up, would be great!

    Collingwood should probably worry more about nailing another shithouse kicking shank merchant midfielder in the upcoming draft and trade period. They're good at that.

    What are they complaining about exactly? That they didn't bother to vote enough is entirely the fault of the Collingwood football club and supporter base.

    Despite the protestations of some, the GOY and MOY are important awards, if you look at the history of the sport - These are moments that will be replayed countless times for years to come - To have these awards voted on 'Logie' style are unacceptable.

    In my opinion who votes on the award has no importance.

    The Brownlow results throw up plenty of controversial decisions.

    Have limited access at the minute and sure it's been mentioned, but the universe has righted itself with a mark taken over Carlisle beating a Collingwood mark

    2011 was a bigger MOTY farce

    So many calls on FB pages for it to be made a public vote due to incompetent judges haha.

    I don't know which meltdown has been better over a completely inconsequential award - McGrath's rising star or Danihers MOTY?

    Guess it goes to show how desperate Collingwood and Hawks are to have any type of recognition after lackluster seasons

    It was a good mark. It has been turned into a ******* brilliant best of all time grab, due to the crying, blubbing carry on.

    If Daniher fell on his face it's mark of the century.

    Ha! AFL thinking of taking the voting for Mark of The Year out of the fans hands.

    It's all Essendons fault haha.

    Grundy's mark was the best. Going back with the flight, there's a genuine pack, perches right on top of Charlie Dixon, takes it cleanly overhead. Super difficult grab. Weird that everyone's going on about Howe getting robbed and not Grundy, reckon reputation plays a role. It's not like Howe's mark is one of the all time greats or anything.

    Maybe we could have an award for best chest mark and name it after Howe?

    I'm almost enjoying this implosion more than the Hawthorn RS melts.

    The confident smile wiped away from Howe's face, Eddie and Treloar's public melts, Collingwood supporters struggling with simple measurements when assessing the height of the mark etc

    Daniher needs to take one on Howe's head next year.

    Don't know why people are whinging Howe takes those type of marks nearly every week. also Daniher was stiff not to win it last year and Walla's goal is better then Daniel Rioli's.
