Sport Harvey flags subtle Collingwood changes
Pies deliver perfect ending for Buckley
Collingwood have marked Nathan Buckley's final game as coach with a stirring upset 17-point win over AFL ladder leaders Melbourne at the SCG. © Dean Lewins/AAP PHOTOS Collingwood have farewelled coach Nathan Buckley in style with a 17-point AFL win over Melbourne. Down by four points at quarter-time, Collingwood led by 16 points and five points at halftime and three-quarter time respectively, before sealing the 11.14 (80) to 9.9 (63) win with three goals to one in the final term. It was the Demons' second loss and lowest score of the season but they could have no complaints.
Interim coach Robert Harvey has played down talk of a dramatic attacking shift to Collingwood's game style under his watch after taking the reins from Nathan Buckley.
A long-time assistant to Buckley, who departed after an emotional Queen's Birthday win over Melbourne, Harvey will use the next nine weeks as an audition for the top job.
The 49-year-old could even find himself in the running for coaching roles at rival clubs, should they arise.
But Harvey insisted his focus ahead of Saturday's clash with Fremantle at Marvel Stadium is solely on developing a regenerating Magpies side for the remainder of the season.
Hamas Asks Palestinians to 'Resist' Israeli Nationalist Parade Through Jerusalem's Old City
Hamas urged Palestinians to "rise up in the face of the occupier and resist it by all means to stop its crimes and arrogance."The parade's approval comes weeks after a violent 11-day war between Israel and Hamas militants and is planned to take place Tuesday. Israeli media reported that the parade's crowd would not enter the Muslim Quarter as it always has each year. The celebration was supposed to take place May 10 but had been delayed due to tensions between Israelis and Palestinians.
"I just see it as a great opportunity for me and I see my role as trying to get the best out of these players," Harvey said on Thursday in his first press conference as interim coach.
"To be honest, I haven't thought too much about it (the full-time job).
"I see it as a nine-week block to do my best to hopefully get some good footy played by our boys, that they enjoy it and our fans like what they see.
"That's the way I see it. The rest sort of, in time, looks after itself."
Harvey described Buckley as a "great mentor of mine" and said the pair had exchanged several messages since the latter's departure.
He said Buckley wished him well upon bowing out this month after almost a decade as coach.
The Magpies (4-9) were heavily criticised for a perceived overly defensive game style under Buckley this season and vice-captain Taylor Adams this week suggested a more attack-minded plan may be implemented.
Harvey Weinstein can be transferred to Los Angeles, judge rules
Jailed ex-filmmaker Harvey Weinstein, who is serving a 23-year prison sentence for rape and sexual assault in New York, can be transferred to Los Angeles, a judge ruled Tuesday, paving the way for a new trial on additional charges. The 69-year-old former Hollywood mogul is accused in Los Angeles of rape and sexual assault against five women, which would make him eligible for up to 140 years in prison. Weinstein denies all charges, and has always maintained that his interactions with the women who brought the New York and Los Angeles cases against him were consensual.Weinstein filed an appeal in April in New York against the rape and sexual assault convictions.
But Harvey indicated any changes will be subtle.
"(Buckley and I) have worked together for a long time and we've worked closely with game-plan stuff together, but I clearly have my own views on some things," Harvey said.
"I'll sort of bleed those into our game as we go, but largely I've been giving my thoughts for a long time on how it should be played as part of our coaching panel.
"There's respect there and I'll just keep working on those things."
A former St Kilda champion and dual Brownlow Medal winner, Harvey has missed out on "a few" senior coaching jobs in the past but still has an appetite to test his wares.
"It's disappointing when you miss jobs, obviously," Harvey said.
"You want to get a job when it comes up but I've learnt to roll with that a bit better and be a bit more relaxed about it."
