I’ll give you my perspective on a unique story in our great Indigenous game.


Phil Tagell is an ordinary footy fan and grass-roots volunteer who stood up for an injured player denied the aid of the stretcher when he was accidentally knocked unconscious in an under 18 practice game in early 2009. For his efforts, he was king-hit by the umpire who denied the player the use of the stretcher. This is the story of what ensued.

Read his story from his earliest days as a Magpies’ supporter in Melbourne to his significant contribution to the game in Queensland and you will be shocked that he has been treated so shabbily as his book suggests.
