Ahead of yesterday’s Big Freeze 2, Neale Daniher took the opportunity to speak with the Melbourne playing group.
The former Demons coach focused his speech about the importance of opportunity and not taking things for granted.
"I took things for granted. When you are young blokes you take things for granted. And when they are taken away from you do value them a lot more," Neale says.

"With MND everyday something is taken away from you, until eventually you can’t breath, you can’t speak, you can’t move, you can’t swallow and that will happen to me."
"I reflect the simple things I cannot do now. Like click my fingers, I’ll get over it eventually, I’ll get over that but once they are gone they are gone."
"Your football career is the same and whatever opportunities you have to take them. You’ve to take them. It goes quick."
"Life gives you opportunity. It doesn’t ever say it will be fair."
