Last week we interviewed Bucky Senior in one of our most popular episodes. This week we back up fresh from Digital Parents Conference 2013.
I read with interest that Drew Petrie is poised to play footy instead of attend the birth of his second child. We know it’s about personal choice but any sports person thinking of playing on instead of attending the birth, I think you’re making a big mistake.
Let’s get something straight from the beginning of this article, Kid X barracks for Melbourne Footy Club. Yep, that’s right- Melbourne, the dees, the old red and blue. She does not barrack for Buddy, the tigers or the pies.
Here's something I wrote in December 2009. Some interesting predictions here, some of which were pretty damn close. Hope you like it.
So it's like this, I love the Collingwood Football Club whether we're riding the ladder from the top, or propping up 15, 16 or 17 other AFL teams. I've sat back and waved to a couple of delistings, watched the trade period and draft with interest, I've witnessed a new coaching structure with Bucks joining the club with the promise of taking over as senior coach in a couple of years, and read the odd article or two about the Pies getting their Jolly's and Ball's. I think I've absorbed enough now to put my observations and thoughts into words.
I'm here sharing a shiraz with Danny Bishop. A friend, father of two, a man who certainly knows his wines, and someone I consider to be a pioneer of social media in the Australian sports industry.
You've done a number of interesting things to earn a crust. From changing light globes in traffic lights to running Essendon Football Club's website and social media campaigns, to your current role with IMG. Being the most die-hard Bombers supporter I've ever met, your experience with Essendon must have been very special?
