Maybe they wanted a semi outsider view about how the review changes panned out? It would have been pretty sad to end the book with Round 23 last year, although I get a bit cranky that it is rarely acknowledged that we played some who weren't ready, just to give them a game and some experience when the result didn't affect anything.

I began reading it when the JLT series was being shown in the Tiger-thon. You certainly view it differently with this insider perspective.
I'm only half way through, but found the section on Emma Murray fascinating. She's our new Rudi Webster.

Just finished chapter 10, finished the pre-season comp and went over the leadership program.
It sounded better than the popularity contest I felt it was previously.

Brought it from one of the Doncaster book shops, also picked up the Bluray version of the GF from the Greens JB.
A couple of games into the season now with my book reading, its interesting some of the players highlighted for various things early in the season, eg T Hunt small defenders leadership, were in the VFL side at the end.

Meep Meep the mosquito fleet.

Probably leads to the "Chase, Run" written on Rioli's wrist in the GF.

Book arrived in the post on Thursday. Just onto Chapter 17 and what a read! And so well written. I agree re Reece Conca - I was tearing up big time about the toll his injuries have taken on him emotionally. And I loved that Cotch was able to talk openly about how the ridiculous question marks on his captaincy annoy/hurt him. Well, he's got the ultimate answer to those people now - the big shiny thing with the name of the club he captains so brilliantly engraved on it :-) I also love the team meeting stuff and how the coaches teach - asking the guys to answer questions, rather than talking at them. Soooo enjoying this book!
