Dear North Melbourne Football Club,
On Friday night, I was full of optimism. I was catching up with a few friends for a Friday night blockbuster at Docklands. Sadly, I was let down.
Not by the players – they tried their hearts out. By the dickhead stadium announcer yelling in the microphone, trying to hype up the crowd before the opening bounce.
This isn’t America. I don’t need bullshit gimmicks. I need football, not some commercial radio wannabe, to get excited. I already suffer through ads being blasted at me at every opportunity, why should I put up with some guy yelling “make some noise” in the name of ‘entertainment’?
Get. Rid. Of. It.
PS. If you want to entertain me before a match, how ’bout a curtain-raiser featuring the reserves … er, VFL-affiliates? Too old fashioned?
