“What is braveness for one participant could possibly be totally different for an additional. If you walked into the room midway by means of the second (quarter) you’d have thought it was a nasty corky, as a result of when he ran, he went flat out. You wouldn’t have recognized he was injured when he truly went, it was when he stopped and limped again to the aim sq. is when he appeared in hassle.
“I feel he was unbelievable however what’s ache for one bloke is probably not that a lot for an additional.”
Dangerfield’s former Geelong teammate Jimmy Bartel says he by no means observed the Moggs Creek native exaggerating accidents when the 2 performed collectively.
“He genuinely goes hard, all the time flat out,” Bartel stated on RSN. “He does get battered round a bit due to the best way he performs.
“I by no means questioned (final yr) whether or not he was harm or not.
“He acquired collected within the ribs earlier this yr, you might forgive him for staying down a bit couldn’t you?
“Kane should have some excellent inside information then from the Crows, if he’s gone with that.”
Dangerfield was superb! What a recreation. What a champion! Congrats @LHodge15 on 300 video games. An absolute warrior.

It’ll be fairly boring in case you’re all simply constructive and is it truthful to say you don’t essentially see the constructive issues which are stated about you and your membership, and also you simply concentrate on damaging issues which all gamers do once they’re enjoying?
Walker: Yeah I all the time take a look at the constructive issues, fairly glass half full, Kane. So (I) wish to hold it that approach.
When requested by Footy Show panellist Nathan Brown if there was any probability of a reconciliation between the 2, Walker didn’t give a solution, main Billy Brownless to emphatically declare: “That’s a no!”
