The Almanackers: N is for Nadel

Dave Nadel is one of the grand old men of Australian radicalism, Australian sports history and the Collingwood push. In his student days he spent time at Victoria Park and in the Taringa Commune in Brisbane (with Brian Laver).

He is a passionate Floreat Pica contributor and Almanac writer.

He used to wonder about Eddie, but I’m not sure he does any more.

He is an asset to the Almanac side.


Other Ns include:

Richard Naco, Cat and former GWS cheer squadder.

Journalism student Al Najmeddine.

Journalist Ken Nguyen, Cat fan.

Kanga Matthew Naqvi.

Former political staffer and Crib Point and Murray Bridge footballer Jared Newton.

Jake Wandering Norton, key member of the Almanac golf team.
