Men’s T-shirt saga ‘not a political issue’ as sport is ‘escapism’

ARL Commission Chairman Peter V’landis says the Manly Pride jersey controversy is not a political issue as “sport is escapism.”

Mr V’landis said he was “the last person” who wants to use the sport for political purposes.

“We use sport to escape, we use it to have fun and have fun,” he told Sky News Australia.

“This is not a political issue.”
