No imported has-beens for the AFL Grand Final - put on an Australian band.

Meat Loaf was over the hill and over paid.

I love AFL; I’m a season ticket holder, watch the game every weekend and going to last year’s grand final was a highlight of the year…even though my team lost.

But getting Meat Loaf as the opening act – what was the AFL thinking? I was even more furious when I heard from the media he was paid a whopping $600,000.

We have so many talented musicians and bands in this country who would make a great warm up act. I’ve started a petition to AFL chief executive Andrew Demetriou demanding that we have an Australian band at this year’s final. I take pride in the fact that AFL is Australia’s game – let’s make everything about it, including the music, Australian too.

Then, perhaps the $600,000 could be better spent on keeping the tickets at a more reasonable price!

Please sign my petition, and when you do feel free to add a comment with the Australian band you'd like to see play.

      I don't care for football. I care that Australians don't support Australians. This iconic sport may like to try and start a trend. Be proud Australia, you've done a lot since you got off the boat. Fix home while helping others.
