In season 2017, Aflplayers.com.au will showcase Michael Barlow’s ‘Out of Bounds’ podcast.
The new Gold Coast Suns recruit has worked tirelessly to take listeners behind the scenes and into the life of an AFL player. Each week, Barlow will have a relaxed conversation with a current AFL footballer or key stakeholder and discuss the football landscape, and their busy lives outside of the AFL microscope.
In the fourth installment, Barlow chats to former Hawk and Eagle, Xavier Ellis, who has moved into the coaching world while still playing with Swan Districts at the WAFL level.
Ellis looks back on the 2005 draft year, playing in a successful Hawthorn era under Alastair Clarkson, moving west to play with the Eagles and his social media antics.
