    I find Billy Idols entrance more entertaining than the Afl one at the moment

    they’re copping it for it being boring lol. Was at the gf with Macklemore and thought it was pretty good show even though I didn’t know any of his music.

    It used to be the 4 fastest junior players from 4 fastest clubs do a 400m sprint on GF Day

    Still like to see all 16 club cheer squads do a routine on GF day

    Grand Final for me should be an all day event 4 games

    National U20s GF or NSW v Qld U20 premiers

    NRLW or NSW v Qld Womens premiers

    National RG GF or NSW v Qld RG premiers

    NRL Grand Final

    4 games would be good but I’d imagine the field would be cut up by the time the NRL GF starts if it was a wet day.

    The normal 3 games we’ve had for the past 2-3 years seems about the right fit

    Should have just brought the Hoodoo Gurus back.

    “That’s my Team” was right up there for footy fire up songs.

    You have heard of COVID19 right?

    We're lucky to be getting anything at all let alone 4 games.

    They shouldve done more songs to replace the others. DMAs Ive heard plenty of times but theyre way better than that.

    I hope they roll out a highlights package of the Donkeys' season, with cheerleaders dressed up like wooden spoons dancing around the field.

    It was dogshit in 1990 and thankfully disappeared soon after but for some reason the young crowd latched onto it 4 or 5 years back and resurrected its popularity. Unforgivable really.

    Last game of the year usually on a hot sunny afternoon

    But plenty if time for the venue to recover

    And at worst you could play the NRLW game across the road at the NSWRL CEO field. Just needs to add 500 viewing seats

    Amy Shark doesn’t fill me with confidence to be the right person for the gig..

    Worst I’ve seen by the length of the straight was Pete Murray at the 2005 GF. It was the biggest buzzkill of anyone I’ve ever seen but not his fault, whoever booked him should have been shot on sight.

    Ok to listen to on a lazy sunny Saturday afternoon having a beer or two in your garden maybe... but to fire up the 80,000 people before the biggest game of the year. ?!?!?! Hardly.

    As a side note - surely somebody should have picked up on the fact that both the panthers and the Storm have AC/DC songs for when they run on the ground.

    Surely there’s something the NRL “entertainment committee” could have worked with, even at short notice...
