AFL hopes to work with Goodes

AFL boss Gillon McLachlan says retired great Adam Goodes would be an ideal candidate to become the league’s first-ever indigenous commissioner.

McLachlan said the AFL was looking forward to working with the Swans’ dual premiership winner, two-time Brownlow medallist and former Australian of the Year in some capacity whenever Goodes decided the time was right.

“Commission decisions are beyond my pay grade but there’s no doubt that Adam Goodes has the potential to be an outstanding candidate for a commissioner,” McLachlan said on Wednesday after announcing Sydney would host the AFL draft for the next two years.
