#BREAKING: Sam Newman To Replace Eddie McGuire As Collingwood Club President

Collingwood Football club have announced that controversial media personality and former Geelong ruckman Sam Newman will replace Eddie Maguire as club president.

“Sam is a well respected member of the AFL community,” says a Collingwood press release release issued a short time ago. “We’re confident he will be a real asset to the club.”

After 22 years as Collingwood President, Eddie McGuire yesterday stepped down from the role after a damning report accused the club of fostering “systemic racism.”

The club’s new President Sam Newman has also been widely accused of racism.

He resigned from his hosting roles at Channel 9 after saying that George Floyd – who died when a police officer kneeled on his neck for nearly nine minutes – was “a piece of shit”.

“Management are confident Sam Newman will fit perfectly into our club culture,” says the press release. “

Sam Newman is expected to face the media shortly.

More to come.
