Absolutely disrespectful. A cringeworthy moment! When are we ever going to learn to show respect towards the culture, song and dance of the traditional owners of this land. We show respect towards the haka, the singing of hymns and prayers, why can’t we extend the same level of respect here?

Did Channel 9 make a blue with their coverage of Adelaide Oval Welcome to Country?

Thank you Monorchid for your feedback, even more so for acknowledging my passion, as this is where my passion lays. Speaking on the experiences not the technicality of the game as I am certainly not the expert thereof. Much appreciated.

Purdo thank you so much for your feedback. I like what someone said one day about Pasifika community- you are not migrants you are all cousins to the Australian family. Sports diplomacy in the Pacific region is evidence of this relationship with Australia that goes deeper.
