Chris Judd's thinking of life after he leaves the footy field
CARLTON'S dual Brownlow medallist Chris Judd wants to start a small business - he just isn't sure when.
After announcing yesterday that he had signed on for another season, taking him through to the end of the 2014 season, the 29-year-old said he had given quite a bit of thought to what he might do after hanging up the boots.
"I think about it a lot, but I really do chop and change," he said.
"Hopefully I'll get involved with a small business post-football and go from there. I'll have some involvement with footy as well - but not full-time."
Judd said he didn't know when his playing career might end, and was happy to take it year-by-year at this stage.
"From your perspective you want to make sure you are able to give 100% physically and mentally. And you want to make sure the club is comfortable with the role you're playing and they really feel you can contribute something around the field," he said.
"If anything of those things aren't happening you don't go on. If all those things are in place then you go on for another year.
The former Blues skipper also said he was "still very stimulated by the game".
