About the book

For the first time, this book reveals in full intriguing detail, the cause and effect of of the Fitzroy Football Club’s merger with the Brisbane Bears in 1996. 

It was nothing short of the worst year ever experienced by a VFL/AFL club. This book recounts that devastating year, providing a deep understanding of the experience of the players, supporters, club officials and volunteers. Each of these perspectives are vital in understanding Fitzroy’s story; it is insufficient merely to understand how and why Fitzroy’s merger occurred - one must understand why it mattered.
