He has since moved into the media and talks exclusively with the Sarge here.

2) Are you into your fantasy footy? If so, what’s your team name and who do you have in your team?
Don't do fantasy footy anymore. No time!!
3) Part of the amazing North side of the 90’s, how do you think the Roos will go this year and in the years to come?
Great win by North Melbourne v Geelong. Look to be building, not so reliant on Harvey & Wells, next generation are stepping up. Definitely top 8 (6-8). Want club to succeed.
4) Later with Syd, they just seem to be the team that is consistent in every season. What do they need to do to crack the Top 4?
Swans need Reid, Goodes to kick 40 gls each, win every game in Syd & win another 6 on the road. Even team but can't afford drop off.
5) What do you think about this Buckley and Malthouse debacle? Is Mick damaging his legacy at Collingwood?
Buckley has handled it incredibly well. Mick is in the media & is paid to comment. I would prefer he give the club room to breathe under Buckley before critiquing them.
6) What interested you to work in the media? Was coaching an option? Quite interesting because of your playing background. But now we’ve seen many players follow your path by joining the media.
I wasn't integrated in coaching but wanted to stay involved so media was the obvious choice. Results don't determine my week in the media whereas in coaching it does.
7) What do you recommend for anyone wanting to get into the media?
Whether its media or another interest you must prepare. The more effort you put in the more rewards you reap. Be passionate & persistent and follow your dreams.
8) Wayne Carey is sticking by his story. You know him very well, he's not one to make stories?
Only take Duck on his word. Have to be careful on such issues because of potential fallout. If that's what he's standing by then more for him.
