National Anthem at VFL Finals Matches

This Question was asked the other night on the SEN VFL show would you like the National anthem played and players line up before each final or should it just be kept for the Grand Final or maybe Prelim Finals ?

some feed back from supporters

Should only be done at the Grand Final. I'm totally against it being played before all finals games, I think it loses its value/importance if it's played too often.

In US sports it's massive before many finals. Definately adds to the occasion and builds the tension. Builds the importance of the occasion. When the NCAA Basketball tournament is on its done before each game which starts with the best 68 teams in the country. Always big name celebrities keen to sing as well.

How bout getting the Marching bands as well Station?

No national anthem for lead up finals.
Stuff America. What next each player to wear caps backwards with New York on their caps wearing home boy shorts ?

What they should bring back is the Dandy Dollar Dash and Norm Yemm !!

Dosent mean the VFL has to copy everything thE AFL does FFS with crowds of less than 2000 for most of the finals whats the BIG deal?
The VFL should be concentrating of how to get more people through the gate than wasting time and money playing the national anthem.
