Goodes is one of 71 indigenous players currently playing in the AFL. Considering he's the only one being booed it would indicate that Goodes is the problem.

Thurston and Inglis are planning similar war dances in the NRL this week in support of Goodes. Interesting to see who they direct their tribal dances at.

I would've thought JT mightve have learnt a lesson after the SOO controversy when he gethered the other QLD indigenous players took the SOO shield and had their photos taken with it without the 'whities'. I know Cameron Smith wasn't impressed...

He has learned well from Julia Gillard and her 'misogyny' spiel...

Call something that isn't by a name that is meant for something else but gets everybodies hair on the back of the neck up and your name is in the media...

But some will see through the garbage you are sprouting...

With Goodes as an Australian of The Year, he should be the perfect role model for Aboriginal kids to aspire to as they grow up. Unfortunately, this current hoopla surrounding him doesn't help his cause.

He isn't getting booed because of race, he is getting booed because as it currently stands, he is in the same league as Fevola, Carey and Sam Newman as he currently acting like a tool. Because of the pedestal he is now on, he is following Anthony Mundine's lead and playing, and milking the race card at every opportunity when there is something said untowards them.

The booing is a normal part of sport if they don't like someone or something to do with the game, but in regards to moving forward with "closing the gap", Adam playing the race card in regards to the booing is moving that progress back.

Oddly enough, I have many indigenous friends and business acquaintances who all say that he's a ******** and not helping their cause at all.
The vast majority of them even said he should not have been Australian of the Year.

Thurston and Inglis?

Well there are two upstanding citizens if ever there were any. Thurston - wasn't he involved in the Coffs Harbour Bulldogs "incident"? Inglis - wasn't he involved in a "domestic" situation?

Who's next? Mundine?

The NSW try scorer in the 3th SOO match this year (can't think of his name),he runs 50-60 meters and scores i didn't boo him and i certainly didn't cheer for him because he's indigenous, the booing problem with Adam is bought about by plain old you don't cheer for the opposition.

J.T and G.I and other big names have no choice but to show support to Adam.

People boo Goodes because he's a cock. not because of his skin colour.

There's a post from Facebook that sums it up perfectly.

First lady says we boo Goodes because he's a dick

Second lady says why do you boo

First lady says because it's better than yelling out you're a ****

So now that Goodes has managed to drag himself out of the foetal position, what happens if a fan wants to boo him during the game for his poor play or some other totally non-racial reason?

The official's from both clubs for his 'return' match are appealing to spectators to not boo.
Now tell me, if someone asks a large group not to do something what do they usually do - the exact opposite!
