Commonsense prevails over pettiness: Barmy Army trumpeter to play at MCG
The Herald Sun reports that a sensible compromise has been reached about the Barmy Army's bugler. Not only will Bill Cooper be allowed to play during the test subject to certain conditions, eg stopping if other patrons complain, but he has been invited to perform at the pre-match breakfast.
This is eminently sensible and once again reminds us of the pettiness of the ground authorities at the Gabba and the Adelaide Oval. Are SACA and the QCA able to learn something from their counterparts in Perth and, now, Melbourne?
