Teasdale was noted for his tough, uncompromising play and in 1964 saw this almost cost him his life – as his head clashed with that of North teammate Ken Dean leaving him in a serious condition in St. Vincent's Hospital. Midway through that same year, Teasdale came back to play for North, taking over the captaincy in the absence of injured skipper Allen Aylett.
The 1965 season saw Teasdale don a headguard (helmet) due to medical advice and this produced his best season yet – tying for the Brownlow Medal with Ian Stewart. Although he originally lost on countback, he was later awarded a retrospective medal.
His VFL career ended in 1967 and he later moved to Woodville Football Club, where he was captain-coach from 1968-70, and non-playing coach in 1971. Later he coached West Torrens Football Club in 1975-76. He is now working part-time at Urangan Bowls Club and living in Hervey Bay, Queensland.
