West Adelaide have announced that their award for the club's Best and Fairest will now be known as:

THE NEIL KERLEY MEDAL

Would South mind if we nicknamed it the Knuckles  Cup

Wasn't it the Steve Hamra Medal, previously?

Why the change?

Yes, named after the late long-serving Mayor of West Torrens, a wonderful West supporter.

Before that, I think it was the Trabilsie Medal, for Feres Trabilsie, a well known Adelaide hairdresser at that time.

The Hamra family and the club's Board felt it was time to honour a club great and Neil was a unanimous and popular choice.

Think that is a great idea! - I know he coached South to the flag, yet I have always associated him with West Adelaide, he is a Westies man through and through.

I think it was awarded to Port Adelaide for chewing through $11million of SANFL money without having to repay it.

I hope it doesn't take as long to get over as the Ravesi drama has clearly taken for you.

Get over it? Lol...I grew up with Ravioli around my house, he was an excellent supplier of fire works back in the day! "The Ravesi Drama"...? Again, lol, it had zero to do with me. Couldn't care less about it.

Lighten up mate. Things a bit tense down at City Mazda?

Mate Port putting their hands out for $11million had nothing to do with me either, but I'm expected to 'get over it'. Don't think I'm the one who needs to do the lightening up here, bit of banter is all I thought it was.
