& # 39; A bigger disaster than Meat Loaf! & # 39; AFL Grand Final pre-show act Tones and I branded & # 39; shocking & # 39; by furious fans … while rocker Paul Kelly is praised for saving the day & # 39;
It is the run-up to the biggest game of the year that millions of viewers have watched throughout Australia.
But vibrating AFL fans remained deflated by the & # 39; shocking & # 39; pre-show entertainment from the Grand Final – brand act Tones and I as & # 39; a bigger disaster than Meat Loaf & # 39 ;.
One punter raged: & # 39; The worst performance ever! Tones and I were terrible, Meat Loaf looked like a Grammy winner! It made the effort of Port Adelaide 2007 amazing! & # 39;

& # 39; If this is what AFL is going to serve as pre-game entertainment, they are better off if they don't have one, & # 39 ;, a dissatisfied punt said.
While another said: & # 39; Can we please skip all this s ** t entertainment? & # 39;
