TV personality and model Jesinta Campbell has spoken powerfully in support of her fiancé Buddy Franklin's teammate Adam Goodes, thanking the Swans star for creating a better world for her future children.
Campbell is the latest high-profile Australian to come out in defence of Goodes, who has been at the centre of a raging controversy about whether booing the player on the field is related to his racial background or the way he plays.
23-year-old Campbell, who got engaged to Franklin in December, has spoken before about how her children will have Aboriginal heritage through Franklin's mother Urshula.
Campbell's strong message to Goodes is being praised on social media.
Buddy Franklin hasn't commented publicly over the latest incident, but described the racism targeted at Goodes last year as "devastating".
As the debate drags into another day, AFL captains have issued a statement calling on crowds to stop booing and jeering all players, and celebrate diversity instead.
There'll be many people hoping that the latest plea from the AFL is enough to bring some joy back into the game and get Goodesy out on the field once again.
