https://www.theage.com.au/sport/afl/nicky-winmar-statue-to-be-placed-in-perth-not-victoria-20180211-p4yzy4.htmlTwenty-five years on from his defiant response to the racist taunting of Collingwood fans, Nicky Winmar will have his iconic gesture imortalised with a bronze statue later this year.
The AFL has thrown its organisational and financial support behind the project, with the 1.5 x lifesize statue expected to cost more than $200,000.
Somewhat controversially, the statue will be placed at Perth's new Optus Stadium, despite lobbying to have it situated at either Victoria Park or Moorabbin.
Guess we just have to build our own, then.
