The Club The Club concentrates on the politics of an Australian Rules football club People usually only see the players in action the huge crowds cheering their chosen team to a win but this film exposes the wheeling and dealing that takes place behind the scenes in the boardroom between club executives coaches and players This film is all about the stereotypical Australian male in the 1980s with their ocker Aussie accents stringent values and even the way they appear and not to mention the killer Mullets and short shorts Theres no knocking these boys over with a feather these are tough footy blokes The Collingwood football club bids and subsequently pays highly for a new young recruit at a high price causing an initial conflict between top club executives and the coach The move spills into the press forcing the conflict public and the coachs future becomes shaky within the club The teams players then become involved causing the whole club into distress with strikes threatened and insults get passed all around The whole tradition of the club is re-examined as times change and suddenly what is more important to an individual player is highly valued This disruptive period is what causes the main problems The club president nearly forces himself into bankruptcy to keep players as they demand more money although they had since playing there completely on good will of the club The Club is a very parochial film and one can feel what it is to be Australian The film really promotes the essence of Australian culture through its focus on an Aussie way of life which when thought about Football just is Football in Australia is something that tends to be part of life however The Club gives us a view into the way a football club really functions along side with all the drama and politics that go with it
