It’s AFL Grand Final time on Saturday night and ahead of the blockbuster between Melbourne and the Western Bulldogs there has been some bizarre messages of support from the sporting world.
First, English Premier League giant Manchester City decided to post on Instagram about the match, with the tenuous link that their owners City Football Group also own A-League club Melbourne City.
Now You Tube personality and professional boxer Jake Paul has also decided to weigh in with his thoughts on the AFL’s biggest match of the year.
After being told by the wife of his Australian manager that the AFL Grand Final was happening Down Under, Paul took to Twitter with a message about the time.
“My manager’s Aussie wife told me it’s the AFL Grand Final this weekend, Bulldogs versus Demons,” Paul tweeted.
“You know I’m a dog so I like the dogs but my heart is always gonna be with the Demons.
“Demons about to end the drought?”

Paul has been a world famous You Tube personality since 2013, but has recently moved into boxing, having a 4-0 record in the world of professional fighting.
His first fight was a victory against fellow You Tuber AnEsonGin in January 2020 and later that year he defeated retired basketballer Nate Robinson.
In 2021, he has won two fights against retired MMA fighters Ben Askren and Tyron Woodley.
Paul has attracted plenty of controversy during his career, being the subject of sexual assault allegations in 2021.
