I love these threads. Though I’ve always wondered how hard it’d be to completely drop your love for a club if you were drafted by an opposition club. Bontempelli for example is a Richmond fan. How much do you think them winning the flag in 2017 excited him if at all?

KB? I thought he hates us, or was that before he became a Tiger?


Definitely supported Footscray before he played for Richmond.

I’ve actually noticed some pro Bulldogs sentiment from him over the years in the media ie commentary, radio etc

I can't remember who but there was a Footscray supporting Essendon player who grew up on the same street as the Essendon supporting Scott West, albeit on the opposite side of the road.

Scott West's side of the road had him zoned to Footscray and Footscray supporter's side of the road had him zoned to Essendon.

Who did/does Leigh Montagna support?

I have noticed a few times this season he has referred to the Dogs in a positive way. The other night he singled out Bailey Smith as a sleeper.
Earlier in the season I think he picked the dogs as this years surprise packet.

Merv Hughes (only include him as he won the 'longest kick competition' at a family day in the 80s. Doug Hawkins was one of the participants)
