Headline this morning, from Brisbane’s Courier Mail:

SANZAR, a sporting body with too many rules in its rule book, bans national anthems on Anzac Day

I’m with Crio, writing at the Footy Almanac:

Forget the national anthem…
Anything anti-ceremonial gets a tick from me.
There are concert halls for concerts and Moomba for parades.
At footy I expect footy.
National anthems are unnecessary – especially so when the competing sides are domestic.
Ra Ra Ruggers!

And even more bizarre when the competing sides are Australian, playing in Wellington – where I’ll be on Friday night to see them at the Cake Tin.

Why not join me!
