New head of the Docklands 'sand pit' needs to leave our football alone

Posted by: Neill MItchell | 14 November, 2012 - 11:39 AM
Etihad Stadium.

Leave our football alone.

The new head of the Docklands sand pit, Paul Sergeant, has told the Herald Sun it is time for new ‘razzle dazzle’ around football.

He wants us to copy the nonsense of basketball and American baseball. Rubbish. We don’t want that.

Look, this bloke is English so we can’t expect him to understand. Football is about the sport, not the window dressing.

We love the ANZAC Day ceremony at the football, not Meatloaf. And this bloke at Etihad Stadium should realise he has far more things to fix than Football.

Like the surface on his sand pit.

  • Just got back from Thailand and saw a game in Chiangmai last week. I thought it would be a novelty event but very suprised, huge crowd of around 8,000, the standard was excellent some great skills. (could be a recruiting ground for a small forward)They had the cheerleaders right througout the game and they were entertaining especially for the male supporters nice custumes (or lack of)very easy on the eye. I doubt if they could have them in Australia tho due to sexual exploitation of women thing.

  • Don't try and turn it some gala event with frilly little edging leave that rubbish to non contact sports like soccer and basketball.

  • Don't change anything, as Max said Aussie Ball is the greatest game in the world, have a look at its popularity, in over 150 years its has spread as far as Adelaide & Perth, that proves its the greatest game on the planet. Imagine in another 150 years, it might even be number one game in New Zealand, then we can play Internationals & maybe even the Aussie Ball World Cup, wow you can only dream!!!....with Mitchell promoting us any chance he gets anything is possible.

  • Agree Neil, there already is too much extraneous noise at the footy. They are much more likely to turn people away with razzle dazzle than get more to come.
