Hi everyone.

The Final Quarter is being shown tonight at 7:30pm on ch10/win.

For those unaware, the film uses only archival footage aired at the time to paint a picture of the treatment of one of our club's greatest ever footballers, Adam Goodes, in the closing stages of his career.

Racial discrimination is the main theme and, as the website (https://thefinalquarterfilm.com.au) states:

"The film holds a mirror to Australia and is an opportunity to reconsider what happened on and off the football field."

Based on my experience & understanding of the events surronding this I suspect there will differing opinions & often increased emotion.

I implore you all to treat each other & the issues at hand with respect. Any sign of trolling or otherwise will be met with zero tolerance.

I look forward to seeing the varying opinions regarding the documentary & hopefully respectful, intelligent debate where opinions differ.

Not often something on TV these days moves me. Was pretty much brought to tears about how my idol when I was growing up was treated in his final years of footy. I feel so sad about how he was booed in his final game against North Melbourne in that semi final in 2015. People can be so cruel. I hope this documentary helps change people’s attitudes and realised pack mentality behaviour like what we witnessed is completely unacceptable and affects others.
Love my swans family and was watching this documentary was probably one of the most emotional nights I’ve had as a supporter.
