AFL is one of Australia’s most popular sports and the only one we can claim as indigenous. According to The Boys’ Club, a jaw-dropping account of the scandals that have beset the AFL over the last twenty years, it is also managed by a ruthlessly entitled Melbourne-based executive that operates with a stunning lack of transparency and accountability. Michael Warner takes us behind the scenes and into the inner workings of the AFL to reveal how it became one of the richest and most powerful organisations in the country.
