what do other mums think of the whole Adam Goodes story?
Me personally I don’t think it’s racially motivated. If it were, why aren’t all the other Indigenous AFL players get booed? There’s a lot of booing in general at AFL games, it is worse for Goodesy though. So while I think it’s not racial, I do think it’s stupid and that it needs to stop. Adam Goodes is a brilliant player, a legend of the game and should be treated as such. So stop the booing and let everyone get on with the game

  • The booing was getting beyond ridiculous. Pretty mean stuff for more than a whole season. We don’t even know what was said to him from those on the sideline. Very, very hurtful. He is not even a dirty player…..brownlow medallist – best and fairest.


  • Such a massive issue and booing is not good at any sport


  • I agree I don’t feel it’s racially motivated.. although that does not mean he doesn’t feel it is racially motivated.


  • Booing is not ok and the culture of booing needs to change.


  • It seems it’s no longer going to be an issue, Adam Goodes announced his retirement last night. So sad the game gas lost a great player, I’m sure the racism debate around him had a lot to do with it

    • This debate will still continue and it is one that needs to be debated. It is a much bigger issue than just one player.
