Editors-in-chief

Darren Murphy: Darren is the one of the founding editors of The Fifty. He has written about sport and culture for a number of publications. As a player he wore long sleeves in an attempt to avoid contact and attract best & fairest votes. In reality, he achieved neither of those goals. Tweet at him: @MrDMurphy

Justin Robertson: Justin is The Fifty’s founder and a journalist who has written for Sportsnet, ESPN, VICE Sports, Yahoo Sport and The Guardian, among others. He hoards magazines and still can’t believe Martin Pike owns four premiership medals. Tweet at him: @justinjourno

Deputy Editor

Nick Papadakis: Nick is a Tasmanian living in Toronto. He is a founding writer and editor for The Fifty and brings with him six years worth of football broadcast experience. A self-confessed North Hobart Oval meat pie enthusiast, he loves a good video game and thinks dogs are good people. Tweet at him: @pappy182 

Contributing Editor

Damien Peck: Damien is a founding writer and editor with The Fifty. He writes for the ABC, is an editor for Footy Prophet and calls games of footy for the Essendon District League.

Senior Writers

Simon Drum:  Simon is a founding writer with The Fifty and grew up in a footy-mad, farming family in country New South Wales. His earliest footy memory was watching Michael Long gallop over the Fosters logo on the wing and then around Michael Sexton to kick that famous goal in the 1993 Grand Final.
