Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The AFL Hall of Fame Tribute Match was a one-off all-star game between two representative sides organised by the Australian Football League to celebrate the 150th anniversary of Australian rules football. The match was intended to celebrate the contribution of State of Origin (and to a lesser extent interstate matches) to the history of the code. The match was played on 10 May 2008 at the Melbourne Cricket Ground in Melbourne, Australia between Victoria (the "Big V") and the "Dream Team" with a crowd of 69,294 in attendance. For nearly two years, the AFL had toyed with the idea of bringing back the State of Origin series, a series which the league had itself abandoned in 1999 only a few years before it had dissolved the Australian National Football Council to govern the game at national level. The AFL had pushed for a national club competition and argued that State of Origin was not in its interests.show more
