Cameron jokingly warned the Sydney media pack to keep their distance on Tuesday, and there's no guarantee he would have taken the field had the Giants' first ever final been played last week.

The Giants' 22 that beat North Melbourne in round 23 trained solidly late last week and had a light run on Saturday morning, but the club's four-time leading goalkicker was nowhere to be seen.

Adam Goodes remembered as one of Sydney Swans' greatest

Goodes 35, made a low-key exit from the game he has graced since 1999, announcing his retirement to team-mates in the sheds after Saturday's semi-final home loss to North Melbourne.

He eschewed the fanfare of an emotional public farewell out on the field and the chance to be chaired off the ground, like retiring team-mate Rhyce Shaw.

At the end of an epic career and tumultuous season, Goodes leaves the game having chalked up 372 appearances, the eighth highest tally of all time and the most by an indigenous player.
