  • Our national anthem;

    "girt by sea, girt by sea", ...dance to the beat!

    Girt - is Australian English....we seem to have made it up. lol.
    Girt won't bite you..

    With the world going to hell in a handbasket, the US fleet moving into the South China sea to protect the shipping lanes from takeover, US Marines rotating thru Darwin..one could see our anthem as a protest song all right.
    "Advance Australia Fair" indeed...."in history's page let every stage, Advance Australia fair"!
    A protest song, an anthem of defiance, a war dance...whatever.

    Play it loud.
    Sing it loud.
    It's who we are.

    Might wanna learn the words...might have to sing it in defiance one day...

      How the Black Power Protest at the 1968 Olympics Killed Careers

      ...his show of solidarity ended up destroying Normanís career,
      Yes Norman destroyed his athletics career but grew in the eyes of most to a higher plane than the sort sighted racist Olympic committees.

      When Peter died, Tommy Smith and John Carlos flew to Australia to be among his pall-bearers. Some acts of heroism are not forgotten by fellow heroes.

      • I always get goose bumps when I hear this song & it makes me feel like an Aussie.
        I think it would be a good national anthem.

          If one can't see why a stupid song about us all being young (been here 50,000 years mate), free (till you fukkers invaded) and being 'girt by sea' (call me if you've ever used the word 'girt' outside the anthem) then you're a dead set flog. It's not a particularly inspiring song, it's irrelevant to Origin and if indigenous Australians want to highlight how shyte the song is for them (remembering that they were considered an 'inferior race' at the time and weren't counted as part of the census) then good on them. I vote we replace the anthem with some Aussie classics (e.g. Down Under) and fuk the anthem off altogether.

          Nobody should be discouraged from speaking up simply because it might offend a privileged majority that hasn't been through what they have. And FFS... most of the game's top players are indigenous!!! If your billion dollar media deal and most of your ticket sales are on the back of watching crafty indigenous players play exciting footy then you MUST support them.
          Like.

          Funny how the same people crying about Folauís ďcensorshipĒ are unhappy with the stance of our Indigenous Australians here.

              Once I hit the cans big time and tried doing karaoke of that in some pub in Newie (not a hipster one - working class with a heap of tradies and stuff). I didn't realise there were so many words to it, knew none of them, had NFI about the tune and started singing a rap that a mate wrote while stoned instead. The rap has a chorus like - 'bouncin' in the club with my boys bustin' rhymes... niggle on my dick like a rat does cheese'. Fortunately people were too drunk to spot my failings.

              Good night and good tune though (the original, not my stoned mate's rap).

              • Latrell hasn't sung it for years and won't be singing it on Wednesday. So long as he doesn't pull out his dick and jack himself off, I don't have a problem with that.

                But sorry, I just came into the room, is this a rugby league website?

                    That's one of your finest contributions, ism. You didn't even go off on a tangent!

                    Bloody well said.

                      Still very long and wordy. Ism must like typing or speaking a lot. I can't seem to read long essays, there must be something wrong with me.

                            I wouldnít have taken Latrell for an Icehouse fan anyway.
