I was seated near where the usual general admission section is and the PA wasn’t working, somehow made the atmosphere even better, especially when the fans around me decided to sing the song themselves since the speakers weren’t working.
The PA breaking down was the best thing that could have happened.

The fans at the ground were able to make their own atmosphere. Even the absence of the club songs didn't bother me one bit.

It was spine tingling stuff.

Compared to the GWS semi a week later when what'ser-face kept shrieking into her mike for about 10 minutes non-stop before the first ball up as "motivation" for we (apparently unmotivated) supporters.

"C'MOM LIONS SUPPORTERS!!!!!!....GET BEHIND YOUR TEAM!!!!!!!.....C'MON LET'S HEAR IT!!!!!!.....C'MOOOONNNNNNN!!!!!!!.....GOOOOOO LIOOONNSSSS! !!!!......LET'S MAKE SOME NOISSSSE!!!!!!.....YEAH....THAT'S RIGHT!!!!!!....BLAH BLAH.......YEAH!!!!!!!

All at about 50 bloody billion decibels.

It made my ears and my brain hurt and IMO actually flattened the atmosphere.

Who the bloody hell decided we need basketball style "crowd motivators" anyway.

Bah humbug :mad: 👎

Yeah the atmosphere at the start of that Richmond game was otherworldly. Sometimes the presenters just need to let things simmer.

It's a shame that the lions insider account was tagged 20 times earlier in the thread as this is the kind of feedback that could actually improve the match experience for the fans and I doubt they'll actually read this thread now.

I go to Big Bash matches with the kids.. the PA, Music and idiots drive me nuts.
Often they be doing stupid dances and crap while a wicket falls.
Sad isn't it that you cannot just be entertained by the sport itself.
The kids love it and enjoy the crap more then the cricket. I hope AFL does not go that way.
And yes I know Big Bash not real cricket..
I went to World series at Waverley park when I was a kid. When ODI was new
Still went Boxing day as well
