    He has to be offered, surely. Will he take it? I think so...as long as nobody from Collingwood past or present is allowed near him or his celebration.

    Agree with sharp9 that it's probably up to him.
    If question of character impeded the inclusion/elevation of G.Ablett senior and Wayne Carey, then in the case of Adam Goodes - character considerations should hasten his inclusion/elevation.
    Such integrity, humility and empathy, he makes me wish I was a better person.

    There is nothing in the comments and interviews he made last year around the release of the documentaries that suggests he wants anything to do with anything associated with the AFL (as opposed to the Swans) ever again in his life. In fact, he was quite clear about it.

    I'd love to see him honoured; but it's his call and I'll be pleasantly surprised if he takes up the offer.
    'Delicious' is a fun word to say
