It simply means, as Jack Dyer famously put it, “not getting where the ball ain’t”, and in 2020 Darcy Moore proved he is one of the game’s brainiest.
His talent was evident from the start of his career, with Collingwood using the father and son rule to beat other clubs chasing his signature.

Eighteenth century Spanish artist Fransisco Goya believed that fantasy and logic were vital to each other and warned of the danger in separating them in his etching ‘The Sleep Of Reason Produces Monsters.’
Magpies fans will always sleep well knowing that Darcy Moore is there to monster opposition forwards.
