Truthproject, you buy into the biased and vicious criticism that G Healy, Dwayne Russel and a few others peddle every time they commentate a Freo game. It is interesting that Walters is actually getting paid more free kicks this season. I maintain my view that if do watch his play, Walters ducks to try and get under tackles aimed at his head. If he did not duck, he would be getting hit high more often. Watch how opponents regularly push him in the back after he is in a marking contest, and then drop knees into him on the ground. Watch how he is regularly held off the ball. Oh this all happens to Fyfe and Mundy as well, but as a Hawthorn legend said recently, they are just princesses.

Watched The Final Quarter and quite happy to suggest it should be viewed by all and sundry. I'd be lying if I said there weren't moments that made me a little misty eyed.

What really bothered me about it (other than it actually happened at all) was how long the booing went on for and that no-one was able to actually say (credibly) why it was occurring, though plenty wanted to strongly refute that it was racist ... then wheeled out excuse after excuse for the booing, none of which held water.

The thing I did notice from the doco was the grace and professionalism Goodes conducted himself with, whilst the so called professional reporters / commentators tripped over themselves like a pack of baying dogs to sink the boot in to a bloke who simply didn't deserve any of it.

Adam, you behaved in a manner that was an absolute credit to yourself whilst under the most incorrigible, relentless campaign and I for one am sorry that you had to experience any of it.

And for a sport where its considered dirty play to target the man and not the ball, the media-mob certainly singled him out.

There was several moments during the doco where I mentioned to Mrs DM "I would have bloody lost it by this stage if that was me"
