On episode 54 I yarn with Arrernte man and AFL triple premiership winning legend, Darryl White. Darryl is best known for his illustrious AFL career kicking 165 goals for the Brisbane Lions/Bears from 1992 -2005 including an impressive 20 finals appearances over his career. He was a valued member of the Indigenous All Stars team on four occasions, inducted as a legend into the AFLNT Hall of Fame and named in the back pocket in the Brisbane Lions Team of the Century in 2015.
Darryl is retired from football and is now an employee and integral part of the Black Card facilitating team delivering cultural capability programs face to face and virtually nationwide, amongst many other commitments that keep him busy.
We yarn about his youth, his 8 children and their sporting successes, the racism he experienced during his time in the AFL and we touch on his thoughts on the recent events regarding the structural racism occurring in the AFL today. A deadly yarn not to be missed!!
