Andrew Krakouer - The Road To Redemption

Carrying the hopes of the Krakouer name made famous by father Jim and Uncle Phil for North Melbourne in the 1980s, Andrew Krakouer announced himself on the AFL stage in 2001. With great expectation Krakouer was a crafty goal sneak with an innate ability to judge the fall of the ball in the forward line Krakouer became a shining light through a dark period for the Richmond Football club. Krakouer's career would come to a grinding halt - a 16-month prison sentence ending his time at Richmond. In this episode Krakouer opens up about his time in prison, his road to redemption with Collingwood, his sacking from the Pies in 2013 and racism in Australian football.
