In the changerooms. With a live grenade.

Others will have deeper thoughts about this, but my initial reaction is that I'll never forgive him for letting Collingwood lose the 2018 Grand Final to West Coast.

Just for the irony I’d love to see him take up a role at Brisbane.

Just for the irony, I'd like to see Malthouse return to Collingwood.

Just for the Irony - I'd like to see Ross The Loss take over and improve on the club culture!

Some people have it a lot worse than him, and Buckley seems like a pretty level-headed guy, but in the space of a year he's now had to deal with COVID hubs, a divorce, intense media scrutiny and now leaving a footy club he's been at for nearly two decades.

I hope he uses the break wisely.

EDIT: Surely he's odds on to take a media role before the finals. If a major network was willing to pay Ross Lyon for his coaching insights, and he never won a flag with small to middling clubs, imagine how much they'd be prepared to pay Nathan Buckley, who never a flag with Collingwood?

As a player I thought Nathan Buckley was extremely talented and had the nous to couple it with hard work but I equally held a dimmed view that, through the general Collingwood effect, he was treated by many - media, umpires, Eddy, mostly Eddy - as though the sun shone out of his backside.

Since he became coach, I have developed a respect for the guy. Maybe this says more about me and my jaded sense of how the world is and being too quick to judge entitlement, but I thought whereas he could have turned into Chris Scott II, he in fact continually put the good of the players and the game over territorial and personal ambition.

Much of his life has suffered for the team he lead, yet there is still class and humility there. Irony is not the right word, but there'd be some synchronicity if he were to be come Justin Longmuir's assistant at some stage. We have had and could have much worse.

Robbo struggling with Zoom shouldn't be so funny, but it really is.

Robbo struggling will always be funny, Morgan.

My favourite part is that he really didn’t have to speak. He could have just seen the digital writing on the wall and not said anything. Instead he just kept inserting himself into the conversation only to make an arse of himself.

As someone who spends time posting on Dockerland, I have more empathy with that situation than any person reasonably should.

If they put Chocko in now they'll have a flag within 18 months.
