An Australian Rules Football podcast, that looks at the history of the AFL/VFL. We start way back in 1897, and each episode will cover a different year.Enjoy hearing about the origin of the clubs, rivalries, players, finals systems, and much more.
The Coulthard Shield is a trophy we named in an earlier episode of our podcast and awarded to the team with the highest score of the season (including finals).
Naming of the shield
The shield is named after George Coulthard, a Carlton champion of the 1870’s. He was a 3× VFA leading goal-kicker: 1878, 1879, 1880, and a natural choice for the shield to be named after.
Coulthard was also a 3 time winner of the fictional "CC.Mullen Champion of the Colony award" in 1876, 1877, 1897.
