1 BUCKS’ DOUBLE FAULT
Scenario 1: Alicia Molik and her coach have COVID-19 and one of them gives it to Buckley and Sanderson. They pass it on to the players and staff. The Pies are locked down, $250 million worth of remaining football this season is in jeopardy and, most of all, there’s potentially graver fall out.

Scenario 2: They were lucky.

Yes, we all make mistakes. But it beggars belief Buckley and Sanderson would put themselves in this situation. Collingwood and the AFL spun the same message. β€œThis is a very disappointing reminder of how vigilant we must be,’’ the Pies said. The AFL: β€œThis is a reminder that everyone, clubs, players, coaches, officials all need to be extremely diligent.’’ No, it’s not a reminder to be diligent β€” there been plenty of them over the past five months. It was a potentially monumental mistake and both Collingwood and the AFL have downplayed it.

2 WEEKEND AT EDDIE’S
It started off powerfully when McGuire piled on the Queensland hub breakers, of which Trent Cotchin’s wife was the poster girl. Put them on a plane home, he said. Less than 24 hours later, Buckley and Sanderson double faulted. The problem is β€” again β€” Ed sends out all these messages as a media man and can’t back them up as a president. Remember, he whacked the Fremantle players on TV for breaking protocols and then, as president, said he was proud of Steele Sidebottom’s response to his four-week suspension. The tennis debacle is not McGuire’s fault, but he puts himself in the position where he gets whacked because he whacks everyone else. Maybe ease up with the whacking, Ed … and enjoy your weekends.

4 AND, TO CAP IT OFF
Collingwood is 10th after nine rounds of football. The Pies were the favourites for the flag not so long ago, but their reputation has taken a battering these past two weeks. On Sunday night, and to end Collingwood and Eddie’s weekend of disappointment, they were out-hunted by a younger, hungrier and tougher team. The midfield group was poor, other than its third quarter. And, in the final quarter, when the game needed authority of conviction, it was the previously 17th-placed Dockers who took command. The Dockers won the contested ball by 36 overall and won it by 15 in the final term.

He was quick to say Richmond can’t win the flag half way through last year
