Tayla Harris has responded to "negative comments" about her statue launched in Federation Square yesterday, explaining that the point of the statue isn't about her.
TAYLA HARRIS RESPONDS:
Harris had a statue of her iconic kicking action launched in Federation Square by NAB on Wednesday, with the statue subtitled 'More than a kick'.
She told Triple M's Rush Hour with JB and Billy the statue is in fact more than a kick, explaining it's not about her footballing achievements and instead creating conversation and movement behind the sport.
"It's completely more than about me," she said.
"I haven't done anything to warrant a statue as a footballer in my footballing achievements, but I have been involved in something that was a movement.
"I think if people who are clearly making negative comments asking why do I get a statue, I haven't done anything, all that sort of commentary, don't understand what the statue's for.
"Perhaps that's even more of the point of the statue is to create conversation."
