As part of the Australian Football 150 Years celebrations in 2008, The Slattery Media Group published The Australian Game of Football, on behalf of the AFL.

It is a definitive resource on the complete history of the world's oldest codified game of football. It is more than 400 pages and includes contributions from more than 23 authors including Australia's leading historians, academics and writers. The Australian Game of Football reflects on five themes:

The Beginning - historical analysis and commentary on the game's early days including its growth and spread.
The Game - including Mike Sheahan's top 50 players of all time, the top 10 players to have played in WA, SA and Tasmanian State Leagues, tactics, coaches, umpires, trends and Adam Goodes' essay on the indigenous contribution to the game.
The Passion - including an essay on the game belonging ultimately to the fans, football in the community, local clubs and the role of women.
The Business - commentary on the impact of the media, influential figures and strategy.
The Decades - including a snapshot of the game, decade by decade over 150 years, including ladder positions for all years for the VFA, WAFA and SANFL.
