    Seriously though, Collingwood Football Club - has lost 25 Grand Finals in 110 years of AFL history, I'm not just doing this to wind up Matt, although that's the main reason itbt, but they're not called the Collywobbles without good reason.

    Indeed.
    The one, the only CW Black

    47.3 W Coppinger to Heads 
        Smacked the ball straight into the groin of Iwuajoku who has fallen over, 
        miraculously with the ball still caught in his scrotal area! Out!

    Yes of course....it couldn't possibly have anything to do with the fact that Englands' players weren't good enough now could it ?

    do one Salamuddin, we wouldn't have won the WC in 94, but we certainly should have qualified.

    And I'm going for the All-Blacks here because they've been so dominant between WCs but have failed when it's come to the crunch.

    If we're talking domestic chokes, the whites in 94-95 takes some beating. Went top with five games to go, needing 9pts to win the league and gain promotion. Our sequence of results went as follows:

    0-5
    1-5
    0-2
    1-1
    1-1

    Going into the last game, we actually needed a point to confirm our play-off spot. Dire.

    Parra still choked that year. Looked nearly unbeatable all year and got accounted for in the final.

    All of my memories of footy as a kid are sitting in the beautiful North Sydney Oval (best ground in Australia) watching Flo tear them up, JT slotting them from everywhere, and Matt Sears dropping the easiest of bombs!

    As sportspeople go, Matt Orford has to be included.
    Beware the lollipop of mediocrity. Lick once and you suck forever...
