NRL insults our National Anthem

I tuned in to watch the NRL State of Origin match between QLD and NSW on Wednesday night. As is tradition with these events they had a performer sing the National Anthem before the game. This years’ singer was Caitlin Marks, the star of the Musical Stage Production ‘ANNIE’.

I was disappointed and amazed to find that Caitlin performed the song in character, wearing the costume and wig she wears for the stage show. This is a very distinctive costume which would be immediately identified as relating to the show ANNIE and was clearly an advertisement for the show which is currently playing in Melbourne.

I have always believed in the national anthem and the patriotism it represents. I believe that we should stand with our hats off when it is played at an event. I always proudly stand and sing along and I am always disappointed when sportsmen and sportswomen don’t sing along.

The NRL deny any knowledge prior to the event of Caitlin performing in character but I think someone should have been responsible and stepped in and over ruled to make her change her outfit before she went out to sing. We live in a world inundated with advertising and I don’t believe it was an accident. My suspicious mind suspects there may have been a deal done as a clear advertisement for the show.

Call me a prude but our national anthem should not be used as an advertising platform, either directly or indirectly for any organisation or product.
