A ground breaking book which looks at the transformation of the VFL from a prestigious suburban based competition into the richest and most powerful national sport in Australia. Linnell examines the game behind the game, the corporate power plays, league and club politics, commercialism and marketing and the ambitious, passionate personalities at the administrative level. The focus is on the 1980s, more detailed historical developments are outlined where necessary to provide context for various topics. Linnell composed this work after extensive research and interviews with many of the key figures of football in the 1970s and 1980s.
