I've heard Alex Rance supported Sydney, Marc Murphy supported Norf and Pendlebury supported the Demons (how the Demons would love to have him now). I'm sure most players would've supported different clubs to who they were drafted to which is somewhat interesting.
Add whatever players you want, former or present.

The only three I know for certain that haven't been mentioned are that Andrew Swallow was a mad Eagles fan, Jarryd Roughead was a North fan and Buddy followed the Dees.

I have heard that James Hird actually did barrack for Essendon, whilst Doug Hawkins supported North Melbourne.

Former St. Kilda Under 19 player Shane Warne supported Hawthorn, and was a bit of a Dermot Brereton fan.

Matt Maguire supported Sydney and his favourite player was Tony Lockett.

Nick Vlastuin and Aaron Mullett supported Collingwood.

Likewise Dyson Heppell, Elliott Kavanagh, Jason Winderlich and Heath Hocking with Essendon.
