Phillip Taylor

Phillip Taylor has supported Hawthorn for 45 years, picking the brown-and-gold jumper out of a line-up at a sports store in 1969 – a decision that not only attests to his heightened sense of fashion, but also proved somewhat prescient. He was at the MCG in 1971 when the Hawks won the premiership, and has now seen Hawthorn compete in 15 Grand Finals, winning 10 of them. He first became a member in 1973 and spent much of the ’70s and ’80s cutting up crepe paper to make banners and floggers. He blogs about Hawthorn at www.hfctwenty3.blogspot.com.au.
