Braham mentions here that he started to write about sport, and study it. [Braham has been a world leader in the field of professional players’ unions across codes and countries. It was a privilege and pleasure to work with him on the VFL Players’ Association HIstory – and to continue to publish him here on the Almanac site – JTH]
