Debate rages over the relevance of a gay pride match in the AFLW

TOM ELLIOTT

Tom Elliott has clashed with the Bulldogs president over an upcoming pride match.

The Western Bulldogs and Carlton will play a gay pride match at Whitten Oval in round four of the AFLW season.

Bulldogs president Peter Gordon said it’s important because there are still a lot of people who feel excluded from football matches and clubs.

“The happiness that this creates, the sense of connection and involvement, was new for them,” Mr Gordon said.

But Tom said people don’t go to games to hear about social issues.

“I don’t like being served up a dose of morality with my footy,” he said.
