Gary Morgan from Roy Morgan Research has crunched the numbers - a nationwide survey of 24 thousand footy fans.. people like you ... where you shop, what you eat and even if you like a flutter.. believe the research and the typical West coast fan is something like this ...

  • Prefers Hungry Jacks,
  • Shops at David Jones,

  • Eat Red Rooster,
  • Shops at Target and Kmart,
  • They like Ikea, Bunnings,
  • Are more likely to have a Telstra mobile phone
