Theyre absolutely losing it. Its hilarious
GREATEST ROBBERY IN SPORTING HISTORY SAYS PIE
BY SEN 10 HOURS AGO
Collingwood midfielder Adam Treloar has called Jeremy Howe’s mark of the year snub as one of the great robberies in the history of sport.
“I actually couldn’t believe it and he couldn’t believe it,” Treloar told SEN’s The Run Home.
“It was the biggest robbery in the history of any sport.
“I was sitting next to him and had a video on his face, thinking he was going to win and wanted to record his reaction, and when he didn’t his face just dropped.”
Most were gobsmacked Howe’s hanger did not get the gong, and even more surprised to find out it came down to a public vote. Essendon’s Joe Daniher won mark of the year for his screamer over Saint Jake Carlisle.
“With all due respect to Joe Daniher I actually think Brodie’s (Grundy) mark was better than his,” Treloar said in reference to the Magpie’s ruckman MCG screamer.
But Howe’s snub wasn’t the only surprise for the Pies on Brownlow night, with Treloar polling just 11 votes to finish fourth at the club behind Scott Pendlebury (15), Taylor Adams (14) and Steele Sidebottom (14). Many thought the former Giant was an outside chance to finish top three and certainly win the club award for most votes.
Asked for a tip for Saturday’s Grand Final the Magpie playmaker was in no doubt as to who would hold the premiership cup aloft.
“I think Richmond will be way too strong,” he said
“If they bring the pressure no one can go with them.
“At the MCG they’ll be, very, very hard to beat.
“When they start to get on top they’ll run away with it and I think they’ll win.”
