Post by bayman on Mon Oct 13, 2014 9:40 pm

i noticed today that former Norwood, Collingwood & sometimes Plympton runner for his sons team is in the running to be mayor of Holdfast Bay, so who has played league football in any state & gone into any of the three levels of politics


the obvious one that have gone into politics is
Justin Madden

i suppose we may as well include Phil Cleary (VFA)

any others ?

i'm surprised Chambo hasn't come up with Gil Langley, his sporting achievements are outstanding, i have no idea about his achievements in politics

Daryl Doc Baldock arguably the greatest St kilda player ever
He was in politics , but resigned to coach St Kilda
Not a great career move !
