News[edit]

Pre-Season

February

  • President Eddie McGuire has been appointed CEO of the Nine Network. He had to give up as host on several TV shows, but remained as president of the club, despite having to live in Sydney.
  • Sean Rusling injures his shoulder on the Community Camp in Northern Sydney. He is expected to miss around 2 months of action.
  • Collingwood wins first game of the NAB Cup against St Kilda in fine style, winning in extra time. Fraser Gehrig missed a shot on goal after the siren to draw the match, therefore, as a knockout competition winner was decided in extra time.

March

April

May

  • Heath Shaw receives the Round 5 AFL Rising Star nomination.
  • Collingwood sit first on the ladder after a Round 6 victory over Carlton.
  • The club is fined a massive $200,000 by the TAC after the Morrison incident
  • Collingwood beat Geelong by 102 points in Round 8 at the MCG.
  • Rhyce Shaw makes his comeback to the side after his season ending knee injury in 2005.

June

July

  • Dual best and fairest Paul Licuria is 'rested' for the match against West Coast. Collingwood wins convincingly, avenging defeat in Round 7.
  • Goal-sneak Leon Davis fractures his left ankle.
  • Chris Tarrant and Ben Johnson involved in brawl outside a Port Melbourne hotel, leaving one man in injured.

August

  • Chris Tarrant and Ben Johnson are fined $5000 by the club for breaking team rules.
  • Blake Caracella announces his retirement, coming after his neck injury sustained in Round 10.
  • Sam Iles makes his debut against Adelaide at AAMI Stadium
  • Collingwood loses against Essendon in Round 19 – thus giving them the ignominy of being the only Victorian team to lose to the Bombers during the 2006 season. This loss would cost Collingwood a top four position at the end of the season. Collingwood had already won the earlier ANZAC Day match.
  • A bronze statue in the honour of Bob Rose is revealed outside the Lexus Centre.
  • Forward Alan Didak receives excess media attention, after he was kicked out of a club for a dispute with his girlfriend.

Playing List 2006[edit]

Nathan Buckley will be the 2006 captain, this being his 7th season as the skipper of the Pies. Collingwood had delisted several players last season, including Brownlow Medallist Shane Woewodin, and traded Richard Cole to Essendon. They had picked up several young players, including priority/first round draftees Dale Thomas and Scott Pendlebury in the 2005 NAB Draft. With the high amount of senior players departed in 2005, both Ben Davies and David Fanning got elevated to the Senior List.

2006 Fixtures[edit]

With the 2006 Commonwealth Games being hosted by Melbourne, Australia, The M.C.G. will be the main venue, dis-allowing games for AFL Football. Collingwood plays its first three games at the Telstra Dome, before being playing the traditional ANZAC Day clash against Essendon in what will be the return to the MCG, as the Games will have been concluded. This is fixtured, however, the venue may not be ready for hosting an AFL match in time.

Collingwood travels 4 times, twice to Adelaide, in a 3 week period late in the season. They also travel to Perth and Sydney during the season.
