Brodie Grundy wins his second
Copeland Trophy as Collingwood's best and fairest for the 2019 season.
Grundy polled 174 votes, while ultra-consistent skipper Scott Pendlebury (158) was runner-up and dashing defender Jack Crisp (147) also finished on the podium.
"My life has changed forever playing for the Collingwood Football Club. It's been a home for me since I turned 18 away from home, coming from interstate," Grundy said.
"To go to games and see people with the No.4 on their jumper or wear one sock up, one sock down … I'll never be able to say thank you enough for how supported I've felt by the Magpie supporters.
"Each week I try to put it all out there and try to repay them and my teammates and coaches for all their support.
"My life is far better for being involved with this organisation and I'm looking forward to next year."

Jack Crisp reveals he played through
the pain of a serious hip injury and a stress fracture in his back during the 2018 finals series for the Magpies.
Crisp endured two seasons with a "pretty bad" hip problem that would have had serious ramifications for his 2019 season had he not undergone off-season surgery.
"(World-renowned, Melbourne-based hip surgeon) John O'Donnell said, 'Lucky you went in now,' because I probably would've been pretty stuffed this year if I didn't have surgery," Crisp said.
"Every time I moved my hip, a bone spur was ripping some cartilage, so I had a flap of cartilage flapping around in my hip. The ball-and-socket (joint) was getting jammed and it chipped away at the bone. It was a bit worn out."

Jack Crisp signs a contract extension that will keep him at Collingwood until the end of 2023.
"It's a pretty hard industry, the AFL, and if I'm going to get (offered) a long-term contract, I'd be more than happy to do that," Crisp said.
"I'd love to play as long as I can. It doesn't matter what the money is."

A bulked-up Jack Crisp is ready to make a more permanent switch to defence in 2018.
"I've enjoyed every bit of the transition to be honest," Crisp said.
"It's just adding another string to the bow because you can't just play one position these days."
He has also had to slightly change his body – adding more weight to his frame and improving his strength – to cope with the demands of the position.
"Sometimes in one-on-ones and with contested footy I've been pushed off a little bit too easily," he said.
"With the new gym program and the running we're doing out here, it's more explosive stuff and that's been the focus. So if I can hold my weight a bit heavier and maintain that towards games I'll be laughing."

Jack Crisp plans to boost his body weight and strength in 2018 as he becomes a permanent half-back flanker.
"I'll play maybe a kilo heavier (to) be a little bit stronger … (and) my sprint and surge stuff is going to be more consistent," Crisp told RSN927 radio.
"I'm feeling pretty good so far. If I can learn to run for long periods of time with an extra kilo on my body I think I'll be better off."
Sunday, 16 April 2017
Jack Crisp will play his 54th straight AFL match this week against St Kilda.
"It's a little milestone I've been quietly happy with to be honest," Crisp said.
"After playing 18 games in three years at Brisbane I haven't missed a beat since coming down here.
"It's been the best thing that's happened to me and I thank 'Bucks' for keeping on playing me even when I haven't been playing my best footy."

Just two other Magpies, Len Thompson (five) and Nathan Buckley (six), have taken home the honour on more occasions.

Young midfielders Jack Crisp (113) and Taylor Adams (103) held down third and fourth-place finishes respectively.

Jack Crisp says he forgot players weren't allowed to bet on football when he placed a wager of more than $100 that involved the AFL last year.
"It was obviously a big mistake. It shouldn't have been done," Crisp said.
"It was just a lapse in my thinking, because I'd forgotten completely about it until I got reminded.
"I felt pretty bad and awful of course."

Jack Crisp is fined $5000 by the AFL but will be free to face his old side the Brisbane Lions in round one after the League found him guilty of multiple betting offenses.
While at the Lions last year Crisp placed bets on an AFL market totaling $129.
Crisp's cooperation with the AFL saved him from suspension, but the 21-year-old will undergo counseling for as long as deemed required by the counselor – in consultation with Crisp and the club.

Jack Crisp is the latest player to be caught up in a betting scandal, with the 21-year-old at the centre of a new AFL investigation.
The League's integrity unit is investigating a wager made early last season when Crisp was playing at the Brisbane Lions.
Collingwood football boss Neil Balme confirmed the betting probe in a statement.
"Collingwood is aware of the AFL looking into a bet Jack may have placed early last year, while he was playing for Brisbane," Balme said.
"As we understand it, the investigation is continuing and we await the outcome."

Jack Crisp seizes his opportunities after being elevated from the Lions' rookie list due to a long-term injury to Matthew Leuenberger, averaging 15 disposals and 4 tackles in three games.
"I wasn't expecting to get a game because I was on the rookie list so I just thought I'd attack this year, do a good pre-season and do the best I could in reserves so the coaches could see what I could do and hopefully get elevated off the rookie list at the end of the year," he said.
"I'm feeling a bit more comfortable running out, it's not so nerve-racking any more. I'm just starting to get a feel for the game and I just want to keep going out there and getting used to it so I can improve."
