A bad case of the Colliwobbles.

From "footy - An Aussie Rules Dictionary", by Keith Dunstan, illustrated by Geoff "Jeff" Hook, published by Sun Books.

"Colliwobbles: A deep seated, infectious virus that has affected Collingwood Football Club since the late 1950s."

If you are from Australia, that's probably all you need to hear, for our foreign guests it might help if you know the major symptom is snatching defeat from the jaws of victory!
