Brisbane’s Lachie Neale has taken a swipe at AFL expert commentator David King in a recent social media post, wrapping up the year with a mix of personal and team-related photos on Instagram. One particular image included a screenshot of critical remarks made by King during the season, where he labeled Neale as the ‘284th ranked midfielder.’

King had commented on Neale’s performance, citing statistics like his average disposals, score involvements, and clearances over a four-week period. Despite the seemingly innocent nature of Neale’s overall post, it was evident that he hadn’t forgotten King’s harsh assessment.

Undeterred by the criticism, Neale had a stellar second half of the season, securing his second Brownlow Medal and playing a key role in Brisbane’s journey to the grand final against Collingwood. His social media followers found the post amusing, and many commented on it, with golf star Min Woo Lee humorously suggesting Neale might be ranked 283rd.

The banter continued in the comments, with followers jokingly encouraging Neale to improve his Brownlow game and referencing the 284th ranking. Despite the light-hearted responses, Neale, who was left stunned after winning his second Brownlow in four seasons, expressed that the achievement hadn’t fully sunk in yet and admitted feeling rattled by the unexpected honor.
