Champions All: An Oral History of the AFL/VFL
Champions All is an oral History of AFL/VFL football, an encyclopedia of the history of our great game, compiled from the brutally honest thoughts of over 170 of its players from the 1940s to now. From Triple Brownlow winners, four time premiership coaches to thugs, characters, gentleman champions, glamorous high fliers, rugged club servants, 100 goal kickers and honest back pockets. If you are sick of spin, this book is for you. From childhood to retirement, quiet moments, tall tales, family and big picture, great Grand Finals, heartache and often conflicting opinions, at last a book detailing the history of AFL/VFL as it should be told; 100% through the words of the players and coaches who were out there. A book that delivers not just the view from the oval, but what made the hearts tick of the people out there.
