Why did we adore Lionel Rose but hope Mundine gets sat on his arse? Why did we love Polly Farmer and Syd Jackson but dislike Adam Goodes? Because we are Australian! We are racially agnostic and we are colour blind. We can choose who we will like and we will always give everyone of every race and colour a fair go providing we are given a fair go in return.

Mundine runs his finger across his throat and Goodes simulates throwing spears at us in a specially invented war dance. And we are supposed to respect that sort of bullshit?

We are fair dinkum Australians, we’ll buy you a beer and pick you up when you’re down. We’ll shout you a feed and drive you home when you’re pissed, you will never have a better friend for life… but if you choose to crap on us then expect a full tank of sewage around your neck in return.

We know what’s fair.

I have worn the red and white of “The Bloods” for most of my playing career. Right down to St George and the lowly Woy Woy Swans where I retired at near 50 after my son had played in the centre for the same team for ten years planting balls on my chest at full forward.

I’m a Swan fan through and through and at one time, when they were millions in debt, I was negotiating to buy them, before Mike Willesee put together a consortium.

So when one of the most talented indigenous players ever (one of many) joined the club it was an exciting time. But that incident with a 13 year-old girl changed everything for ever. We saw the vindictive, nasty Goodes. The Goodes, regardless of his talent, Australians will not cop, and they showed it.  

So who has chased Goodes out of the game? It was the very people who excused his provocative and insulting bullshit.

We made him Australian of the Year only to be told we were racists. The media’s support of him only emboldened him further, so he figured it was okay to rubbish his fellow Australians as “invaders”… that it was okay to demand that a schoolgirl be removed from the MCG for calling him a name.

Well, it’s not okay! It’s bloody un-Australian and we fair dinkum Australians wrote him off from that point on. He never apologised to that little girl so that little girl never had the opportunity to apologise to him.

But it can be resolved, he can play again to cheers instead of boos… we can again enjoy his talent, shake his hand and be proud of his Aboriginality. It will take those who love to bathe in the warm glow of their own political correctness, along with the dumb AFL and the Left media to shut the fuck up and allow the arbiters of the sport, the crowds, to sort it.

All it will take is for Goodes to do a Bronwyn and apologise for doing what he did. I know, you know, and every fair dinkum Aussie knows we are the best forgivers around. Then he can run on to the field to cheers and applause with nary a boo to be heard. That’s what Aussie crowds really want and Aussie crowds, as one, are the best at knowing what’s fair.

What Goodes did was wrong and insulting and he has a window of opportunity to resolve it for the sake of the game. We said sorry, now it’s his turn. We would all love to see him back as a player and not as an Aboriginal activist. He can save that for his political career rather than bring it on to our sporting fields.

But I fear Goodes would much rather wallow in his hatred of “invaders” than return to what we admired him for and what he is best at.

And that's a shame.

The Indigenous community has been scrambling to get aggressive dance moves into their traditional repertoire so they can intimidate at will at any public event and justify it as a cultural dance.Watch and you will see it within 1 Month, although I would go out on a limb and say a week.Along with a high profile release and propaganda campaign, of course paid for by YOU.

What Adam just DOESN’T understand is that we are Booing HIM (Not his colour)
He DESERVES to be Booed because He is a Big Black Bully and he would be Booed if he was Green or Purple or WHITE!
He bullied a Little Girl who called him an Ape, Not a BLACK Ape. and YES he Looks and ACTS just like an APE.!!!
She wasn’t being RACIST – HE decided to Take it THAT Way.

Going back to the 70’s, before the AFL, the SANFL was the second league in Oz to the VFL. I was recently present at a meeting of two of the most loved players of that time (from my club, Central District). “G’day Midnight”, “Sally, you Pommy Bastard”, and Black embraced White, both colourblind, as were the Central supporters, and both were indifferent to comments from the opposition supporters (no sustained boos though, just stirring). What a difference between those real men, their match payments a small top-up on their full-time job salaries, and tis massively paid, pampered sook.

As an older white indigenous Australian I grew up with the VFL now AFL code. I number many aboriginal players among my favourites; Adam Goodes used to one of them. I won’t be at all surprised if he pops up in a safe Labor seat somewhere after football. I think only a fraction of those booing are racially motivated. I suspect the comments he made after his Aussie of the year gong annoyed many people. Maybe they boo because they think he’s a tool….

Well Said Larry. Lionel Rose was Special. Mundine is nothing but a trouble maker and should learn to also shut his mouth. Adam Goodes as well. This is only the beginning of these troubles we will have in this country, if They are included in the constitution. No matter what the colour or the amount of coloured blood, we are all supposed to be AUSTRALIANS. Our Current Flag Is For All and Should Also Be Left Alone.

You all debate all you like. But as we discussed earlier about the vpn. I just hit the same problem, re google, the robot thingo, so clicked on the vpn, being routed out of the USA. I cancelled vpn and now things are back to normal, and this computer is faster than it was. Maybe the vpn was a hacking thing, because many here use it. How better to gather your info ? If you use a vpn, you info can be gathered in the country you rout your connection through.

Yes, people were locked out, and as dodo says, when people started posting about vpn that’s how I got back on, it worked. It had nothing to do with being banned. Even tonight, after the site was down for awhile, I went to google ‘Angus Houston’ and had to prove I wasn’t a robot, as some unusual activity had been detected on my computer, but I had only been here, news sites and the TAB all day. Go figure.

I’m going to drop out of the infighting, unless I am personally attacked. I’m sorry to those I’ve stirred up in the past, except old IE, I’m starting to hate him with a vengeance. I didn’t always get banned, I just came back in as someone else to get the arsehole off my back. But I couldn’t not respond to his shit when as a new poster he had a go at me. And Goldi and OR, you two seem to have exchanged email addresses with other posters at some stage, I don’t think anyone has been hacked, it’s probably… Read more »

Buggar! Just saw the QBE logo on his shirt. That’s my insurance company. I will now have to think about how I can voice my displeasure about their support of this tosser without jeopardising any future claims that I may have. And of course they would always find a way to disassociate my comments from their assessments. Oh! I could be BLACKlisted or should that read WHITElisted. Anyway. I’m WHITE INDIGENOUS and proud of it.

I am so fed up with all this bullshit being spouted over that arrogant damned Adam Goodes he good at handing out the crap but cant take the heat when the fans have had enough. As for him being named Australian of the Year who the heck decides that I certainly didn’t ! In fact he is the last person I would have chosen he didn’t and doesn’t deserve any accolades and certainly no “respect he hasn’t earned any. His behaviour has been and is disgraceful.

joylene

Totally agree (except for being a Swans supporter). Don’t forget others, albeit involved in politics, like Tony Bonner who tried to lift his race out of the victim mentality and those wonderful female elders, such as Imelda Cooney who fought to have child sexual abuse and domestic violence in their communities bought to public attention. I don’t hear or see anything that goode has done has contributed to alleviating these problems. Well, really why should he. He lives in luxury away from his people – the ones he supposedly represents. UnAustralian of the Year.

Just heard the PM (TA) on the radio today saying we “MUST” give respect to Goodes . So what’s next TA ? We must respect politicians ? We must respect billionaires ? We must respect anyone who plays sport better than us or has more money than us or has a different skin pigment or a hotter wife ??? RESPECT HAS TO BE EARNED !

What a great opportunity for the AFL to reinforce its belief that it conducts the competition on a level playing field. ANY AFL player who has a desire to direct an unsavoury gesture to opposing team fans may now do so without any fear of penalty.

Without a doubt,Goodes deserves all the ridicule he gets from the AFL fans.Will the AFl ban “Booing”next?We may soon know.If they do,how will the fans react?By staying home no doubt.Then the AFL players and assorted hangers on will have to look for another job.

I also loathe Indian men, the scumbags from India. Over here they are despised for their actions and what they do to the women. Lots of the girls on the streets are illegal workers (you should see them bolt when the police come around in a raid), thus have no protection, and one curry munching scumbag will work out a deal with a girl, they go back to his shitty stinking room (they shit and piss in the corners) and out jump 5 or 6 other curry munching scumbags. So basically a gang rape occurs but the girl can’t go… Read more »

I can admit it. I am a racist. I despise the vast majority of black Australians, not because the are black, but because they are dirty, disgusting, smelly, lazy, bludging, parasitical arseholes, sitting around all day, abusing invader types who won’t top up their black plagon monies by giving them some coin. They are worthless dregs of society. I also loathe any other dreg of society who is the same, sucking on the taxpayer teat, no matter their colour or ethnicity. So I am a multi-cultural, multi-colour racist. I make no bones about it. I just loathe and despise bludgers… Read more »

Oh give it up Kenny. Goodes, 2 flags, 2 Brownlows, that says it all really. He is, or was, he’s a bit past it now, a champion footballer, Nicky was a great footballer, but not in Goodes’s league. As a person though, Nicky is way above Goodes, who is nothing more than a sooky racist 1/4 black arsehole who bullied a child. A coward.

You last paragraph says it all Mr Pickering. I am a Wet Coast Eagles supporter, I love my team, we may be a bit noisy, but we have had the doom sayers on our but lots of time but we always come back and show the rest of AFL what football is. I would like Mr Goodes to say sorry, but I am afraid he won’t, to him that is giving into us, as you put it “invaders”. Sorry Nr Goodes, what goes around comes around.

I am waiting to see what happens next time Goodes appeared. Is there going to be security escorting anyone that boo’s out of the ground? Are people going to be asked to dob in anyone near them that boo’s? I can see that the rest of the public will walk out with them, as a protest against this political correctness wank that is going on. Then the AFL will really have a problem. No fans, no audience, but they are soooo impressed with themselves and their righteous attitudes. Of course the boos are not racist, it is the personality of… Read more »
