Jake Stringer has continued his charge towards becoming the AFL’s shittest bloke by debuting his new bleached blonde top-bun haircut at Essendon’s 2018 season launch.
This stunt comes without shock considering Stringer’s offseason, which hasn’t been short of controversial events.
Stringer’s offseason from hell begun in September when Stringer’s ex-partner, who he shared two children with, revealed to the media that he had a four month affair with a 17 year-old high school girl while they were together.
This incident was shortly followed by a brand new tattoo which depicted a lion on his stomach with the lion’s mouth represented by Stringer’s belly button.

Many thought that Stringer was finished with the attention grabbing acts, however he proved them all wrong as he strutted into the season launch with the new cut. The First Reserve managed to get an exclusive interview with Stringer at the launch.
“I’ve been really trying to get to the top before the season begins.” He said when quizzed about his increasing notoriety among the football community.
“I thought the affair and the tattoo would have been enough, but then Jordan De Goey started to try a few tricks, so I thought I better step my game up.
“Luckily for me this shit haircut has to be worse than a DUI.”
With the season under a month away, it seems Stringer will enter the season as the league’s worst bloke, unless Jordan De Goey is able to conjure a response to Stringer’s latest cry for attention.
