Well said James. I agree.
And at the end of the day if anyone doesn't like footy on Anzac day or good Friday or shrove Tuesday or winter solstice - just don't go.
well said Tad.
Debbie, what are you actually saying? You're happy with Anzac day footy but it's the semantics of how the NRL word their marketing that offends you?
I'm not a saints or roosters fan but look forward to this game every year. There's always an extra intensity about this game because of the occasion so it's obviously important to the players. No amount of NRL marketing can manufacture that. Obviously it's an important occasion to the fans because 40,000 get there every year.
Would you honestly be happy if the NRL ignored the occasion altogether?
What is the relevance of your point about a tribute after the game????? Is that a criticism of the NRL or of fans ??? Either criticism is ridiculous.
