Summary
  • Essendon footballer, John Coleman, topped the VFL (now AFL) goalkicking in each of his five completed seasons (1949-53). He played in two premierships, and was named full-forward in the first-ever All-Australian team (1953). He was selected in that position in the AFL Team of the Century and was an inaugural Legend in the AFL Hall of Fame. The leading goalkicker in the AFL home &​ away season is awarded the John Coleman Medal. To coincide with the unveiling of the latest statue in the Australia Post Avenue of Legends at the Melbourne Cricket Ground, here is Coleman - the Untold Story of an AFL Legend. You will read of a man who could, just as easily, have played for Richmond, and of another who had to leave Essendon because Coleman took his spot, yet went on to emulate many of his feats. There is the explosive true story behind one of football’s most sensational on-field controversies, the Caspar incident, which cost the Bombers a flag. Likewise, the real background to that famous knee. And, so much more.
