Triple M Footy Pays Tribute To Ron Barassi

Ronald Dale Barassi, one of the greatest people in the history of footy, has passed away at the age of 87.

There could hardly have been a more deserving person to be anointed as the first ever Legend in the AFL Hall of Fame, with Barassi’s accolade-filled playing and coaching career speaking for itself.

Named as rover in the AFL team of the century, Barassi’s 254-game playing career yielded six premierships – five at Melbourne and one at Carlton – while his 515-game coaching career yielded a further four VFL flags.
