              WE ARE ESSENDON How the supplements saga tested the loyalty of the clubas most passionate fans. Essendon Football Clubas proud historya"from 1872a"was forever sullied in 2012 when the club embarked on a fateful supplements program for its players that brought the club to the b...rink, resulting in 34 players from the 2012 season being banned, in January, 2016, by the Court of Arbitration for Sport. The media focus on the club and players was unrelenting. But what of the fans? They too suffered; they were mercilessly derided in the streets, in cyberspace and at games.

              A pictorial record of the Western Bulldogsa history-making season 2016. The story of the 2016 AFL season is one for the ages, with the Western Bulldogs breaking a premiership drought that stretched 62 years. Players, coaches and fans alike have endured countless broken dreams ...since the Dogs last triumphed in 1954, as they have fallen agonisingly short of an elusive flag many times over. In 2016, as the club formerly known as Footscray garnered unprecedented support and goodwill from across the nation, the long wait for a premiership finally ended. But the remarkable aspect of the Western Bulldogsa 2016 season is that a flag rarely seemed possible at any stage along the way, with injury after injury presenting seemingly insurmountable hurdles to the Dogsa aim for another grab of footballas silverware. AGAINST ALL ODDS tells the story, through photographs selected from of official AFL Media, and from the Bulldogsa collection, of the Bulldogsa aimpossiblea season, from the hard slog of pre-season training on sweltering summer days, to the moment coach Luke Beveridge and captains Easton Wood and Bob Murphy lifted the premiership cup at last on Grand Final day. Chronicling a tale of heartache, hope and ultimately unbridled joy, AGAINST ALL ODDS captures the defining moments of the Bulldogsa 2016 season a" including a finals campaign that saw them as underdogs in every final against more experienced teams week after week, from coast to coast, as they overcame each and every setback to achieve a goal that many, if not most, thought impossible.

              The Coach is the ultimate inside story about football, and the North Melbourne coaches, players and personalities who were game changers. In 1977, writer John Powers was given open access to the North Melbourne Football Club when revered coach Ron Barassi was a dominant figure in... the game. The book that emerged from that season, The Coach, recorded the months of often brutal training leading up to the spine-tingling Grand Final draw between North Melbourne and Collingwood, and on to North Melbourneas ultimate victory. This victory, against all odds, is considered one of the finest premierships in the gameas history, as the Kangaroos not only endured an unprecedented five matches, but also came from 27 points behind at three-quarter-time in the Grand Final to force a replay. Nominated as athe bible on motivationa by The Age, John Powersa account of the teamas massive commitment and Barassias extraordinary motivation techniques remains as relevant and fascinating today as it was when first published in 1978. Sadly, John Powers died in 2007, aged 72, but The Coach remains his eternal legacy, a true masterpiece of sports writing. Forty years after Northas extraordinary season, The Coach describes an era of football that preceded the professional approach of the modern game, but is indication of how the game was in the process of changing, driven by the master coach, Ron Barassi. The Slattery Media Group is proud to publish this work again to commemorate this anniversary, and to pay tribute to John Powersa ground-breaking work.

              Not many football identities can lay claim to the beloved stature enjoyed by Greg Champion without lacing up the boots or stepping into the commentary booth, but the Coodabeensa star has spent decades delighting fans with the songs that comprise The Thing About Football: The Son...gs of Greg Champion. Since his Coodabeensa debut in 1983, aChampsa has written thousands of football and cricket-themed songs that have become part of the Australian sporting vernacular, and for the first time their lyrics are collected in one place. From Dermott Brereton is a Hood and I Am Diperdomenico to Thereas Only One Tony Lockett and Tony Modraas Gone Surfing, Championas ditties and parodies have become favourite singalongs, harking back to simpler times when a lukewarm pie and a tattered beanie were all that footy fans needed for a day in the outer. After 36 years on the ABC airwaves, Champs has also toured the country constantly since he first came to national prominence with his 1986 single, I made a hundred in the backyard at Mumas. In 1995, the Seven Network adopted his fan favourite, Thatas the thing about football, as its theme tune for AFL broadcasts, and the song became became ubiquitous. Though many of the lyrics in this anthology will be familiar to lovers of Championas songs, the stories behind them might not. It is safe to say that Mrs Brereton wasnat entirely pleased with Championas take on her famous son. Other Champion targets can only smile and laugh. As Hawthorn legend Robert aDippera DiPierdomenico puts it: aoeGreg Championas ditties have put fun into footy. Of course, I gave him a huge kick start with aI am DiP-ier-dom-en-ico!a

              Dr Bridie OaDonnell is the defi nition of a unique Australian sporting hero. A medical doctor who spent her 20s pursuing sideline sporting careers in rowing and Ironman triathlon, it wasnat until she reached her mid-30s that OaDonnell found her true calling in the ranks of pro...fessional cyclists. Intensely driven and a true believer that sporting greatness was still possiblea"at a time of life when most of us have long given up on our dreamsa"OaDonnell became a world record-breaker in 2016, when she set a new mark in womenas UCI Hour Record book. Life and Death: a cycling memoir, is the story of that triumph. It is also the tale of the backbreaking hard work it took to get therea"the audacity of OaDonnellas late arrival in a brutally tough sport, the physical grind of training and the mind games of team selection, the rejections, the disappointments, the sorrow s and the personal upheavals it took for Bridie OaDonnell to fi nally take her bow as a world-beater. Life and Death will inspire both women and men whoave given up on their sporting ambitions. It also gives a warts-and-all account of the real lives of professional cyclists. Pedalling through the picturesque alpine regions of Italy, barked at by sadistic and uncaring team managers, and persevering when most would have thrown in the towel, OaDonnell provides an unfl inching portrait of the life of an Australian woman in the professional peloton. A trailblazing athlete and doctor, Bridie OaDonnell is now the head of Victoriaas newly-established Offi ce for Women in Sport, and a regular guest on the Network Ten television show The Projecta"a public profi le that makes her a leading Australian voice on womenas sport and health issues. Upon its release, OaDonnell will be promoting Life and Death in a range of mainstream media outlets.
