Surprised there isn't a thread on this (that I could find - feel free to merge if so).

Who do football journalists / media figures support?

Most ex players are pretty obvious, but otherwise...

Paul Amy - Bulldogs
Damian Barrett - North Melbourne

Fair enough... anybody got a clue on basil?

I checked his wiki, no mention. (also it's funny, you can always tell who's written their own wiki).

Not surprised to learn that Sandy supports St. Kilda. I've noticed that he gets pretty excited calling their games and he has a liking for Jack Steven
