AFL Grand Final Entertainment: Robbie William’s x-rated bracelet, who is performing, start time, how to watch

Robbie Williams joined AFL boss Gillon McLachlan on Thursday as the league trotted out it’s Grand Final entertainment line-up.

Music megastar Williams is the headline act and stole the limelight, but it was an accessory on his wrist that captured the attention of fans.

Williams stood alongside McLachlan as the outgoing boss welcomed the loaded entertainment line-up which includes Delta Goodrem, G-Flip, Katie Noonan, Ngairre, Goanna, Tasman Keith, The Temper Trap and Mike Brady.

Goodrem was announced as a last minute surprise who will join Williams during the blockbuster pre-game entertainment.

But as the introductions were being done, eagle eyed fans couldn’t help but notice the profanity laced jewellery Williams was rocking.

On Williams’ right wrist was a glittzy silver bracelet with the words “f*** off” emblazoned across it.

“I do know a little bit about footy,” Williams told reporters.

“I have not picked a team fully for who I’m going to support on the regular and I’m not picking a team before the final … and I don’t want the other half (of the crowd) to boo me while I’m singing.

“Honoured to be part of the occasion.”
