As opposed to pointing her out to security to be marched out of the ground in front of thousands of people, many of whom booed at yelled abuse at her on the way? Yes. If he wanted to do something it could've waited until after the game.
I'm really glad that someone is finally sticking up for this little girl.

Years on, it's really easy to see that the feelings of one 13 year old were much more important than believing and supporting the sentiments of Australia's indigenous community. Adam has no one but himself to blame for how he abused that poor girl in front of thousands of people.

I admitted it two pages ago

Keep up.

I admitted that you have won a tiny technicality that does nothing to detract whatsoever from the fact that bolt is a racist pos.
You are way off.

I said at the start i wasn't arguing about Bolt, it was about calling someone stupid, when you yourself were the stupid one.

You were wrong and you know it, yet i haven't seen an apology yet, you argued about it all day until it dawned on you, but no, he was just derailing.

If he was, why did you keep arguing with me?

Your argument basically boils down to
"Racism doesn't happen every time an indigenous player takes the field, therefore it never happens."

Ten pages ago you were posting that using the term "Abo" isn't racist. (These posts i assume were reported and deleted). Maybe you just don't understand what being racist is?
No I understand that you just are defending your player to the hilt when like I said, if he was the only one being aboriginal that was constantly booed, then that tells every sensible person that it was because they didn't like him as a person. And I don't care about the abbreviated term abo as I think that is just petty saying that's racist. And it's my right to think that whether you or anybody else thinks it is.

At what?

Are you saying you apologised to the person you called stupid?
Yes - my exact words were “i apologise unreservedly”

I have no problem with changing my mind if i feel ive been proven wrong - i also have no problem with not going to another thread and repeating something if proven wrong - unlike many other posters here.

Some time ago i posted about collingwoods easier than other vic teams draw than other melb teams and was proven wrong - i dont say that any more and have corrected other posters who have posted same.

I also dont derail threads with mindless minutae

Question for Goodes and his pc sycophants in the media...

If the footy public is so inherently racist, why haven’t they found another Aboriginal player to boo each week?
There's been multiple racist gestures towards aboriginal players this season.

Stop sticking up for racists please.

Oh just wait till another aboriginal player sticks his head up to decry how he and his people are treated.

As long as they stfu and accept the status quo they will be fine

Hang on, are you trying to defend Bolt by implying that he is correct?

Out of curiosity, do you consider yourself a racist person?

It is plainly racist and no-one with any level of intelligence would try to suggest it isn't. You are either trolling or stupid.

He already said he knew it was a young girl straight away. No ID check required, just turned 13, pretty straightforward.

While I appreciate the rest of your comments and can genuinely see where you're coming from, for me, that's where it ends. Once he realised she was a young girl, that's where it ends, Indigenous round or not.
What about the shop owner that catches a 13 year old shoplifting. Should they call the cops or when they realise the age "that's where it ends".

Sure they are different wrongs/offences but I think racist behaviour is abhorrent and shouldn't have to be tolerated. Regardless of the age of the perpetrator.

Nope - and if that 13yo kid kills someone the same people will be in the comments section saying “should be tried as an adult”

The way this part of the Goodes saga was played out was SNAFU, absolutely no winners. I support Goodes right to call it out, removing the girl very publicly, from then misjudgement by literally everyone. Yes, I do have the benefit of hindsight.

You want an apology, what PC guide do you use to get thru the day.

No I'm not a racist. One of my best friends at school was aboriginal and another was of mixed race. Don't think I would've chosen them as friends if I was a racist, do you?

Just a quick question for you, remind me which aboriginal spokesperson apologised for calling Bolt a racist on Q&A again?
