Whatever was happening with the ‘cricketarists’ and their ‘Fender Batocasters’ (which I wish I could claim, but full credit to the Redditor who coined it) was bad by any set of criteria you choose to apply (though I’m sure the guitarists themselves were having a ball).

Top it off with my first live NRL game in three years, which was punctuated by high-velocity riffs at every available juncture, and I had little choice but to speak out.
