* Cheryl Critchley review of Stephen Alomes, Australian Football The People’s Game 1958-2058 (wallawallapress.com) Herald Sun, 24. 11. 2012 (Weekend, p25)
This fascinating read is perfect for VFL/AFL purists and fans wanting to learn where our great game has come from and where it is going. It looks at what the AFL needs to do to remain healthy heading towards its bicentenary in 2058. An Adjunct Professor in RMIT’s Globalism Research Centre, Alomes is an academic but writes in a way footy fans will relate to. He makes good points on how footy must cope with globalisation of sport and young people’s diversifying interests. Illustrated with photos and Alomes’ own artwork, it has a foreword by legendary coach Kevin Sheedy.
*Author of the football novel Still Kicking (2006) and Our Footy: Real Fans vs Big Bucks (2010) and, former family reporter, Herald Sun.

Michael Collins review of Australian Football: The People’s Game 1958-2058 in The Yorker (MCC Library), 50, Autumn 2013 p. 27

Stephen Alomes’ book is unique and will provoke conversation and debate among journalists, local clubmen, scholars and madly passionate footy fans alike. As Australian football books can be sometimes underwhelming and wrought with sporting clichés, Alomes’ combination of conversationalist writing style and detailed research makes this a refreshingly thought-provoking examination of football’s history and future outlook.
