Reference_ Sporting Life Magazine - Team of the Year 1947-1955

Introduction

The 'Sporting Life' Magazine was a popular sport magazine published nationally from March 1947 to January 1957. The magazine pioneered the concept of the "All-Australian" team. Official teams would come later. Firstly they were linked to the ANFC carnivals between the Leagues and appeared only in the year that a carnival was held. More recently the AFL has announced the team.

Peter Argent published his research on the Sporting Life teams on the fullpointsfooty website and his article, now archived by the National Library is worth a read. Rather than commenting on the teams as Peter does, the lists appear here so that they can be tagged and cross-referenced from the player pages on this site.
