The problem is Shane left on bad terms and hates the dees, which is funny  because if the demons did not give him his chance he would never  have played a AFL game

No,

Shane has been back at the Dees since and has also reported that he and Neale Daniher are good friends now even though it soured after he was traded.

He was at the Lions (part time I think). Not sure what he's up to these days.

He hosts ‘Grandstand’ - a radio program on ABC Radio Perth and commentates games for the same station. He’s also the Senior Coach of North Fremantle.

How can anyone be bitter with Neale, and if they were that would melt away if you saw Neale.

Mate read what I just wrote, after the trade went down he was bitter towards Neale and the club in general at the end of 2002. Neale was coach at the time..

Time has healed and both are good friends now.

Interesting combination of roles/jobs. Wouldn't be many senior coaches of similar level leagues also taking on such a high profile media role.

What's he like as a commentator?

Keep an eye out for this son of a gun. Made his under 18's WAFL Colts debut a couple of weeks ago as a 16 year old which is a fantastic effort.

Also in the under 16 State WA Academy squad.

 

Lurve ur work Daz!! Yep agree!

That's one way of looking at it. They basically did the dirty on a very talented and loyal player. Tell me how many Demons - apart from Moore and Wilson, both imports - have won a Brownlow. Ok, there's the great Jimma, who else?

I actually haven’t heard him commentate but when I catch his radio program I do enjoy listening to him. He’s straight down the line and doesn’t dramatise situations ala Hagdorn and others from over here.

I think things may have mellowed over time.  I remember attending a QB match several years ago where they honoured Woey with a pre-game lap.  Was supposedly a combined thing, given he'd played for both clubs.  My memory aint what it used to be.  But, I'm pretty sure his son, who was also in the car, was wearing a Melb jumper...  In fact, I seem to recall TWO kids in the car, and BOTH wearing Melb jumpers, which I thought at the time was a bit of a tick for MFC and a dig at C'wood.  Anyone else remember that??

Be a great story but we shall wait and see, East Freo had quite a young Colts side this season but that's common for WAFL clubs to build sides over a 2 to 3 year period and to play a  lot of their younger squad members towards the end of the season.

North Freo had a win in A Grade Elimination final last weekend and come up against CBC Freo in a derby final this week.

Woey's a great bloke and great football person. He's built strong cultures wherever he's been and very professional in his approach. He's not short of job offers and think he may move on at seasons end 

And as others have said, time and exposure to the coaching side of the game have helped heal some wounds.

Corcoron was running the club at the time, not Neale, he made all the Mahoney decisions, he later drove Athletics Australia into the ground flogging off Olympic Park and handing a part of it to Ed, he then patched things up with Sheedy and Tird, and took them for a long walk down a short pier.

Agree Corcoran was the architect behind the salary cap disgrace as well.  Massive ego.  Should have stayed at the bummers

You are spot on. He definitely had his kids in Dees jumpers in a lap of honour at the G.

  • 11 months later...

I texted into SportFM a few months back when they were interviewing Shane and had them ask him how his boys were tracking and if father-son was an option with the Dees. He said only one of the boys is still playing, Taj, and is currently in Year 12 at Aquinas and playing for East Fremantle Colts too (not sure if this is the case still). Said that he isn't pushing his son in any particular direction, but has told him the kind of work needed to make it into an AFL list and the rest is up to him. Certainly didn't rule out the possibility of father-son but didn't mention anything specific about MFC recruiters keeping tabs on him or anything like that.

    DEES GIVE DOGS A BONE by George On The Outer

    First place versus second on the ladder promised to be a precursor to what can be expected in the coming finals race.  However, it was the Demons who faltered and gave the Bulldogs a bone to feed their hunger just weeks out from the end of the season. The win also sent the Dogs to the top of the ladder, a position they are unlikely to cede in the coming weeks, given their fixture. While Melbourne may now struggle to keep a spot in the top four with its draw and will likely depend on the res

    THE WORM WILL TURN by The Oracle

    When I was asked to preview this game, I wasn’t sure whether it was going to be played in Darwin, on the Gold Coast or the MCG. I had no idea as to the identity of Melbourne’s opponent. This would have made for one hell of an interesting match preview so I’m glad that the AFL managed to reorganize its fixture to enable a game … any game at all … to proceed in Round 19. We’ll worry about the Gold Coast Suns or whoever they put us up against when the weekend’s done and dusted and if and when

    DRAWN AND DEEFLATED by George on the Outer

    1st v 17th ... it would seem a sure one way contest between the Hawks and the Demons but it was not to be with the game finishing in a draw, the only positive being the Demons still retain their top spot on the ladder. Melbourne was taught a football lesson by Al Clarkson, who with limited resources, just instructed his players to scrap, fight and surge the ball forward.  It stifled the Melbourne free flowing style of play and denied them the opportunities they could normally expect.

    PINK RAIN by Whispering Jack

    There is no certainty about life under a pandemic. You wake up one morning without a care in the world; the sun’s shining and it’s a beautiful day. An hour later, everything’s up in the air, the entire state is on high alert and the apartment complex next door’s in lockdown. The simple decision you had to make about buying a ticket to the footy at the weekend suddenly might get put on the back burner. There are other things in life to prioritise and on top of that, they’re predicting rain for th

    COR BLIMEY by KC from Casey

    In years to come, the old timers will talk in wonderment about the “Avalon Avalanche” that hit Werribee’s Avalon Airport Oval on a mild winter’s afternoon at about ten minutes after the halfway mark of the game between the local Tigers and their cross town rivals, the Demons from Casey. At that moment in time, the game was poised as if on a knifepoint. Up until the main interval, it had been the visiting team which had maintained the lead from the start but it had struggled to entirely asse

    POWER FAILURE by George on the Outer

    South Australians should be well familiar with the damage that storms can do to the power supply.  But Port Power forgot those lessons on Thursday night football as they watched the Melbourne storm descend upon them from across the border and ruin their hopes of a top four placing. Just as equally, the win to the Demons cemented their spot in the top two and sent out the message that a team who had been going around in circles for the past couple of weeks, has in fact, turned into a cyclone

    CASEY SUFFER FIRST DEFEAT IN TWO YEARS

    The circumstances were a little unusual last Saturday night as KC from Casey was unavailable to report on the Casey Dees due to work commitments. On the ground things were somewhat unusual as well given that, although there was a game to be won on the night, preparations were also being made for the forthcoming Thursday night clash against Port Adelaide with Ben Brown rested for large slabs of the evening. It turned out perhaps, to be a stroke of genius for Melbourne with Brown making a strong c

    WEATHERING THE STORM by Mel Rundle

    The magic of Melbourne’s magnificent start to 2021 is beginning to wear off. In its past six matches it lost to three teams that were outside the eight, out of form —  teams which it had very little trouble bearing last year. This week, the temperature is turned up even higher with the hard fought spot in the top four at risk. The really ominous factor about the Demons’ upcoming Thursday night meeting with Port Adelaide this week is that it is due to take place at the very place where its dec

    FEE-FI-FO-FUM by George on the Outer

    “Fee-fi-fo-fum, without a Full Forward the Premiership can’t be won!” So said the GWS Giants, as they exposed Melbourne’s fatal deficiency with a nine point win at the MCG.  In past weeks Melbourne has been barely able to gloss over the lack of a serious target in front of goal, while others were able to contribute.  But in a near repeat of the game from the previous week, players running up the ground simply had no-one to kick the ball to, when all that was needed was that one tall target.

    MUCH ADO ABOUT EVERYTHING by Whispering Jack

    Let's face it. We Melbourne supporters are a demanding lot. Here we are with our team on top of the ladder with a record of 12 wins and 2 losses, a decent percentage and a fair run home for a team with finals credentials. We have a fit list with lots of in form players, many of who are in contention for All Australian and other high honours, the team’s playing with purpose and cohesion and its VFL affiliate is undefeated and going gangbusters.  Still, we're all walking around with conc

    HIATUS by KC from Casey

    After their five week Covid19 lockdown hiatus, the Casey Demons were fairly scratchy against Essendon VFL for the best part of 2½ quarters on Sunday afternoon but they finally settled down to motor away to a 48 point victory. With 20 AFL affiliated players on the team sheet, the Casey line up looked the strongest team ever put together since linking up with the Demons but the team struggled to score in the early going and managed its first goal to Aaron vandenBerg late in the first term.

    ESSENDONE & DUSTED by George on the Outer

    Essendon was the latest casualty as the Melbourne juggernaut rolled over the Bombers on its way to a 12th win for the 2021 Season.  It was a display of the difference in quality, coaching and system that defines those who will compete in finals and those that lie outside the top eight. Sadly, in these Covid times a mere 19,414 attended the game and the silence outside the ground before the match was eerie.  Normally, thronging crowds lining up at ticket gates and food carts were replaced by
