The NRL's marketing have deemed to name certain games as traditional affairs. My gripe is today's St George Illawarra versus Sydney. Nothing much traditional in those names if we want to be hard about it. What really gets at me is that these teams never played each other every year on Anzac Day. The game was the tradition for Anzac Day, not two specific teams. On another note, I enjoyed the Bulldogs loss last night BUT, why wasn't that game on today to mark Canterbury's first game in the competition on Anzac Day in 1935? I bet if there was a significant Easts or Souths game, we would have been punished with it over the last few years. I'm all for the NRL Marketing to pump up the game, but they lose a lot of supporters with their selective choices. Like shifting Brisbane's home game to a Sunday for Darren Lockyer's last match but Steve Menzies copped a Monday night. I still shake my head over the Battle of Brooky. Manly were fined for bringing the game into disrepute and the NRL, Daily Telegraph and Channel 9 used for their own marketing for the remainder of the year and into the following year. Well, that's my gripe for the day, bring on the Storm!
