AFL team posts bizarre video poking fun at their OWN PLAYER for repeatedly making shocking mistakes in matches

Social media team is known for savage posts Asked player what they wanted for birthday message Delivered brutal reply when player asked them to let rip 

GWS star Toby Bedford has been given a roasting for his 24th birthday by his own club, but he only has himself to blame.

Fresh off the Giants' miracle win in Geelong on Saturday, Bedford tempted fate when asked by the club's social media team what he wanted included in his birthday post.

Bedford, who is nicknamed 'Snooze' because his name has 'bed' in it, replied: 'Come up with something funny haha I heard the media team doesn't miss.'

So the social media team duly obliged, posting a video of Bedford missing repeated attempts at goal with the caption: 'We don't miss but Toby does x.'

To ease the blow, the social media team then posted a nicer birthday post showing Bedford pretending to sleep and saying 'Happy Birthday Toby Snooze Bedford'

Speaking ahead of the AFL's Sir Doug Nicholls Round, Bedford spoke passionately on the Giants' podcast about why he believes the date for Australia Day should be changed.

He also spoke about why he relishes the chance to enhance his teammates' understanding of First Nations stories and how he hopes to inspire other indigenous children taking up the sport.

'When we do speak about these things, I think a lot of them may not have heard from an Indigenous person and their point of view,' he said.

'So when I speak to (my teammates) from my point of view, I feel as though we're all really close here and connected, it changes their aspects on how they look at things as well.

'For Indigenous kids sport is massive. It's a good way for them to get out of their communities and get out of doing the wrong thing.

'So, trying to get more young kids drafted, both boys and girls, is something that I think is really good that we should try and drive. As Indigenous players already here, we are the role models and can try and help where we can as well.'
