Some of you guys on here are getting pathetic.

REMEMBER THIS

We have had TWO great years, slightly before we were suppose to.
We have had a small stumbling block and some (ahem) so called members are asking for heads.
Yeah we have lost 3 outta 4 this year, big bluddy deal. Be very grateful you do not have yella and black in ya veins, THEN you would have something to grizzle about.

Good on Balmy for saying what he said, let some of you smart arses go down there and do better.

Our major problem is that no other bastard will trade with us.

Onya Balmy.
I would expect anyone faced with an idiot saying those things to fight back.

Balme:
useless thug as a player
failed coach
now sits in a plum job at Collingwood and regularly abuses our own supporters

Anyone who wants to abuse me and support this passenger, go right ahead.

Thug ... yes

Useless ... no

Failed coach ... yeah, probably. Did nothing at Melbourne. Had some success at Norwood, but was generally thought to have underachieved with a list that included the champions Michael Aish and Gary Macintosh and subsequent Collingwood stars, Tony Francis and Craig Kelly.

"Regularly" abuses Collingwood supporters????

I don't think so. And who could blame him if he does? Collingwood supporters give a lot of people the shits ... even other Collingwood supporters.

Not being part of the inner-sanctum, I'm in no position to judge whether he's a "passenger" or not. As an outsider, I can only really judge him as part of a group that has delivered particular results. These results include two Grand Final appearances. That's not a bad yield, really.

No need to abuse you personally, Ray ... AT THIS STAGE Smile

I wouldn't be surprised if morale is a bit low at the club at present, and it certainly doesn't help when "supporters" start publicly abusing people like Neil Balme. The great spirit of collingwood supporters is talked about by club officials like Eddie as a big part of the spirit and motivation of the club and players. If they keep getting crap like this it's hard not to start feeling like "why bother?" if it 's all for dickheads like this.
Hopefully there are other supporters who call in and show a better spirit.

Well it is true - try and do a better job.

Next trade season, all the wannabe Balmes can sit there and hash it all out and work out what they want. If successful, I'm sure they will end up with a great job at Collingwood.

It's all so easy after all!

PS - Just because people post on certain sites doesn't mean that their views are right or correct or more important than anyone else, so it is useless singling out certain sites. In the end, they only are supporters - we are all the same.

Seriously though, what else is he meant to say?

"Yeah I'm weak, no good at my job, i've done bugger all and well anyone else could do a better job than me..."

By round 22 no-one will be worrying about Neil Balme or Dave Buttifant or Guy McKenna or Mick Malthouse, we will all be worrying about the finals. Over-analysis is a waste of body resources. Light a candle and relax Wink

I'll add (once again) that I trust Ed's business nouse over anyone else who wants to hurl mud. Ed has runs on the board. If Balme wasn't doing the job well, he wouldn't be there.
