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

The best I’ve seen, KK. That’s why he deserves this kinda respectful farewell

Cameron Smith has earned right to retire on his terms, provided he retires before the grand final

Paul may combust, I truly believe that

I think this is a great idea Paul. Give him the entire arts budget

Beathy, I like your statue idea. It is a gesture that implies an immediate departure. You don’t play on in front of your copper bust, it’s unedifying. Cameron would know this

Will need to shave down but I’m def keen mate

The Dogs of War mentality wasn’t intended for the board room

Yep BD, spot on mate. It wouldn’t be rugby league or Sydney if it were a harmonious board full of selfless administrators

The Dogs of War mentality wasn’t intended for the board room

Too right again KK. This financial saga could take years to repair, possibly the covid economic crash of rugby league but worse

The Dogs of War mentality wasn’t intended for the board room

Agreed Paul. A few years back, I would’ve frolicked in the streets at their misfortune. But rugby league needs a strong Dogs (mainly for the TV deal)

The Dogs of War mentality wasn’t intended for the board room

Well said, TB. The Dogs, for want of a better term, were always bastards. Still have nightmares in September of stony-faced Folkes hatching plans behind Oakleys. Seems forever ago. What’s Cement up to?

Thanks Nat, it hurt me more than it hurt Newcastle. That’s how I justify it, anyway

Newcastle addresses inconsistency by simply moving it up the table

Hello kk, and thank you for your generous praise. When are you going to regale us again with your distinctive take on the GGOA? I will refresh page furiously in anticipation

Newcastle addresses inconsistency by simply moving it up the table

Thanks Barry- no worries here mate, I’m a Roosters fan. So it’s a different type of disturbed

Thanks Paul. You’re right mate, this was my exact aim- and to make 3 paragraphs of jokes about Chad Townsend

You’re right, Tim, I am a touch lost. However if there’s two things on earth I adore, it’s Bradman and fancy dress. Give me more!

Did he play for the Bears? If so, definitely!

Psychologists to apply for Jobkeeper if Eels win 2020 NRL premiership

K-Man, we are on the same wavelength! Another superb read mate. It’s almost worth the crippled economy just to see you poor buggers achieve something that isn’t the Nines or a retrial

Big Daddy, this combination would be more devastating to their chances than recalling Steve Kearney or Chris Thorman

Thank you Kman, love your feedback. I’m glad this has struck the right tone for you poor beleaguered Eels fans. As for my intimate knowledge, I would like to thank my research manager Mr. G. Oogle

The changing social behaviours of Covid #645: Respecting the Eels

KK, your prose is tremendously intoxicating, as per usual. And who amongst us hasn’t craved the smell of Thirsty Lynch’s socks? A sensory delight!

The changing social behaviours of Covid #645: Respecting the Eels

Very good Nat, wished I’d thought of that

The changing social behaviours of Covid #645: Respecting the Eels

Very true Paul, you have summed up the beauty of Parramatta nicely. The thing that separates them from competitors is their range. No team can boast a wider spectrum of potential calamity

The changing social behaviours of Covid #645: Respecting the Eels

Yes, hard to disagree TB. But I also think a statue outside Bankwest of Gutho hoisting a tiny star could catch on

Yes Bazza, the Eels are one thing, but I’m still pinching myself about Nick

Thanks for the lovely feedback KK and K-Man, my head has inflated to Paul Kent proportions. You could post a billboard on my forehead. Very humbled. Great read too K-Man!

Alarm bells ring as Wests Tigers enter the top eight

Thanks for the lovely feedback everybody. Will definitely be revisiting this topic when Smith brings up his next 400 games
