This book looks at footy during the 1960s, a decade when fans got to see some of the game's biggest names, some of its most famous matches and incidents, a succession of memorable grand finals - and the true 'arrival' of television. TV hit big time in the 1960s, and when it did it made stars of the players - we got closer to both the players and the game than ever before. Each 'year' chapter gives an overview of the footy season and includes all the necessary facts and figures for footy enthusiasts. Details include game scores for finals and grand finals; goals, best players, umpires, grounds and attendance figures for grand finals, team line-ups; the ladder; Brownlow medallists; and a profile of the leading goal kicker. Each 'club' chapter is a vivid personal account written by a high-profile fan who was there for all the great games and legendary moments.
