I feel so sorry for the bloke. Its disgusting that so many people ruined this legends send off and took his passion away. He deserved a guard of honour and to be chaired off.

Absolute disgrace. In ashamed to follow this sport right now

I am devastated, I am happy, I am a true Adam Goodes supporter and I accept that a great (one of the best ever) career has come to an end...Goodesy, you are my f***ing footballing hero! Enjoy retirement and reflect on every moment of your illustrious career!

Shame that he didnt get the send off he deserved

True humility to just wander off and not make it about him

Hope he has gone because he wanted not because of flogs

Still playing at a high level

He is the greatest swan ive seen play and one of the greatest full stop

He played every position he stood up every time we needed him

I think we have to honor him by naming our annual player award after him

Showed he still had it I the last two games when he round back the clock.

Didn't finish with a flag but ended it on his terms playing it at a high level.

It's probably for the best that he didn't get the guard of honour. Wouldn't be surprised if he was offered and refused.

Would have been booed too much and that is not the way he should go out.

It's truly pathetic that I had to type that.

Glad to have witnessed his career.

Glad he went out swinging as well.

Great effort to be one of the best in the finals for us in his last runs.
