Indigenous AFL Player Calls Out Supporter For Racial Abuse

Indigenous AFL Player Calls Out Supporter For Racial Abuse
By PJ Browne Updated

AFL star, Adam Goodes, who plays for Sydney Swans, called out a fan for racial abuse during his team's win over Collingwood last night.

From The Herald Sun:

On the day Goodes was pictured on the back page of The Daily Telegraph talking about his proud heritage, the Swans star was abused during his side's 47-point win over Collingwood at the MCG.

Magpies president Eddie McGuire sought out Goodes in the Swans rooms immediately after the game to apologise "on behalf of Collingwood and on behalf of football".

Goodes pointed out the fan - allegedly a teenage girl - to security staff during the dying minutes of the game.

The fan was then escorted from the ground by police.

Goodes captained the Australian team to win the 2010 International Rules series against Ireland.
