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 ninth installment, Barlow chats to his former high school friend, Tony Armstrong. The two boarded together at Assumption College, and found themselves onto AFL lists, with Armstrong playing for Adelaide, Sydney and Collingwood in his eight-year career.
The two discuss their time at school, Armstrong’s career — which includes a hilarious story about how he played VFL and AFL in the same day — his current work at the AFL Players’ Association, and more.
