I broke some bones and I copped some head knocks. But if I had my time again I would not change a thing.' Three premierships, three club best - and - fairests, two All Australian selections and a Coleman Medal: Jonathan Brown knows footy, and he has stories to tell. Browny grew up around country football clubs and could swear like a trooper by the age of four. By the time he was taken by the Brisbane Lions under the father - son rule, he'd developed the ability to train (and party) hard. At twenty, he'd already claimed a starring role in the Lions' golden era under Leigh Matthews. In his fifteen years playing football at AFL level, Browny earned the respect of the entire football community for his fearlessness, his imposing style of play and his strong leadership. He reveals what goes on behind the scenes at an elite football club, the sacrifices made in pursuit of success and what it was like to pull the plug on the career he loved. One of the best power forwards of the last decade and a great character, Jonathan Brown has become the people's champion. This is his story, warts and all.
