You Am I frontman, Tim Rogers, has a confession.

He’s absolutely crazy about AFL – and at 49, he doesn’t mind playing it either.

“I just do it socially,” he told Full-Time’s Clinton Maynard for this week’s Famous Fan.

“I get together with a bunch of fellas and women and we just do circle work,” he said.

The singer-songwriter also revealed that sport-loving musicians aren’t as rare as some would imagine, outing the lead singer of another former Australian music powerhouse, Powderfinger’s Bernard Fanning, as a cricket nut.

“I’m still yet to get in the nets with my mate Bernie Fanning but he’s an excellent cricketer,” he said.
