Crows, Eagles and Synchronicity?

A fellow blogger who lives in the United States and doesn't follow AFL football posted this image and a link to the site he got the image from in a closed Facebook group I belong to on July 3rd, 2015.
Crow Hitches a Ride on a Bald Eagle
"Incredible images of an animal very casually hitching a ride on another have been captured – this time, a cheeky crow taking a mid-flight pit stop on the back of a majestic bald eagle.
The photographs were captured by California-based Phoo Chan."
Phillip "Phil" Walsh (15 March 1960 – 3 July 2015) was an Australian rules footballer and coach of the Adelaide Crows.
Motto: "We Fly As One"
On 3 July 2015, Walsh was found dead in his home in South Australia with multiple stab wounds. 
His son Cy was charged with murder.
 Phil Walsh finished his playing career with the Brisbane Bears 
(now the Brisbane Lions ... the team I support) 
and won their inaugural best and fairest award in 1987.
Oddly, the last game he coached before he was murdered 
(no pun intended in regards to murder being a flock of crows)
was against my team the Brisbane Lions 
(his old Brisbane Bears club) 
up here in Brisbane.
When Dyami (Dyami means eagle in pueblo),
the blogger who posted the photo and link was asked where he lived, he replied ,
"Indiana ... we have eagles ... but i have never seen one. 
 I see a hawk almost every time i leave the house ... especially if i'm walking or on a bike."
 I wrote back,
"The Crows have been in the news all day over here in Australia, because of a murder".

Cy Walsh, charged with murdering father, Adelaide Crows coach Phil Walsh, sedated during bedside hearing
  It's darkly synchronistic that the Friday night July 4th AFL game was between two bird themed teams, the Hawks and the Magpies, and they offered a heartfelt gesture of solidarity and support to the murdered Adelaide Crows coach on the night.
This game was already scheduled before Walsh's murder by the way. 
The Crows game for that weekend against Geelong was canceled.
But the following week and the Crows first game back since the passing of Phil Walsh was against the West Coast Eagles, of all teams.
The Crows line up for a minute's silence
 to pay respect to Phil Walsh
The Adelaide Crows and West Coast Eagles
Phil Walsh.
