Dangerfield: We failed Adam Goodes AFL Players' Association president Patrick Dangerfield admits the game failed Adam Goodes during the infamous booing saga of 2015. "Probably at the time I was just naive to it as a lot of us were, you certainly look back and reflect and go 'How did none of us stand up and really put this on the agenda'. "I don't think anyone did go as hard as what we should have and really stand up. We condemned it at the time as the Players' Association, but if we had our time again would we have gone 10 times harder? Absolutely we would have.

Hawthorn have revealed their plans to give a beautiful tribute to Sydney Swans legend Adam Goodes as part of the AFL's attempt to make amends for the booing scandal that tarnished the champion's career.

A documentary released earlier this month titled 'The Final Quarter' has put the issue back under the intense glare of the spotlight, with the film detailing the discriminatory treatment Goodes copped in the twilight of his career.

It has prompted a lively debate about how the fans interact with the players and has played a role in the increased crowd control measures implemented by the AFL that have recently come in for heavy scrutiny.

The AFL has apologised for the way it reacted to the booing of Goodes and the Hawks, who created a spectacular rivalry with the two-time Brownlow Medallist's Swans in the early years of this decade, are doing their bit to extend the olive branch when the two sides face off tomorrow night, with every Hawthorn player to wear Godes' No.37 on the back of their warm-up guernseys.

“With Adam’s documentary coming out, it was a good chance to reflect on where we are as an industry and where we’ve come from,” senior Hawthorn player and fellow indigenous star Shaun Burgoyne said via a statement.

“On reflection, clubs and players have come out and admitted that at the time, our response wasn’t good enough.

“Obviously we can’t turn back time, but as we’re playing Sydney in Sydney this Friday night, we thought it was a perfect opportunity to show our support for Adam publicly.

''It is on you as an Australian of the Year to unite and placate people, not to divide and be a provocateur.

The AFL and all 18 clubs recently issued a statement apologising to Goodes, saying the game failed to do enough to support him.

“Failure to call out racism and not standing up for one of our own, let down all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander players, past and present,” the statement read.

“We pledge to continue to fight all forms of racism and discrimination, on and off the field.”
