Eddie McGuire has become incensed at the current top brass debacles of his beloved football club.
The former Collingwood president, who stepped down in February and has kept mostly quiet about the ugly boardroom struggle between incumbent president Mark Korda and challenger Jeff Browne, made his feelings known about the current state of affairs at the Holden Centre.
"There has been some things that I have been very dismayed about in the process to this particular moment in time," McGuire told Nine's Footy Classified.
"The first thing is that whole EGM nonsense, it was just a debacle and an embarrassment to the Collingwood Football Club.
"And people running around threatening to go to ASIC just cuts me to the core that anyone who would say they're a Collingwood supporter would go to ASIC or go to the law before you sort it out at the Collingwood Football Club like we've been able to do for the best part of a quarter of a century.
"I can see this going on and on and on unless something happens and it's time for people who have the love of Collingwood as their main mantra to now step up."
Speaking passionately on the matter, McGuire continued to express his condemnation on what outlook the club has given fans and the rest of the AFL world.
"It's made us look like a laughing stock," he added.
"I don't want an EGM at the Collingwood Football Club, [I want] the AGM to go ahead in December but with a twist.
"The only thing that will bring me back to the fray is if I see people vandalising the Collingwood Football Club going forward."

"The reason why we have the best sponsors and things is because we're a professional outfit that doesn't carry on."
The 56-year-old hinted at a potential return to the club if things got too out-of-hand, as well as expressing a desire for the appointment of an independent electoral officer and ombudsman.
"I'm starting to hear shenanigans happening in the place of stacking and branching and threatening and all this other routine that I thought I had exterminated out of Collingwood 23 years ago," he continued.
"The only thing that'll bring me back to the fray is if I see people vandalising the Collingwood Football Club going forward.
"I want an independent electoral officer and an ombudsman appointed from this moment on and a line of sight on how this election is going to be called and what's going to happen, whether it's an EGM or an AGM.
"I want to stop people going to the media who are Collingwood haters and getting them to stitch our club up and make us look like a laughing stock, we're all sick of it.
"I want a battle of ideas, I don't want people snipping around on the outside. I want the incumbent board to tell me what the future of this football club is all about and I want Jeff Browne to step up and tell us what his idea of a future is. A sophisticated process for sophisticated people for a sophisticated football club.
"There have been too many lunatics running around the fringes in the last six months and we're not copping it anymore.
"The only objective now is the best for Collingwood, it worked for 23 years. And that's not having a crack at any person individually, it's just gotten out of shape, now let's pull it together, look forward to the future."
On top of their EGM debate, the Magpies are also in the hunt to land a new senior coach after Nathan Buckley's resignation last month.
