With 392 pages of enlightening stories, historical photographs and memorabilia, this book offers a unique insight into the real world of umpiring, from the scandals and sackings to the proud achievements of the AFL Umpire's Association and its members, both in the sport and in the community.Every week of the football season, 10,000 umpires officiate at football games around Australia - week in, week out, rain, hail or shine, at both metropolitan and country competitions. Their passion and dedication rarely makes the news or enters the spirited discussions of footy lovers around the country, yet they are as crucial to the game as the players and the coaches, as the goal posts and the Sherrin.The Man in White takes the reader into the world of football umpiring over the past 100 years, first in the VFL, then in the AFL. It traces the 100-year official history of the AFL Umpires' Association, from its humble beginnings in 1909 to its role within Australian Football today, and covers many of the major umpiring incidents that have occurred both on and off the field.The Man in White is a fascinating journey through time - a journey taken in company with the most popular spot in Australia: Australian Football. 376pp.
