Such a great book by Michael Warner. Get down and dirty with the politics and scandals in Australian football - like anything Australian there's always a seedy underbelly of money and power.
Amazon says "Revealing how a fledgling state administrative body evolved into the Australian Football League and its meteoric rise to become one of the richest and most powerful organisations in the land, award-winning investigative journalist Mick Warner delivers a fascinating insight into key figures and their networks.
Tracking the rise of the AFL and its supremos, The Boys' Club lifts the lid on the scandals, secrets and deal-making that have shaped this iconic Australian game."
"Only last month, former Booyong High student Simon 'Specky' Magee led the Gosmore Grammar Knights to victory against our courageous Booyong Lions. But now he's back in town! Well, we at the Bugle would like to welcome Simon home, but even his best mates don't want him on the team. And now we can't help but wonder just how 'specky-tacular' Magee really is.... Will he ever play with Booyong again? Specky has questions of his own.... Will Robbo and Danny ever talk to him again? What could possibly scare the Great McCarthy? And what's Screamer up to now?"
