Was a very good player (top 15 or thereabouts) for a very long time, it's a shame his 177 game career (probably should have been more tbh) has drawn to a close.


Let's try and make this thread as positive and civil as possible, his well known off field issues have well-documented elsewhere, let's just recognize how good his on field and playing efforts were.

Premiership player and B and F winner (amongst others) is a very impressive resume.

Hope you find peace and happiness in retirement Dayne Beams👍👍👍

If you didn’t know anything about him, his circumstances, the trades etc you’d look at that career and say that’s pretty impressive. Made AA, won a prem, two B+F

didnt maximise his potential for a variety of reasons but achieved more than the vast majority
Problem is he has done a Jason Akermanis and is now pretty much not well liked by either club he played for.

Yeah maybe but there is more to life than being liked. I don’t know the man and wouldn’t have a clue if he is a total campaigner or great bloke but he did help deliver Collingwoods only premiership in the last 30 years and in the grand scheme of things that matters more

fu** off and get down off the high horse. I’m saying he was there to play football and he delivered. I’m saying life isn’t a popularity contest. I also said maybe he was a campaigner and will be judged by those that actually knew him not morons on a forum

Collingwood really messed up after the 2018 Grand Final.

The Beams deal and now losing Treloar after signing him to a Hail Mary contract were horrible pieces of list management that are going to impact the club for a long period of time.
So losing one player who got loads of possession but butchered the ball massively and losing another player who hasn't played we are doooooomed. I think we can safely say we will finish above Carlton again

What a horrible deal this was for Collingwood. Whoever ticked off this trade should have been sacked.

I doubt it. This is culture killing stuff, and losing out of your best players is never ideal. No quality key forwards either.

I’m expecting a slide out of the 8 next season.

You can win a premiership and not be a campaigner, they’re not mutually exclusive.
