AFL 2020: Player hub requests, carpenter, nanny, Brain Taylor, Brendan Fevola comments


Former AFL goalkickers Brendan Fevola and Brian Taylor have lashed the small number of players that have lacked perspective while in hubs, urging them to think of those less fortunate in tough times.

Several weird and wacky requests, as well as some strange bills sent to AFL headquarters for reimbursement on Coles orders, by players were revealed last week. One included a player inquiring whether their puppy could be brought into a hub, while another request was reportedly made for carpenters to alter apartments.

League chief executive Gillon McLachlan confirmed to 3AW there’d been some “outlier requests” the AFL had “been unable to fulfil”, but added he was “grateful” that most of the players and their families had settled into hub life well.
