You can bet gthere will be no mention of the famous bizarre Lumuba matters , including requesting a meeting wth Barack Obama, Heretier the Prince etc. keep the contents of this speech in mind if you watch the program, or read the articles it generates.
Heritier Lumumba thanks Collingwood in cryptic farewell speech
_Daniel Cherny _
Departing Collingwood dasher Heritier Lumumba has praised coach Nathan Buckley in a cryptic farewell speech at the Copeland Trophy count.
"Lumumba, who was called to the stage after finishing fourth in the best and fairest, paid tribute to the Magpies – his home of 10 years.
“I know what side of history I stand on, and I am so grateful that the Collingwood Football Club has allowed me to define my character and find the true meaning of my true name … which is the prince, the one who will hold the last laugh, and is gifted,” Lumumba said.
_Lumumba – a veteran of 199 games – walked out on the Magpies last month, flagging his intent to move across the other side of AAMI Park to Melbourne. Despite having endured a turbulent relationship with Buckley, Lumumba emphasised the way the coach had shaped his career. _
“My first mentor at the club was arguably the greatest player in the club’s history, Nathan Buckley, who guided me every step of the way, taught me what it took to be an AFL footballer, what standards you need to uphold in terms of discipline, relentless, excellence, and side by side,” he said.
"But the thing that I hold closest to my heart are my values, which are also congruent with the values of the Collingwood Football Club, and the No.1 most important value that this football club has is community.
Sometimes negative thoughts fester with the passage of time. Move on Heretier.
