Our ‘Know Your Crow’ series is back for 2016!
Dean Gore was one of four new recruits to join the Club during last year’s Trade Period.
A Crows fan growing up, the South Australian has already picked up one of the best (or worst?) nicknames going around at the Club. Dean will also be keeping a close eye on the Australian Open if his celebrity crush is anything to go by…
Read a sample of Gore's answers below and see all his responses in the video player at the top of the page.
What’s your nickname?
I’ve got a few nicknames so far. I started off with ‘Apples’ – Apples, core, Gore, so that’s pretty ordinary by ‘Tex’. Then Frank Gore, he’s an NFL player. JJ came up with that one. There’s been a few others like Al Gore and things like that. There’s been a few funny ones.
Which AFL team did you support growing up and why?
I was a Crows fan just because all my family when I was growing up they all supported the Crows. I came along to games when I was younger and followed them all the way until I got drafted.
What’s your favourite TV show?
I got into Suits through the year. I really love Suits, it’s pretty interesting and there’s a few good looking women on there which is nice. It’s a really interesting show and I like it.
What’s your best sport outside of football?
I played a bit of cricket when I was younger. I played a little bit down in town when I was younger and then at Hahndorf in the later years before I got drafted. I was a hack of bastman and I used to bowl a bit of pace, but then I’d bowl a few leggies and get smashed.
What’s your biggest fear?
I hate heights, or just being scared of the dark. I’m pretty bad with the dark!
