• Inspiring the future: Strong, Fierce and Bold.

    AFL players are very persistent and hardworking. As soon as the season finishes, they only have two weeks off, then they're straight back into it. This shows kids not to give up, and the importance of working hard to achieve your goals.

    As elite sportspeople, they are constantly monitoring their diet. Healthy living is a really important thing for kids to be involved with and aware of. 78% of Australia's population is overweight. No one in the AFL is overweight, so the more the kids see of these gleaming gods the healthier they'll want to be.

    Plenty of younger kids interested in footy look up to them. They're very prominent in society, constantly being on TV. It's a popular sport in Australia, something unique to our country. They're generous with their time in interacting with fans. They came to visit our classroom last term to show us their skills and teach the younger students about football. These footballers show country kids that it's possible to make it in the big city, without forgetting their roots.

    Even though they do fight, the players are just showing emotion and passion, modelling that being a man doesn't always prevent you being passionate.

    Overall, I believe that AFL players are excellent role models for our younger generations, who after all are the future.

  • AFL Footballers as Role Model

    AFL Footballers are good role models. It all depends on who the person is and what they are doing in their life because other people on television can see them. If they live an honest life, and show love, care and compassion for others then I believe that they are good role models and people can look upon them.

  • AFL Footballers can be good role models.

    Every parent has the responsibility to their children to be knowledgeable in who they support and endorse. Any professional can be a role model, but not every professional can be a role model. Parents must meticulously monitor who their children look up to, and at proper time endorse or rebuke that role model.

  • Footballers Aren't All Good.

    Some Footballers fall into supplements and drugs and alcohol. A lot of fighting and rough conduct has nowadays footy players stranding in a new controversy. Footballers in all their athleticism is great but the stuff we don't see is not usually great. Footballers like the picture of this debate shows a group fighting, whenever something like this happens in the middle of a game notice that the camera usually starts to focus on the fight. Is this the way to go?
