Synopsis

Malcolm Blight is as famous for his mercurial nature as he is for his footy and his coaching. Hes been a fixture on the Aussie Rules scene since he began playing for the Woodville FC in the SANFL in the late 1960s. In the 1970s he joined North Melbourne FC and made his mark as a consistently brilliant player, who twice played in a premiership side. He was the first player to win both the Magarey and Brownlow medals, the only player to top both the SANFL and VFL goalkicking lists, and the only player to captain both Victorian and South Australian representative sides. He was also an equally brilliant but also controversial coach, with stints at North Melbourne and Woodville as a player coach, and at Geelong, Adelaide and St Kilda as a senior coach. His career has been marked by success and drama in equal portion, but both friends and enemies revere him as a legend. He is currently a sports commentator on Channel Ten and board member of the new Gold Coast Suns FC. This authorised biography, by AFL legend Tim Watson, is a first.
