Tom Elliott has criticised the AFL’s decision to dump skinfold testing on draft prospects due to fears the test is a form of “body-shaming” and could fuel mental health issues among young footballers.

But Tom Elliott says keeping in shape is all part of being a professional athlete.

The AFL directive has reportedly left several club recruiters bewildered.

“You can measure how fast they run, how high they jump, how well they can mark the ball – all that sort of thing – but you can’t measure whether their body fat is at an acceptable level?” the 3AW Drive host said in response to the reports.
