McAlister played a significant role in luring Collingwood coach Nathan Buckley from the Brisbane Bears to the Magpies as a player in 1993, with Buckley recalling McAlister on SEN on Wednesday and passing on his condolences.

"It's very sad to see someone who has been such a figurehead at your club pass," Buckley said.
