The booing of Goodes didnt start until he called out the girl. Then he did the dance and it was a free for all.
- But why Goodes and not others. I can only speak for myself while accepting that most others feel the same. I just didn't like the guy much particularly after singling out the 13 year old girl then pursuing her via the media. I never felt the same way about any other indigenous player. Maybe some racists saw it as an opportunity for a cheap snipe but I think Goodes is fooling himself if he believes racism was the main issue involved. I also believed the continuous boos that drove him from the game were unnecessary.
I feel like a lot of people love Aboriginals in a way that's a novelty until they stand up and say something about race. Suddenly they aren't liked so much anymore.
