    Q&A with Tom Liberatore from AFL Players Assoc.

    Poster from big footy noted this article. It is a beaut read and shows there is much more to Tom than perhaps many assume. His social conscience is a big driver for him.

    A great read, here is link:

    Re: Q&A with Tom Liberatore from AFL Players Assoc.

    Hmmmm, I wonder if Tom wants to buy my record collection? I've got about a thousand LPs from the '70s and '80s.

    Actually he's Tom Libba and if he asked I'd probably just give it to him.
    AFLW Premiers 2018


    After speaking to Obie for about fourty-five minutes on the telephone we
    Finally arrived at the truth of the matter and said that we had to go down
    And pick up the garbage, and also had to go down and speak to him at the
    Police officer's station. So we got in the red vw microbus with the
    Shovels and rakes and implements of destruction and headed on toward the
    Police officer's station.
    Now friends, there was only one or two things that Obie coulda done at
    The police station, and the first was he could have given us a medal for
    Being so brave and honest on the telephone, which wasn't very likely, and
    We didn't expect it, and the other thing was he could have bawled us out
    And told us never to be seen driving garbage around the vicinity again,
    Which is what we expected, but when we got to the police officer's station
    There was a third possibility that we hadn't even counted upon, and we was
    Both immediately arrested. Handcuffed.
    And I said "Obie, I don't think I can pick up the garbage with these handcuffs on. "
    "He said, "Shut up, kid. Get in the back of the patrol car. "

    Really decent interview, great to see the more mature side of Libba, his grown up alot from the WahWah Lounge days.

    That is a good sit down with the great man. I love Libba for his individuality. Such a quirky dude!!

    Libba is always going to be a bit of a goofy dude but he seems like a good citizen now that he's maturing a bit.

    Thanks Josie. I don’t remember seeing a “straight” interview with Libba with him dropping that mysterious persona he hides behind, so this is great. Also glad not to see the dreary Son of Libba angle rehashed...he’s his own man now, actually probably always has been.
