PlayersPlayers by Tony Wilson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

If you love footy (AFL) with all your heart, and you detest The Footy Show and all its ilk as much as I do, then you will enjoy Players immensely. Funny, squirm inducingly gross, and with more than a touch of criminal activity, manipulation, and sleeze, Players is a well-written extrapolation on the lives of some of the stars of footy shows of the past and the present.
This one comes with a language warning for the younger readers amongst us, but adults should have no problem chortling their way through this barnstormer of a novel. I found myself using the voices of some of my more ‘disliked’ footy show participants with great deal of satisfaction. There’s an old saying: power corrupts. absolute power corrupts absolutely: and it’s demonstrated beautifully here.
