The boss of the AFL Players' Association Paul Marsh has no issue with elite footballers' wages being made public similar to professional American sports leagues.

AFL footballers are against the idea to follow the lead of the NFL, NBA, MLB and NHL to disclose player salaries due to potential public scrutiny, but Marsh believes it could lead to bigger pay packets.

"I would have no issue with that. The players themselves do have an issue with it. The industry probably needs to have a mature debate on that one," he told AFL Trade Radio.
