For mine, it makes no difference whether Goodes is black, white or brindle.
If you're a ******** you're a ******** and that's what he comes across as.
Do you see Franklin or Natanui or Ablett carrying on like he does?
No, I hear you say.
That's because they're not ********s...

100% agree. I'm a bit of a Swans fan being a New South Welshman, but I'm more a Geelong fan, but I can't stand Goodes. He's a ********, and he needs to grow up. Seriously when I was driving this arvo and heard them say on the radio he was having some time off and wasn't at training due to the issue, I thought "you're ****ing kidding right? Seriously!" He makes me so ****ing angry when he whinges and bitches about racism. I very much agree that I don't care what colour he is, but what I do know is that he's a whinger.

Oh and for the record, calling him an ape might not even be racist. I mean he does kinda look like one, and that's certainly not due to his colour.

Redheads are called 'ranga' as a reference to orangutans, you don't hear them bleating on about being called 'apes', redheads have copped **** since time immortal, ask some of the redhead AFL players how 'ranga' has gone for them. Even Sam Newman has come out and called Goodes out

don't think we should be calling anyone an "ape" ..... but I don't think anyone should be doing a "war dance" during a footy game directed at the public either...do that in the EPL and it would be a life ban

No we shouldn't, but it happens, what ever happened to 'Sticks n Stones'

The guy is a very sad example of a human, he seems to want to turn the slightest issue into a racist song and dance, i'll go on the record and say "he the one who's racist".

I've told youse before that i have Abbo in me, this guy embarrasses me.

Maoris do it all the time and no-one gets all bent out of shape over it

Doing the dance that they did only incites people, Sam Newman summed it up well on the footy show, youtube it

Goodes is mixed race. His mum indigenous, his dad Irish/Scottish descent. I'm yet to hear Goodes admit he's half white....

The spear throw is a deliberate act to provoke the predominately white crowd. I bet he and his equally stupid team mate had a good laugh about stirring up the 'whities' once away from the lime light....Imagine the reaction if a white player was to mimic planting a flag, load a musket and pretend to fire it the crowd. He'd likely cop a life ban for a racist act...

The comparison to the Haka is laughable. The Haka is directed at the opposing team (act of war towards the enemy) to intimidate them. It's not directed at the crowd.

Goodes is not the first player of any colour to be constantly boo-ed in sport. It's the theater of sport. God guy/bad guy. But like Mundine, Goodes is playing up to the crowd for his own gain.

Goodes wants to be the ambassador for racism? Racism works both ways. Spend a month in Walgett, Bourke, Lightning Ridge, Louth or Warren and tell me the only racists there are white.

The sooner he pisses off out of the public eye the better.

If he thinks retiring from the game will stop him from being an abbo he's sadly mistaking.

My latest grand daughter is as white as snow but has her fathers (my son)big wide black fellas nose, it's how it is she to has abbo in her.

This! I grew up in a town with a rather large percentage of aboriginals, and you're right, racism does work both ways. Christ knows how many times I've been called a "white ****".

So it's ok for the umpires to be booed week in week out and called all the names under the sun yet ONE player suddenly gets booed and everyone looses their ****.

There's a meme on Facebook regarding this ATM.

People forget the umpires are human too just like Goodes etc yet they (the fans) carry on like ****wits abusing them every week.

Very good point. Umpires cop a lot of **** for doing their job yet don't take it to heart and have a big public sook. Adam Goodes could learn from them.
