I can understand, kinda, why an Australian alligator seeker would drop a boomerang. Those aussie's are a strange bunch after all. But What is this guy doing wearing a football helmet??!
You'll notice that the Ozzie description talks about him supporting his favorite football team, and the "football" helmet in question is described in a way to explain the issue completely.
Or rather, you won't notice, but once I point it out you'll probably go back and read the description and then catch on.
