People. The lamb and rosemary pie from the Mt Barker Country Bakery is the best pastry encrusted love pocket that I’ve ever experienced. I used to travel to Albany for work a fair bit and used to go out of my way to stop and enjoy a momentary gravy induced escape from the four hours of travel. Used to be the highlight of my trip. 👌

Surely if you were a Brisbane supporter you should be just trying to move on from this topic as quick as possible ... sweep it under the rug so to speak.

If Brisbane Lions was such a great club and a blissful place to play football, the Neale rumours would have never got off the ground.
BL supporters now have a situation where one of their guns has most likely extorted more benefits, support, promises out of the club by threatening to leave ... that's not really something to celebrate in my eyes.
And it also sends a loud message to Freo fans as to why Neale left Freo to start with ... for him. He went to a place where he was earning more money and now that he has seen the best years of that rewarding contract he has put feelers out to see what he can command back at Freo.
I like Neale, but I'm not blind to the fact that he is looking after himself and always has done (and good on him, he's got every right to do that).

I was also a fan of Neale coming back to Freo, but I'm not at all disappointed given we have lost absolutely nothing with him staying at BL and there was always going to be a risk that he returned and then failed to produce due to his age (Freo have a tendancy to have these trades work against them).
And I now suspect that Brisbane were never going to let Neale go for anything less than a high 1st rounder, so a deal was not going to happen.
(But then what do I know, only a couple of days ago I said a deal had been done and this was theatre, only to be proven 100% wrong within 12 hours).
Me too
I thought it was pretty much a done deal .
Im far from knowledgeable in these matters , but I’d they have such a great list right now surely some future first picks would have been more beneficial to the longevity of their recruitment.
Particularly given the age of a lot of their stars .

I can vouch for this
Best bakery I’ve ever come across , Tassie had some good pies but these guys are on a winner .
Lucky enough to play footy there every month or so , the Braised Lamb Pie is amazing .

The AFL media are useless:


"The fact the Dockers allowed that anomaly to go unaddressed, coupled with Neale’s concerns surrounding a lack of professionalism at the club, led to the star midfielder’s exit once that contract was done."

He had a year to run with us you numpty.

Waiting for it to somehow become our fault.

Lachie breaks contract to go to Bears for more money = good!

Lachie proposes breaking contract to go to Freo for more money (and in the words of the Fast and the Furious, "fOr fAmiLy!") = bad!

So much eye rolling, they're starting to hurt

It's should stay open until the door closes on trade period.

If we end up moving players or picks on that leave us holding quite a bounty of early picks I wouldn't be surprised to see Brisbane pick up the phone.

Neale is absolutely fair game, go to town on the bloke!
But guys please don't stoop as low as to go at his wife, when they decided to go to Brisbane the world was a different place and her getting home to family and them getting to her was a simple plan ride away. Now it isn't, and there has been times where she has been alone for weeks on end with no family around her in lockdowns and with Lachie in quarantine and she's had no way to escape this. It would be an extremely daunting prospect to face after the past 2 seasons, that she may have to go through it again with a newborn baby.
