There there, precious
In the heat of the moment a 13 year old girl tells Sydney Swans Goode “You’re an ape” and the world goes ballistic. Goode point her out to MCG Security and she is removed from her family and apparently grilled for two hours. She is 13. COLLINGWOOD president Eddie McGuire has vowed to seek out the fan who allegedly racially abused Sydney Swans champion Adam Goodes on Friday night and ban her from the club. The mother of the 13 year old girl isn’t happy;
Ms Looney is upset by the treatment her daughter had received from MCG security – who told her family to remain seated as they ejected Julia – and police detaining her for what she said was two hours.Eddie Maguire and everyone screaming “racist!” need to settle down and Goode needs a few testosterone injections to stop him being so precious. UPDATE: (Quote from Bolt) On ABC radio this morning a woman says Aborigines at the same game slashed an Australian flag, replaced the Union Jack with an Aboriginal one and were abusive. Security was called but removed no one. I wonder if Eddie Maguire is looking for these guys.
a. calling someone an ape isn’t racist, it’s rude. (I’d argue that the luvvies who automatically make the Aboriginal = Ape connection are in fact the racists here).
b. when I was racially abused in Coen FNQ, I simply told the Aboriginal in question that he should fuck off. problem solved, no police involvement required.
I’m with you Harry…..shit if I was an ape I’d be pretty pissed at the comparison. Six foot muscular male contact sports athlete brought to tears by the word “ape” uttered by thirteen year old girl, seated behind a fence and security guards.
I think Goodes is milking this for everything he can get even though he doesn’t believe the young girl understood the ramifications of the taunt. Pure political B.S.
The girls parents have good grounds for complaint if she has been arrested, held and interviewed without their presence or at least the presence of an independent adult. Personally being told by security that I couldn’t accompany my child would have got my blood rushing…..this may/should get bigger than Benhur before it finishes.
as an aside, re: “On ABC radio this morning a woman says Aborigines at the same game slashed an Australian flag, replaced the Union Jack with an Aboriginal one and were abusive. Security was called but removed no one.” whilst I’m fine with the defacing the flag (I always figure I’d rather not have pieces of shit like that saying they want to be a part of this country), is anyone else concerned by the fact that an abusive person produced a knife at the football, security was called, but they did nothing?
What could possibly go wrong with that scenario?
This shit is exactly why I swerve Victoria, not a grown up in sight it’s footy. People who think they are bigger than the game doing politics should just piss off.
Yeah I remember the outer, we was all saying things, like oh top show old chap, sippin’ cups of tea and politely eating the old cucumber sandwiches, the ladies inn crinoline frocks and us in top hats and kids in our uniforms and ties, siffing just bloody spiffing, us as members in the outer or visitors.
They get paid a lot of money, they can take a bit of ruff chat or piss off.
Pissants. Goodes and Mc Guire both need some silk panties, with hearts and flowers a my little pony uniocorn emblem.
