Essendon great Tim Watson says that Adam Goodes would be booed if he took part in the Grand Final day lap of honour.

Watson told SEN radio on Monday morning that if the booing did not stop after Goodes took time away from the game in the latter part of the season, then it would never stop.

“I think people would still boo him. I really do,” Watson said.

“Because after all this, all that took place, after he stood down from the game for a week because of the mental anguish associated with booing, he came back and there was still booing.

“He went to Fremantle last week and there was a lot of booing. There was booing again at ANZ Stadium (on Saturday), even though it was a small crowd of 31,000.

“I think that he doesn’t want to put himself in a position like that again.”

  1. If he retired normally alongside shaw and went out in a regular fashion I don’t think he would have been but now that he has yet again made it all about him I wouldn’t be surprised if he was.

  2. Yes, unfortunately there are enough idiots out there that would see nothing wrong with booing a legend of the game on his retirement lap of honour :/

  3. here we go again everyone is trying to be attention seeking whore by keep bringing up Goodes, i don’t like the dick head but let him be so we can all move on and hopefully never have to listen to this again

    • No it’s not bull*#¥{ people do care about there personality and the differences so do enny of you guys have enny thing better to do if you don’t like him well why comment on it MYOB mine your own business 😉

  4. He brang himself back into the media by saying he wont participate in the lap on honour!! People will eventually stop if he stops putting himself in the media! Idiot goodes!

  5. He’d get booed because of a reaction against the racist media and racist Opinionistas who assumed Goodes was booed because of the colour of the booers skin.
    They claimed that supporters were racist because they were white.

    Its racist to assume an action based simply on ones race and that’s exactly what the AFL , Goodes and the Media did.

    Booing Goodes is now a ‘f you’ to the Opinionista racists.

  6. Honestly who gives a shit . Everyone is soooooo over this moron.
    All the booing on Saturday night by the Swans hypocrites against the Roos ., again who cares.
    The sooner the season comes to an end the better it is for the country as we won’t all be tarnished with the racist stick.
    There’s a grand final to be played and if the sooks not there the better the atmosphere will be.

  7. All I can say is if he’s thinking of going into politics he’d better toughen up because he’s going to cop a lot more shit there than he ever did in footy!!! Cup of cement?!?!

  8. Can everyone just not boo and just keep there mouth shut. We might not think that it is offensive but it is to him so just respect him and his culture and we can do this in to return him the favour of a great career he has had and the influence he has had on the Australian and AFL community.

  9. Bunch of adults holding a heavy grudge because of a comment that was made. HE SAID IT ONCE GET OVER IT LOL. I hope you make a mistake in your careers and have everyone ruin it for you ya bunch of closed minded muppets.

  10. I disagree Tim Watson and anyone that boo’s hom on Grand Final day while he is doing the lap of honour for players retiring shows how low their life is and should be evicted from the ground.Let him retire in peace.

  11. No it’s not bull*#¥{ people do care about there personality and the differences so do enny of you guys have enny thing better to do if you don’t like him well why comment on it MYOB mine your own business 😉
