Stevie J Explains How Collingwood Cost Themselves Two Flags By Not Trading For Him

Triple premiership Cat and Norm Smith Medallist Steve Johnson has joined the Sunday Rub, and explained this weekend how Collingwood cost themselves two flags not trading for him in 2006.

STEVIE J ON HOW THE PIES COST THEMSELVES TWO FLAGS:

There was a game here (at the MCG), the 2007 prelim final, which went right down to the wire, they tested us,” Stevie J said on the Sunday Rub.

“They would have gone on to beat Port Adelaide.

“Daisy, they won the premiership in 2010, so that would have been the second one… and then maybe 11, we just got over the line.”

Stevie J’s Geelong knocked the Pies off in 2007 and 2009 preliminary finals, before besting them in an epic 2011 grand final.

It could have been so different for Collingwood if they’d taken the punt!
