Tom Elliott says the AFL should stay away from gay pride and other political messages

This weekend the AFL will host a special gay pride match, showing their support for the LGBTI community.

Tom Elliott says the AFL should leave it alone.

‘Footy is simply that, footy, why make it bigger than what it is?’

‘I don’t want to be lectured, I don’t want a political message.’

‘I don’t care if it’s about indigenous culture or gay players or multiculturalism or women’s issues or whatever.’ – Tom Elliott said on 3AW Drive. 

‘We can talk about those sort of things on this program, and we do.’
