Late to the ball on women’s role in footy

“F this was a shirtfront it came very hard. It was well aimed, too. But it was also delivered too late, much too late. AFL chief executive officer Andrew Demetriou is on report.

Demetriou has finally tackled the issue of the role of women in football. It is not that the league has been inflexible on the matter. It has scripted a policy for respect and responsibility towards women and trumpets the document as ground-breaking. But that does not mean it is effective or taken seriously. Ground-breaking just means the AFL is very pleased with itself.”

First cricket, now football. One can only hope that this is the start of something big.
