Its the obvious question that most AFL fans are asking now Adelaide have emerged as a genuine premiership threat.How good would the Crows be if Patrick Dangerfield had stayed?Or, to put it another way, how well are they going without him?The former Crow has taken his game to new heights in 2016, standing alone as Brownlow Medal favourite at odds not dissimilar to the ones enjoyed by winner Nat Fyfe last year.Its impossible to say the Crows wouldnt be a better side without the 26-year-old in it, but its not a question anyone at West Lakes is keen to entertain.Weve moved into a different space now, coach Don Pyke said.Weve got guys who have come in and relished the opportunity thats been presented.To be honest, theyre playing their role and playing it really well. We look forward.Pyke is hoping that his team without their former champion can grow into a champion team, and on the evidence of the past two months, theyre well on the way.The Crows are the leagues form side after notching seven-straight victories including three over finals-bound sides.There was scarcely a poor performance on the field; even the teams lowest ball-getters played a role.Charlie Cameron and Mitch McGovern only had nine touches each but Cameron had seven tackles and McGovern kicked a classy snap when the contest was hot.McGovern could be the man most to benefit from Dangerfields departure, debuting in round one and playing every match this season.He hasnt stopped to consider the alternate reality where Dangerfield might have made a different choice.We dont think about it at all, he said.It was a big talking point last year but to the credit of the boys, weve filled the spot really well and you can see the benefits on the scoreboard.We had 10 individual goalkickers (against Carlton).We know were a good attacking side ... we all chip in. . -- Josh Sterk scored once and set up two more as the Oshawa Generals edged the visiting Belleville Bulls 3-2 on Friday in Ontario Hockey League action. . -- San Francisco 49ers linebacker Ahmad Brooks was fined $15,570 by the NFL on Wednesday for his hit on Saints quarterback Drew Brees last Sunday. . -- Sergey Tolchinksy scored his second goal of the game 3:56 into overtime as the Sault Ste. .J. -- Marty Brodeur beat the Pittsburgh Penguins yet again. . The lawyers filed a 33-page amended complaint Tuesday in federal court in Manhattan, expanding on the suit originally filed Oct. 3 in New York Supreme Court. Arbitrator Fredric Horowitz last week refused to compel Selig to testify in the grievance, and Rodriguez then walked out of the hearing without testifying. Collingwood are on the hunt for their fifth football boss since 2013 after the resignation of Graeme Allan following his AFL ban.The latest change comes at a critical time for the Magpies, with coach Nathan Buckley needing a big season from the team next year to ensure he keeps his job.Collingwood were among the big losers out of Tuesdays AFL Commission meeting, with Allan falling on his sword shortly after he accepted a 12-month AFL ban for his part in the Lachie Whitfield affair.His departure is a blow for Magpies president Eddie McGuire, who was pivotal in luring him from Greater Western Sydney this year.McGuire will enter his 19th season in charge next year - a full decade more than the next longest-serving current club president, Adelaides Rob Chapman.McGuire railed against media reports suggesting his position was under pressure.What is going to happen and what I can see from one hundred miles, is that papers, the cricket is no good and they want to get a story going, McGuire said on Triple M on Wednesday.And the story that they are all trying to rev up is that Collingwood (are in) disarray and Im under pressure etcetera.It is not happening. It is a made-up attack on the football club and me.Geoff Walsh, one of the key figures in Collingwoods 2010 premiership, left his role as Magpies football manager in 2013.Since then Rodney Eade, Neil Balme and most recently Allan have filled the role.Now Collingwood football operations manager Marcus Wagner will have the job on an interim basis while they look for a full-time replacement.ddddddddddddAllan, the Giants football boss at the time, was banned after Whitfield stayed at then-GWS welfare manager Craig Lamberts house for three days in May last year, allegedly to avoid a potential drug test.The trio were ultimately penalised for breaching the AFLs rules and not the anti-doping code.Whitfield will miss seven games of the 2017 season after accepting a six-month ban and Lambert has copped a 12-month suspension, with all sanctions ticked off by ASADA.Allan only replaced Balme in August after initially joining the club in a more development-based role in May, with the Pies aware he was under investigation when they hired him.But in accepting his resignation, the club revealed they were not made fully aware of all facets of the investigation.Collingwood received from Allan, in the form of a statutory declaration, a satisfactory account of the events in question, a club statement read.Collingwood was not aware or informed of the fact the matter was with the Australian Sports Anti-Doping Authority at the time of Allans appointment.Balme has since been appointed football chief at Richmond, with Allans absence leaving Collingwoods football department in a parlous state heading into a make-or-break year for Buckley.
