When my little fella was playing Auskick they tried to cut out scoring as well, but all the kids just kept score in their heads. Now they can't sing a club song!?! What is next? All the players have to wear the same jumper? No goal posts, you just run the ball up to that end of the ground and then the other team runs it back?
Junior footy club song ‘offends’ opposition
A victorious junior football side has been instructed not to sing its club song on the ground by management after winning a game.
‘On The Ground’ told 3AW Breakfast’s Rumour File the under-11 side at Ormond was scolded on Sunday for singing its club song after a win against East Sandringham because it would “offend the other team.”
South Metro Junior Football League by-laws state singing isn’t to occur on the ground.
“Singing of club songs shall only take place in the clubrooms (or away from the opposition team if no clubrooms provided) and must not occur on the ground,” the by-laws read.
“Any club that breaches this by-law shall be dealt with at the discretion of the General Manager.”
The South Metro Junior Football League has been contacted for comment.
