Peter "Crackers" Keenan's Biography

Peter 'Crackers' Keenan is a popular commentator of Australian sport, particularly AFL and horse racing. Throughout his Australian Rules Football career he was known as a larrikin, both on and off the field, and now he has become one of the real celebrities of the industry.

His popularity with the public has assisted him in becoming a high profile media personality, with regular appearances on the national television, sports programs on all channels, 774 ABC radio commentator, the Lateball Show and especially the ABC's Live & Sweaty. His wacky sense of humour, uninhibited views, and crazy stunts produced a cult following on Live & Sweaty. 'Crackers' played with Melbourne, Essendon and North Melbourne in the VFL during the 1970's.

After playing 101 games for Melbourne in six seasons he signed for North Melbourne, a club who had just won the premiership. Apart from having the chance to play regular finals football he had also been tempted to the club by coach Ron Barassi. He was North Melbourne's first ruckman in their 1977 premiership team and would have played in another Grand Final the following season had he not been suspended.  The 1979 and 1980 seasons where spent with Essendon before he returned to his original team Melbourne who had also acquired his premiership coach Ron Barassi. After retiring as a player he became an Australian rules media personality.

‘Crackers’ has a keen interest in racing and his AFL commentary is still heard on National Indigenous Radio Station, Inside Footy, Sportal, Star FM 93.1 Wagga Wagga and SEN radio , providing footy and racing tips.
