Tigers wear Dreamtime guernsey for Goodes

The Richmond Tigers will don their 2015 Dreamtime guernseys in their Friday game against Hawthorn at the MGC in support of troubled Indigenous Swans star Adam Goodes.

Goodes has been at the centre of an ongoing booing controversy which has seen him take extended leave and left him considering retirement from the AFL.

Richmond coach Damien Hardwick said the decision had been made due to the wider football community becoming tired of the abuse hurled at Goodes.

“I played against him and I have coached against him, and he has given our game extraordinary service,” Hardwick said.

“We have all had enough, and I’m pleased our club will make an important statement on Friday night.”

Hardwick also encouraged fans to wear their Dreamtime guernseys as a show of support.

“We want to support Adam Goodes, who has been a wonderful ambassador for our game and his people. The vast majority of football fans acknowledge and respect that fact.”
