Look like a bunch of South Sydney supporters hanging out at Redfern Oval......
If you disagree with a fanatic, they will automatically assume you are a competing flavor of fanatic.

Cult hero to grace EKFL

Relton Roberts is set to make his East Kimberley Football League debut on Friday night.

The former Richmond cult hero, who once got in trouble for eating a hamburger before a VFL match, has been cleared to Waringarri ahead of their match against Kununurra.

Roberts has featured in several leagues in country Victoria and the Northern Territory since quitting the Tigers due to homesickness.

The 32-year-old, who made two AFL appearances for Richmond in 2010, most recently played for Wanderers in the NTFL.

However, the man they call the Barunga Bullet, Relton Roberts, struck back quickly for the Crows.

Roberts, who comes from the Northern Territory and played two games for the Richmond Tigers, said he decided to play because he was in the area and some of his mates had been involved in the Crows club.

He said he hadnít played any football for a couple of months and this would be a one-off appearance for the Crows.

Roberts kicked four goals on the night including three off-deep kicks in the first quarter which helped the Crows get to a 5.2 (32) to 2.0 (12) start.
