Pre game entertainment doesn’t work here.
Mainly because the cost of good entertainment is too high to warrant and the low cost crap is ignored by the general public and becomes a waste of money.
Comparing our entertainment to USC’S is useless. A team like Seattle had Pearl Jam playing a short gig outside the ground on certain occasions mainly because Seattle can afford to foot the bill, own and run the facility and because the band loves the team and is willing to be underpaid.
Compare that to us where Essendon don’t own the ground, can’t source a band anywhere near as they’d prefer touring overseas and certainly can’t afford an hour of the bands time.
Unless fans are willing to pay extra for it through ticket pricing, any decent entertainment won’t be worth it.
