For Fans of Australia’s Game
The second edition of 4Quarters has been released with a feast of fan-related content.
The edition includes yarns on food and floating fixtures and a feature on the Crows Supporters Group, whose members explain the effort they and other cheer squads put into making run-throughs.
Legendary social worker and Australian of the Year finalist Les Twentyman has produced a heartfelt piece on his footy journey. And we conduct an emotional interview with former Fremantle and Melbourne star Jeff White about his mental health journey to hell and back. Meanwhile, two-time Kangaroos Premiership player David King conjures the spirit of Fred Cook to recall his VFA playing days with Port Melbourne.

4Quarters edition #2
Jeff White has his mojo back.
And is putting it out there to help others – one message at a time. The former Melbourne star admits that he fell into a dark place after going through a major health crisis and several personal upheavals in the last few years.
But he dug himself out by mining the common sense lessons of persistence and resilience he learned as an AFL player. Now he is using those same tools to help others back from the brink, regain their self-identity and reset mind and body.
“I knew straight away I was shot. I had no self-esteem or self-identity.“
People power has won the day with the grand final returning to an afternoon delight.
Other features include:
- An investigation into the prevalence of gambling ads in sport
- An update on the push for a Tasmanian AFL team
- The latest AFLW developments
- Every footy player has a nickname, some are Crackers. We take a look at the very best.
- Stadium food around the world. Like a two sausage hot dog with teriyaki sauce, seaweed and scrambled egg toppings at Yokohama FC? What are we missing out on?

“We have our official photographer on the ground as well, we want to remember them all. Plus, we want people to remember to hold the pole or rope and not be fishing in pockets for phones.”
