Balcony Banter: All in the family




The name Collins has been an integral part of the Melbourne Football Club for generations. Like us all, they couldn’t be at the ‘G’ this year to see the Demons break the drought. But they were certainly there in spirit.


Footy Almanac stalwart ‘Citrus’ Bob Utber recently chronicled the links between the family and the club.

We’ll do our best to publish two books in the lead-up to Christmas 2021. The Tigers (Covid) Almanac 2020  and the 2021 edition to celebrate the Dees’ magnificent premiership season(title is up for discussion at the moment!). These books will have all the usual features – a game by game account of the Tigers and Demons season – and will also include some of the best Almanac writing from these two Covid winters.
