AFL coach comparing lost game to Anzacs?


I just can't begin to explain what's wrong with this.

I guess I should disclose that I intensely dislike AFL and the religious following it seems to generate, but even if I liked it comparing a victory or loss to the fallen Australian and New Zealand diggers of war is just… it's like comparing a ritualistic bonfire to war. Sheesh.

Clipmarked from ABC News:

Furious Collingwood coach Mick Malthouse says the Magpies let the Anzacs down after Essendon booted three late goals to snatch a thrilling five-point victory in the annual AFL blockbuster at the MCG.
