Every other team has one....
2010 - Wooden Spooners (see my avatar), 4 wins for the entire season.
2011 - 6 wins from 10 games already and they actually look like a cohesive unit.
Granted they are not near the comp leaders at the moment (proved a couple of weeks ago) but they are certainly not push overs, if Collingwood played that way against any other team in the comp they'd win every game by 80 points.
Watching them today against the Crows I thought 'ohh here we go' during the first quarter...then the second quarter came about and NicNat continued to dominate, Kerr is looking in almost career-best form (assuming we didn't see another season-ending injury), Cox looks like a kid again (I'd say having NicNat there is really giving him his second win)...LeCras is a stunning player.
We have a solid, tall forward line. Glass is playing wonderfully and is really leading a top defensive unit, in fact I'd say one of the best defensive units in the competition.
Last year I cringed every time I watched them. This year they are very solid (still have only put together 4 solid quarters once, seems to be a WCE thing...we used to be slow starters and now we are slow finishers. The NicNat tap to LeCras and then resulting goal from Cox was probably the best tap-out goal all year...so they show they have some real talent.
If we can keep a full roster we are only going to get stronger as the year goes on.
Really looking forward to the next couple of years.
Go Weagles :)
