About the Author:

Dennis Cometti is one of the best known and most respected sportscasters in Australia. Over the years he has worked at the ABC, commenting on Test cricket alongside the great Alan McGilvray with Channel Seven, calling AFL matches around the country as well as covering two Commonwealth Games and the Barcelona and Atlanta Olympics, and with Channel Nine, where he has the reputation of being the most distinctive, eloquent, and beloved football commentators the game has ever known. As a football fan since he was old enough to see over the boundary fence and a sports journalist for major metropolitan newspapers for more than a decade, the Age's Jon Pierik understands what makes the game great—and why it inspires fine journalism. Pierik combines these two ingredients to help deliver a must read for AFL fans.
