DGES WORLD FAMOUS FOOTY TIPPING COMP tipster Bruce Clarke of team ‘PEAR’ was recently spotted being very friendly, arm in arm with NRL Melbourne Storm star Cameron Smith at a function at Crown Casino.
Other notable celebrities were also spotted at the same shindig…
What kind of a party was this???
DGES WORLD FAMOUS FOOTY TIPPING COMP tipstress, THE JUDESTER saw former footy star and Bali Bombing survivor, Jason McCartney.
This is an exceptional Famous Face get from THE JUDESTER, especially since McCartney was spotted outside of his familiar surroundings. A shoe and bag repair shop in Leake St, Essendon, Victoria, Australia is not where you would expect to find a former footy star and Bali Bombing survivor.
To spot a famous face in surroundings other than their workplace or sporting arena awards bonus points to the Famous Face Finder.
Well done Judester.
Episode 2 of the DGES WORLD FAMOUS FOOTY TIPPING COMP’s segment, ‘FAMOUS FACE’ features a handful of our tipsters from the DGES WORLD FAMOUS FOOTY TIPPING COMP.
DGES WORLD FAMOUS FOOTY TIPPING COMP tipster, STIV was watching an obscure channel on Foxtel the other night when he came across a replay of a famous Rugby Union match from the past…11th August 2001 to be exact.
The famous match involved a New Zealand v Australia Bledisloe Cup contest at ‘THE HOUSE OF PAIN’, Carrisbrook, Dunedin -New Zealand (woo err woo).
Tipsmaster’s note: I wasn’t sure how to spell ‘woo err woo’, the sarcastic,supposedly scared type moment I was looking for which is meant to be synonymous with The House of Pain – please forgive me, I’m sure you all know what I mean.
Stiva was watching the replay of this famous contest (where the Aussies nailed the Kiwi’s arses at the House of Pain ). Suddenly the camera flashed on the sea of gold Wallaby guenseys in the crowd, only to find DGES WORLD FAMOUS FOOTY TIPPING COMP tipsters, Stiva, Barnsey, Legend, Pear, Mooseboy and Col, supporting the Wallabies, singing songs and generally being very sensible Wallaby supporters on a rugby tour of New Zealand.
DGES WORLD FAMOUS FOOTY TIPPING COMP tipster AAA AUSSIE MAL was also amongst the group, as was AUSSIE VIC, both supporting the ill fated All Blacks.
The ‘Where’s Wally’ contest in the crowd pic is to find the secret celebrity guest star, Richard Hadlee’s niece. Yes folks, the niece of Kiwi test cricket star (and wanker), Richard Hadlee happened to be in the crowd just near us and she took a little offence at being reminded that her famous uncle is indeed a wanker.

I said G’day to former Essendon star, Alan (Pills) Ezard at the footy on Friday night.
So I’ve got that going for me.
Let us at DGES FOOTYTALK know if you’ve had a brush with fame.
The DGES WORLD FAMOUS FOOTY TIPPING COMP had an encounter with a former AFL superstar last weekend.
Your tipsmaster was invited to a fundraiser ball for the Condon family.
The Condons are a local family who are heavily involved in the Strathmore Football and Cricket Club and they are great community members.
Liz Condon, wife of Wayne and mother of 12 year old Jack and 10 year old Tom, lost her two year battle with cancer earlier this year.
The fundraiser ball in Liz’ memory was a great night and a who’s-who of the sporting world were in attendance. Wayne Condon has been involved behind the scenes with many AFL clubs, hence – guests at the ball included Dale Weightman, Neil Daniher, Dean Bailey, Simon Atkins (and several other Poor ol’ Footscray players whom I recognised but couldn’t name and couldn’t give a stuff about…you know how much I love poor ol’ Footscray), Mathew (Spider) Burton, Neil Jordon, Col Gray…just to name a few.
There was heaps of sporting memorabilia auctioned and many raffles on the night to raise money for the cause.
DGES donated a tool box for one of the raffles and I’m thrilled to announce that the tool box prize was won by no other than AFL Freo and North “legend”, Spider Burton!
Spider was no doubt the W.T.H (World’s Tallest Human) in the room and after consulting him about the W.T.T.B (World’s Tallest Tool Box), he was quite looking forward to attempting to lie down in it…

Also spotted this week, Jason ‘Windowlicker’ Winderlich talking to Scott ‘Camp-oh’ Camporeale in the aftermath of the Barry Hall incident.
Apparently the window-licker was interviewed by Zoo magazine the previous week and asked whether he would prefer to get a leg injury, or be punched in the face by Barry Hall. He chose to take the Hall punch. Not a very smart choice, in hindsight…
