I don't care what anyone says, I'm going to boo the Welcome to Country when it comes on during the game at the local RSL. I'm sure this totally normal and not insane behaviour will go over well with the silent majority there.

Sam Newman is in the hall of fame for his football career. His politcal opinions should have nothing to do with it.

Do you want Margaret Court Arena to be renamed too?

Where do we draw the line?

Shoud we ban everyone you disagree with on a social/politcal issue?
Yeah I’d like that renamed.

<<<In 1970, Court kicked things off by praising South Africa’s apartheid policy (“South Africans have this thing better organised than any other country, particularly America,” she said. “I love South Africa. I’ll go back there any time.”)>>>


That and her absolute awfulness to lgtbiq folk - funk her.

We should be able to separate the two things.
It's not about us, the fans, I mean besides me fans are idiots. It's about the AFL, if you promote "No to racismo," how can you induct a "racist," and keep him in the HoF without looking like hypocrites? Maybe him being in the HoF proves that he isn't a racist?

What happens to a fan caught making racist comments at a game these days?

When you use terms like redneck, decent humans, morons etc. that's also discriminatory, you do realise racism and discrimination applies to all Humans not just the ones that fit your agenda?
I would like to apologise to you and any other moron redneck offended by my post.

Interesting to reflect on the nature v nurture debate. Wrong side of the blanket dna v growing up among the royals



Surely you don’t mean the Royal ‘we’ here?

Newman has one quality which is loyalty to his class. He is the quintessential, gormless, inbred, upper class twit so well satirised in Monty Python and Blackadder.
Gormless..he calls Don that every week lol

Good word gormless…

People don't go into the Hall of Fame for their personal beliefs, I couldn't care less what he believes, if the performances on the field warrant it, he should be in.

At least the No voters showed enough decency to do that, I'll give them that at least. Would love to know what they were thinking during the WTC

This may shock you, but there are people who may be against Constitutional change but who are supportive of Welcome to Country ceremonies.

The referendum is about a specific constitutional question, it’s not a nationwide vote on whether the country approves of all things indigenous or not.

It would be extremely rare - when it comes to ignorance, where there is smoke - fire isn't far behind

Despite at the “No” sentiment there’s no WTC booing. There never has been, in fact the cheers and applause post ceremony have been louder than usual.

Sam Newman is an old dinosaur with a microphone. Irrespective, nobody listens to him. Did anyone boo the welcome to country ceremony?

He's that old racist grandpa most of us had. Let's not cancel every old dinosaur just because we disagree with them on a social issue.

What's his excuse? My granddads fought in WWII which understandably left a few scars, his whole life has been one of privilege.
I don't feel that he needs an excuse. My preference is to see open and robust debate rather than silencing views we don't like.
