According to Bill Kelty, AFL SportsReady Chairman and Co-founder, getting governmental support for the program was no easy task."The power brokers initially didn't believe that football and sport in general was an 'industry' said Kelty."They told us (Kelty, Kevin Sheedy and Lindsay Fox) that it wouldn't last - that you couldn't build an employment industry in sport, that sport was just for exercise, not something you could forge a career in".However, guided by Kelty's trademark persistence, the founders eventually gained the support required and the rest is history.
