Classic footy quotes from the glory days of the VFL right up to the 2007 AFL Grand Final

Talking football is the ultimate participant sport. Most of us will never fly up there like Cazaly on the sacred turf of the MCG, but the footy industry provides endless fascination and speculation through commentary, interviews and chatter. Whether it's a withering blast from a coach, a sharp witticism from a commentator or a player's verbal clanger, football language can be as colourful, chaotic, brutal and uniquely Australian as the game itself.

This classic collection of quotes from players, coaches, umpires, commentators and fans is perfect for the diehard fan of the Australian game.
