"We seek to support fans and further the exposure of the most exciting game in the world, Australian Football, in North America."

Update 3/01/21: Apologies to fans looking for TV schedules. Our staff has continued to be disrupted by illness. We do have word on Fox sports coverage for US fans: Fox and the AFL remain in negotiations for a new contract and once an agreement is reached, we expect coverage to return on Fox. We'll try to get updated schedules for Canada done this week. It goes without saying - we can use more volunteers. We exist because of generous donations from fans. We need your support. Live match listings are posted to Facebook and Twitter each week. We now have our radio info available on a Google Calendar - see the radio page for details (though info from the AFL on radio coverage has been delayed some weeks). Our schedules are free for personal use. Reuse, reposting, etc. on any other media must credit AFANA.

He has notched over 1000 games, including 20 Grand Finals; and formed a great partnership with the equally legendary Dennis Cometti (who retired several years ago). Although he is bowing out of football, he will continue with Seven's horse racing carnival and the 2021 Tokyo Olympics - his specialty is track and field.
