    Great work Dan - with the Bullies as well as us. Well done, and long live the spirit of the game.
    He reminds him of the guys, close-set, slow, and never rattled, who were play-makers on the team. (John Updike, seeing Josh Kennedy in a crystal ball)

    Congratulations to Hanners for his maiden TLM win. He was ever so close to winning last year, but was pipped at the post by the fast-finishing JPK.

    I still remember watching schoolboy Dan's first ever game in the NEAFL (or whatever competition the reserves played in back then). After an error-riddled first quarter, where he looked somewhat out of his depth, he came out after the first break and played an almost flawless next three quarters. He was clearly a very fast learner! Those of us watching that game had an inkling that we might have a pretty good player on our hands, but I doubt any of us predicted just how good, or reliable, he would become.

    Thanks Danzar, great work. Hanners a well deserving winner. Love your photos (though that bloke who hung his Bulldogs scarf over your shoulder was a bit cheeky). And totally agree with your comments about the Bulldogs fans in 2016 v the Hawks fans in 2014.
