"I was born to play in Grand Finals," says Robert DiPierdomenico-and play in Grand Finals he did. After an inauspicious debut with the Hawks back in 1975, The "Big Dipper," as he likes to be known, was best afield in the 1978 Grand Final against North Melbourne.
Dipper developed into a national media personality via his work on Channel 7. He is well known for his role as 'Boundary Rider' for the network and now continues his work with the network as a panel member of The Sunday Footy Panel with Rex Hunt.
Dipper is also heavily involved with the AFL as the ambassador for their junior development program, Auskick. Dipper's role includes educating Australia's youth about Australian Rules Football - a role that takes him to every corner of the nation.
Robert 'Dipper' DiPierdomenico's energy and enthusiasm will delight all ages. His stories will inspire, motivate, enlighten and will be a talking point at any function. He is a highly recognised speaker and MC.
