wow, this story was just amazing to watch unfold on live tv. I have to admire Goodes for his stance since, saying he doesn't blame the girl but the environment she grew up in.

I am on the fence with this one, you know oppression an discrimination are serious things, but this all seems like a storm in a tea cup. Have to agree with you fellas above. I am certain the girl didn't mean it in a nasty vicious way.. product of her environment, I bet she heard someone twice her age say it 5 minutes prior.

He needs to man up for fuck sake, he is on the footy field, not in the fukin kindergarten!
I am sure he has heard worse and if it wasn't for the Aboriginal appreciation week or whatever the hell they called it he probably wouldn't have made such a song and dance.

Since when is calling someone ape racist anyway. We had a bloke at footy nicknamed mouse because he looked like a mouse. Is that racist.

Zero tolerance, I agree with it. Wonder how many people abusing Goodes recently made an Abbo joke themselves. There's no place for it in our society, abbos have enough trouble growing up without shit being thrown on them their whole lives. If the girl was abusing some kid she saw on the street she could be the 20th person who'd said something to the kid that week.

inb4 abbos have an easy time cause they receive so many freebies and payouts, and 'but calling a white person a white **** is ok therefore he should suck it up'

That's a load of shit. It's not racist.

It's fucking pathetic what Goodes did but now he is seen as some anti racism hero and probably fucked this girls life up in the process.

Supposedly he is shattered by the remarks. Lol. Grow up mate, you're not 5 anymore, the comment deserved nothing more than a laugh from him.

Plenty of other people seem to think it is racist; and with good cause.

Who is responsible at the end of the day? Goodes for calling it on racism or the media bandwagon and the parents for the childs upbringing.

Well those other people are just as bad as the whinging Goodes. Fuck what's wrong with this country, bunch of whiny bitches.

A 13 year old girl called an adult male an ape and he is acting like she murdered his family. If Goodes is actually shattered as he says over that comment he needs to get his bloody head checked. Toughen up princess.

Yep.

What is just as annoying is all the celebrities and journalists jumping on the bandwagon like sheep saying how good what he did was.

How was it good?

If he really wanted to handle it well. He could of ignored it at the time and either just laughed at it like most people do or brought it up with the AFL after the game without humiliating the girl.

Has no place in society...what a load of shit...I lived in the north west and got called a white c*nt all the time, even just walking down the street.

I also think it's a fair statement that White Australians are far more racially discriminated against than aboriginal people....
Watched many hard working mates miss out on mining jobs, only to see a completely unskilled or ex-prisoner black person get their job.

Sadly, racism will always be, even our government enforces it on us.

used to live next to door some aboriginals , saw heaps of shit that they recieved , i was on good terms with them so asked them how they got all the crap , their reply was your simply the wrong colour

i am sure many white fellas have been called much worse , shit even umpires get abuse thrown at them

notice how the buddy franklin abusing a woman at the pub is brushed under the carpart , but this is will remain in the news for the next week

Exactly. I have been called the same. Who cares.

Also didn't the commentators or maybe even one of the coaches alway refer to Mick Martin as a big gorilla when he played. Never heard anyone cry racism there.

It's always a double standard and really on the footy field it's just sledging it doesn't actually mean anything. Ape is one of the least offensive things I have heard on the field.

So what about calling NZers kiwis. Does everyone have to apologise and be educated for that now. How is ape any worse?

What about calling someone strong as an ox?

That bloke runs like a whippet?

Come to think of it I know people with nick names. Horse, mouse, fox, whippet, ox, goose, pup. Going by the whinging Goodes and all the do gooder sheep following him all those nicknames are racist.

Eddie McGuire makes on-air gaffe about Adam Goodes and King Kong


DDIE McGuire has apologised after he made an on-air gaffe about bringing Adam Goodes to town to promote the new King Kong musical. The gaffe comes just five days after McGuire was the first man to apologise to Goodes after a 13-year-old fan called the star Sydney Swans AFL player an ape at Friday night's Swans and Collingwood match (http://www.news.com.au/sport/afl/sydney-champion-adam-goodes-lauded-for-stance-against-racism/story-e6frf9jf-1226650550616).
McGuire, the Collingwood Football Club president, was roundly applauded for the manner in which he swiftly handled the scandal. (http://www.news.com.au/sport/afl/mcg-defends-treatment-of-girl-at-centre-of-adam-goodes-scandal-as-family-expresses-anger/story-fni5f3kt-1226650580225)
Today he appears to have undone all that good work – mentioning Goodes and the giant ape in the same conversation.
Goodes lauded for his stance on racism (http://www.news.com.au/sport/afl/sydney-champion-adam-goodes-lauded-for-stance-against-racism/story-e6frf9jf-1226650550616)
MCG defends treatment of 13-year-old girl (http://www.news.com.au/sport/afl/mcg-defends-treatment-of-girl-at-centre-of-adam-goodes-scandal-as-family-expresses-anger/story-fni5f3kt-1226650580225)
The controversial comment came while McGuire was speaking with co-host Luke Darcy on Triple M's Hot Breakfast show this morning.
Darcy was talking about the new musical. "What a great promo that is, for King Kong," he said.
To which McGuire replied: "Get Adam Goodes down for it, d'you reckon?"
"No, I wouldn't have thought so," was the response from Darcy.
McGuire went on, stumbling over his words: "You can see them doing that, can't you? Goodesy. You know, the big, not the ape thing the whole thing, I'm just saying the pumping him up and mucking around and that sort of stuff."
He then said: "Just to clear up, when we were talking about King Kong there and I was mumbling my way through about Goodesy, I was trying to say 'Imagine the old days of trying to get people in for publicity' and I've mumbled my way through that so anyone who thought that I was having a go or being a smart alec I take that back."
Darcy: "Yeah. Not sure where you were going there."
McGuire: "Nah, neither did I halfway there I was that exhausted this morning, so apologies to that."
"But I was thinking you know in the old days in these situations the publicity and that type of thing. I was off on a tangent somewhere.
"Just in case people are thinking 'What the hell's he on about', I have no idea either."

Then you turn on the news and the media portrayal is like the sky is falling in. None of them are brave enough to even slightly put out there the theme of Goodes' over sensitivity and making a mountain out of a molehill for fear of being branded "racist" and life made hell for you.

It is interesting to note to whom the awards were given to with regards to their occupation. Out of the 57 awards handed out since 1960, here is a breakdown of the recipients.

Sports - 14
Entertainment and the arts - 11
Medicine - 9
Politics - 5
Community Service - 5

The rest are spread over fields such as religion, literature, military, science, business and academia.

Imagine if a colored kid called Gary Albert jnr a 'white pig' and he pointed the kid out and had him removed. He would be considered the worst Australian of the year! Lol
