Victoria will offer a state funeral for AFL legend Ron Barassi after sad death, aged 87

Ron Barassi’s family will be offered a state funeral to honour the Australian sporting icon.

Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews confirmed the gesture will be made after Barassi died on Saturday aged 87.

Andrews joined Prime Minister Anthony Albanese and the AFL community in paying tribute to Barassi, with league chairman Richard Goyder calling him the game’s most important figure since World War II.

He is affectionately known as ‘The Godfather’ of Australian Football and is credited with changing the way the game is played.

The 1970 grand final is a Barassi masterstroke with the Carlton coach ordering his troops to ‘handball, handball, handball’ after they were 44 points down at half-time. They stormed home to defeat Collingwood by 10 points in a game that is now etched into Australian Rules folklore.

The premier also noted that Barassi died the day after a hard-fought semi-final between Carlton and Melbourne, two of the four clubs where the player and coach is revered for his contribution.

“The word legend is used a lot. But nobody deserves it quite like Ron Barassi,” Andrews said in a social media post.

“He didn’t just play the game – he reshaped it.

“And how fitting that (Friday) night’s game was a cliffhanger between the Dees and the Blues.

“The government will offer Ron’s family a state funeral to remember him – and I hope they accept.”

The family has asked for privacy and are yet to accept the offer at this stage.

Players and fans gave Barassi a standing ovation at Adelaide Oval and there was a short period of silence before Saturday night’s Port Adelaide-GWS semi-final.

Barassi played 253 senior VFL games in his career, including 204 for Melbourne and 49 for Carlton.

Between playing and coaching, Barassi claimed 10 premierships at Melbourne, Carlton and North Melbourne.

Only fellow Demons great Norm Smith, who coached Barassi, has as many flags in his Australian Rules playing and coaching career.

Barassi is a seminal figure in the history of four clubs – as a premiership player and later coach at Melbourne, as a premiership coach at Carlton, the coach of North Melbourne’s first two flags and the man who coached Sydney when the club was on its knees.

His life featured some of the game’s most famous memories and Goyder noted that he was famous around the country long before the VFL became the national AFL.

When his father and fellow Melbourne player Ron Barassi Snr was killed at Tobruk in 1941 during World War Two, the Demons pledged to support Barassi and his mother.

Eventually, after lobbying from Melbourne, he became one of the game’s first father-son recruits and he debuted for Melbourne at 17.

He played in six Melbourne premierships and reinvented the playing role of ruck-rover.

He stunned the game by leaving Melbourne for Carlton after the 1964 season. Until Barassi made the move, players rarely changed clubs.

His decision is regarded as the moment when the then-VFL left its amateur origins.

Barassi coached Carlton to two premiership and he coached North Melbourne to their first premierships in 1975 and ‘77 . He returned to Melbourne as coach in the early ‘80s, without success.

He was lured out of retirement to coach Sydney in 1993 when the club was on its knees and he laid some of the groundwork for the Swans’ grand final appearance under Rodney Eade in 1996.

On New Year’s Day in 2009, Barassi went to the aid of a woman being attacked in the street by a group of men who then turned on the AFL legend, leaving him with serious head injuries.

He received an Australian Bravery Award for his actions.

Channel 7 statement on Ron Barassi

The Seven Network has paid tribute to Ron Barassi, 87, one of the 12 original Legends of the Australian Football Hall of Fame, following his passing.

Managing Director Seven Melbourne and Head of Network Sport, Lewis Martin, said: “The entire football community has lost a true legend of the game, and a great Australian whose contribution to the sport of Australian football in this country can never be adequately measured.

“Ron’s career was peerless in so many ways. He was a revolutionary of the game both on the field and off, and we can also be thankful for his extraordinary contributions to football broadcasting on Channel 7 during the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s.

“Ron valued and understood the role of broadcasting in the growth of AFL and was one of the game’s greatest champions.

“We extend our deepest sympathies to the Barassi family and loved ones at this difficult time.”
