Australian Football League partnershipsThe TAC has had partnerships with the Australian Football League and its teams to help road safety messages reach audiences at a grass-roots level. Most famously, the TAC was the major sponsor of Richmond for 16 years through the "Drink, drive, bloody idiot" campaign, which saw the "Drink drive" message displayed on the team's jerseys which was terminated when a Richmond player was caught drink-driving. The TAC also sponsored Essendon from 1994 until 2000 with the "Do not fool yourself, speed kills" campaign, and Collingwood from 2002 until 2006 with the "Wipe off 5" message.â â â â â âAustralian footballNathan Bassett, Adelaide, type 1.

The reason head injuries are a big concern is that they relate to an increased probability to developing forms of cognitive impairment such as; depression and dementia later in life. .â â â â â âAustralian Football International CupThe Australian Football International Cup (also known as the AFL International Cup) is an international sport competition in Australian rules football, currently contested by amateur players only. It is currently co-ordinated by the Australian Football League's game development arm and has been run every three years since 2002. The tournament is the largest international Australian rules football event and the only one that is open to worldwide senior competition, except for Australia in the men's tournament: since Australia is the only nation where the sport is played professionally, the difference in skill level between an Australian national team and the nearest competitor would currently be far too large for any contest to be competitive. As such, the tournament is geared towards development of the sport outside Australia and expatriate Australians are ineligible to compete, with the exception of the women's OzIM team, which is composed of indigenous and multicultural Australians. The inaugural tournament was the 2002 Australian Football International Cup run by the International Australian Football Council under the auspices of the Australian Football League, which then assumed full control with the winding up of the IAFC. The Cup was originally for male participants only, but in 2011 a women's competition was established. After some suggestions the tournament would be run every four years, the AFL is currently maintaining the three-year cycle. The grand final of each men's tournament has been held as a curtain raiser to a home-and-away match of the AFL premiership season. Currently there are efforts to help raise the event's profile by broadcasting the 2017 International Cup on SBS, an organisation devoted to multicultural, multi-lingual entertainment. Grant Williamsâ â â â â âAustralian Football Hall of FameThe Australian Football Hall of Fame was established in 1996, the Centenary year of the Australian Football League, to help recognise the contributions made to the sport of Australian rules football by players, umpires, media personalities, coaches and administrators. It was initially established with 136 inductees. As of 2014, this figure has grown to 257, including 27 "Legends". While those involved in the game from its inception in 1858 are theoretically eligible, as of 2020, very few outside the major leagues (the Australian Football League (VFL/AFL), the West Australian Football League (WAFL), the South Australian National Football League (SANFL) and the pre-1897 Victorian Football Association (VFA/VFL)) have been recognised.â â â â â âCentral Coast Australian Football LeagueThe Central Coast Australian Football League was an Australian rules football league based in the Central Coast region of New South Wales, Australia that was active from 1976 until 1999. The CCAFL was founded in 1976 when interest of Australian rules football began developing on the Central Coast, a region just north of Sydney, although the sport in the region was played earlier. The Gosford Australian Football Club was founded in 1971, the first and oldest Aussie rules club on the Central Coast, and played in the Newcastle Australian Football League and played their first season in 1972, fielding teams in First and Second grades. It remained there until 1975 when it was decided that the Central Coast needed its own Australian rules football competition. The competition began in 1976 and consisted of 5 teams: Gosford, Narara-Wyoming, Terrigal, The Lakes and Woy Woy. The number of teams continued to grow from 1978 when Killarney Vale were founded and joined the league, playing their first season the same year. Narara-Wyoming disbanded the following year, in 1979. Bateau Bay was founded in 1984 and North Central Coast joined the league in 1995. North Central Coast, known as the Kangaroos, folded after the 1996 season. The number of teams rose from 5 to 8 in 19 years, each club supporting junior and senior teams in different age groups. After the 1999 season, the league merged with the Newcastle Australian Football League to form the Black Diamond Australian Football League.
