Extraordinary stories and recollections dominate this energetic glimpse into the hearts and minds of the die-hard fans of the Australian Football League. Based on interviews conducted with 50 football supporters, this account takes the roller-coaster ride through the passions of triumph and despair, mourning and melancholy, joy and fulfillment, and sacrifice and resurrection. With a keen ear, this study listens to the fans talk about the emotions associated with the game, how it gives meaning to their lives, and shows that football is much more than just a game.

Book Description NewSouth Publishing, Australia, 2010. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Salary caps, drunken escapades, sponsorship deals, and teams enjoying victory and surviving defeat dominate coverage of football. Meanwhile fans agonise over line-ups, sweat over results, and look forward to the weekly football ritual. With each new season, having hibernated over the long, hot summer, the team emerges as if revived and raises hopes anew.
