LEGENDS: THE AFL INDIGENOUS TEAM OF THE CENTURY

Indigenous Australians have given us some of our greatest football champions. With names like Farmer, Winmar, Long, Rioli and Goodes, the stories of Indigenous footballers are some of the most compelling in the great game of AFL. The journey for some has been one of great struggle and difficulty. For them, football was the only way out.

What makes their stories so important? This set of biographies uses the players’ own descriptions of their lives, their careers and the people who helped them achieve success. While some of these players have shared experiences, for others the story was different. All are inspirational.

From Farmer to McLeod, and Jackson to Matera, in the tradition of great Australian storytelling, these men’s lives are great Australian stories about Aboriginal Football Legends!

Dr Sean Gorman is a Research Fellow at the Centre for Aboriginal Studies, Curtin University, Western Australia. He is the lead investigator on research into the AFL’s vilification laws and policies. He has had a long relationship with many of the players. His previous book, Brotherboys sold approx. 6000 copies and was adapted for theatre. He is media savvy and has appeared on Good Morning Australia, 60 Minutes, The Marn Grook Footy Show, Radio National, Melbourne Writers Festival.
