    He's great at what he does. That's the problem. No other AFL club president in history has had even a fraction of the power that Ed has to set the media agenda to whatever suits him (and Collingwood).

    Nobody else has an entire TV network machine and daily primetime radio platform to do their bidding. The retention allowance, COLA, priority picks and Academy bidding are all personal barrows he's pushed hard in the media to benefit the Pies.

    He's gradually lost some influence over the past few years but the Footy Show puts him back in the spotlight.

    We can't stop that. But we can choose whether we help him or not.

    The best thing about Eddie is that is that he has stuffed Collingwood up even more and re-appointed Figjam...happy to see Eddie continue as the highest profile AFL president in the history of the game - he may set agendas via his media profile but generally achieves bugger all. Collingwood have the best of every facility imaginable and underachieve beyond reproach.

    Are you sure? Take another look at those barrows xplo mentioned;
    retention allowance
    COLA
    priority picks
    Academy bidding

    All but gone, or watered down significantly.

    Good points Skoob - fortunately, he and Figjam are still stuffing up Collingwood...

    The great man Mark Zanotti. Streaming out of defence with no idea what he was going to do with the ball and looking like Daniel Day Lewis from The Last Mohicans. Kept Dunstall goalless one day out at Waverley as the Lions went on to have a famous win.

    Pretty much a non-event with Fagan as they mostly talked finals and coaching. Has strong belief in the Tigers' system, which shouldn't surprise anyone.

    Also denied meeting with Hodge today, which apparently was a rumour doing the mill on radio.

    More or less Swann was asked if Rocky left what pick would we get back. He said band 2 or 3.

    I missed most of the Rockliff chatter, but other than that this is my vague summary
    • Cameron wait and see. Ball is in Adelaide's court as CC is a contracted player ect.
    • As far as they know Schache is staying. Will touch base with manager soon. Definitely sounded like the club is open to offers, however...
    • Lock in Hodge - Swan pretty much intimated Fagan has been working on this for a while
    • Confirmed we asked the question of Mason Cox before he re-signed. Also denied Stef was on the move
    • Talked up BOTH Ballenden and Payne as academy players

    Just listening back over the Rockliff part. Swan pretty much said we wouldn't much an offer for Tom despite the fact he's a restricted free agent. Expected pick 19 as compensation

    Yeah I know it went from a 10% chance to 0%. Swann probably knows the rival offers for Tom is under what is required for band 1.

    Is the club open to Tom staying if he accepts the clubs offer?
