Eddie's "joke" was racist. You don't have access to his mind - so don't give us the line that's not the real him. If you tell racist jokes you're a racist. Let's be honest it's not the only hate speak to come out of his mouthNlolRL wrote: ↑Wed Jun 17, 2020 2:49 pmEddie's comments over Goodes were a gaff he apologised for almost immediately, and were inconsistent with his actions at the time when he approached goodes at the game in question.AFLcrap1 wrote: ↑Wed Jun 17, 2020 11:19 amHow about setting an example
Those in the stands ..the adam Goodes lot
The banana throwers etc might think twice if an example was made of blatant big shots racists like McChins.
Set an example to show you are serious .get him out of the game for 1 yr at least .
Let's all make excuses for him .lets all fall over ourselves to say he was tired
He doesn't mean it blah blah
So what message does that send to the inbred southern hicks who don't like dark skinned people.
Ed needed some re education about the context of some of his comments, but he isn't in the same ballpark as people who spout racist comments on line or from the stands. These people are punished in our game, unlike NSW blues fans who can do what they want
Eddie is the president of your biggest club which has an appalling history regarding the treatment of Black players. Let me list;
No Indigenous player before 1982 - only two prior to 2000.
Former club president stating if Indigenous players act white they'll be accepted at club
Damian Monkhurst's abuse of Michael Long which led to vilification rules in game
Remember Nicky Winmar's famous lifting shirt gesture? That was to abuse from Collingwood fans
United patriots front unveiling banner at Collingwood game.
Lumumba time at club & the racist nickname he received - this was after Goodes incident
It's one thing for afl to endorse players taking knee however I don't see how the game can have any creditability if they don't address this history.
If Eddie was in the same position with premier league club or NBA team would he have a job? The answer is no.
