Description

'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.

About Jonathan Brown

Jonathan Brown is a three-time premiership player and Brisbane Lions champion who captained the club from 2007 to 2013. Known for his courage, strength and imposing style of play, Jonathan Brown is regarded as one of the best power forwards of the last decade. Brown grew up in Warrnambool, and was a Vic Country representative at Under-16 and Under-18 levels. He made his debut for the Lions in 2000, having been drafted under the father-son rule. In 2001, his first full season, he became a premiership player before he turned twenty, and two more flags followed in 2002 and 2003. Throughout Brown's 256-game career he received many awards and accolades, including the Coleman Medal in 2007, two All-Australian selections, AFLPA Best Captain, three Merrett-Murray Medals and three Robert Rose Awards for Most Courageous Player. His career was dogged by serious injuries, often a by-product of his fearlessness. He retired midway through the 2014 season after yet another concussion. Jonathan Brown is one of the most popular and credible media personalities covering the AFL.
