Premiere Screening

Adam Goodes

Adam Goodes

Born in Wallaroo, South Australia, Adam Goodes holds an elite place in AFL/VFL history as a dual Brownlow Medallist, premiership player, four-time All-Australian and member of the Indigenous Team of the Century. He has also represented Australia in the International Rules Series.
The 1999 AFL Rising Star, Goodes holds the record as the quickest player in AFL history to reach the 300 AFL game mark, and he is only the second Swans player (after Michael O'Loughlin) to reach that mark. Goodes surpassed O'Loughlin as the Swans games' record holder in Sydney's round 5, 2011 defeat of Hawthorn, when he played his 304th match. He is well known for his indigenous Australian heritage, and is prominently involved and associated with several indigenous sport and community programs.

Quote:

I think the biggest thing at the moment, the AFL and the players association along with the football clubs are doing at the moment is really creating environments that are very welcoming to Aboriginal players. And we're seeing a lot of indigenous players that are getting drafted from anywhere in Australia which is fantastic and that's the way it should be.

"AFL football is an integral part of so many different people's lives. It brings people together, of all races, all religions and really means so many different things to so many different people in communities throughout the country and throughout the world. It's very tribal. "
