Greatness free pdf Author Scott Gullan delves inside the premiership year that stamped Geelong as one of modern football's outstanding football clubs. Over a five-season rebirth, the Geelong Football Club elevated itself from perennial bridesmaid to competition powerhouse. Three premierships from four Grand Finals marked that incredible span of success - no team has ever won so many games of football across such a sustained period. The Cats punctuated this success with an unlikely 2011 flag that came after the highly controversial exit of their best player, Gary Ablett, and their coach, Mark Thompson. The departure of both men was notable for ongoing drama and bad blood, be it internal turmoil, fans' claims of treachery or comment on the mercenary nature of professional football. Countless players stepped up to fill the breech left by the departure of Ablett and, in Thompson's place, the club handed the reins to untried coach Chris Scott, who made an impact from day one of his coaching journey. Highly respected Melbourne journalist Scott Gullan, author of The Mission and The Mission 2, now returns to Kardinia Park to complete the picture of a club that defied reason to remain at the head of the pack. Gullan chronicles the year that unfolded, including: * Gary Ablett's extraordinary decision to turn his back on his hometown Cats and sign with new AFL club, the Gold Coast Suns. * Coach Mark Thompson's walkout on the club, despite denials of his intentions just 24 hours before his decision to quit. * The heartbreak for veterans Darren Milburn and Cameron Mooney, two-time premiership players whose bodies denied them a glorious final chapter in their careers. * The plotting of the downfall of reigning premier, the Cats' 2010 conqueror who seemingly had Geelong's measure entering the season.
