Having spent 14 years in the AFL with Collingwood, it's fair to say Ben Reid has a story to tell.
On this week's episode of The Border Mail Sport Podcast, we hear memories from the day Reid was drafted and the daunting experience of training with the Pies' big names just 48 hours later.
He reveals what it was like to play in the unforgettable drawn grand final of 2010 and the conversation with captain Nick Maxwell which changed his career.
Reid opens up about his battle with injuries and addresses some of the media coverage Collingwood received over the years.
