Collingwood couldn’t have put in a worse performance when eliminated from the final as he only scored a three-quarter goal against Geelong on Saturday night.
But if the season ended dramatically on the field, it could get even more dramatic as there is still much to do in the coming weeks.
With the rise in commerce and the free agency, Collingwood has a number of stars that rivals may be interested in given a tight salary cap.

Jordan De Goey, Darcy Moore, Brody Mihocek, and Josh Daicos are among the pies in the top 22 no deals, which means list manager Ned Guy cut his job out.
Add in the looming wage pressures after the coronavirus crisis, and there’s a lot to do on the club’s future list.

THE DE GOEY QUESTION
Magpies coach Nathan Buckley discussed at length De Goey’s contract situation during his post-game press conference and explained how far the club and his manager were from finding common ground for a new deal.
De Goey is currently co-managed by father Roger Foxfooty.com.au In August, he reported that the pies gun had told the club that it wanted to stay.
However, as of October 12, a contract has yet to be signed.
The financial numbers for De Goey remain open, with a number of AFL giants asking if a nearly $ 1 million per season contract for a player who is not yet in the top 5 of the club’s best and fairest players, has expired.
During his 98-game career, De Goey has scored 132 goals and collected 21 Brownlow votes.
He had his best time in his outstanding 2018 season, in which he scored 48 goals from 21 games and averaged 16.1 departures. In the same season, De Goey had six games with four or more goals.
In 2020, however, De Goey only managed 14 goals from 10 games, nine of which were scored in two performances – meaning he averaged less than one goal per game in the other eight games.
“You speak of a number in excess of $ 5 million over five years. What are you getting now Would you pay that kind of money for someone who has never won the best and most beautiful? “Essendon great Tim Watson asked further SEN breakfast on Monday.
“I love him, I think he’s a game changer. He’s doing things out there that few players can do – but does he do that often enough? There have been question marks in his behavior off the field, there is a possible court case hanging over his head.
“Do you think the value is there for a $ 1 million player?”
Former Melbourne captain Garry Lyon offered De Goey seven-digit numbers for the future but suggested that given his X-factor, he had a high value.
“Not a million dollars … I wouldn’t pay a million dollars for him, no. Someone will pay $ 800,000, ”Lyon said.
“When he came back (after the finger injury), he turned a game upside down himself.
“Not many players can do that.”

If De Goey is to move elsewhere, it can simply be a matter of who can make him the biggest offer based on Nathan Buckley’s comments last Saturday night.
Carlton and Essendon are linked to the 24-year-old while the Magpies striker turned down a $ 5 million deal from North Melbourne a few years ago.
The Blues would have to act for De Goey as they would for Essendon’s Adam Saad, with GWS weapon Zac Williams ready to join as a free agent.
Carlton would surely have to submit his first round pick (# 7) and would likely have to include 2021 picks, possibly a first round pick that would likely fall in the 11-20 range if the club played the final. The club also has options 27 and 45 in the 2020 draft.
However, IT IS On Monday afternoon it was reported that the Blues’ interest in De Goey was overrated.
Cornes gets the last laugh!
The bombers would have the pick that goes with the pies as they currently hold pick 6 and likely received two picks for the first round in Adam Saad and Joe Daniher’s deals (the latter either in a trade or as compensation for a free agency) .
Lyon think it might be worth playing a game of chance to help a team get active in September.
“You could have a team that is full of professional preparers who are happy about eighth place and get two of those players for $ 400,000 each,” he said.
“Or you go, ‘I’ll give the match winner $ 800,000 and live with the consequences.’
“I’m ready to live with whims that come with Mercury wildcard talent – up to a point.”
De Goey will be tried on October 30 for indecent assault.
WILL MOORE, MIHOCEK AND DAICOS RE-SIGN?
All signs point to Darcy Moore signing a new deal despite the interest from rivals in recent years. The same goes for Josh Daicos, who won’t be handed a big business like Moore and De Goey.
But the Magpies have work to do on Brody Mihocek’s contract – and it’s not easy to find out its worth.
The 27-year-old forward played number 1 within 50 for the club in 2019 and 2020, scoring 61 goals in 40 games.
The Herald Sun. reported that the two parties are still a long way apart for his next contract and that the clubs are still waiting for information from the AFL on list sizes and the salary cap.
AFL Media reported that Mihocek had been offered a three-year contract extension by the Magpies, but the two parties were some distance apart in terms of salary.
Collingwood designed Mihocek as a rookie pick from the VFL at a ripe old age, so he wasn’t on a large salary package.
Magpies press conference
Can the pies afford to bring a gun forward?
After losing in the semi-finals, Buckley confirmed that the club are looking to bring in a number of key players to get promoted again in 2020 – but with a tight cap there will be some restrictions on Ned Guy and his team.
Foxfooty.com.au reported Collingwood’s interest in Jack Gunston – and without naming the Hawthorn striker, Buckley suggested that a mobile goalkicker be on the club’s radar.
“We would have played Will Kelly all season if we could, but that was an unfortunate injury for him,” said Buckley.
“He was pushing really late, but we think he’s a very likely guy. Mark Keane was playing a game. We would have liked him to play more, but we believe he will prevail from a key position, be it forwards or backwards. We believe he has the attributes for both.
“So yes, potentially forward. But I think how the game is played. It’s multidimensional forward. There aren’t that many Tom Hawkins or Charlie Dixon. Mason Cox played a role for us and was a small goal for us before the ball. I suppose if you have any of these guys you’re doing better than most of the others.
“I think the way the game is played and how it is contested and defended is not your answer the bigger the more awkward strikers are.”

Ben Brown and Jeremy Cameron are two other key strikers who haven’t signed for 2021 yet. The latter has been telling his management throughout the year that he wants to stay with the Giants.
However, after Cameron received an offer below his price, he could still be reached.
If De Goey leaves, it seems likely that he’s leaving enough room for Cameron to be wedged in.
However, Cameron is not believed to be interested in living in Melbourne’s foot bladder – which Collingwood is the ultimate example of. As an avid fisherman, a team like Geelong would make more sense from a lifestyle perspective.
Brown threatens as a replacement option, with its price slashed until a difficult 2020, despite the fact that several clubs including Melbourne, Essendon and St. Kilda were linked to the Kangaroos forward. A bidding war could then increase its price.
Collingwood was also reported to have had talks about Josh Kennedy’s services despite Buckley severing ties with the Eagles’ veteran on Saturday. Kennedy signed again with his current club last week.
BUT THAT LEAVES A BURNING QUESTION …
Even if Collingwood signs all De Goey, Moore, Mihocek and Daicos, where are they?
It was clear that getting into the 2020 season to score a win was the Magpies’ biggest problem, and the season itself didn’t stop people from that idea. The end of their year with just one goal in three quarters summed it up.
But the magpies face a cap squeeze just to keep theirs current Forward line. That said, they wouldn’t add anyone to fix their problems.
Nathan Buckley is an excellent coach, but does he have the right tactics to solve his team’s problems with their current players? Or do they actually have to make list changes to solve things?
It’s an impossible question to answer. But you have to try.
