Sean Simpson

goFooty.LiveTeam

Sean brings some real game experience to the broadcasting team having played 7 games for St Kilda and 114 for his beloved Geelong between 1988 and 1998, including the 1992 AFL Grand Final against West Coast. Sean (pictured here in his playing days) was the 896th player to represent the Cats, landing between Stephen Hooper and Jamie Lamb on the all-time list of players and 176 places above his son, Sam, who proudly runs around in the same number 37 jumper that his dad made famous.

Sean will provide a unique perspective to the broadcasts given that he is not only a student of the game but also a past player and the parent of a current one. Sean has been a regular contributor to the Sportsfix program on 94.7FM The Pulse providing commentary about the AFL and VFL.
