Back in the 1990s in Australia I was a hometown fan of a struggling Australian rules football expansion team called the Brisbane Bears. The Bears, who had never won the title, drafted a young player by the name of Nathan Buckley.
Buckley proved to be a class player, and would be a fixture in "all star" teams, but he wanted a premiership. They tried everything to convince him to stay, even changing coaches, but it wasn't enough. In 1994 he negotiated his way to a transfer to another club, perennial powerhouse Collingwood.
Brisbane's fans were simultaneously outraged and disappointed.
Several years later, in 2002, playing for Collingwood, he finally reached the grand final. Who was he playing?
Ironically for Nathan Buckley, it was the now renamed Brisbane Lions, who were defending champions, having won the title the previous year.
The Lions won again.
In 2003, Collingwood again made the grand final. Again against the Brisbane Lions.
The Lions won again. Their third championship in a row.
Nathan Buckley retired in 2007, considered one of the greatest players ever, he never did win a championship.
Best of luck where-ever it is you end up, Dwight!
