Fans Players

Media statement – Adam Goodes

The AFL Players’ Association and our members are extremely disappointed with the ongoing and unjustified treatment directed towards Adam Goodes.

The AFLPA, AFL and Sydney Swans and Adam will meet tomorrow to further discuss our respective concerns.

Adam is a champion of our game, but above and beyond that he is a champion human being and the ongoing vilification directed towards him is taking its toll.

The AFL industry prides itself on its inclusivity and diversity for both players and fans.

As such we call on all AFL fans to show Adam the respect he has earned from his contribution on and off the field.
