The Damo Bit - 21st April 2010
Posted by southstander on April 21 2010 - 19:45:16


There is no reason why we shouldn't have a bit of culture in our game.

Why should our stadia be drag dull affairs rather than a canvas for modern art?

An artful Damo is here....

Time For Super League Stadiums To Get Arty?

Ive been to many super league grounds and a majority of them are pretty drab. Whilst Im a strong believer that its the people that make the place rather than the other way around. Still I believe efforts could be made to make super league grounds the most arty in the world.

We could start off with a bit of pavement art that has been made mainstream over the last twenty years thanks to artist like Julian Beever and Kurt Wenner. If it was my choice wed have the likes of Jamie Peacock, James Graham and Gareth Carvell running at full pelt drawn in 3D on the pavements of their respective stadiums that their clubs play at. Getting a picture next to such art would be a match day experience that most super league fans would look forward to Im sure.

One better than pavement art is the stuff that gets churned out by street artist Banksy. Personally Im not much of a fan but thousands world wide are and it would be a good bandwagon to jump on for super league stadiums. Just think of the thousands of Banksy fans coming to a rugby league match for the first time to just see the art. It could be a match in heaven because both Rugby League and street art has evolved from rugby union and dull concrete jungles respectively.

Whilst rugby leagues relations with the dark side has improved since the breakaway. Artist like Banksy are described as simple vandalism that have no place in our towns and cities in the UK. This attitude is normally churned out by elitist organisations like keep Britain tidy who really should be called keep Britain in the dark ages.

Finally I think that rugby league stadia should have art exhibitions on a regular basis to make that match day experience just that bit extra special.

Hope you enjoyed this weeks ideas and lets hope we can beat St Helens in an Arty way like we did in 2004 70 - 0.
