Dane was named best and fairest in the 2004 Bathurst mixed indoor cricket competition. With nothing in the game left to achieve, he immediately retired at his peak to a reclusive life ensconced in the velvet of organised contests. Catch the man here: @eld2_0

Love it, Paul, cheers mate. And apologies for haunting you with Little Paul, which sounds super weird as I type it

The crisis merchant's memorable moments of 2018

Dutski, you’re too kind! The crises have fed me bountifully this year. Kinda makes me appreciated unbalanced journalism. Not good.

BD, have you been watching us through the DT’s long lens?

Bloody dangerous, I reckon

Great read AJ! We should collab next time and create one huge crises mega-sludge ball. I reckon it would look like that massive meteor of nappies they dug up from the London underground

Presenting the 2018 Crises awards

Cheers Justin, much appreciated. The Crises Tidal Wave can power endless pieces, I’m actually expecting it in bible form soon

Too right TB- it was a disgracefully poor year for disgrace. Also can’t believe I overlooked the Proctor Squeeze. I love the Gorski and could listen to him talk wheels all day!

God this is funny. Crack and Spanks for alt-comms on GF day please

Crackling and Spanks: Grist for the granny

AJL you legend, thank you for detecting this subtle reference!

Slater defence to fight ban saying "at least he was wearing pants"

It’s a straight-to-DVD blockbuster just waiting to happen. You could play Honest Randy too

KK, I’m actually more interested in securing at seat at the hearing rather than Sunday at ANZ- this is a true biggun

Bloody hell, this is excellent

Happy 123rd, rugby league

Beautiful stuff EJ. Remember too: no need to pack your own plastic furniture for Suncorp either. Luxury

Barrett to depart Manly after request for facilities “not in spirit of club"

Interesting, Randy. Such is the depths of their despair, perhaps Manly need Darren Lockyer in drag

Madge the obvious choice there, but any idea of what percentage of him is a ‘Manly person?’

Barrett to depart Manly after request for facilities “not in spirit of club"

KK, I await this with great zeal. Trent does have the movie star looks, but in saying this, I rate him the second most attractive Manly coach after Graham Lowe

Left field, Paul. But we may get more sense on rugby league from a cricketer or a vocal artist

Forty, this is the kinda rational and intelligent insight Manly need as CEO. Got anything on for the next 2-3 months?

Cheers TB. I thought they were flush too. Seems shiny new stuff can just rapidly age once a team starts losing

Thanks for reading everyone. Some of these comments are absolute gold. Carney, Gould, barbecues, 10 year plans, yoga based pre-seasons, another Super League war? Outstanding suggestions all round! The game will be back where it belongs in no time- shrunk to a one-inch column in the details section.

The NRL is being ruined by rugby league

“Informed”? “Intelligent”? “Lower grades”? C’mon Billy, you know I’m not the go-to for research and logic!
Will work on the funny for you though.
Thanks for reading too

We should indict Hasler and Maguire for losses of Damien Cook

Hey Mushi- was definitely meant to refer to the Globetrotter’s whipping boys. Must remember to put the bottle down before hitting the keyboard!

Unsolved mysteries: Wests Tigers own the top four, reside in ninth

You’re on to something there, KK. Concord, Clearys and Concussions – the Tigers new ‘Big Three’?

StuMac, this is poetry. I was right there with you on that undulating 10th place roller coaster. Superb stuff mate!

Owen you legend. Thanks for your long-time readership! And I’m sorry to all other combatants of the ISP for my unfortunate comparison
