Default MCG bans Mexican wave

MCG bans Mexican wave



The Mexican wave will be banned when Australia takes on New Zealand at the MCG on Sunday, with plain-clothed police placed around the ground looking for any wave starters.

Superintendent Mick Williams said Cricket Australia and the Melbourne Cricket Ground decided to ban the Mexican wave at the event, and had asked police to enforce this on Sunday.

"It's often not just hands that go up with the wave. We've seen cricket balls, bottles, ice and other objects be thrown in the air and land on patrons, often causing injuries," he said.

"The wave has been banned at all other cricket venues around Australia. Unfortunately, the minority have ruined it for the majority."

Uniform and plain-clothed police will be placed strategically in the crowd to act as spotters of any groups that attempt to start the wave. Once identified, police will monitor movements and act to evict them from the ground.

The cricket match is expected to attract 50,000 fans and police are urging patrons to be responsible.

Superintendent Williams said police, together with security and staff, would closely monitor crowd behaviour and would act to ensure the safety of all patrons. "We will use the stadium's extensive closed circuit television system to monitor crowd behaviour. Anyone seen behaving inappropriately will be evicted," he said.

Police will also be trialling live stream video technology to transmit live footage from a hand-held camera through a wireless connection to the police command post.

"This technology gives police the flexibility to monitor live footage of any location in the ground and swiftly act if necessary.

"CCTV and the new technology will both be used to zero in on anyone causing trouble or behaving disruptively. Camera operators are very experienced in detecting people consuming alcoholic drinks not purchased from the venue, and anyone found to be doing so will be evicted immediately."

Police have also warned that anyone who throws projectiles, and anyone evicted from the venue for disruptive behaviour who then re-enters the stadium, may face an on-the-spot fine.

Police will also be patrolling local licensed venues before and after the cricket to ensure responsible service of alcohol.

Consumption of alcohol in Yarra Park next to the MCG is prohibited.

They don't like people acting as one, it might give them ideas.

It's to "ensure the safety of all patrons." Increased surveillance, police carrying wirless cameras and 'roving bugs' in our mobile phones is all for our own good, we should be thanking the government for protecting us rather than being ungrateful sarcastic twats!
