Thread: Booing of Adam Goodes by fans of Melbourne clubs

    A childish mob mentality.

    It detracted from the game. They did not boo when he took that stunningly brave make with 3 Hawks bearing down.

    There are many players on opposition sides that I do not like - but to spend a large part of a great night booing an individual rather than appreciate the spectacle offered is beyond me.
    when I looked a guy in the eye and asked why ? his comeback was to have a go at my beanie ! they are a mob of philistines !

    It's racism, but not simple racism, its because Goodes is a "challenger" to pick the terminology of that Jake Niall article.
    And they treat Cyril like a god, so it is not racism.

    undy is correct.

    But it is tiresome.

    I also found the booing of Franklin ironic.

    Frawley didn't get booed.

    Hypocrites.

    I remember chants of "Carey is a wanker" long before the affair and his general sleaziness became public knowledge.

    The thing is, the more people complain about Goodes being booed and the more attention it's given, the louder they will boo next time. Lose lose situation.

    Hawk fans/members are basically just despicable humans in general.

    It is kind of a term of respect is Australian sporting. You are not going to be subject to that chant if you aren't any good.

    Who gives a poop? Adam doesn't. It's happened for as long as i can remember down here. Can't play 350+ games at near an elite level for a large part of it, and not lose some friends.

    Honestly it's a mixture of all the above. From knowing my mates who aren't racist, he isn't liked for several reasons.
    Playing for frees (pisses me off no end)
    a few cheap incidents (Elbow to the back etc)
    Tall Poppy.
    Oh he's that good hurt our teams
    2 flags 2 brownlows.

    Now are any of them booing? Nah probably not.... But really who does boo if there hasn't been an incident that game? Dimwits? Racists? Bandwagoners?

    AC Milan walked off
    I'd like to see the AFL order the Hawks play a home game behind closed doors.

    Somehow that's about as likely as me getting a full day's work done on the Monday following a great win like this weekend.
    Before you criticize a man, walk a mile in his shoes. That way you'll be a mile away and he'll be shoeless.

    I'd love to see a walk off just to see the ramifications.
