Shafted him so they could land Gubby Allen whom they lost within months due to the Whitfield drug scandal.There is an element of being at the right place at the right time. The planets didn't align for him at other clubs as well as it did with ours. Blake's game plan suited our players perfectly. It required the bulk of the team to have elite endurance and a stack of speed to pull it off. He won't find that combo at Essendon so he'll have to think up something different or a mish mash of what we had. I doubt it will work.
Neil Balme is a bloody legend. How stuffed in the head was Collingwood to shaft him??
