Have no issue with wilkinson speaking up about racism as it is never acceptable. For him however to think it is what stopped him from becoming a successful AFL player is ******* delusional and he was delisted because he was all athlete and no understanding. He tried American Football before going back to the VFL where he could barely get a kick. Football IQ is what he didn't have, it had nothing to do with his race. It's how you can end up with guys like Matt Priddis, Sam Mitchell and Robert Harvey winning brownlows or being legends of the game because they understand what is going to happen next before or as it is happening so are able to be at the right place at the right time making the right decisions. No amount of athletic ability overcomes that.Joel Wilkinson spoke up about racist treatment at Gold Coast and BigFooty nuffies chimed in with 'well you only played 20 games, you were shithouse and were delisted because of that, you may only speak out if you played 100 and even then you shouldn't blame the club because you didn't say anything'.
Until prevailing attitudes like that change is it any wonder Harry decided to keep it quiet?
