There’s nothing quite like footy nostalgia.
Everyone remembers the footy of their youth through rose-coloured glasses, when the shorts were small, the hits were big, the defending questionable and the goals plentiful.
One Facebook page — VFL AFL 20th Century History Photos Videos Memories — has taken to documenting the best memories from the older footy eras, including training reports, news stories, general highlights and more.
Perhaps the best stuff they put up though is old reports on teams’ Mad Mondays or Grand Final wins (some hosted by a very young Eddie McGuire!):
Naturally blokes like Tony Lockett, Jason Dunstall and Gary Ablett feature frequently:
You also get a good dose of Fitzroy stuff:
This page is very much worth your time if you’re a footy nostalgia junkie.
