Stephen Alomes, who fits in being a writer, broadcaster, painter and Adjunct Professor in the Globalism Research Centre at RMIT University when he's not writing for World Footy News, has released a book many years in the making.

It captures his passion for Australian culture and its place in the context of globalism, specifically focusing on Australian Football.  Having been a regular at International Cups and writer for WFN, it's no surprise the book includes consideration of international footy.  The result is: Australian Fooball - The People's Game 1958-2058

It embraces the future, towards the 2058 bicentenary of the game, as well as exploring recent changes over the last 50 years.  In the preface Kevin Sheedy sees a future AFL match featuriing Los Angeles and London ("the Los Angeles Coyotes play the London Wolves for four points"), and David Parkin also enthuses about the book.
‘If you love Australian football, its past, its present and its future, then you have to read this book’ (Kevin Sheedy).

‘A book for generations of Aussie football lovers ... a great read for the real football addict' (ex Carlton coach David Parkin)
