What’s with the 7 man leadership group @CollingwoodFC? Was it a raffle? How does Steele get another shot after last year’s debacle?

I know its a pre-season warm up game but losing to the Tigers still makes me sick. @CollingwoodFC please make it the last time this year (same goes for Geelong and West Coast….thanks)

    Nicole, as a die-hard Bluebagger, I suppose my response to this should be #schadenfraude.

    But do I risk speaking a week too soon?
