Agreed. Playing well but also seems a really positive guy. Wish we'd got hold of him earlier.
Not sure about earlier, only because I think the stars have aligned with his move to the Swans. Young enthusiastic group, genuine chance to be number one ruck, combination of all his experience at his three most recent clubs coming together on the field. Plus happy with life as the club has embraced him.

Add Dean Cox to that and we have a perfect storm!

I think we got him at the right time for all parties!

"If you're a midfielder you get 2 years to prove you can play but if you're a ruckman you get seven or eight to prove you can't" LOL
That was very funny. The kids looked like they did not know what was going on or how to react early. At the end of the session they were right into it. He worked well with the kids. He seems a humble class act.

“All of my mates play rugby, and I went to a big rugby union school,” he said. “Not many of my mates around me were playing much footy, but I think that’s where the Swans academy was really helpful for my development. "
:thumbsu:
Mentioned often by the academy players, but it doesn't make it any less relevant or important.

Seems to me that Eddie wants to return as president of Collingwood. He is now framing the narrative that:
1. He made one poor mistake - the press conference;
2. He was forced out because of it.

Collingwood are in the poo at the moment: Buckley will be gone soon, and the salary cap disaster will haunt them. They will be out of finals for years.
Then Eddie plans to step in, after all, it was just one bad press conference, right?

Buckley's 'defence' of JDG that he was concussed was straight out of the McGuire and CFC handbook. Personally he could have evinced surprise that JDG was smart enough to know how to use a phone.
