Bad Sporting Photos


Following on from our highly successful  segment of yesteryear, ‘BAD FOOTY CARDS’ , we have a brand new segment for you all to enjoy in DGES FOOTY TALK.

Yes folks. I introduce to you ‘BAD SPORTING PHOTOS’

You are encouraged to join in this competition with your own BAD SPORTING PHOTOS contributions – I don’t care which sport you choose, I don’t care which photo you send me (although censorship may prevent some of those Mud Wrestling pics you all have lovingly saved in the depths of your eye phone (sic) machine things…)

I’m going to start us off with a ripper photo I found on the back cover of one of my old cricket books.

The book is titled ‘SPIN OUT’ by ASHLEY MALLETT.

Ashley Mallett is a highly regarded Australian off spin bowler for the Australian Cricket team of the late ’60s to late 70’s.

His cricket reputation however will never, EVER match his appalling fashion sense as is shown in our first edition of ‘BAD SPORTING PHOTOS;

I present to you Episode 1 of ‘BAD SPORTING PHOTOS’




In case you missed the features, Mallett in this BAD SPORTING PHOTO is supporting a bad ’70’s Mullet (lovingly known as ‘THE MALLETT MULLETT’), a Happy Hammond sports coat and a pipe.

Ashley Mallett…a worthy first contestent in the inaugural edition of the DGES FOOTY TALK ‘BAD SPORTING PHOTOS’.

Please send me your own contributions.

DON SCOTT suffers Wee & Poo fashion syndrome illness.




We all remember the tough guy of the 70’s and 80’s, Hawthorn’s rugged captain, Don Scott. Scott was tough, he was brutal, he had pointy elbows and a chin you wanted to whack if you could run away fast enough.

Understandably when Don Scott retired, he like many of his Hawthorn team mates were disorientated and confused with their fashion sense and struggled to fit back in to mainstream society after disrobing the Wee & Poo Hawthorn colours and the WYNVALE skivvies.

As seen here Scott was so mentally scarred by the fashion disaster he had been adjorned with in his playing days, he reverted to a man-bag and cravat in his bid to be in vogue.

The passing of time has not cured Don Scott’s fashion ailment and dress sense disasters as was displayed on Mike Sheahan’s tv show ‘OPEN MIKE’ this week. One can only feel pity for those Hawthorn stars who are afflicted with a life time of distress and anguish, not knowing where their next outfit will lead them as they battle the illness of post career Wee & Poo fashion syndrome.

Scanlon just doesn’t look the same without Trevor Barker standing on his head, taking that spekkie.

BAD FOOTY CARDS – episode 12


BAD FOOTY CARDS – episode 12


Reg Gleeson played 128 games for South Melbourne, kicking 11 goals. Gleeson however had a secret passion. He always had a fascination for the fascist regimes of the 1940’s and he used to attend footy training to practice his goose step marching, as is seen here captured in the 12th episode of ‘Bad Footy Cards’.

After retiring from Footy, Gleeson became a John Cleese impersonator.

Website hit count



DGES FOOTYTALK – our premier website.

Bizarre really.

I was a bit puzzled to log on to DGES FOOTYTALK today, only to find that we had 48 hits to the site today alone. What could it be?..thought I. After all, I haven’t entered a ‘Bad Footy Card’ for a few days or any other intelligent post of such note for that matter.

I delved a little further and found that we had no less than 78 hits from people who had googled “Voldemort” in their search engine thing in the past 2 days and they hence ended up at DGES FOOTYTALK. (You may recall that DGES FOOTYTALK carried the scoop that Carlton star, Chris Judd was playing the part of Voldemort in the Harry Potter movies).


Coincidence?…you may ask… but it just so happens that the latest Harry Potter movie, “Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince” hit the screens this week and the world has been googling for more info on the hit Harry Potter movies. As luck would have it for those googlees, they have all now experienced the joys of the DGES WORLD FAMOUS FOOTY TIPPING COMP via DGES FOOTYTALK.

As they will all now know, The world is a far better place for experiencing the DGES WORLD FAMOUS FOOTY TIPPING COMP. (far more entertaining than Harry Potter)

P.S Congratulations and thank you to our loyal fans. Our website hit count has registered 7136 views in just over 12 months. Considering we are only active for 6 months of the year, our very own DGES WORLD FAMOUS FOOTY TIPPING COMP website is polling extremely well.

TIPSMASTER’s NOTE: For the benefit of our Poor ol’ Footscray supporters, this is the AFL Premiership Cup…

BAD FOOTY CARDS – episode 11

BAD FOOTY CARDS – episode 11



Elliot Perry was always known as a sensible basketballer. So sensible in fact that he always abided by the Boy Scouts ‘Be Prepared’ rule.

You see, Elliot Perry was concerned that the basketball arena was going to become flooded, hence – he wore his sensible goggles…or maybe he was going snorkling after the game…or maybe he was a welder in the off season…or maybe he just needed coke bottle glasses…or maybe he was worried about getting swine flu in the eye…or maybe he was just a dick.

Elliot Perry is our undisputed winner of BAD FOOTY CARDS – episode 11
