  • AGAINST ALL ODDS

    Against All Odds is a  pictorial record of the Western Bulldogs’ history-making season 2016. And what a season it was!! The story of the 2016 AFL season is one for the ages, with the Western Bulldogs breaking a premiership drought that stretched a long 62 years. Players, coaches and fans alike have endured countless broken dreams since the Dogs last triumphed in 1954, as they have fallen short of an elusive flag many times over. But, in 2016, as the club formerly known as Footscray, garnered unprecedented support and goodwill from across the nation, the long wait for a premiership finally ended in October 2016.  One of the most remarkable aspects of the Western Bulldogs’ 2016 season, is that a flag rarely seemed possible at any stage along the way.  The team suffered injury after injury which in turn presented seemingly insurmountable hurdles for the Dogs’ aiming for another grab of football’s silverware. Against All Odds tells the story, through photographs selected from of official AFL Media, and from the Bulldogs’ collection, of the Bulldogs’ ‘impossible’ season, from the hard slog of pre-season training on sweltering summer days, to the moment coach Luke Beveridge and captains Easton Wood and Bob Murphy lifted the premiership cup at last on Grand Final day. Chronicling a tale of heartache, hope and ultimately unbridled joy, AGAINST ALL ODDS captures the defining moments of the Bulldogs’ 2016 season — including a finals campaign that saw them as underdogs in every final.  They battled against more experienced teams week after week, from one side of the country to another, as they overcame each and every setback to achieve a goal that many, if not most, thought impossible.
