Youth and high school football should go to flag this fall. For public and student health. Will save money and headaches for principals. Could also recruit new families into game, given concerns about tackle injuries.

Great article by @TomFarrey in @sbjsbd this week about what’s next for community sport in the US. The four ways ‘Sports Can Help Rebuild America’ is a must read. @alacria supports all efforts to get more kids playing & initiatives to increase investment in community facilities.

What a wonderful outcome for football, the @FIFAWWC is coming to Australia and NZ in 2023. Congrats to the bid team. Bring it on! #asone

Whatever code you follow, it’s been a difficult year for footy fans. Here’s hoping we get to celebrate tomorrow & FIFA announces the 2023 Women’s World Cup will be hosted in Aus & NZ. That would give us a great way to promote women’s sport and better gender equality. @AsOne2023
