A Legend Passes

The Axemen want to express their thoughts on the passing of Arthur Beetson. “Big Artie” was a TRUE legend in a world where the word is used way too often. For the Americans who read this, the closest NFL player I can think of would be Walter Payton or Joe Montana. If there was ever a man who you would want to promote as a role model in sports, Artie Beetson would be it. Google Arthur Beetson and try and comprehend just how great he was for a sport and a champion of Indigenous Australians. RIP Mr. Arthur Beetson.
