Eddie Extends Holiday To Avoid Sacking Buckley

Collingwood FC President Eddie McGuire has extended his holiday to avoid dealing with difficult decisions in the days ahead at his beloved Magpies.

Coach Nathan Buckley is under enormous pressure and suggested his team had reached a "tipping point" after Saturday's loss to Essendon.

Buckley last year said he wouldn't expect to keep his job if Collingwood miss the finals in 2017, which now looks likely.

Sources inside the Triple M radio station where Eddie also works have confirmed to The Seagull that Eddie, who was due back from overseas this Thursday, will now remain aboard for two more weeks.

A Nine Network spokesman said broadcasts of Millionaire Hotseat would not be affected as Eddie had increased the shows pre-recording schedule in the event of Collingwood playing poorly.

It is well-known in Melbourne circles that Eddie absolutely loves Collingwood favourite son Buckley. It is even rumoured that Eddie has a tattoo of Buckley on his back.

Whilst most people don't believe there will be a Romeo And Juliet-style climax should Eddie decide to sack Buckley, it will nevertheless be an emotional time at the Holden Centre.
