There was big AFL news on Wednesday with Nathan Buckley standing down as Collingwood coach.
As former Collingwood player Dane Swan tweeted, Buckley, who played 260 games for Collingwood and coached another 217, "deserved a flag more than anyone at the Pies".
An army kid, Buckley spent a season in Canberra playing alongside another future great at Ainslie, James Hird, who would go on to captain and coach Essendon.
There is a famous team photo of Buckley and Hird as kids wearing the red, black and white for Ainslie.
And both eventually won the under-13s best and fairest for Ainslie.
