Daniel Pratt (born 21 March 1983) is a former Australian rules footballer who played for the North Melbourne Football Club in the Australian Football League (AFL).


Early career

Pratt was taken at pick 42 in the 2000 National AFL Draft from the Northern Eagles Football Club in the AFL Queensland league to the Kangaroos. He did not play a game and was delisted at the end of the 2002 season.


Pratt was rookie-listed for 2003 by the Brisbane Lions and spent the year with Northern Eagles. He showed good form and was elevated for 2004. He played three games in 2004 and was not successful. He was subsequently delisted and he nominated for the draft.

Third time lucky

He did not expect that he would be drafted but the Kangaroos decided to take a punt and draft him at pick 74 for 2005. He played 17 games in his first season back at the Kangaroos and impressed Dean Laidley. In 2006 he played 18 games but chose to end his season after surgery which would enable him to start pre-season training with the team on 16 October.


Daniel had an outstanding 2007 season gaining some consistency to his game. He ended up playing every game for the Roos and ended up finishing third in the Syd Barker Medal.


Daniel was delisted by North Melbourne on 17 October 2011 possibly due to his form or his age, after playing 119 AFL matches.[1]


Daniel Pratt usually plays as a back pocket but can also be deploy as half back flanks or midfield.


Chicken video scandal

Pratt was the club ringleader (along with teammate Adam Simpson) in a scandal which involved the uploading of a video to YouTube featuring a condom covered rubber chicken's head sexually penetrating a chicken corpse.[2] In the video, locations inside North Melbourne club rooms and players names were identifiable. Several groups, including the AFL, the Victorian Women's Trust and National Council of Women of Australia labelled the content of the video highly offensive and sexist to women, treating them as sex objects and openly encouraging of rape.[3]

Rushed behind incident, round 4 2009

Daniel Pratt was the first victim of the AFL's new rule in regards to deliberately rushed behinds, giving away a free kick for that offence in his side's match against Essendon. Despite this, the Kangaroos won the match.
