The sporting gods last week poured scorn on the SCG, the iconic Sydney Cricket Ground.
Sacrilege was committed all in the name of greed.
U2, about as popular a singing group as God could create were banished for trespassing. The lights went out, the sound went out and the full house also wanted out.
I and you too witnessed a debacle. To label it a "shocker" is an understatement of gargantuan proportions.
Kerry Packer wasn't there to turn the switch back on and nobody stepped up to hand out refunds.
The SCG was never intended for rock concerts.
It was, back in 1848, the birth of the habitual home of cricket and Rugby League.
In more recent times the Sydney Swans have left the gaps the calendar left by parochial Rugby League clubs.
Take a look at the SCG.
Ghosts of Bradman and Gasnier. It, in any shape or form, resembles a rock concert venue?
Sydney was blessed in having two world class stadiums to appease promoters and rock fans - ANZ and Bankwest.
Please leave the SCG doing what it does best - providing an atmosphere for our plum sporting events. No other ground comes within cooee of doing so.
It's our Sydney CRICKET Ground, not our Sydney Concert Ground.
