The Sydney Swans victory over Collingwood Magpies last night was marred by a racial slur from a teenage girl at the game.
“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 left the field immediately after the final siren and was in the rooms for several minutes while teammates celebrated the win on the field. Channel 7 commentator Matthew Richardson said Goodes appeared close to tears.” – HeraldSun.com.au
