It’s Not Cricket

So what happened to United Arab Emirates 
cricket fans - the Dubai International Cricket 
Stadium seats 25,000 but there’s a few less
seats occupied than that; if you’d easily fit all 
of Essendon’s certifiable supporters vacantly 
into space left, there’d still be a slew’s room 
for cricketing devotees to pay for a privilege 
to be seen in that magnificent stadium 

Come to think of it - maybe that’s where the 
next AFL Grand Final should be; imagine if 
we got Melbourne’s mob to travel to Dubai; 
UAE’d get an obviously needed education - 
and they’d become profound AFL fans, and 
we’d get to watch cricket at our ground
