This topic does remind me of a pet peeve of mine when Eddie McGuire calls a Carlton game, he is very fond of saying we will get to sing Lilly of Laguna after we win. We don't sing Lilly of Laguna, we sing the Carlton theme song to the tune of Lilly of Laguna. He doesn't say Collingwood will be singing "Goodbye Dolly Gray" if they win the game, or Hawthorn "Yankee Doodle Dandy" or Adelaide "The US Marines Hymn" or Brisbane "La Marseillaise", or Geelong "Toreador". The tune is not the song, most of the clubs songs are not original tunes, we don't sing the lyrics in the original song so I can't see the harm.

Having served my country I can definitely say there is no such thing as a good bomb or bombers.


Your right but which is worse Bombers or their one time nickname of Blood Stained Niggers (a reference to their black with red jumper, just as South Melbourne were the blood stained Angels - the origins of the term "the bloods" which you occasionally hear about Sydney culture).

The adapted lyrics were:

Blue is the colour
Football is the game
We're Carlton boys together
Winning is our aim
We're sure we can win that flag again
'coz Carlton, Carlton is our name

Anyway, we should keep our club song. It's awesome.

We can "yellow and black" it with... "Carlton is our name'

I love the way he dismisses Eddie Betts as someone who doesn’t understand racism.

I heard a bit of chat about this after last night's game and both Carlton and Gold Coast people were in agreement that this was a step too far. Just passing on what I heard.

Looking forward to belting out our new non racist song while munching on my Cheer Cheese sandwiches; the kiddies enjoying their Fads and then for dessert how about a Golden Happy Time.

Delightful.

If this bloke is arsed learning French or even Google Translate, he'd know that the Brisbane song is based on a far more recognised tune whose lyrics sound like a Klan meeting if you don't understand historical context (and who does these days? No time for that!). All this campaign will do is draw attention to a song no one would have heard of (hell, I've been a mad Blue since 82 but I'd never seen the LoL lyrics before this thread was opened), and given exposure to a reprehensible form of entertainment that had long been consigned to the dustbin of history. So, well done with that.

Dude is clearly hoping on a kind of Streisand effect working in his favour.

Its a tune not a song. He must be pro racist turning everything into a racist issue.
