Can't see any logic in your argument. If the guys a racist (which would be hard for anyone to dispute ) why then would any of his arguments have any credibility whatsoever; unless of course someone happened to be of a similar persuasion.

In other words, you've come up empty.


This was to be expected.  I get the same result every time.

Booing of AFL footballers has nothing to do with their race they are generally booed for their on field actions.
Pendlebury personally was not booed , the booing when he was presented with his medal was a carryover from the booing of the umpires.

The scarf waving from Sheedy's mob was obviously racist.


Chris Lewis was playing for the Eagles at the time.


What else could it have been other than racism. 


This is exactly how stupid people like Gunbower are.

People always make fun of off field behaviour by fans in sports but the AFL had some bad fan violence in last few years.

Is telling an umpire he speaks like a little girl such a heinous crime?

What did the umpire say?

Or was his "voice"  ridiculed?

It's to do with the always politically correct AFL objecting to gender bias. 


Thanks to people like you Cockroach, this is what we are coming to.

He was penalised but said he did not hear the umpire and was indeed ridiculing the voice

I see the politically correct AFL is going to ban brawling spectators for life from AFL games across Australia if they are convicted of violence and affray at games nationwide.

That is just a motherhood statement from the AFL. How in Heaven will that be policed ? If a thug has been convicted in Melbourne and rolls up at the Sydney Cricket Ground to watch a game the following season, let alone in ten years time ,who would ever know who he was or what he looked like ? Are they intending to have photo IDs of those convicted at each ground and gate attendants are to eye off every person flowing through the turnstiles ? Good luck with that. :shy:

 If Rick Renzella, who was rubbed out for life for the Royal School ring in back in the 1070s, walked through the gates of Flemington  tomorrow I reckon none of the gate attendants would have ever heard of him. let alone what he looks like 40+ years after he was given life from attending any race meeting. That would probably apply to most of the officiating stewards.

How do the AFL think they would be any different ?

AFL ‘apologises unreservedly’ for Adam Goodes saga
PerthNow
June 7, 2019 2:17PM


The AFL has issued an extraordinary statement on behalf of the league and its 18 clubs, apologising for failures during the Adam Goodes controversy.


It comes on the eve of the first public screening of ‘The Final Quarter’, a documentary by Ian Darling about the final years of the former Sydney star’s career and the racism and discrimination of that period.


The full statement is below:


“The Australian Football League and the 18 AFL Clubs have come together to make this statement on behalf of our members, administrators, staff and players.


“The history of the game says that Australian Rules has officially been played for 161 years.


“Yet, for many years before, Aboriginal history tells us that traditional forms of football were played by Australia’s first peoples all over Australia, most notably in the form of Marngrook in the Western Districts of Victoria. It is Australia’s only Indigenous football game – a game born from the ancient traditions of our country. It is a game that is proudly Australian.


“Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander players are some of the most extraordinary players that the game has seen, and football has played a part in positive social change for many people and communities.


“2019 will see the release of two important films about football, racism and discrimination. The films focus on the treatment of Adam Goodes, one of the game’s greatest champions, and tell the story of Australia’s history with the First Peoples of this land.


“Through Adam’s story, we see the personal and institutional experience of racism. We see that Australia’s history of dispossession and disempowerment of First Nation’s people has left its mark, and that racism, on and off the field, continues to have a traumatic and damaging impact on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander players and communities.


“The treatment of Adam challenges us, and our right to be considered Australia’s indigenous football code. Adam, who represents so much that is good and unique about our game, was subject to treatment that drove him from football. The game did not do enough to stand with him, and call it out.


“We apologise unreservedly for our failures during this period.


“Failure to call out racism and not standing up for one of our own, let down all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander players, past and present.


“Our game is about belonging. We want all Australians to feel they belong and that they have a stake in the game. We will not achieve this while racism and discrimination exists in our game.


“We pledge to continue to fight all forms of racism and discrimination, on and off the field.


“We will stand strongly with all in the football community who experience racism or discrimination.


“We will listen to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander players and communities to learn about the impact of racism and in doing so, we will gain a deeper understanding of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures.


“We will continue to work to ensure a safe and inclusive environment wherever our game is played.


“And we urge all Australians, and in particular our supporters and fans, to see these films with open hearts and minds and learn from the experience and leadership of Adam Goodes, just as we are.


“We are unified on this, and never want to see the mistakes of the past repeated.”


THE END


No wonder the game is fked.  It's now run exclusively by lefturds.


Been a while since the shit hit the fan but I'll ask the same question I asked back when this was happening.


If Goodes was booed because people were racist, why wasn't his teammate Micky O'Laughlin booed?


Why hasn't every single frigging Rioli been booed?  What about the Kicketts or the Krakouers? 


Why isn't the booing of Ablett racist? 


Some people didn't like Goodes because of his incessant playing for free kicks and bitching like a little girl when he didn't get one.


He shares this crap carry on with a modern player - Michael Walters from the Dockers.  He shits me too.  Great little player


who wants to umpire the game and always plays for a free kick rather than just playing the ball.  Whinges every time he doesn't get one.


Goodes was a whiner all his career and it pissed some people off.  His constant harping about racism pissed people off who just wanted


to go and watch the footy. 


His treatment of a young girl pissed a lot of people off too and a movement started.


It was started by Goodes. 


Now the moronic AFL virtue-signallers want to speak for all Australians.


They don't frigging speak for me and thousands of others.

 I posted that reference to Rick Renzella only recently, now I read in article published today that he was buried last Thursday...ESP ?

Goodes got booed for
A. Isolating a 13 year girl in the crowd for calling him an ape. OMG she was a 13 year old girl, who did not equate ape with racism, she was then escorted from the ground
B Staging for free kicks
C. Charging up to opposition supporters doing a war dance pointing an imaginary spear in their direction

Eddy Betts, an aborigine, is the most popular footballer playing in the AFL in 2019. Why is he applauded and not booed ?
No Goodes was booed because of A B & C above, to claim it was racism is too simplistic.

Very little video available of Farmer but this one from the AFL seems the best.

When I watched WAFL in the 60s I had no idea Farmer or the ones in video and many other stars were aboriginal. Syd Jackson the obvious exception.

And I don't recall ever witnessing any racist booing,

Barry Cable copped a lot but that was simply because he was extremely good.

I remember the 1971 GF where Farmer's West Perth trounced East Perth.

From what I gather West had been covertly practising a version of the new Hawthorn style where the centre was packed and Peter Hudson had the goal area to himself. East were very surprised to have that sprung on them that day.

I wonder if the AFL will chuck in the towel with the Suns. 3 wins for the year amid pathetic crowds and no future improvement in sight.

GWS on the other hand are a top 8 side but are lucky if they get 10-15k  to their home games. They also will be headed downwards like the Suns if they are not regular top 8.

The strange part about GWS is they chose to play at Homebush and mainly due to the oval stadium requirements. The Wanderers chose to be in Parramatta and did really well with the crowds. Different field types but maybe GWS should have found an oval stadium and pressured the Government to develop it for cricket and AFL. Too late now.

Remove Derbies and it looks like Manuka outperforms Showgrounds so it might make sense to give Manuka more games and improve facilities and promotions there.

Gold Coast once looked like they were about to move up but they sacked McKenna for Eade and subsequently fizzled. Didn't help that Ablett got injured.

I agree jfc. Great link too. I find it absolutely incredible that GWS in the top 8 for the past few seasons cannot average more than 13k a game at Sydney Showgrounds.

https://afltables.com/afl/crowds/vn_showground.html

Gold Coast is almost the same too.

Are they worth the money AFL is throwing at them. I am not sure.

And right on cue  ...............





Dockers star Michael Walters charged with staging for free kick
Nathan Schmook
PerthNow
August 19, 2019


Fremantle star Michael Walters has been fined for staging during the Dockers’ loss to Essendon on Saturday night.


The midfielder-forward can accept a $1000 fine for the incident, which occurred during the second quarter.


Walters was collected by Bomber Marty Gleeson in what appeared to be a clean hip and shoulder, but the Docker threw his head back.


Match review officer Michael Christian concluded Walters had exaggerated contact, winning a free kick that ultimately led to a Fremantle goal.


It is Walters’ first staging offence, although the 28-year-old has drawn criticism from some quarters for allowing it to become an apparent feature of his play.


Brownlow medallist Adam Cooney called for the star Docker to “get the flop out of your game” while speaking on Melbourne radio station SEN.


Speaking on the Fox Footy coverage after Walters won the free kick, former Fremantle captain Matthew Pavlich said: “There’s nothing in that.”


Two-time premiership player David King said: “Walters milked it ... we talk about staging a little bit, and these are the instances where it actually affects the scoreboard and draws attention of the MRO.”


Walters leads the AFL for free kicks won this season with 49, averaging 2.3 a game.


Four players - Josh Green, Brayden Maynard, Callum Sinclair and Alex Rance - were fined for staging last season.



THE END


It's almost like a have a crystal ball, isn't it leftards?


Tell me again how 'racist' it was to boo Goodes.

Any chance Worsfold leaves Essendon and takes over coaching Fremantle ?.His family recently returned to Perth.
