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.

    HEAVEN OR HELL by The Oracle

    Clashes between Melbourne and St Kilda are often described as battles between the forces of heaven and hell. However, based on recent performances, it’s hard to get excited about the forthcoming match between these two sides. It would be fair to say that, at the moment, both of these teams are in the doldrums. The Demons have become the competition’s slow starters while the Saints are not only slow to begin, they’re not doing much of a job finishing off their games either. About the only th

    THE BLOW by Whispering Jack

    Narrm’s finals prospects took a crushing blow after the team’s insipid performance at Optus Stadium against a confident Waaljit Marawar in the first of its Doug Nicholls Round outings for 2024.  I use the description “crushing blow” advisedly because, although the season is not yet at it’s halfway mark, the Demons have now failed abysmally in two of their games against teams currently occupying bottom eight places on the ladder.  The manner in which these losing games were played out w

    HALF FULL by KC from Casey

    It was a case of the Casey Demons going into a game with a glass half full in their match up against the Brisbane Lions at Casey Fields on Saturday. As the list of injured and unavailable AFL and VFL listed players continues to grow and with Melbourne taking all three emergencies to Perth for the weekend on a “just in case” basis, its little brother was always destined to struggle. Casey was left with only eight AFL listed players from who to select their team but only two - an out-of-form

    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
