Eddie McGuire has recounted the Adam Goodes documentary as “heartbreaking” and “very confronting.”

The Collingwood president, who features in The Final Quarter for his infamous King Kong blunder, discussed with his Triple M morning program that watching the documentary was a deflating experience.

“It’s very confronting and it’s heartbreaking to be involved in it in a negative way,” he said.

“I encourage people to watch this documentary. What you have to do in these situations is you have to front up to things. It’s an eye-opener. And if that’s the bottom line, it’s been a worthwhile exercise.,” McGuire said.

McGuire added that he has plans to screen the documentary at his son’s school, where he will conduct a Q&A, as he encouraged listeners to watch the documentary.

“I hope it gives us an opportunity to, if it’s applicable to Adam, to get Adam back into the game,” he said.

“I really want to open up and talk about things and be open to a solution. We want people to understand … and look after Indigenous footballers.”
