Bob Murphy and Andy Maher have named their ‘Mount Rushmore’ for Collingwood.

For those unaware, they are ranking the top four people (players, coaches or others) who symbolise the heart, soul and the spirit, those who have ignited the imagination and enhanced the foundation of the clubs they have represented – in Andy’s words. The four people who tell the story of the football club – in Bob's words.

They're not necessarily just the four best players the club has ever had.

It came down to Gordon Coventry and Nathan Buckley for the final spot, with Murphy arguing for Buckley and Maher for Coventry.

In the end, it was up to the Twitter followers to decide.

McHale coached Collingwood to nine premierships between 1917 and 1936.

Shaw captained the Pies to their 1990 premiership and won two best and fairests at his time at the club.

Rose won four best and fairests for the Magpies and is a member of the Australian football Hall of Fame.

Coventry kicked 1299 goals across his 306-game career and was a part of five Collingwood premiership teams.
