Yep.  Always good to see our guys in the news for the right reasons.  A lot of the guys seem to do a lot for the community, and they should be commended for it.

Well done, Nev!

There is life after football for Neville.

Seems like a no nonsense guy from my one meeting with him.

Nev is the quintessential quiet achiever on and off the field.  The last thing he would expect is awards for his community work.  Nev won the club 'Ambassador Award' for his community work last year so he would be short odds to win it again tomorrow night.

I reckon he will be very proud to be nominated for the Stynes award given the connection with the club and the great community work example that Jimmy set.  Well done for the nomination.

He is a proud indigenous man who wants to give back, the Juvenile Justice Centre is actually Jeff Garlett's, Nev embraced it along with a few of the other players when Jeff arrived at the Club     he is also proud of the best practice process for indigenous players at Footy Clubs that he and Shaun Burgoyne are involved in producing

Has a very dry sense of humour when you get to know him

Good to see that Jetts has been nominated for the Jim Stynes Community Leadership Award, which is presented on Brownlow night.

His work, which saw him pick up the MFC Club Ambassador Award at the B&F for the second consecutive year earlier this week, includes:

* work with the Red Cross;

* the Juvenile Justice Centre; 

* the Melbourne Indigenous Transition School;

* Headspace in Western Australia during the off-season; and

* as an ambassador for Melbourne University's Indigenous Eye Health Unit supporting trachoma. 

He also works with the Neville Jetta Squad at the Dandenong Stingrays, which gives footballing opportunities to players born overseas or of Indigenous heritage. 

Pretty impressive resume given the time commitments on modern players.

Hope he gets the nod. 

Edit: Not sure why I created a new thread for this when I'd already 'liked' an earlier thread announcing the good news.. :huh:

Probably my favourite player and seems like a terrific bloke off the field. To think where he was even 4 years ago is simply astounding and a credit to his maturity and determination. Well done Jetts and I hope he wins the award.

    VOTES: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    Last week Captain Max Gawn consolidated his lead over reigning champion Christian Petracca in the Demonland Player of the Year Award. Steven May, Alex Neal-Bullen & Jake Lever make up the Top 5. Your votes for the loss against the Blues. 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1.

    POSTGAME: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    Many warned that this was a danger game and the Demons were totally outclassed all game by a young Eagles team at Optus Stadium in Perth as they were defeated by 35 points.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    It's Game Day and the Demons have returned to the site of their drought breaking Premiership to take on the West Coast Eagles in what could very well be a danger game for Narrm at Optus Stadium. A win and a percentage boost will keep the Dees in top four contention whilst a loss will cast doubt on the Dees flag credentials and bring them back to the pack fighting for a spot in the 8 as we fast approach the halfway point of the season.

    WARNING by William from Waalitj

    As a long term resident of Waalitj Marawar, I am moved to warn my fellow Narrm fans that a  danger game awaits. The locals are no longer the easybeats who stumbled, fumbled and bumbled their way to the good fortune of gathering the number one draft pick and a generational player in Harley Reid last year. They are definitely better than they were then.   Young Harley has already proven his worth with some stellar performances for a first year kid playing among men. He’s taken hangers, k

    OVER YET? by KC from Casey

    The Friday evening rush hour clash of two of the VFL’s 2024 minnows, Carlton and the Casey Demons was excruciatingly painful to watch, even if it was for the most part a close encounter. I suppose that since the game had to produce a result (a tie would have done the game some justice), the four points that went to Casey with the win, were fully justified because they went to the best team. In that respect, my opinion is based on the fact that the Blues were a lopsided combination that had

    CENTIMETRES by Whispering Jack

    Our game is one where the result is often decided by centimetres; the touch of a fingernail, a split-second decision made by a player or official, the angle of vision or the random movement of an oblong ball in flight or in its bounce and trajectory. There is one habit that Melbourne seems to have developed of late in its games against Carlton which is that the Demons keep finding themselves on the wrong end of the stick in terms of the fine line in close games at times when centimetres mak
