    Samantha Lane interview with Adam Goodes. Adam has no aspirations to go back to the game in any way, shape or form, as he is now heavily involved in the business world and wants to be an entrepreneur to grow opportunities for Indigenous people in the business sector. He has knocked back AFL hopes to join their commission.

    That article make angry, disappointed & tremendously sad all over again at the mistreatment & abuse of Adam, to cause him to turn his back on the game that he once loved.

    He’s not the first player to lose their love for football, and each instance (for whatever reason) is tragic. But for me, Adam’s was so public, and the perpetrators so visible that it feels a little soul destroying.

    +1. It's tragic, and unforgivable.

    Man, that is a bleak article isn't it. It's of course completely understandable that he feels this way though. Very sad that a decent person
    who was trying to do decent things in such a public arena was so let down by some of his fellow Australians. The good thing is that he has
    moved on and is trying to assist indigenous people get into business. Because long-term success in business can be such a positive thing.

    I can't wait to read the whole piece in Spectrum tomorrow but I think I'll need to gird my loins like I did for The Final Quarter. But it's good to see how consistent we Australians are now that Ben Simmons is the next sports start to stick his head above the racism parapet.
