AFL BLAMES THE CROWD!
Four-time Walkley Award winning political commentator and Churchill Fellow, has returned to the fray over concern that the integrity of news dissemination is continually being threatened by a partisan media.
Now I’ve heard everything! The AFL and every sports commentator in the country is admonishing the crowds for booing Adam Goodes. Well, now the crowds can add Lewis Jetta to their list of people worthy of booing because, although the AFL might be able to eject a 13-year-old girl from the MCG, it can’t eject 50,000 fans who paid to have their say.
Crowds have always been a sonic barometer of what’s fair and what’s not... and they are invariably right! Forget idiot commentators, AFL administrators are the curators of the game and have a duty to wipe out this racist garbage Aboriginal players are provocatively throwing at fans of opposing teams.
Jetta and Goodes should both have copped three weeks and a ten grand fine each as would have non-Aboriginal players had they performed similar racist antics to the detriment of the game.
AFL boss Gillon McLachlan has said the booing must stop! Will someone explain to this idiot that the only way to do that is to stop Aboriginal players racially taunting the fans of opposing teams... it's not rocket science!
There are no administrators of sport on earth (except for the AFL) that would allow players to interact racially with patrons during a game.
And don't come the Haka comparison bullshit. That is performed before the game and directed at the opposing team, not at the fans of the opposing team during the game.
It seems that angry racial outbursts must now be seen as “cultural expressions” in the AFL PC handbook of how to conduct one’s self as a professional Aboriginal footballer.
There is no such thing as an Aboriginal warrior, or a war dance... it is a myth concocted by urban radicals as an expression of hate and defiance toward whites.
The true Aborigine is a gentle person who only dances to honour his environment and emulate the animals he depends on for food.
Why isn’t the modern Aborigine who has reached the pinnacle of his chosen sport seen with a traditional Aboriginal girl at gala functions? Now there’s something that would be culturally positive and endearing. But oh no, you will never see that! A trophy white girl is now invariably needed as a mark of black success.
So much for “culture” and the humbug of excuses that justify bad behaviour on the field.
The AFL should put a stop to this racial effrontery before it gets out of hand. It will continue and increase as long as commentators and administrators ridiculously support it as an “expression of culture”.
The universal respect for Aboriginal achievement in sport, successfully promoted by the “Indigenous Round”, is coming apart at the seams because the AFL is promoting unacceptable racial behaviour from players who would otherwise be the heroes of adoring fans.
There is a limit to “cultural expression” from all cultures. That limit is reached when it offends others and in this case it clearly has.
So don’t blame the loyal fans... use them as a guide to what’s acceptable.
