“My fellow Australians, I’ve been invited here to talk to Centre Square [MCG precinct], in these big marquees on Punt Road Oval. And speaking of Punt Road Oval, let me tell you something for nothing – [Richmond legend] Jack Dyer would be spinning in his grave if he could see the place right now. Full of a bunch of Collins Street corporate criminals, Chapel Street designer cats and Toorak poodle-rooters who have about as much interest in football as Paris Hilton has an interest in astrophysics. Captain Blood didn’t break every bone in his body and commit multiple acts of on-field heroism and homicide so he could see his beloved home ground turned into an over-priced pre-match party for chardonnay-swilling spivs and their assorted hangers-on attending their one footy match of the year, whilst tens of thousands of hard-working honest battlers who love the game and love their team are denied the chance to attend the greatest game in the world.”

Sam Kekovich, as quoted by Peter FitzSimons.
