There's another side to Australian Football League legends such as Jason Dunstall, Shane Crawford, and James Hird, not to mention Kevin Sheedy's little quirks. Have you heard the story about the time Sheeds had to play the part of one of the Three Little Pigs? Or how hysterical chickens found their way into Bomber Thompson's new car during training? Who put white powder in the Essendon doctor's bag that was then detected at the airport? And why is John Platten a 'footy-trip legend'? Paul Salmon, the Big Fish, knows the answers and reveals them in this collection of the funniest incidents that have happened on and off the field in his long football career. From practical jokes at training nights to an unexpected encounter on Sydney's Oxford Street, from the problems he has encountered pursuing an occasional television career to the difficulties of being a father, his stories will have you laughing out loud.
