Summary
A sport unlike any other in the world, football has always been Australia's bellwether. But at a time when politics is increasingly conducted like sports - full of one-eyed tribalism, captain's calls and policy dictated by the Newspoll scoreboard - football is the one institution that's more relevant than ever. And it's Richmond that's out in front of the pack. Before the club could break its premiership drought, it had to change how it thought about good leadership. By weaving together the game's conflicted history, a sharp-eyed analysis of Richmond's off-field turbulence and his own love of the Tigers, Megalogenis reveals how Richmond found a new way to win - and how, following the 2019 election, Australia might do the same
Summary
When Richmond won the 2017 AFL premiership, thousands celebrated the return to glory of one of the games oldest and most successful clubs. But outside of the suburb of Richmond - who cares? Megalogenis is a Richmond nut, but he's also the foremost interpreter of our national narrative. In Richmond's victory, he argues, we can understand our past, diagnose some of the ills of the present, and see a path towards our future.
