Judd caught moonlighting

Carlton champ Chris Judd has been working extra jobs outside of his football career. DGES FOOTYTALK has discovered that Judd is also staring in movies to help pay the bills. So far, Judd has picked up the plumb roles as Lord Voldemort in the Harry Potter movies and also the evil Dr Hannibal Lecter.

You never know, we may see Judd feature at this year’s Brownlow and at the Oscars…

Watch this space.

Adam Gray (alias A Gray Superstar) – Bad Footy Card circa 2005 Strathmore Under 12

Gray is captured here, running away from the camera man. Rumour has it that Gray siezed the opportunity while all the other kids were distracted by the Footy Card Photographer Bloke. Gray grabbed the footy, ran the length of the field and booted the goal.

AFL and the Cancer Awareness Cause



A rant by Hooter

Funny how the league allow those scum bucket Blue baggers to wear a yellow jumper for cancer awareness, yet for the past 3-4 years have deprived Essendon from wearing yellow armbands to support a player suffering from cancer…now the parasites at the league are “100% behind” the cause and have a Cancer Awareness match between Essendon & Melbourne and allow armbands, no money to be made from armbands is there…….Demetriou and Anderson are in the same league as Hutchison…parasitic turds out to line their own nests…what the hell was Adrian Anderson before he bummed his way into this job…fark off league administrators…you sh1t me!!!!

FURC coaches


Michael Voss is currently the only FURC (Red head) coach in the AFL. It led me to thinking of previous FURC coaches of our great game and who may have been our most recent before Voss.

Your quiz for the week is to send me your list of FURC AFL coaches.
