    Please accept my apologies for this very important book launch.

    I’m off to Queensland driving and I don’t know where I’ll be!

  2. Yvette Wroby says

    Thanks Bob, enjoy the warmth. It will be a great night. The book looks terrific.

  3. Bob, please dip your thumbnail in tar and send a letter telling us where you are.

  4. Peter Fuller says

    I’m also a disappointed non-starter, because of a trip to the red centre. It’s evidently the season for aged Almanackers to flee Melbourne’s winter. Unfortunately I couldn’t work in a reference to Lawson or even the Banjo. Good luck for the launch, I’m sure that it will be a great night.

  5. Another disappointed absentee. The “Good Wife”booked a trip to sub tropical Hobart a month ago. I reckon it will be a great night.

  6. Paddy Grindlay says

    Will be there, going to be a fantastic night out.

  7. Tonight is the night! Let’s celebrate a brilliant inaugural season of AFLW and an amazing book that gives it the coverage it deserves.

  8. Bonnie Norman says

    Sounds like a wonderful night, wishing all the very best for great success of the book.
    Delighted to be involved in the publication.
    Long live women’s footy …

  9. Rick Kane says

    What a terrific launch and the book is a ripper of a read.

    Thanks Yvette, John, Steph and the North Fitzroy Arms. Oh, and Bobby was brilliant.

  10. Anne Myers says

    So much love flowing on Launch night.
    Bobby was brill. I can see you post match beer in hand!
    Jasmine did us women proud up on the chair hands on hips with a grin ear to ear.
    Thanks John and Yvette and Stephanie.
    And thank you to Leesa for your dedication to women’s football. You are amazing.
