A former Collingwood star detailed new explosive allegations against the Magpies and labeled her former coach Nathan Buckley “paranoid”.

Former Collingwood star Heritier Lumumba has launched a series of new misconduct allegations at his former club.

In the dossier delivered to herald sunLumumba details several new allegations against prominent Magpies figures, including the use of a pornographic image at a 2014 team meeting by an assistant manager.

“An assistant coach showed a pornographic image during a team meeting to emphasize a point he was making,” Lumumba said in the dossier.

“One of the rules of the team was ‘come forward’, so it showed a picture of a group of about five or more men ejaculating on a woman’s face with the words ‘come forward’ as a caption.

“Nathan Buckley was the head coach and he seemed unflappable.”

Lumumba also said former CEO Gary Pert made sexually inappropriate comments in front of players’ wives and partners on a night out in 2011.

He asked for an apology and Pert was forced to apologize to the players, but Lumumba said he felt targeted afterwards.

The document also revealed the extent of his ongoing dispute with former Collingwood manager Nathan Buckley.

The 2010 Premiership player said in his senior year at the Magpies: “Buckley has become more and more paranoid of me.

“In team matches I would constantly catch him staring at me and even when he spoke in front of the group he would constantly look down on me.

“It became too much for me, so I went through it in private. He stated that she felt that I was judging him for his intelligence and that I was asking too much of the club.

“When it came to the club culture, he became hyper defensive to be held to the standards and values ​​he was supposed to lead.”

Lumumba has repeatedly spoken of an alleged racist culture says it existed in Collingwood during his time with the AFL giant. He says there was a culture of “racist jokes” and claims he was called a “chimpanzee” by teammates.

He originally planned to submit his file to Collingwood as part of the post-reconciliation process Thurs better report on racism, which eventually led to Eddie McGuire’s resignation as president of the Magpies.

But this did not happen after Lumumba, Leon Davis and Andrew Krakouer formally completely severed the ties with the club last month for handling the racism allegations.

Buckley responded to Lumumba’s claims on the radio on Monday morning.

“I won’t be attracted to the details and I won’t say Heritier is right here, wrong here because that’s his perspective of the truth,” Buckley told SEN.

“But there are other versions of the truth that are very far from the way he perceives it.

“Mine is very different from what it presents, but the context becomes important and the whole idea of ​​the process is to have an open, respectful dialogue so that we can actually move forward in a positive way.

“It seems Heritier doesn’t really want to move on unless, I don’t know, heads have to roll. I don’t know exactly what he’s looking for or what his needs are for him to feel like he’s been listened to.

“He apologized – I apologized – to him; the club apologized to him … for the environment he was in – and not just for Heritier – but for the other indigenous players who have passed.

“I haven’t been perfect as a leader. I haven’t been perfect as a person.

“I thought about it consciously: I put my head on the pillow last night and slept well because I know that I have owned my imperfections and I have owned the things I am responsible for.

“My conscience is clear in that sense – it doesn’t mean I was perfect, it doesn’t mean I couldn’t have done better – but I’m open-minded to keep learning and I think the club is too.”

Buckley was asked specifically about Lumumba’s allegations of using a pornographic image at a team meeting.

“What I would say here (is) will not go into the details of what’s inside (the dossier),” Buckley said.

“There are a lot of things that aren’t right in there. One thing I do know is that if you start denying one and then talking about another, you create a highlight of a problem that I believe across the board that is not the truth that I know to be true.
