derivative, or missing out on the fun?

Filed under: Football — notyalcsdrawkcab @ 4:07 am

that 7 nation army chant that got popular a couple of years ago.  the crowd humming/chanting the guitar riff.

loved it.

ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT.

don`t think i saw crowds doing it at any a-league games.  has it happened?  i`d love to be in a crowd chanting that at a game.

so i got wondering.  has it been avoided because of a fear that to do it would be labelled as “derivative”?.  on the one hand, if you copy something from overseas, you cop the label derivative.  if you don`t, then aren`t you missing out on the fun?

what if we didn`t drink beer, cos it was invented by someone else?  we wouldn`t even play soccer, cos we didn`t make it.

of course, the phrase “[insert a-league franchise here] till i die” can go jump off a cliff.  i don`t like that at all.
