Andrew Bogut is always entertaining and outspoken and he has proclaimed that Aussie rock legend Paul Kelly saved the AFL Grand Final pre-game show.
Kelly came on to stage to belt out Leaps and Bounds and had the MCG rocking.
"And Paul Kelly saves the AFLGF pre-game," tweeted Bogut.
He was joined by a host of others in praising Kelly.
Kelly came out to sing some of his classics after young pop star Dean Lewis took to the stage and opted to try and get fans pumped for the Richmond v GWS showdown by singing... break up songs.
While his performance was well received it was his set list that copped a heap of flak on social media for being the wrong sort of performance.
Michael Schiavello led the chorus of those jumping on the Lewis performance accusing Lewis of "killing the atmosphere," at the MCG.
The pre-game was then rounded out by the always popular rendition of Up There Cazaly by Mike Brady, described as "football's anthem" by Peter Donegan.
But if people thought Lewis was bad they saved even more of their vitriol for Conrad Sewell's rendition of Advance Australia Fair.
Sewell delivered what was a fairly slow rendition of the anthem which featured some long notes, clearly too long for some.
Others simply went Sewell over his fashion sense as he performed without socks, which for some reason rankled a few commentators.
The entertainment came on the back of what was a nervous build up to the game for GWS fans with unbelievable scenes taking place at the ground as captain Phil Davis was nearly a late scratching.
Davis, who had come into the game under an injury cloud but declared himself fit on Saturday morning was then put through final paces in the rooms and even had to have a chat with coach Leon Cameron and team medical staff.
He struggled to reach top pace in a searching test, he went down to the rooms then re-emerged for the team warm-up.
Fox Footy commentator Mark Ricciuto posted on Twitter after the teams were named, saying he feared Davis could yet be a late withdrawal. But assistant coach Lenny Hayes said the Giants had no concerns. "He just had a fitness test. Looked to be moving well to me," Hayes told ABC Grandstand.
"I think it's full steam ahead and he'll play." The Giants had Lachie Keeffe on standby if Davis had to pull out.
