Jeremy Howe has been brutally snubbed again, after high-flying forward Joe Daniher collected the Crichton Medal ahead of the ex-Melbourne defender, sparking outrage yet again from the Collingwood faithful.
Collingwood President and prominent media figure Eddie McGuire threw his support behind Howe, arguing the snub was the latest in a long line of AFL-led conspiracies to bring down Collingwood.
“First we had the cost of living allowance and academies, then they gave Melbourne and Richmond an Anzac Eve game,” he told listeners on Triple M this morning. “Now this! The AFL hates Collingwood, and it has to stop.”
Magpies supporters appeared to agree with their fearless leader, with many directing abuse at Daniher on social media.
“Your [sic] a disgrace John [sic] Daniher!!!!!!” one said, in a post liked and shared by hundreds of members of the ‘Black and White till we die’ Facebook group. Daniher declined to comment on the story.
