Do you think any of those who appeared on Street Talk didnt know what they were doing or regretted their decision? No, they loved the attention and saw it as an opportunity to brag to their mates.

    He wasn't racist towards Goodes. What he did with Winmar was stupid, but not racist 15 years ago.

    He isn't an intellectual pigmy. Infact he is an extremely intelligent man who doesn't care about hurting the feelings of haters; again, another reason why people love him. He is perfectly entitled to him opinion without this "documentary" putting their own political slant on things to make him look bad and to help their ratings.
    "...not racist 15 years ago". The ability to satirise yourself is a rare and precious skill. Congratulations on a fine achievement.

    I think the only difference is that McGuire engages in the pretence that he does not subscribe to the views espoused by the others (obviously some not at all considering the divide in the political spectrum) or that they were just gaffes, but when you list all the obnoxious things that he has been a part of it is hard not to look at him in a similarly negative light:

    - He mocked someone for their supposed inability to toss a coin prior to an AFL game.
    - He did nothing as the on-air host of The Footy Show (and when present in production meetings) when Sam Newman dressed up in black face because Nicky Winmar refused to go on their show.
    - He did nothing as the on-air host of The Footy Show (and present in production meetings) when Sam Newman referred to people from New Guinea as monkeys
    - He did nothing as the on-air host of The Footy Show (and present in production meetings) when Sam Newman brought out a blow-up doll in mockery of Caroline Wilson
    - He used homophobic language to mock participates in the Winter Olympics.
    - He jokingly said that Adam Goodes should be brought to Melbourne to help promote 'King Kong' in the week after he was called an ape at a Collingwood game.
    - He suggested that Western Sydney was the land of the falafel.
    - He jokingly suggested that Caroline Wilson be held underwater if involved in the MND charity event.
    - He suggested that Goodes on-field war dance was aggressive and should never be seen again.

    And, just like all the others, he also has a platform for saying whatever he likes (or unnecessarily promoting his own agenda) without suffering any real consequences.

    Making fun of people with a disability, as he did on Street Talk a number of times, is not my idea of clever.

    You're especially right about his silent endorsement of the footy Show nonsense and I have no time for the guy. Just don't think he is as obnoxious as the others in the group you mentioned.
