Not the Brownlow

Listen to Not the Brownlow

Best on ground is all well and good, but footy used to be more about pep-talks than peptides. What are the real measures of greatness: in the players and the clubs, the coaches and the administrators, the umpires and the fans. If we’re nominating champions across the game, should we be factoring in on- and off-field performance in equal measure?

The irrepressible Sam Pang chairs a panel of footy experts including Age journalists Tim Lane and Jake Niall, and star coach Peta Searle.
