My earliest memory is…Family lunch, aged 3. My sister sitting in a high chair and my grandfather asking mum and dad, “ Where did Sharon get that sausage from”. ?!!
My earliest football memory is…Sitting on my dads shoulders at the Punt Road End and seeing Ronnie Branton chop off a pass in the dying seconds, to hold out Essendon and nail a 3 point win. It was a lovely blue sky and I was a Tiger forever.
At school I…Walked out of grade 5 Catholic school, with the Mother Superior chasing me and yelling,“come back you pagan, you will burn in hell”. I went to State school and learnt that there were such things as dinosaurs and history.
My mother and father always told me…The Communist’s want to kill us all. Unions are bad. Vote Liberal or D.L.P.
I wish I had…Learnt how wrong they were, much earlier.
I wish I hadn’t…Ever been so fooled as to have, once, voted Liberal.
My most humiliating moment was…1972 …the Paris end of Collins St…Proudly mounting my gleaming new water cooled steed, in front of an awe struck crowd, kicking her into life and then putting my full face helmut on ….backwards!
My happiest moment was…Love and the birth of my daughters. Great Richmond victory’s, with the true believers at the Punt road end. Standing on the M.U.A. picket line, arms linked with thousands of pensioners, migrants and working people and knowing the strength of Union solidarity, if only it were unleashed from the chains of Labor. We had played Collingwood the night before and a large number of that crowd had come to join us…Tiger’s out numbered them 2 to 1.

It’s not fashionable but I love…Truth before self, and internationalist solidarity.
What I don’t find amusing is…Those who spread fear and bigotry, racism, Labor party apologist’s, nationalism and latte sipping lefty yuppies, who think the Greens are a good thing. ( They give coffee a bad name )
I’m always being asked…Why bother?
If I were an animal I’d be…Tearing Howard, Bush, Beasley and Blair to shreds.
If I had an open ticket I’d be holiday in…Cuba, before everything is gone. (Though hopefully we will wake from our gorge fest and help take these places to where they really want to be.)
My favourite photograph or piece of art is…Vietnamese tank rolling through the gates of the U.S Embassy. “The Scream” by Edvard Munch and a lot of Vincent Van Gough.
My favourite quote is…“ Not that many people think outside of the box and even fewer realize, that there is a box.”. Albert Einstein.

I wish I hadn’t…Pranged my dear little 84 Ford Laser…since then it’s hated me because I ruined its bumper…
My most humiliating moment was…Hugging my girlfriend in grade 2 (whirlwind romance) with the rest of the school watching (it was a small school…)

My earliest memory is…Being lifted up to see the foot thick snow when we lived at Dean near Ballarat, I was 18 months old
My earliest football memory is…Travelling
to the G in dads best mate and fellow tiger Brian's brand new Mercedes
(he owned the dealership so he had a new one every few weeks), and
eating the cheese sandwiches dad brought, then trying to look hungry so
Brian would buy us pies, chokitos and hot dogs and creamy soda, it
worked every time. For some reason we never drove to the footy in dads
kombi, weird. Kicking footy under the old southern stand. KB.
My most humiliating moment...Playing
on Dale Lewis in an under 14s match. I thought I was gunna be Woody
until that moment. Also vomitting at work after a big night while my
boss was explaining the next job.
