It almost was. Tommy Hafey’s wasn’t good enough either. Luck plays a major part at Collingwood.
The guy deserves respect, just because he was appointed by Eddie, doesn’t mean he deserves to be crucified with him. Maybe not the best analogy given it’s Good Friday tomorrow.
we not forget about bucks saying he took a step back that year. I think that was the difference and because they did so well I feel like his his obsession for a premiership took back over. Because we play like we did pre 2018.

So after 10 years, the coach isn’t responsible for continuing to pick so many average players?
Well, there is a selection committee. It isn’t just one person.

The drafting up forward has been horrific for many years and it shows. Backline great, mids solid, forwards our weakest area and failed to be addressed.

Which appears to be the coaches plan. He drove away our best key forward this century. But we won’t be fixing it anytime in the next 7 years.

Then don’t play them. He is responsible for the team that is put out on the field
We have nothing to show for 5 years of 1st round picks, completely burnt them - Treloar x2, Beams, Stevo.

We have a list that needs a refresh again.

Hine should be moved on, Buckley is coaching with what we have at the moment - a player drafted from the VFL where he was a fullback and an American as our key forwards.

Im not saying Buckley doesn’t have a hand in this, I’m saying he’s coaching okay considering the team on the park.

How many goals did Cloke kick for the dogs?

I’m not prepared to say that, however all I will say is that he’s only one vote in a critical decision making process.
He’s also the head of the decision making process

But it was always destined to fail, all recent premiership coaches have learnt under successful coaches at other clubs, yet Buckley hasn’t been outside Collingwood.
