Ex-player Joel Wilkinson has accused the Australian Football League of racism and said he plans to lodge a claim with the Australian Human Rights Commission.
Wilkinson http://www.officiallightningprostore.com/authentic-adidas-mikhail-sergachev-jersey , who was born in Sydney and is of Nigerian descent, played 26 matches in the top-flight national league for the Gold Coast Suns from 2011 to 2013.
"I'm here because I won't be silenced anymore and what has happened has been a continuous breach of human rights," Wilkinson said while reading from a statement on Thursday. "I have suffered extreme racism during my time in the AFL and post my career."
Wilkinson, who had unsuccessful tryouts at cornerback with the NFL's Arizona Cardinals and New York Giants, said he was racially abused by an opposing player during his first AFL game for Gold Coast in 2011.
The following year, he said was racially abused by a supporter of the Collingwood club during a match in Melbourne.
He didn't get another contract after leaving the Suns after the 2013 season Nicklas Backstrom Jersey , although he did feature in a "Making A Stand" video produced by the AFL's media department in 2014 where he discussed the devastating impact racism had on his career. The video was part of the AFL's 2014 club education program, which the league said was designed "to promote safe, welcoming and inclusive environments for everyone involved in football."
Other players, including Sydney Swans star Adam Goodes, who has Aboriginal heritage and has won an Australian of the Year honor for his work against racism, have been the target of a racist slurs while playing in the top level of the league.
Wilkinson's lawyer Will Barsby said two other former players had made contact following Wilkinson's recent accusations against the league http://www.officialwild.com/authentic-adidas-matt-dumba-jersey , but didn't identify the players and said it was unclear whether the two also wanted to take legal action.
Barsby said Wilkinson lost his place at the Suns because he became too much trouble.
"He was labelled as a grandstander ... Joel experienced much racism during his time (in the AFL) and that has been documented publicly," Barsby said. "That became a problem and like any workplace, sometimes an employer doesn't want to keep that perceived problem child around."
The AFL issued a statement saying it respected "a person's right to pursue claims through the legal system", while noting it was sorry Wilkinson had been racially abused during his time as a footballer.
"We will continue to work with Joel to resolve this matter," the AFL statement said.
Australian rules was developed in the late 1850s and has similarities to Ireland's Gaelic football, but uses an oval-shaped ball and teams comprising 18 players score points by kicking the ball between four upright posts at each end of the field.
The Victorian Football League was formed in 1896 and eventually became the Australian Football League when the competition expanded across the country. It remains the only professional Australians Rules league in the world.
Wilkinson had a background in track and field before taking up Aussie rules later in high school. He was a member of the Suns squad when the club first joined the AFL in 2011.
Hockey players have changed over the years. Gone are the days of a bunch of hooligans with dad bods and thick moustaches beating each other with wooden clubs. The Hockey players of today's NHL are among the most fit athletes in the world Mika Zibanejad Jersey , needing to play a fast game on a long schedule. They are also constantly moving on the ice and have to give their all every single shift if they hope to win anything.
Hockey players are studs, this we know. They are a different kind of weird when compared to athletes in other sports. And yet聽they are amongst the most talented 鈥?think of their craft... it's essentially full speed full contact stick wizardry on ice. Despite this, many of them tend to be soft spoken, humble guys who just like taking it easy in the off-season and drinking out of Lord Stanley's Cup when they can. These gentle creatures with their long playoff beards and smelly equipment just happen to be some of the most incredible athletes on earth.
Great talent can sometimes聽mask聽not so great looks, and there's no better example of this than NHL players. Guys who definitely 'outkicked their coverage' in the Puck Bunny department. For others, perhaps they could have aimed higher. We'll touch on that Womens Clay Matthews Jersey , but I warn you in advance: Even聽those聽guys done pretty well for themselves!
