You can hear it most winter weekends sitting among the barrackers in the upper decks of the G. Or at a suburban ground standing behind the goals sucking on a can watching the magoos have a run. It’s the coodabeens, yelling out instructions. It’s the old broads registering their disgust. You can hear it in the banter between the has-beens and wannabe commentators. It’s there in the coaches box, shouted down blistering telephones lines to weary runners. It’s unique, just like the game. It’s the language of unadulterated love. It’s the language of Aussie Rules. This book is an A-Z of everything you wanted to know about footy language — from aerial ping pong and ankle tappers, to yellow submarines and zone defense.
