AFL superstar Patrick Dangerfield has been mercifully mocked online over his Brownlow Medal outfit.
The Geelong Cats star and former Brownlow winner went for a unique look for AFL’s night of nights this year on the Gold Coast.
Joined by wife Mardi who wore a stunning fuschia gown, Dangerfield made his own statement in his three-piece beige suit, striped open-neck shirt and dark brown loafers.

Former Collingwood Magpies star and Brownlow Medal winner Dane Swan provided hilarious commentary on Dangerfield’s outfit when he took over Sportsbet’s Twitter account on Sunday night.
‘Danger is either going to field 80 overs at square leg or he’s about to tame a few lions at the circus. What the hell is that outfit,’ Swan wrote.
The tweet prompted fans to join in the fun.
‘Looks like something you’d go and get measured up for after 27 bintangs by the pool in Bali,’ one commented.
Another added: ‘Are they his pyjamas. He was asleep on the day bed halfway through the count.’
One woman joked he was getting ready for next week’s Mad Monday celebrations.
Dangerfield wasn’t the only one to cop a sledging from Swan.
Dangerfield hopes to win his first premiership when Geelong take on the Richmond Tigers in Saturday night’s AFL grand final at the Gabba in Brisbane.
