All Australians Need to Watch the Adam Goodes Documentary ‘The Final Quarter’

The Final Quarter documentary about retired Sydney Swans footballer and Indigenous leader, Adam Goodes, shines a much-needed light on racism in Australia.

Goodes became a lightning rod for heated public debate and widespread media commentary that divided the nation during the final three years of his playing career. He publicly called out racism, was named Australian of the Year, was accused of staging for free kicks, and performed an on-field war dance celebration. The cheers became boos as AFL crowds turned on him.

The genius behind this documentary is that it is all archival footage – what you see is what was aired at the time so leaves little room for interpretation/excuses. Watch it and weep.

The Final Quarter is directed by Ian Darling and you can watch it now on 10play.
