The SCG based Swans are considered to be Australia’s most popular AFL team, according to a 2018 survey.

Adam decided to call out people in crowds that had vilified him and other players, sparking debate and outrage from some in the media and community at large.
The time was documented in a recent film called The Final Quarter. Another Documentary film, The Australian Dream also covers the saga and Adam’s extraordinary career.
Goodes rarely appears in the media and now keeps a low profile.
