ANZAC Day - speculation and argument for changes vs Pies 2019


#123

I’ve seen it mentioned that a band has played before, of recent times I only attend home Anzac games, but I don’t ever remember seeing one.

And I’m not talking about the military band either. Does anyone else know of one that has played?

Parish stands up in big games. Stays in.


#125

Noiseworks


#126

Oh that does take me back.


#127

Have to agree with this guelf a flexible tough nut offers more then bags at the moment.

Stringer defensive pressure has been massive for us this year and allows for us to play another medium fwd. I think lav can fit in up fwd. Alternately, Smith and Mcg can rotate fwd and both can hit the scoreboard. Mcg has kicked 4 in the last 2 games. Not bad for another back flanker junior who doesn’t kick da goals. Is it?


#128

So much Walla waffle. Played with a cork, has there been anything official or is it self fulfilling prophecy Blitz?


#129

That he had a corky? He had his right hip upper thigh heaving strapped.


#130

That he’s out


#131

Lav will get his chance again soon enough. I just doubt that it’ll be on the back of a 5 day break.


#132

Tippa out if sore - Smith
Hams - Zakka
Bags - Lav

Only changes.


#133

If Tippa is out I reckon you keep Hams in, otherwise yep


#134

IN: Dempsey


#135

Dangerous tackle!


#136

I reckon the same reasons people justify playing AFL on the day, work equally well for a rock concert.


#137

It’s a fair argument. I do like the solemnity in the build up though.


#138

What happens if Mark McGough joined them on drums during the set? Would that embody the ANZAC spirit to an acceptable level?


#139

I don’t understand why we need any pre match entertainment on Anzac day, other than the ceremony in remembrance of the returned service men and women.


#140

Q : when was the last time we had a longer break leading into this game than that filth?


#141

2017


#142

2017 Mark Seymour performed pre-game
2018 Ian Moss performed pre-game

Its not a new thing, I don’t see why there is all of a sudden a whole thing about it.
