Popcorn time

Darcy was talking about the new musical. “What a great promo that is, for King Kong,” he said.

To which McGuire replied: “Get Adam Goodes down for it, d’you reckon?”

“No, I wouldn’t have thought so,” was the response from Darcy.

    McGuire must be hauled before an anti-discrimantion and racial vilification board at once. A jail term is appropriate. I would also remove his kids.

    Triple M must have their broadcasting licence stripped and Goodes must be given reparations.

  2. dd

    He was clearly making a joke that referenced the saga that started last Friday.

    Therefore, everyone will comprehend the context, realise it was satire, and the comment will blow over.

  3. Ant

    Oh dear, what to do.

    But, hey, on behalf of Eddie, I’d like to publicallly apologise to all supersized prehistoric gorillas with a habitual tendancy to climb tall buildings and happen to look like AFL footballers.

  4. C.L.

    No, Dave.

    Maguire led the charge in insisting that was no joke.

    Maguire must resign from all AFL-related roles immediately.

  5. Andore Jr

    By definition, anyone who reprimands Eddie less than the 13-year-old girl is a misogynist.
    And if you look at your watch during the reprimand, well, you’re basically fucked

  6. harrys on the boat

    The 13 year old girl should apologise to goodes on behalf of the Collingwood football club and football in general.

  7. Bazza

    Nothing will happen. Maguire is not a 13 year old. He is powerful in the media and has the resources to fight back if he chooses.
    Plus reconciliation weekend is over, they have moved onto another cause.
    This was only ever a stunt to grab national attention for their cause, they succeeded.
    Many in the media got hoodwinked in this.
    By the way Goodes looks more Middle eastern than Australian Abororiginal.

  8. candy

    That’ll make the 13 year old girl laugh and not feel upset about it all now.

    Eddie McGuire is full of himself.

  9. manalive

    Am I allowed to call McGuire a dumb ape?
    McGuire is an Irish name.

  10. Gab

    So McGuire thinks it’s now funny to reference Goodes with an ape after the furore over the weekend. What, everyone else has to tip-toe around the ape-to-Goodes link for fear of being publicly humiliated and called a ‘racist’ but not Eddie? What would the 13 y-o girl and her family make of this?

  11. Chistery

    Only self-serving tossers make apologies on behalf of someone else. Now we see how genuine is really was.

  12. Andrew

    Some more faux outrage in the media about a nothing incident…NOOOOOOO!

  13. Nic

    Poor Eddie, lol it reminds me of this quote from Bonfire of the Vanities: “Yesterday I was a respected Jewish liberal. Ten minutes of news like this and all of a sudden I’m a hymie racist pig”

  14. harrys on the boat

    Racism has a face…… and its Eddie Mcguire

  15. harrys on the boat

    Racism has a face…… and it’s Eddie Mcguire

  16. Infidel Tiger

    Racism has a face and it has a glass jaw, no chin and a fat neck.

  17. Oh come on

    Hahahaha priceless. Loved his desperate backpedaling, too. Very gratifying.

  18. Nic

    I await nanny Demetriou’s call for McGuire to be educated and counselled.

  19. C.L.

    Victoria Police must grill Maguire at once.

    For two hours at least.

  20. Steve of Glasshouse

    Better musical 1990 ” Cry baby ”
    More popcorn please..

  21. Gab

    Has Goodes heard about this? Will Goodes be holding another press conference? Where’s Demetriou?

  22. Arnost

    McGuire must be hauled before an anti-discrimantion and racial vilification board at once. A jail term is appropriate

    He’s a repeat offender! It’s not the first time m’lud: Can I introduce into evidence the “The Land of the Falafel” jibe… and the “They don’t leave much in the closet either” jibe from the Winter Olymics jibe.

  23. Oh come on

    Just to clear up, when we were talking about King Kong there and I was mumbling my way through about Goodesy, I was trying to say ‘Imagine the old days of trying to get people in for publicity’ and I’ve mumbled my way through that so anyone who thought that I was having a go or being a smart alec

    We all thought you were being racist, not a mumbling smart alec. Now go and write an apology letter immediately.

  24. H B Bear

    Perhaps Eddie can give the girl a lift to counselling?

    Win-win I’d say.

  25. Fleeced

    Have the police finished interrogating him yet?

  26. Elizabeth (Lizzie) B.

    Yes, as Candy says, that poor little girl and her friends at school can now have the last laugh. Go for it, kids. King Kong cometh.

    Eddie McGuire is an insult to all good and honourable Hairy Irish Apes.

  27. Gibbo

    Not only should he be questioned by Police, he should have it done without the presence of his Nanna!

  28. C.L.

    Has Goodes heard about this?

    Yes. And he’s upset (of course):

    Morning Australia this is what I have woken up to. http://www.afl.com.au/news/2013-05-29/mcguires-king-king-gaffe … #racismitstopswithme #bigweekinfooty #
    – Adam Goodes (@adamroy37) on Twitter

    ABC Online:

    Eddie McGuire apologises for King Kong comment regarding Adam Goodes.

  29. Token

    Oh no, a rich white man makes light of the trauma Adam Goodes felt came from the bullying when he was a child.

    I trust he will be Mordy’d as he certainly has caused offense, one does not even need to “read between the lines here”.

    Vic Police get to it.

  30. Elizabeth (Lizzie) B.

    Here is the full piece showing McGuire seeking wiggle room.

  31. Infidel Tiger

    Those Germans were right smart when they invented schadenfreude. It’s almost as tasty as pork knuckle and lager.

  32. Leigh Lowe

    Racism has a face and it has a glass jaw, no chin and a fat neck

    …. and when the private equity boys are finished with Nine, no Hot Seat either.

  33. Arnost

    Here is the “j’accuse” moment!

  34. Mark

    Jesus.

    I really hate this fucking country and what it has descended into.

    How do they now “counsel” the girl or whatever the fuck they want to do, reeducate her, when probably the most powerful of all of her antagonists has done the same thing.

    The girl has every right to learn that the lesson of what has happened to her is adults are full of shit and lie to gain attention.

  35. Leigh Lowe

    Ah yes IT …. der kassler unt sauerkraut mit der side servink of schadenfreude

  36. Leigh Lowe

    I think we need to question Maguire’s upbringing, his family, his circle of friends, the whole kit ‘n kaboodle.
    I mean, where does he learn this stuff.
    (Just a reprise of last Saturday morning on their ABC)

  37. Oh come on

    By god the media folk are being so goddamned precious about this. That stupid prat commentator on Lizzie’s link:

    [addressing hosts] “It goes back to the language used by the 13 year old on Friday night – [turn to camera] which was a disgraceful comment, I’m not going to repeat it again – the comment was from a 13 year old towards Adam Goodes, Adam Goodes made an official complaint about it, Adam Goodes dealt with it very very I think honourably, very respectfully, on Saturday…”

    Fuck off you wanker.

  38. Leigh Lowe

    Those Germans were right smart when they invented schadenfreude. It’s almost as tasty as pork knuckle and lager.

    Please IT …. get it right.
    One never serves schadenfreude with pork knuckle.
    Schadenfreude is best served cold.

  39. Gab

    Look it’s not McGuire’s fault. He’s just repeating something he heard at the footy.

  40. Leigh Lowe

    To which McGuire replied: “Get Adam Goodes down for it, d’you reckon?”
    “No, I wouldn’t have thought so,” was the response from Darcy.

    And there is the most amazing thing about this whole thing.
    That Olympic standard sycophant Luke Darcy responds to Eddy with a “No”.

  41. Oh come on

    He’ll just put it down to a career spent trying to one-up Sam Newman and move on.

  42. Leigh Lowe

    By god the media folk are being so goddamned precious about this. That stupid prat commentator on Lizzie’s link:

    Exactly OCO.
    The meeja have been falling all over each other, each trying to be purer than each other.
    I doubt we have seen such collective public sycophancy since the pre-revolutionary days of French Royal court.

  43. Tom

    Maguire is one of Them. He can do what he likes because shut up.

    I’m tiping he and his Labor MP brother Frank are looking for a safe state seat for Goodes as we speak.

  44. Elizabeth (Lizzie) B.

    Goodes on Twitter:

    Morning Australia this is what I have woken up to.

    Not Goodes’ Morning Australia? Poor little petal had better go back to bed then.

  45. Pedro the Ignorant

    Hohohohoho.

    Last weekend, His Lordship Eddie was going round to that little girl’s house to set her on the path to righteousness (Collingwood style).

    This is nearly as much fun as will be Red Kezza’s meltdown on election night.

    Lovely word, schadenfreude. 🙂

  46. Token

    Morning Australia this is what I have woken up to.

    Like Nova Peris, its all about him.

  47. Jarrod

    Darcy was straight into self pres mode right there.

  48. Leigh Lowe

    He’s a repeat offender! It’s not the first time m’lud: Can I introduce into evidence the “The Land of the Falafel” jibe

    From memory Arnost, justice was dealt swiftly and summarily in that case.
    This was just after Eddy’s failed stint in Sydney as Nine CEO (ie Jamie’s mate).
    Sheedy bounced straight back at the falafel comment with “As Eddy knows, Sydney is a tough town. Not everyone can make a go of it up here”
    To the neutral corner Sheeds …… 1 …… 2 …… 3 ….. 4

  49. Alan Moran

    Unlike the 13 year old, Eddy knows that the ape epithet has racialist undertones. Will he be counselled? No – friends of the left clerisy are immune from teh needm

  50. Elizabeth (Lizzie) B.

    Tom, I think Goodes has blotted his copy book a bit too much now to be a winning candidate in any normal family-based electorate any more.

    His best option would be in a basket-weaving seat where he might get up on a sympathy vote, although basket-weavers don’t over-appreciate hairy footballers in the normal scheme of things.

    Tell me if I’m wrong.

  51. Leigh Lowe

    Racism has a face……

    …. and it looks like a face well acquainted with pastry, pizza and pork-chops.

  52. nilk, Iron Bogan.

    ITat 11.37, what have I said about posting a warning? I’m sitting at my desk about to take a mouthful of my pretend coffee.

    Just as well I hadn’t.

  53. harrys on the boat

    True to form, Eddie has sent Goodes a bunch of bananas and new tire swing by way of an apology.

  54. Tom

    Tell me if I’m wrong.

    I think he’d win a safe Labor seat full of moochers. His words on Twitter this morning tell me he has a politician’s black heart. After this week’s farce, it would be a fascinating contest if he stood. I don’t think he’d win a seat in the bush, even though he comes from Horsham in western Vic.

  55. Oh come on

    His words on Twitter this morning tell me he has a politician’s black heart.

    That could be construed as a racist remark! Apologise immediately!

  56. Token

    I don’t think he’d win a seat in the bush, even though he comes from Horsham in western Vic.

    As he has decided to be devisive in a way that appeals to at best 10% of the popultion, he seems the type who’ll only get into Senate through a “Captain’s Pick”

  57. Arnost

    Lizzie @12:51 – very likely. Just the suspicion of him being involved in some sort of a play for political gain (at the expense of a 13yo) will wrap him in a miasma of stench identical to what’s surrounding the Labor ICAC “stars” and the “whatever it takes mob”.

    Unelectable.

  58. Empire Strikes Back

    Better musical 1990 ” Cry baby ”

    A fine film Steve and probably Traci Lords’ best work (with her clothes on).

  59. Viva

    Oh the irony. Thanks to his mega dummy spit, Goode is now condemned to be the butt of ape jokes for the forseeable future.

    I bet he now wishes he hadn’t “gone ape” over the whole incident …

  60. Elizabeth (Lizzie) B.

    Not the right thread, but is Ozblogistan in general and Open Thread (as right now) in particular under a Denial of Service attack? Yesterday and today have both been atrocious in getting through to the Cat.

    Open Thread is mostly a lovely pic of Uluru – or is that Ayers Rock? Discuss.

  61. Leigh Lowe

    True to form, Eddie has sent Goodes a bunch of bananas and new tire swing by way of an apology.

    Harry …… stop right there!
    Enough!

    No, Elizabeth. Search for Jacques’ comments earlier on the OT.

  63. Arnost

    andrew-demetriou-says-eddie-mcguire-will-not-face-official-punishment

    Demetriou said it was a very “un-Eddie” like comment and the AFL would not place any sanctions on McGuire, who earned universal praise last Friday night for the way he handled the Goodes affair on behalf of Collingwood.

    Well that’s all sorted – move allong, nothing to see… Oh yeah, we have agreed a re-education programe with THAT (racist, vile and damned) girl…

    No, Elizabeth. Search for Jacques’ comments earlier on the OT.

    Umm. Great advice, Tom.

    Truth is, I can’t get through to search about why I can’t get through. 🙂

    I know. I’ll stop blogging and do something useful, like the washing up (dishwasher still broken and Da Hairy Ape – alternative highly-attractive dishwasher cum entertainment unit – is at work where his home-based skills would amaze and inspire, if they only knew).

  67. McGuire, who earned universal praise last Friday night for the way he handled the Goodes affair on behalf of Collingwood.

    He earned no praise from me, so not quite “universal”.
    Universal applies to every case; it must not be used merely as a synonym for “widespread”.

  68. Elizabeth (Lizzie) B.

    Thanks Dinah, but nothing works. I am bailing out.

    Deep in dishwater anyway now.

  69. Giffy

    Satisfying. The ape story blows up into a King Kong epic and Goodes will have to live with the laughter, and justly so, after demonstrating to a 13-year-old girl which of them had the power.
    Buckets of derision

  70. Infidel Tiger

    McGuire has apologissd by sending Goodes flowers and a gorillagram.

  71. Gab

    ahahahaha will now have to wipe coffee off keyboard.

  72. Leigh Lowe

    McGuire, who earned universal praise last Friday night for the way he handled the Goodes affair on behalf of Collingwood.

    Bull. Shit.
    Goodes was looking for his Rosa Parks moment and Eddie was looking to enhance “Brand Eddie”.
    The rest of the sycophantic cheer-squad just joined in the Dreyfus (Alfred, not Mark) style stack-on against the 13 year old girl.

  73. Brian of Moorabbin

    Deadman, ah but that ‘universal praise’ only applies to members of the leftist luvvie clique…

    and since you’re not part of the leftist luvvie clique, you (and the rest of we peons) don’t count.

  74. kae

    They really are disgusting hypocrites.

    RE: ozblogistan broken message, I usually open a new tab and go to my favourites to get to Cat and select the last comment on the missing OT.

    It’s been happening to me today and yesterday.

  76. Lysander Spooner

    Kae – when Ozblogistan is broken I think the text that appears on screen should say:

    “If you are reading this, I am dead”

  77. C.L.

    No no.

    “If you are reading this, I am an APE!”

  78. Leigh Lowe

    He’s a repeat offender! It’s not the first time m’lud: Can I introduce into evidence the “The Land of the Falafel” jibe… and the “They don’t leave much in the closet either” jibe from the Winter Olymics jibe.

    And let’s not forget Eddie’s famous comment that he had “boned” Jessica Rowe from Channel Nine.
    So the tally of the tape for Eddie is ….
    – Racism (the Falafel snipe)
    – Homophobia (the “Brokeback Mountain” Winter Olympics jibe)
    – Sexism (we “boned” Jessica Rowe)
    – Racism Mk 2 (Goodes to promote King Kong)

  79. Brian of Moorabbin

    I personally wonder how long it will take for Goodes to get this monkey off his back…

  80. Fisky

    Bwahahahahahahahahahaha! Epic beclowning by McGuire, who has now been discredited forever!

  81. Gab

    Eddie McGuire says he’s ‘devastated‘ after making on-air gaffe linking Adam Goodes to King Kong musical

    Shouldn’t that be “shattered”.

  82. Fisky

    Now, Vic Police, chop chop! A serious racial offence has been committed, much more offensive than what the 13-y/o girl said. If McGuire is not arrested immediately, then the police are being negligent in their duties.

  83. Token

    I hear the Wiggles are currently re-writing their kiddy songs just in case Adam Goodes wanders into one of their performances.

  84. Tom

    Maguire is now holding a press conference to apologise again. This beyond farce. Australia is laughing at both of them.

    Oh Lord this is funny,sanctimonious pratt

  93. Gab

    He seems to be very angry. Is he angry about the media making him to be that which he accused the 13 y-o girl to be?

  94. Oh come on

    According to Demetriou, Eddie transcends race:

    he’s the last person who has got a racial bone in his body

    Or perhaps he’s referring to Eddie’s bumsex preferences; I can’t work it out.

  95. Tal

    So who made Demetriou the racism boss?

  96. Fisky

    This saga reads like a Seinfeld plot.

  97. Infidel Tiger

    he’s the last person who has got a racial bone in his body

    Demetriou just described MCguire as being someone of indeterminate origin. I’m not up top speed on all this new fangle PC language but that’s probably racist.

  98. Tal

    Yep Fisk one big fat joke

  99. Andrew

    I am actually going to stick up for Eddie. He does far more for those less fortunate than the people sitting on their high moral perch judging Eddie do for people who are less fortunate.

  100. Nanuestalker

    Clearly the racist show King Kong can’t be allowed to open now!

  101. Oh come on

    This saga reads like a Seinfeld plot.

    If a b-grade telemovie is made out of this melodrama, perhaps Michael Richards will be available to play Eddie. He’ll bring more than a dash of authenticity to the role.

  102. Gab

    This is great publicity for the King Kong show due in Melbourne.

  103. Leigh Lowe

    he’s the last person who has got a racial bone in his body

    Which bone did he bone Jessica Rowe with then?
    Was that the sexism bone?

    Is this scene from Life of Brian becoming relevant?

  107. Leigh Lowe

    Demetriou just described MCguire as being someone of indeterminate origin. I’m not up top speed on all this new fangle PC language but that’s probably racist

    No.
    It means he’s a Collingwood supporter and he is unsure who is father is and whether or not his “sister” is his mother and “mum” is his grandma.

  108. C.L.

    Its amazing how brave Fat Andy is when dealing with the brother of an ALP MLC.

    Andrew Demetriou is a disgrace. Adam Goodes has been compared to King Kong, but the leader of the ALPFL is supporting the racist. Both Andrew Demetriou and Eddie McGuire must be sacked for this.

  111. Fisky

    “My comment was meant to be an ironic reference to the sort of techniques once used by some public relations consultants to publicise new shows,” McGuire said.

    What self-serving tosh! He made a blatantly racist comment and refuses to admit it. Why aren’t the Vic Police interrogating him NOW?

  112. C.L.

    All we need now is prickle-headed Counselor-of-the-Nation Jeff Kennett to weigh in, insisting Eddie be left alone lest he commits suicide.

  113. johno

    Now, Vic Police, chop chop! A serious racial offence has been committed, much more offensive than what the 13-y/o girl said. If McGuire is not arrested immediately, then the police are being negligent in their duties.

    On a more serious note, the Vic police asked the Big Sook whether he wanted to press charges. That raises the question, what possible charges could there be in the State of Victoria that this girl could be found guilty of.

    You would think that in a State with a government with the word Liberal in its name, there wouldn’t be any laws that you could charge someone for doing what she did.

    Surely that’s not possible.

  114. C.L.

    Oh no:

    A siege situation has developed in downtown Melbourne over all this.

  115. Gab

    Oh dear. CL you’re racist very witty.

  116. dd

    “My comment was meant to be an ironic reference to the sort of techniques once used by some public relations consultants to publicise new shows,” McGuire said.

    I have admit that’s how it comes across… as a sly, ironic one-liner. However I took it as a joke about the controversy itself, not random mockery of racists.

    But that’s the kind of ambiguous double-entendre that doesn’t work in this explosively charged debate.

  117. Gab

    Yet another 30 minute presser over someone calling Goodes an ape.

    We are a nation of racists.

  118. Rabz

    Where’s Sam Newman?

    Surely he could help resolve this imbroglio in his usual sensitive, nuanced manner?

  119. Fisky

    However I took it as a joke about the controversy itself, not random mockery of racists.

    I thought he was just making light of the situation. But given he was the leader of the lynch mob against young Julia, he hadn’t a leg to stand on.

  120. Giffy

    Thanks for the Kinks reminder, Splatacrobat.
    Oh hahahaha How truly awful for Eddie

  121. Tom

    FMD. They about to wheel out the president and coach of the Sydney Swanettes to further extend the Goodes farce. The producers of King Kong can hardly believe their luck: millions of dollars of free PR.

  122. Token

    That raises the question, what possible charges could there be in the State of Victoria that this girl could be found guilty of.

  123. larrikin

    dd, if Sanctimonious Ed and Fat Andy had shown a tenth of the understanding and latitude to the 13-year old that you are extending to Eddy, there wouldn’t be this kerfuffle. Its the hyper hypocracy on the part of the PC elite, dont you see?

  129. Gab

    This is beyond parody now:

    COLLINGWOOD AFL star Harry O’Brien has slammed his club’s president Eddie McGuire over his bumbling radio rant today.

    O’Brien replied with a stinging tweet this afternoon.

    “It doesn’t matter if you are a school teacher, a doctor or even the president of my football club I will not tolerate racism, nor should we as a society,” O’Brien tweeted.
    Digital Pass $1 for first 28 Days

    “I’m extremely disappointed with Eddie’s comments and do not care what position he holds, I disagree with what came out his mouth this morning on radio.

    “To me Eddie’s comments are reflective of common attitudes that we as a society face,” he said.

    “To me Australia is very casual with racism, I would argue that many people in this country would not think what Eddie or the 13yr old girl said last friday is ‘bad’.

    “In my opinion race relations in this country is systematically a national disgrace and we have a long way to go to reach a more harmonious and empathetic society.”

    Hyperbowl much?

    And then the story ends with:

    O’Brien is a standout defender for Collingwood and one of the club’s most highly respected black players.

    AAP

    Why can’t he just be described as a highly respected player?

    A siege situation has developed in downtown Melbourne over all this

    Needs Adam Goodes’ head photoshopped in, like Eddie’s was in the earlier picture…

  131. CD

    But but but…..I have done so much for reconciliation over 30years so if you dolts want to make a big issue of it go right ahead. I stand by my wonderful marvellous big hearted record.
    Signed Eddie McGuire.

    Hey has anyone heard from TLS on this?
    She had a lot to say about a kid and an ape comment didn’t she?

  132. Filbert

    This is a black day for Eddie alright!

  133. Filbert

    When will Eddie cease his monkeying around with people’s feelings?

    Racism has a face..

    It is the Collingwood Football Club..

    3 strikes in one week, surely they are bringing the game into disrepute.

    Strip them of all their points they have won this year.

    OOOH! Has McGuire been telling more fibs? Someone posted up that his apology did not contain the word “sorry”.

  138. Elizabeth (Lizzie) B.

    When we first met and I smooched him as my Hairy Irish Ape, he said I reminded him of Fay Wray, being a bit feisty and blonde, but fragile-looking at times, and so on occasion I called him King Kong, my Ape hero and gentle giant protector.

    It’s a natural leap from a simple Hairy Ape to the biggest Ape of them all. 🙂

    Easily done, Eddie. Bad luck for you though. hahaha.

  139. Skuter

    Goodes would need to swallow a cup of cement three times a day for a month before being eligible to wear a tiara…

  140. C.L.

    Adam Goodes has refused to accept Eddie McGuire’s apology for his inappropriate comment about using the Swans star to promote the musical King Kong.

    McGuire contacted Goodes in an attempt to explain away the comment, but it is understood Goodes remains deeply hurt, despite McGuire saying in a statement that Goodes had accepted the apology.

    Now he’s trying to verbal poor old Adam.

    Dear oh deary me.

  141. Nic

    . Mc Guire don’t forget said what he did after it was entirely obvious, whereas the girl could be excused on the basis of ignorance or a lack of intention. Just curious to know how many of those who howled at Abbott’s ‘he died of shame’ comment along with supporting Goode’s actions, will remain silent about Mc Guire’s uttereances. Im looking at you Fairfax.

  142. Infidel Tiger

    We need a human sacrifice to appease the Goodes.

  143. Skuter

    OOOH! Has McGuire been telling more fibs? Someone posted up that his apology did not contain the word “sorry”.

    Here we fucking go. Another ‘deep and sincere regret’ moment for the totalitarian left to feast on…

  144. Gab

    You know, they ought to write a musical about this whole sorry affair. Working title: What’s goodes for the goose..

  145. Giffy

    Human sacrifice! human sacrifice!
    Hahaha

  146. Megan

    I had a good laugh when the Sunday Herald Sun had Goodes and his heartbroken presser photo on the front page and when you turned the page there was a full size picture of King Kong and Fay on page three. I thought the subbed might have been making a not so subtle statement.

    But this, this is priceless. I heard his stuttering self justification on the radio on the way home…”I was thinking the complete opposite to what I actually said”… “I utterly abhor racism” and “I don’t understand the question.” When a 3AW journo asked him about the Friday night incident. Not the same at all. I wasn’t thinking your Honour.

    Proves my point…this kind of crap trivialises the real deal.

  147. Nic

    IT I laughed so hard my secretary asked if i was ok.

  148. Megan

    Thanks Gab…screen cleaning now required.

    “If you are reading this I am King Kong”.

  151. tbh

    There are some days when you just have to step back and look at the world as some sort of massive joke. Today is one of those days. What’s so fantastic about situations like this is those same people who are frothing at the mouth so sanctimoniously are the ones most likely to beclown themselves spectacularly.

    It’s like those 1980’s televangelists lecturing us about sin and at the same time using the services of prostitutes. The comedy just writes itself.

    The even better part is the lack of self-awareness of these clowns.

  152. Amortiser

    Eddie says there was no excuse for what he said and then he proceeds to make the excuse hat he was “tired”.

    Tosser.

  153. JC

    I just caught a crow.

    Hey Eddie you fucking moron, boiled or roasted?You choose.

    This is funnier than seinfeld.

  154. JC

    Goodes hasn’t accepted the apology…

    Hahahahahaahhaahhahahahahahaha

    Get outa ths one Eddie, you stupid fuck.

  155. Oh lord, won't you buy me.....

    AFL caves and investigates Eddie under the racial vilification code…….waaaaaahahahahahahahahahahah…

  156. candy

    Perhaps Eddie McGuire and Adam Goodes will gain a little awareness of how the child felt last week and what they did to her.

  157. CD

    McGuire is now going to AFL Camp ReEducation so sayeth the news.
    Gotta love it don’t you?

    Hahahahahahaha!

    Try living through the 50’s and 60’s and 70’s as a wog. Talk about having to grow one helluva backbone. No doubt the same with many nationalities. Wasn’t good fun but now we hit the other extreme of victimhood.

  158. JC

    Try living through the 50?s and 60?s and 70?s as a wog. Talk about having to grow one helluva backbone.

    “sactly.. lol.

    You really had to work that extra hard to get an good looking anglo gal to like you. Man it was hard… I’m talking more about the 70’s and 80’s.

    The indig appear to be softcocks in comparison.

  159. Fisky

    Goodes hasn’t accepted the apology…

    Hahahahahaahhaahhahahahahahaha

    Get outa ths one Eddie, you stupid fuck.

    Hahaha! I wouldn’t accept it either. It shows that McGuire’s “apology” last Friday on behalf of the girl was totally insincere.

  160. jupes

    Perhaps Eddie McGuire and Adam Goodes will gain a little awareness of how the child felt last week and what they did to her.

    No hope. It’s all about them.

  161. Fisky

    Hang on a minute. I googled the phrase “Adam Goodes has refused to accept Eddie McGuire’s apology”, and it came up in an SMH article. However, the same article has been amended to exclude this phrase. I think someone (probably Andrew D) has been leaning on Goodes to accept the apology, and they have changed the media story accordingly.

    There is, however, no evidence of any statement by Goodes accepting any apology. I think the AFL and the media are running interference.

  162. Oh come on

    Personally I think Goodes should tune out the deafening chorus of PC suckholes expressing outrage and sympathy in ever increasing waves of extravagance. This would help him grow a few extra layers of skin, which are clearly very sorely needed. Shit, if he’s deeply deeply hurt by a comment that would rate no more than a 3 out of 10 on the racial offensiveness scale, I’d hate to see what happens when some bigot really chews him out, poor petal.

    That being said, Eddie McGuire must be made to eat this triple-decker shit sandwich and lick up all the crumbs. I don’t reckon his comment in isolation is any more than a slightly risque pisstake on the initial furore, but he deserves to swing, considering he was one of the leading torch and pitchfork-wavers marshaling the mob.

  163. Fisky

    Just watched this video.

    http://www.guardian.co.uk/sport/2013/may/29/eddie-mcguire-adam-goodes-remarks

    Eddie McGuire looks like a Trotskyite at the Moscow Show Trials. He’s petried.

    Eddie McGuire is a Leftist hypocrite. Somebody rightly compared him to Al Gore. That is the perfect analogy in my view. Both are rotund hypocrites who want to apply one standard to the proles and another standard to themselves. Both deserve to be banned from public life.

  165. jupes

    Eddie McGuire looks like a Trotskyite at the Moscow Show Trials.

    Yes he did. Good.

    However it was noted that while he mentioned Kate Lundy (WTF?), he didn’t mention the 13 yr old girl during his pathetic performance. She has more class than McGuire, Goodes and Demitriou put together.

  166. Gab

    13 yr old girl… She has more class than McGuire, Goodes and Demitriou put together.

    True, she even said “sorry”. I don’t see that McGuire has actually said that yet. She was also made to self-identify as a “racist”. I don’t see McGuire doing that.

  167. Fisky

    That 13 year old must call a press conference immediately and demand McGuire’s sacking. I think he would be done if she went ahead with that.

  168. dover_beach

    Eddie McGuire looks like a Trotskyite at the Moscow Show Trials.

    I’m waiting to see if they airbrush McGuire from the weekend’s press conferences and photographs.

  169. Jim Rose

    There was a reason once for the language police when racist and sexist banter was common. Someone had to stand up against it.

    When people did, many weak-kneed people – the silent majority – who previously went along with the knuckle-dragging leaders of the then in-crowd then showed their true colours when there was a lower social cost of not participating in racial and sexist banter.

    misrepresenting one’s wants under perceived social pressures is the preference falisification that Timur Kuran studied.

  170. Fisky

    Eddie McGuire’s press conference was a great act of deception. Hardly any of it consisted of an apology. Most entailed defending his professional record.

  171. Fisky

    When people did, many weak-kneed people – the silent majority – who previously went along with the knuckle-dragging leaders of the then in-crowd then showed their true colours when there was a lower social cost of not participating in racial and sexist banter.

    That’s a good point, Rose. You can see the dynamic first hand between high school and adulthood.

  172. Fisky

    McGuire was very angry and defensive throughout his press conference. I don’t think it was acceptable, and he must be sacked.

  173. Jim Rose

    Fisky, I assume we are both old enough to remember our university days and soon after where otherwise good, decent, well-mannered friends disgraced themselves by going along with the bigotry of the crowd when in public or the uni bar.

    Things got better soon after, but then went overboard with people hammering every slip of the tongue and social misunderstanding.

    The vanguard of this new thought police also knew of no way to talk to older generations who had to be given time to turn the corner and, at a minimum, start remembering the manners and senses of fair play their mothers taught them.

  174. Jim Rose

    McGuire was very angry and defensive throughout his press conference

    He has just found out what it is like to be misunderstood and hammered for a slip of the tongue. He does not like it; he does not like it up him. There is a god – a vengeful god.

  175. Aliice

    Goodes should apologise to the 13 year old girl and be done with it.
    maybe he had a hard match and was on a short string

    but he is the fault of all this BS.

  176. Oh come on

    McGuire was very angry and defensive throughout his press conference

    What does he mean by “it was a slip of the tongue” and “I was thinking the opposite of what I said”?

    So he was thinking “Shouldn’t get Adam Goodes down for it, don’t you reckon? You can’t see them doing that, can you?”

    What a peculiar thought.

  177. Fleeced

    What does he mean by “it was a slip of the tongue” and “I was thinking the opposite of what I said”?

    That’s right, OCO… he was thinking the opposite of what he said. It would be racist to get an aboriginal person to promote King Kong, and so they should never employ one. See? It all makes perfect sense, in a totally non-racist way!

  178. Fisky

    What does he mean by “it was a slip of the tongue” and “I was thinking the opposite of what I said”?

    What a bizarre statement of McGuire’s. Does he really expect us to believe that he wanted to say “I don’t think it would be appropriate for Adam Goodes to appear on a King Kong promotional”????

    Ludicrous and an insult to the intelligence of the average Australian (which is saying something). McGuire should be sacked for his deceit alone.

  179. Gab

    What a bizarre statement of McGuire’s

    It was a piss-weak excuse along with his “I was tired”.

    Even the 13 y-o didn’t make excuses.

  180. Fisky

    LOL Fleeced. Luckily, I have at hand the original statement of McGuire’s that he had intended to make, but somehow got sidetracked (stress, tiredness, work pressure…):

    My fellow Australians. I would like to take this opportunity to put on the record my view that under no circumstances should Adam Goodes be employed in the latest King Kong promotion. It would be totally inappropriate, given the recent events at the MCG, and offensive. Furthermore, I utterly reject the view that, even if he were to appear on the King Kong promotional in a gorilla suit, Mr Goodes should be paid in either cask wine or petrol coupons. Such views will not be tolerated so long as I am President. Thank you.

  181. jupes

    misrepresenting one’s wants under perceived social pressures is the preference falisification that Timur Kuran studied.

    wow

    I want what Jim’s having.

  182. Brian of Moorabbin

    Eddie McGuire angrily denies suggestions by Mark Robinson during his (McGuire’s) presser that what he said was racist..

    3 hours later on AFL 360 Eddie McGuire admits to Mark Robinson that what he said was racist… then proceeds to get defensive when Mark Robinson points out the hypocrisy of angrily calling him (Robbo) out during the presser for asking the same thing McGuire now admits…

    Stay classy Eddie.

  183. Oh come on

    Bwahahahahahahha

    Still, that is kind of a mouthful for a bird of little brain like Eddie, despite having written it down in full on the undersides of both arms (I expect Eddie will release photos to prove what he was really going to say). Perhaps I can see how he’d accidentally blurt out “Should get Adam Goodes down for it, do you reckon? You can see them doing that, can’t you?”

  184. egg_

    We’re left in no doubt that Eddie is King Nong…
