Balcony Banter: Footy is back at the ‘G’

After what seemed like forever, footy finally returned to the MCG at the end of March. Joe De Petro calls the venue ‘The Soul of the City’ while Emma La Mari says it’s a case of ‘Home Sweet Home’. Their thoughts were shared recently on the MCG Members’ blog Balcony Banter.


Joe returned to the MCG for the Round 1 clash between the Tigers and the Blues.


Emma attended the Melbourne v Fremantle game.
