The AFL have started some great initiatives this year, kick to kick on the ground is back, old school jumpers are coming back and beer and pie prices are going to go back to 1994 prices (OK We made the last one up)
But we reckon they need a little help with one more.
What makes this game so special is it’s our own game, there's nothing like it, nowhere else in the world plays it at a professional level and as a result so many Australian-isms are engrained in the game.
We shepherd to protect our fellow man.
We use the opposition as human ladders to take ‘speccies’
We scream out ‘ballllllllllll’ at the top of our lungs any chance we get
Fans from opposing teams sit together and will have a beer after the game together
Player’s play to win and play for the team, not just for money
Even if you miss a goal, we give you point for having a go cause your heart was in the right place.
With all these great things we are so proud of about our game why is the pre-match entertainment at the Grand Final such an embarrassment?
The answer is simple... They are trying to make it something it is not, it’s not the NFL half time show and never will be.
So the plan is simple.
Let’s make it homegrown again. Let’s promote to the world Australia’s amazing new musical talent on our biggest sporting stage.
We have a bunch of world class rad bands in this country that have been brought up with the love of footy. Bands such as Pond, King Gizzard and Lizard Wizard and Bad Dreems have been independently touring the world honing their craft and captivating fans across the globe. THESE are the perfect Australian bands to fire up the ‘G’ before 2015 Granny and deserve more than anyone the chance to perform on the grandest stage of them all.
They train hard and play hard in their chosen game of ROCK N ROLL.
Lets support the bands that support the game.
