The ride raised over $1,300 for the Epilepsy Foundation of Victoria’s Parent Epilepsy Support Network.
He has been an active and successful fundraiser for the Epilepsy Foundation of Victoria for many years. Joffa’s Walk for Epilepsy was run in 2006.
Throughout the 2012 AFL season, Corfe, with Ben Bronx, debuted the Bronxy & Joffa show on YouTube. On the weekly show they would discuss the biggest talking points of the previous round and preview the coming week of Australian Rules football.
On 22 February 2012, during a tour of the United Kingdom with Ben Bronx, Joffa and Bronxy joined a rally to recognise Somaliland as an independent country, and to seek recognition from the British government. They raised awareness of the cause by rallying through the streets of London and by posting a video online that went viral.
In 2011, a new version – known as the "People's Jacket" – was created by the Epilepsy Foundation and is worn by Collingwood supporters, usually children, after a win.
From 30 July 2011 to 6 August 2011, Joffa Corfe and Joffre Pearce, father of Danyle Pearce, a player with the Fremantle Football Club in the Australian Football League, completed a fundraising bicycle ride from Rockbank, outside of Melbourne, to Football Park in Adelaide. Along the way they met up with local football clubs, and gave and received encouragement. Olympic Gold Medalist Brett Aitken joined the riders on their final leg.
During one of the breaks in the NAB Cup three-way match at Docklands Stadium on 12 February 2011, "Joffa" turned out as a player for the "Collingwood" team in a charity fund-raiser against a celebrity "Carlton" team. Funds were raised to aid victims of the devastating Queensland floods.
Following a turbulent 10-year history the gold jacket was officially retired after the 2010 premiership win. The jacket was auctioned on eBay for $3,900, with all proceeds going to the Epilepsy Foundation of Victoria.
Inspired by the classic Australian movie The Club, producer-director Chris Liontos decided to make his own film about Aussie rules football "through the eyes of the most passionate supporter in the country." Joffa: The Movie was released nationally on 2 September 2010. For such "an ultra-low budget movie to get a national cinema release – this has never happened (before)," Liontos said. The official website describes Joffa's life outside football as "hilariously funny" and promises "a journey that explores mateship, trust and the human spirit".
The DVD of the movie was released in December 2010 by Madman Entertainment. In reviewing the DVD, Filmink said: "A ubiquitous, beguiling weirdo, Joffa is warm and funny playing himself..." The DVD includes a full set of commentaries, bloopers and footage of Collingwood's 2010 Grand Final win celebrations.
When Prime Minister, Julia Gillard, tried to rally voters during the 2010 Federal election by calling for a "unity ticket" of people who hated the Collingwood Football Club, Corfe reacted by saying that she had "lost his vote". When she was asked to explain her comments, Gillard said that she had no choice but to "stick with her footy principles". Joffa said, "For a Prime Minister to jump on the anti-Collingwood bandwagon, I reckon it’s a bit poor... We don’t need that stuff on the national political stage." He added: "I have gone to the Greens, she’s finished."
In 2008 Corfe created controversy when photographs of him posing with two rifles in the manner of Melbourne criminal Chopper Read were posted on a Collingwood supporters' internet forum. His actions were criticised by gun control activists but Collingwood's president, Eddie McGuire, defended Corfe's character.
When the Carlton Football Club, long time nemesis of Joffa's beloved Collingwood, got itself into "dire financial trouble" in 2007, Joffa appeared in Carlton colours outside Flinders Street railway station "to show he was serious about helping the club". He described Carlton as one of the four "powerhouses of the competition" and said he would "do anything" to keep them from disappearing in a merger with another club. "They're the club I love to hate, so I'd hate to see them go."
After a ban on the use of the term "white maggot" in reference to umpires was introduced at the Gabba in 2007, Corfe defended the right of supporters to use the term. He compared security at the ground to Gestapo.
Before the 2003 AFL Grand Final, Corfe announced that he was going to discontinue use of the jacket, however after Collingwood's loss, he suggested that the jacket would make a comeback the next season. New jackets were introduced in 2005 and 2010. The last version featured the logo of the Epilepsy Foundation of Victoria on front and back. In 2010, Corfe said that he would retire the gold jacket "if the Pies win the flag." He had the jacket on by the sixth minute of the final quarter of the 2010 AFL Grand Final replay, as Collingwood stormed to an easy win over St Kilda.
Today, he is single, working and a social advocate. His daughter, Emma, was diagnosed at 13 (2003) with epilepsy and he has since become a vocal advocate for the Epilepsy Foundation of Victoria. He likes to read books and spend time with his three grandchildren – Simon, Jeffrey and Destiny-Pearl, who are indigenous. He has close connections with the indigenous community at Lake Tyers. He has not had a drink of alcohol since 2000. "I never had a problem with it, but I have major problems with people who are intoxicated. They just don't make sense."
Although Corfe has been the highest profile member of the Collingwood cheer squad, he has not always had a comfortable relationship with other fans and club staff. In 2003 leaflets criticising his behaviour and including his home address were distributed at a Collingwood match.
Corfe rose to prominence in 2002 by donning a gold jacket and holding up a "Game Over" banner during games when he felt Collingwood had secured victory, usually in the fourth quarter. The jacket came from the Channel Nine wardrobe and had been previously worn by Bernard King and Tommy Hanlon Jr. When Corfe saw Eddie McGuire wear it on The Footy Show, he emailed McGuire to ask if he could use it to celebrate Collingwood victories. McGuire had the jacket drycleaned and handed it over at a Victoria Park training session.
In round 18 of the 2002 AFL season, in a match between Collingwood and their archrival Carlton, Corfe drew attention to the fact that Carlton were going to finish last that year by waving an oversized wooden spoon. The spoon was initially confiscated, though it was later put on display at the Collingwood club rooms. Collingwood won that game by 108 points.
Corfe, one of four boys and three girls, came from a working-class family in Melbourne. His mother, June Murphy, suffered from alcoholism and drug addiction. His father, Robert Corfe, who also suffered from alcoholism and drug addiction, drove a truck, delivered mail and had various other "bum jobs". When he was a young child, Corfe's family moved around various suburbs in Melbourne, escaping debt and financial obligations. By the time he was 14, in the mid 1970s, Corfe had left home and was living at the Allambie Boys Home in East Burwood, where he stayed for about five years. During this time he recalls a "lovely couple" taking him to Victoria Park, where he saw his first game of football. His six siblings also lived in and out of public homes and foster care throughout their early years due to their parents' chronic instability and poverty.
Jeff "Joffa" Corfe (born 7 July 1964) is an Australian rules football supporter best known for being the leader of the Collingwood Football Club cheer squad since 2001.
