All this talk of the big NicNat v Grundy clash. Every time it’s mentioned they should be forced to acknowledge that it’s Max No.1 .... daylight .... then those two. NicNat has taken 5 marks for the season so far. Gawny averages 6 a game! Plus 8 more touches a game. Plus a goal a game (NicNat zero goals so far). It’s not even a discussion anymore.
People only say that Nic Nat Is the best because in a 1v1, he'll win more hitouts. I'm taking the 2-3 goals a game Max saves over the 1-2 Nicnat creates. Plus Gawn does stuff around the ground and isn't fat, people call Nicnat an "impact player" who plays 60% of gametime to disguise how unfit he is. Meanwhile, Gawn plays 90% of the game and runs his opponent off their feet.

Without the other factors of value across the ground, TOG etc Nic Nat is the best ruck in the game though. The impact he has is incredible.

Otherwise I agree though, Max brings athletic capacity all across the ground plus being an excellent mark

We do kind of need to update that with something. Crimson stuck that there years back as a stopgap while I put something together which I haven’t yet. Thing is, I’ve gotten quite attached to CA’s rules
I was wondering why posters were randomly liking my post from 2 years ago, now I know.

I don't get how basically for the entirety of Buckley's tenure their injury list has been abyssmal. They always seem to have 6-8 key players out of the side. Surely it can't just be luck, but how can the richest and most powerful club in the country have such a shithouse fitness program for that long?

Moore has never been a forward. He wasn't any good there at the start of his career no matter how much Collingwood fans want to pretend he was. Its absolutely ridiculous he was left there after Howe went down, and its mind blowing he's still there now after being a complete non-entity for 90% of the game.

It's funny to me that Howe went to Collingwood to be a forward, got thrown back the first chance they got, then when they need to swing a player forward they select their other failed forward come defender over him. Get rekt Howe, Buckley lied to you.

Or Howe was full of sh*t and used the playing forward as an excuse to leave .

Didn't watch it all but no Nic Nat on the ground at the end? Safe to assume Grundy schooled him and whoever on here was correct that he is an "impact" player.

Nah, they played him as a forward for his first month or so and he did nothing, which forced them to put him in the backline where he carried on like a spoiled kid for us the year before.
