He was also involved in the Players Association, spending time as president and laying much of the groundwork for the current success of the association.

Simon and his brother Justin’s careers were immortalized by the introduction of the Madden Cup for games between the Essendon and Carlton football clubs and the AFLPA Madden Medal, awarded to footballers who make exceptional contributions to football, family and the community.

During his career, Simon has picked up plenty of experience appearing on television and radio, public speaking and presenting. He has been in heavy demand by business, government, media, educational and sporting bodies for his views of business, sport and life.

Never far from football, Simon has been often sought by AFL clubs to assist with ruck coaching. He has a continuing role as a director of the AFL players association and chairman of AFLPA Past Players Advisory Board.
