Jetta and the Hard Stuff

Recommended Posts

Should be knighted for services to Australian Rules Football.

In fact I'll have a chat to Meaghan and Harry when they pop in for a tea this week....

As an aside I wonder why Jetta doesn't get booed by opposition supporters?

It takes all types, I suppose!  I just cheered myself hoarse at the time, and sat back and marvelled each time I've watched a replay!

"Jetta and the Hard stuff"

Neville is made of 'hard stuff' for the 'hard stuff'.

Hard stuff is made of Neville Jetta.

Which in comparison is soft.

I am just about to rate Jetta higher than Matty Whelan who was one of the bets back pocket players I have seen at Melbourne. You could almost bet your house on Jetta.

ooohhh...that's great. I love(d) Wrecker... but I think on body of work...and perhaps his most recent game (annihilation of Dangerfield)...it's in Nev's favour. Though a broken leg somewhere, may just enhance his stature more.

I am sure some Cat fans would claim that he pulled Dunderfield's arm before taking the mark.

I must say I didn't look at Duckwood or Hawkins at the time but I am sure they would have felt hard done by for not getting the free.  And of course had the game been at Kardinia Park they probably would have.

If I keep the reigning All Australian and the widely acknowledged AFL No 1 small forward goalless in his most important game of the year, should I be pizzed off that I didn’t even make the AA squad.

The most amazing thing about Dangerfield's game against us was the sheer number of deliberate "frees" (either paid or not paid) he committed. Like Jetta in the vid, every single time Danger was beaten he slung his opponent to the ground. And yet he was hardly ever pinged.

Two of the cleanest hits in the past 2 weeks you are ever likely to see.

The fact he ironed out 2 important players for the other team made it more memorable.

I thought Jetta's year has been a bit mixed. But his last few weeks have been as good as any in his career. It is nice to see him regularly praised in the media for his unflinching commitment to doing whatever is necessary (and legal) for his team.

I just wish commentators would stop referring to Jetta as being underrated and just start rating him.

The more they refer to him as "underrated" by definition they are increasingly incorrect.

@dl4e I would liken Lord Nev to George Gregan (especially the tackle on All black Jeff Wilson). And yes I have also been thinking about comparisons to Wrecker (who was also a good ball user if I remember correctly.) 

The heart in both of these men is just enormous. I am in awe.

Making the AA selectors look totally incompetent.

He smashes everyone he plays on.  He is a star.

Relayed to me from the rooms directly after the game ...... Nev was so sore he couldn’t walk... left nothing on the field... soul of the team

No .... that was tears.

Softened up by Viney in past encounters, and that was le coup de grace.
