Take LGBTIQ politics out of the NRL

I am really concerned about a recent decision on behalf of the NRL to back the Yes campaign for the Marriage Law Postal Survey. 

As a former NRL player married for the past 12 years to my wife and with five children, I demand that the NRL reconsider its political position and remove LGBTIQ politics out of the awesome sport of Rugby League.

It will be very difficult to watch the NRL Grand Final with my wife and five young children as the event will be heavily politicised with a LGBTIQ anthem taking centre stage.

My family and many other loyal NRL fans, who are No voters, will not feel comfortable watching the Grand Final when the NRL is imposing such a bold political stance on its fans while the issue is currently being voted on by the Australian people.


Join with me in voicing your concern and demand that the NRL take a neutral position on the question of same-sex marriage.
