Well known and famous Tiger supporters
« on: March 01, 2006, 03:35:01 AM »
With Ricky Ponting now the Roos number 1 ticket holder and even doing their membership ads, which high-profile people barrack or at least claim to barrack for the Tiges?

I was scanning the Herald-Sun yesterday on the web and noticed one Andrew Bolt  :P, (far) right-wing columnist, suggest he was a Tigers supporter.

Before i roll off some well known ones, I've had a fight about this one before with Fish - and if someone can settle the argument would be good, because i'm still wondering about it lol.

Jennifer Byrne, i believe, is a Richmond supporter, and I always thought she was the grand daughter of former Victorian Governor Sir Rohan Delacombe.  Fish says i'm wrong and says she's the grand daughter of Robert Menzies.

Anyone know?

Others:

Greg Norman
Tiger Woods
John Newcombe
Livinia Nixon (although she supported Melbourne there for a while)
Mick Malloy
Sir Rohan Delacombe  ;)
Lindsay Thompson
Bernie Finn  :rollin
Russell Crowe
Dawn Fraser I think was a member of Hafey's Ambush
Steve Price

Thanks Mopsy, but until i see some hard facts, i'm going with Delacombe lol
When Fish and I were having this argument, i had to go to the emergency part of Monash Medical Centre, and lo and behold the doctor treating my dad at the time was Robert Menzies' grandson.  I was so tempted to ask him, but i restrained myself lol.

Err, who is Kenneth Watts?

Sir Dallas Brooks is a former No. 1 ticket holder I've just researched, but still can't find a Byrne connection.

Damn you Mopsy Byrne.  ;D

Delacombe, Brooks or Menzies? :-\ I always thought it was Bob. Ah well, she's definitely married to Andrew Denton (an attempt at diversion on the slim chance I'm wrong).

ps. I'm not keen on humble pie. Have you got apple?
