Racism is embedded deeply in the foundations of the Australian society and is easily recognisable in many aspects of social life. It is an institutional problem planted within the history of colonisation, continually nurtured, that still flourishes visibly today. Racism in sport has been highlighted in the media over the past 20 years, involving Aboriginal players in both major football codes, the National Rugby League (NRL) and the Australian Football League (AFL). More recent reporting on racial incidents in these codes provides evidence that racism continues to thrive amongst players, coaching staff, administrative staff and spectators. This racism negates the ageold adage of fair play and a level playing field for every footballer.
