sport news Jeremy Cameron lifts lid on WILD Geelong's Grand Final celebrations as he ... trends now
Geelong superstar Jeremy Cameron has lifted the lid on the Cats' Grand Final celebrations, admitting the festivities took their toll on him to the point where he could only think of 'beer fumes and McDonald's'.
The Cats claimed a first premiership in 11 years in September as they thrashed the Swans by 81 points at the MCG - the second-biggest winning margin in the last decade after Richmond's 89-point dismantling of GWS in 2018.
Cameron celebrated one of his two goals in the final by pretending to drink a can of beer and then followed up with the real stuff as weeks of partying kicked off.
'The celebrations just roll on, you know. You've got to celebrate it,' he said on the Tommy Talks podcast with former Fremantle and GWS player Tommy Sheridan.
'We had the B&F [best and fairest awards night] Thursday [after the Grand Final] and that was a big night and then the Friday, might as well go to the pub.

'What else have we got to do the season’s over.'
Cameron then went to Bali a week after the Grand Final but soon realised the number of Australians around him on the Thai party island would make it difficult to unwind.
'I remember getting to Bali a week later and just going: "I need to get out of here [...] to get away from this,' he said.
'You know, you can’t just go for a week [or] weeks straight not sleeping.
'I had to have a few nights off, but even then, like you just keep celebrating.'
Cameron documented some of his exploits on social media, sharing a video on Instagram of him still partying with his mates well after 4am on the night of the Grand Final.
He also posted footage of himself in his barn chasing around a cow that had his premiership medal around her neck.
'We've done something silly here,' he can be heard saying in the video as he points to the medal.
