Come and join Ross for a cocktail style lunch to hear from passionate AFL supporters who will read their own ‘Love Letter to Football’ sharing their personal relationship and experiences with the great game and the teams they support.

TIM BLACKWELL is co-host of the very excellent Nova drive program Kate Tim and Joel. He plies his trade from what (only) Melburnians refer to as ‘the Harbour City’, which is his vantage point to keep a passionate eye and ear on his beloved Hawks.

IAN COVER, or as he is affectionately known on the 3AW breakfast programme ‘The Oracle of Barwon Heads’ is a founding member of the wonderful Coodabeens champion. He has a thorough GPS on where the soul of Australian Rules football is. And where the laughs are at. He barracks for Geelong, “The greatest team of all”.

ALICIA LOXLEY. Multi-talented multi-faceted multiplatform media identity. Alicia initially worked on ABC radio before deciding to join the media. Not only currently performing many roles on the 9 network she is also a fill in presenter on 3AW. Mad St. Kilda.

If Australian Football was in human form BOB MURPHY would be its heart. And brains. A television show based on his life would be called ‘Everybody loves Bob’. Loyal and selfless as they come, Bob started his career for the Dogs as a skinny 18 year old and finished up 17 years later as a skinny 35 year old.

JACQUI REED has established herself as one of Melbourne’s most versatile and respected media performers over the past decade. An accomplished journalist, host and producer, Jacqui represents the next generation of the sports media, appearing on 3AW Football and across a number of different products on television. I’m also reliably informed that there’s probably only one thing she loves more than a win by her beloved Bombers, and that’s an ice-cold UDL.
