Richmond F.C.

On October 31, 1907, the Richmond Football Club committee accepted an invitation to become a member of the then fledgling Victorian Football League. The Tigers now represent one of the game’s great and enduring cultures, a tradition built on inner-city tribal football, but which today thrives on a national stage as one of the great clubs of the Australian Football League.

The unyielding passion for the club and the team is represented vividly in more than 60 interviews with players, past and present, conducted by Rhett Bartlett, son of club immortal, KB—Kevin Bartlett. This is the raw story of a club and its people, its glory years and its lean. The tale is told in the words of those who lived the dream. From Vic Thorp and Jack Titus, to Royce Hart and Matthew Richardson, and icons such as Jack Dyer and Francis Bourke, Tom Hafey and Kevin Bartlett, the story of the Yellow and Black is brought to life.

First published in 2007, this updated edition contains an extra 70 pages (12 new chapters) of riveting content. It includes interviews with the 1980 Premiership captain Bruce Monteath, the last recorded interview with Maurice Rioli, the memories of David Cloke and Geoff Raines about the turbulent 1980s, an interview with Verdun Howell - who coached Richmond for one game, and the first ever interview with Stephen Parsons - a key figure in the Windy Hill Brawl. This is in addition to historical essays and up-to-date statistics and honour boards.
