"I think the biggest thing at the moment, the AFL and the players association along with the football clubs are doing at the moment is really creating environments that are very welcoming to Aboriginal players. And we're seeing a lot of indigenous players that are getting drafted from anywhere in Australia which is fantastic and that's the way it should be."
