I am not superficial, all the time

The online site Gay Footy has been running a knockout competition. for the hottest player football player. I think this is the fourth round, the final. From 48 AFL players, we are now down to a single choice from three. I am having trouble deciding. Of course not being so shallow that I would just judge them on one photo, I looked at other online photos elsewhere. I have ruled out the middle one, David Zaharakis.

That leaves two to choose from. Initially I was inclined to the first, Shaun Hampson with his very attractive blue eyes, which may well be coloured contacts,  but after looking at some online photos of the last, Brett Deledio, I am torn (Victor and Lord Sedgwick, keep your fingers still). Perhaps I should look at their biographies. Which one has the best brain? But then I wasn't really thinking about their brains. Whaddya reckon guys and gals, mesdames and monsieurs, blokes and sheilas? Who should I go for?

  1. That doesn't look like Deledio.

    He was voted Best on the Ground last night, but that was to do with football.

  2. I hear the femmes are crazy about Rance, also a Richmond player.

    I'd like to have been that lucky but it would have meant a short life.

  3. So I'm presuming the eponymous Jarryd Roughhead didn't make the cut.

  4. How about their education? Is there a handsome footballer who can also string a sentence together sensibly? There used to be a Melbourne player who looked great, spoke fluently AND could sing very well :)

  5. Minson (Bulldogs) can talk beyond monosyllables.

    Via Wikipedia:- Off the field, Minson is known for his intelligence and multi-faceted abilities - he is an excellent saxophonist, speaks fluent German and is currently studying civil engineering at the University of Melbourne.He is also heavily involved with the charity Red Dust, which operates sporting and lifestyle clinics in remote aboriginal communities and, more recently, in very poor areas of India.

  6. Knowing what Lord Sedgwick has told us, a sax-ophonist might be the go: Someone who is coordinated enough to blow and push buttons at the same time. Good luck, though, he sounds mighty busy.

  7. RH, Rance was in the comp but went out in the last round. Quite nice.

    LS, he did not. Yuk.

    Hels, any speaking proficiency they may have gets hidden behind football speak. And who might be said footballer, pray tell?

    LS, what an amazing bloke. What a pity about the 'mother' business. Now if were looking for brains, he would be it, but I'm not and he otherwise doesn't cut the condiment.

    FC, you are wicked.....but then you might be onto something there.

    Feast your eyes on the multi-talented Russell Robertson

  9. Hels, I am truly amazed I know nothing of him. I do remember Geisha though. He is rather handsome. Off to You Tube now.

  10. Look at those amazing blue eyes! My grandchildren have eyes that colour.
    I'll have to go back and have another look.

  11. River, I really think they are fake. Coloured contacts. Pretty lad though, hey.

  12. Why do you think his eye colour is fake Andrew, he is bloomin' gorgeous (Hampson that is, just to clarify!) and definitely the one for moi..oh hang on we were deciding for you right!!

  13. 'Who has the best brain'

    What's a brain? ��

    The bottom fellow knows how to use his tongue.

    The middle fellow can open his mouth wide.

    The top fellow...well....he's just handsome.

    Gee, it's a tough choice.

  14. AFL players are from every walk of life. There's no professors because they're generally too old. It seems strange but isn't that American students are offered (and accept) scholarships to university based on their sporting ability, and tough sports have always been part of the England's private school curriculum. "Waterloo was won on the playing fields of Eton."

    I'm very aware of the prejudice self-described "intellectuals" have toward those who excel at sport. Grow up you snobs, Percy Cerutty was a philosopher don't you know and Doctor Bannister broke the four-minute mile.

    You'll compare sport to the arts, they're different but require the exact same standards: discipline, endurance, dedication. And TALENT!

  15. That's the choice?
    I'd rather go out with the football or RH.

  16. Nr 1, he eats Mars, so he has more energy!?

  17. The brilliance of the blue Grace. I'd be happy if they were his real colour, but I am happy if that was his choice of coloured contacts. Your choice.

    Victor, let's face. We'd be happy with any of them.

    RH, on average I would suggest that generally AFL players are not the brightest sparks in the bonfire. Of course there will be exceptions.

    Jahteh, really? I reckon RH lusts after you. He'd have your knickers off quick smart.

    Peter, I do like a man with stamina. Good thinking.

  18. You're talking nonsense Andrew. But I suppose you include aboriginal players as well? Boy, that would get you shipwrecked. Say it in Chapel Street, the IQ along there is about 47. Footy players are a fair sample of the populace, if anything the professions are overrepresented. You don't like AFL for your own reasons, whatever they are. Culture it ain't, but how intelligent is culture, Mozart was an idiot who could write music.

  19. Jahteh is worthy of more respect than the lot of us put together.

  20. RH, I may be uninterested in AFL but I don't ever recall saying I dislike it.

  21. Mmmm, the top one. But Zaha is good too, even if they've played so badly this last half of the season.

  22. Not about the game Fen. He could bad a dog of a player and still win.

  23. As a long time Collingwood tragic this guy fills me with black and white pride. And he's an elegant gazelle on the field.

  24. Not half shabby and appears to have a brain too. Does he dress well, and then I could say, hat trick.
