Andrew Demetriou Press Conference
Sydney Swans star player Adam Goodes addressed the press in Melbourne this morning, following racial slurs from a young Collingwood fan during last night’s AFL match.
The Melbourne Cricket Ground, MCG, has a fantastic history and is the home of Australian Rules Football. The CAAMA Crew covering tonight’s Dreamtime Round Essenden Vs Richmond went down to check out this impressive icon.
“Football was played on the MCG for the first time in 1859 and since the late-19th century the MCG has been the symbolic home of football, first in Victoria and, with the establishment of the Australian Football League, in Australia as a whole.
Nowadays, there are approximately 45 home and away matches plus a few finals each season, including the grand final, with around three million people each year making the pilgrimage to watch their team search for the Holy Grail – the premiership.” – MCG Website.
Loyal Tigers supporters gathered at the ME Bank Centre, Richmond on Friday morning to watch the team’s open training session, continuing preparations for the Indigenous round clash against Essendon.
Those fans were excited to have their favourite stars sign their Guernseys and posters at the end of the session.
…But we believe our CAAMA Sports Show broadcaster Naomi Preece and this other Bombers fan may have been a little lost…
The CAAMA Crew covering the 2013 Dreamtime round at the MCG have touched down in Melbourne, ready for the action. Game on.
The AFL Indigenous Round is a celebration of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture and the players that have shaped the game. It also remembers the iconic moment Nicky Winmar showed a symbol of determination and pride, raising his Guernsey and standing strong in his culture.
Saturday in Melbourne will see a Dreamtime Career Expo, The Long Walk celebrations and thousands of fans joining Michael Long for the Long Walk to the ‘G. There will then be Dreamtime at the G pre-match entertainment and at 7:45 the match between Richmond and Essendon will commence.
