    Sydney chairman Andrew Pridham labels 2015 booing of Adam Goodes as most ‘shameful’ year in Australian sport at last night's presentation:

    Happy to hear this about Adam. Certainly well deserved. I'm not necessarily a fan of the off field opinions but there is no disputing his ability to play through his injuries and his love for the club.

    Last bit: well said. You didn't even need to mention the other stuff.

    It could only ever be begrudging praise from that quarter. Arguably the greatest player to wear the red and white, yet the desire to poke the bear never completely evaporates.
    Its very hard to live in a studio apartment in San Jose with a man whos learning to play violin. Thats what she told the police when she handed them the empty revolver.

    I'm always suspicious of what truly motivates anyone to have a negative attitude regarding an indigenous person attempting to improve the lives of indigenous people.....without affecting anyone else. What are you truly afraid of SS?

    Let's not go there. We all know the answer. Denial is a powerful thing in this deeply troubled world. Some people need it just to get through. Let's just talk about the footy or we'll end up in Open Chat.

    Can we get back to talking about Goodsey and leave the commenting about other posters? It seems to me that on this occasion SS was simply fair acknowledging differences of opinion he has had about Adam before praising, not criticising, him. No need for reading it otherwise and leading the thread off in another direction.

    As for myself, I am an unabashed fan of Goodesy and I stand by pretty much everything I know of that he has said or done on or off the field. Delighted to see him get his just and inevitable recognition as a Legend of our club. Good call by liz picking his immediate elevation to Legend status too.

    Yep, fair call BS.

    It would just be nice if certain people realise that this site, being a Swans fan site, makes this thread basically a Goodes appreciation thread and as such, kept their posts positive and resisted the temptation of antagonising other posters.....when they are acutely aware that their post will do exactly that.
