Tigers star Pickett to tell all in new book
Richmond premiership star Marlion Pickett will tell the story behind his Grand Final fairytale, having signed a book deal for his life story.
Grand Final six days after being best on ground in the club's VFL Grand Final win.
For Pickett, a father of four, that week of glory had been years in the making as he suffered injuries, a tragic death in the family and rebuilt his life after time in jail.
"I couldn't change my past but I could change me.
"Family is the most important thing to me, and football gave me a second family," said Pickett.
The book, titled Belief, will be released by Simon & Schuster in November.
